For a lot of women, they have been thinking about the most important occasion of their lives for a long time. Some even since they were very young.
One of the most important things about the day is wedding hair!
There are many factors to take into account when thinking about hairstyles.
What style of dress will you wear? A backless, strapless gown, could be complimented with hair up or down! Hair up will draw attention to the dress and hair down will draw attention to the hair.
How long is your hair? Will you need to grow it before the wedding? If so, this needs to be planned a long time in advance. Extensions and hair pieces can play a big role in wedding hair too and talking to your stylist will determine which way to go.
Hair accessories can make or break a wedding style, however, there are things that you must think about such as weight! We once had to fix a heavy tiara onto someone’s hair. It proved extremely difficult and we know it gave the client a headache not to mention the stylist, whose job it was to fix it in place for at least 12 hours.
Fresh flowers look gorgeous in hair and can really compliment the wedding dress but fresh flowers only have a short life away from water and can die by the end of the day. This is not a great look to wear for your wedding!
Take into account the time of the wedding and the time of the appointment in the salon or at the venue. Get your hair done too early and it may not last – too late and it can put the stylist and bride under immense pressure to fit in with the photographer, make-up artist and journey to the register office or church.
Think about hair colour too, any colour should be done as near to the date a possible however, it may need a week or two to settle. Colour can fade once it’s washed too.
Keep your hair in good condition in the run up to the wedding, with a deep conditioning treatment and have regular trims so that it is in the best possible condition on the day.
When you’re planning your wedding, it’s always best to book a consultation with your stylist to chat about styles and to perhaps look at some images which can be tried out.
