The Hair Essentials

As soon as you decide on a date for your wedding, schedule your hair appointments! Even if you have no idea what you want for your hairstyle or for the rest of your party, appointments fill up, especia

lly if you want them done away from the salon at your home or hotel.

Over the next few weeks, we will examine many aspects of hairstyles as well as highlight a few recent style favorites. *Before we explore specific looks, consider buying a button down shirt , as seen here by Mindy Weiss. This can be a great asset to your hair appointments before and after your wedding day. I know I’ve had a wonderful up-do ruined by wearing a shirt that was even v-necked. Hair and makeup is best preserved while donning this type of blouse.

Once you have this essential accessory, you are ready to follow the introductory steps that will ensure you and your bridesmaids have “great hair days” on your special day!

Step #1: Know your length

· You will need a style for yourself and the rest of your bridal party, so talk to your bridal party on their expected hair lengths. If you want your bridesmaids to have a similar look, make sure it is something that will work for all of the girls!

Step #2: Decide on a style

· Next, decide if you want a person’s hair up or down, and then later, move on to specific styles. Many hair salons will schedule consultations so that you can approve your do before your wedding day. This will allow you to know the time each style will take so that you know how many stylists are required.

Step #3: Choose your Accessories

· This is very important, especially if you intend to incorporate a veil into your hair. Veils can be attached to a comb or tiara to ease its placement into your hair. If you do not choose to wear a veil, or if you would like other members in your bridal party to have accessories, consider fresh flowers or jewels! These can be great accents to a beautiful style

Once you have these three basic steps down, you will have covered the hair essentials. Next week, we will examine a few specific styles as well as some DIY styles to try if one of the ladies in your bridal party has some hair experience. In the meantime, if you have any pictures of styles you are interested in, please post them so we can see what other brides are considering!
