A lot of brides stress about finding the perfect hairstyle for their wedding. Then, once they think they have found it, they stress over finding the perfect stylist who can give them that perfect hairstyle. Here are some tips/ideas that I have created that may help with this dilemma.
First let me address the issue of finding the perfect hair stylist. Not all hair stylists are good with updos or special occasion styles. Just like any other profession, stylists learn all aspects of the trade but usually fall into one or two areas more naturally than the others. Some are better at color, some at cuts, and some at styling. Make sure you see examples of their work so you know they are indeed good with bridal styling. Don't assume your everyday stylist can pull off the look you want for your wedding.
Now on to finding the perfect hair style. Here are some tips that have been floating around for years:
The TRUTH is, you should try your hair a few different ways and see which ones works best for YOU. I have seen brides with long faces and high foreheads wear their hair back and up and look fabulous. It really all boils down to each one's personal style and preference.
Here at Elegant Hair Designs we always do a trial run with our brides to ensure that we find that perfect style for you. After all, it is all about YOU, not what your stylist, friends, or the media thinks.
One little tip that I DO think brides should take into consideration is to follow the flow of your dress. A-line strapless, drop waist, and mermaid dresses look best with a hairstyle that is left down. Halter, tank, turtle neck and empire waist dresses look best with a style that is up. If the dress has side roushing, consider a style off to one side. However, even these are just my opinions and tips. At the end of the day, my best advice to you is PICK WHAT YOU WANT AND BE HAPPY!
