Brides often choose buns: this is a simple and comfortable hairstyle that can be both elegant and strict, as well as romantic and gentle. Oksana Sergeeva told us about the types of buns that are popular with girls for many wedding seasons.
How to choose a bun?
Buns differ from each other in height, shape, texture and technique. Buns can be smooth, careless, concise, voluminous, textured, asymmetrical, and weaving. When choosing a shape, you should be guided by your instincts and your hair stylist’s advice. The correct size, accents and light strands will help to frame the face if necessary.
Is a low or high bun better?
Brides often choose low buns. This is a comfortable and natural hairstyle that can be combined with any veil. The middle bun beautifully reveals the neckline and adds elegance to the look. Brides choose it when they want to lift their hair a little, but not open up their ears. High buns add austerity and chic to the overall look and emphasize the elegance of the silhouette. It’s suitable if you want to remove all hair from the face and appear a little taller.
To match a light and romantic dress
The careless hairstyles with loose strands on either side that seem to be accidentally knocked out are more suitable for flying, flowing, chiffon dresses. If you want to decorate your hair, add small plaits, which are becoming popular again, and will add tenderness and romance to your ensemble. When choosing additional jewellery in your hairstyle, start from the colour and decor of the dress: jewellery in your hair should complement the look.
To match a classic and elegant dress
Neat and minimalist buns are more suitable for a dense satin or guipure dress with embroidery. Buns will add elegance and chic. You don't have to have a sleek classic style: you can add a nice, clean texture to the bun and accentuate the smoothness of the dress. For the jewellery, choose cotton pearls, a small hairpin with a gemstone, matching the colour and finish of your dress.
If you are lost in choosing the hairstyle that will suit, we advise you to contact a professional stylist to draw up a mood board and practice several hairstyles at once. So you try on different looks and decide exactly which one suits you the best.
