A wedding invitation promises a lot of pleasant troubles for women: from searching for a gift, to choosing an outfit and a hairstyle that matches it. The latter, by the way, is especially relevant, because the face and hair will be the first to be noticed. And although the bride is still the main one at the celebration, the other ladies present want to look especially festive at such a solemn moment.
If you were invited to a wedding as a guest, girlfriend or witness, then you will probably want to look appropriate for this beautiful and exciting event.
Recently, theme weddings have set the tone. In this case, the choice of hairstyle is strictly limited to the theme of the wedding ceremony.
Such a celebration, on the one hand, reduces the time for choosing a hairstyle and makes it easier to decide on one of 3–5 options. On the other hand, hairstyles in the same style may not always suit all guests without exception so that all women feel comfortable.
Therefore, it is most pleasant to choose a styling for yourself based on your own taste preferences, the most suitable for the outfit, the structure and type of hair, the shape of the face and, of course, age. When choosing one or another option, you should remember a few basic rules that must be taken into account when preparing for the wedding ceremony.
- Home at the celebration — the bride. Your hairstyle (and outfit) should not compete with hers for splendor and pomp. If hairstyles for a wedding for guests should be made in the same style, repeating the image of the bride herself, then they are made more modest, with fewer accessories.
- Before a responsible day, it has recently become popular to do a trial version of a hairstyle. That way you’ll know for sure if it’s right for you. A wedding trial hairstyle will insure against an undesirable situation when it is already time to go on a holiday, and the hairstyle is disappointing and does not cause any positive emotions.
- Naturalness is welcomed in the hairstyle. Reinforced concrete bouffants and hard curls filled with varnish are no longer in fashion. They look tasteless and untidy. In addition, a large number of styling products do not fix the hair sufficiently, on the contrary, make the curls heavier. It is better to lightly fix the finished hairstyle with varnish from a distance of 10–15 centimeters. You can take the same styling tool with you (there are compact packages) and refresh your hair in the middle of the celebration.
- Light negligence and naturalness in the hair lines is welcome. It looks much more impressive than perfectly cleaned, sleek hairstyles. Precise geometry can also be done if required by the style of the dress and the style of styling. In this case, it is recommended to complement the hairstyle with romantic accessories: mesh, unobtrusive bows, elegant flowers.
- If you intend to hold the celebration quite actively, then it is better not to leave your hair loose. The perm will quickly lose its shape after a couple of hours, and perfectly smooth hair can get dirty, as there will be a need to constantly correct it. It is better to choose soft styling options: loose buns, French or Greek braids.
Choosing a wedding hairstyle can take a significant amount of time, because the success of the whole image in the end largely depends on it. The trends of recent seasons offered by professional stylists in festive styling will help you decide on the direction.
If there is no way to get your hair done in the salon at the hairdresser, then you should not worry about this. Naturalness is in fashion, so any woman can perform light and stylish options herself at home.
The most popular hairstyles for medium hair, as most of the fair sex wear this particular length. It opens up a wide field for experiments with texture, volume and style. Always popular and luxurious Greek hairstyles, Hollywood waves, retro style, elegant French styling — every woman at any age can choose what suits her perfectly.
Simple options can be done at home. These are the popular Greek ponytail, French shell, various types of braids, low loose buns and Hollywood classics with loose slightly curly hair. For most of them, you only need a brush, curling iron and the usual styling product (varnish or foam).
Women with short haircuts are more limited in their choice of hairstyles. But the classic elegance in styling and its simplicity with the possibility of self-fulfillment is their advantage. In addition, short hair is very young.
When styling hair for the celebration, delicate accessories will play the main role. These can be hairpins, headbands, satin and lace ribbons. The main thing is not to use too many accents. One large detail or a pair of small hairpins will be enough.
A short haircut draws the main attention to the face due to the clarity of the lines made. Complex manipulations with such hair are not required. At the same time, the styling will keep well throughout the day, while maintaining volume and freshness.
What does the choice depend on?
The choice of hairstyle for a guest of a wedding celebration is determined by many factors, in addition to the length of the hair and your own wishes. To get the best result, to look like a woman irresistible and appropriate to the situation, you should consider:
- a combination of all the details of the image from the color and length of the dress to accessories;
- wedding style and timing;
- face shape and features of appearance;
- age and image you want to produce (seriousness and solidity or lightness and playfulness);
- the season of the wedding, the features of the situation, as well as your activity at the event.
The time of the year in which the wedding is played has one of the decisive values when choosing. In the spring-summer season, guests usually choose more revealing outfits. Therefore, the hairstyle most often involves loose hair. As styling products, light sprays or mousses are usually used to give natural volume.
Summer hairstyles are done in the Greek style. The Greek cascade, braid, lampion or bunch are suitable for any age and type of appearance, adding femininity and grace.
Often the celebration or most of the day takes place outdoors, so you should take care to fix the strands near the face so that the hairstyle does not deteriorate from the wind. Loose hair is good to grab on the back of the head with small strands.
In autumn and winter, the specifics of holding a wedding dictates special conditions for choosing a hairstyle. The vagaries of the weather, moving from a cool street with humid air to a warm and dry room can lead to the rapid destruction of the installation. You should carefully approach the choice of styling products, giving preference to professional ones. Dresses in this season are worn more closed. And the hair is pulled up in elegant hairstyles: shells, French braids.
The time of day in the wedding ceremony also determines the moments when choosing a hairstyle. So, if the marriage is held mainly in the daytime, the styling should be more modest, and the hair collected. It is better to refuse bright accessories and hairpins in the hair.
Evening hairstyles give more room for imagination. You can choose from free-falling curls with glittery accents, original hair ornaments and extravagant styling options.
If you are participating in a themed wedding, you will have to match the declared style as closely as possible. It can be feminine and bewitching retro hairstyles, natural light styling, luxurious baroque hairstyles with strong curls and many complex elements, aesthetics of the 1920s and much more, for which only the imagination of the organizers of the holiday is enough.
What setup to do?
Every woman and girl invited to a wedding wants to look especially irresistible at such a solemn and memorable moment. The most tender images are often chosen by women close to the bride: mother, sister, bridesmaids. Their hairstyle can, in a simpler variation, repeat the hairstyle of the bride, harmonize or echo with her, and also reflect the features of a unique style.
The hairstyle for the sister is selected mainly depending on her age.
An adult young lady, of course, will be able to make her own choice. Although it is better to consult with your newlywed sister in order to avoid misunderstandings and misunderstandings. The older women in the family will help the young sister make her choice.
For very young girls or young girls, the Malvinka styling is optimal. To create it, the hair curls in curls. With the help of a small amount of styling products, brushing and a hair dryer, a basal volume is created. Curls can be left tight with a little sister. Girls will prefer naturalness, therefore, the curls will need to be carefully disassembled with your hands and lightly combed. After that, thin strands at the temples are tucked back and stabbed.
Recently, hair bows have been very relevant. It is easy to make such a hairstyle yourself.
It is worth remembering that the hair in it is beautiful in itself, so additional hairpins are not required.
As a wedding hairstyle for a sister, you can choose one of the many options for braids. Beautiful openwork or free weaving will decorate the head of a girl of any age.
At the wedding, the bridesmaid, if the opportunity and the length of the hair allows, usually chooses a hairstyle similar to the newlywed’s. If this is not required, then the girlfriend has the widest choice — from an elegant bun to retro hairstyles.
If you’re wearing a simple dress, you can opt for an asymmetrical side-do or an ancient Greek-inspired bouffant. For a dress rich in decor, more concise options with one or two accents are suitable. It can be a high ponytail or a stylish bun, a French waterfall of slightly curled hair or weaving in the form of a delicate flower.
Hair accessories also look good, which should be selected according to the style of hairstyle and outfit.
Leave the veils and tiaras to the hostess of the celebration. Flowers should be chosen very carefully, not overshadowing the bride, if her image also contains flowers.
A winning option would be romantic hairpins, jewelry with rhinestones, headbands and ribbons.
