CHOOSING THE PERFECT WEDDING HAIRSTYLE
Wedding season is upon us! I’m sure you’re excited to open up that good ol’ wedding look-book you have been working on since you were nine. You have it all figured out…the dress you must-have, what color bridesmaid dresses your girls will wear, the perfect white peonies flowers and even the wedding bands. The hard part is almost over — but you still need to decide on the perfect wedding hairstyle. Up or down? Straight or wavy? Braid or no braid? Hairpiece or not? So many details to consider!!
I highlighted 5 point that can help narrow down the search for you!
CHOOSE YOUR DRESS
Your dress will ultimately decide which hairstyle will be it for your big day. For example…If you’re wearing something with a high neckline you might like the idea of an up-do — perhaps your dress will call for your hair to be down and flowy or even something up and messy. The dress typically sets the vibes for the entire wedding so start with picking the dress and let your hairstylist help you decide the rest!
BOOK A TRIAL
Booking a trial!! I can’t stress this enough — Doing a trial just makes you so much more relaxed; the last thing you want is to be winging your hair on your wedding day. Trials are a great way to play with as many styles as needed to achieve THE LOOK and a great way to find an artist that you can trust and feel comfortable with. Plus it’s a FUN time!

Your Pinterest inspiration may be perfect but as unfortunate as it is, we aren't all blessed with thick long locks, heck some of us aren't even blessed with sleek non- frizzy hair. So, be realistic about your hair texture and length and be open to the idea of extensions and hair fillers if that’s what it takes to perfect the style.
UP-DO OR NOT
You might be head over heels for the style you choose at your trial, but be open to trying several different styles. You may love the half up/half down style but don’t rule out the idea of letting the artist show you an up-do or a side-swept style as well... you never know it may just be the one.
KEEP IT REAL
Remember you are creating a memory, and will want to look back at your wedding photos 10…20 years from now. Make sure that you are happy with your decision, and have picked a style that makes you feel like YOU. Those pictures of you standing at the altar with your husband are timeless ,so you should look timeless as well.
Make your wedding hairstyle all about you…just a more glamorous you!
