Top Hairstyles For A California Wedding
It’s no secret that California is a popular destination spot for weddings. Endless sunshine, a temperate 70 degrees, 365 days a year, and a laid-back vibe that instantly makes you feel chill. Yeah California is the place to be.
We get a lot of inquiries from local brides, but also brides coming to California as a destination wedding. Being that we personalize each and every event based on the experience the bride is looking for, hair is one of these personalized elements. Though, there are some recurring themes amongst the California brides.
Top Requested Hairstyles
Down with Curls
It’s such a simple request, but can be so chic and timeless on a bride. There is so much variation with this too; thick curls, loose curls, beachy waves, etc. All of the brides that have requested this style, know exactly what they want and it is a true reflection of their style.
Tip: If you are wanting beachy waves, alternate the direction in which you curl pieces. Once done, run your fingers through it messily, and if it looks a little undone, this is perfect. Ultimate beach babe.
Another popular request is an updo, but not a structured updo. These brides are wanting an updo to keep their hair out of their face, but they still want that California vibe, so think loose tendrils in the front and some piecey sections in the back. Some of the ones our stylists have done have a wrapped bun, with some pulled pieces at the bottom to make it look a little messy.
Some brides are really bold and want all of their hair in a braid (these are typically the very boho brides), but we have gotten lots of requests for braids to be incorporated somehow into the look. Whether it is hair done with curls and add a side braid or a loose bun with a side braid. Most brides this season want some accent piece in their hair and the braid is that accent piece.
Tip: If you want a really full braid, like some of the ones you see on Pinterest, consider getting some clip in extensions. These will add fullness to your hair if you don’t naturally have a lot of volume or length.
When coming to California, our brides want a little bit of that California vibe as well, and the easiest way to do that is with their hair. Makeup, well that’s another topic.
