Want to know the secret to having your wedding hairstyle hold beautifully from the ceremony to the end of the reception?
Ok… here it is…Hair fillers!
As an award-winning professional hair stylist, I use hair fillers on my brides to increase volume and add a little oomph, without making the bride look unnatural.
The fillers are lightweight and come in several different colors, shapes and sizes, so just about any bride can find her match. Since the bobby pins holding the bridal updo
in place can be anchored into the hair filler, fillers afford the bride much more comfort on her wedding day, too!
Fillers are great for most bridal updos, including top knot styles, classic chignons, and buns of any kind. And your updo will not lose its shape until you are ready to take down the style! I highly recommend hair fillers for brides with fine, silky or short hair
. And remember... you don’t have to choose a bridal updo to add some hair filler volume! A simple blow dry with hair fillers secured at the crown will give you bouncy voluminous bridal tresses
, a la Gisele Bundchen.
Hair fillers also work wonders to keep your bridal veil
in place! Since cathedral veils
are long and weighty, a filler secured at the crown of the head will reinforce the bridal hairstyle and keep it standing at attention. This is one of the best kept secrets
when it comes to wedding day hair!
