Hairstyles for the bride or bride to be can be a tricky thing to decide upon. The absolute first thing that needs to be taken in to consideration is the dress and the brides train. That is because you certainly do not want to settle early on a hair style only to find that it is going to be in competition with the bridal ensemble that she is wearing on that day.
Her hair should compliment and not detract from the overall look of the gown that she is wearing. The bride’s maid’s styles also need to be taken into account because you don’t want the bride to be overshadowed by the hair of her female assistants.
That being said, there is no reason that any particular hairstyle should be eliminated or resisted. In today’s world, there is no reason that a bride can not wear her hair long and straight if she desires. It is all about matching the bride with her personality and the dress. Some of the stiff rules that used to apply and dictate that the brides hairdo needed to be tight and worn up have pretty much gone by the wayside.
In fact if anything, longer hair is more likely to be worn down these days by the bride than it is to be worn up. It has become more socially acceptable to let the bride be herself and show off her attractive hair.
Many brides opt for a longer style that adds some waves to add interest and body while some still lean towards the more traditional styles. You will not often see a bride wearing an emo style unless she is leaning towards a Goth theme but other than that, it is pretty much wide open when it comes to what the bride wants.
