Are you getting married? If so, you probably have a lot of plans. This is a guide on what you should avoid doing when choosing your wedding hairstyle.

Your Big Day = Big Hair?

If you are getting married, one of the things that you will want to do is to have a wonderful hairstyle to go with your dress. You want your hair to look as great as the rest of you does. But there are things that you can do that will hurt your overall look. Below are four huge mistakes women make when they are choosing a hairstyle for their wedding.

Choosing a Style Because a Celebrity Wore It

If you are getting married, don’t choose a hairstyle that you saw a celebrity wearing. Choose one that is going to be flattering for you. Just because you see someone famous wearing a certain style it doesn’t mean that it is going to look good on you. Wear something that is right for you.

Letting Someone Else Dictate Your Style

This is a lot like choosing one that someone famous wore. But letting someone else choose the style that you are going to wear is wrong. You need to feel comfortable when you’re getting married and you won’t feel comfortable if someone else chooses your hairstyle.

Wearing the Wrong Style for Your Hair

If you have a curl cascade, it’s going to look beautiful with your dress. But if you have hair that is very straight and it won’t hold curls, you will be wasting time and money. Rather than doing this, talk to your hairstylist about the style that is going to match your dress and hair. This is going to make you look much better put together and help everything mesh well.

Using a lot of Accessories

When you are using hair accessories, you want to just add to the style of your hair. You can do that with adding a little something that sparkles. But if you use too many, you can take away from the overall affect. If you are wearing a gown that is simple and jewelry, adding an accessory to your hair can enhance it. But with a very detailed dress, it can be too much. So, a good rule of thumb is this - if your dress is very detailed, take it easy on your accessories. If your dress is plain, you can use more accessories.


These are the things that you should avoid doing when you are getting your hair fixed for your wedding. When you avoid making these mistakes, you will have a better day at your wedding and you will look much more beautiful.
