Choose a timeless style that will make you feel like the best version of you on your son or daughter’s wedding day.
This weekend is Mother’s Day: a day to celebrate what our mums do for us each and every day of the year, and what they mean to us.
Just as your wedding day is the most special day in your life, it may well just be the same for your mum! When she’s watching the son or daughter she loves so dear marrying the love of their life, it’s surely a day of celebration and emotion for every mum.
Therefore, of course, this week’s The Beauty Bible is dedicated to our wonderful Mothers of the Bride and Mothers of the Groom, who we know want to look their very best for their son or daughter’s special day. It’s important that you feel like your best version of yourself, comfortable with a beauty style that suits you and your personality.
You may have a beautiful dress in mind, and have chosen a favourite lipstick, but have you thought about what to do with your hair? You’ll be looking for a style that feels like ‘you’, with added glamour, that doesn’t upstage the bride herself – so it can be tricky to know where to start! Don’t worry, we’re here to help. Let’s take a look at some of the most elegant Mother of the Bride/Groom hairstyles for that special day.
(Don’t forget to say ‘Hello’ to our incredible hair artists on The Wedding Affair’s Approved Supplier List. They’re simply the finest around.)
Go glamorous with a sophisticated up-do. Whatever the day throws at you – from windy weather to a warm dance floor – a carefully styled up-do should stay neatly in place all day long. Choose a chignon bun, perhaps with added detail in the form of a delicate hair adornment to add a little extra glamour. It’s a timeless classic.
Ideal for summer weddings, this style exudes effortless glamour. Loose curls will give you the added elegance without looking ‘over done’. You’ll look beautifully styled yet not overbearing, with curls that transcend all ages: perfect! Pull the curls a little looser if your hair is shorter and you’re wanting to avoid the permed look.
Swept-Back and Sophisticated
Heart set on a beautiful headpiece, such as a statement hat or a bespoke fascinator? You need a simple style that will let your headpiece do the talking! An elegant, swept back look won’t interfere, yet will still look sophisticated if you forgo the hat for dancing the night away. Just make sure you take your headpiece along to your hair appointment so your stylist knows what they’ll be working with on the big day.
Choppy and Textured
Fine and flat hair? Can’t quite get it up into a bun? Won’t hold a curl, and hate the thought of hat? Don’t despair – why not try a choppy, textured style? Visit your hairdresser in advance of the big day and ask for layers that frame your face, add texture and give your hair added volume. On the big day, a little styling and a dollop of moose may be all you need for timeless glamour. One less thing to worry about!
