To help you get the most from your wedding hair trial.
1. Do Your Research:
Begin by exploring different wedding hairstyles that resonate with your personal style and complement your dress. Collect images for inspiration, considering factors like the venue, theme, and dress style/neckline.
2. Book Well in Advance:
Schedule your wedding hair trial well ahead of your wedding date (once you have chosen your wedding dress you can start planning your trial ) This allows time for adjustments, trying different styles if needed and time for hair to grow if needed.
3. Come Prepared:
Bring any accessories you plan to wear on your wedding day, such as veils, hairpins, tiaras, earrings or Necklace. This helps your hairstylist incorporate these elements seamlessly into the chosen hairstyle.
4. Wash Your Hair the Night Before:
Clean, dry hair provides the best canvas for styling.
Wash your hair the night before your trial ( Shampoo twice!) to ensure it’s free of excess oils and product residue. Style your hair as you would do at home for a night out.
If there is a product such as an anti-frizz product that you always use then use that product in your prep.
Don’t over straighten your hair as this can shut down the cuticle and make curing the hair difficult.
Avoid treatments for 10 days prior as they can weigh down the hair.
5. Wear a top with a similer neckline and colour to your dress:
This will help you visualise the hairstyle with your dress and how it will look against the neck line.
6. Communicate Clearly:
Clearly articulate your preferences to your hairstylist. Discuss the theme of your wedding, the overall aesthetic, and any specific details you have in mind. Be open to their suggestions, as they bring valuable expertise to the table.
7. Bring Inspiration Images:
Show your hairstylist the images you’ve collected during your research. This visual aid ensures a shared understanding of the desired look and helps in making any necessary adjustments.
8. Consider Your Venue and Weather:
Keep your wedding venue and anticipated weather conditions in mind when selecting a hairstyle. If you’re having an outdoor summer wedding, for example, you might opt for a style that can withstand the heat.
9. Be Honest and Open to Adjustments:
If something doesn’t feel right during the trial, don’t hesitate to communicate with your hairstylist. Honest feedback allows them to make necessary adjustments, ensuring you’re completely satisfied with the final result.
By following these steps, brides can approach their wedding hair trial with confidence, ensuring a collaborative and enjoyable experience. Remember, the trial is not just about perfecting the hairstyle but also about building a relationship with your hairstylist and setting the stage for the beautiful bridal look you’ve always dreamed of.
