20 Summer Wedding Hairstyles For The New Orleans Bride

Are you a sunshine lovin' bride, planning your NOLA nuptials during the summertime?  Then this post is for you!  Look no further for summer wedding hairstyle inspiration by local NOLA styling professionals!

For most locations, summertime tends to be the most popular season for weddings.  New Orleans, however, tends to be an exception to that rule.  Its no secret that NOLA, with its sub-tropical climate, is a humidity-rich hotbox during the summer months.  Because of this thick, muggy heat, wedding seasons tends to experience a lull (at least a little) during this time.  For budget brides, this can be an ideal situation, as availability will rise and prices will fall during this season.

If you're one of the brave brides holding their wedding between May and August (and- let's face it- most of September), finding ways to beat the heat on your big day is a priority.  One suggestion would be to wear a gown that doesn't trap in the heat as much as, let's say, a ball gown (think sheath gown).  >>>If you already have your heart set on a princess ballgown, make sure you're prepared with extra coffee filters to blot away all the sweat that builds up under layers of crinoline!  A second suggestion (outlined in this post) would be to choose a hairstyle that keeps your lovely locks up and out of your way throughout the day.  In a sub-tropical climate like New Orleans, heat and humidity wreak havoc on all hair, no matter what type.  Regardless of your hair type, you'll want to find a hairstyle that will keep your locks under control and looking fabulous well into the night.
