Top wedding hair tips for the best look on the day
Whether you have booked your wedding photography in Leeds or anywhere else, of course you want to look your best on your big day.
Clearly, your wedding hair is a key part of this, so here are our tips and tricks for looking immaculate. After all, this is the hair style that will be recorded in your wedding photos to create your memories for the years of marriage ahead.
• Planning ahead. Is your hair coloured or otherwise treated? Get this done a minimum of a month in advance. This will give your style a more natural, softer appearance. What’s more, if the treatment doesn’t go to plan, you have time in hand to put things right.
• Timing is everything – and remember to loosen up! On the day, don’t have your hair pulled back so tightly it hurts, and don’t get it done too early in the day.
• You won’t want an actual cut on or immediately before your wedding day, when it’s all about styling your locks. So get a trim a few weeks in advance to tidy up your hair and get rid of split ends. Then it’s done!
• As ever, shop around and don’t plump for the first wedding hair stylist you come across. You may be able to find a salon specialising in the kind of look you wish to have.
This is not the same as an everyday hairdo, so don’t feel obliged to stay with your regular stylist. And don’t rule out doing your own hair, if you feel up to it and able to take the stress if anything goes wrong! But have a friend on hand to give you an honest opinion if you go down this route – and practice first!
Finally, it may sound obvious but stay true to the real you. Don’t let your hairstyle make you into someone you are not – and don’t have it so complicated that it’s another thing to fret about on the day. Clearly, whatever you choose also needs to stay firmly in place all day.
If you have any concerns about your hair and how it will look in the photos, chat to your wedding photographer, who should be able to put your mind at rest.
