Whether An Updo Might Be A Better Fit

Long loose curls may be your ideal wedding hairstyle, but are they the most practical? If you already have long heavy hair those curls may not hold until the end of the night. Consider switching to an updo instead. Updos hold better throughout the day, will keep you nice and cool, and you can also decide to frame your face with a few curls.

What Her Bridesmaids May Pick

You should talk with your bridesmaids before you pick your wedding day hairstyle. You can fill them in on how you're planning on doing your hair so that they don't also show up with the same hairstyle. It's also always a fun idea to invite your Maid of Honor along to your hair trial or consultation before your big day. 


To Keep It Out Of Her Face

There's still a way to keep your hair out of your face and from sticking to your makeup on your wedding day, even if you don't choose a full updo. Instead, opt for a half up hairstyle so that you can get the best of both worlds. You'll be grateful your hair isn't getting in the way during pictures, but you'll also still be able to show off your gorgeous hair. 


To Get Regular Haircuts

Some brides may choose to grow their hair out before the wedding-- and that's okay! However, it's still important to continue getting at least regular trims so that you can keep your hair healthy and strong. Your hair won't hold any curl and will look lifeless if you continue to skip those haircuts! 


How Much Time It Will Take

You should also make sure to talk with your hairstylist about how much time it will take to complete your look. Wedding days run on a tight schedule and you definitely don't want to be rushing at the last minute to finish your hair. You should plan out your wedding morning entirely so that you're not stressed out.
