Do’s and Dont’s for Bridal Hair Trials

Your wedding day is quickly approaching. You’ve booked the venue, created a guest list, printed invites, chosen bridesmaids, and decided on cake decorations. What you’ll look like on your wedding day is usually at the top of your list of things to consider before walking down the aisle. Once the dress is in place and the makeup artist has completed the demo, the only thing left is figuring out what to do with your hair. You want it to be perfect because you have only been dreaming of this day FOREVER.

How you wear your hair can radically change how you feel about yourself, and picking your bridal hairstyle should enhance rather than compete with the elements of your dress. The best way to find this out is through a bridal hair trial. A what? Keep reading along to discover why a bridal hair trial is so important!

Selecting a Wedding Hairstyle

So, where do you begin when looking for the perfect hairstyle for your wedding day? Choosing your wedding hairstyle is almost as crucial as picking out your wedding gown. Having the right style complementing your personality and wedding aesthetic is essential. I believe a bride should appear and feel a more put-together version of herself. If you’re the type of person who always wears your hair down and finds comfort in doing so, do so. The same can be said if you prefer to keep your hair up!

It’s a good idea to start looking at bridal magazines and wedding hairstyle galleries a few months before the big day. You can show off your variety of options to your friends and keep track of your favorite styles by pinning them to Pinterest. In any case, it’s a good idea to come prepared with a few potential hairstyles to discuss during your appointment.

Don’t Forget. . . Bridal Hair Trials

A bridal hair trial should be scheduled a few months to a few weeks before the wedding. Most salons will charge a small fee for a trial run, but the assurance of finally settling on the perfect hairstyle is well worth the cost. You can also bring in the veil and pictures of your favorite hairstyles at this time. It would be best if you did not experiment with a new look on your wedding day, so this consultation is crucial. Bridal hair trials are ESSENTIAL before the wedding day. Nothing beats trying it out beforehand, no matter how awesome a style may appear in a picture. This will give you peace of mind and give your Bridal stylist time to get to know you and your hair before the big day. Our Bridal professionals will be able to tell you if your inspiration will work with your hair and your dress and, if not, give you recommendations from our elite team!

Wedding Hair Trial Tips

  • You should bring a picture of your dress to the salon so the stylist can match your hair to the design of the dress.
  • Ensure to email images prior, bring photos of styles you like, and describe what you love and dislike about them.
  • It is highly recommended that you bring any veils or other hair accessories to your hair trial.
  • You should tell your stylist the truth about what you want and express your thoughts if you end up disliking the style.  Most brides go through multiple trials before deciding on their wedding day hairstyle.
  • Spending the rest of the day with your wedding hairstyle is essential to ensure it holds up.
