Preparing for Wedding Day Hairstyles

Think of your hair as your greatest accessory for your big day. Whether you plan to wear your hair in an updo style, long and silky, or short and tousled, it is important to plan ahead in order to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch as far as your wedding day hair is concerned. In the perfect world, brides-to-be would begin thinking about their hair care routine about six to nine months before the big day.

About six months prior to your wedding day plan a visit to see your hair dresser. You will want to discuss your plans and set up all of your appointments. Start a scrap book full of collections of ideas and hairstyles to share with your hair dresser. Take with you pictures of your wedding dress and veil. Your hair dresser will be able to look at these and help you come up with ideas to make your day knock-out perfect.

About five months before your big day begin experimenting with color treatments to be sure to achieve just the right look for that all-so-special walk down the isle. Giving yourself five months will allow time to try different options and time to wear them around to see what you really love.

This six to nine month time frame will allow time to consider the condition of your hair. If your hair is in poor condition due to chemical over-processing, it may be a good time to consult your hair specialist on how to go about treating it. Diet is a very important factor when it comes to the health of your hair. Making diet changes now can help the shine and manageability of those locks in time for the big wedding day. The following nutrients are important for hair health: protein, B-complex vitamins, vitamins A and C, and omega-3 fatty acids. Make sure to start a diet that includes adequate amounts of these nutrients. Make sure to include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet as you can never go wrong with these.

About 3 months prior to the big day begin a weekly schedule of conditioning treatments. Consult your hair professional regarding the best choice of conditioning treatments specific to your hair’s condition.
