September 15, 2022

At Updos For I Dos, we believe that every bride should look and feel her absolute best on her wedding day! Choosing the perfect hairstyle is a major aspect in achieving just that, your dream bridal look. If you’re unsure of your face shape or how to select a hairstyle that compliments it, our team of professional hairstylists are here to help! 

A great time to review your wedding hairstyle options is during your pre-wedding hair and makeup trial with us, especially if you are unsure of how to choose the perfect hairstyle for yourself! Whether or not you’ve experienced your hair trial, we hope you find this guide helpful in selecting the best hairstyles for your beautiful face shape! Continue reading for our breakdown. 

Hairstyles for Round Faces

For brides with round faces, the goal is to create the illusion of length and draw attention upwards. Consider styles that pull the hair up high, like elegant top knots or voluminous high ponytails! Heavy face-framing pieces can add definition and contour to your face, making these styles completely stunning options for your big day.

Hairstyles for Long Faces

If you have a long face, adding volume to the sides of your head is essential to create a more balanced appearance! Side-swept updos are fabulous for adding width and softness, while half-up hairstyles with a heavy fringe can break up the length of your face beautifully!

Hairstyles for Oval Faces

Oval faces are incredibly versatile and can accommodate almost any hairstyle. Whether you prefer an intricate updo, flowing waves, or a sleek and, your face shape can pull off a variety of styles effortlessly! Feel free to experiment during your trial to find the perfect bridal look that makes you feel absolutely radiant.

Hairstyles for Square Faces

For square face shapes, the aim is to soften the edges and create a more rounded appearance. Soft curls, bouncy blowouts, and layered styles can add movement and diminish the angularity of your features. Face-framing layers work wonders, and updos with thicker face-framing pieces can also provide a softer, more romantic look for your wedding day!

Hairstyles for Heart Shape Faces

Heart-shaped faces are ideal for wearing bangs and hairstyles that add volume around the chin. Wearing your hair down with curls or waves is one way to create a beautiful and balanced look! Lobs (long bobs) are particularly complimentary, as they highlight your cheekbones and balance a narrower chin, giving you a stunning bridal look!
