What a Winter Wedding Means for Your Hairstyle

So you have chosen to have white winter wedding – congratulations! Now the question is what to do for your wedding hairstyle during the winter. One factor to consider is where most of the wedding, and wedding photos are taking place.

 

If most of your wedding and wedding photos will be taking place inside, wearing your hair down is a great option. Winter weather typically has very dry conditions, so be sure to use a product that will keep your wedding locks moisturized, soft, and shiny. Not sure weather to go up or down? Do both! Having half of your hair pulled up, allowing soft ringlets to escape down the back with create an elegant and soft look, while also showing off your face.

 

If your will have to stand up to any of the elements, an up-do may be the way to go. Up-dos are always a great choice, especially if your wedding is on the formal side. Consider a tight bun with a slight part in the front – it is classic and chic. Let a few curls escape to create a very romantic look.

 

The important thing to remember is that your final hairstyle should be able to hold through picture taking, any elements, dancing, and all the hugs you are bound to get! Winter weddings tend to be white, bright, and sparkly. Adding a jeweled barrette, a pearl hair clip, or small white flowers can help to create that perfect winter bride look.

The Best Bangs for Your Face Shape

Thinking about changing your look this season? Adding bangs can be a great way to go! Before taking the plunge, finding out what bangs will suit your face shape best is a good idea.

If your face is on the rounder side, consider a gentle arching fringe. If your face is round, it is likely you have softer features.  You want to be sure to avoid making your round face seem fuller. Asking for a more curved shape will actually flatter and bring out your cheekbones.

Side bangs are perfect for a heart shaped face. The side swept bang tends to bring attention downwards to the eyes. If your face is heart shaped, the bangs should be layered and feathered. The shortest pieces should fall just barely on the arch of your eyebrows, and the longer outside piece should hit the corner of your eye.

If you have a square face, consider long eye-grazing bangs. Ask for them to be tapered on the sides, this will add a softer element to a square face shape. The key to these kinds of bangs is that they must hit in exactly the right spot. A good tip to master this is to ask your hairdresser to cut them just slightly below the brows with the heavier stronger pieces on the side (you don’t want them in the way of your eyes!
