Wedding Hair Styles, Tips & Tricks:
So your special day is here and you want to look your best. Follow our steps to make your day as perfect as possible. You know the perfect wedding hair style can make or break your special day ;)
Make sure you use a stylist that you go to on a regular basis who is familiar with your hair. This is extremely important! If for example your hair is very thick and curly and you want it straightened for your wedding day, you want to ensure your stylist has straightened your hair type and texture before.
It's amazing how many stylists try to straighten naturally curly hair with the wrong curling iron or hair products and you come out looking like a mushroom head or frizz rather than having hair with a sleek shiny finish. Afro hair especially requires an iron with a hot stove for a sleek finish. But make sure your stylist has done this before. The last thing you want is burnt hair!
Book your appointment with your stylist 4 months prior to your wedding day. You know that your special is a very busy time – especially all the time leading up to it. From planning the guest lists to, finding the right location, choosing the cake and flowers etc. it’s quite a task. So it is very important that you have an appointment date and time booked with your stylist ahead of time.
Call a week prior to your hair appointment and then confirm again 3 days prior to make sure that you are booked for the specified date and time. Since this is a very hectic time you want to ensure you weren't bumped inadvertently.
Bring a picture of your dress to show your stylist so that they can match your dress with your hairstyle. Low backs or high necks on dresses can be accented with just the right style.
Search for pictures of a celebrity that has a similar face shape as you. What style do you best like on them? The best style that compliments their face shape will also probably compliment you as well.
If you plan on coloring your hair for your wedding, do this at least 2.5 weeks prior to the special day. And make sure your stylist is well versed in hair color techniques best suited to all types of skin tones. You don't want any unexpected surprises. If you don't like your color, you can always have it enhanced or fixed prior to your special day.
Decide on whether you'll have long, short, straight or curly hair. If you opt for extensions make sure you are working with a stylist that is familiar with your hair texture. Your stylist should already be very familiar with your hair type and texture and should be able to match the extensions properly to your hair. The last thing you want is a bad extension job the day of your wedding.
Make sure you have the right accessories to match your hairstyle and dress. Look at magazine pictures. Wedding magazines are a great resource. Check online for celebrity pictures from the Oscars or music awards. Find the celebrity style that you can incorporate into your look.
Make sure the flowergirl's attire compilments your wedding dress, hairstyle and flower choices.
A color coordinated bridal party make everything come together nicely.
Remember, plan your special day so that you will enjoy it and remember it for years to come.
You're worth it. Take these steps to ensure your wedding day is as perfect as possible.
