The Best Hairstyles For Different Climates

The climate on your wedding day can make all the difference between amazing hair and a complete disaster. From neat updos to beachy waves and relaxed ponytails, find out which hairstyle works for in the wind, heat and humidity.

Twisted Updo

Twisted Updo

Whether you are celebrating on a beach or in a glamorous ballroom, a neat, twisted up-do will look gorgeous no matter the setting! This style is your safest bet whatever the weather forecast for your big day. Since it is well secured, it can stand even the strongest seaside winds and humidity. So rest assured it will look fresh and sleek all day long.

Relaxed Chignon

Relaxed Chignon

Or perhaps you prefer a slightly more un-done look for your country wedding? A relaxed chignon is just perfect as it will look great even if the weather isn’t ideal. This hairstyle isn’t prone to humidity and light wind definitely won’t ruin it.

Tied Chignon

Tied Chignon

Add a twist to a classical chignon with a massive knot at the back which will not only look fabulous but will also secure your locks in place. To make sure your hair looks flawless despite rain, wind or heat, use styling products that provide extra strength, but also leave your hair silky and natural.

Polished Top Knot

Polished Top Knot

A top knot will save you from a bad hair day on any occasion, but for your wedding day opt for a slightly more groomed and polished look. Your hair stylist will firstly prep your tresses with styling products to add texture and volume and then elegantly sculpt the top knot until it looks absolutely perfect. The addition of a hair comb will add that extra touch of glamour! 

Glam Waves

Glam Waves

Glamorous 1940’s style waves can be difficult to maintain, especially in extreme weather conditions, so opt for this hairstyle if you will be celebrating indoors and out of the wind and heat. It is a romantic hair-do so a glitzy ballroom or a chic hotel venue is the perfect setting for it.

Grecian Goddess

Grecian Goddess

If you want an elegant half down-do that can stand even the strongest wind, we recommend the Grecian goddess style. Your hair should be backcombed and secured with two plaits, braids or twists at the back. To achieve the best effect, use a straightening iron to define and flatten the rest of your hair. 

Beachy Waves

Beachy Waves

Relaxed, loose waves are perfect for a laid-back beach wedding! Using the appropriate styling products will secure your locks, so that your hair looks gorgeous for hours, but ocean breeze and rain are the enemies, so go for this style only if it is going to be dry day and not too windy. 

Side-Swept Ponytail

Side-Swept Ponytail

If you want a hairstyle that is youthful and effortless, then a side-swept ponytail is perfect for you! It is completely weather-proof and easy to create (you could do it yourself). We find it works best for brides with long hair. Add a flower crown to give your look a little edge.

Messy Halo Braid

Messy Halo Braid

Looking for a glam and trendy hairstyle that looks better when slightly messy? A halo braid is ideal for all seasons and all weather conditions (it will still look great even if the wind picks up or it starts to rain). For a modern twist opt for loose fishtail braids, and leave a few pieces of hair out on each side. Or if your having a more formal wedding then a tight braid wrapped around your head is best.

Side-Swept Braid

Side-Swept Braid

A side-swept braid might seem slightly informal for a wedding, but if we've seen celebrities rock this look on red carpet event. Tell your hair stylist to keep the look glam and flamboyant or slightly bohemian with floral wreaths incorporated in the look. Harsh weather won’t ruin this style, so it's great for outdoor ceremonies any time of year.
