In search of the perfect hair style for your wedding day you have paged through magazines, been all eyes when a bride appears on a TV show, and taken note of the hair styles of celebrities at weddings. Perhaps you saw a style that appealed to you, but the truth is you know yourself and what you like. Just keep in mind that the hair style you choose must suit you. It must also go with the style of your wedding, whether it be romantic, classic or vintage. Form a picture of your wedding day in your mind, the way you will look when you walk down the aisle. If your dress has a high collar, wearing your hair up will work well. On the other hand, if you will be wearing a lower-cut dress, you can consider a variety of hair styles.
A professional stylist will take all the important aspects into account and can guide you in choosing the right hair style. It is of the utmost importance that you make an appointment well in advance with a stylist of your choice. If you are in doubt, make appointments with a few stylists. Always keep the picture of what you would like in your mind and tell the stylist exactly what you like and what you don’t like! If you are planning on colouring or tinting your hair, arrange to have it done about two weeks before the wedding so that it looks natural on the big day.
Of course the most suitable hair style for you will depend on various things, for instance, whether you will be wearing a veil, or whether you are going to wear diamanté clips or fresh flowers in your hair. Flowers can create a natural, pure and romantic feel but can also lend an air of mystery to the wearer. For a touch of sophistication the florist can add a little bit of bling to the flowers. If you would like to wear flowers in your hair, and if it suits your personality, do it with confidence and flair! Sparkling tiaras have always been popular and still are.
Whatever hair style you go for, discuss it with your hair stylist and arrange for a test run to make sure you understand one another very well. If you are going to wear a veil, remember to describe it to you stylist, for instance, if it will be short or long, lightweight or heavy, and whether it will be a clip-on veil.
A good idea is to have a veil on a comb that can be lifted and removed easily without messing up your hair style. A veil can give a beautiful finishing touch to a stunning hair style.
