Apart from the obvious importance of the right wedding dress, color theme and makeup is, of course, your wedding hairstyle!

Because your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event (usually), brides want everything to be perfect and that includes their hair. It's an opportunity for others to see you like they never have before - to embrace your beauty and to glow like the brightest star in the sky!

If your natural hair is not the length or thickness it needs to be due to hair damage or just naturally being short or thin, then you can dramatically change your look on your wedding day to gain the volume, length or highlights you want for this special occasion.

Using clip-on hair extensions are not only to lengthen the hair. Many women have shorter hair that is gorgeous, but may need to increase volume or thickness for a particular style they want for their wedding day.

When choosing a wedding hairstyle, there are some important elements that should be taken into consideration.

Tips to Figuring Out Your Wedding Hairstyle

When choosing a wedding hairstyle for this joyous occasion, use this tips to guide you in the right direction

  • Your wedding dress.

Your wedding dress is very important and therefore should complement your hair, or vice versa. If your dress is simple, then you may want to highlight your look with a dramatic hairstyle. Alternatively, if your dress is very elaborate and detailed then you may choose to go with a simpler look for your hair. Bun-styles and other up-do's look great with any wedding dress and are a fitting choice when you want your dress to really stand out, but need an appropriate hairstyle to match.

  • Your wedding hair accessories.

If you choose to accent your hair with wedding hair accessories then it's important to know ahead of time what type of hairstyle you will wear on that day. Experiment way ahead of the wedding with different styles and how you want to place any hair accessories. Wedding hair accessories can be very elaborate or simple and can range from flowers, tiaras and hair pins to ribbons and beautifully decorated hair combs. Whichever you choose, make sure the accessory fits with your hair style and your dress as well for a complete look.

  • Your wedding veil.

Choosing to wear a wedding veil is a personal choice, but should you wear one, then display a hairstyle that fits with the veil. Wedding veils come in different lengths and styles, so decide whether showing off your hairstyle is more important to you than wearing a veil on your big day.

  • Your hair color.

Some women may choose to color their hair before a wedding or to add highlights. Either one is perfectly acceptable and can bring out colors in a dress, accent your eyes or even makeup. Clip-on extensions are great for adding highlights to your hair because they are made with real human hair and can be dyed to the color or colors of your choosing.

Using Clip-on Hair Extension for Your Wedding Hairstyle

Clip-on extensions can be a great way to dress up your hair on your wedding day! They are so versatile and last a very long time. Hair extensions made with real human hair work best if you intend to do any cutting, coloring, apply heat or blow dry your hair.

The other fabulous tip about clip-on hair extensions is that they can add volume to hair where you need it, can dramatically change the look of your hair with highlights and make it easy to change looks quickly such as when changing from your wedding gown to a reception outfit.
