How To Choose Your Wedding Hair Style

Aug 24, 2008
Choosing your wedding hairstyle can be a difficult task. If you're having trouble finding the right one for you, you're not alone - lots of women have this problem.

That's because the right wedding hairstyle does more than just look good. It also needs to be a style that you're comfortable in all day, no matter where you're getting married. It shouldn't cost too much, either. Here are some hints to assist you in getting the right style.

Remember to start early! Find hairstyle photos you like well in advance of the wedding, and begin collecting them. This will give you a starting point that tells you what sort of hairstyle you prefer.

Of course, it's important to be realistic - you shouldn't make a big change just before the big day. If you want to get a drastic cut or color change, have it done early. Otherwise, look for wedding hairstyles that fit your hair color, length, and type.

One important part of picking out the right style is knowing your face shape. Some faces work well with certain styles and don't do as well with others. The best way to determine your face shape is analyzing it in a mirror.

If just looking doesn't help, measure your cheekbones, jaw line, and forehead widths, as well as the length of your face. If you're having trouble taking measurements, trace your face on a mirror.

Women with a forehead and jaw that are the same width, but narrower than their cheekbones have an ideal egg shape. They can wear almost any wedding hairstyle they choose, but should avoid styles that will distort their face shape.

Round faces, ones with little difference between length and cheekbone measurements, are a little tougher. The right style will make your face look longer. Long styles below chin length or short styles cut above the chin will help, but short curly styles or tightly pulled back ones should be avoided.

A heart shaped face has a narrow jaw and wide forehead. To counteract this, think about a chin length bob balanced with curls. Avoid styles that are slicked back or have a lot of fullness around the forehead.

Faces that are all the same width and have a similar length measurement are square. Think about a wedding hairstyle that's soft and layered, or wear longer hair that comes past your shoulders. Side swept fringes are flattering, but geometric cuts aren't.

Think about your comfort level when you pick a wedding hair style, too. You should wear a style that's appropriate for the environment, whether your wedding is inside or outside. If you're uncomfortable with tight updos or your hair trailing on your shoulders, take this into account.

You'll be wearing your wedding hairstyle for hours, so it's important to be comfortable in it. If you can, spend some time before the wedding getting used to the style, so you'll look and feel your best.
