There are a few things, a professional wedding hair stylist, will consider when helping you decide on a hair style for your wedding day.
Obviously they need to consider your hair type, but they also will consider…
- the style of wedding dress you have chosen. If you’ve chosen a gown with beautiful detailing on the back for example, you may want to wear your hair up, so everyone can see the detail.
- the location of the wedding ceremony – for example, if the ceremony is on the banks of the Swan River, in the late afternoon, on a summer’s day; it could be windy, so leaving your hair down could ruin your ceremony images, as you’ll potentially have hair blowing in your face. If you have chosen to have your wedding ceremony in a church, obviously you would think differently.
- the potential weather on your wedding day. Now, we know no one can predict what the weather will be like on your wedding day, but, if you’ve chosen a wedding in late January, in WA, chances are it will be hot and even humid. Heat and humidity are an enemy to soft flowing curls for your wedding hair style. Your hair could look limp and lifeless after an hour on a humid day, and, if it’s hot, you may prefer to have all your hair up to keep a little cooler.
When we’re looking to recommend a wedding hair stylist, we take all the above into consideration, to see if we feel the bride has been guided to choose well. Another big thing for us is punctuality, as with wedding makeup artists, if the wedding hair stylist runs late, it cuts into our time to photograph the bride getting ready, and therefore can affect the quality of our work, as we cannot afford to have the bride run late to the ceremony (other than the traditional few minutes she is allows).
We hope you find our recommendations for wedding hair stylists helpful…
