It’s the big day. You are about to walk down the isle and everyone is standing, turned to face you; but nightmare begins, your hair has suddenly fallen out, it looks a mess, perhaps like a poodle is sitting on your head. You are freaking out and feel that it is the end of the world and the pictures are already ruined. Oops, too late for help, but for those who are not currently in the process of walking down the aisle, we have a few suggestions;
Most importantly, always plan ahead. If you are looking to color, perm, or alter your hair, have it done at least one to two months in advance of the big day. This way, your hair is given a little extra time to soften the style and look natural. In addition, schedule a trial run, whether it is for an up-do or down do. It is important to book this in advance to ensure that you and your stylist are on the same page and you are happy with the end result. Wearing a veil or headpiece, take it to the trial appointment. Haven’t decided on the perfect hair accessory, take several. The stylist will be delighted to make a suggestion based on your desired hairstyle. Who wants to end up with a hairstyle that looses it’s beauty when a gorgeous ﬂoral hairpiece covers all the intricate up-do twists? Or better asked, who wants to cover up the gorgeous hairstyle someone just paid for? Plan ahead and you will be delighted.
Don’t be afraid to shop around for other stylists. The stylist you visit each month for beautiful hi-lights may not specialize in the look you are dreaming of. In fact, he or she may not even like doing formal hairstyles and may only oblige because you are such a great client. Don’t be afraid to ask your stylist for recommendations if formal is not his or her specialty. This is your big day, and it is very different from an everyday cut and color.
Stay True to Yourself
The key to a bomb hairstyle for you is to stay true to yourself. Do not go too over the top and out of your comfort zone, it will only leave guests wondering who the girl in the white dress is or who she wishes she were. You certainly will not be the most comfortable person there if you are constantly reconsidering the hairstyle choice, be fun but be true.
Be Product Free on Your Big Day
It is extremely important to have clean, dry hair on your trial day and wedding day. Stay away from applying conditioner too heavily, especially leave-in conditioner. Also, stay away from silkening products to avoid weighing the hair down and making it slippery, thus hard to work with or unable to hold curl. The stylist will use all the products needed for your style.
A Girl Can Always Accessorize
You can never go wrong with accessorizing! Accessories are trending for 2015 weddings, so have fun. It never hurts to add a gorgeous accent to your wedding hair; however, make sure you choose the right accessory to go complete the look you envision. For a classical look, you may want to wear a Swarovski crystal brooch or jeweled barrettes. If your gown has more ﬂow and is playful, consider adding a bird-cage veil, feathers or unstructured fabric ﬂowers to complete the perfect look. Complement the dress but don’t compete with it; and always remember that you are the most beautiful component of the equation.
In the end, if you remember these simple suggestions then there will be less to stress over on your wedding day.
