TOUSLED TRESSES: Wedding Hair and Tips

Soft, natural, tousled tresses are in! Check out these looks and tips for your wedding hairstyle for your big day.

Taylor Swift's people have managed to perfect the tousled and curled up-do.
Such a soft and simple looking style. 
This wavy, Monroe inspired look makes me want to cut off all my hair!
This looks a little more polished than some of the others,
but it's still soft and sweet, especially when paired with a pinky-coral blush.  
The low, side ponytail is probably the most popular wedding hairstyle
this season, and for good reason. With or without the pin, it's lovely.
Also a great reason to add extensions or a fall of hair if you need an excuse!
This messy up-do is the new direction in wedding style.
It's so pretty and a great update to the extreme look of the french twist. 
Another messy 'do, parted down the center for a more casual look
for a laid back bride and groom. 

A few tips and tricks... 

1. Keep the hairspray light... more is not necessarily better. You don't want your hair looking weighed down or dull in your wedding photos!

2. Make sure you choose the right foundation for your skin... and test it in natural light! Nothing is worse than an orange face and pale neck in the sun. 

3. Keep the shimmer you put on your cheeks light. Otherwise you'll look oily and wet. 

4. Don't make any changes to your routine (moisturizer, laundry detergent, birth control, etc) 6-8 weeks before your wedding. You don't want to have any weirdo reactions to anything! 

5. While some people swear by it, stay away from airbrushed makeup. If one little tear rolls down your face on your big day, you'll have a streak the rest of the night. It's not fixable unless they take it all off and start over! 

6. Consider getting your nails and eyebrows done at least 2 days before the wedding... therefore if there are any mistakes you'll have time to fix them, and there won't be any redness from the wax.
