The best summer wedding hair tips

When it comes to hair for a summer wedding you want to not only look great, but stay cool as well.

If you are getting married in the summer you will want to check out some hairstyles that are both beautiful and will keep you cool. There are really three choices for how to wear your hair – you can wear it up, wear it down, or wear a combination style. The combination style (part of your hair up and part of your hair down) is one of the most popular styles this season (think elegant Pippa Middleton at the Royal wedding). 

Add Some Interest

No matter what style you choose you can add some interest by including some flowers, ribbons, beads, or other adornments. If you are going to be wearing a veil or headpiece you need to think about what your hair will look like while you’re wearing it as well as after you take it off. It is best to keep the style as simple as possible so that it is easy to care for and will last for the entire day without much fuss. You certainly don’t want to be worrying about your hair all night!

Think About Comfort

Keep in mind that the summer months can be quite hot and muggy. Many churches and reception venues have poor air conditioning systems so you can expect to have quite a bit of heat. Couple that with extreme nerves and you’ll have a very warm day. To combat the heat, consider choosing an up-do. Think about the latest up-dos worn by celebrities on the red carpet. 

Practice Makes Perfect

Whatever your hairstyle choice it is always a good idea to do a “practice run” at least a month ahead of time to make sure that it’s a style that works for you. Always try it with the headpiece so you are sure that it works well. Sometimes the style you like best may not work well with your veil. Take photos of your style so you can refer to them later when you’re making a decision.

Get Professional Help

Even the simplest hairstyles look better when they are created by a professional hair stylist. Have your hair styled early in the day or better yet, get a stylist to come to your home to assist with the style. Assign one of your bridesmaids to the task of making sure your hair stays perfect throughout the day.
