It’s not only the bride who wants to look perfect on her big day. Whether you are a bridesmaid, mother of the bride or a regular guest then a wedding calls for something a little bit special on the hair front. Depending on the length of your hair and the look you are trying to achieve there are numerous options to choose from. Here we’ve selected some of our favourite hairstyles for the wedding guest and thrown a few must-have accessories into the mix.
If you’ve been invited to a formal do then you need to choose a hairstyle that matches. Your hair should look glamorous, sleek and coiffed. Hair swept to one side works beautifully and allows your glamourous jewels – real or costume – to be shown off to their best effect! www.freshairuk.com
If your wedding invite states a casual theme then it’s time to start having a bit of fun with your hair. Messy chic is a fun look to experiment with and the best part is you don’t have to worry about it looking perfect. Loose curls work fantastically for casual nuptials but whatever you choose have fun experimenting. www.short-
These days you are just as likely to find yourself enjoying a wedding ceremony on a beautiful sandy beach as you are in a church. If the lapping sea rather than a church organ is your background accompaniment then it’s time to really let your hair down. Beach waves are a perennial favourite and as such will look fantastic in the photos for years to come. A tropical flower adds the finishing touch to all beach styles – long and short. www.hairstyleholic.com
