Half Up Half Down Wedding Hair-Do - Tips to Bear in Mind

  The wedding day is one of the most beautiful days in any woman’s life – one that she plans for ever since she is a small girl. This is the one day when she feels the most beautiful, the most wanted, the most loved woman on earth. This is why everything that goes into the bride trousseau and make-up on that day needs to be perfect. That brings us to the hairdo of the bride.

This section discusses the half up half down wedding hairstyles which are very popular. Here are some great tips for the hair updo.

Wedding Hair Updos – Some Great Tips

There are many ways to dress up your hair at your wedding – it mostly depends on the type of wedding dress you are planning to wear. The hairdo needs to emphasize and highlight the dress. The wedding half updos are extremely elegant and work excellent with both high neck and low décolletage dresses.

Wedding half up half down hairdos are suitable for all types of faces and look fabulous and intimately sexy – just the right look for your wedding day. Looks wise it is one of the greatest – however there are downsides too. Here are some points to bear in mind:

Halfup Halfdown Hair - Important Tips to Bear in Mind

1. Slip ups – if the wedding half hair-up tends to slip, the whole bridal hairdo will turn shoddy and unbecoming. This is why the hair would need to be treated well in advance and you would need to run at-least one or two real hairdo rehearsals to see how the hair behaves over a given period of time.

2. Quality of hair for half up half down updos – thin hair needs to be treated differently from thick hair; also the texture of hair counts a lot while choosing a hairdo. The hairdresser would be able to advice you about the exact way to treat your hair – yet you would still need to run a few tests and see what needs to be done to have the hair behave in the best possible manner.

3. Using pins and accessories – there are many lovely style pins, butterfly, pearl and diamond clips that can add a lot of oomph to the hairdo. There are even lovely shining (glitter) hair gel which when used in the right way can give the hairdo a royal look. The decorative accessories need to be elegant, beautiful yet not too flashy or it would become too loud. These should be used in such a manner that the hairdo’s beauty would be enhanced.

4. Comfort Levels Half-up hairdos are usually easy to carry. However, you would need to keep in mind that you would have to wear the bridal hairdo for about 10 hours at a stretch – immediately after the wedding until the wedding dinner is over. Hence, you would need to know whether it is comfortable for you. In many cases when the hair is too tightly pinned you might get a headache. Hence, you need to find out whether you are able to carry the chosen hairdo for the whole period required, post wedding.

Handy Tip: Many women do not want to compromise their beauty for anything when it comes to the wedding day – and this extends to the hairdos as well. They feel that being a little uncomfortable would more than compensate the fact that you would look simply fabulous in those wedding photographs. For these women – here is some practical advice. Try and complete all the formal wedding photographs as soon as possible after the wedding. This should take about one or two hours. After this, either leave all the hair down or lift it up into an easy wedding updo which would not only be extra comfortable but also beautiful. In this way you can have the best of both worlds – have a wow hairdo at the wedding and still dazzle your guests and your groom with the second hairstyle for the rest of the day.

6. Have the hairstylist at the wedding – many wedding hairstylists would give you necessary instructions on how to manage your hairdo. However, the best thing would be to have the hair-stylist's assistant (or the hair stylist herself/ himself) at the wedding in case you are wearing a very elaborate wedding half up half down hair-do. In this manner, you would be able to handle any type of emergency – such as sudden sagging of the hair, slipping of pins, too much breeze or humidity (if the wedding party is outdoors) and so on.

Whatever you do, remember one thing – you need to be both beautiful and comfortable and indeed the wedding half up hairdos are a great way to achieve this goal. At the same time, in order to be one hundred percent successful you need to take a few precautions as well as follow the hairstylist instructions to the T. So goodluck with your half up half down wedding hairstyle and have a great wedding day!
