Research 

On your wedding day, your hair is even more of an important feature than normal. The first step to take is actually looking at what you like, style wise. Is it an updo? Is it loose waves? Plaits? See what you are naturally drawn to and keep a Pinterest board or folder with your inspirations. Do also take your face shape and overall features into consideration to some extent: it’s certainly not an absolute rule but bear in mind that a style will look very different on a square jawline than on a heart shaped face.

Grow your hair

Clients usually start growing their hair from the day they get engaged as they know that a longer hair style means their hairstylist has more to work with on their big day. We always find that as soon as they return from their honeymoon, the first thing they do on their return is book an appointment to cut it all off again!. I also advise clients not to colour their hair less than two weeks before their big day. This way it has time to settle and get in great condition for all the pictures

Keep your hair nourished
