• A month or two before the wedding it is advisable to visit the hairdresser and discuss how you would like to wear your hair
  • Discuss the style of the dress and the theme of the wedding
  • The hairdresser should be able to suggest a style which will best suit your theme
  • Your hair style you choose for the wedding needs to harmonise with the style of your wedding dress and also with the shape of your face
  • If an interesting veil or headpiece is to be worn, the hairdresser may want a trial run to see how the headpiece will fit the hairstyle
  • Always try out your hairstyle before the wedding
  • Many photographers offer you an engagement portrait as part of your wedding package
  • This is the time to check hairstyle and makeup
  • Choose makeup colours that complement the look of the hairstyle
  • Try focussing on your best features
  • Ensure your hairdresser can cope with the number in your wedding party
  • Make sure that the hairdresser understands the starting time for your photography
  • When booking the appointment for your wedding day give yourself plenty of time before the wedding starts and the photographer will start photography (this is usually at least two hours prior to the start of your service


You are best to use your usual hair dresser. If you feel you need a different hairdresser don't leave this to chance on the day. Do have the hairdresser look after your hair for a period before the wedding. This is being fair on the hairdresser and yourself.
