6 Quick Tips for Choosing the Hairstyles of Your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

The hair is the crowning glory. These short to long strands are so powerful that a change can affect someone’s self-esteem, cause people to assume what happened, and so many more.

But more than that, the hair, when styled, can improve your physical appearance. Similar to how bridesmaids and groomsmen get their hairstyles done during weddings.

Here are some tips when choosing hairstyles for your entourage. 

Check The Wedding Venue

An outdoor venue will affect your hairstyle decisions. You wouldn’t want your hair flying all over the place while on top of the mountain. You don’t want your face eating all the excess hair while exchanging vows in the countryside. You will benefit more from well-kept hair while having your reception by the beach. Your sleek groom hairstyle will not look good if leaves and sand suddenly fly on it.

Check The Weather or The Season

Though the weather is unpredictable, it will ease all the planning, hesitations, and anxiety if you consider this in your planning. You might have noticed before how your hair gets affected by the weather. Your hair becomes dryer than usual in summer or winter. Oil and product residue might easily slip from your hair on rainy days.

Know What You Want for Yourselves First

Now that you have identified the external factors and conditions, it’s time to proceed to the talk on hair properly.

But, before you invest your time and emotions in other else’s hairstyles, channel all your energy first to yourselves. Decide how you want to look on your big day. As the bride, check inspirations and consult experts to see what hairstyle suits you best. Is it going to be an updo or not? Will you wear hair accessories or not? Is there a need for a trim? The same for the groom. Even if your hair is pretty much easier to manage, you can use some pieces of advice. You might even get a new hairstyle that you will like. You also consider if you want to wax or use styling gel.

Choosing the Hairstyles of Your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

Check Your Budget

Just because you want something to happen at your wedding doesn’t mean you can immediately do it. The reality is always there that almost every step of wedding planning involves money. Check your budget to see if there will be enough for the hairstyles of the bridesmaids and groomsmen.

If there will be, then do the next step.

Talk To Your Entourage

Open the idea to your bridesmaids and groomsmen about you choosing their hairstyles, hair accessories, and hair products. Discuss with them the possibility of having a uniform or specific look for hairstyle. Consider their thoughts if they are comfortable with your idea.

Celebrate Their Uniqueness

In as much as a uniform look will look great, especially for the bridesmaids, there will be a greater chance that one hairstyle will not suit everyone.

The factors of face shape, body shape, body size, and comfort will come into play.

Some of the groomsmen may be bald. And wearing a hair replacement might be a welcomed idea.

If coloring the hair is an idea you are proposing, keep in mind their health conditions and skin undertone.

Whether your bridesmaids and groomsmen are okay with the same hairstyle or not, make sure that whatever you decide will highlight the assets and confidence of everyone.
