Bridal hair and makeup tips

The wedding season is fast approaching. Make sure that the hair and makeup of you and your bridal party are not one of the things worrying you in the lead up to your big day. Have you chosen your hairstyle yet? If not, make sure you consider all of the following points when choosing the right style for you.


If you have chosen a theme for your wedding, it is important to reflect that theme in your hair style and makeup, and not just the décor at the venue. For example, a boho/nature theme would suit having your hair down and tousled with natural makeup whereas a retro theme would suit an updo with pin curls, heavy eyeliner and thick lashes.

The bridal gown and bridesmaids dresses themselves will also have an impact on the hairstyle that you chose for you and your bridal party. If the dresses have a lot of detail around the neckline then either a short style such as a bob or pixie cut or an updo (for those that don’t want to go for the chop!) will work best to show off the dresses.

It’s your wedding day so it’s important to make sure that your personality shines through in your hair style and makeup. For example if you are looking to achieve an elegant and chic do, opt for updos such as chignons and buns. On the other hand if you want to reflect your laidback self in your style, wear your hair down with natural waves and braids.

Hair extensions are another thing to consider on your big day. We are official partners with Great Lengths, a world leader in quality hair extensions. If you’ve always dreamed of long flowing locks at your wedding or if you need that extra volume to really give your updo that ‘wow’ factor, then hair extensions are a great way to give you styles you’ve maybe dreamed of but thought you’d never have.

It’s not every day that you have the time to accessorize your hair! What better day than your wedding day. There are so many options to choose from, and they can all be incorporated with your hairstyle whether you have decided to wear your hair up or down. Depending on your own personal style, you can opt for something as simplistic as clips or flowers, or go for a statement accessory such as a tiara. It is your wedding day after all!
