This weekâ€™s post is dedicated to the importance of a hair trial(s) before your wedding day. Weâ€™veÂ touched on this subject a bit in our last post â€˜Wedding Day Stylistâ€™ and things to look for when choosing.
Well, now you are at the point of having a few stylists in mind and run into the dilemma of choosing the perfect stylist for you.Â This is where our beauty professionals come in with a mini guide to successfully get you through hair trialsÂ with your list of stylist. Remember this is a trial, so you will want to commence as if this were the big dayÂ so plan accordingly by bringing your veil and or any hair accessories that will be part of that day. Here isÂ where you bring in pictures of what you desire and really dive into the vision of what you are wanting.
1. Being straight forward â€“ Here is where you need NOT hold back! Being honest with yourÂ stylist will make the biggest difference in the world and relieve so much stress. According toÂ my beauty professionals, honesty is key with any styling, let alone one of the most importantÂ days of your life. Let him/her know what your vision is, bring in pictures (digital if available) ofÂ what you want. You will be surprised to know that most brides try out a few styles before theyÂ actually chose one.
2. Bring it in â€“ If itâ€™s a part of the day then bring it in, as in pictures of your dress, hairÂ accessories, & veils earrings. These are things you want figured out so that they donâ€™tÂ become a hassle on your wedding day. This helps bring your vision to life & will certainly helpÂ you pick which styles best suits you & your ensemble.
3. Photo Shoot â€“ Oh how we love â€œselfiesâ€ in todayâ€™s digital/social media world? Take timeÂ out to snap a lot of shots with your wedding day hair to see if itÂ photographs well for your wedding day. This provides the opportunity for you to tweek the things you donâ€™t like.Â Who knows this may help you make theÂ decision of veil or no veil, accessories or not? The whole purpose is to have one less thing toÂ worry about on this day.
4. How long will it last â€“Â Â My beauty experts canâ€™t express enough the important of choosing a hairÂ style that will last Â for the entire day. Not only will you be running around like crazy but you haveÂ to do it and still look like a stunning bride.Â Â So try out your trial hairstyle for the Â entire day and see how well it holds up. This wayÂ you will know if the style is best for the day and the time frame you have beforeÂ hair touch-up’s is needed.
