Although styling your daughter’s hair on her First Holy Communion isn’t as important as the ceremony, it still plays an integral part of the day. Check out 28 elegant and formal hairstyle ideas in the following HairGlamourista post.
“From faith, hope, and love, the virtues of religion referring to God, there arises a double act which bears on the spiritual communion exercised between God and us; the hearing of the word and prayer.”
― William Ames
Creating a hairdo for a young girl’s First Communion can be a challenging task. However, there is a chronological order that can help you make a decision sooner. The first thing to keep in mind is the length and texture of her hair. Depending on this, you can figure out whether to create an updo with a veil or braids with a wreath, or wear the hair down with a headband. The second step involves the design, length, and pattern of the dress she’ll be wearing for the day. Once you have these two vital steps taken care of, you will be able to find an appropriate First Communion hairstyle.
But before you finalize any style for your little princess, keep her likes and dislikes into consideration. After all, it is she who will be spending the day in a gorgeous hairstyle; it might as well be something she truly adores.

shampoo her hair at the end of the bath. This will prevent your child from sitting in sudsy water for a long time.
use a wide-toothed comb or a paddle brush while you style the hair (that is dry).
cut or trim her hair at least 2 weeks before the ceremony.
use hot styling tools sparingly; and that too on a low setting.
