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