You can always do your hair yourself if you don’t trust someone to do it for you; but if you have a special look in mind, which most women do, then the best bet is to seek professional help. I always suggest to, at least, have one dry run with your hairstylist. That way you have a chance to get used to how it looks, and you can determine how long it’s going to take to do your hair on your wedding day. Find a stylist who is going to experiment with a few different looks. If you want to wear your hair down, let the stylist with it that way. If you want it up, let them try a few styles on you.
If you find a stylist that you really like, stick with them. Also, the styles the stylist suggests are their professional opinions. It’s very important for the stylist to be honest about what styles they think will look good on you and which won’t.
Hair Do’s and Don’ts
Don’t do anything drastic the week before your wedding, because you don’t want to take any chances that the end result will be a disaster. You need 2 to 3 weeks to settle into a new hairstyle and you need a week or two for your hair to settle into a new haircut. If you color your hair, have your new color done about two weeks before the wedding. If you’re only having a tint touch up on your roots, then you can have that done the week of or a few days before your wedding. You want your color to look as fresh as possible.
Do eat before you go to the stylus. I don’t want you to faint, it has happened.
Do remember to confirm your appointment in advance.
Do get in writing the services your hairstylist will provide and what time here she will show up.
Don’t leave angry and go home and do your own hair. Make sure to let your hairstylist know if you are unhappy with the results.
