This task can be very confusing so I will try to give you good pointers to help steer you in the right direction.

First thing to decide is whether you want your hair up or down.

Secondly, do you like things more plain or more glamorous? Brides that like to have things more plain and "safe" feel more comfortable in lower, more simple, not too detailed type of wedding hairstyle. If glamor on the other hand is something you're going for then you may want a higher, fuller, curlier and bigger type of bridal updo.

Thirdly, be sure to get a hairstyle that compliments your facial structure. That means, if you have a small or big forehead, try sweeping your bangs across your forehead. If you have a square jaw line, try leaving some hair swirls or loose pieces around your face to soften the strong lines. If you have a long lean face, an updo will only elongate your face even more. In this case, consider a "half up, half down" hairstyle.

Lastly, pick a hairstyle that will also compliment your bridal gown. Here are some examples.

- A Princess Ball gown will look best with a bigger and higher updo

-A heavily decorated and beaded gown will look best with curls and random curls everywhere

-A Vintage gown looks best with finger waves and thick curls

-A Strapless gown will look best with some hair down

-A Halter top gown will look best with the hair up and off the shoulders

Tips for your bridal hairstyle trial :

1-Wear a white shirt

2-Bring your veil and any bridal hair jewelry if you already have them

3-Bring pictures of wedding looks that you like

4-Have clean dry hair

5-Wear makeup or have it applied afterwards

6-If you bring someone with you, make sure it's someone who thinks like you and knows what you like

7-Bring your camera

8-Be honest about what you think (this is not the time for your stylist to guess at what you're thinking)

Wedding Hairstyle Tips:

-Hairstyles are divided into front and back.

-The front can be parted or straight back and add volume. The back can be high, medium or low and intricate or simple and big or small. If you see something you like, do not disregard it because you do not like part of the hairstyle. Let your hairstylist know which part you like of each hairstyles.

-Hair can be manipulated to look thicker and longer. Hair extensions could be useful, but not always necessary.

-If you are going to add hair extensions, they must be real human hair. Synthetic hair does not have styling abilities.

-If you want to add fullness to your hairstyle and you feel like your hair is too thin to provide that fullness, flowers are a perfect solution to fill in the gaps.
