When it comes to wedding hairstyles there's no wrong and right, simply a difference in preference. The best thing to do when contemplating how to wear your hair on the big day is to relax. Don't become overloaded with ideas from different
bridal magazines or what your friends and family think will suit you; remember it's your big day and your choice.
One of the biggest mistakes that brides make is to completely lose their personal style identity when making a decision about how they are going to look on their wedding day. Of course you want to look better than you ever had, but this doesn't mean looking nothing like your usual self! The best thing you can do to ensure that you feel comfortable and look great on your big day is to stay true to your personal style and not try and be something that you are not. If you are the sort of girl who prefers simple elegance when it comes to fashion then don't get a fussy, spangly dress and decorate your hair with all sorts of sparkly bits and curls. If you go for simplicity over glamour in your everyday life, then the same should be said of your wedding dress and your hair and makeup. If you like your style and how you look on your big day then you can't help but to look good!
The other important thing to remember is there is no right and wrong answers when it comes to selecting the right gown or hairstyle for yourself; it is all a matter of what makes you feel good. The key to a good wedding is in the planning and the same can be said of the bridal hair styles. You need to discuss your wedding hair styles with your stylist as soon as possible in order to practice and get the right style.
If you have short hair then do not feel like you necessarily need to grow your hair for your wedding. Just because nearly every bridal magazine you see features brides with long, flowing tresses does not mean that you have to aspire to look like this. Of course having shorter hair does limit the amount of styles that you can try out, but this does not mean that short hair does not make for a good bridal hair style. Just think of Halle Berry with her ultra-feminine short curls!
When it comes to wedding hair styles, short hair is definitely easier to style but there are less fancy styles that are available to you. However, in many cases the key lies in the accessories to help liven up the style. With short bridal hair styles it is best to keep the style cute, chic and simple and let the hair accessories speak for themselves.
There is definitely something about short styles that scream elegance so they are perfect for the chic, sophisticated bride. Lots of celebrities have debuted their newly short locks on the red carpet and often experiment with the slicked back or the wet look style. This is an easy option and there are loads of products out there that will do the job.
Lastly, make sure you think about the line, density and texture of your gown when choosing your wedding hair style. You want everything to effortlessly go together so make sure the line of the dress matches the line of the hair. Lydia Cooper
