Happy Monday my loves and welcome to “Confessions of a Hair Stylist” Wedding Day Stylist. This week we will be discussing something’s you need to keep in mind when searching for a stylist for your wedding day. I have taken some time to talk to a few seasoned stylist who have over 25 years of combined experience in the industry and not to mention grace the heads of many brides. I have the pleasure of working with these wonderful ladies of whom you will have the pleasure of meeting in future posts. We have taken the time to comprise a list of tips, do and don’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 to finding the perfect stylist for you on your day. Take note ladies, this advice is coming straight from the professionals.

1. Make a list of styles – Put together a list of styles you want to try for this day, with social media and online magazines this should be easy. Put together a hair portfolio to take along with you when meeting with your stylist. Voice your opinion on what you’re want and or willing to try.

2. Do your research – Search around for different stylist, ask questions and be sure to ask friends for referrals. If you know of a recent bride who had a wonderful “hair” experience reach out to that person and speak with her about the experience and what made it so great.

3. Select Stylist “Trial/Error” – From your list of stylist, select 3-5 stylist of your liking and book consultations with each. During this process find out what’s all included in your consultation and be sure to go prepared with your pictures and questions you have. Ask to see pictures of previous brides as well.

4. Searching for a stylist who understands brides – This is vital and key when it comes to searching for someone to execute exactly what you are wanting. This is usually a stressful time for a bride so someone who listens to your wants and needs, willing to pamper you and more importantly one who has your best interest in mind.

Something’s to also keep in mind while searching is to make sure the stylist of your choice is a good listener, and open to your ideas and willing to cater to your needs on your day.
