So I was thinking, here at WeddingFanatic, we donâ€™t do much on trends and style. While we love whatâ€™s hot here and now, we think there is something to be said for the timeless weddingâ€¦ Well, I couldnâ€™t help myself. I was listening to some music, and on the CD cover was a woman sporting a loose bun on top of her head. Of course, this made me think of wedding hairstyles. Why not do a post about the hair of then and now!
First up: the concrete curls on the tip top of your head with a huge tiara, so no one doubts that youâ€™re the bride. While the look is formal, and still works for an ultra upscale wedding, you donâ€™t want to waste your time picking bobby pins out of your head all night. Itâ€™s just not what wedding nights are for.
Try a little something like this. You still have the up-do, but itâ€™s not as stuffy. And you can forgo the clichÃ© tiara for something a little lighter. You can wear your hair half up and half down in the picture, or all up (or all down). Oh the possibilitiesâ€¦
And then you have the low styles. This bride has a more modern look, but her hair still looks too stuck to her head! While we love the lower styles, try something a little more whimsical and romantic. This lovely bride has some bangs sweeping across her forehead, which give her a little formality, but the loose curls in the back say â€œItâ€™s my wedding, I want to have a good time!â€
In the end, pick a â€˜do thatâ€™s perfect for you. Afraid youâ€™ll look back and think to yourself â€œAnd I thought the 80â€™s were bad!!â€ ? If you really want a timeless look, check out brides from different decades. What do they all have in common? Then try building your look off of theirs.
Hereâ€™s a little tribute to all the brides of yester-year. Does the hair look at all familiar?
