Bridal Up Dos
When it comes to bridal hairstyles, there seems to be a trend with up-dos. So, we found a few that might help make your day even more beautiful.
No matter if you have short or long hair, the perfect bridal up-do is not hard to do. Some brides-to-be may have nice, long hair however in order to achieve the perfect up-do, she may still need to add some hairpieces or extensions for added length, volume and/or color.
It is much easier (as well as faster and cheaper) to apply a spiral curled hairpiece that is tacked up rather than curling your own hair and hoping the hairspray holds your curls the entire day. Reducing the ”dressing” time will allow you to focus on the other millions of things already on your mind.
The key to achieving the perfect “bump” is VOLUME. Without volume, your bump will fail to make its statement. If teasing your hair underneath is not an option for you, try adding some additional hair or roll the hair with something the size of your desired bump (i.e. a sock, etc.) We have even gotten rave reviews on using maxi-pads in knee-high nylons to create some awesome “bumps”. No matter what you use, it doesn’t always have to cost an arm and a leg to get the look you want.
A loose bun is one of the most natural looks for all hair lengths. You simply loosely roll the hair sideways and tack it up with bobby pins to secure it. No need for it to look perfect because it is supposed to naturally look a bit messy. Add in a princess crown, a decorated headband or just some “angel’s breath” flowers for a finished look. Use hairspray to set the hair strands to look as “neat” or as “messy” as you desire.
DRAPING BANGS WITH BUN:
This is personally one of my favorite bridal styles because it looks so sophisticated and full of style. If you have bangs or like the “draping bangs” look, this style will look absolutely amazing on you. If your hair is not long enough in the front to connect to your bun, you will need to add a couple of clip-in extensions. If you do not connect your hair to your bun, you will spend much of the day removing your hair from your face and could pose to be a problem during picture-taking. If you also plan to use a hairpiece for the bun, just add the bangs into your own ponytail before you add the hairpiece. This will ensure that it is secured down properly. After you have secured the bang, add the hairpiece and tack up the ends to complete the style. Use hairspray to secure any shorter hairs from the bangs, sides and nape to keep the style neat.
