There are many fantastic perks to being a winter bride, obviously brides are still going to be praying for either snow or sunshine, whichever you are hoping for.
It is a given that every single bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day and whilst some may argue that winter hairstyles do not differ that much from those in other seasons there are some things you really ought to consider for winter wedding hairstyles. Here are my top tips:

Happy Christmas ALL…
The Internet and magazines are full of inspirational images for Summer festival brides, and Spring brides and Autumn time brides, but what about Winter wonderland brides? December is a beautiful time to wed, and January is ideal, because it is quiet and whilst February is still very chilly, Valentine’s is sure to add a loving glow to your wedding day.
In the UK we are always worried about the sun not shining for our big day and the outdoor photos not being a wash out, but opting for a Christmas wedding means you have the best of whatever weather comes… If it snows, it is a bonus; if it is bright blue skies with sunshine, then the contrast looks beautiful with bare trees and seasonal flowers.
So with the weather not an issue, you can focus a lot of your attention on what hairstyle to choose.
Most brides this time of the year will probably wear a lovely furry snug or soft shawl, and this is a good idea to keep the chill off them whilst walking down the isle and having their pictures taken.
If you are planning on wearing a shawl you must take into consideration your hairstyle first. For example, if you decide to wear a low side bun or back bun, then the chosen cover-up garment may cause stress on your hairstyle. If the bun is too low, the bottom of the bun may rub against your shawl then your hairstyle may become weak and fall out. So always make sure your hairdresser is aware of everything you plan to wear, as it may be worth opting for an alternative hairstyle, or catering for the extra clothing… So you could still wear a bun to the side or back, but instead of it being a low do, it can be a bun set more central.
For those of brides opting for beautiful lace sleeved dresses. I would recommend having your hair up. Most of the time these types of dresses may have many buttons at the back, which you would hate for your hair to get tangled on! Also you don’t want to hide any intricate detailing of the dress! You could opt for hair to be swept to the side if you feel uncomfortable with all of your hair up!
Brides choosing a high necked dress can try wearing the hair up as high as possible to create height this will elongate the neckline and make you feel tall and slender!
There are some beautiful crystal skull caps, mini top hats and bride cage veils available, so try adding a more elaborate head dress to your hairstyle keeping the jewellery simple, as you may find flowers are more limited this time of the year.
I am getting so festive it is crazy… just on the train to a corporate job, doing the hair of ten clients for their Christmas do at Kingsley Napley. Vicki x
I have shouted about this since Monday – I can’t believe it, I am so honoured to be the best bridal hairdresser for London and South East – wow… The Nationals was a fun night, and I wore signature black, my sleek bob and of course my supportive (not to mention gorgeous) husband on my arm… I literally am so grateful for my brides and all of my clients, it is so lovely to be recognised for some thing you do, especially when I love working with hair – this is all the cherry on the cake. Maybe it is this passion that shines through my work, who knows, but I promise that I will keep on learning new and wonderful ways with hair so that I can continue to deliver for all of my brides and clients… I know GUSH GUSH GUSH – but completely blown away – fab week.
I am so honoured to have won this prestigious award for the third year running… And I want to thank everybody that supported me. I had the best evening at the ceremony and was truly overwhelmed to receive the award for the best bridal hairdresser in Kent… Again! There was some great competition, and this makes it even more of an honour. Thanks again to all of my brides too that enable me to do the job I love day in day out.
