2013 Wedding Hair Trends
One of my favorite seasons – Wedding season – is fast approaching. As you decide how to wear your hair on your big day, here’s my advice to you; look like you – just the best version of you. If you hate having hair in your face, don’t opt for a loose swooping bang over your forehead, it’ll drive you nuts! If you don’t like the way you look with your hair up, don’t do a full updo. Do keep in mind, your look should be slightly exaggerated as it’ll show better in photos.
In 2013, I’m looking forward to seeing updos that are a little dissheveled, Brigitte Bardot-esque, deeply parted on the side, and personalized with glamourous accessories:
Controlled Frizz – This look is textured, piecey, and a little “un-done”. It’s modern and romantic. What keeps this from becoming messy and too casual? A mixture of frizz and definition, balance in the style (it’s not lopsided or flat), and elegant makeup and accessories. Anyone can wear this style, it can be as voluminous or subtle as you like.
60’s Inspired Updo – Maximum volume in the crown is highlight of this ‘do. This look can be as classic as a French Twist (I love when it’s a little less smooth than a traditional one!), or a low chignon. The extreme height is great for elongating a round face shape. This style can also be referred to as a Bouffant, or Brigitte Bardot updo.
Deep Side Part – And I mean a deeeep side part. I especially love this part when half the hair is tucked back behind the ear. Whether styled down in Old Hollywood waves, or partially up – this look was everywhere on the red carpet at the Golden Globes this year. Ultra feminine, and a great option for those who want to wear their hair completely down but still look formal.
As your big day gets closer, keep in mind you should do a hair trial 2-3 months in advance, give or take a little. The purpose of the trial is to eliminate stress on your Wedding day – if you want to look a certain way when you’re walking down the aisle, you’ll need to make sure you find the right stylist who can help you achieve this. I recommend going to the trial appointment with an idea or two in mind, and pictures are very helpful!
