Tips to prepare a great wedding hair style (II)

by Jen Thomas

8. Wedding hairstyle accessories. There are many to choose from. Wedding hair accessories are very elegant, expensive looking, and very well-made. The many wedding hair accessories that you can choose from include a sophisticated tiara, hair flowers, rhinestone hair pieces, and many more. An accessory can round out that perfect look you are after!

9. Bring any veil or wedding hair accessory. Be sure to show them to your stylist of choice before the day of the wedding so they have a good idea of what they will be working with and together you can discuss what styles work best with your veil or accessory. If you don't have it purchased yet but plan to wear one then simply buy something similar from the store.

10. Veil Removal. If you do plan to wear a veil then ask your stylist for suggestions on veil removal depending on what kind of veil you are using. One suggestion is to consider a veil that is not sewn to the main head-piece or tiara but can be easily attached or removed with velcro which is also known as hook-and-loop.

11. Photographer. Ask the salon owner if their photographer is allowed in the salon to take pictures of the bride and bridemaids getting their hair done. Most often this should not be a problem but you want to be sure so that things can go smoothly on your special day!

12. Food and Snacks. Ask the salon owner if you are allowed to bring any snacks or drinks for yourself and any bridemaids. At times, the owner may even be happy to provide light snacks and drinks themselves, and especially if they know ahead of time.

13. Try before making a final choice. Discuss with your stylist on trying your wedding hairstyle choice before the day of your actual wedding so you can truly determine whether this style will work well for you or not. You most likely will love the way it turns out and decide to stick with that choice but you may find that it might look a bit off, needs some tweaking, or you may need to pick an entirely different style if it just doesn't give you the right look. Give yourself 6 months of searching and trying before making that final choice.

14. Listen to your instincts. You may find you are uncomfortable with a certain stylist or not as thrilled with an accessory as you first thought. You may have more than one style that you love and need time to decide. Make sure you are as satisfied as possible with your stylist and your choice of wedding hair style for that special day simply because you deserve it on such an important occasion!

You will want your wedding hairstyle to look great with your gown, your settings, and most of all it should be a hairstyle that gives you confidence, a happy glow, and fits you the most.
