You probably already know that you should select somber, classic clothing for a funeral service or wake. The same principle applies to your hairstyle. Choose a hairstyle that won’t call attention to yourself and doesn’t look too overdone. For men, this may mean omitting the spiking gel in favor of a clean, combed look. For women, this may mean avoiding a messy, tousled hairstyle in favor of a sleek ponytail or chignon.
You can watch this video get more helpful ideas on choosing a proper hairstyle for a funeral service. This hairstylist demonstrates how her model’s hair is both elegant and respectful.

After the funeral service and burial or cremation for your loved one, your family may feel as though a lost loved one should be permanently memorialized. Memorials – whether permanently placed in a memorial park or in the family home – offer a way for loved ones to reflect upon memories and pay homage to the decedent. Some memorials, such as memorial websites, allow distant family members and friends to join together to honor the life that has been lost.
Sometimes, staying busy with physical tasks after a loss is helpful for working through grief. Consider creating a water feature in your backyard to memorialize your loved one. Build a pond, line it with decorative rocks and ferns, and add fish if you wish. You may also wish to place a rock or other marker near the pond that is engraved with your loved one’s name.
Memorial jewelry is a wonderful way to keep reminders of your lost loved one close to you. You may wish to wear a signature piece of your loved one’s own jewelry collection. Or, you could place a photograph or a lock of his or her hair inside a locket.
Family members and friends that are scattered around the country or across the globe may appreciate a memorial website. There are many hosting companies that offer this service or your family could create your own website. With a memorial website, friends and family members can upload their favorite pictures of the decedent, share stories, and offer emotional support to each other.
Another way to memorialize your lost loved one is to explore volunteer opportunities in your area. You might consider volunteering as a grief counselor, a hospice volunteer, or as a driver for cancer patients who need to get to treatments. Volunteer opportunities are a way to remember your lost loved one while providing some much-needed assistance to the living.
The funeral professionals at Mountain View Funeral Home and Memorial Park understand the need for surviving family members and friends to honor their lost loved ones through memorials that will stand the test of time. Our funeral home provides personalized memorial options, including memorial benches, pedestals, posts, and private cremation estates. Families in the Tacoma area can call our memorial park at (888) 757-3958.
