The ups and downs of wedding hair

The ups and downs of wedding hair: Image 1 Credit: Megan Duffield PhotographyDeciding on the right hairstyle can be daunting, especially if you're not a regular salon-goer. Most brides want to look like themselves on the big day; just a more glamorous version. Finding the perfect look to suit you, your personality, the style and theme of your day are key considerations.

Do your research, get personal recommendations, take photos of cuts, finishes and looks you like and book a trial with your chosen stylist. Get in quick to avoid disappointment, as professional wedding specialists get booked up early!

Take a picture of your dress with you to your appointment and get plenty of snaps of your hair from all angles during the trial to make sure you're happy with the final effect. If in doubt, avoid anything too radical like changing the colour of your hair or chopping off your long locks just before the big day. After all, you want your partner to recognise you as you walk down the aisle!

Award-winning East Anglian hairstylist Gemma Holiday shares some of her top tips to help you choose.

  • The most important thing when deciding on your wedding hairstyle is to not change who you are. Look for a style that mirrors your personality so you can look and feel like the most flawless version of yourself. 
  • Your hair shouldn't be competing with your dress; it should complement it. If your gown is simple it's safe to go with a more dramatic hairstyle. For an extravagant ballgown consider something more subtle and elegant.
  • Deciding whether to have your hair up or down is often one of the most common dilemmas for brides. My advice is to focus on two factors; firstly what suits the dress and secondly, and most importantly, what are you most comfortable with. And if you still can't decide there's always the option of hair up for the ceremony and a half-up, half-down look for the evening.
  • Perfect hair should look like it naturally fell up, not full of pins and hairspray. There are techniques to conceal hair grips and with the right hairspray, it shouldn't feel heavy and you don't need a lot to keep your hair in place. Visit www.instagram.com/gemmaholidayhairartistry
