So Many Weddings, So Much Wedding Inspiration for Philly Brides

October 27, 2016
The stylists at Crimson Hair Studio love hosting wedding events at the salon!  If you are prepping for your perfect day, here is inspiration & advice for our brides-to-be.  One of the exciting things about wearing that white dress is it is a blank palette for you to design whatever look best suits your (and your nervous fiancee’s) wedding style.  Soft and romantic is just as perfect as bold if that is what fits your personal style.

Owner of Crimson Hair Studio and Master Stylist Jen:  

I love anything old Hollywood inspired for weddings.  You always want to search for a classic look when choosing for a bridal hairstyle.  Trendy updos and styles (like teased 80’s bangs) may be a regret in years to come; remember you will look at these photos for decades, and the more timeless the style, the happier you will be for the future.
Hair accessories like combs, veils, appliqués, and pins add the perfect accent to a simple style.

Francesca: I love a bridal look that is soft and swept, but of course secure enough to hold up on the dance floor! This bride’s hair was the perfect texture and length for this look.

Becky: Leading up to the wedding, it is helpful for brides to find pictures of inspiration and be open to suggestions that would be best for their hair type and texture. A common misconception is that brides have to grow their hair out to a ridiculous length when wearing their hair up or down for their wedding. For an updo, hair should be at least shoulder length. If it isn’t, no problem! Extensions are always a solution to provide length or even fullness.

Another suggestion for brides is to consider color to give them dimension. Hair color with dimension will show hair style detail better than a solid hair color.

Here is an example of similar styles, one with dimensional color one without:

Jeanne: The fun thing about weddings is that no two brides are the same! Once you decide on your venue and overall look, the dress, hairstyle, accessories should mirror the decor, while letting your personality shine through in minor details. Whether you choose rustic in a barn with a simple dress and flowing locks, or a country club wedding with a classic feeling and a structured updo, it’s fun to put the pieces together and make your perfect day. Between etsy, Pinterest, Wedding Wire, and The Knot, there are many resources for brides to create an awesome party.

Don’t stress or compare yourself to others, make sure your own personality shines through, and don’t forget to have fun!
