The perfect hairstyle will literally be your crowning glory on your wedding day. It is important to choose a “do” which complements your bridal gown style, veil, and your bridal jewelry. Take a look at these trends for elegant hairstyles for winter weddings.
Winter weddings are inherently a bit more formal than summer ones. At no other time of the year do people dress as festively as around the winter holidays.
This feeling of elegance should extend to your bridal hairstyle as well. Leave the messy beach hair for the summer months, and opt for a cold weather hairdo that is polished and sophisticated. You will also want to opt for fabulous crystal bridal jewelry and a sparkling headpiece to coordinate.
The ultimate in bridal chic this year is a smooth low updo gathered slightly to one side. Have your stylist make it very polished with a serum or pomade to combat the dry flyaway hair that plagues most of us during the winter months.
A low side part will add to the style of this elegant bridal hairdo. The perfect finishing touch is a fabulous little cage veil with a feathered accent. Pair with crystal bridal jewelry such as dazzling chandelier earrings, and wear with a slinky silk wedding gown.
Braids are back in style for brides. A low braided bun is a very romantic hairdo for a winter bride. It is a nice variation on the smooth low sideswept updo.
Because the wrapping of the braids will add a nice texture, keep the front of the hair simple and position the bun in the center, not asymmetrically. For bridal hair jewelry, either tuck a jeweled comb into one side of the braided bun, or decorate with a scattering of sparkling hairpins. This would be a beautiful hairstyle to complement a romantic lace bridal gown.
The classic French twist is also making a comeback, as brides return to more elegant hairstyles after several years of messy ‘dos. One of the great things about a French twist is that it does not require long hair like many other updos.
Medium length hair works just as well for this sophisticated style, as long as it is not too layered. Since your hair will be entirely off your shoulders, take the opportunity to showcase some really spectacular bridal jewelry, like long crystal drop earrings or a multi-strand pearl necklace. Tuck hairpins or a small spray of white feathers into the side of the twist to finish it perfectly.
Brides who wish to wear their hair down this winter should opt for a very smooth hairstyle. Large soft waves with a shiny finish (think Veronica Lake, minus the hair falling over one eye) are ideal.
A statement making jeweled headband is the ideal accessory for this hairdo. If you plan to wear a veil, consider a double headband because you can anchor the veil’s comb between the two bands for more security.
This youthful and radiant wedding hairstyle is lovely with a satin or taffeta ballgown or a more simple A-line gown with a touch of beading. The effect will be timeless and elegant – definitely a winning winter wedding hairstyle!
