Summer weddings in New York City are absolutely breathtaking. The sun shining bright, the warm breeze, and the beautiful outdoor scenery make for a perfect backdrop for such a special occasion. However, with the humidity and heat, outdoor summer weddings can present some challenges for hair and makeup. As a leading bridal hair and makeup salon in NYC, we’ve got some tips to help you look your best and stay comfortable at your outdoor summer wedding.
Summer is all about a natural, fresh look that doesn’t appear heavy or cakey on the skin. To achieve this look, we’ll help you choose makeup that’s lightweight and summer weather-proof. Neutral eyeshadows, thin layers of mascara, and subtle pops of color are popular ways to achieve a fresh and beautiful summer bridal look.
Primer is a must-have for outdoor summer weddings, as it helps to keep your makeup in place despite the humidity and heat. Opt for a primer that is specifically designed for your skin type, such as a mattifying primer for oily skin or a hydrating primer for dry skin.
When it comes to choosing a bridal hairstyle for your summer wedding, it’s important to consider the weather conditions. Humidity and heat can cause hair to become frizzy and limp, so it’s best to choose a hairstyle that can withstand these conditions.
One option is a sleek, low ponytail or bun. Another option is a loose, tousled updo. For those with shorter hair, try a chic, textured bob or a layered pixie cut.

Hair accessories are a great way to add some flair to your hairstyle, while also keeping strands off your face. We love the bridal hairstyles mentioned in this blog that pair well with headpieces! Try a delicate flower piece or tiara for a touch of elegance, or opt for a headband or hair scarf for a more bohemian look.
When choosing hair accessories, keep in mind the color and style of your dress, as well as the overall theme of the wedding. You want your hair accessories to complement everything, not overpower it.
Even with the best hair and makeup techniques, it’s always a good idea to pack some essential products for touch-ups throughout the day. Some must-have items include blotting papers to help combat shine, a travel-sized hairspray to keep your hairstyle in place, and a lipstick or lip gloss for touch-ups.
