Summer Hair Trends

The warmer months can present a challenging time for your tresses. Added heat and moisture can turn your beautiful bridal do upside down if care and planning is not implemented. We've isolated the commonest hair-related concerns that many worry about, along with remedies for avoiding/ fixing these flywaway situations! 

Sun Damage

The problem: Most people know about the importance of using SPF on your skin, but what about HPF (Hair Protection Factor)? UV rays are as damaging to the scalp as they are to the skin and can leave your hair completely dehydrated and lacklustre.

The solution: Protect your hair and scalp now with a simple spray-on product or leave-in conditioner that will protect your tresses from the rays.

Fighting Frizz and Fly-aways

The problem:  Whether hair is straight or curly, it might be hard to style in the summer because of all that humidity. Many brides-to-be are faced with daily frizz, and fly-aways. It’s best to not fight with your hair, but instead treat it with love and care.

The solution: Smoothing conditioners will seal the hair cuticle and prepare it for styling, while smoothing serums will tame stubborn fly-aways. There is no point in piling on product that will leave your hair oily and limp. Less is more is key for maintaining your style throughout the day, and a little hairspray will be sure to keep your tresses in place.

Long vs Short Hair

It’s an all too common occurrence that brides-to-be desire a change, and more often than not, resort to the chop without considering the consequences. Depending on the length of your hair, possibilities can be endless, as long as you decide on a wedding hair stylist well in advance of your big day. Scheduling a series of hair trials so that you’re comfortable and confident that your hairdresser will ensure that you create the wedding hair of your dreams!

A pixie cut can look amazing with proper styling and treatment. If you’re after a quick-fix of longer hair for your big day, then consult an experienced hair stylist in hair extensions. The last thing you want are extensions that don’t match your hair colour and type. If you are confused as to whether you should have hair up or down and have the long tresses to work with, consult your stylist and bring photos of your dress, veil and hair accessories so that your hair will compliment your style.

Be sure to check out our wedding hair stylists in your state and book in a consultation well in advance for peace of mind before your wedding day.We also have list of wedding accessories suppliers on Bride Online to make your wedding day hair look more gorgeous.

Hair Accessories

Depending on your hair length, hair accessories can add a touch of style and sophistication to your overall look. Some brides long after wearing a veil and complete the look with a hair comb or tiara.

If a veil is not your thing, and you are after a 1940s wave or long cascading locks, the addition of a fascinator, diamante encrusted headband or hairpins will complete your look. Once again, be sure to take your hair accessories to your hair trials so ensure that you’re happy with the overall hairstyle.
