I had absolutely no idea, so I looked at a few inspiration pics and then discussed it with the hairstylist. I was thinking half up, half down but she pointed out that because my dress has straps and I have long hair, the neckline area could look a bit ‘busy’ with hair, straps, a necklace and a veil and she advised a low updo.

The other thing that clinched it for me is that I can do half up, half down myself – it won’t look as good as professional styling but I could do it. Whereas a curled updo is something I could NEVER achieve by myself, so I’m not likely to ever have one again!

This was a tough thing for me as well.  I do ALOT with my hair and like it multiple ways.  So I took weather and my covered back into consideration.  Since wind and snow was going to be a factor I had a loose updo to keep it in place and give it the staying power to last all day.  I also didn’t want to cover up the back of my dress with my hair so having it pulled up made the most sense.  I felt I still looked like me (as I wear it pulled back alot) just polished.

I chose curly & down, with sidesweapt bangs.

I’ve always had those off to the side type bangs, and I feel I have a large forhead to try to do anything else with them. I’m not one for wearing my hair up, either. Curls look natural on me.

I always say to my brides you want to look like a special version of your self on the day. you dont want something so different your un recognisable or that you feel uncomfortable. i also say un less you have a stunning profile clear skin and perfect oval face, then dont wear your hair scraped back in a bun. it looks harsh in pics but the odd few carry it off amazing. I chose my hair by looking back in photos and seeing how i like my hair in ther pictures. i decided all down big waves, i didnt want anything too structured being on a beach. taking the dress sytle theme and venue in to consideration is always important.xxx
