Choosing hairstyles is an important part of the process.

Choosing hairstyles is an important part of the day

Once you have chosen your hairstyle for your big day, it is time to consider your bridesmaid hairstyles. Often bridesmaids have worn their hair the same, ┬ábut it is not required. The most flattering hairdos are based on the bridesmaid’s face shape. Or if one of your bridesmaids has short hair and one has long hair, it is almost impossible to have matching
hairstyless. There are many factors to consider when planning for your bridesmaids’ hair. Whether you want them to choose their style, or you prefer to have them match, choosing the hairstyles does not have to be stressful.

Tips for Choosing Bridal Hairstyles

    1. Consider the location. The wedding and reception location can surprisingly compliment hair. Typically, updos are ideal for very classical and princess-like locations: old cathedrals, buildings that look like castles, or any place with very traditional decorations. Conversely, keeping hair down or at least partly down compliment the natural beauty of many outdoor weddings, especially ones in large wooded areas. If the formality of the hairstyle does not match the background, you may find that it throws off the overall feel of the event and of the pictures.
    2. Hairstyles should compliment the bridesmaids’ dresses. Like complimenting the location, the formality of the hairstyles should compliment the formality of the dresses. Since updos are more common for formal attire, dresses that are more prom-like would look great with updos. Likewise, dresses that are more free flowing look great with half down hair.
    3. Keep the weather in mind. If your wedding or any of your event will be outside, bridesmaids should keep their hair up. Even half up hairstyles can be risky; all it takes is a little gust of wind to ruin a potentially perfect photo. If you really prefer having your bridesmaids keep their hair down, then plan on it. Just be willing and ready to have a backup hairstyle if the forecast suddenly becomes windy.
    4. Keep to your budget. One of the best ways to be a bridezilla is demanding that your bridesmaids do their hair a certain way and then not pay for it. If you really want your bridesmaids to have the same hair, be ready to pay for all of them. One idea to consider for lower priced updos is hairstyling schools. But keep in mind, they are slower than a regular beauty shop.Technically the bridesmaids could do their own hair, but if one turns out differently, it could cause a problem. If you cannot fit paying for your party’s hairstyles then you should not demand a certain style. They may choose to get their hair professionally done, but for your friends who can’t afford to see a hairdresser, letting them pick their own style is one of the best ways to honor them.
    5. If you choose to have your bridesmaids have matching hairstyles, consider their opinions. That is not to say that you shouldn’t make the final decision, but including their opinions in the process will not only help them feel closer to you when they may feel like they are losing you, but will also give you the best idea as to what they may look good wearing. You may think your friends are all beautiful, but chances are they have styles that they adore and detest for themselves. Considering their ideas will help you make the most informed choice possible.
    6. Of all the hairstyle concerns, the most important is that of the bride. You want your bridesmaids to look great, but at the end of the day, you should have the look that you feel you look best in. Of course you want your bridesmaids to look beautiful, but you will only have one wedding day, so make sure you prioritize your hair!
    7. Hairstyles depends on each woman's type of hair.

      Each hair style will depend on each woman’s type of hair.
