There will be more pictures taken of you on your wedding day than any other day of your life (no pressure!). But what if your beauty routine is, well, a bit lacklustre? No worries; we've got all the bridal beauty tips you need to look your best on your wedding day.
First, keep in mind that how you look on your wedding day begins well before that morning. Start a beauty regime as early as possible. Thinking about trying out a new hair colour or cut? Try to make any major changes at least five months before the big day. Otherwise, if you want an elaborate updo for your wedding, most experts recommend letting your hair grow with regular trims every six weeks or so.
Five to six months before your wedding is also a great time to start a regular skincare routine to help guarantee smooth, clear skin later down the road.
Three to four months before your wedding, it is time to book consultations with your wedding hairstylist and makeup artists. This is your chance to do a trial-run of your wedding day look -- we recommend having your appointment earlier in the day so you can see how long the look will last. Take plenty of pictures so you can see how your look transfers to film and so your wedding makeup artist or hairstylist can re-create the look later. Avoid drastically changing your hair length or colour, getting a facial, waxing, or introducing any new products to your system less than a week or two before your wedding. You want to give your body time to adjust to any changes and give yourself time to correct any mistakes or heal from any bad reactions.
There are so many choices when it comes to wedding hairstyles and the process can seem overwhelming, after all, your wedding hair will be highly photographed! Fortunately, we've got all the tips and tricks to gorgeous bridal hairstyles you need.
The first step to choosing the right hairstyle is to gauge your hair type. Obviously, there are plenty of wedding hairstyles for long hair, like natural styles with romantic, loose curls and formal wedding up do's. But there are also a lot of fun options for short wedding hairstyles, like sparkly hairpins or even trendy headbands.
Next, you'll want to start collecting photos of wedding hair styles that you love. Once you have an idea of what you want, you'll need to find a wedding hair pro in your area, keeping in mind that the same person who cuts your hair isn't necessarily the best person to style your wedding hair. Do your homework - once you've found someone you like, schedule a hair trial appointment. This is your opportunity to share the photos of bridal hairstyles you like and to determine whether your stylist's vision matches yours. This is especially true for wedding up do's!
When you go to your hair trial, make sure to bring along your veil or any hair accessories you're planning to wear so that your stylist can recreate the exact look you want. Once you've nailed down the perfect style, book their services, keeping in mind that wedding hairstyles for long hair often take several hours (so be sure to give yourself enough time to get ready before your wedding ceremony). If you plan on changing your hair before the reception, ask your hair stylist to teach one of your bridesmaids how to help you.
