Wedding Day Hair Mistakes You Want to Avoid



While you are planning your wedding, your wedding day hair might be something you think of at the last minute. If you have your dress, shoes, and accessories, it is easy to think you’re done planning your look. Once you are making your finishing touches, you will find all kinds of hairstyles you might want to try. There are plenty of great ideas for long, short, curly, straight, and wavy hair. It might get easy to get caught up in all of the fun without thinking about mistakes you might be making. In order to avoid these, we have made a simple list of the mistakes you might be making that you definitely want to avoid.


1. Don’t schedule your hair trial too early.

If you set up your trial too early it gives you time to overthink. This is the worst thing you can do once you’ve decided on your wedding look. The best time to do your trial is about a month before your wedding. At this point, you will have all of your accessories and will have seen all of the alterations made to your dress. Once you've done your trial, you will know how everything looks together.


2. Don’t be unrealistic with your expectations.

It is a tall order to look like a celebrity, so make sure you aren’t setting yourself up for disappointment. Think about the hair type you have and the hairstyle you want. If you think they would work well together, then you’ve got a perfect match. Just be sure not to compare yourself to celebrities or expect your hair to be exactly the same as your inspiration photos.





3. Bring more than one inspiration photo.

It is easy to get attached to one, perfect picture, but this is hard on your stylist. The picture may be perfect, but it only shows the hair from one angle. If you bring a selection of photographs, your hairstylist will be able to create a more customized look that will fit your style perfectly.


4. Don’t get too many opinions.

The most important opinion is YOURS. Don’t ask everyone you know and their mom for good measure. This will leave you feeling confused, and possibly upset, if they don’t pick your favorite. We recommend picking one person that you are very close to, and who hopefully has a similar style.


5. Don’t lose faith in your stylist.

Some hairstylists have done more weddings than you can imagine, so chances are they know what you’re looking for. You might be tempted to ask them a million questions about your hair before you start, but we recommend having faith in them and seeing the final product before you do anything.




6. Don’t change your hairstyle too close to the wedding.

One of the worst things that could happen is getting a bad cut or color before the big day. Make sure your hair looks it’s best by getting it done two to three weeks before your wedding. This will ensure that you have time to fix any mistakes before getting your hair styled on the big day. The last thing you want to do is spend money on hair extensions the day of your wedding to achieve your perfect look.
