Preparing Your Hair for Your Wedding Day

Achieving stunning wedding day hair requires a little extra care and attention in the lead up to your big day. Investing in the health and condition of your hair can significantly impact its appearance and ability to hold your desired style.

Here are some essential tips to consider:

  1. Quality Hair Care: Use a high-quality salon shampoo and conditioner specifically suited to your hair type. For fine hair, avoid heavy shampoos that can weigh it down and cause build-up, resulting in flatness. A lightweight option will help maintain volume, which we all adore!

  2. Essential Nutrients: Ensure your hair receives the necessary nutrients to stay thick, healthy, and resilient. Vitamin B promotes hair thickness, growth, and prevents breakage. Zinc benefits both hair and nails, while omega-3 fish oils offer essential hydration.

  3. Treatments: Treatments are a fantastic way to nourish your hair during the early stages of wedding planning. However, it is advisable to avoid treatments in the final weeks leading up to the wedding, as hairstyles tend to last better on drier hair.

Types of Treatments:

  • Protein Treatments: Restore and strengthen your hair’s elasticity, eliminating breakage and split ends. They are particularly beneficial for porous, limp, low-elasticity, shedding, or recently colored hair.

  • Keratin/Moisture Treatments: Smoothen frizzy hair and deeply hydrate each strand from root to end. Recommended for naturally thick, dry, or curly/frizzy hair.

  1. Regular Trims: While many brides desire long hair for their wedding day, excessively long hair may not be ideal for certain hairstyles. Consider medium-length hair with layers, as they often work best with various styles. Consult with your stylist to determine the most suitable length, especially if face-framing layers are part of your desired look.

  2. Color Considerations: Hair color plays a significant role in determining the right hairstyle for you. Many brides opt for blonde hair during their hair trials as it enhances movement. If you have dark hair and desire textured looks, micro highlights can create contrast and add dimension.

  3. Timing Your Color: If you plan to lighten your hair for your wedding, allow ample time for the process. Starting as early as possible ensures your hair can handle the transformation and reach your desired color safely. Avoid making major color changes right before your wedding to ensure you feel comfortable and confident as you walk down the aisle.

  4. Clip-in Hair Extensions: Clip-in hair extensions are popular for wedding days, offering versatility for wearing your hair down or adding dimension without permanent color changes. Investing in high-quality extensions is worthwhile, and I can provide recommendations and guidance during your hair trial.
