Every bride wants to look dashing on the big day. A stylist who specializes in bridal styles can turn the bride’s dream into a reality or nightmare. Wedding hairstyles should be chosen based on the facial features, the type of gown, accessories, location of the ceremony and the length of the hair. If the occasion will be held outdoors like in a garden or at the beach, the bride might consider having most of the strands held in place with hair pins. This will prevent a disheveled head especially when the wind blows. If she will put on loop earrings, then she can keep her neck clear of hair strands to display the flashy jewels.
One of the common wedding hairstyles is the up do. This style is formal, elegant and sophisticated. Some brides prefer to add color or highlights to the strands. With part of the hair up and held with a clip or hair band, the rest of it on the hair line or at the nape can be curled loose. Accessories to go with the up do include a band that can act as the tiara or some pearl pins fixed on the sides of the up do, close to the face. Curled tendrils can frame one side of the face to add a classy modern look to the up do. A fringe is also possible with the up do wedding hairstyles.
Another classic style is the chignon. The hair is pulled back to the nape. If the bride does not have a lot of hair, a weave can be fixed and then combed back, twisted and held close to the back. Some loose curls can frame the face but if the bride wants a clear face, she can add some pin accessories to the chignon style to make it less flat. Long hair can also be curled and let down especially if the bride has a strapless gown. The curls will flow on the front and extend loosely to the back. If the gown is conventional, a Ballerina twist is ideal. The hair will be pushed back and twisted severally to form an up do. Accessories are then added to the twists to form a classy twist with inserts of pearl accessories.
For short hair, the bride can have a classy bob with highlights. She can use more accessories on the neck and ears because too much on the head may look misplaced. If the event will be held at the beach, braids are ideal and they can be styled accordingly. Different color braids can add glamour to a plain gown. They can be plaited or twisted. A bride should also consider the event after the ceremony because a very technical style may be hard for her to handle during the honeymoon.
