One of the big questions brides face, is how to wear their hair on the wedding day. Today's article focuses on this very question and provides tips on whether an updo hairstyle would be suitable for your wedding theme, style and face shape.
The classic hairstyle for a bride is the updo. There are many ways to do an updo.
The Classic Wedding Updo Hairstyle
This is a simple hairstyle to do. You can even choose to create it yourself (with a little practice beforehand!) instead of having a hairstylist do it for you. First, you have to create a mass of curls with a curling iron. Then, sweep the hair up and secure it on top of the head in a high ponytail. Now, let the curls spill out around the elastic. Be sure to pin up any strays, and spray it into place. This hairstyle is not suitable for those of you with very long, thick and heavy hair. If you have thick hair, the high ponytail will not stay in place, unless you band it very tightly, and this will create a tension that could give you a massive headache. Not something you'd want on your wedding day.
The Wedding French Twist Updo Hairstyle
Remember Audrey Hepburn's chic look? Well, that's the French twist. This is a great hairstyle for those with medium to long hair, and works even if you have thick and heavy hair. You just have to secure it will spray. However, this hairstyle works well if you have healthy hair - which means no break-away short and brittle hair. You want a sleek and clean look. So be sure to take care of your hair well before your wedding day. Start with deep-conditioning treatments as part of your hair care routine months before the actual big day. The Romantic Wedding Updo Hairstyle
The romantic wedding updo hairstyle is a more unstructured, soft and flowing hairstyle. It would be suitable for an outdoor themed wedding, like a beach resort, garden or pool wedding. To create this hairstyle, you should first ppply a product that will hold hair in place and give it some shine, then scrunch the hair to form soft waves and curls. Next, gather it in the back, form it in a downward French roll and secure it with a large barrette (floral designs would look good) at the nape of the neck.
The Crown of Twists Wedding Updo Hairstyle
This is a great elegant wedding hairstyle. But it requires a skilled hairstylist to create it as it is a more intricate style. First, you have to divide the hair into small sections. Each section is then twisted. This is done so as to create a crown with the twisted locks. Then each small crown is pinned up on top of your head. The Half Up and Half Down Bridal Hairstyle
This is a great hairstyle that combines an updo hairstyle with a let down your hair style too. Simply pin up the front half of the head in a simple sweep or more elaborate loops, and let the rest hang down the back. This is a romantic look too - notice the little gemstones in between the curls of the hair.The Simple Ponytail
This basic style be a very sophisticated look, if done right. However, you should have a healthy head of hair to pull this off. If your hair is thin and limp, it will not look good to do the ponytail. To achieve this look, pull back your hair into a low-slung ponytail. Secure the ponytail with a large jewelled pin, or even fresh flowers.The Soft Modern Wedding Updo Hairstyle
If your face is too long, then a classic updo with all of your hair pulled away from your face, might make your face look even longer. To soften the classic updo look, pull down pieces from the front of the hair to create tiny face-framing tendrils.
