On your wedding day hair up or hair down, you should look like the very best version of yourself. This means if you are a casual person in your daily life who never wears makeup. This is not the day to start wearing heavy make up or over done hair. As a Lake District Wedding Photographer I have worked with some amazing hairdressers.
Here’s the deal: You want your groom (or bride) and your guests to recognise you as you walk down the aisle. Even more importantly, you want to feel comfortable and supremely confident as you walk down that aisle. True beauty, after all, comes from within.
Does this feel like you? And if I can give you a bit of advice learned from generations of brides that have come before you: you can tune out that well-meaning advice that will surely come from friends and family. If you want extensions, get them. If you don’t want to grow out your short haircut, don’t.
The options are endless. You can pull your hair up in the most amazing styles. There are jewels you can wear in your hair or flowers.
Finding the right stylist to do your hair can seem daunting. You don’t have to use your regular stylist. Having your hair styled for a wedding or formal event is a speciality that’s different from hair cutting or colouring.
Schedule a trial a couple months to a few weeks before the wedding. Trial runs are basically a run-through of your wedding day and sometimes even your makeup. Most stylists charge a fee for a trial run, but the price is worth it for the peace of mind and to ensure you tie down that perfect hairstyle.
This is your opportunity to bring in the veil and the pictures of hairstyles you love. This is also your chance to try out a few styles. You absolutely do not want to try a new style on the day of your wedding, so this is a very important meeting.
