Bride and Bridesmaid Hair

The other week I was watching a program about the children’s beauty pageants over in America. One of the mum’s was standing there watching her toddler have her hair curled, straightened, sprayed and teased to insane bouffant. The poor child was squinting through puffs of spray and glitter and the hairdresser was explaining to the film crew that the “higher the hair, the higher to Jesus. I call it Jackin’ it to Jesus”. I just about peed my pants laughing. I had not heard of that term before but apparently it is often recited in the beauty pageant circuit. Of course because the contestants are children everything is over the top and elaborate (sometimes scary), but outside of that I am yet to find someone who would want to “Jack their hair up to Jesus” on their wedding day.

Every bride wants to look their best and hair care is high on the list of beauty appointments. The minute a client walks into the salon and mentions to the hair dresser standing behind her that she is getting married, the hair dresser smiles and makes a mental note to take out extra insurance. A bride is as pedantic about her hair as she is about everything else. Hair dressers make sure they have all bases covered by going over a hair care routine with their bride to make sure that her hair stays in top condition for her wedding. My hair dresser was wonderful. She laid it all out on the table for me as I had decided 9 months out from my wedding that I wanted to go from brunette to blonde and be blonde for my wedding. I was also growing my hair out. She pointed out the perils of bleaching and set about a game plan to combat the drying and frizzing that would happen. I promised to follow her rules and also book in for every six weeks to keep up with trims and the odd touch up. In the final month before the wedding she stopped touching up the regrowth, leaving it to be done two days out from my wedding, ensuring that my hair looked perfect.

So some things you need to think of when it comes to your hair. Once you have found your hair dresser stay with them and their salon. If you chop and change, it can show in your hair with mismatched regrowth and care techniques. Talk to your hairdresser if you are thinking of having a new style cut, making sure that what you want suits your face and look for the wedding. You want to make sure that your style is not high maintenance as you are going to have your hands full organising the rest of your wedding. If you are putting a colour or bleach through your hair think about how often you will need to go back and the products that will be required to maintain the colour. Extensions can be a bit iffy. If they are done well, great, but you don’t want the dishevelled starlet look on your day with the extensions visible, plus the damage it can do to your natural hair can’t be good! Don’t experiment with a dramatic style cut before your wedding. That whole “what’s the difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut? Two weeks” is not true. Trust me.

It all comes down to cost. I once forked out over $300 in one sitting for a cut and colour and that did not include the products to take home to maintain the colours. Your hair dresser will go over everything with you and help talk you out of making unfortunate decisions. A week before my wedding I wanted to cut my hair super short. My hair dresser was brave enough to talk me out of it and I am so glad she did.

When it comes to your hairstyle for your day, you have to book in for a hair trial. You can’t walk in on the day and expect the hair dresser to figure out what you want in the hot seat. By having the trial, knowing what you want will ensure that on the day you have enough time for the appointment and can sit and relax with your hair dresser making your hair beautiful and it is one more thing to cross off on your wedding to-do list. For my wedding I went with the classic French Roll. If you are wearing earrings like hoops or chandelier styles, sweep your hair up into a chignon, or a half up do to show off the sparkle. Even if you have short hair, your hair dresser can find a style to suit your wedding day. Long tresses can be softly filled out with curls and waves and there are heaps of beautiful clips, bands and pins to adorn your hair, so if you are not wearing a tiara you can still sparkle! It just so happens to be that Australia’s #1 Wedding Shop Pink Frosting sells mentioned diamante hair accessories and veils. So go and have a chat to your hair dresser, buy your hair pretties from Pink Frosting ready to take in for the hair trial!
