Getting married is such an incredibly fun time in your life. You’ve found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, and that’s something to celebrate joyfully! Of course with that comes the pressure we put on ourselves that the wedding is PERFECT. It’s natural to want every last detail to be exactly what you want on your special day. Achieving a hair style that you love and know you’ll look back on years from your wedding day can be stressful to accomplish. Since wedding season is quickly approaching, we’ve uncovered some of our favorite tips to help you achieve the perfect hairstyle for the big day.
What did we do before Pinterest existed? As obvious as it may seem, when you’re gearing up for your wedding one of the best things to do is to create a specific Pinterest board to gain ideas and inspiration for your wedding hair. Start pinning and adding images of hairstyles that you’re really drawn to. Once you’ve gathered up quite a few images and ideas, go through to really look at the hair styles and determine the different elements about them that you really like. The more hairstyles you like and can observe, the better! Going through the images and really establishing what you like about the hair styles is a great way to have a much better handle on creating a hair style you’re sure to love for years to come. While looking at what you do like about the hair styles, make sure you’re also going through and noticing anything you don’t like about them.
Be Picky About the Hair Stylist You Choose
Choosing a true professional for your wedding hair is essential. Not only do you want to hire a hair stylist that has extensive experience working with hair, and brides, but also someone who you feel comfortable talking to. Since creating the perfect hair style for your big day is such an important event in your life, you want to choose someone you feel comfortable expressing yourself with. Working with someone you’re comfortable with will make communication much easier and successful, leading to developing a much more successful hair style for your big day.
Don’t Skip a Trial
With so many expenses leading up to a wedding it can definitely be easy to feel like you can skip a hair trial. The truth is, you do not want to skip a hair trial for your big day. During the hair trial, working with your chosen hair stylist, is the best time to communicate what you like, what you don’t like and try different looks. This is also a great time to be sure that the hair stylist you hire is someone that you’re confident is going to help create a hair style you love for your big day.
In addition to gathering inspiration and choosing a hair stylist you’re comfortable with…make sure that you’re as specific as possible when communicating with your hair stylist. Using terms like curly, wavy and classic can mean a lot of different things so the more descriptive and specific you can get when talking to your stylist the better they can understand what you’re looking for to create the perfect hair style.
