I’m getting married this summer and im still very undecided
whether to wear my hair up or down on the day. Im wearing a veil and my
hair is shoulder length, what do you suggest?
Congratulations on your engagement, I bet by now you are
extremely excited! Firstly I would advise any bride to have a trial done
first, (especially all you bridezilla’s out there), nothing worse than
‘tantrums and tiara’s on the morning of your big day. Wedding hair
should be kept very classy and elegant, it should enhance what you are
wearing, not take from it. If you don’t normally wear your hair up, you
might find it to be a bit too severe, especially if you are not used to
it. You need to feel confident wearing it off your face, so half up with
some soft wave and movement around the front is always a safe option. A
very popular look at the moment is the natural glossy look with a veil,
which was worn by Kate Middleton last year.
The most important thing is that you feel comfortable on
the day, loads of clips, extensions, etc are a no-no if you are not
familiar with how they feel, the last thing you need is a headache all
day. Speak to your stylist about the shape of your dress, this is always
a good indication of whether your hair should be worn on/off the neck,
whether you are accessorising with earrings or a necklace etc is also
Your hair colour should be kept as you would normally
wear it, d’ont attempt going from blonde to dark etc, stick to how you
usually look. Remember you will have to look at these pictures forever!!!
Keep your make-up soft and natural to compliment you under the
photographer’s lights, unless you’re going for the Jordan (Katie Price)
image? Hopefully not!
A regular scenario is short haired brides growing there
hair for their special day, then chopping it of immediately afterwards,
short hair can look great on any bride, if you always have short hair,
speak to the dressmaker about a neckline and head dress to suit.
As we are about to head into another busy wedding season,
I wonder will it be busier than usual due to it being a leap year? Have
many of you ladies braved getting down on one knee? Let me take this
opportunity to wish you and your fiancée a fantastic wedding and all
the best for the future.
