Finding the Perfect “Up Do” for You

Finding the Perfect “Up Do” for You

This search can be hard, so I suggest you find the perfect dress first and then find a hairstyle that compliments you and your dress.


The best way to find a formal hairstyle is to look in hair magazines or fashion magazines.

When it comes to formal hairstyles or updos, simple is better. This year, sleek and classic styles are making a huge comeback.


A simple hairstyle will show off your gorgeous dress and beautiful face. Best of all, it wonÂ’t make you look overdone.

My favorite look of the season is the classic ponytail. A low, sleek ponytail looks great on everyone and looks great with any outfit.042307UPDO2.jpg


For a younger and fresher look, you can wear a low side ponytail with a full crown and curled ends. This look works well with the fun patterned and brightly colored dresses that are popular this season.

Another look that I think looks great is long loose waves. This look is a throwback to the old glamor days of Hollywood.


Wearing "down do" hairstyle that sweeps the shoulders looks especially great with strapless or spaghetti strap dresses. Wearing your hair down can make you feel as if you are not showing as much skin especially when you are wearing a dress with little or no straps.
If you have short hair and you are looking for a special style, think about Marilyn Monroe when you are picking out a hairstyle. Curl your hair all over and use your hands to loosen the curls for a very sexy look.


If you have short hair and want to go for a more sophisticated style, you can also comb all of your hair away from your face.

When choosing a hairstyle for the big day, you should always consider these three things:

  1. Will my hair texture work with this style?
  2. Will this style overpower my face or my outfit?
  3. Do I love this hairstyle?

In the end, all that matters is that you love your hair and it makes you look and feel your best.
