Quick Bridal Hair Tips

Before you begin your search for the perfect wedding hairdo, squizz through the following bridal hair tips:
  • Choose a timeless hairstyle - Although trends are great, prevent cringe-worthy moments years down the line as you page through your wedding album, by incorporating one trend as part of a timeless hairstyle. A simple and timeless style will always work in your favor. 
  • Choose a hairstyle that will complement the rest of your bridal look – Make sure that your hairdo works well with your make-up and bridal wear. 
  • Choose a style that works with your unique type of hair - Embrace your curls, make the most of your waves or let your poker straight locks flow, as long as your chosen hairstyle suits your type of hair. 
  • Choose an accessory to add to your look, not to take it over - Decide whether you’d like to incorporate an accessory as part of your hairstyle. If so, it is best that the accessory adds to your overall look, without taking it over. 
  • Book a trial run with your hairstylist – Practice makes perfect and a trial run with your hairstylist will ensure that all of the above is checked off your list.
