detail: hair! For you, your bridesmaids and even your sweet flower girl, wedding photos are riding on getting everyone's hairstyle just right. Heed this tried-and-true advice to get the best wedding day hairstyles with less stress.
Hairstyles for the Bride
Most salons offer trial styles for a small fee, usually the same price as an updo or blowout, depending on your selected look. Bring along a trusted friend who you can count on to speak her mind and help convey what you want to the stylist. Make sure to time how long it takes to style your hair. This will help you realistically plan you wedding day timeline so you allow ample time to get ready without being rushed.
If your current hairstyle isn't cooperative in getting that look, clip-in extensions may be the answer. Whether you need length, volume or both, clip-in extensions can accomplish what you need without the cost and hair damage of traditional extensions.

Hairstyles for Bridesmaids
Whichever style you choose and rules you set in place, make sure everyone in your wedding party has ample time to touch up their hair and makeup before the post-ceremony photos. Have a designated area nearby stocked with hairspray, hot tools, hair pins and anything else your entourage will need to make sure the photos are Style Me Pretty-worthy.
Which of these helpful tips speak to you, most? I agree with the hair trial, that's a biggy! Don't go into your big day without having your hair trial. If you're doing it yourself, obviously it's not needed, but if you're going to a salon, get the feel for 1) the stylist whom will be with you on your wedding day 2) get the feel for what your hair will look like. If you aren't comfortable with the look you see, do speak up to the stylist. I used to work for a wedding hair and makeup company (I did their marketing and social media), but I know how it goes and have seen it first hand from the salon's perspective, and I've been a bride myself, that had a trial. The stylists want to make you and your bridal ladies happy as possible. Sometimes a look you thought you'd love turns out not the right, and any stylist worth that title will always provide options, and possibly a second trial to get it right.
