Know About Wedding Hair
Of all of the days in your life, there is not one day that is more important and that will be more memorable than your wedding day. Not only is it tremendously exciting that you are marrying your soul mate, but this is your chance to primp and make yourself up like you never have before. Part of that means hiring some true professionals to work on your hair and your skin. This only makes perfect sense since all eyes will be on you as you walk down the aisle and stand in front of all of your special guests. Also, keep in mind that the camera is going to be pointed at you most of the day and you want to be able to look back at your pictures and know that you did everything you could to look absolutely fabulous. There are many more elements than you might think to making sure that your hair is absolutely perfect for your big day. Let’s talk about that a bit.
There is something that you need to know as you seeking out a really quality professional hair stylist. The really good ones are in really high demand so the earlier that you start looking for a professional the better. Keep in mind that a professional hair stylist can provide you with expertise in so many different ways. For one, you may not even have any idea of what style you want your hair to be in on your special day. Someone who has a lot of experience with weddings will. And even if you do have some ideas, they may not be right for you and specifically for your hair. There have been a lot of brides who have cut out some pictures from wedding magazines only to find out that their hair won’t support such a style. That is where an expert can come in and be a huge help.
In terms of where to find the perfect stylist for you, well, there are different schools of thought on that subject. One thing is certain, you need to find someone who specializes in bridal hair. Don’t just ask the person who does your highlights every six weeks. You need someone who has dealt with a steady diet of brides. There is that perfect hair stylist for you, you just need to find them. A great source of recommendations can come from your wedding vendors that you have already hired. For instance, if you have already hired your photographer, ask them if they know of any top notch hair stylists that you could check into.
It is very helpful to be able to sit back and talk things out with someone who knows what they are talking about and even experiment with what your hair will allow you to do. That is why it can be extremely helpful to schedule a consultation and a trial with a professional hair stylist. You will want to get on top of this as soon as possible. The consultation will allow you to really sit down and think about what might look best and at the same time discuss it with a professional who really knows what will work and what will not. You can also talk about your hair accessories. Items like a veil will affect what style you end up choosing. Once you have mad e a decision on a style, the trial portion will not only allow you to see if that style will work for you, but also whether the stylist who crafted it is the one that you want to hire. If you find that all goes well and you absolutely love their recommendations and their execution of the style you discussed, then you have found your professional for your big day. If you find out hat this is not the person for you, then there is still time to keep searching.
In the days leading up to your wedding day, make sure that you understand exactly the shape that your hair should be in so that your stylist can work their magic. If you will be using hair extensions in order to either add length or volume to your hair, then you will want to be sure and schedule what is called a retabbing appointment in the week leading up to your big day. The same goes for highlights if you are going to be getting those. In terms of your wedding day preparation, have a long discussion with your stylist as to what you can do and what you should not do. For instance, it is kind of a rule of thumb that if you will be wearing your hair down, you can wash it the morning of your wedding. If you are going to wear it up, you should wash it the night before. But again, make sure you ask your hairdresser because they know what they are going to do to your hair in order to make everything work. You can pull this off with some help from a friend.
