Wedding Hairstyles are on the Calendar
With wedding season on the horizon, we’ve compiled some of our favorite wedding hairstyles and top tips for arranging your wedding trial…
Timing is everything…
This isn’t the kind of appointment you should be trying to squeeze in on your lunch hour! Allocate more than enough time for you to avoid unnecessary stress. Start searching for your stylist at least three months before your big day. For your trial, you’re going to need at least an hour. We recommend booking your trial before a dress fitting, followed by an evening out to see how your style lasts & photographs over the course of the night. Don’t be afraid to do more than one trial! Many brides will have two or three test runs before finding a style they truly love and feel comfortable with. To be as economical as possible experiment with your styles when attending other weddings, parties over the year.
Preparation is key…
Regular trims & treatments in the months before your big day are a must – but the night before your trial: Wash & dry your hair, without using products. If your hair is wavy or curly, it’s better for your stylist to work with your natural hair texture than to fight it, especially if you’re getting married in an area where humidity will come into play. Bring in any hair accessories with you so your stylist may fix them in place to ensure they last all day & night!
Bringing pictures is a given, but don’t feel as though you need to narrow it down to just one option. Pinterest is a wonderful source of inspiration, but a lot of the pictures you’ll find will only show the hair from one angle. If you love the front of one look but the back of another, your stylist can work to incorporate elements of your favorite ideas. Not sure what you want? Bring a photo of your dress — this can help your stylist get a sense of your personal style. Plus, they can help you determine the best look based on the neckline of your dress.
Know what you want AND what you don’t want!
Sometimes, it can be even more helpful to tell your stylist what you don’t like — especially if you’re going in without a clear vision of your dream wedding day hairstyle. Do you prefer loose waves or tight curls? Sleek or textured upstyles? These cues will help your stylist find the perfect fit.
Be open to change…
If you’re in love with a particular style, ask your stylist if he/she would recommend changing anything about your current cut and colour to enhance your look. You may find that your style would look better with a side-swept fringe or that you should cut layers into your long locks to add dimension. Or, your stylist may suggest something subtle, like parting your hair on the opposite side or overextending the part. If you highlight your hair, we recommend getting a touch up 7/10 days before the big day; that will give it time to tone down, but you won’t have regrowth showing yet.
