Hi friends! Now I’m no hair stylist or hair expert, but I have seen and planned enough weddings to know a thing or two. I also know that having the perfect hair is a top priority for many brides (and grooms too!), so here are a few tips I’ve picked up along the way:
- Deep condition. Get some deep conditioning treatments in the months leading up to your big day. Your hair should be in good shape for your wedding and that takes at least a few months of effort. That also means using regularly using heat protection spray whenever you blow dry, curl or straighten!
- Plan out your haircuts. You don’t want a fresh haircut for your wedding – it’s just too risky and most men and women need some time for a new cut to settle in. Schedule your final haircut about one to three weeks from the wedding so it looks natural.
- This is not a time for risks. On a similar note, don’t try anything too drastic in the weeks before the wedding. So no Japanese straightening, perming, relaxing, etc. if you’ve never done it before!
- A picture for reference. You’ll want to make sure you have a consultation with your hair stylist before the wedding. Pictures always help! Don’t just bring some examples of hairstyles you like, but also remember to bring a picture of your dress. Your hair stylist will be able to help guide you in terms of what will look best with the neckline, style and veil.
- Place the veil with caution. One final word of advice: don’t dig the comb for your veil or headpiece too deep. You’ll get a headache!
And don’t worry, your wedding day will surely be a good hair day too!
