One of the most important, and sometimes the hardest, decisions brides have to make is how they want to style their hair for their wedding. There are so many different ways to get inspiration, from magazines to Pinterest; it can definitely be overwhelming! My suggestion of how to narrow down your options would be to choose from one of the three: all up, half up, or all down. This will help tremendously, and then you can see what details you desire later on.

Having your hair styled all up is the most worry free option. Once it is all pinned and hair sprayed, and sprayed some more, you are good to go all night long! This is a really great style for outside weddings, especially in the warmer, more humid months of the year. Updo’s are very elegant in my opinion, and I love how intricate they can be.

Another way that is very common in bridal hair is a half up style. It lets the bride have the best of both worlds, and is a great choice for someone who is having a hard time deciding. You still have the comfort of letting some of your hair be down, but also feel confident that it will stay in place where it is pinned. I love to add braids and twists to my half up styles!

Last but definitely not least is all down! Brides are starting to leave their hair down more and more and I love it! The trick with this style is to set the hair as early as you can. Once the hair has been set in the desired curl pattern all day, it will remain for twice as long than if you just curl it. Another must is awesome hair spray. I prefer clean hair for most styles, but specifically for hair that is going to be kept down. My belief is that I would rather dirty up the hair with products, rather then have it weighed down with natural oils.

Hopefully I have helped all of you brides out there with deciding your wedding hairstyle! Whichever you choose for your big day, it will be beautiful!

Happy Wedding Season!!
