For some of us (myself included), our hair is our best attribute. So having perfect hair on your wedding day is a huge deal. It’s a good idea to start thinking about what you want to do with your hair after you have gotten the dress. Here are some tips to help you out!
- Start researching
One helpful hint here is that it might be a good idea to get the dress or least have an idea of the sort of dress you want. I say this because depending on the neckline, you want your bridal hairstyle to compliment the neckline, not be over the top. Do some research, Google your favorite celebs hairstyles, have the girls over and go through some magazine and get some ideas. Keep the ones you really love and then start looking for a stylist, if you don’t already have one.
- Schedule a consultation
Even if you don’t know exactly what you want to do, this will allow you to develop confidence and trust in your stylist. Tell them what you absolutely won’t do, details about the dress, particularly the neckline and perhaps even then theme. This way they will be able to help come up with ideas if you don’t have any. If you do know exactly what you want, bring pictures with you so you can show her. She can try a few things while you sitting there and this will enable you both to communicate.
- Color your hair in advance
If you plan to spruce up your color be sure to do it at least a week before so it has time to settle and not look drastic. At the same token, if you are planning to do something completely different than what you have, do it a month ahead of time. This way if corrections or adjustments need to be made you will have the time, at the same time; it will give you a chance to get used to it. The most important factor here is being sure you have enough time to make changes if needed.
- Have Day 2 Hair on your wedding day
If you want your hair to be easier to style then don’t wash your hair the morning of your appointment, wash it the night before. Sounds strange but for the most part the day you wash, your hair is super soft and shiny but won’t keep a curling iron curl after an hour! If your hair is naturally curly like mine, chances are day 2 hair is better than day 1 here are the products I use.
Hopefully you will find these tips useful in achieving your flawless bridal hairstyle that will have everyone pea green with envy!
