Your hairstyle is your crowning glory on your wedding day, and above all else, it needs to compliment your dress. The style of dress you’ve chosen should be used as a guideline to what type of hairstyle you want to go with on the big day. Consider the neckline, the sleeve length and the length of the dress and whether it would make more sense for your hair to be in an up-do or flowing free. To help get you set on the right path, we’ve taken the most popular dress styles from JJsHouse and explored the best hairstyles for brides with long hair to go with them.
A-Line, Trumpet and Mermaid Styles
These simple styles look best with slicked-back hair or hair worn in a sleek blow-out. Since A-line, trumpet and mermaid dresses all come with various types of necklines and sleeve lengths, pay close attention to the style of dress you’ve chosen and consider whether your hair would look best up or down.
If there’s intricate detailing on the chest or neckline of the dress, wear your hair in a slicked-back up-do to show off those beautiful aspects. Dresses with sleeves also look best with hair pulled back to keep the overall look from getting too busy. Sleeveless or off-the-shoulder dresses look beautiful with hair worn down in a sleek blow-out.
Luxury Dresses and Ball-Gowns
Luxury dresses and ball-gowns always look best with hair in a dramatic up-do to match the drama of the dress. Fortunately, if you’re a bride with long hair, there are hundreds of dramatic up-dos out there that you can choose to go with your gown. Consider what makes you most comfortable as well as the shape of your face and your personality.
Go with a classic chignon or a French twist and bun combo. Create an element of Old Hollywood glamour with a low bun and finger waves in front. Get a more ethereal look with a fishtail that mimics the look of a crown or tiara. Other styles include a high braided bun or a modern updo with embellishments like sparkles or pearls sprinkled throughout.
If you’re opting for a colorful dress, you probably have an outgoing, unconventional personality. A colorful dress combined with a unique style offers a great opportunity to use a matching headpiece or colorful flowers in your hair to compliment the dress. Consider your hair type and find an effective way to attach the headpiece so you don’t have to fumble with it halfway through the ceremony. For thinner hair, use fine-tooth combs. For wavy or curly hair, use barrettes, bobby pins or combs.
No matter what hairstyle you choose, one of the most important things is to make sure that it shines. There are many tricks you can use to help create some super shine for your hair, such as applying a moisturizing conditioner before you start to style it and then using a shine serum once it’s complete to add a nice layer of gloss. With a shiny ‘do styled using the tips above, your wedding look will be absolutely perfect on your special day.
