Before your big day, you’ll want to prep and make sure you look your absolute best. You’ve chosen your bridal hair style, made your waxing appointment, and settled on your makeup style. Now it’s time to get those lovely tresses colored. Make your appointment early and consult with your stylist, to help ensure you’re happy with the style and color you wear on your big day!
When you come to your initial consultation, be sure to bring plenty of samples showing what you have in mind. It’s best to bring at least 3-5 photos of what you want, to give the stylist a firm idea of your goal. If you’re not certain of what you want, your stylist can help. She’s trained in matching your shade to your skin tone and style.
You may be a bit embarrassed to admit that you’ve tried a box of hair color from the drugstore. Don’t be. It’s absolutely essential that your stylist knows your hair’s history. Different treatments affect your hair, and she’ll need to know what’s been done so that she doesn’t try layering chemicals on old treatments, and causing damage.
Plan to Spend Time
Hair color can take a surprisingly long time to apply. Depending upon the shade and the degree of change, expect your appointment to last from several hours to a full day. Remember that a quality job can’t be rushed, and talk to your stylist in advance about how long your color will take.
If your natural color is a luscious pitch black, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to go honey-blonde without extensive treatment. Your stylist knows what’s possible and what’s reasonable. She can also give you advice about what will look best with your skin tone. Take advantage of her expertise and let her help you look your best on your big day.
