It’s the biggest day of your (and your hair’s!) life, and you want to be in the hands of a professional. You have two options to go about getting the ‘do of your dreams:
- Using the expertise of a professional hairstylist who specialises in weddings
When choosing the perfect hairstyle for your special day, it is very important to take into account several factors. Firstly, all experts agree that it is important to show your hairstylist pictures of what you like, but also what you don’t like; this serves as an important guideline to set your stylist in the direction of what you want.
Firstly, it is important to coordinate your hairstyle with your wedding dress. As explained by stylist Sabine Costanzo, “The wedding dress is very important when you choose your hairdo. For example, if your outfit has a low neck, opt for loose hair, and if your dress has a high neck, then having an updo will look very elegant.”
“With regards to your face shape, it’s all a game of balancing your silhouette,” Sabine explains. “For example, if your face is oval and long, you should fix a low hairstyle in order to balance out the shape. Conversely, if you have a round face, prioritise a higher updo in order to elongate your profile.”
It may sound odd, but it’s necessary to reflect on your hair colour when deciding on your hairstyle. For example, if you have multiple tones in your hair, it is advisable to consider an updo.
“This is because the style will stand out more, thanks to the varied shades. Blonde hair tends to have more contrast, for example,” reveals Sabine. If you have dark hair, consider letting your hair loose and adding beautiful curls, or fixing an elegant chignon. “Also remember to freshen up your colour up two weeks before your big day,” Sabine adds.
You can’t get much more effortless than boho hairstyles. Wearing your hair loose creates this natural and romantic look that is inherently feminine and elegant. From side swift braids, to half-up-half-down, there are lots of variations of this style that you can choose from. It also goes perfectly with hair accessories, such as a flower crown, if you want to jazz it up.
Wedding trends constantly come and go, but the classic chignon is timeless, sophisticated and always a winner! The best thing about this fairytale hairstyle lies in its versatility – there are so many versions, you are sure to find one that suits your taste.
Whether you were looking for high-volume waves or soft twists embellished with flowers, there are many ways to make your wedding hairstyle romantic and elegant simply by letting your beautiful tresses hang free.
