The 7 Bridal Hair Mistakes To Avoid for 2019
It’s every bride’s worst nightmare. The big day comes along, your dress is perfect, the guests are here, everything is going smoothly, but your hair just isn’t quite right.
Bridal hairstylist Jenny Dold from Pinned By Jenny is here to share the 7 most common bridal hair mistakes to avoid!
Not Doing A Hair Trial
A trial is a must-have to make sure we choose the right style for you and your bridesmaids. This also allows the morning to run as smoothly as possible.
Not Consulting The Weather
What’s the weather going to be like? Some styles can depend on the weather. For example if it’s raining and windy I would recommend to go for an updo instead of the hair being down. This will stay in all day and you won’t need to worry about the weather.
Not Considering The Dress
It seems so obvious, but it’s so common for brides-to-be to choose a hairstyle without thinking about complimenting the dress. For example a vintage style dress might suit classic Hollywood waves finished of with a headband.
As a hairstylist I always recommend hair accessories for the bride, bridesmaid and flower girls. This is a great way to get that extra special look for your big day and finishes of the look perfectly. Fresh flowers give a lovely finish, you can ask your florist to prepare them for on the day.
Not Knowing Your Hair Type
If you have short or fine hair or just want a fuller look, hair extensions are a great way to add length and volume. Your hairstylist can help you choose the best look for your hair type if you’re unsure.
I recommend my clients to have a fresh colour a week before your wedding day to allow the colour to settle nicely. Depending on the style and your hair type I always recommend to wash your hair the day before. A professional blow dry the day before is a great way to to get that extra shine for the perfect finish.
Not Getting Inspiration
Don’t underestimate the power of inspiration. Consult Pinterest, Instagram and bridal magazines to help get a better idea of the look you want to create. Giving examples to your hairstylist can help to achieve the style you want.
