Wedding hairstyles: inspiration and tutorials

Tie the knot with the perfect wedding day hairstyle!

Wedding day hairstyles are so important for so many reasons. There are countless things to consider, from how the photos will turn out to practical concerns such as what it actually feels like to wear a heavy updo all day long. Most important of all, however, is finding a bridal hairstyle that makes you feel beautiful!

The bride is, without doubt, the center of attention on her wedding day. As such, she'll have all eyes on her, and her hairstyle, from the ceremony right through to the end of the day. Her chosen hairstyle needs to be perfect, whether she chooses a romantic updo, a classic chignon, princess curls or something edgy.

The main factors when choosing a bridal hairstyle are how comfortable you are wearing it - if you don't usually wear your hair up, it's probably best to keep it down for your big day - and how special it makes you look and feel.

After you've picked a bridal hairstyle, the bridesmaids need to be taken care of. As long as everyone has a clear idea of what you want, you can let them choose their own looks, or you can all collaborate to decide which bridemaids hairstyles will work best - just remember that a one-style-fits-all approach might not make everyone feel totally at ease.

Grooms also need to think their wedding hairstyles through to make sure they end up with a 'do that looks great and complements their outfit. The same goes for wedding guests, albeit with much less pressure!

Finally, preparing your hair for your wedding day is essential. You want your mane to be on its best behaviour, and that will only happen if your hair is strong and healthy.
