High temperatures and burning sun can kill the best hairstyles, and that doesn’t bode well for summer weddings. To keep your look perfect, choose a hairstyle that will look great in photographs and stay beautiful in spite of the heat.
Summer Wedding Hair
Fancy updos and intricate curls have a way of failing in summer heat. Long, straight styles have a tendency to frizz up in high temperatures. There are lots of wedding hairstyles you can’t wear in summer, but there are a few that will looking amazing all day. Choose the right hairstyles for your summer wedding to get (and keep) that perfect look.
Sleek buns: A sleek bun creates an elegant wedding look, and it’s easy to maintain even when the temperature soars. Dress it up with faux flowers, jewels and other embellishments if you like. To keep the style perfect, prep clean hair with a smooth gel while it’s still slightly damp.
Intricate braids: Braided hairstyles are especially popular right now, and they’re perfect for summer weddings. Braids have a way of staying in place even in the heat. Use anti-frizz serum on your hair to keep the braids sleek. Make the hairstyle look fancy by twining ribbon into the braids. This will instantly, easily, dress up the look.
Side sweep: Create a romantic summer wedding look with a side-swept ponytail or braid. You can add some curls or waves to the length, but keep the design loose. Curls and waves don’t hold up well in heat. Prep your hair with a lightweight mousse to keep the volume lasting longer.
Beach waves: Nothing says summer quite like loose beach waves. First, cover slightly damp hair with gel in a light, even coat. Use a straightening iron to create large waves in your hair. Spritz waves with hairspray and let them dry completely before lightly running your fingers through the waves to loosen them up.
Finish your perfect summer wedding hair with pretty clips and pins, but not fresh flowers. In summer’s heat the flowers will wilt and turn brown, and that’s not pretty in pictures. Stick to silk flowers if you’re adding floral embellishments.
Once your hair is styled and ready for the wedding, don’t touch it unless you have to. The less you touch your hair, the longer the style will last.
