Your wedding’s coming up soon, but you still have so much to plan! From the food, to the venue, to your bouquet, your list of things to do is probably longer than the train on your dress. Luckily, we are here to help you tick off one crucial element – your hair! With the help of our hair gurus at Orbe North Adelaide, we’ve got ten top tips for making your hair look fantastic all day! Whether it’s how to keep it in one piece all day, how to make sure you get exactly what you want, or how to get that extra bit of shine – we’ve got your back!
1. Book A Trial
Be prepared by having a trial, to ensure you go into your day knowing that the style you’ve chosen will work for you and your hair type.
2. Be Realistic
Make sure you listen to your stylist as they know if what you’ve chosen will work on your hair type. This will save disappointment later during evening photographs, when your hair is straight and stringy but is supposed to be wavy and luscious.
3. Your Hair Needs A Hot Weather Policy
If you know your day is going to be 38 degrees plus then be realistic. Hairdressers can only do so much as sweat and heat will change the style when not pinned and sprayed in place.
4. Be Wind Aware
If the weather changes and its windy, maybe discuss how you could secure some of your hair away from the face if your original plan was an all down style.
5. Organise, Organise and Organise
Have any hair ornamentation with you on the day of the trial so you can see if it works with the style and looks how you want it to. This will avoid disappointment on the day.
6. Whip Your Hair Into Tip Top Shape
Give your locks the best lead up by doing lots of treatments and keeping hydrated so frizz and fuzz is at a minimum on the day.
7. Strategically Plan Your Hair Colour
Have a stylist that you see regularly and make a plan so you have the perfect colour for your big day at least two appointments before the wedding colour. This will avoid last minute damage to the hair and give you plenty of time to nail that look.
8. Be Prepared With The Right Tools
Have your beautiful bridal clutch filled with all the necessities. A handful of pins even if your hair is down, a mini hairspray and a mini shine spray. This will have you looking fabulous all day.
9. Say Yes To Help
Make sure you have a trusty maid of honour or mum to watch and learn how to put the veil in and take it out properly to not ruin the hairstyle.
10. Have The Right Products
Make sure you’ve discussed the finish of your hair look. You can have a really shiny and smooth finish, for this get yourself a great anti-humectant hairspray and shine spray. The other option is a more natural look with a romantic softness and fluffiness to it so avoid heavy strong sprays or lacquers and gravitate more towards using shiny products throughout the styling process instead of coating it in shine at the end.
