As your big day gets closer, you must start preparing far in advance, both in terms of the ceremony itself and your wedding hairdo.
It's never been easier to get ideas for your wedding hairstyle, thanks to Pinterest. But what about those little-known bridal hair secrets?
Below, we've compiled a list of a few of the most essential pieces of advice.
Go for a hairstylist that is an exact fit for your ideal look
Some people have had the same hairstylists since they were teenagers.
Hairstylists have their specialties and your current hairstylist may not be able to achieve the look you're going for.
If you're going for a boho look or soft half-updo but yours is known for glamorous styles, you might want to try another one instead.
Look for local hairstylists, look at their work on Instagram, set up an appointment, and don't be scared to try something new!
Hair preparation should begin the day before your wedding
Certain hairdressers recommend that you get your hair done the day before so that it is in the best shape possible on your wedding day.
Curly or frizzy hair can benefit from a professional blowout the day before, which will smooth and gloss the hair for hairstyling the next day.
Washing your hair the morning of the wedding is fine if your hair is normally soft and manageable.
Your hairdresser ought to be able to effectively prep your hair with products. Make sure you ask your stylist how to prepare your hair for the wedding during your trial to avoid any hair catastrophes on the big day.
If you want hair extensions, a hairstylist who has worked with hair extensions in the past is an excellent place to start if you're new to the process.
Pick hairstyles you're comfortable with
It's important to remember that this is your day. Your happiness, beauty, and comfort are entirely up to you.
It doesn't matter if you like to keep your hair in its natural state or if you prefer to wear a simple hairstyle. After all, true beauty comes from the inside. Weddings are a joyous and historic occasion, but they can stretch up to 12 hours or more in some cases.
Your wedding day may not be the best time to experiment with new hairstyles if you find extravagant hairstyles difficult to maintain.
Conduct a test run before the wedding
For the best results, it's essential to try out your wedding hairstyle weeks before your wedding. This way, you won't be stressed out the week before your wedding or worse, a few hours before your wedding due to last-minute issues.
Don't overwhelm your hairstylist with too many images
The best way to minimize misconceptions and confusion is to show your hairstylist images of precisely what you want.
There is no such thing as a universal definition of what constitutes an "ideal" updo or soft wave. If you have more than three or four images to choose from, you may get bogged down and lose track of what you're trying to do.
For many people, making the choice can be difficult! Your hairstylist will be able to help you think through your options and give you a visual representation of how they might appear. Most people know where they want to go before the end of their trial.
