Every bride wants gorgeous tresses on her big day. Here are a few tips in order to ensure you’ll be well coiffed when it’s time to shine.
Take A Test Run
It’s important to have a test run or trial with your stylist in order to preview their work and try out different hair styles. It can be helpful to bring photos of styles that you like. Pinterest has tons of gorgeous wedding hair styles to check out. You may also want to bring a friend along for honest feedback.
Don’t be afraid to speak up if you have any suggestions or aren’t happy. Time how long it takes to execute your desired hairstyle from start to finish in order to account for time prep on your big day. Bring a photo of your dress; this may give your stylist ideas on how to accentuate your dress and pull the entire look together.
Take photos of styles that you like during the session from various angles including front, side and back. Some styles may look good from the front but may be less flattering from other angles. These photos can also help you narrow down the styles to your final choice.
Use The Right Tools
Most wedding hair styles will require the use of a hair dryer, flat iron or curling iron. Your stylist may give you a blowout first and follow up with curling it if you are going for an updo. Make sure your stylist will use the correct hair dryer for your hair type. For example, if you have thick hair you’ll need a dryer with at least 1800 watts like the Babyliss Pro 2800 while you’ll want a diffuser if you have curly or wavy strands.
Take care of your hair prior to the big event by conditioning your hair and get a small trim a few months before the big day in order to get rid of dry and split ends. Avoid getting any last minute trims in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
