When it comes to deciding how to wear your hair for your wedding, you should really consider the season and climate. If you’re one of the many, many brides that ties the knot in the Spring or Summer you’ll probably want to follow these suggested guidelines to ensure your wedding hair style lasts from the moment you leave the salon, all the way to the end of the night.
1. Style your hair according to how it usually dries
When thinking about wedding hair styles, keep in mind how your hair personally reacts to Spring and Summer conditions; in particular humidity. If humid weather makes your hair curl, consider having your hair done in all curls or maybe an updo. On the flip side if your hair stays poker straight in humidity don’t try any wedding hair styles with long curls, they will just end up going flat.
2. Try to avoid extra frizz
We know that humidity causes frizzy hair, but there is an easy technique to keep it from getting out of control. Gently blot dry your hair with a towel the last time you wash your hair before the wedding. Don’t rub it dry with the towel because this will only cause further damage to any broken hair, thus increasing the chance for frizz. After blot drying your hair try applying an anti-frizz serum to damp hair. This should help for how you have your wedding hair styled the next day.
3. Use the ‘cool’ setting on your blow dryer
When using your blow dryer on hot, this allows your hair follicles to open, increasing the chance of damage and frizz. So after you blow dry your hair, set the blow dryer to the ‘cool’ setting. Using this setting will in turn close your previously opened hair follicles. This will help make your hair look gorgeous for any long wedding hair styles or updos you may have done.
4. Keep anti-frizz serum with you on the wedding day
A great tip to brides is to keep a little bottle of anti-frizz serum with you the day of the wedding. This will help prevent frizz if the humidity should try and ruin your wedding hair style. It will also come in handy for any of your bridesmaids hairstyles that may be suffering from frizz as well.
5. Be true to who you are
Many brides feel they have to make some dramatic change to their hair for their wedding. But you don’t want to look back at your pictures ten years from now and say… what was I thinking. So stay true to you, have your hair stylist do your wedding hair in a way that’s classic and always looks good.
6. Don’t have your hair done too early
Another key thing to remember when getting your hair done for a Spring and Summer wedding is timing. Because you have to worry about humidity, frizz and your hair potentially falling throughout the day, don’t get your hair done too early in the day. If you’re getting married at 7:00pm don’t get your hair done at 9:00am. This will help keep your wedding hair style looking flawless as you walk down the aisle.
