Fall 2009 wedding trends are still centered on the Old Hollywood looks of yesteryear and romantic, Grecian-inspired styles. If you plan on attending a wedding in Fall 2009 or will be the bride, here are some of the top women’s hairstyle trends from the bridal runways:
The sleek and chic ponytail is a great look for the wedding guest with very long or wavy hair. To achieve this look, you will need to pull the hair up in a ponytail before using the flat iron, or you will end up with an unattractive spiky effect. This style works especially well if you have bold highlights, and can be finished with a gold or silver head band or head wrap for a stylish, modern look.
Turn yourself into a Grecian goddess for the event with a set of tight braids that wrap around the top of your head. These will add a romantic twist to any wedding ensemble, and are particularly complementary with a Romanesque bridal grown or bridesmaid dress. For Fall 2009, consider adding a handful of gemstones or sparkling hair combs in favor of the luxury-inspired trend of the season.
The sleek chignon is a great match for any bride, and can be pulled off on nearly any hair type. Fall 2009 hairstyle trends are still leaning towards the Old Hollywood looks of the ’20s and ’30s, which means you can pull the hair back with a very deep side part, or go with a classic style with a deep center part. Whatever the case may be, the goal is to create a very simple bun and pat down the hair to the scalp so there are no flyaways.
Loose waves and ringlets are making waves on the red carpet, and Fall 2009 wedding trends are leaning towards more feminine looks. You can create loose waves and ringlets in your hair with a small-barrel curling iron or skinny hair rollers, and leave those locks loose for the day.
Straight and Sleek
The flat-ironed look is back for another wedding season, and works particularly well for bridesmaids and wedding guests with very thick hair. For Fall 2009, this trend is calling for a deep side part or a middle part. Use a heat-protectant hair spray or smoothing gel to keep your style looking chic and sleek for the entire day.
From Grecian-goddess braids to the simple chignon, you have several options for creating a classic and stylish look for the Fall 2009 wedding. Whether you will be the bride, a bridesmaid or a wedding guest, pick out one of these top styles to create an unforgettable look for the big event.
