This sideswept wedding hairstyle is unique in that the girls are mainly placed ontop of the head, instead of at the bottom. I love this style because it can be glamerous or fun, add a few flowers and it can even feel very etheral. It’s a style that works with any face but requires thick hair – consider temporary extensions if you have thin hair.

Vintage weddings are in these past few years and this hairstyles is perfect for those with medium length hair. It’s a low, sleek bun adorned with vintage pin curls coming down the sides. 

Now that you have a few ideas, there are some other things to consider. A few quick tips:

  • Purchase Your Dress First:
    Find a dress that works for you and create a hairstyle around it. 
  • Know Your Accessories:
    Not every hairstyle is meant to be worn with flowers, a viel, tiare ect. Bring whatever you *know* you’re going to be wearing on your wedding day to your hairstylist. She can help tailor your hairstyle to the peice.
  • Get a Trial Run:
    You  know your wedding day wouldn’t run smoothly without a dress rehearsal the night before. Working with hair is the same concept. Maybe the style you loved, doesn’t look as great in practice. 

Last but not least, healthy hair is gorgeous hair. Personally, I battle dull and lifeless hair on a regular basis. The products I use play an important role in the health of my hair. Products that are too drying or heavy way down my curls and steal the shine.
