Preparing for your wedding day can be an incredibly stressful time for many ‘brides to be’. To help you out, we have created a series called ‘Bridal Beauty’. ‘Bridal Beauty’ is a series of beauty tips that will help you to alleviate some of the pressure that comes with planning a wedding. We want you to sit back, relax and enjoy the process of prepping for your walk down the aisle.
The team at SoCo Events has held the hands of many brides through the process of creating their bridal beauty regiment and appointments. We are here to share with you some of our best wedding day beauty practices.
We are going to begin this series with ‘Bridal Beauty: Hair Tips’. Taking proper care of your hair and scheduling maintenance leading up to your wedding day will make all the difference in a perfect hairstyle the day of your wedding. It is just as important to stay on track with your beauty appointments as you do with the planning leading up to your wedding day.
The most important thing to remember: TIMING IS EVERYTHING!
· Trim your tresses! Schedule a trim about 2 to 3 weeks out from your wedding day – this will allow for that awkward “just cut look” to subside and your hair will look fresh and healthy. Also, be sure you do not do anything drastic - meaning a completely different hairstyle or color right before your wedding…you do not want to be stuck with a look that you hate on your big day.
· Color, color, color! Schedule any color or highlight appointments for approximately 10 days out – so your color is fresh and you have no roots to be found! Again, just stick to a color you know and love – this is not the time to see if Katy Perry’s latest electric blue color works on you.
· Schedule your Stylist! Be sure to find and book a hair stylist you are excited about working with to create your bridal look. Sought after stylists in the DC Metro area book up fast! This is something you or your planner should book early in the planning process to ensure you get your first choice. Regardless of how great your stylist is, make sure you do a bridal hair trial. This will give you the opportunity to discuss what styles might work best with your face shape, your gown and the overall look you want to achieve on your wedding day. There is nothing worse than having no idea what you want to do with your hair a few hours before you walk down the aisle.
