The Bride's Survival Guide: Wedding Hair


One of the most important things in a bride is her hair on her bid day. Her crowning glory should be as perfect as her makeup and her wedding gown. A hair that is not well-styled will bring stress and heartaches to brides.

Just to help you get started, below are some of the things you need to consider to ensure that your wedding hair will be as perfect as ever.

Things To Consider When Planning For Your Wedding Hair

Here are some of the things you have to consider when planning for your wedding hair:

  • Think about hair trial

This may add to your expense but it will be worth it. You would not want a hairstyle that you will try the first time on the wedding day. If your hair is already fixed, you have no choice but to bear with it even if it does not suit you at all.

  • Consider the weather

If the weather is too hot, it is best if you set your hair up and avoid too many hair styling products like spray net or hair lotion. Make your hair styled according to the weather so it will not only give you good looks but comfort too.

  • Be honest to your hairstylist

During the trial session, you need not please your hairstylist by telling them lies, like you like your hair, it is perfect and other superlatives. Be honest and make sure that he/she understands what you want. If you are not happy with the hairstyle, tell it upfront. Your stylist will follow as you command, and will believe whatever it is that you claim, so be honest.



  • Take as much time as you need

Do not rush and find the right hairstyle for your wedding early. Plan for this, months before the big day. Your hair may grow but not long enough to make your chosen hairstyle affected.

  • Do not consider too many wedding hair options

For sure, there are hundreds even thousands of wedding hair options to check out. But deciding with too many photos in front of you may give you a harder time to decide which is best to consider.

  • Choose the right hairstylist

There are many hairstylists around you can hire but not all of them suite your requirements. Below are things you must consider when hiring a hairstylist.

Things To Look For In A Hairstylist

Have you decided on who among the many hairstylists in your locality to hire? If not, this can help you find the best one for you.

  • Ask around

You are not the first person in your circle getting married, asking for suggestions from your family or friends on the best hairstylist to hire is a good idea. When asking around expect two things, they will either encourage or discourage you from hiring a particular hairstylist.

Ask around and make sure to take their suggestions into account.

  • Let him/her do a hairstyle trial


Ask him/her to give you her best do. If you are satisfied with it, well and good, if not, you may want to give them another chance. The trial session should not oblige you from hiring a specific hairstylist.

Some hairstylists give this service free of charge and taking advantage of this free service is a good idea.

  • Speak to her/him

Being comfortable with your stylist is necessary. You need to find a stylist that you will find comfort and confidence in speaking your mind. He/she will play a huge role in your wedding, thus hiring someone you can treat like a friend is a must.

Set up an appointment out of his/her parlor and see how comfortable you could get.

  • Check their prices and packages

Not all stylists give their services at a high cost, and not all expensive stylists are doing well. Choose the stylist that can offer their rates at a good price and provide high-quality service.

Note: Do not compare prices of new stylists from tenure ones as experience must be paid.

You may have a regular hair cutter but that does not mean that he/she will do well in styling. Choosing the right hairstylist for your wedding is as important as anyone else at your wedding.
