Must-Have Products for Wedding Hair
The journey to wedding hair flawlessness begins with finding ‘the one’: the most beautiful bridal hairstyle. Practice makes perfect, so start trying out styles at least one or two months before the big day arrives. This allows enough time to order in any hair pieces or accessories the finished look might need, while important factors like location, flowers and dress style will all be locked in place.
Speaking of flowers and the dress, these are details that a hairstylist needs to know about. If that’s you, ask the bride to bring photos to the test run, so you can ensure the hair will work with her full look. Then, ask questions. For example, if she’s wearing a one-shouldered gown, does she want her hair to trail down one side? Is there some back detail she’d like to show off? Or would she like to tuck some of her bouquet flowers in her hair?
Even if you’re doing your wedding hair yourself, these are all things you need to think about. Location also comes into play, as an outdoor wedding might mean your braids need to be plaited that little bit tighter, or a few extra spritzes of hairspray are required. As for color, book the final appointment so it falls around one week before the wedding. This way, the color will still look fresh on the day, but there’s time for tweaks if necessary.
