3 Tips for Choosing a Bridal Hairstyle, Manhattan, New York

Your hair will become one of your most stand-out accessories on your wedding day. You’ll need to choose a hairstyle that matches both your personal style and the overall theme of your wedding. Use these tips as you work with your hairstylist to find the one that will make you look your best on the big day.

Guide to Choosing the Perfect Wedding Day Hair

1. Determine Your Wedding Style

You’ll want to determine your hairstyle after you’ve made some other key decisions. You should have your venue booked, dress bought, and color scheme selected. Bring photos and information about all these things when you visit your hairstylist. These details will help them understand your wedding style, whether it’s elegant-modern or boho-chic.

2. Start an Inspiration Board

Look at wedding inspiration blogs and images online, and save everything that interests you. This could include hair colors, lengths, styles, and accessories such as flowers, pins, or veils. Bring your favorite images to the beauty salon when discussing styles. Pictures will help your stylist understand what you want much better than descriptive words.

3. Schedule a Trial

This gives you the opportunity to decide whether you really like the way it looks and determine if you want any changes. If possible, bring your dress and veil so you can see how the entire ensemble will fit together. Because miscommunications between stylist and client can occur, the trial run will help clear up any of those ahead of time, avoiding a wedding day emergency.
