How to Prepare for your Wedding Day Hair Appointment

Hello Bride-to-Be Beauties!  The day has arrived and it’s time to sit in the chair.   Here’s a couple of “Day Of”  tips for you to make sure everything goes smoothly and that you are ultra satisfied with your end result. 

Are you are READY?

Hopefully you had you’re makeup trial prior to today so you should have your style nailed down.  If you had your trial with us your stylist took many notes and photos at your trial so she’ll be very well prepared.  If you still have some last minute thoughts for your look bring a couple (no more than two) inspiration pics with you.  Limiting the inspiration pics to just a couple will really help your stylist hone in on your finished look.

Hair washing… should you wash your hair on your wedding day.  If you’re a product junkie that usually goes 3-4 days between washing then the answer is YES!  What you want to do every day is your choice, but we are talking about wedding day prep.  The best rule of thumb for washing  is for your hair to be not more than one day dirty, washing your hair the morning of or the night before is absolutely acceptable.  It’s not the washing that will affect your style it’s how you dry.


I know I know, so much prep and you’re wondering why you can’t just take the “easy” way out and flat iron your hair to make it “smooth”. Well this is a fine idea if you want your end result to be flat ironed, but if you want your hair curled or up your going to miss the mark. When hair is flat ironed your temporally telling your cuticle “stay straight don’t move”. A stylist, cannot then go back and manipulate a curl OR get a curl to stay or hold. Just don’t…

Blow dry your hair, and make sure it is bone dry before your stylist arrives.  Damp hair will singe when curling iron hits it, so dry dry dry!  Yes, I know, you’re about to get your hair done, but a proper blowout, even one that you do yourself will smooth your cuticle and give you shine. Smoothing the cuticle while it’s wet gives your hair a better chance of manipulating the curl size and style you want? Smoothing the cuticle with a brush and blow-dryer will also leave your hair with a luster that it so beautiful and model perfect. If you have damaged ends or haven’t had a trim because you’ve been growing your hair out, the blow out will give your stylist the opportunity to hide that damage while styling your hair. The biggest no no for wet hair is to throw it up in a bun or clip and let it air dry. Letting your hair air dry this way will give you a big beautiful dent, how pretty for your wedding day!

Bonus tip!  Remember to wear a blouse that buttons down the front so nothing has to be pulled over your hair once it’s done.
