veils

We’re kicking off the new year with a new feature: a swoon-worthy wedding image each Friday! This week’s bride wears Olia Zavozina‘s ‘Ebie,’ a silk charmeuse and Alençon lace ball gown, with a cathedral-length, embroidered-edge veil by Wedding Belles New York.

If you have your wedding dress, shoes and jewelry, what’s next for your big day look? Your hairstyle! So what’s it going to be…up, down, half up? Veil, fascinator, pins, clips, headband? We’ve got you covered with the ideas in our bridal hair lookbook.

Here, take a peek behind the scenes of the lookbook photo shoot to see the creation of these hair and accessory pairings. And read below for some important do’s and don’ts for creating wedding-worthy hair!

DO pair the right hairstyle with your dress style. Think about what will be around your shoulders–dress neckline or straps, jewelry, veil–and wear your hair up or down accordingly.

Don’t wait until the wedding day to perfect your style! Work with your stylist or practice on your own long before the wedding day. It’s one less thing to worry about and leaves more time to sip champagne and relax with your girls!

DO plan to freshen up your cut and color about two weeks before the wedding. But don’t make any drastic changes–there may not be time to fix it if something goes wrong.

Don’t forgot to bring touch-up products (hair spray, bobby pins and a brush) so you can make adjustments if needed throughout the night.

DO work with a wedding stylist to find the perfect hair accessories. Our stylists are happy to help with even the smallest details, and they have great advice after working with hundreds of brides!
