I’m seeing more and more beautiful brides and beautiful dresses with the most amazing ‘back’ designs.

Everything from a low sequined swoop to a lengthy lace panel. Its such a ‘wow’ statement to make so its totally understandable that you most certainly don’t want to hide it behind a ‘down’ do. But don’t panic, it doesn’t mean you have to have it scraped onto the top of your head!

There are lots of ways to style your hair loosely, with that romantic ‘undone’ look without having to have it all up. You can see some inspiration here.  It’s a common issue for brides to not want their neck too exposed, or their hair too tightly pinned back over their ears and the current popular romantic, more undone styles lend themselves perfectly to these problems!

I always remind my brides that they need to look and feel amazing in 360 degrees! What I mean by that is that there will be an obscene amount of pictures of the back of your head ( think walking down the aisle!) and even more from the side ( if you’re standing side on from your friends and family saying your vows) so your chosen style needs to look amazing from all angles! 

Another issue that I often hear is brides who are concerned about the back of their beautiful dress being ruined by a spot or pimple on their back on the wedding day. If this happens to you then please don’t panic! Just like we can easily cover any outbreaks you might have on your face, we can do exactly the same with any other exposed part of your body too. This might be pimples on your upper arms, a blotchy neck, a spot on your back – to name just a few! Airbrush make up is renowned for the amazing coverage it gives – even to tattoos and scars so that’s one less thing for you to panic about! 

Your dress can play a massive part in your decision as to how you would like to wear your hair, but if you’re stuck and need some advice then feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to help you come up with a few ideas! 


I look forward to speaking with you!
