How to Prepare For Your Wedding Hairstyle

Posted by Hannah Carrier on September 16 2016.

Getting ready for the wedding day is a cherished feeling for every girl as she grooms herself for looking her best on her big day. The wedding hairstyle is one of the important facets of the bridal look and the rest of her look must be complimented with beautiful and well-conditioned hair that should be in sync with her dress.

So, let’s look at some perfect ways of getting your hair ready for the wedding day.


Say Yes to Healthy Hair Habits

You need to focus on having a balanced diet that should be rich in protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, zinc and minerals that not only make hair beautiful but healthy and strong from inside out. So, start eating a balanced diet, get regular exercise and avoid stress before your big day to help add volume, strength, and shine to your wedding hairstyle.


Wash and Condition Your Hair Appropriately

Hotel: Towels and ShampoosIt is a fact that your hair looks good only when washed and conditioned properly. So, prepare your hair for your wedding hairstyle by washing with a sulphate free shampoo and make sure to condition your tresses by using the product of the same line. Don’t over wash your hair as it can decrease the essential oils in the scalp and make hair dry and dull.

This is where your hair most needs conditioner since the roots are already naturally oiled by the scalp. Moreover, you can also give an added shine and strength to your hair by using hair packs rich in proteins once a week at least a month before your wedding to look best on your big day. Because wedding day hairstyles involve the use of lot of heat, sprays, blow-drying and serums to add shine and volume, you should consider making your hair as heat resistant as possible by deep conditioning with protein masks and having adequate intake of water to have naturally beautiful and strong hair.


Get a Hair Trial for Your Wedding

They can help you to choose the best hairstyle that suits your face, your dress and most importantly, makes you feel a glow of confidence that accompanies you on the momentous day. They can also help you make use of different hair accessories to keep your hairstyle intact throughout the day since accessories will not only add to the beauty of your hairstyle, but also make you feel confident about it being perfectly intact. Moreover, you can make suggestions to your hairstylist about certain things that you want like loose curls and any styles that you wish to avoid so as to give as much scope to your stylist who can make plans accordingly.


Pamper Your Hair with a Hot Oil Massage

rsz_22817871053_420a1987e9_oThe age old secret of having luscious locks is to have a hot oil massage, preferably use coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil or castor oil in your hair once or twice a week to strengthen the roots and provide the required nourishment to the cuticles. Additionally, you should cut down on the use of excessive styling heat, chemicals and sprays on your hair as all these make your hair dry, brittle and prone to damage.




Since hair is a crucial aspect of a woman’s personality and wedding look and inspires confidence, it requires a proper care and diet regimen in preparation for her wedding day. All you need to do is be optimistic, eat healthy, live a stress-free life, follow a healthy hair regimen and say no to excessive heat to get the voluminous and shiny hair on your wedding day.
