Don’t underestimate the importance of choosing the right wedding hairstyle. One of the biggest talking points of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent wedding were those distracting stray hairs framing Meghan’s face. Viewers took to Twitter to voice their displeasure and their overwhelming desire to lend her a bobby pin!
Meghan Markle we understand you are revolutionizing the messy bun here but your wedding day is not the time to allow a loose piece of hair #bobbypins

Needless to say Meghan looked very beautiful…just a few important things could have made it perfect. Your wedding will be an unforgettable moment in your life, and the last thing you want to be doing is fussing over your hair. Wedding hair should stay in place all day and look amazing from start to finish. But how do you achieve this? These tips from June-Rose will point you in the right direction.
Get The Wedding Hair You Want
Proper preparation and an experienced hairstylist are the keys to getting the wedding hair you want.
- Spend time before your hair trial and work out whether you want an upstyle or a downstyle. It’s important to remember that images on Pinterest are often recently created and taken for the red carpet with artists touching the style up every few minutes.
- Bits and pieces hanging out do not always look good (remember how the internet freaked out over Meghan Markle’s stray wedding hairs).
- Employ an experienced wedding hair stylist who comes highly recommended. Talk to your stylist about the look you want and ask for their honest, professional opinion.
- An upstyle specialist will design a style that will look good and will stay in well. It should feel secure without the use of hundreds of bobby pins. Your wedding hair should not feel uncomfortable whatsoever.
- Care should be taken to attach the veil in the correct position. There are different methods of attaching a veil, depending on where it is to be placed and whether it will be held over the face.
- Place flowers or jewellery over the part of the veil where the comb is attached. Otherwise, your veil can look dull and as though it’s missing something.
It’s not always a good idea to cut or trim the hair when designing an upstyle. Sometimes thick hair can be too heavy at the ends, and we need to tuck soft ends in well.
