3 of the Most Beautiful (and Practical) Wedding Hairstyles
When it comes to your wedding day, smart brides know that wedding-day beauty and hair need to be both breathtakingly beautiful and sensibly practical. This is especially true for beach weddings. No bride wants to spend hours getting her hair done only to have the natural elements destroy all of that time, effort and hard work. Yes, you want to have that wow-factor when you walk down the aisle, but no you don't want to be stressing that your already styled hair is not going to hold up as the big day ensues.
So what do you do? You choose a style that works well with your natural hair and texture—and then you glam it up to wedding-day-worthy fabulousness. To help you out, we've sought out the newest and hottest hair trends for the blushing bride that are sure to give you both beauty and practicality. They're all quite stunning, really. From down-dos to up-dos and the in-between, we've chosen 3 of the best and most practical wedding hairstyles that you'll want to consider.
Romance-Inspired UpdosWhat is more romantic than a wedding? Seriously? Your wedding day is the idyllic opportunity to elevate romance to the ultimate level, hair included. Think gorgeous flowing locks pulled backed loosely and accentuated with diamond or pearl hairpins, flowery or beachy accents, or strategically placed highlights in which ever sweeping updo best suits your face, your hair texture and your own personal style. From low and loose chignons to high and intricate buns to wide and soft interwoven braiding, you are really only limited to your imagination. Just remember not to keep it too tight or too polished to ensure the quintessential done-but-not-too-done-up look. A few face-framing strands or loose-hanging locks are a nice touch to the ultimate windswept, yet elegant look of a romance-inspired updo.
Beautiful Bridal Braids
Braids aren't going anywhere anytime soon. They are still a hot fashion trend both on the bridal runways and off. Extra-long hair is an asset this year for fashionable brides on their big day and for anyone on any given day who desires a fresh, modern look. While smaller braided accents are big trends in hair this year, as are delicate plaiting, it's a little bit of a different story on the bridal scene. Imagine a long and loose braid highlighted with accents of flowers, diamonds or pearls strategically placed to perfection. There are so many choices when it comes to braiding styles, you don't have to settle for the standard French braid. Be a little bolder, a bit more daring—and don't forget to keep it loose, sweeping and artistically done so that your wedding guests won't be able to take their eyes off of you (or your hair).
