Wedding Hair Styles Ideas and Directions

Wedding days are very special but also very long. When thinking about what wedding hair styles will work best for you, consider what style will last for the long haul.
Several things to consider:
- Your veil, or tiara must work with the hairstyle you have picked out. Decide which one is more important to you and make the other work around it.
For example, if you have a simple veil that attaches with just a comb, you may want to pick an elaborate updo, and attach the veil below the updo (shown below). This will feature your beautiful hairstyle, and allow the veil to fit-in unobtrusively.
- What is the style of your wedding?
If it is a formal, black-tie affair, a formal, polished updo may be the most appropriate.
If it is an outdoor, afternoon wedding, a more tousled updo, or partial updo may be appropriate.
- Consider the climate. Is your wedding at a time of year when it may rain all day? If so, a style that stays in place despite the weather will be your best option.
Of all the wedding hair styles, we've found the barrel curl updo to be the most durable:

The hairstyle you pick is also determined by the type of dress you will wear. For example, if you love the way the back of your dress looks, wear your hair up.Of course, the most important consideration is, "What looks best on you?" Try out several of the options you like, pick one that looks best on you, and then try the hairdo out a few times before the big day.
Try your hairdo out in several types of weather and wear it all day. See how it holds up and what you need to do to ensure that your style stays in place.

If your hair is naturally curly, and you want a sleek, straight sedu-look, make sure that you use a high end straightening iron such as the GHD. This type of iron will literally "set" your hair's memory to be straight and will eliminate frizz.
After you have straightened your hair, try this simple but elegant
that works great with veils and hair accessories.
If your hair is naturally straight and you want curls to hold in your hair all day, of course, use hairspray. But better yet, try an updo so that you can pin the curls in position and prevent them from falling or wilting in any type of weather. Young girls in particular have this problem because of their fine hair. Try this
flower girl hair
style for an updo that lasts all day.
If you are having a beach wedding, consider the humidity. If your hair frizzes in humidity, try this wavy, romantic wedding hair style:
