Is your wedding starting to make you feel like a Hollywood Movie Producer? Even the selection of your wedding hair styles for you and the bridal party is feeling like a movie set in Fantasyland. You are already overwhelmed. You need help with your wedding hair.

Relax; I’m here to ease your stress and to take a big load off of your shoulders. I’ve helped brides and their bridal parties in my salon for so long I am in permanent wedding hair and bridal makeup mode.

I’m going to tell you how to insure that you have alluring, envied bridal hair so it is complimented by, but not overshadowed, by the wedding hair accessories and bridal hair styles of the bridesmaids.

Finally I will give you some wedding hair secret inside information about which other salons wished I kept my mouth shut.


The first step is wedding hair and bridal makeup plans should ideally be formulated at least 3-4 months before the event. Have your hair stylist show you some pictures of their work on brides or of special event hair styles. Bring the wedding hair pictures displaying the styles you like the best.

Pictures of wedding hair styles are one of the best ways to avoid bridal hair disasters. Pictures will help eliminate misunderstandings between you and your hair stylist.

Be practical. Try a style that is comfortable for dancing and moving around. Consider the wedding location’s climate (humid, dry, wet, cold, too hot). Make a selection from wedding hair styles that will match with the style of your dress. Keep your desired bridal hair styles in mind when picking out accessories.


Select simple Wedding Hair Accessories that will not overpower your wedding hair like hair ornaments and headpieces. If you plan to wear a more elaborate headpiece, your wedding hair should be simple. Bridal Tiaras can be very flattering.

Very simple jewelry will do for the bridesmaids. Stick with earrings, bracelets, or rings, but avoid necklaces.
The entire bridal party should have one theme for the wedding hair styles and bridal make-up. However the bridal party could all have different hair lengths, color and texture of hair.

Your bridal make-up should emphasize the eyes, lips, and skin-tone as these parts should be camera friendly at all times. Remember the bride has the leading role in this production. The bridesmaids are the supporting players who are there to make the star look good.


It is not a bad idea to have an up-do, if your dress covers all the way to the neck. Don’t be afraid of a short hair style especially if you are petite. Short hair can be one of the more sexy wedding hair types.

It is usually better to not to request a classic hair do with a contemporary wedding dress. If you have your heart set on one of the classic styles of wedding hair, then it should be a casual one.

For a modern or classic Victorian style, one of the beach wedding hair styles is better when it is a basic chignon or down hair style with simple, loose curls. Soft curls give you a very romantic look. This goes for the bridesmaids as well. It is better that they all follow the same pattern.

The bridal party should wear the same color and style of dress as well as a similar hairstyle. For example, either all the bridesmaids should wear flowers in their hair or no one should at all.


The best way to check the look of all the wedding hair styles in your bridal party is to have your entire bridal party make a visit to a salon for a wedding hair tryout.

The best salons are confident you will be satisfied with their work. Therefore they typically offer a tremendous discount for the tryout. The staff will work hard so that you will book your wedding party with them. When you do book, expect to be presented with a wedding hair contract.


Make sure to read your contract carefully before signing. Read every word and make sure to ask questions if you don’t understand something. If you are uncomfortable with the wording, it is fair to ask that the contract be changed.

Don’t just gloss over the details of the contract. It should include important information such as the date of your wedding, the types of wedding hair and bridal make up services to be rendered.

Many salons will ask for a deposit to hold the appointment in advance.
Some contracts will state that deposits are nonrefundable.

If your wedding hair contract has such a clause determine if there is a grace period. Pay a percentage of the service and not the whole price. Also make payment with a credit card. Should there be a problem or dispute, you will have a better chance of getting your money back.
