As a former bride who was dealt “the fine thin” hair card at birth, I speak today from not only a professional perspective but a personal perspective. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to how you should wear your hair on your wedding day but if you suffer from fine thin hair, here are some things to consider when deciding which bridal hair style will work for you.
- On your wedding day think low maintenance. I tell this to all my brides but in particular to those brides with fine thin hair. OK, ladies…you know how it is when you’re having a bad hair day? Well, think about your wedding day and the amount of time you may actually have to keep ‘primping’ and/or fixing up your hair throughout the day. Your time is going to be limited. You need a hairstyle that is stress free and completely maintenance free so you can go about enjoying your day and worry less about your hair.
- If you have fine thin hair and you’re able to put it up, do it! If you only feel comfortable with some or part of your hair up, do that. Do whatever it takes to keep your hair off your neck and/or face. Keep searching and trying new styles until you find the one that makes you happy.
- Just because you have fine thin hair it doesn’t mean you can’t have a full gorgeous looking elegant updo. This is when you need a very talented (thinking outside the box) kind of hairstylist on your team. Speak with your hairstylist about adding pieces into your hair such as homemade or store bought hair rats to create a more full and glamorous look.
- Add hair accessories into your bridal hairstyle to create the illusion you have more hair than you actually do. A gorgeous hair accessory can hide many things including areas of your hair that might look less than full!
- If you have very thin areas of your hair where your scalp is exposed think about adding some hair powder/filler into your area of concern. This really helps to give the illusion that your hair is thicker in an area where there may be very little actual hair.
