Getting your hair “in shape” before your wedding or any special occasion is a MUST. Follow my easy wedding hair tips to achieve healthy, lustrous hair and a gorgeous, shiny style for your special day!
Tip #1 Hair that isn’t well hydrated and nourished will end up looking fried, over processed, and dry on your special day. While deep treatments at home are important, getting a salon quality hydrating hair treatment on a regular basis is a must as well.
Tip #2 In addition regular hydrating treatments, regular haircuts are also important. Talk to your stylist about what your goal is for your special day. This important for them to know so they can cut your hair properly.
Tip #3 Do NOT change your haircut or color right before the wedding! The same goes for bridesmaids too!
Tip #4 Get a trial style done of what you want your hair to look like for your wedding or special event. What you think you may want may not be what looks best on you. Bring your ideas, but ask your stylist what he or she may recommend for you. Be sure your hairstyle compliments your personality and overall style.
Tip #5 Remember you are what you eat! Eating a healthier diet will ultimately give you healthier hair. Eating foods rich in omegas will result in shinier locks and reduce the amount of breakage.
Tip #6 Regular exercise is important to stimulate the blood flow to the scalp and nourish the hair follicle.
