Bridal Hair: What to Consider before Wearing it Down

Many brides dream of wearing their hair down, whether it’s short and stylish or long and flowing. Hair worn down for your wedding day can look stunning with the perfect veil or tiara. There is no doubt that a bride can be striking with the perfect “down” hairstyle, but there are a few things you’ll want to consider before making the decision.

Summer Weddings

June is the most popular month for a wedding, so if you’re dreaming of a sun-kissed wedding day, you might want to consider wearing your hair up. A summer wedding and long, flowing hair can result in a sweaty bride; something you don’t want to remember in pictures. If you’re planning a summer wedding, especially if it will be outdoors, consider a charming updo that will look amazing with your dress.

Beach Weddings

Beach weddings are beautiful, and are especially endearing to brides who love nature and the water. However, it’s not the perfect setting for wearing your wedding hair down. It’s naturally windy at the beach, and you could end up with wind blown hair that won’t stay out of your face as you’re trying to recite your vows. If you’re planning a beach wedding, you should consider wearing your hair up and investing in a fair amount of styling spray.

Bridal Jewelry

Another thing to consider when trying to determine what your wedding day hair will look like is your bridal jewelry. A bride who will be wearing her grandmother’s special diamond earrings won’t want to hide them behind locks of flowing hair. If you will be wearing jewelry with sentimental value for your wedding day, opt for a hairstyle that will allow you to show it off – both to your guests and in your wedding pictures.


Finally, before deciding on your wedding day hair style, you’ll want to consider your theme. Many themes call for specific types of hair. For instance, for a tropical or luau-themed wedding, you would probably go with a more relaxed hair style than you would with a Victorian-themed wedding.

By taking these things into account, you can determine whether to wear your hair down for your wedding day or opt for a cute updo that suits your style and personality.
