Hair, gown, veil and makeup! These are the integral essentials for every bride. It is said that hair is a woman’s crown. Therefore, it must look good always and it’s best on the wedding day. Just like many other ladies around, you might not have a makeup artist or a hair stylist because of the numerous Do-it-yourself styles. Consequently, you will have to spend a lot of time finding the best hair stylist. There are many factors to have in mind when selecting a hair stylist. However, the main factors include:
- Salon’s bridal portfolio
You should find a salon or a stylist with a remarkable portfolio on bridal hair styling. You can obtain this information by checking and contacting their references and also viewing their reviews if they have an online presence. Previous user experiences will guide you when selecting hair stylists.
Once you are convinced with the services on a stylist’s profile, you can contact them. Include a quote within your budget for assurance on their willingness to take up the job as well as their availability.
- Trial and consultation
You must consult your hairstylist on trial and the set a trial date at least 2 months before your wedding day. Makeup trials could also be done within that time. During this time, you will also understand your hair stylist or change the stylist when you are uncomfortable or unimpressed by their services.
The most trusted hair salon offer comprehensive consultation for their clients before and after the styling trial.
Even with a big portfolio, a stylist may lack creativity. Consult with the stylist on the hair styles they have. Your hairstyle and the bridesmaids’ hairstyles should be done with a lot of creativity. All wedding teams should look ravishing on your wedding day. Stealing the limelight is the bride’s role and therefore, you should consider having a creative stylist while at it.
Through testimonials and reviews, you can find out if the salon and the stylists are trustworthy. If you have any second thoughts, then you must reconsider your choices. A hairdresser offering hair styling and makeup may be dishonest one part because the two are entirely different professions. Unless the stylists prove themselves otherwise, seek different hairstylists and makeup artists for your wedding.
Honesty on the quality of oils used should also be considered. You do not wish to get burnt skin or bad hair and skin during your wedding day. Advice on time for styling, how long the style will hold and the comfort of the style should be discussed truthfully.
- Time management
Your hair salon and the stylists should keep time on your wedding day. Strict timetables for you and your bridesmaids will be set for hair and makeup and they must be adhered to. Lateness on the part of the stylist may affect the whole schedule. You may make this easier by having the timetables sent to the hair and makeup stylists.
In conclusion, your hair styling experts should be understanding, creative and widely experienced on wedding hairstyles. Pins to hold hair in place will be in plenty and they should be fixed well. Understanding your face shape, and styling short hair as well as how the veil will he held up should all be considered. Note that it is your day and you must be dolled up magically.
