Your dress must be the integral element for everything else around it; the wedding hair, the jewellery, shoes and makeup. Find a dress that compliments you and makes you feel like a million bucks. And why not? After all, every bride wants to look like a queen on her extremely special day!

Maintain Your Mane

For a bride-to-be, it becomes important to go for hair spa treatments and get those split ends removed to look perfect on the wedding day.

Pamper yourself and indulge in hair spas and deep conditioning treatments every fortnight in the months leading up to your wedding. Doing so will ensure that your hair remains shiny, moisturised and well nourished.

Also, you should keep a strict check on those split ends as keeping your locks healthy will accentuate your gorgeous hairstyle by notches.

Don’t Shy From Experimenting


A good hair dresser will sit with you to go through your dress and the choice of hairstyles that would go with your attire. Be experimental and get the hairstyle that you think would suit your desired look the best. If you’re not sure of how to describe the look and styles that appeal to you, collect photos and reference eras that you’d like to try.

Book a trial before deciding the bridal hairstyle

This point is super imperative with regards to your big day. When you have a couple of thoughts, take them along to your hair dresser for a couple of trial sessions. Give yourself a lot of time, as you would prefer not to settle on choices in the last couple of weeks before your wedding day, only adding to your anxiety level. The season of year you’re getting hitched will likewise influence your hair. For example, you might need to go for sunkissed highlights in case you’re having a mid year wedding or choose something darker in case you have your wedding in winter.

Are you comfortable with it?

Another point to keep in mind is how comfortable and easy going you are with the hairstyle. If your hair is secured with a thousand tight clips, so much so that you cannot even move your head without getting a headache, change your look. After all, there is no point in looking at the photos and regretting your hairstyle later, right?
