What wedding hairstyle, should you chose? Is it romantic, classic, regal or natural?
Wedding Hairstyle Retro Regal
Is it your dream to be the queen of the day? Nothing is more regal than a smooth, sleek hairdo, topped off with a retro tiara. This wedding hairstyle captures the quintessential look of elegance.This hairstyle can be achieved on all hair types. If you hair is curly or wavy it would need to be blown out and flat ironed before the styling begins. The hair should be several inches below the shoulder. If it is shorter, but still long enough to pull up in small ponytail, use a hairpiece to create the hairdo. Comb your hair into a high, sleek ponytail. Roll the ponytail under and pin. Leave a small section of the ponytail to use wrapping along the bottom of the bun. This helps to hide the hair pins and create a smooth, finished look. Place hair padding at the base of the ponytail, then comb the ponytail over the padding, before pinning the ponytail into place. A small retro crystal tiara compliments the hairstyle without competing with it. A hair comb placed in the back of the ponytail is another elegant option. Wear red lips make-up to add a little drama to the retro regal hairstyle.
Wedding Hairstyle Garden Party
If you're planning a wonderful afternoon garden wedding, your hairstyle may be more relaxed and casual than at a formal wedding. Loose tussled hair, pulled back softly with a sparkling comb, creates a fresh, wholesome wedding hairstyle. This wedding hairstyle can be achieved with almost all hair types. Curly hair works best though, because the curl holds longer. Shoulder length hair or longer is the best. If your hair is straight, be sure to use a heavy holding hair spray for long lasting curls. Use a medium and a large curling iron to create natural looking, soft romantic curls.To create fullness at the crown of the head, tease the hair and then smooth over the teased crown to create volume.
Finally, take two side sections of hair, pull them back and secure with a comb or barrette. For thin hair add a bit of hair padding to create extra volume at the crown of the head. A hairpiece may also be used to add fullness to the ends. A tiara at the crown would also work well. Also consider a hair comb placed on the side, just above the ear. Your make-up should look soft and romantic. Roses add a romantic touch to a garden. Wedding make-up in the shades of roses gives a fresh glow to a perfect afternoon ceremony amidst a fairy-tale garden.

Softly twist the sides of the hair and pin toward the back of the head. If your bangs are long enough, include them in the twists.
Finally, take the loose ends at the back of the head and pin in different directions to form a softly curled "chignon" or bun.
After slightly twisting a section, put hair spray before pinning. This helps to keep the definition of each twisted curl. A pearl comb tucked above the curls will add to this wedding hairstyle. Hair pins scattered throughout the curls will also be impeccable. A veil could be placed in the back of the head, under the curls. A headpiece and veil at the crown could also work, although you won't see much of the hairstyle. Fair skin, enhanced with warm, peachy tones, equals a camera-ready wedding make-up.
