No fussy strands will be flying in and out of your face when you make it official with the love of your life! Opting for a crown braid or twist in the front of your head will keep strands from flying over your face, making it easier for a photographer to capture your most precious moments.

This may seem counterintuitive for some, but if having your hair down is an absolute must for your wedding ceremony, a wavy style is your best bet. With spiral and perm-rod curls sure to bounce around in the wind and potentially drop under humid temps, opting for a wavier style will make it easier to conceal sweated out roots. And the upside is that wavier strands look just as gorgeous when they grow in size.

Pin straight 'dos are easy enough to maintain, but, be sure to seal the deal with an anti-humidity spray, such as the Macadamia Hair Finishing Spray.
