Giving The Perfect Wedding Hair Experience


May is here, and that means wedding season. This usually lasts from May to October, so get ready to brush up on your favorite elegant looks. Brides undergo a lot of stress, so, understandably, they might be a little particular about how their hair looks. It’s their crown for their shining day. Here’s how to make the process easier for everyone involved.

The Consultation

Not every bride knows exactly what they want. They might be looking for the one thing that “feels right.” Behind The Chair has a great chart to help with the original booking. Make sure to remain calm and reassuring during the process.

They’re likely going to change their mind. It’s good to figure out their thoughts early on in the process. Patience is going to be your best friend in this situation. Light a Lomatherapy candle before their arrival to give your salon a calming scent and atmosphere.

Prep Work, Prep Work, Prep Work

If your client schedules their wedding hair appointment in advance, be sure to encourage them to focus on treatments for the days leading up to the event. You want to have them walk in with the healthiest hair possible so you can work your magic.

We recommend having them leave with Living Proof’s Revitalizing Treatment and Dry Scalp Treatment. This will jumpstart hair health from the root to the tips.

A Month Before the Big Day

If your client is thinking about getting a new haircut, make sure that they do it a month in advance to give the hair time to settle. This is also a great backup plan for it to grow out a little if the look isn’t what they were imagining. Send them home with things that will keep their hair healthy and strong before you work for it. The PRAVANA Intense Therapy Treat Extra Healing Masque gradually heals and softens the hair, so it’s gorgeous and easy to work with on the big day.

The Day of The Wedding

You’ll have prepped for this. Stock up on texturizing sprays to get the grit you need to keep the hair in place for the whole event, we love Milbon’s Signature Creative Style Dry Texturizing Spray 4. Hair that has some texture to it is also much easier to style because there’s less slippage. Spritz a little KEVIN.MURPHY SHIMMER.SHINE spray over the top so they’ll have a gorgeous glow when they walk down the aisle.

Weddings are the most powerful combination of stress and joy—stock up on everything you need to keep things going smoothly on Premier’s webstore.
