Bridal Hair Quote by Neil Barton of Neil Barton Hairdressing

1940 style hair

I recommend the Goldwell Rich Repair 60 second treatment, which will add essential minerals, building strength and adding gloss to your hair. Argan Oil is also great for de-frizzing and smoothing hair. Ideally, you should start using these products a few months before your wedding day. Combine these products with regular hair trims to achieve healthy and shiny hair for your big day.
