3 Wedding Hair Myths... BUSTED

I'm sure you've all heard of them, perhaps your Aunt's granny-in-law's, daughter (or something like that) mentioned something one time when she heard you were going wedding dress shopping.


And thought it was totally appropriate to relay this ridiculously, historical myth...?


..... Thanks Karen, thanks for your input.

Some of these comments are totally cringe-worthy, so sit back with a cuppa (or vino) and watch me squish the F out of these typical bridal hair myths:



1. HAIR UPSTYLES ARE FOR LOW BACK WEDDING DRESSES


This comment drives me INSANE. It’s such an invalid point.

It literally DOES NOT affect the beauty of your dress - whether your hair is up or down.


What DOES MATTER is how comfortable you are and how CONFIDENT you feel.


So. The question you should ask your pretty self is:


Am I most comfortable and confident with my hair up or down?


And BOOM .... More often than not, your answer lies here. This is the one of the first questions I'll ask my brides during the consultation - It's pretty high up on my priority list to


ensure my bride feels comfortable and confident with her choice of hairstyle.



2. YOUR BRIDAL HAIR NEEDS TO BE DONE BEFORE YOUR BRIDAL MAKEUP


This could not be further from reality… Because as wedding hair and makeup artists, we are insanely talented.


Bridal hair and makeup is totally our thing and we naturally have a knack for making things work to ensure your wedding day is absolute perfection.

So if it works out that your hair is done prior to your makeup, your hairstylist can gently move the hair out of the way for the makeup artist, should any of those romantic, soft hair vibes fall in the way.


One pretty-important-note though, if you're chasing those beautiful Hollywood waves, and if your schedule allows, I would highly recommend to have your wedding makeup completed before your wedding hair.


BUT I will leave you with one pretty-major-point, the priority is that it all comes down to the day’s schedule and your makeup artist and hairstylist will collaborate seamlessly together to ensure everyone is done on time and aligned with your day's schedule.



3. THE BRIDE'S HAIR TO BE DONE LAST


Unless you’re the coolest cucumber in the universe, I highly (totally-hand-on-heart) recommend that you - the beautiful bride - have your hair and makeup finished second last (at the very least).

Please, please, please do NOT plan for finishing your makeup or hair last.

The last hour goes a little insanely fast, the photographer arrives, the videographer arrives, and it honestly, all goes a little wild. So if you - the bride - are finished second last, there’ll be time for you to take a breathe, sip some sparkles before walking down the isle.


SO LET'S RECAP:

  • Choose your hairstyle by what you're most comfy with; if you go to an event, do you feel confident if your hair is completely swept off your face?

  • The flow of your wedding day is most important when it comes to having your hair or makeup done first (unless you're planning on those gorgeous Hollywood Waves that are trending).

  • Never plan on having your bridal hair or bridal makeup done last, at the very least - second-last.

Hope these hot little (and myths-busting) tips help you along your wedding planning journey.


Big Love,
