You may be dressing up the lehenga of your dreams, dear bride-to-be, but we all know that your hair can seriously make or break your look. A fabulous hairstyle can really pull your whole look for a wedding day style that is so on point. So, to ensure you look and feel nothing short of a beautiful princess on your big day, here are some important wedding hair dos and don’ts to keep in mind. Parade your crowning glory to perfection, girl!
1. DO Pick Your Outfit First
You need to say yes to the dress/ lehenga first and then plan your hair and makeup around it, not vice versa. You can zero in on a hairstyle and judge whether you want to wear your hair up or down depending on the neckline, back and cut of your outfit.
2. DON’T Assume Your Usual Stylist Is The Best Choice
You may love the way your hair stylist gives you the haircut, but he/she may not be the best choice for your special day. He/ she may not be too familiar with wedding styling. There are millions of stylists out there who specialize in wedding looks and have more experience when it comes to styling specifically for brides.
3. DO Have A Hair Trial
Before reserving a bridal hairstylist, make sure you can have a trial in advance so there are no surprises on the big day. Have a trial session a month or so in advance so you can experiment with a couple of styles and hair accessories, to know what suits you and your outfit best. This way, you can be confident that you’ll look amazing.
4. DON’T Forget About The Climate
Heat and humidity are the basic things to consider when planning your hair look. If you’re having a beach wedding or know there will be high humidity levels, it’s a better idea to have your hair in a loose braid or up do, instead of leaving it down. This is because humidity WILL cause frizz, no matter how much hairspray you use.
5. DO Consider Extensions
Clip-in pieces are an easy and the best way of adding length and fullness. If your hair isn’t long enough or you want more length or volume for a particular look, it’s a good idea to ask your stylist about extensions. But only go for it if you feel confident and comfortable wearing them.
