How to Get the Amazing Wedding Hair to Look Gorgeous?

Your wedding day is meant to be the best day of your life. It’s the one time where all eyes are literally on you. We of course therefore understand you want to look flawless and that your hair style plays a big factor to achieving this.

Whether you decide to opt for an updo or to wear your hair down, every bride needs to ensure this look is carried out in a relaxed atmosphere.  Looking good for a wedding is always a bit of a puzzle. You want to look the best you can, but you don’t want to go over the top and upstage the bride.

Whether you are having an updo or choosing to keep your hair blow-dried and down, it is essential to book yourself in for a wedding hair trial appointment with your hairdresser.

It always helps me to gain an understanding of your vision if you bring pictures to this trial session, including any hairstyles you have seen that you like, hair accessories you have purchased or have seen pictures of, and also your dress if you have this chosen. By bringing these with you to your trial it really helps me find a style that will work for you.

1. Trim your hair to grow your hair.

We know, we know, you've heard it a million times — because it works. If you don't regularly cut the ends, they split, which can weaken them, causing breakage higher up the shaft.

2. Deep condition.

Slather on a treatment mask for 10 to 30 minutes once a week to strengthen and soften. Tip: Adding a little heat from your blow-dryer while you condition helps it penetrate! 

3. Take your vitamins.

Celebs swear by Viviscal a hair-growth supplement with biotin, minerals, and marine proteins. Hair grows about a quarter of an inch a month, but Viviscal can double that.

4. Change your pillowcase.

Regular cotton absorbs moisture and causes friction, which pulls on your hair and causes tangles but if you switch to sateen, you'll have much smoother hair
in the morning.

5. Cool down on heat.

Just because a flatiron goes up to 450 degrees doesn't mean you should. No one but a pro should use more than 375 degrees on your hair. 

6. Upgrade your blow-dryer.

Switch to a high-powered ionic model, which alters the "charge" of your hair, making it smoother and shinier, and can reduce drying time.

7. Shine on.

In-salon gloss treatments leave a coating that "reflects light and looks amazing in photos," says Townsend.

8. Smooth it out.

Got frizz? With in-salon keratin treatments, your stylist applies a solution, and then uses a flatiron to seal it in, leaving hair significantly smoother. Try it a few months out to make sure you like how it looks. Then schedule a session one week before your wedding.
