If you have long hair and you are in the process of figuring out what to do with your hair for the wedding day, reading this might just save you.
Usually, Rapunzel-like brides are scared of getting too much hair covering the front of her face under the veil. Being too uncontrollable is also one problem, so some resort into getting it trimmed or shortened for the occasion. But that shouldn’t be the case. Here are a few sure-fire ways of wearing your long hair on the day of the wedding without the need of shedding a few inches.
Lay it down straight. Got gorgeous, pin-straight and perfectly glossy hair? Flaunt it out and don’t even let the veil out shine it. Get a headband type tiara to help keep the strands from straying into your face as you say “I do”. Make sure that your hair won’t be strangling you as the wind blows or be hooked up in the beading details of the gown. Check if the length of the hair won’t be intruding the gown’s cut or style.
One-sided affair. Sweep all of your locks to one side, depending on which side you feel you are most comfortable with. Only the brides with long locks can pull off this look. Additional accessories like a small tiara comb or flowers can be added to the hair style to give it a little edge and flair. The hair can be teased for more volume or curled at the bottom for a more dreamy look.
Dramatic curls. Either by a curling iron or a perm treatment, curls bring out nothing but romance and body to your wedding look. If you are going for the curls to be limited to the lower half of your hair, the headband tiara still works great as an accent. A touch up might be needed if the curls are getting out of hand before the dinner has even started.
Half up, half down. Half dos are ideal if you still want to have your hair down to brighten up your face but don’t want your smile to be covered up. Skillful hairstylists can even create a rose, mini-bun or a definitive style with your hair at the back. As for accessories, an elegant yet simple tiara would do the trick – not too much but just enough to sparkle.
The classic bun. Inevitably, a big bun on top of the bride’s hair crowned with a sophisticated wedding tiara is all that it takes. Yes, long hair may be a waste if only kept hidden but then imagine the possibilities all because the stylists gets a lot of material to work with. With the possibility of braids, swirls, loops, teasing and weaving the look of the bun won’t be just like any other out there. Paired with a tiara wrapped around the bun, this classic bride look has been the one you’ve been dreaming of since age 6.
