Getting married, or should I say, the actual wedding is something most girls dream about their entire lives. Once the shock and excitement of getting proposed to sinks in, it’s time to get to work. This may be the biggest party you ever plan and it’s centered all around you (and your groom too I suppose) so
Besides finding THE dress, your wedding day hairstyle should be at the top of your “Important Stuff” list. On your wedding day, you should feel like the most glamourous version of yourself. This is a time in your life to put yourself first, allow yourself to get pampered, and feel really good about everything. You deserve this… you are about to get married!
Here are some of my tips to get prepared when it comes to your wedding day hair…
-When it comes to your wedding day hair, first ask yourself if your current hairstylist would be a good candidate to style you. Be sure to check with them, because many hairstylists actually don’t do wedding hair, so don’t assume. If your stylist doesn’t, ask them if they have any referrals for you.
–Start looking at pictures in magazines or online to find wedding hair inspiration. Tear out the pages, print the pictures, and save them in a folder. Think about what you like about each picture, maybe what you don’t like as much, and this will be really helpful to your hairstylist. Keep in mind that if you feel most beautiful when your hair is down, then you probably don’t want to wear your hair up in a fancy sleek updo, and vise versa. You still need to feel like you… don’t feel like you SHOULD wear your hair a certain way.
–Figure out where this fits into your budget. When planning a wedding you’ll quickly realize how expensive every detail can be, and wedding hair is part of the equation too. Figure out what you can budget for hair is and then you can start shopping around to hopefully find someone within that budget.
–Think about how you’d like your hair color and haircut to be for your wedding. If your hair is black and you’re wanting to be a blonde for your wedding, then you better saddle up and start this process many months prior to. Talk with your colorist, even if it’s a year in advance, and get their advice when it comes to your color. As for your haircut, if your hair isn’t as long as you’d hope it would be for the wedding, there are ways of using extensions to make this happen. Again, talk with your hairstylist and get their advice.
–Do a trial run before the day of your wedding. This is something you want to do 2-4 weeks before the big day. The goal of this hair appointment is to figure out the exact way your hair will be styled. This way there is no stress, and the day of the wedding you and your hairstylist are on the same page, and you can just relax while you get beautified.
What to bring to your trial run:
-pictures of hair styles you like
-picture of your wedding dress
-your veil or any hair brooches you may want to use
-any earrings or necklace you are planning to wear
