Bride Hairstyle Ideas For Your Wedding Dress Style And Fabric

When deciding on your Bride hairstyle take into consideration the type of Wedding you're planning.

The style, color and fabric of your Wedding Dress also influences Bride hairstyle choices.

Choose Your Bride Styles To Compliment Your Wedding Dress Silhouette

Fitted Sheath, Column, and Mermaid gowns call for a sleek, elegant hairstyle.

Off the shoulder, halter, or strapless Wedding dresses will look stunning with all up or side swept hairstyles.

These styles really show off your neck, upper shoulders, and arms, so don't cover everything with long cascading curls.

The same for backless styles, wear your hair up or at least swept to one side.

Long, flowing dresses such as Trumpet, Princess, and Ball Gown styles are beautifully complimented by softer, more romantic hair.

Choose Your Hairstyle To Compliment Your Dress Fabric

Heavy Materials

Heavier fabrics such as Taffeta, Jersey, Elastic Woven Satin are best balanced with smooth hair or structured barrel curls.

Many older Brides choose the heavier fabrics over the sheer lightweights and smooth all up styles are perfect. You can wear the large smooth rolled curls, French Rolls, and Buns.

Winter Weddings

If your Wedding Day is in the Winter months you may be choosing a dress with fur or a stole to compliment a Winter themed Wedding.
