For Happy (Hair) Days: Bridal Hairstyles
There's no question about it: the most beautiful day in your life is all about the whole thing. And not only when it comes to the outfit, but also the styling. And the ideal bridal hairstyle plays an important role in this, because what the crown of the princess is, the hairstyle of the bride is! And one thing is also true - the look stands or falls with the right bridal hairstyle. But whatever the prerequisites for the personal, ideal wedding hairstyle may be: once the big day has come, a woman will be happy with her hairstyling. Provided you pay attention to a few things beforehand....
What you should look out for in bridal hairstyles
When it comes to wedding hairstyles, you are spoilt for choice. There is an almost infinite variety - from the casual undone look to the flowing curls to the sophisticated updo. The latter have a decisive advantage over their openly worn rivals: they usually last all day, whereas curls easily lose their shape between the registry office, church and subsequent festivities. A beautiful bridal hairstyle should therefore be one thing above all: durable! Because it has to survive hundreds of hugs, unpredictable weather conditions and also wild dancing at the wedding reception! Here, looks that are artfully arranged and use a lot of hairpins and hairspray for guaranteed hold in continuous use have a clear plus.
Which bridal hairstyle to wear with which dress?
Whether it's an off-the-shoulder dress with romantic ruffles, a delicate fairy dress or a strict and simple dress with few frills: The outfit determines the hairstyle and should be coordinated with it. Dresses that are somewhat reminiscent of a fairytale wedding look great with an artfully pinned-up bridal hairstyle - they give the elaborate dress enough space so that it is perfectly staged. If you opt for an airy dream in lace, curls are a good idea because they emphasise the girlish silhouette. Strictly simple dresses without a lot of ornamentation go well with strict chignon, perhaps with individual strands falling out loosely or a beautiful hair ornament. And if you want to have a traditional wedding and perhaps even get married in a fitting setting, a braided ha irstyle is a pretty good wedding hairstyle: it will last for many long hours without taking much damage.
Preparation for the perfect bridal hairstyle
An absolute must for the perfect bridal hairstyle is a trial appointment with your trusted hairdresser. He or she will give you expert advice on which wedding hairstyle is right for your hair and what you should stay away from. Because every hair structure has its own characteristics, not every hairstyle is equally suitable for every hair. You should make this appointment in the morning. That way you will know in the evening whether your bridal hairstyle has the potential to last a whole day. And even if you don't want to know anything about toupee, curlers and many styling aids - trust the specialist! Straight (link to the new text on straight hair) and shiny hair, for example, as beautiful as it may be, is difficult to permanently change into a different shape. Fine hair, on the other hand, is very willing to be styled, but it often lacks volume for a great bridal hairstyle. For both types of hair, however, the rule is: please don't wash it on the day of, but rather one day before! This way, any elaborate wedding hairstyle is guaranteed to hold better.
