Hair stylist expert, Antoine Bréchu, on choosing your wedding hair-do:
Are you undecided about how to wear your hair on your wedding day? Should you wear it up, down, or half-up and half-down? Why not create two different looks? Choose a more formal updo for the ceremony, and then let your hair down — literally — for the reception! You don’t want either look to be too complicated, so work with your stylist to make sure that you pick two styles that will make it easy to transition from one to the other.
