To make your wedding day absolutely unforgettable, your hairstyle has to be beautiful, as such a special occasion warrants it.

Types of hair wedding styles:

  • Long wedding hairstyles with beautiful hair cascading down a woman’s back is so gorgeous.

  • Whether the hair is worn down or up, or curly, or straight, there are so many different hairstyles from which to choose.

  • Altering the wedding hairstyle to coordinate with a dress or to fit the theme is so easy for a woman with long hair.

  • The bride should have a hair style which is classy, elegant, and most of all, seamless. Everything that she has on her body on her wedding day should match and complement each other.


A bride needs to have a perfect head of hair on her wedding day. Having silky and shining tresses is a reflection of a bride’s beauty on her day of days, and it is something that will show and be immortalized in her wedding photographs, to be viewed in the many, many years to come.

If you are a bride-to-be, you should know that having perfect hair for your wedding takes time and preparation. You will not have it in an instant as you dress for your wedding. If you want to have great hair for when you get married, you should aim to have healthy hair. To get your hair in a truly healthy condition will need at least six months of preparation.

Six Months Before the Wedding: Hair Diet

Having healthy hair starts with doing a number of lifestyle changes at least six months before the wedding. These lifestyle changes include eating a balanced diet, getting adequate sleep, and minimizing habits such as drinking alcohol and smoking.

Diet plays a huge factor in maintaining a healthy hair. As the sages have it, we are what we eat. Thus, to have healthy and beautiful hair in time for your wedding, you should start eating a protein-rich diet. Hair is made up of keratin so protein can strengthen it. Lean red meat, whole grains, soy and legumes are excellent sources of protein.

Also, to prevent hair loss, you should include iron and Vitamin C in your diet. Iron keeps the pigmentation of the hair vivid and adds to the hair’s glow. Vitamin C, on the other hand, helps the body absorb iron more easily. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that will help deal with the free radicals in your hair.

If you are suffering from dandruff or an itchy scalp, it may help a lot to include zinc in your diet. Foods rich in zinc are shellfish, lentils and almonds.

Six Weeks Before the Wedding: Hair Hygiene and Styling

Aside from your diet, you should also pay attention to your hair hygiene. Wash your hair daily with a high-quality shampoo and conditioner that is especially made for your hair type. The same goes for your other hair care products: they should be of high quality and suited for the type of your hair.

While you are taking care of your hair, you should also start consulting your hairstylist about how you will wear your hair on your wedding day. Brainstorm with him/her your ideas on what kind of hairdo you want to wear as you walk down the aisle.

Two Weeks Before the Wedding

By this time, you should have a healthy head of hair if you followed a hair diet regimen. You should have also decided on what hairstyle to wear on the day of your wedding.

Two weeks before the wedding is the time to get the hair trimmed. It is also the time to get the hair colored; that is, if you color your hair. In this way, you will make sure that the discolored roots will not show and that the highlights and the lowlights of your hair will be updated.

On the Night Before the Wedding

Dirty hair is far easier to style than squeaky clean hair. So, you should wash your hair 24 hours before the wedding, and then leave it as it is.

On Your Wedding Day

Relax and do not mind your hair too much. You have done everything you can do to have beautiful hair on your wedding day, so you should just have fun and enjoy the first day of your married life.

Just in case your hairstyle unravels on you, however, have one of your bridesmaids bring a tote filled with emergency hair styling products like spare pins, clips, brushes and hairsprays so you can redo your hair in a jiffy.

Tips for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Hair style:

Task yourself with researching hairstyles online to see what strikes your fancy. View a few Web sites, especially wedding-centered sites, and print out your favorite styles.

Pick up a few bridal magazines and get an idea of what people are doing. Bridal hairstyles come in countless fashions and trends. Subscribe to a bridal magazine or pick one up every now and again to give yourself some ideas.

Go for a sample hairdo prior to the big day. First of all, getting a sample hairdo done will give you an idea of what to expect from your wedding day hairstyle. Secondly, meeting with your stylist prior to the date will give you both a chance to play around with your hair and the options available to you. You can try all different styles and see what you like best.

Take pictures at your sample hairstyle appointment. Even if you have an elephant’s memory, bring your camera along to the salon and ask your stylist to take some pictures of you with your hairstyle. Save these pictures so you can look back and decide if the style is absolutely positively what you want on your wedding day.

Try your hair several ways. Even if you think you know how you want to wear it, it can’t hurt to let your stylist play around a bit with your hair. Get a complete up-do, a completely down style, and a style that involves hair half-up and half-down.

Wear a shirt or outfit that is similar to the style of the dress. If your wedding gown is strapless, wear a tube top or a strapless dress to the salon so you can get an even better idea of what you will look like on your wedding day.

Don’t forget your headpiece! If you plan to wear a veil or a tiara on your wedding day, don’t forget to bring them along to your sample hairstyle appointment. Make sure you get pictures with this as well!
