You and Your Wedding - - Look Amazing -

Make sure your w-day stylist has a beau­ti­ful mane to work their magic on. Our team of testers tried out three high-end treat­ments to en­hance your locks ahead of the big day

BEST FOR... BAN­ISH­ING FRIZZ

72 Hair Smooth­ing Treat­ment, from £150, avail­able at Ken­na­land, Lon­don, and Rush sa­lons na­tion­wide Ar­riv­ing at the salon with my friz­zprone hair tied in a top­knot, I had a brief chat with my stylist about what I was af­ter – not poker-straight hair, just a smoother ver­sion of my own mop. The treat­ment be­gan with two sham­poos and then the for­mula was ap­plied, combed through, and left on for 20 min­utes while I sipped a cup of tea. My hair was then blow-dried and the treat­ment sealed in with hair straight­en­ers. The re­sult was wonderful; I ac­tu­ally looked like I knew my way around a hairdryer – the per­fect treat­ment to ban­ish that halo of frizz. Peta Hunt, edi­tor-at-large

BEST FOR… COLOUR VIR­GINS

Balayage treat­ment, from £250, avail­able at Hiro Miyoshi Hair & Beauty, May­fair I have a con­fes­sion; I’m a hair­colour­ing novice. Be­fore step­ping into Hiro’s salon, I’d never touched the hue of my hair. As a child, I re­sem­bled the Milky­bar Kid but as I grew up, it got grad­u­ally darker. Af­ter de­cid­ing to go back to blonde, I booked in with Hiro. He im­me­di­ately knew which shades I would suit. As I was new to the colour­ing game, he sug­gested I go for some­thing sub­tle. Hap­pily, I left the salon with brighter, blon­der hair, but still looked like my­self. It was nat­u­ral, shiny and, best of all, in beau­ti­ful con­di­tion. Me­lanie Macleod, con­tent writer

BEST FOR… BOOST­ING YOUR HAIR

7-Day Vol­umeze Blow Dry and ex­ten­sions, from £350, avail­able at Stephanie Pol­lard, Lon­don ,·P!FXUVHG!ZLWK!VXSHU"ÀQH!KDLU!DQG! am on a lifetime mis­sion to give it a boost, with­out look­ing WAG­tas­tic. The tape ex­ten­sions – which are matched to your colour af­ter a con­sul­ta­tion – are at­tached safely to your own hair us­ing ker­atin resin, and stay in for 10-12 weeks. If you want more hair to play with for your w-day hair­style and hon­ey­moon, this is the ideal op­tion. I didn’t have to wrap my hair­band around my pony­tail four times any longer! The only down­side of hav­ing these amaz­ing ex­ten­sions: your own hair just might not be enough any more. Zoë Burke, con­tent writer
