How to Prepare your Hair for the Trial Run & Wedding Day

How to prepare your hair for your big day. This also includes bridesmaids hair. We’ve been asked these questions so many times so thought it was time to answer them and send them to all our future brides before their big day. It helps you and helps us:)

  1. Wash and condition your hair the night before your trial run. Day old hair is the best to work with. If your hair tends to get oily, stringy or greasy please wash the day of…
  2. Don’t use shampoos or conditioners with silicones. Silicones make your hair slippery and weighed down. Not the best thing for bridal hairstyles and updos. We need a little texture to give you the best results. You should apply or use a product that will give your hair texture and body. ( btw professional shampoos/conditioners make a world of difference)
  3. Please don’t use any hair serums or smoothing oils and creams. Again, this will weigh your hair down. If you desire long lasting curls, volume and teasing that last all day…..stay away from these products.
  4. Do not wear any elastics, scrunchies or hair clips the night before or the day of your appt. Those little indents can make it difficult for hair styling.
  5. Please don’t flat iron your hair the day of your appt or the night before.
  6. If you plan on using hair extensions on your wedding day – please bring them with you or have them in for your trial run.  Make sure they are clean, dry and brushed. Please Remember it cost extra for hair extension placement.
  7. If you don’t have thick or textured hair think about putting some hair extensions in and especially if the style you are wanting for your wedding requires thick voluminous hair. 
  8. Please bring your veil or head piece with you for your trial run
  9. Make sure your hair is dry before your in the chair other wise there is an up charge:)
  10. Please let us know if anyone has extra long or thick hair…this helps in our scheduling the correct time frame
  11. Please send pictures of yourself and the bridal hair styles you are thinking of for your wedding
  12. Wear a button up shirt or the same color shirt as your wedding dress:)
