When deciding how to wear your hair on the big day, there are a few things to consider. If you're used to straight styles, tumbling curls may drop out by the first dance. If you're prone to frizzy locks, choosing a sleek style may not last the day either. Go with something that isn't a million miles away from your usual style...you want the groom to recognise you walking down the aisle after all!
Add a feminine touch to your style by placing flowers in your hair. Just make sure you compliment your bouquet and tie in with your colour theme to avoid a clashing disaster. From floral tiaras to single flowers in a bun, there are plenty of styles to suit every bride.
Add a touch of glamour to your look with a slicked back hairstyle. Secure your locks with an elegant diamant√© slide to add a little sparkle, and use plenty of spray to keep everything in place. This is a great look with bold lipstick and a fitted lace dress.

Soft, tumbling curls are a popular choice for brides. Use a pretty grip to keep hair off your face and use an anti-frizz spray to keep bad hair at bay through to sunset. If your hair is naturally curly, blow dry it straight then use a curling tongue anyway to create beautifully defined curls.
Add some drama to hair up by back-combing and creating height at the back. This is also ideal if you're wearing a veil, as you can grip the slide here. It doesn't have to be Amy Winehouse-esque if that style isn't for you, just a little volume will spruce up a hair-up look.
The Side Sweep
The problem with tying your hair back, is that from the front, some of us (including myself) look like a cross between Wednesday Addams and a boy. Create a pretty front profile by forming a centre parting and sweeping the hair into a side bun, leaving a loose fringe.
