Bridal hairstyles, we give you the updo's and low downs on bridal hair.

You have the dress, bought the shoes and have been growing your hair for a year! Now you have the hardest decision to make, which hairstyle is right for you...
When you are getting married at home, you can pop along to your normal stylist and play with styles but when you are having a destination wedding in Italy it is a totally different ball game.  So here are my top tips on getting your perfect bridal hair for your wedding in Italy.

 Hair trial: Trust your planner to book a stylist who will be able to create stunning styles for you and your bridesmaids. However even with all the trust in the world, you need to have a hair trial. Today I had a hair trial with a beautiful bride who is getting married this weekend. We arrived at 10:30 and 2 hours later we had the final hair style totally pinned down, but it took a lot of work to create a style that worked well with the brides face and style. 

Season: Remember here in Italy your hair can react in many different ways depending on the season. In the summer months it can be very hot and humid. If the weather is forecasted to be hot then I would put your hair up! 

Collect ideas: I always ask my brides to send over a photo of their hair and photos or a pinterest board with styles that they like. After a while you will see a pattern emerging and that will give your stylist a head start! 

Play: Understand your hair. If you are planning on leaving your hair down, play with the style, know how your hair will react and remember the weather! 
Shape: Take your dress style in to consideration when thinking about the shape of your hairstyle. Work with your face shape and if in the trial you are not happy, do not hesitate to start all over again as many times as it takes to get it right! 

Dress up: Bring your veil with you to your hair trial so you can play and see what the final effect will be. Always take lots of photos so you can see what the style looks like from all angles.
