Have a conversation with yourself:

What type of style have you always envisioned for that special day? Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you want your hair up or down?
  • Do you want it close to your head?
  • Do you want to glue in hair pieces or get it sewn in?
  • Do you want braids?
  • How much money are you willing to spend?
  • Once you are able to answer these questions you will be fully armed with a look you'd like to achieve.

    Avoid Common Mistakes

    Your photos are cemented forever, you do not want to look at them and cringe regretting you'd wish you had chosen something else. Here are some things to avoid when creating your hairstyle.

  • Be careful when choosing a style because it's in fashion or because a celebrity rocked it. Do not choose a style you normally would not wear. What may look good on a celebrity may not work well for you. Remember these celebrities have a battery of stylists to get them to achieve those looks.
  • Do not succumb to peer pressure. Do not choose a style because your friend thinks it will look good on you. It's your day and you need to be as comfortable as possible. Also you need to have people around you that are HONEST and are not afraid to let you know if something does not look good on you!
  • Less is More Pt. 1

    If you are adding hairpieces be careful not to overdo it. Do not forget that you are wearing a veil. All eyes will be on you, so do not give them more to talk about. Do not feel the need to add extra pieces of hair when it's not necessary. Why style your hair to make it look like a sky scraper or a bird's nest ??

    Less is More Pt. 2

    If you are wearing a simple dress, there is no better way to glam it up by wearing beautiful accessories to adorn your hair. You can get Custom Designed Hair Pieces & Accessories by Beauloni. To go The Http:// for more information.

    Do not Do it yourself !!

    This is the worst time to try to cut costs. Do not attempt any highlighting, braids, weaves or coloring yourself. Leave it to the professionals just for once! Even if you have styled your hair before, do not add the extra stress to yourself !! Enjoy being a bride and let someone else take care of you. Do not set yourself up for something to go wrong. If you do not have a regular stylist ask a friend to recommend someone.

    Go for a Trial Do to avoid a do not !!

    Make an appointment with your stylist at least one month before your wedding. Have a representative from your wedding party present there also. Take along your veil and any accessories so that your stylist can make any necessary adjustments. One more important thing you must do is to ask your stylist what is the best way to maintain your hair throughout your wedding day.

    Celebrate your day and look great doing it !!!
