How to Style your Hair on your Special Day

No matter your hair type, whether you have long hair, short hair, thick hair, thin hair, curly hair, or straight hair, it is important to get your hair right. You’ve picked your dress, your shoes and colour theme, so that just leaves the final details of hair and makeup to finalise. But how do you choose which style is best for your special day? And how do you find a style that works with the rest of your plans?


We know how important the details are, after all Lily’s Boutique has supplied wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses for years, so we know a thing or two about putting together the perfect look. We have a range of beautiful bride and bridesmaid wedding hairstyles to inspire you, great for the whole bridal party. So, take a seat, relax, and prepare your planning books to find the right style for you and your day.


An UpDo with a Twist

Wearing your hair up is a beautiful complement to a lower or intricately designed back. It’s also ideal in hotter weather to minimise frizz and take some of the heat off your neck. Updos don’t have to be simple though, and whether you’re showing off beautiful details, or just prefer your hair up and off your face, consider adding some sparkle or flowers to your hair as a lovely accessory. We love this hair piece from Amazon, for example. This delicate pearl wedding hair vine from Lace&Favour is beautiful for long hair.


Half-Up Half-Down Curls with Flowers

Sweet, bouncing curls paired with a few strewn flowers are a classic combination for a wedding day hairdo that radiates romance. This look is best suited for a bohemian or rustic wedding with a subtle lace or chiffon gown. This gorgeous floral and leafy hairpiece from Not On The Highstreet would look fabulous at the right laid-back event.

Short Hair? Heck yeah!

Got a shorter style? Check out this leafy hair clip from Etsy which is beautiful but also practical. Having a swept-back, half up do is a simple and easy technique to keep hair out of your face while also looking like it’s down. Something like this would be perfect if you’re getting married outdoors on a windy day.


Statement Hair Pieces

If you really want to shine and be different on your wedding day, try a couple of statement headpieces. Whether you prefer the glam, or the more ethereal, you’ll be certain to stand out on your big day while being true to your style. This gorgeous white gold statement crown by Victoria Millesime would really make an impression.


It’s Your Day

In the end, no matter what you pick, the most important thing is that you're happy. Always go with your own heart when it comes to showing off your beauty and being yourself. Your happiness is key on such a big day, and there’s no harm in trying different styles to work out what suits you.
