I have wanted to wear my hair down, looking natural and romantic with curls, however, I’m worried that it hides my chest and shoulders, making me look boxy or something. Would wearing my hair up look better? Or maybe to the side?
these are the hairstyles I love:
which one should I pick?

I prefer hair down with strapless dress. Just my preference. I love that first inspiration pic!

I perfer hair down. though it does depend how its done. Make sure you dont look like you have spiral curls that are over done and not brushed out.

It’s hard to say without a pictire to compare but I generally prefer hair up. My hair gets really frizzy in humidity/sweat/dancing too much and I didnt want to risk it so I wore it up for my day.

I think it can really depend on your hair. I agree with @Bostongrl25 that my hair gets very frizzy etc when worn down so I like it up because it has better staying power that way. I did however wear my hair down for a friends wedding and the stylist curled it and she asked me if my hair held curls well or not – I had no idea! I guess it did because it did hold up pretty well but at an autumn wedding (I don’t think it would have in heat/humidity).
I would play around even at home with some styles and see what you think looks best on you with a strapless style. Even just up versus down, snap some photos – see what you think. I like both styles you posted here. So it’s up to what will make you feel most beautiful on your wedding day.

@bellaboo79: I think half up half down….that way you have the best of both worlds!
I think your hair would look really pretty like this!

@bellaboo79: hair down soft curls will be nice

I was concerned about this also, I have a strapless dress and I am doing my hair to the side with soft curls. Id do a trail and see whats best.

Based on your hair length and texture, I’m going to recommend that you wear it up. Your inspiration picture is beautiful, and I believe an updo will keep your hair consistently beautiful throughout your wedding day/evening.
I am full-figured, and I wore my hair up with my strapless dress.

when I did my trial I saw how much my hair up opened up my look.. when I added hair up during my 1st fitting it just seemed to look better.. I’d suggest some casual trials and then maybe an offical one with your stylist.
also when i did my 1st trial hair style the stylist pointed out how much MORE lighter hair shows off in updos.. pinterest away and you are sure to find some awesome styles! (forgive bad typing I cut the tip of my finger open and its amazing how badly that hurts to type even with a bandaid!)

If your hair is on the fine side and doesn’t stay curled easily, I’d recommend hair up… there’s nothing worse than a bride with sloppy curls halfway through the wedding day. Regardless of your figure, you’ll look great in both! 🙂

I think the most important thing with either hairstyle, whether up or down, is to keep some volume on top. It helps elongate the face, as opposed to having the hair slicked back. So I am personally wearing my hair in half up with some volume on top. Best of luck!

@weddingbound: I really like that picture, I think I have it saved in my hairstyle folder… I hate how the internet has me looking at everything and saving everything, and not making a definite choice.
I have my hair trial on Friday, so wish me luck! Any pointers for the hair trial would be appreciated.. Do you think they will let me try two different styles or more? I’m one of those people that can get easily swayed, but I really want to make sure that I don’t walk away unsatisfied. I know I should bring my veil, but I don’t plan on wearing it all day.. is it simple to take out the veil or will there be an issue with my hair?
I will take pics on Friday, and post for opinions. Thanks guys.
