When it comes to having a trial run for your bridal hairstyle, it’s always a good idea to book this the same day as your dress fitting and makeup trial. The reason for this is that it gives the bride the chance to see their overall look there and then, rather than on the wedding day where she may not feel it looks right and it’s too late, as most often the stylist has left before the bride puts on their dress.
Trichologist Sally-Ann Tarver provides her Top Tips on how to get your hair in perfect shape for the big day.
Sally-Ann Tarver recommends undertaking a 12 month action plan for planning for the perfect hair day in advance encompassing the following stages:
Stage 1 - Ensure your hair is growing well – diet, supplements, laser therapy, stimulants to increase hair growth speed.

Summer can take its toll on our skin and hair, with our tans slowly fading and our skin feeling dry from air conditioning, chlorine and too much sun – it’s time to get back your glow.
Sitting in air-conditioned rooms and planes absorbs the skins natural moisture leaving it feeling dry and parched and it can be particularly detrimental to those who have skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea or psoriasis. However, giving your skin a little TLC with some carefully selected skin saviors will bring your complexion back from the brink, leaving it looking healthy and glowing again.
A member of the country’s most influential hairdressing dynasty, fourth-generation hairdresser Daniel was mixing hair colour when other children were doing finger paintings.
Despite initially wanting to be a journalist, hairdressing was in his blood and Daniel was soon working as a colourist at his father’s Mayfair salon. After three years at Jose Eber in Beverly Hills, where his clients included Jane Seymour, Twiggy and Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, he opened his own boutique salon in Belgravia. There he continues to count an array of A listers among his clientele, Johnny Depp, Kylie Minogue and Amanda Holden among them.

And, who knows, you may even find that you tie in your look with the rest of your wedding theme, if you allow yourself enough time.
How to choose a hairstyle for a summer wedding:
• Wedding hair can be notoriously hard to decide on – it has to work with your dress, accessories, face shape and make you feel totally comfortable at the same time. Take into account the dress neckline and go for a hairstyle that complements it; for example, if you have a detailed, high neckline, an updo or keeping hair behind the shoulders will ensure it’s visible. Try out as many styles as possible with your hairdresser until you find your perfect look.
• Loose, undone braids and romantic updos are a popular choice for summer brides; they look beautiful, keep the hair off your face and neck, and can be let down in the evening for gorgeous waves and movement.
