Don’t leave your hair style to chance for your wedding day. Budget enough money to hire a professional to take care of your hair and makeup. Always schedule a trial hair and makeup appointment well in advance of your wedding so in case you are not satisfied, you still have time to look for another hair stylist. If you plan to have your hair colored, have it done well in advance of the wedding in case you don’t like the shade.
There are many tips to consider before you decide on a hair style for your wedding. If you see something you like in a magazine, don’t disregard it just because you don’t like a portion of the hairstyle. You can bring the picture in to your hairstylist and communicate which part of the style you like. If you would like a little more hair length or fullness for your wedding day, consider hair extensions; just make sure they are made of human hair. If your hair is thin, flowers are also an option to help fill in the gaps.
