Quotes from Anya Dellicompagni, Francesco group’s director of hairdressing

Brides

For a bride her hair must be a compliment to the look of her dress and also a compliment to the theme of the big day. I always stress you should feel yourself, therefore, it’s important that the bride thinks about what they most feel comfortable with and especially when it comes to their hair and whether they feel more comfortable wearing it up or down.

Although your hair should feel more beautiful than your everyday look,don't plan on changing it for the day. So don't feel you need to grow it for 2 years for the big day or change you hair colour! There are so many things your hairdresser can use to add length or volume, from clip in extensions to padding, to give a hold and fullness to your hair.
