Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. The right bridal makeup and hair style can make this event go even more smoothly. Your hairstyle should complement your dress, but at the same time, it shouldn’t be an obstruction to what you have to do on the big day. Bridal hair styles range from simple and elegant to seductive and wild. Let’s look at some of the best hair and makeup ideas for brides who want to stand out from the crowd.
You don’t have to follow the traditional bridal hair and makeup style. It’s very easy to change your look on a moment’s notice. For example, at a recent event I went to, I made the choice to wear my own hair in a messy up-do. I’ve always worn my hair straight down, but this look was different. I wore my hair in a messy bun and added a few strands of my wedding’s theme inspired silk flowers to the ends.
When it comes to makeup, it’s a good idea to keep your makeup natural. Don’t add too many products or colors to your face. A little goes a long way when it comes to your makeup. Fresh flowers, cream foundation, and moisturizer will give you a natural look every time.
Bridal hair styles that are up-to-the-minute tend to be quite exciting. At one event I saw a bride whose head was adorned with a tiara so large that she could barely see her groom. Another woman looked like a princess perched on a flying horse, complete with a tiara, veil, and tiara. Hair and makeup trends like these are great when you have a very formal wedding, but if you’re having a casual ceremony then a more relaxed look is more in keeping with the spirit of the occasion.
Bridal hairstyles are no longer limited to big bands, ruffles, and layers. There are so many styles that incorporate different lengths, textures, and colors that you’re sure to find one that works for you. Some brides have short hair so they can wear their hair up, and there are plenty of stylish up-dos that allow for super sleek styling. Others wear their hair down with layers, which adds a little extra drama. The key is to keep your makeup and your bridal jewelry within your own comfort range, and you’ll look gorgeous!
If you have naturally curly hair, curling it up into a lazy “do” will add texture and dimension to your wedding gown. You can also make a simple ponytail into a chic “do” by using a curling iron and a few hair spools to create a loose and romantic ups. No matter what your own personal style might be, don’t let a little bit of personal taste get in the way of having the perfect wedding hairstyle. If you take your time and choose a wedding gown that really enhances your natural beauty, your wedding day will go smoothly.
