I have the pleasure of working with these wonderful ladies of whom you will haveÂ the pleasure of meeting in future posts. We have taken the time to comprise a list of tips, do andÂ donâ€™ts when it comes to choosing a wedding stylist as well as wedding day hair.
This week the ladies have put together a little list of things to look for and do when it comes toÂ finding the perfect stylist for you on your day. Take note ladies, this advice is coming straightÂ from the professionals.
1. Make a list of styles â€“ Put together a list of styles you want to try for this day, with social mediaÂ and online magazines this should be easy. Put together a hair portfolio to take along with youÂ when meeting with your stylist. Voice your opinion on what youâ€™re want and or willing to try.
2. Do your research â€“ Search around for different stylist, ask questions and be sure to ask friendsÂ for referrals. If you know of a recent bride who had a wonderful â€œhairâ€ experience reach out to thatÂ person and speak with her about the experience and what made it so great.
3. Select Stylist â€œTrial/Errorâ€ â€“ From your list of stylist, select 3-5 stylist of your liking and bookÂ consultations with each. During this process find out whatâ€™s all included in your consultationÂ and be sure to go prepared with your pictures and questions you have. Ask to see pictures ofÂ previous brides as well.
4. Searching for a stylist who understands brides â€“ This is vital and key when it comes to searchingÂ for someone to execute exactly what you are wanting. This is usually a stressful time for a brideÂ so someone who listens to your wants and needs, willing to pamper you and more importantlyÂ one who has your best interest in mind.
Somethingâ€™s to also keep in mind while searching is to make sure the stylist ofÂ your choice is a good listener, and open to your ideas and willing to cater to yourÂ needs on your day.
