When it comes to attending a wedding, the right hairstyle can elevate your look and leave you feeling fantastic. We’ve got just the expert to guide you through choosing the perfect hairstyle for your hair type and face shape. Linda Miller, a seasoned hairstylist, shares her wisdom to help you put your best look forward.

Matching Your Hair Type and Style with the Occasion

Linda Miller advises, “The best way to choose your wedding guest hairstyle is to match it with your hair type and the occasion.” If your hair is thick, wavy, and long, she recommends a casual braid or low bun. For thick, straight hair, a sleek ponytail or a half-up, half-down style works well. For thin, straight hair, a high ponytail or a top bun can add volume. Fine, curly hair suits a curly updo, while thick, curly hair can rock a half-up, half-down style.

Flattering Your Face Shape with the Right Hairstyle

When it comes to the occasion, Linda advises that “a low bun or braid is perfect for an outdoor wedding, while a sleek ponytail or top bun works for a formal indoor wedding.” She also suggests taking your outfit into consideration. If your dress has a high neckline, a low hairstyle complements it well. For a low neckline, a high hairstyle is more suitable.
