"What is the best hairstyle for my wedding: Up or Down? Expert Advice and Tips"
A common question I receive from my clients is ‘’should I wear my wedding hair up or down?’
It’s an important decision because your wedding hairstyle can have a significant impact on your overall bridal look. So, let’s dive into the pros and cons of both bridal hair options ( and I’ve even thrown in some wedding hair tips to help you make the best choice for your big day!)
Wearing your hair up has many advantages. First of all, it’s a classic and timeless look that never goes out of style. It’s also a practical option if you’re getting married in a hot or humid climate or if you plan on dancing the night away. Additionally, an updo allows you to showcase any beautiful accessories you may have, such as a veil, headpiece, or earrings. Hair up styles will look the same at the end of the evening as they did at the start of the morning as the hair is secured into place and will remain that way until removed.
On the other hand, wearing your hair down can be equally stunning. It can create a soft and romantic look that is perfect for a bohemian or beachy wedding. Down hairstyles also allow you to show off your beautiful looks, and you won’t have to worry about removing any hair accessories throughout the night. However, if you have long hair, wearing it down can be heavy and difficult to manage throughout the day. Gravity WILL happen and if youre worried that your style might change shape or your hair might drop with all that movement and touching the you might want to think hard about whather you’ll be ok with that.
So, how do you decide which option is best for you? Well, it’s important to consider your personal style, the theme of your wedding, and your dress’s neckline. If you’re wearing a strapless or off-the-shoulder dress, an updo can create a beautiful neckline and highlight your shoulders. Also, if you’re wearing a dress with intricate details on the back, an up hairstyle can showcase those all important details.
Another factor to consider is the time of day you’re getting married. If you’re having an evening wedding, an updo can create a more formal and elegant look. If you’re having a daytime wedding, a down hairstyle can create a more natural and relaxed look that is perfect for the daytime.
