With all eyes on you for your big day, it makes sense that you’d want to choose your wedding hairstyles carefully. After all, the ceremony and reception may go quick, but the photos last a lifetime.
The right style should match you and your personality. It should beautifully complement your wedding dress, and it needs to fit in seamlessly with the vibe you want to create for your day – be it relaxed, glamorous, modern or romantic.
It can be a balancing act, especially if you also want to nod to current trends. The key is to capture a moment in time, but also create a look that’s ageless and will stand the test of time in pictures for years to come. (Anyone who’s watched Four Weddings & A Funeral will know, crunchy curls and bouffant perms didn’t quite make it into the next decade.) That’s why, choosing your perfect wedding hairstyle deserves a little planning, no matter whether you’re the bride or a guest.
While your outfit may be the show-stopper (from your wedding dress, bridesmaid attire or wedding guest dress), its those finishing touches like your makeup and hair that can elevate everything and pull the look together. Case in point: loose waves vs an updo. Choosing one over the other can change the mood of your bridal look altogether. Plus on such a personal day, your hair is one more way you can introduce your own individual touch.

What advice would you give for choosing the style?
Start by celebrating your own personal style and the looks you gravitate toward regularly. The style you choose needs to represent you and the tone of the wedding. Whether you’re after something more sophisticated, rock chick or beachy, this will play into choosing a hairstyle that’s right for you. “To get the best out of your wedding hairstyle, don’t steer too far away from what you’re comfortable with on your day to day. I see far too many brides veer so far away from how they usually wear their hair that when they look back at their content from the day, the glam hair or makeup isn’t a true reflection of themselves,” he says.
