7 common mistakes when planning your wedding day hair style

Wedding Hair Styles - 7 Common Mistakes most Brides make

By Perriann Rodriguez

Planning your wedding hair style is crucial to achieve a beautiful wedding day look. There is a little work involved and you should never leave this important facet of your wedding to the last minute, or to amateurs. Below are 7 common mistakes that many brides make with their wedding day hair styles.

1. You don't schedule a trial run with a professional stylist, or even try to do you hair on your own advance. Even if you are doing your own hair, you will need to do a trial run to make sure you can do your hair exactly the way that you want.

2. You show up to your stylist on the day of your wedding wearing a T-shirt and sweatpants. Nothing wrong with the sweatpants, but the T-shirt represents disaster waiting to happen. When you pull the T-shirt over your head to take it off, your bridal hair style will get all messed up. Be sure to wear a button-down shirt when you get your hair done on your wedding day.

3. You remove your veil for the reception and make a mess of your hair style. Let your hair stylist take care of removing your veil. If he or she will not be at your wedding, have her/him instruct a member of the bridal party how to remove the veil without destroying your hair.

4. You use conditioner in your hair on the day of your wedding. This is a big NO-NO according to many professional stylists. Conditioner in your hair can make it too flyaway to work with, in turn causing your style to fall out.

5. You let your hair grow out 6-months to 1-year before your wedding and you plan to wear it in an updo. Most updos require hair that is 3-4 inches past the shoulders. When your hair is too long, it will be difficult to work with and the style may not hold as well.

6. You decide 1 week before your wedding to get a perm, change your hair color, add highlights or anything else that is dramatic. These decisions so close to your wedding day are usually based on stress. Don't make drastic changes right before your wedding. You may be very sorry!

7. You are annoyed by hair pins and hairspray. If you do not let your hair stylist use enough hair pins and hairspray to create your wedding updo, the style may fall out half way thru the ceremony. Let the stylist do his or her work and use all the pins and hairspray needed.
In short, wedding hair styles require pre-planning. You will be looking at photos for many years of your wedding day, so make the hair style work so you can enjoy your big day.

Planning your wedding hair style

Your wedding is a special day and involves a lot of planning. The hair style that you select can make or break your wedding day look. Careful planning and trial runs can help ensure that you have a great day. Article below features some great planning advice that you can follow when selecting your hair style.

Wedding Hairstyles

By Lorna Mclaren

How you wear your hair at your wedding is important. Above all else you Wedding Hairstyle has to be comfortable. It should compliment not only your face but your dress as well.

It does no harm to have your regular hairdresser practice on you a few times. By doing this you may decide that the particular Wedding Hairstyle you have dreamed about having since you were a small child actually does nothing for the shape of your face!

If you want a wedding updo and you have relatively short hair then although with many grips and much hairspray it is possible, do remember that your hairdresser can do the impossible but miracles are outwith their reach!

Try to get a rough idea of what sort of style you are looking at for your wedding hairstyle as far in advance as possible. This gives your hair a chance to grow to a length that is more manageable for your hairdresser. After all long hair can easily be cut but it is harder and more expensive to add to your hair.

Always remember it is you that is getting married and not some fairytale image of you that you have held in your imagination since you were six! You dont want to walk down the aisle to your beloved and have him not recognize you because you wedding hairstyle is so different!

Try not to go for something very different. Chances are you will get fed up with it. If an updo requires a lot of help to stay up then as a wedding hairstyle it probably isn't right. Your wedding hairstyle has to stay in place for up to 10 hours, a lot to ask of any hairstyle but particularly difficult when a veil is shoved in, you are being swung around the dance floor and everyone wants to hug you!!

I would suggest go for elegance and comfort. Something that suits you and brings out your best features. If you can mange a wedding hairstyle that looks just as good down as up then you grab it with both hands, a comb and some grips!!

More Long Wedding Hair Styles

Long Wedding Hair Styles

The IN style this season is simply wearing your hair long. There are many options to long hair. You can flat iron in, so that it is stick straight, and then add decorative flowers, barrettes and headpieces for accents.

You can also curl your hair, go really messy and perhaps pull some of it up in a partial updo. See photos for examples and get some great ideas for your wedding hair.

The partial updo is a great option if you want to have a more formal touch. To create extra height for the partial updo, take sections of hair in the crown area and back-comb them. Then smooth the hair on top with your fingers as you pull a portion of the hair back into a low to mid-height pony tail. Add decorative flowers and perhaps jeweled barrettes to finish the style.

That's all for today! Stay tuned for frequent examples and suggestions for your wedding hair style. For a look at the Top Wedding Hair Styles, as selected in the Nationwide Bridal Hair Styles Contest, see:
