The age-old debate of whether a bride should let her hair up or down continues. The choice ultimately comes down to personal preferences and what looks best on the bride but there are a few major considerations brides need to look at before choosing to let their hair down on their wedding day.
A stylish up-do is safe. It’s manageable and long lasting. Plus you can spice it up with some glittery accessories. There are a lot of different looks you can go with on an up-do and it’s guaranteed to hold on longer than hair that is open.
Hair that is styled up isn’t all rainbows and sunshine though. There are a few downsides to having your hair styled up. In the event that your wedding is planned for the winter season, up-dos can seriously take a toll in the dry weather and get static-y. If you’re wearing a veil, the static electricity can ruin your hairstyle even more once you remove it.
Buns and up-dos are also a lot harder to make on hair that is fine and thin. Where thick, voluminous hair can carry a bun gracefully, silky fine hair can be challenging to manage in an up-do.
Your wedding dress is also an important consideration when choosing how to style your hair. If you have a backless dress and want to show off your back, then an up-do will obviously be a perfect fit for you. Similarly, wedding gowns and dresses that show off shoulder should be paired with a hairstyle that exposes the shoulders.
Finally, there’s always the option of having your hair in a half up-do. Sure, this look might not be for every bride and it can be hard to master it with perfection but you can get the best out of both hair up and down options with this look.
Your best option is to hire a professional hair stylist for your wedding and choose what will look best on you after consulting with the bridal hair and makeup expert. Have multiple trial sessions before your actual wedding day if you can to be on the safe side.
