For a wedding ceremony, the hairstyle holds just as much importance as the outfit. Brides are sure to agree as they frantically skim through magazines and browse social networks in search of inspiration for the big day. A sophisticated chignon? Bohemian braids? Glamorous side-swept locks? It's not easy to find your way through all of the different options out there. If this is the case for you, here is the one watchword you need to keep in mind: harmony. Your hairstyle must go perfectly with the cut and style of your chosen dress. To get creative with your style, feel free to play with accessories. Floral crowns, headbands, clips, fascinators ... there is an accessory to suit every taste, and put the icing on the (wedding) cake. All these are highly on-trend; just what you need to say "I do" in style!

However, the bride is not the only one who has to worry about her hairstyle. Whatever the type of ceremony the bridesmaids, witnesses, mother of the bride and guests will all need to consider carefully which look to go for to get dressed up for the big day. Have you received a wedding invitation? Before rushing headlong to the salon, make sure you choose a hairstyle that is in keeping with the theme of the reception. Neither too extravagant nor too casual, the hairstyle you choose should enhance your look without outshining the bride. Although that would take some doing, it is still essential to strike the right balance, therefore, it's best to plan and search for your look in advance. Fortunately, we have compiled a dossier of all our tips and advice on finding the ideal hairstyle for a wedding ceremony!

Do you wish to get a bob cut, but never do things by halves so have decided to go for the short version? Before saying goodbye to your locks, make sure you are prepared to live with your new look, as a short bob means that you need to be disciplined about upkeep. If getting regular touch-ups at the salon to keep your cut looking flawless does not bother you, go ahead and take the plunge!

The short bob has got everything going for it to give you a great new look, provided the style is carefully chosen to enhance your features and your hair type. Unstructured or layered versions prevent your bob from getting that dense 'helmet head' effect and they can add volume to fine hair and boost the bounce of natural curls. Playing with different lengths can work wonders, no matter what your desired look! A-line or asymmetrical versions create a bolder look. The short bob is ideal for adding character to finer features. It also gives the timeless bob cut a modern and daring edge. Ultra-short blunt versions create an irresistibly retro style which flatters oval face shapes and goes wonderfully with square jaws, further enhancing their androgynous look. With the added a twist of a fringe, the bob becomes structured. This is perfect way to conceal a large forehead in the blink of an eye.

Once you have found the perfect short bob, it is down to you to try out lots of different hairstyles. Dare to try out glamorous curls, a wavy rock chick vibe or a wet look which will completely transform your hairstyle.

As for anyone who is still undecided, there is still the faux bob which you can rock whenever you fancy.

In this feature, you will find all of our advice on choosing the perfect short bob for you!

Are you a big fan of colouring your hair? If so, you are most likely familiar with the same old ordeal every month: your roots starting to show as soon as your hair grows out.

Ideally, you should get them touched up at the salon every six weeks so that they don't show too much. However, when short on time or money, lots of women postpone their trip to the hairdresser. The result: your roots grow out and become more visible. Luckily, this is the current trend! However, the greater the contrast between your base and the colouring treatment, the more your roots are visible and the harder it will be to live with between colouring treatments.

The best way to blend in the demarcation between your coloured hair and natural roots is a tone-on-tone colouring treatment. This will gradually fade and will help prevent that unsightly 'dark roots look'. Fortunately, there are solutions for those who do not wish to change their hair colouring habits.

To conceal your roots whilst waiting for your next colouring treatment, you have several options:

- use clever accessories (such as a headband to conceal your roots in the blink of an eye)

- choose smart hairstyles to make your roots go unnoticed

- curl your locks to blur the demarcation lines by creating movement in your hair

- tie up your locks with a slicked-back look at the front to make the section of growing-out roots look smaller

In this feature article, you will find all of our advice on how to best deal with your roots between colouring treatments and styling tips on how to conceal them!
