Even though you might not be a Hollywood star, but for a day, you get to be the damn bride! And this bride needs care and attention. What better way to ensure that every single detail in your look is being taken care of than to get yourself a bomb stylist

Let’s take a step back first and explain to you what a stylist really is.

Your stylist will simply tell you what goes with what, what colors to prioritize according to your skin tone, the best accessories that go with your outfit, and anything else that has to do with what you wear and how you wear it, including your hair. Imagine someone giving you a catalog of all the things that would look good on you, that’s what a personal stylist basically does.  

When planning your bridal look, the stylist should help you match everything together and tell you what goes well with what, including helping you stay in the same lane as the theme of the wedding, the groom’s look, and that of your bridesmaids as well.

Here are your 5 basic tips that will definitely help you pick the right stylist for yourself. 

1- It’s personal:

Think of it like this, you’re not only hiring a stylist to help you on that one specific day, no, you want a stylist who can help you choose better for yourself in the future, someone you can take advice that you can apply in your daily life from. Look good, feel good, it’s a known fact. If your stylist can get you to open up to new things while still allowing you to feel comfortable in your own skin, then hurray, you’ve both done a great job! Your friends and family will certainly notice the changes and they most probably won’t hold back or shy away from telling you the truth about what they think of the new and improved you. 

2- Nice and slow:

Start slow, like dipping your toes in water to see if the temperature is right. Observe celebrity looks and resort to social media to view outfits of the ones you love the most. After that, begin your search for stylists that could successfully execute your desired looks, you’ll know. Ask your friends, especially the fashion enthusiasts among them. This step will give you the confidence boost you need to get on with the process.

3- Know why:

It’s a total makeover, so be objective about it and try to keep an open mind. At the same time, never shy away from asking or commenting on whatever’s concerning you, like “Why silver accessories and not gold?” or “I’m not sure about the width of this belt, I want to change it”. A good stylist is able to explain their every choice and move.

4- Make room for small talk:

Before taking your stylist’s words for granted, make sure that you’re fully aware of all your options and choices so that you could detect the right move from the wrong one. Then comes the part where you need to communicate with the stylists that you like, showing them glimpses of your life and personality in order for them to make up an image in their heads of who you are and what you stand for. 

5- Go shopping:

Last but not least, go shopping with your stylist. Let your new stylist know how you handle the shopping process, what grabs your attention, and what takes your breath away. Allow yourself to soar, see the latest fashion trends through a professional’s eyes, and linger on display windows. If there’s chemistry there, you’ll certainly feel it.
