Finding the perfect hair style for your wedding day is not an easy task, Ive had many Brides struggling with which styles to go for, once again that why a Trial is sooo important as there are many things to consider – the style of your dress, your body type, the overall style of your wedding, and more specifically the neckline of your dress and your face shape.
With this post, I will try to shed some light on the issue. Taking into account face shape and the dresses neckline, I’ve listed some basic rules that might help you decide which hairdo is most suited for you. We'l start with the faceshapes....
Oval shape: It is generally considered the “perfect” face shape, so any hair style will suit you.
Square shape: Your face seems to have more width than length and your jawline is very pronounced. If you want to make it appear longer and slimmer, create high volumes on the top of your head. To soften the corners, try natural waves and loose updos with stray sections on the sides.
Round shape: The same rules as for a square face shapes apply, but instead of waves, straight lines are called for.
Long shape: Use bangs to make the face appear less long and try low or lateral updos.
THE PERFECT HAIRSTYLE TO MATCH YOUR WEDDING DRESS
First of all – are you a Classic bride – Vintage bride- Boho bride
if you have bought your dress already then ensure that you me a photo of it, preferably of you wearing it, so I can use this as inspiration. If you know what hairstyle you are after, but have not bought the dress, then I may be able to advise you on what dresses will suit your hairstyle… it can work both ways, but the main aspect is that you ensure the dress and hairstyle complement each other.
Once youve found the perfect wedding dress..it's time to find the perfect wedding hairstyle. With a wide array of dress styles out there, finding a hairstyle that's elegant but won't steal the spotlight from your amazing dress can be tricky. Don't worry, im here to help. First, decide how formal or casual you want to look and then take your neckline into consideration. You want a hairstyle that complements your dress and balances out your overall aesthetic, not competes with its elaborate details or interferes with the lines of your gown. Whether you're rocking a trendy one-shoulder or a classic strapless with a sweetheart neckline, there's a 'do out there for you.
A number of hairstyles flatter a strapless wedding dress, but I love the idea of pairing a shoulder-baring updo with this dress style. Windswept chignons are all the rage right now in wedding hair, and this romantic style adds some sophisticated polish to a neckline that shows a lot of skin. And it can work with or without a veil.
ONE SHOULDER DRESS
A one-shoulder wedding dress draws attention to your shoulders, so you don't want a flowing hairstyle that will obscure this flattering dress, A side-swept updo will balance out an asymmetrical neckline and won't get in the way of shoulder details. For a more bohemian vibe, you try a side-swept fishtail braid.
There are plenty of options to choose from. You can wear retro asymmetric buns or knots and ask me to add curls or bangs to the opposite side.
V NECK WEDDING DRESS
A wedding dress with a V-neck draws the eye vertically and elongates your body. To complement these long, lean lines, you could maybe wear your hair down? Loose curls with a side part feel totally Old Hollywood. Maybe half up with an added braid. If you're going for a more casual look, consider beach waves. But pretty much any hairstyle will go with this sort of dress, updo is also a popular style among this dress.
A bateau neckline is seriously feminine and classic. To keep from overshadowing this timeless dress maybe opt for a simple low bun. Anything more elaborate runs the risk of feeling stuffy. If you want to give this traditional neckline a more modern twist, consider a high ponytail with some volume or a High classy curly do...the possibilities are endless but definitely a no for a down style
HIGH COLLAR DRESS
A topknot has an instantly regal feel that plays up the ultra-formal feel of a high neckline. And a high bun elongates your neck, making it easier to pull off more dramatic detailed collars that would otherwise compete with your hair. Add braids to your topknot for an of-the-moment look, or keep it elegant with a ballerina bun or maybe a high volumizing loose curly updo, and again a down do would make this dress rather stiffy.
Keep in mind- This is just some information to help you, id ensure any style will make you look HOT!! ;)
