How to keep your hair in good condition for your wedding day

Bride Q – How can I make sure my hair is in good condition for my wedding day?

"Planning your wedding is an exciting yet stressful experience that can take its toll on your hair. Healthy locks begin on the inside, so take vitamin supplements at least three months before the big day to help your hair thrive.

"Don’t overuse heat and use treatments to help maintain strength and moisture.

"Get your tresses cut one month before, giving it plenty of time to settle. Right before your wedding isn’t the time to try a drastic new style. Plan any extreme makeovers a year before the big day, allowing your hair time to grow if you don’t love it.

"Aim to have achieved your target shade at least eight weeks before with a touch up the week before to ensure the colour looks fresh.

"Choosing a style depends on the neckline of your dress. Ruffles and frills combined with fussy hair may appear too much. If your gown is minimal, consider a sleek style or soft, loose waves. Remember, you’re creating lasting memories that you will see in your photos for years to come, so don’t necessarily go for the latest trend as you may look back in 10 years and wonder what on earth you were thinking!

"Select a stylist you have complete confidence in and check out their previous work on real clients before booking. The time running up to your nuptials is when you should discuss your thoughts and ideas, plan whether you want to wear a veil and what will fit with your style. Take along pictures that inspire you and options you don’t like to your trial to ensure you and your stylist are on the same page. This will take away any unnecessary stress on your wedding morning.

"Most importantly, arrive on the day fed, watered and with clean, dry hair ready for your stylist to prep."
