Beautiful Hair – Start Ahead
Getting your hair right for your wedding day is the most important part of your beauty regime. Your Wedding Day Hairstyle will make your entire look. There are many things to consider at this point. Do you want a color on your hair? Do you want it cut? Do you want a dramatic new change? It is wise to be cautious when considering your wedding day hair talk to your hairdresser/stylist and listen to what they have to say, but also listen to your own heart. After all this is your day and you don’t want to look back and regret it.
Six Months before the Wedding
Get into the habit of washing your hair with the correct shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. If you have long hair, apply conditioner to the ends. Do not apply conditioner to roots of oily hair as this will make hair limp. Discuss your wedding day hairstyle with your hairdresser and see what advice she has to offer. She/He might want you to start some special hair care routine now to achieve the desired look then. If you need to grow out a fringe or a perm, this gives you plenty of time. This is also the time to experiment with new hairstyles and colors.
1. Make sure you have your hair trimmed regularly to guard against split ends and avoid overusing heated appliances and styling aids.
2. Regularly oil your hair and get head0massages done.
3. If your hair is chemically treated, take especial care to wash it with with appropriate shampoo and conditioner, in order to achieve and maintain your hair in good condition.
Three Months before the Wedding

Decide upon a final hair-do for the wedding day keeping in mind your wedding gown/dress. Read more on Choosing the Perfect Wedding Hairstyle.
Right now is not the time to let your hair grow longer to achieve a particular look. Choose from the hairstyles suitable for your hair-length.
Coloring your hair. If you’ve never tried this before, use a color-enhancing wash-in/wash-out variety to see if it suits you first, as any drastic changes of color should be approached with caution.
Six Weeks before the Wedding
Have a practice session with your hairdresser so you can see if you like his or her wedding hairstyle suggestions and whether they suit you and your dress neckline. Make sure you take your headdress with you and don’t forget to say if you’re wearing a veil and, if so, whether you plan to take it off at the reception as this will affect the way your style is constructed and how it looks from behind.
Two to Three Weeks before the Wedding
Have any color treatments done now and if you are having a perm, give it time to drop before the big day. Whatever your style, have a trim to sharpen up the shape.
One Day to go
Wash your hair the night before your wedding – freshly washed hair is hard to work with especially if you intend to put it up.
On the Wedding Day
Don’t be afraid to use styling products – if you’re having a very structured or complicated hairstyle, its a good idea to get someone to carry a small can of hairspray so you can keep your hair under control at the merest hint of wind.
