From the venue to the flowers and the centerpieces to the first dance; they’ve all got to have some serious sparkle. Once you’ve got the dress in the bag, only a truly great hairstyle stands between you and the event of the year.
The first step is to make sure that you have an excellent stylist and makeup artist on board. These guys will be the cornerstone of your beauty regime on the big day. The right team can conjure up magic with little more than rollers and a color palette, so don’t hesitate to tell them exactly what you want.
Whether it’s a flawless smoky eye, a delicate summertime vibe, or an ornate chignon, their job is to make sure that you look breath. Keep reading for some gorgeous hair and makeup ideas for your wedding day.
Side Chignon and Nude Makeup
For a bridal look that is both delicate and dreamy, try a side chignon. This updo works best with slightly wavy hair, especially if the volume is tamed with a cute headband. The hair should be carefully split so that it has a deep side parting and a wavy section is left to frame the features. Pair with soft, subtle makeup. The lip should be left nude and the skin mostly pale, but with a slight touch of bronzer for a glowing complexion.
Finger Waves and Rosy Makeup
This look is perfect for brides who love vintage vibes. The finger wave is an old-fashioned style, which was popular in the 1920s. It is a big hit nowadays with celebrities and designers like Stella McCartney and Marc Jacobs. These deep undulating curls can be tricky to create, but with the help of a skilled stylist, you’ll be a gorgeous period bride in no time. Team finger waves with a rosy pink lip and matching sweep of pink blush.
Blunt Bangs and Dramatic Makeup
If the gentle look is not for you, opt for full on drama and make your features stand out. Fifties style weddings are growing in popularity and chunky, blunt bangs are ideal for this. Wear your hair in a kind of inverted quiff, by making the bangs super broad and angular. They should be heavy and complemented by a simple updo; something like a low-slung bun. You can get away with a bold red lip and dark, smoky eyes because the style is rather sultry.
Braided Buns and Shimmery Makeup
For an updo which is guaranteed to turn every head in the room, try a beautiful braided bun. This style is regal, sophisticated, and great for weddings. Your stylist will create two long braids and then carefully twist them into a bun, which is tightly secured on the nape of the neck. For extra sparkle, they can intertwine a beaded headband or attach a jeweled slide. To finish the look, enhance your features with a coral colored lip and shimmery eye makeup.
