At this point in time, you probably have tried at least one or two hairstylists. You know what is good for you, your hair, and the shape of your face. But still, you’re not quite sure about which path to take for your wedding day hair-wise. 

Let’s cut this short and let you in on 5 points that’ll get you there. Here’s how to choose your wedding hairstylist.

1- Go Online:

Take all the time you need to surf for looks online, check pictures, styles, Pinterest boards, Instagram accounts, and profiles of hairstylists. Do whatever it takes to reach a satisfactory decision and don’t stop until you’re happy with your choice of both hairstyle and hairstylist. Don’t forget to select and purchase the hair accessories that you want to use, the options are, of course, endless. You got combs, clips, headbands, tiaras, flowers, little hats, pins, the list goes on. Don’t forget to also search for looks and dos that match your hair length. 

Good luck finding your hair slayer.

2- Consider these factors:

All of which affect your call. 

Do you only need the hairstylist for your wedding day or do you plan on starting a hair care routine with him/her?

If you intend to start developing a hair care routine with your hairstylist before the wedding day, then you need to start on that 6 months before. Compare prices and ALWAYS do your own homework on the products used on you. 

The dress:

The style of your dress and its cut should already influence the choices you make in regards to your hair. A high neck dress requires a different hairstyle than maybe something you would go for when dressed in a V-neck one.

The wedding mood or style:

Is it modern? Retro? Themed? Take this into consideration when choosing your hairstyle and hairstylist because you have to match the mood and ambiance. I mean, you’re the bride ;) 

The weather:

It goes without saying that you MUST check to see how the weather’s going to be on the chosen date. A factor that inevitably affects your choice. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, your hair will have to look different than if it is indoor, taking into consideration the wind, temperature, and weather. 

The jewelry:

What do your earrings look like if you’re wearing any? Are you wearing a necklace? Make sure that your jewelry matches your hair accessories.

3- You don’t want to miss out on these things:

The internet is flooded with online tutorials on EVERYTHING. Check out different tutorials for hairdos and try some out yourself. A method that guarantees you find out what you like and what you don’t. Try to also divert from what you’re used to when you’re in the playing-around phase. 

Don’t shy away from asking your friends and family for advice because maybe, they know something that you don’t and either way, you do need a second opinion. 

4- Try for yourself:

When choosing your hairdresser, pick someone who is willing to give you a couple of free of charge/reasonably priced hair trial sessions. You have to see and try their work for yourself before push comes to shove.  It’s your right to want to be 100% certain of your choice, so ask for a trial where you get to try on different hairdos. 

After making up your mind, make sure to have another final hair, dress, and makeup trial, yep, all at once.

5- Avoid these things:

First, avoid new haircuts, colors, or any other eccentric ideas that might unfold themselves as naive mistakes after the damage has already been done.  

Second, don’t you dare skip checking your hairstylist’s online reviews and comments if the content’s available. Don’t be a slug. Ask to see their work.
