your big day, and you want to look your very best.from the
'tips of your toes', to the 'top of your head'.
by looking at hairstyles and getting an idea of what look
you want. Take some time to think. Think about the neckline
of your wedding dress. A high-necked dress looks lovely
with a sweeping updo, and a plunging neckline may be complimented
by flowing tresses. Think about the time of year. Hot summer
months may not be conducive to wearing your hair down. Think
about your facial shape. Think about what suits you and
your personality. You should be comfortable with your hair
on your wedding day. It should be "you". just a little fancier
version of yourself!
to find a stylist? If you do not have a stylist,
or are not a regular at a salon already, then talk to other
brides-to-be, ask friends, or visit the frugal brides board
where there are many diehard babblers who can recommend
take all of your photos and ideas to your stylist for consultation.
If possible, have a photograph or picture of your wedding
dress. This will help the stylist in determining what will
look best. Take along any headpieces, tiaras or combs that
you will be wearing. Including your veil. It would be horrible
to go through a trial, pick your hairstyle, and then find
out that your veil doesn't suit the style!
with your stylist. Talk to them about what drives
you crazy (ie. Maybe you hate hair hanging in your face)
or what you love. Don't be afraid to let the stylist know
that you don't like what they are doing, or that you had
a different vision in mind. A stylist understands that their
artistic ideas may not be yours.
is not a good idea to go for any dramatic changes just prior
to your wedding day. Unless you are trying to
shock family and friends. not to mention your FiancÚ! Try
to have highlights, colour or cuts done one to two weeks
prior to your big day. Your stylist can always 'touch up'
a cut for you on your big day.
the hair products with your stylist. Make sure
that you try out any new products for a few weeks prior
to your wedding day. Your big day is not the time to find
out that the new hairspray doesn't hold well for you!
whether you want the stylist to come to your home, or whether
you would prefer to visit a salon. Both have
their advantages. Having someone come to your home could
save you time. However, going to the salon means that you
could be pampered from 'head to toe' as there are often
spa facilities on the premises. All of this will depend
on your schedule for your big day, and should be discussed
with your stylist.
other members of your bridal party are having their hair
done also, don't forget to have them come in
to visit the stylist for a consultation at least two to
three weeks prior to the wedding day.
it is your day to shine! And you want your hair to be your
'crowning glory'. So be sure to do our research, think about
what you want, and communicate with your stylist.
