Pronovias If there is ever a time in your life that it’s all about the hair, your wed­ding day is it. Work­ing with your stylist to achieve the per­fect look should start at least a month be­fore your day, and there are many fac­tors that con­trib­ute to a flaw­less look. Kirsten McIn­tosh, of Revlon Pro­fes­sional, shares her tips for get­ting great bridal hair.

When should a bride have her first hair trial, and how many should she plan to have to­tal?

“I would rec­om­mend hav­ing a trial one month to three weeks in ad­vance of your wed­ding day. This al­lows time to ad­just the look and dis­cuss the pos­si­bil­ity of an­other trial if re­quired. I gen­er­ally find one ap­point­ment is enough for most brides.”

What should a bride bring to her hair trial?

“Come well pre­pared for a trial date with the veil, ex­ten­sions, hair jew­ellery Marchetaand pos­si­bly the earrings you will be wear­ing.”

What are some of your favourite wed­ding hair­styles?

“Cur­rently I’m into looks that are very classy and chic. I love a three-di­men­sional-look­ing bun fas­tened at the middle-low back of the head with a soft side-part and fin­ger waves for fem­i­nine de­tails. I also love mod­ern­ized looks of the 1940s— pretty, el­e­gant and time­less.”

Do you rec­om­mend that brides look for style ideas in ad­vance of the hair trial?

“All stylists def­i­nitely love it when brides bring photo in­spi­ra­tion of styles they love. It’s a great start­ing point for cre­at­ing their per­fect look. Of course, Pin­ter­est is a great source for wed­ding styles, but I also love look­ing to the red car­pet for ideas. That is where you will find the new­est and hottest looks—the stars are al­ways wear­ing what’s ul­tra-fash­ion­able.”

What spe­cial care do you need to take with hair lead­ing up to your wed­ding day?

“Your stylist should help make your hair plan at least six months prewed­ding to en­sure it is in peak con­di­tion. Colour or high­lights should be done one week prior to the wed­ding. Reg­u­lar trims and treat­ments should be done ev­ery six weeks lead­ing up to the date. Home care is also cru­cial—a nour­ish­ing shampoo, conditioner and treat­ments will en­sure your hair looks and feels its best!”
