A wedding plays up every single aspect of the bride's appearance. Makeup is applied to professional standards, the gown fits every curve just perfectly, and the shoes peek out stylishly from underneath. In planning for your wedding, you no doubt also want your hair to look sexy and elegant as well. Here are some style ideas and tips to get you started on your path to ultimate bridal beauty.
The main thing to take into consideration when deciding on a wedding hairstyle is your own personal style. If you are a free spirit who is never seen with hair pulled back into a tight bun, then don't consider this hairstyle for your wedding day. The way you look on your wedding day will be immortalized forever in photographs, so be true to who you are and your own unique style.
That being said, the dress you choose will somewhat dictate how you wear your hair for the big day. Some dresses call for hair to be worn up, while others are perfectly accentuated by ringlets of hair falling down around the shoulders. The secret to sexy hair for any occasion is soft, touchable texture. With that as the ground rule, let's look at a few wedding hairstyles that could work for long, short and medium hair.
Long hair is great because can wear it bohemian chic or in an elegant up-do. For wedding hair that exudes the utmost of your romantic side, try this style. Pin hair up into a loose updo with soft, wispy tendrils or sensual, sweeping curls. Feminine to the extreme, this is a simple style that is easy to create and perfectly compliments a Cinderella ball gown or dress with ruffles, tulle and lace. Accentuate this poetic wedding hairstyle with jewels or fresh fragrant flowers that will draw your groom to you like nothing else.
Medium hair works in a wide array of wedding hairstyles easily. This length falls right around the shoulders, and looks beautiful with a loose braid or two woven through the front. Another very trendy look is to weave in a loosely braided headband. Ashley Simpson is just one celeb who has sported this super sexy look in recent months. Starting with a deep part to one side, grab a small section of hair and begin braiding loosely across the forehead. Medium length hair can keep going once you have reached the side of the head opposite from where your braid started, and end at the back of the head in a loose chignon for extra panache. Again, pull out some loose pieces of hair and insert a few fresh flowers or some bling.
Short hair has posed problems for some brides, because they have an image of being a long-haired bride. Because trends have gravitated towards short hair in recent years, there are plenty of short wedding styles you can choose from, without finding yourself in that position of simply having slicked back hair pinned tightly to your head.
Chin length short hair can be curled into soft ringlets that fall around the face, with a back that is full and high. This is easily accomplished with a bit of teasing and some hair spray. This length of hair, if straight, can be simply tucked behind the ear and held into place with a large flower for a look that is modern yet romantic.
No matter what the length of your hair, with a little playing and planning, you can have that sexy wedding hair you'll love to show off! Anita D. Jones
