While it may seem trendy, changing out of your wedding dress into a second outfit for your wedding reception isn’t a new concept. In fact, brides have been doing wardrobe changes for almost a century. But, why not kick it up a notch by changing your hairstyle too!
Often, wedding day style teams offer to have someone stick around for touch-ups and more. So instead of a simple touch up to your eyeliner and powder, consider having them restyle your hair before the reception.
Below are 3 hairstyle transitions to inspire your wedding day look this year.
Half-up, half-down hairstyles are perfect for the Rocky Mountain Bride.
From a casual mountain elopement to a formal black-tie wedding, half-up, half-down hairstyles are flattering on every bride. Not to mention, they’re extremely versatile. With the addition of a sparkly hair comb, you can take this style up a few notches as seen in the photo above. Or, pin in a few flowers from your floral selection to create a more natural look.
For a subtle transition, have your stylist remove the hairpins. Let it down for a more relaxed and fun look on the dance floor!
This is a transition that could easily be done yourself if you don’t have the budget to have your stylist stick around.
Romantic, wavy locks are simple and elegant!
With a few bobby pins, a sparkly hair comb, and some hairspray, you can transition your hair into a sleek party bun. This is perfect for the bride that wants to look flawless while getting down on the dance floor.
