1. A CHIC PONYTAIL
You do not have to go for an elaborate hairstyle to look beautiful on your wedding day. If you want to keep your wedding hair simple, you should ask your hairstylist to give you a sleek, chic ponytail. Whether you want it high and straight or low with some loose, romantic curls, the right kind of ponytail can complement any wedding dress.
2. A ROMANTIC CHIGNON
If you want to add more romance to your wedding hair, you should consider asking your hairstylist for a soft and alluring chignon. With a few perfectly placed curls, this stylish bun helps you look and feel your best on your big day.
3. LONG, LOOSE WAVES
Long, loose waves are a beautiful way to enhance your dress. You do not have to have an up-do to create a stunning bridal aesthetic. If you prefer to wear your hair down, you should ask your stylist to create some long, loose waves that will add a whimsical feeling to your overall wedding look.
4. A BALLERINA BUN
Ask your hairstylist to gather your hair together into a stylish ballerina bun at the top of your head for a classic and timeless look. A ballerina bun is the perfect complement to a veil or a headpiece for your wedding. You can even top it off with a flower or a unique braid to put more of your personality into your look.
LHT ARTIST PRO TIPS
To ensure success the morning of the wedding here are a few LHT Artist Pro Tips to consider when planning your look for this important milestone:
Hair Texture: Be realistic with the capabilities of your hair texture. During your complimentary consultation be sure to discuss how your Hair Stylist would like your hair prepared before you arrive. A rule of thumb is, women with medium/thick texture should arrive with hair that is slightly dirty (washed the day before is perfect). For fine textured hair your stylist should blow out your hair for maximum movement.
Where are you standing?: The ‘money shots’ of all weddings are candid, and nothing is more important then your vows. Communicate which side of your head will be facing towards the audience so your stylists can make that the focal point of the style, this is especially important when an asymmetrical style is chosen.
The veil: Finally the piece de resistance that completes your bridal look. We recommend choosing a veil with a metallic comb attached for ease of removal. Having your Maid of Honour watch the application of the veil will ensure that they know how to remove it when you are about to get your groove on the dance floor.
Whatever hair style you choose, we at Loyal Hair Therapy believe that the most important thing is to be you! If others’ opinions get too loud, always bring it back to what your gut is telling you. Your hairstyle has the power to define your entire bridal look, so you want it to complement your personality, not someone else’s. Know who you are, own it!
