If you’re considering a wedding updo, here’s some hairstyle issues that you need to mull over.
First, you must answer these questions answer these questions for your wedding updo.
o Do you want it high or low?
o Do you want it tight to your head?
o Do you want it flowy and romantic?
o Do you want tendrils by your face?
o Do you want bangs or not?
You can look through several bridal magazines to find all kinds of wedding updos.
You need your hairstyle to work with the dress you’ve chosen. For instance, high, tight updos look good with backless dresses and updos with romantic tendrils look stunning with ballroom gowns.
For the six months before the wedding, you shouldn’t color, perm, or chemically straighten your own hair. Let your stylist do all of the work so there is no damage to undo to your updo on your wedding day.
Along the same line of thought, if your hair is short and you think you might want an updo on your wedding day, start growing it out immediately.
Do not do a partial color of your hair in the six months before your wedding because the resulting updo will result in two toned hair.
If you’re torn between two styles, one solution is to have the more formal one at the wedding and have the more relaxed do at the reception. This way, you get photographs of both. Make sure that you’re going to be able to handle the hairstyle transition yourself though.
Ask your hairdresser about the possibility of clip on extensions and hidden hairpieces to make your do more glamorous.
Pick an updo that you’re at home with. You won’t “feel like yourself” if you pick something that is not natural. That said, you want your wedding day to be the most glamorous day of your life. You don’t want to overdo your updo.
Remember to schedule your hair appointment several hours before the ceremony so that you don’t have to rush. If you have an early wedding, you may have to ask that the hairdresser come in earlier than normal.
