Bridal Hair Tips from a Pro | Part 2

BOOK AHEAD//

Set up appointments in advance to make sure your hair stylist is available to cater to your hair's needs. Pro Hair Stylist Brooke says,

"Choose three trials to play with, but if you're confident in a style, schedule the trial 3-5 months in advance. You want to set it in stone, leaving room for any mind changes or ideas."

KEEP HAIR HEALTHY//

Brooke says,

"If it's color, we want to make sure you reach your goal healthy and slowly."

She suggests to keep up with trims, and ask for a hair treatment before each service to bring you insurance to keep your hair happy and healthy.

BROOKE'S THREE WAYS to MAINTAIN HEALTHY HAIR//

1. Utilize the correct products for your hair type. Pro Hair Stylist Brooke suggests using Unite’s 7 Seconds Leave In Conditioner because it contains heat and UVB protection to make sure you lock in maximum moisture with maximum protection from heat and environmental damage.

2. Shampoos and conditioners play a big part in keeping your hair healthy.  Make sure your shampoo has no sulfates, which tend to weaken hair over time and wash out the hair’s natural moisture.  Hair is prone to breakage from long-term use.  Look for more botanical-based products which are efficient and healthier for your hair.

3. Brooke also recommends deep conditioning two to three times a week to build strength and lasting moisture in the hair.

PLAN AHEAD//

Pro Hair Stylist Kristy Post says,

“Book your trial a couple of months in advance with your hair stylist. Also, be prepared to bring hair inspiration photos along with a picture and/or description of your wedding dress. You should consider your hair texture, length, and your everyday go-to style when deciding your final look.”

PICK A STYLE//

Our pro says,

“If you wear your hair down all the time, you may not feel comfortable with an up-do swept away from your face.”

Your wedding day hair should compliment your natural beauty and enhance your features. Kristy encourages, “Comfort is key.”

FIND A STYLIST//

Also, remember that every hair stylist does not do up-style/wedding hair, so ask in advance or ask for a recommendation. Another option is to ask family and friends for referrals.

Kristy Post says it’s important to remember,

“Trials are for trying different styles and playing with different looks until you fall in love with one.”

CARE FOR YOUR HAIR//

Keeping your hair healthy during the months leading up to your wedding is imperative.

KRISTY POST'S THREE TIPS ON PRE-WEDDING HAIR UPKEEP//

1. Trimming the dead-ends every 6-8 weeks will prevent splitting and breakage.

2. Also, if you’re unfamiliar with glaze, ask your stylist for more information. Glazes boost dull, drab hair while adding shine. There are clear glazes or tinted ones to keep your color fresh and full of life. Glazes are my favorite way to vamp up hair.

3. Also, if you are a blonde or looking to lighten your hair worry-free without damage or breakage, Olaplex is insurance for the hair and will rebuild broken hair. It will strengthen your strands so that any lightening process is healthy.”

Add texture and interest to any up-do by teasing or with twists, braids, crimpers, ridges, or rolls.

Moving from the summer into the fall this year shows a move from the looser dos with pieces hanging about and framing the face into more taught yet still textured styles where the hair is pulled away from the faceWeather parted to either side, down the center, or slicked back entirely into a low or high placed style; this fall calls for textured up-dos.

Effortless low wavy up-dos are perfect for sometimes hot and possibly humid summer weddings.

Braids are back with a bang this season! Add braids to any style to create texture and add interest.

Wavy down styles are another popular choice for brides who prefer to wear their hair down but still want to show of their tresses with a beachy effortless feel

For this summer’s bridal styles whether done up or worn down; think wavy, beachy, braided, effortless looking styles.
