Tips for the bride – Hair Style!

  • Talk to a hair stylist as soon as the date for your wedding has been finalised. This consultation is important so that the stylist can check your hair for any damage that needs to be taken care of and initiate any treatments it might need. This way, your hair will be perfect and healthy, ready for any hairstyle you might want for your wedding day.
  • Discuss with your stylist what hair styles suit you and make you look your best.
  • Talk to your stylist about the kind of hair style(s) you're looking for. This should be based on the clothes you're wearing for the different functions  so that the hair and clothes complement each other.


  • Once you know what hairstyle you'd like for your wedding, get a trial done. This way, both you and your stylist will know what the end result should be like and if you really do like how it looks. This is important so that you're not unpleasantly surprised on wedding day.
  • If you want to get your hair cut, don't do it right before the wedding, because it doesn't get time to settle in properly. Give it at least a couple of weeks. However, discuss with your stylist before getting anything done.
  • If all your hairstyles are ones that need to be tied up or have complicated braids etc, it's always best to leave your hair long.


  • Plan on getting your hair coloured? Do it several months before the actual wedding so that it settles in properly and looks as natural as it can. It would also give you a chance to try a different shade if you don't like your new hair colour.
  • If possible, try and get a full trial with complete hairstyle and makeup, so that you get an idea of what you will look like on the final day.
  • Avoid any drastic makeovers right before your wedding. Experiment if you have to at least 2-3 months before the wedding so that you don't have to do any damage control at the last minute.


  • Don't wash your hair on the day of the wedding. Do it a day before because freshly washed hair tends to be tricky for hair styling.
  • Finally, on the day of the wedding, if you have to change from a traditional hair style to a fashionable one, it is better to have a hair straightener in hand. Remember to discuss about the change in hairstyles with your stylist well in advance!
