You wouldn’t walk down the aisle in a wedding dress that you’d never tried on, so why would you attempt a bridal “do” without a trial run?
I can believe it, but I still hear bridal horror stories of brides who have a hairstylist do their hair for the first time on the day of their wedding. I don’t care how busy you are or how much you have on your plate; you must have a hair trial. A pre-wedding consultation is essential to your beauty and peace of mind on your all-important day. If you’re getting married in a location that you can visit, then by all means you’ll want to meet with your stylist and actually try out various looks. But, destination weddings are so popular. How do you choose your stylist? How do you have a trial with a stylist that you probably won’t meet until a day before your wedding?
Social media. That’s right social media is the easiest way for a stylist to show you her work and it’s the best way for you to share your vision of your dream “do”. Just as an example, you could make a Pinterest board to find styles that you think might look good on you. Maybe the stylist you’re considering has a Facebook page of their work? You can easily share looks and ideas to try out when you arrive at your destination venue for the actual pre-wedding consultation. Remember if you have a look in mind of what you’d like or what you absolutely don’t want, you should definitely share your wishes.
