eighties hair

Eighties Hair inspired by The Wedding Singer

There are lots of aspects of your wedding to consider when planning, including what type of music you are going to choose – will you go for a band? A DJ? Karaoke? Or why not a wedding singer? Maybe you can decide by watching Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in the romantic comedy set in the eighties called The Wedding Singer – you may have seen it, but it is a fun one to watch on  a girls’ night in – so get your bridesmaids over and be inspired…

Now, I’m all about hair, as you know, so when I watch any movie or TV, I am still always looking at the hair and thinking about the hair… and this particular movie made me think of the style above. It is perfect for anyone who still loves the eighties vibe, the attire and the hair and makeup – but it is not overkill, because going for any retro look, particularly eighties, it has to be done the right way – with subtly or it can look dated… This rocky retro up-do is slightly Madonna-circa-nineteen-eighties edge; it shows off the elegant neck and shoulders area if worn with a strapless dress, and paired with a bit of lace and diamante, the look is perfected. I’d recommend makeup that is in-keeping with the look, but again don’t go over the top – maybe add a bit of sheen, high cheek bones, glitter, or colour. This is a great style for anybody who loved the eighties the first time round, or loves the injection of eighties styles in the noughties… it adds a funky edge to the bride and is perfect if you have a groovy reception planned.

Hair suggestions for a square neckline…

Firstly make sure your hairdresser takes into consideration your face shape and silhouette shape of your hairstyle, as well as the line of your necklace or dress. You want your hairstyle to set off your best features!

I personally would definitely go for a hair-up style with a square neckline dress, as wearing your hair down (if long) may look too crowded around your shoulders.

Wearing your hair up will elongate your neckline and and create height, which is definitely needed for a square neck line.

With a structured dress I quite like to see more structured hairstyles so a nice clean chignon, high pony or bun would be lovely. I personally think french pleats with a beehive sets off square neckline really well – It gives that sexy 60’s feel about it!
