Weather-Ready Hair Styles

Beat the Heat When it Comes to Choosing Your Style

Let's start with hair, shall we? 

Italy is known for its effortlessly chic style, so choosing a stylish hair do will make you look and feel fantastic. 

From classic up-dos to boho braids, the options are endless, and by working with your chosen professional for wedding hair and make up in Italy,  you're sure to find a look that suits your personality and style!

But hold up, before you commit to a hairdo, there's one crucial thing you need to consider: the weather

Italy is a beautiful country, but it can get pretty hot during summer. The last thing you want is for your hair to stick to your neck all day long, or even worse – rocking that humid air – frizzy hair look. 

It’s not a good look, and it's not comfortable either.

Our advice: Choose a style that's not only stylish but also practical.

Opt for an updo that keeps your hair off your neck and shoulders, or try a loose braid that's both trendy and functional. Another idea would be to have your hair down for the part of the celebration where you'll be inside. For example, if you're getting married in a church, chances are that it will be nice and cool inside. Then once you are on your way to your chosen Italy wedding venue, you can pin it up for the rest of the day where you'll be outdoors and dancing into the night. 

Remember to bring some hair spray and bobby pins in your emergency kit to keep everything in place, too!

Your wedding day is all about feeling confident, and your hair plays a big role in that. So take the time to choose a style that not only looks fantastic but also feels comfortable and practical.

Unleash Your Inner Italian Goddess

Get ready to enhance your natural beauty while adding a touch of glam.

We're talking dewy, glowing skin that looks fresh and healthy – it's all about that lit-from-within look!

To achieve this, we recommend using skincare products that hydrate and nourish the skin. Keep it simple and let your natural beauty shine through.

Bold brows are all the rage these days and for good reason – they frame your face and make a big impact on your overall appearance. 

What’s most important is that you choose a brow product that matches your natural hair colour and provides long-lasting hold throughout your wedding day in Italy.

No one wants their brows smudging all over the place!

And what's dreamy wedding day look without a pop of colour on the lips? 

We're talking bold reds, pinks, and oranges – so much fun and playfulness in one tube! The perfect tone against for your vibrant Italian backdrop. 

When choosing a lipstick, make sure to consider the finish. A creamy, moisturising formula is ideal for achieving that dewy effect that will look great in your wedding photos. 

But here's the real secret to keeping your wedding hair and makeup in Italy looking fresh all day long: blotting sheets and setting spray! 

Pop them in your emergency kit and you'll thank us later. 

Blotting sheets help control excess oil and shine, while setting spray locks your makeup in place and prevent any smudging or fading. They’re super essential for maintaining a flawless look throughout the day, whatever the weather.
