7 Tested Tips For Wedding-Ready Hair

wedding hair tips

In between organising the venue, the dress, and seating arrangements, haircare is often the last thing on a bride’s mind when their wedding bells are ringing. But knots, tangles, and an unruly mess above your head will spell a wedding disaster.

To look as good as possible on your big day, start caring for your mane well beforehand with these helpful tips.

#1 – Hair colour

The months before your wedding is not the time to experiment with new or outrageous hair colours, as the wrong hair colour can damage your hair completely and be near to impossible to remedy.

Therefore, for your wedding, it’s best to keep your hair colour either as natural as possible, or the same as you’ve had it recently. Save experimentation and new hair trends for your honeymoon and beyond.

#2 – Use a smoothing conditioner

As a bride-to-be, it’s vital to invest in quality hair care products. Use a smoothing conditioner regularly to hydrate your hair and keep it moisturised. The more time you spend caring for your tresses prior to your wedding, the less effort you will have to put into it on the big day.

#3 – Try out and test your hair care routine

While adopting a new hair care routine before your wedding sounds great, using the wrong products can lead to damaged and limp hair. If you’re looking to elevate your hair care routine, then a great suggestion would be to try it out as soon as the wedding date is set.

This will give you enough time for trial and error with different products so you can find the best ones to use. Alternatively, if you don’t want to take the risk of switching things up, stick to what you know and only use products that have worked for you in the past.

#4 – Air-dry your hair more

Any professional hair stylist will tell you that it’s best to allow your hair to air dry the day before your wedding. If you’re new to air drying your hair, take it for a spin a few weeks prior to the day.

Air drying hair has many benefits, but most importantly it eliminates a damaging session of heat and and the subsequent heat damage.

#5 – Don’t pull your hair out

Believe it or not, stress can take a toll on your hair. Over-stressing can cause your hair to fall out and may even lead to some greys. We can’t think of better motivation to ditch the stress!

If you start pulling your hair out before the wedding, you might not have enough hair to create the style you want on the actual day. Try tying your hair gently as opposed to tightening it.

You also want to ensure you’re not overmanipulating your hair in general or playing with it between your fingers – another culprit many of us are guilty of. To relieve stress, you may benefit from practicing calming techniques like breathwork and mindfulness meditation.

#6 – Carefully assess all possible hair styles

Your hair may look lush and healthy on your wedding day, but your actual hairstyle on the day makes all the difference. Carefully select the right style for your face shape, gown design, and make sure that it compliments your jewellery as well.

Your hair stylist will tell you if you need hair extensions for your hairstyle. If you are using hair extensions, don’t leave the application until the last minute!

#7 – Oil your hair and get enough vitamin D

Oiling your hair regularly is another great tip to keeping your hair healthy and shiny. Also, don’t be afraid to expose your hair to the sun occasionally, as allowing the sun to shine on your hair is essential to vitamin D production.

Good wedding day hair starts with the right hair care. So loosen your locks and take heed of these tips to get your hair wedding day ready.
