One of the big issues for any bride is ‘what to do with my hair’. Do you grow it? Leave as is? When do you need to decide? Does the style go with your dress? SO MANY QUESTIONS!
We’re going to be giving you some help with wedding hairstyles in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, to start us off, how about a look at the latest wedding hair trends for 2011…
If your hair is long, you need to decide between an updo, leaving it down or a half and half look.
One of the big wedding hair trends for 2011 is keeping your hair completely away from your face. It’s total exposure, but creates a very elegant look and is perfect for people with good bone structure and fits a lot of different wedding dress styles. The latest look in this vein is the beehive. Feminine but funky (I’m here and I’ve got hairrr!), you can really show off your vintage look with this style.
If you’ve got long hair, you can wear it down and maybe even get a permanent straightening treatment to make sure your wedding look is long lasting. Long hair is also perfect for off the shoulder dresses.
Other 2011 trends for long hair include high buns and double hair knots, creating a relaxed look which is also really romantic.
And if you’ve got short hair, extensions are NOT the only option. There’s no need for overkill on the gel or spikes that are higher than your tiara, but you can definitely go for sculptured looks or perhaps grow it a little to get a more relaxed short look with plenty of volume.
In short, it’s all got a little more relaxed this year, after lots of structure and 1940s-style vintage sets in recent times. Just check out the Golden Globes 2011 catwalk looks for inspiration.
