by Peter hutch

On the most important day of a bride's life, the only person who can create a hairstyle of her dreams is her hairdresser. These beautiful looks explain a comprehensive bridal hair and beauty service from a hairdressers' point of view; now available to the bride herself. Now you can choose your dress, Head dress and flowers to co-ordinate with a style that suits your hair type and texture.

Choose a wedding hair style that makes you look cute, exalted, or chic. Prior opting for a bridal hairstyle it would be better that you discuss your hairstyle with a wedding hairstyle expert so that on the final day you don't have to undergo any embarrassment. Pick a hairstyle so that you are a head turner at the wedding. Don't wait till last minute to select your hairstyle. Don't be panicky to try new hair styles just do them a few months before the wedding.

Your hair style. Don't think of your current style as a starting block for your wedding style. By adding hair extensions or a hair piece you can add volume and length and completely change your look. The beauty of a one off hair style is that you can go to much more effort than would if you had to do it every day. Also think about your wedding dress and try to match its style. The degree of formality of your dress should be matched by your hairstyle.

Take care of your hair! You should already be doing this anyway but if your hair is in poor condition then it can take 6 months to bring it back to full condition so you can't start too soon. Visit our online store to check out products that can help you here or visit your hairdresser and ask their advice. If you wish to colour your hair then you might want to consider conditioners etc that will return any moisture/condition lost to the colouring process.

Don't do anything drastic like cutting, perming or dying your hair so close to your wedding that there isn't time to correct mistakes beforehand. If you are planning a big change do it early and live with it for awhile so you can make adjustments if you need to.

Hair that is too fine and over-conditioned does not style well, so deep conditioning treatments should not be used within four days of the wedding.

Remember that some hairstyles can add inches to a bride's height, and shorter brides may want to use this to their advantage.

Flatter fronts are the best way, so keep the curls for the back area. Curls are used for creating texture. Never touch the curls while they are still warm, this will loosen them up. Once the hair has cooled, run your finger through the hair with some hairwax and place the texture wherever you want.

If your hair is long you could try a romantic and natural looking spiral perm or if your hair is shorter maybe you will just need a body perm for lift and bounce.

If you decide on a perm, four weeks before the 'big wedding day' is the time to have it, as this enables the curls to settle down, and gives you time to learn how to handle the new texture.
