Ideas for brides or event hair on windy days - From Loco Hair

1) A ponytail hair up with a head scarf or head band
2) A soft bun, with twists or braids to keep the hair in place
3) Soft curls or messy styled hair up that allows a bit of movement in light wind.

Any style that keeps the hair from the face and well secured at the back will suffice,the last thing you want is to be spending your day flicking hair out of your face.


Tips for having great hair on your wedding day

From Cutting Edge Hair Design and Makeup Stylist


Just as important as the goals of losing weight, so the nana knickers don't have to stretch so far you need to plan at least 12 months out from your wedding date,your hair and hair style requirements.

You will need a plan to achieve the outcome of overall satisfaction for the big day.
Importantly your hair and makeup style should suit the gown style and overall theme of the day. Tying in your bridesmaid look too is important to create a pleasing overall look.

My suggestions for your plan

Hair and make-up make appointments 12 months out. Involve your stylists in the overall vision of the wedding. Both hair and make-up artists need to see your gown, veil or hair adornments.

Your stylists may initiate a 12 month hair and skin care plans. If you’re having a spray tan prior to the wedding you need to advise stylists, different skin tones require different hair and makeup base colours. Include your bridesmaids in these appointments if possible.

At least two weeks prior to the wedding you should have a complete ‘final look’ practise, hair make-up, gown shoes and any accessories. Once again this is wise for bridesmaids too. Sometimes bridesmaids are not with you until the last minute but please ensure you do an ‘all together’ overview. It will make the world of difference in the photos. Look for tan lines, necklace lengths, hem lengths, shoe presentation; oops I was supposed to concentrate on hair. When I’m styling I do look at everything it’s very important when you want to achieve the very best result.

Hair – main tips

1. Consult with your stylist
2. The first step to create a great look is to focus on condition and health of your hair.
3. Regular cuts and conditioning treatments.
4. Use a good quality shampoo and conditioner and treatment to maintain your hair between salon visits.
5. Understand what your hair type, face and body shape is and what can be achieved.(creating a look that is so totally different from the norm can be a mistake if the finished styling and photos look nothing like you.)
6. Create a vision of the finished look you wish to achieve. Utilize magazines and internet. Create a picture board.
7. You will need to consider co-ordinating the look/style of your wedding, wedding dress.
8. Consider the style of the dress, neck line, jewellery, veils and hairpieces or accessories. These considerations help a stylist co- ordinate a look that will compliment.
