Feminine plaits. Romantic braids can be gorgeous on any bride. Opting for a natural woven crown coil or a cascading fishtail, braids can be demure with a multitude of variations. Use a detangling spray ahead of time to help you weave your style worry free. Think outside of the box and try a side-sweeping multi braid or a single sideline weave.

Sweeping beauty. If ultra-sophisticated is what you have in mind, think of having zero fringe and sweeping your locks off of your face. Add some glossiness to your hair by using a shine mist or shine enhancer to smooth out potential flyaways. Secure with bobby pins, a fanciful clip or product alone.

Chic Chignon. High society and exceptional style can be obtained by securing a tight updo. This is ideal if you are hoping to secure a sensational veil. Use some hairspray around the hairline and over the bun to ensure that all those baby hairs cooperate.

Beachside Waves. Tight curls are not as big as they were in the ’80s. Many brides today are seeking an ethereal, dreamy presence. Having less than perfect waves creates a romantic do that will make you feel like you are having the happiest day of your life while enjoying a waterside vacation.

Romantic Petals. Incorporating some floral accents into your hair has been popular since the first brides lived in the forest. Enjoy one larger flower or create a multitude of cascading blossoms. Secure with clips and bobby pins to provide security as you dance the night away.

DIY Messy Up-Do. It is truly amazing what a few bobby pins, some hairspray and a curling iron can create. However, be sure to keep track of your strategy with notes and photographs to ensure smooth sailing on your wedding day.

Half Up Half Down. Enjoying the best of both worlds can help you feel radiant. If you want to showcase your length but keep the majority of hair out of your face, this is a great option. Experiment with twists, braids, and a variety of styles to see what naturally feels pretty.

Hair Consultations. Once you have decided on the styles you are most interested in, book your hair consultations. Feel free to bring some pics on your phone or from magazines to help the stylist understand your vision. Take pictures of all angles. Be sure to bring your veil and any hair accessories you are incorporating to ensure that there are no surprises on your wedding day.

Make a day of it with your girls and book consultations in the same timeframe for the most fun. This will give you a better idea of how the salon will facilitate your entourage on your wedding day and enable you to estimate times. This is also the time to make adjustments or change your mind about particular details. Having your crew in tow will allow for honest feedback and ultimate satisfaction.
