Too often, women walk into a hair salon before attending a wedding and give the hairstylist a vague request. “Loose waves” or “ikaw na bahala” will work for some, but the best way to get fab hair for important occasions is to show up with an actual peg. To help you with that, here are six non-boring hairstyles you can try the next time you attend a wedding:
1. Braided updo
Ditch the usual teased and twisted updos for this relaxed braided hairstyle, as inspired by Mariel Rodriguez:
2. Statement ponytail
Ask for a voluminous Dutch braid on your brow, then gather the rest of your hair into a low ponytail, just like Yassi Pressman. Perfect for backless and low-cut dresses!
3. Beach waves, defined
When you ask for curls, it would be best to tell your stylist exactly what type you want to achieve. One type perfect for special occasions is loose beach waves, just like how Anne Curtis styled her tresses:
4. Voluminous locks
If you’re not in the mood to get your hair done but are willing to pay to make “pa-blower,” ditch the slick-straight style salons offer and tell your stylist to curl the ends for added volume. Show her this photo of Maine Mendoza looking like she woke up with perfect hair.
5. Flower child
We’re obsessed with this bohemian ‘do on Liza Soberano! This elegant but casual hairstyle will look amazing on medium to long hair lengths, especially if you’re a bridesmaid.
6. Crimped hair
If you have shorter hair, try opting for this crimped hairstyle on Lovi Poe. Chic!
