Bridal Hairstyles and Natural Up-Dos

Every bride knows that behind a beautiful wedding dress there is always a dazzling and fantastic hairstyle to go with it. No matter what kind of wedding you have, there is always a style that matches the most special day of your life. Get inspired by these gorgeous styles that accommodate each and every type of bride and will leave you looking marvellous on your big day.

Loose Curls

A floral tiara makes an otherwise casual look, seem festive. To achieve this look, comb a moisturising mousse through damp hair, then blow it dry with a diffuser and finish by curling the hair using a small curling iron.

Relaxed Bun

A relaxed hair-do creates a style that is sophisticated yet absolutely charming. Pinning and twisting long hair loosely around creates a messy and effortless upswept hair style that looks less structured and more romantic.

Pulled Back

This simple half up, style is perfect for the brides getting married outdoors that can be easily accessorised with a comb, headband or fresh flowers. Lightly add volume to the hair at the crown before pulling it back to create an extra height on the top of the head to help balance out the fullness of the curls.

Side Bun

The side bum is a flattering style that suites most brides A beautiful and delicate hair accessory makes this off-centre chignon party-ready. To create a fuller bun add extra volume to the hair at the base of a low ponytail before twisting it into a knot.

High Bun

An elegant and classic up- do that looks great with a tiara or headband. Start this look with a french twist instead of a ponytail. It’s easier to form the bun when the hair is already twisting from its base. If you begin with a ponytail, the hair tends to hang straight down rather than twist up.

Long Waves

For a hair-do that is polished yet natural, try these loose waves . Use a thickening spray on damp hair before blow-drying and wrapping individual sections around a curling iron. The spray is a great addition to the hairstyle because it helps keep the finished curls from wilting before the evening is over.

Low Chignon

A sleek, low chignon accessorised with a single comb on the side of the head gives this otherwise demure style an air of drama. Work a silicone serum through damp hair before blow-drying to boost shine and control flyaway hairs.

French Twist

A voluminous french twist with a Swarovski hair comb creates a hairstyle that has an au-courant feel while maintaining a classic and elegant look. Back-comb your hair before attempting this look because then you will be able to achieve the required volume.

Choosing Your Wedding Gown

Whether you have a clear idea of your ideal wedding gown or are not sure about the style you want to chose, it is vital that you get the professional advise you need in plenty of time to make sure that you look your best on your big day. It is very important to consider the time of the year you are planning on getting married. Bridal dresses in lighter materials such as tulle, chiffon and other soft and floaty fabrics create a light and delicate style which are ideal for a summer wedding whereas Satin, Lace or heavier fabrics are the perfect choice for winter weddings. If you are concerned about being cold in the evening consider wearing a matching warp or bolero to complement your dress.Wedding gowns can de made in different shades of white, cream, champagne and Ivory so before deciding on the colour consider your venue or the theme of the wedding. A traditional church ceremony is the perfect setting for a more classic and traditional gown but if you are getting married on the beach or having a open air civil ceremony you can opt for a more extravagant and less formal.

You should remember that whatever style of the dress you go for, should feel comfortable and reflect you as an individual, giving you a look that not only accentuate all the best bits of you, but one in which you will feel a million dollar.

How to Wear A Hat?

The mother of the bride and groom would normally wear distinctive hats. If you like to mark out their statues in this way, why not suggest a feathered disc or butterfly comb.

As a Bride, consider a sweeping picture hat or chic cocktail hat instead of a veil. Simple flower or feather pieces could enhance a simple dress or soften a traditional look.

With a wide brim, make sure the hat fits precisely and won’t slip down onto your eyebrows. If you have a low forehead, you may not be able to see out from under your hat.

Even with a simple decorated comb, practise with your hairdresser so he knows exactly how many pins will be needed to hold it on your wedding day.
