Kathleen Hallas, owner of Peaches, provides sage advice for the bride's preparation:

 

~BRIDAL HAIR FOR THE BIG DAY!~

It's your big day, and you want to look your very best.from the 'tips of your toes', to the 'top of your head'.

Start by looking at hairstyles and getting an idea of what look you want. Take some time to think. Think about the neckline of your wedding dress. A high-necked dress looks lovely with a sweeping updo, and a plunging neckline may be complimented by flowing tresses. Think about the time of year. Hot summer months may not be conducive to wearing your hair down. Think about your facial shape. Think about what suits you and your personality. You should be comfortable with your hair on your wedding day. It should be "you". just a little fancier version of yourself!

How to find a stylist? If you do not have a stylist, or are not a regular at a salon already, then talk to other brides-to-be, ask friends for recommendations!

Now, take all of your photos and ideas to your stylist for consultation. If possible, have a photograph or picture of your wedding dress. This will help the stylist in determining what will look best. Take along any headpieces, tiaras or combs that you will be wearing. Including your veil. It would be horrible to go through a trial, pick your hairstyle, and then find out that your veil doesn't suit the style!

Communicate with your stylist. Talk to them about what drives you crazy (ie. Maybe you hate hair hanging in your face) or what you love. Don't be afraid to let the stylist know that you don't like what they are doing, or that you had a different vision in mind. A stylist understands that their artistic ideas may not be yours.

It is not a good idea to go for any dramatic changes just prior to your wedding day. Unless you are trying to shock family and friends. not to mention your Fiancé! Try to have highlights, color or cuts done one to two weeks prior to your big day. 

If other members of your bridal party are having their hair done also, have them bring in photos as well. Make Sure your bridal party know their appointment times to ensure time schedules run smoothly.

Remember, it is your day to shine! And you want your hair to be your 'crowning glory'. So be sure to do our research, think about what you want, and communicate with your stylist.
