Saying yes to the dress is only the start of the styling process for modern brides. Getting the right haircut, colour and styling for your big day is as important as every other element of your well planned day and the experienced team and Alchemy & I in Berkhamsted are here to help you bring your bridal hair vision to life!
Starting your planning early by researching what you want your wedding style to be is the way modern brides bring their vision to life. Searching through hair magazines, Pinterest, Instagram and gorgeous wedding blogs is the best place to find the look you want. You then have to combine this with your personal style and your wedding themes and colours to create something unique and special to you.
Wedding Hairstyle Options
Do you want a gorgeous up do, or leave your hair free flowing with stunning waves? Are you considering extensions or a change of colour for your wedding day? There are so many options, but the expert team at Alchemy & I can work with you to combine your face shape, hair type and time before the wedding to help you decide the perfect look for your big day.
Complement the Wedding Dress
You bridal hair should complement your wedding dress, if it has a stunning neckline or detailing around the neckline that you want to show off then consider an up do, if your dress has an open back design then choose a pony tail or side braid to elevate that aspect of the dress. Your whole look needs to be considered so you can look and feel amazing on your wedding day.
Be Realistic About Your own Hair
You may have fallen in love with an amazing hairstyle you have seen on Instagram, but will your hair look like this? Is it long enough? Is it thick enough? If you want to know if a style you love will work with your hair then speak to the hairdressers at Alchemy & I to get their advice. You can of course always get extensions, but you need to factor this in as early as possible in the planning. The texture of your hair is also important, especially if you are deciding to wear hair accessories. Heavy hair clips may not stay if you hair is fine or may get lost if your hair is full and bouncy. Also consider if you are going to wear a veil and what impact that will have on the hairstyle you choose.
Do a Trial Run
To make sure you love the look, and give you the opportunity to make any little changes, you should do a trial run with your hair stylists. If you want to change colour then it is also advisable to do this well in advance of the day in case it does not look exactly like you thought so you can change this if you want to.
Be True to You
It is your wedding day, and your personality and love for each other should shine through in every aspect of the day including your hair. Choose a style you really love, that you will look back on and smile. It also needs to be a comfortable style you can wear all day, or give you the option to let some of it down for the evening reception.
