Bridal Hair Extensions and Clip Bangs at Hair Extensions.com Every bride wants to look picture perfect on her wedding day, from the perfect wedding dress to the perfect wedding hairstyle. So, you've found your dress, which is no easy task! Now it's time to choose your wedding hairstyle. There are many factors to consider before choosing your wedding hair to ensure you make the right choice.


Bridal Hair with Bare Shoulders

When the style of your wedding dress exposes your bare shoulders, you have the most options for your wedding hair style. Whether your dress is strapless or has spaghetti straps, show off your neck and shoulders and wear your hair up in an elegant wedding updo. If an updo isn't your style, just let your hair down. Many modern brides are doing it! Your cascading hair will not compete with your wedding dress. Bare shoulder dresses look good with just about any bridal hairstyle, such as an updo, a side-swept ponytail, chignon, half up half down, all down, plus any variations of these hairstyles.


Bridal Hair with a Simple Wedding Dress

If your dress is a simple fabric or not ornate, try dressing it up with a sophisticated, intricate updo. This will instantly glam up your look and keep you from looking too casual on your wedding day. You never want your bridesmaids or guests to out shine the bride. After all, this is your special day. Choosing the right hairstyle to suit your dress will ensure your wedding ring is not the only thing that sparkles on your wedding day! These days, getting an elaborate updo doesn't mean you will spend hours at the salon. Try wearing an easy, Do-It-Yourself hairpiece to achieve the look. This will save you time and money. Plus, you don't have to worry about your hair falling or loosing its shape.


Bridal Hair for a Destination Wedding

Of course, there is always an exception to this rule – the destination wedding. If you are getting married on a tropical island, a simple, easy to manage hairstyle will compliment your simple wedding look. The most popular hairstyle for a seaside wedding on the beach is a side swept ponytail or long wavy hair, worn down or half up, half down. You can achieve this relaxed, romantic look with hair extensions. 


Bridal Hair with an Elaborate Wedding Dress

If your dress has very elaborate embellishments, long sleeves, a high collar, jacket, wrap or cape, try a simple hairdo to avoid looking over-the-top on your special day. Remember, less is more when choosing the perfect hairstyle to compliment your dress. With an elaborate dress, it is best to keep the hair sleek and pulled into a chic updo. You have many different choices of hairpieces to create a simple, elegant updo in just minutes.


We hope this helps you find the perfect 'down the aisle style' for your big day!
