These tips assume that you are going to be using your regular
hairdresser to plan your style and on your wedding day. However if
you plan to style your hair yourself, you can easily follow the
same timetable and I have added some extra tips for you.
1. Plan! Plan! Plan! The earlier you start to plan the better.
This gives you the chance to get your hair into the best condition
possible and to have practice runs with your hairdresser trying out
different styles and colours as well as trying out veils, tiaras
and flowers. Ideally start this process 6 months before.
2. Collect pictures of possible hairstyles from all different
magazines not just wedding magazines and discuss them with your
hairdresser at least 4 months before your big day.
3. Each time you go to the hairdressers to try out a potential
wedding day style take photos to help you remember what you liked
about it for future reference and take someone with you whose
opinion you can trust.
4. Make the most of what you've already got, maximize your good
points rather than going for a look that isn't really you.
5. Start weekly conditioning treatments at least 3 months before
6. Give you hair a break from harsh styling methods and equipment;
this will help with getting your hair in tip-top condition.
7. If you are having flowers in your hair have a trial run with
your hairdresser a couple of months before and make sure you have
your appointment booked for the wedding day.
8. One month before have a trial run with your veil/ tiara and
finalize with your hairdresser the style you have decided
9. If you are having an up do on the day, wash your hair the night
before as just-washed hair can be harder to manage.
10. Make sure you have an SOS kit on your big day, which you can
give to the bridesmaid with the biggest handbag! - Plenty of
hairgrips and pins in a matt colour in a shade similar to your
hair, hairbrush, tail comb, and hairspray and shine spray.
Extra tips if you are doing your hairstyling yourself
1. As well as planning your style in the months before your
wedding you need to try out various styling products so that you
can be confident that the ones you are using on the day will make
your hair look its best.
2. To avoid your hair being flat use most styling product on the
3. Hair products from the same range are designed to work
4. Have a trial run with your veil and tiara on the style you have
chosen. To fix them into your hair, use clear combs and matt grips
in a similar shade to your hair. If its practical, keep them in
your hair for a few hours to make sure they have staying power and
to avoid having a slipping veil and tiara on the day.
