Plan­ning your hair style for a wed­ding or prom? Sharon Zagni has some stun­ning ideas

EDP Norfolk - - Inside -

IF YOU’RE plan­ning on get­ting mar­ried soon or you’re go­ing to a prom night you’ll be con­sid­er­ing which hair style is best for you. We’ve re­cently been busy in the sa­lon look­ing at the lat­est cat­walk hair trends for 2017 for your big day.

The nat­u­ral ‘hair down’ looks stun­ning – keep it as nat­u­ral as pos­si­ble adding beau­ti­ful hair ac­ces­sories that com­ple­ment the gown.

Also loving the slightly ‘messy’ look of the un­done plait – ideal for proms and wed­dings, bride or brides­maids.

The ‘clas­sic bun’ al­ways looks ro­man­tic and grace­ful and the ‘messy bun’ is the lat­est take on an easy laid-back up-do and fre­quently seen on the red car­pet.

I would al­ways rec­om­mend go­ing to a pro­fes­sional hair stylist prior to any big day and you can of course talk to him/ her about adapt­ing any one of the lat­est cat­walk hair trends. The place to try it out is ob­vi­ously at your hair trial as the last thing you will want is to ex­per­i­ment on the day of your wed­ding! FIVE TOP TIPS Get pin­ning! There is so much in­spi­ra­tion 1 on­line for your bridal/ prom hair and beauty look and Pinterest is the holy grail for wed­ding plan­ning in gen­eral. We use it a lot in the sa­lon dur­ing our con­sul­ta­tions. Where to be­gin Ask your­self: How do I 2 nor­mally wear my hair? There are no rules – if you feel com­fort­able wear­ing it down then wear it down! There are so many clever things your hairdresser can do to still make it look spe­cial.

How much make-up do I wear ev­ery day? You don’t have to wear ‘stage’ make-up just be­cause it’s your wed­ding day, I prom­ise.

What’s the venue like? You can get away with a more in­tense make-up look in can­dle­light or cer­e­monies later in the day.

What’s my dress style? Is it ro­man­tic or glam­orous? Is the de­tail around there neck­line? This all helps guide your hair and make-up look. Prep prep prep – your stylist is tal­ented, but not a ma­gi­cian Drink­ing lots of wa­ter, 3 get­ting reg­u­lar hair trims, go­ing some­where rep­utable to have your brows shaped and hav­ing a cou­ple of fa­cials are all go­ing to help you look your best. How to pre­pare for your hair and make-up trial Wash your hair the 4 night be­fore; don’t use straight­en­ers as it makes it harder to re-style. I find it re­ally help­ful if the bride turns up with her reg­u­lar make-up on, or a re­cent photo, so I can get an idea of what kind of make-up she feels com­fort­able wear­ing. What to bring to your trial and when to book it Book your trial af­ter you’ve 5 bought the dress, as it guides the whole look, and bring a pic­ture with you. Plan the trial one to three months be­fore the wed­ding date. If you have hair ac­ces­sories or a veil these are help­ful to bring but don’t worry if you haven’t de­cided on them yet.

Af­ter the trial keep it on for a while and take a look at it in dif­fer­ent light and mir­rors. Be open-minded and re­cep­tive to new ideas and sug­ges­tions from your stylist.

Dif­fer­ent: Choose the style that works for you
