How to Style your Hair for a Daytime Wedding Guest
It's wedding season, and it's time to start looking for the perfect dress, shoes and accessories, so that you'll be one of the most glamorous guests on show. Once you've chosen what you're going to wear, you need to think about the makeup and hairstyle that go best with your outfit, so that you'll make the best possible impression. This OneHowTo article will give you some simple tips on how to style your hair for a daytime wedding guest.
Don't rush into any decisions about your wedding hairstyle; first, you need to wait and see what the weather will be like. If it's raining, it's better to wear your hair tied back, as if you wear it down it can go all frizzy, which will spoil your appearance right from the word go. Weddings often go on for quite a while, and you'll want to look as beautiful as you did when you first came out of the hairdresser's throughout the day, for the ceremony and all the photos afterwards.
The wedding location will also give you an idea of what the most suitable hairstyle will be. For beach or outdoor weddings, you'll be most comfortable if you wear your hair up or half up, so that it remains in place regardless of whether it's hot or windy, or if there's a sea breeze -- you'll be fine whatever the elements throw at you. You've also got the option of going for a more casual look at these types of weddings and civil ceremonies, with a less elaborate hairstyle involving plaits or a side ponytail. These styles can be really flattering, giving you a youthful, even romantic appearance.
Here are some other hairstyles that are perfect for daytime weddings, and which are really fashionable at the moment. If you're after a more formal, elegant appearance, the best hairstyle to go for might be the half up half down look. It's simple, you just have to gather all your hair to one side and let if fall over your shoulder, while keeping the opposite side completely clear. Use tongs to make your hair wavy and give it more volume and substance.
Out of all the tied back looks you can choose from, it's worth highlighting the the low bun for a morning wedding, an original style that makes a change from the classic topknot. Bring out your sweet side by braiding a few locks of hair on one side, and if your dress isn't too sparkly or overloaded with jewels, why not add a pretty floral adornment.
Women with short hair look great with hairstyles that add volume to their hair and give it a casual touch, or by going for a soft, wavy style. Add hairpins and other accessories to get a neat, loose perm effect.
You could opt for accessories like hair pieces and wide-brimmed hats for daytime weddings, especially if you've been invited to a formal, sophisticated event. You should choose your hair piece based on your dress, the shape of your face and your figure. Flower crowns and hairnets with floral motifs are in fashion at the moment.
