Whether you're saying "I do" or will be there to support the happy couple, you want your hair to look amazing! Here's some tips to prep your hair for the big day.
Getting a style?
-Arrive with your hair completely dry. Your style will not hold on wet or damp hair. If we need to blowdry your hair we will spend more time drying and less time creating a style you love! It could also make us run late and we don't want that...
-Having a clean scalp free of product and oil build up is important. A style will not hold on dirty hair. You know your hair best. For most, "clean" hair can be achieved by washing the night before or morning of the wedding.
-When washing I recommend doing a good shampoo (2x do a good scrub to really clean the scalp, make sure you get underneath and over the ears too!) You can condition your ends but try to avoid the roots and rinse well. PLEASE avoid using hotel room toiletries. Blow-dry as smooth as you can with a paddle or round brush with your regular styling products.
-If you have naturally curly hair and want to wear your curls in your style pay attention to the day after washing that your curls look their best and try to coordinate with the wedding day. Use your regular styling products and we can touch up any unruly hairs to mimic your natural curl pattern.
_ If you have naturally curly hair and want a sleek, smooth or straighter looking style then you need to blowout as smooth as possible prior to your appointment.
-Part your hair where you think you’d most likely want to style for the wedding day. Once your hair dries in a certain part it's rough to switch it.
-Try to leave it down to avoid creases or flatness from a ponytail.
Getting a Blowdry Only?
- Do a good shampoo prior to your appointment (2x do a good scrub to really clean the scalp) You can condition your ends but try to avoid the roots and rinse well. PLEASE avoid using hotel room toiletries.
- For best results wash hair as close to your appointment time as possible so you can arrive with wet hair. If this is not possible make sure to comb to prevent tangling and comb your hair in the direction you prefer for it to be styled.
Prep is important. The better you prep, the more time we have to create and the better the end style will be!
