BRIDAL HAIR T IPS
Do you want a formal updo, something loose and flowing or a vintage creation?
It pays to browse magazines and the internet before you go to your hair stylist for your bridal hair trial so that you have some idea in mind of styles you like. They may not all be suitable for you, your dress or the location of your wedding, but they will help your stylist to determine your likes and dislikes.
It’s also a good idea to take a photo of your dress along for your hair trial. Your stylist can take inspiration from the gown’s design. After all, if you have a drop-dead back to your gown, you don’t want it covered by long hair left loose!
If you recently attended a function and had your hair done just the way you like it, and you’d like to replicate that style, take along a clear photo of you as you were on the night.
If you’ve already purchased a hair accessory, such as a tiara or diamond clip, then it should be taken along to your trial too. Some accessories, such as a birdcage veil or tiara, will help guide the stylist into a suitable style to showcase that accessory. This is particularly important if the piece has wow factor, or is an heirloom.
Discuss your venue with your stylist, too. Outdoor venues can wreak havoc on some styles if there’s a bit of wind!
Be assured that a good stylist will work with you to determine the right style for you, your dress and your venue. They may suggest a fresh cut or adding highlights…be open to their suggestions. Remember that the majority of stylists have done this before.
