Wedding Day Hair: Top Tips
A practice run is essential for several reasons...
When Anne Veck is not sharing her skills with the industry through training, she’s working on her next hair shoot. She is now so much in demand, she exclusively works with Brides and Wedding Parties on Saturdays.
“I love doing wedding hair. It’s such an honour to be a part of what is often the most special day of people's lives and the excitement in the morning is so much fun. Many of the Brides I work with have been clients of mine for years and it’s a lovely feeling to be part of their big day. I like my Brides to feel glamorous while still feeling like themselves. The hair should complement the dress, your personal style and your personality.
“Here are my top tips on how to prepare your hair for your wedding day:
“You’ve got the dress, now it’s time to complete the look. When it comes to your hair, get to your hairdresser straight away. I’m not talking style, I’m talking cut, colour and condition, which can sometimes be a journey. Invest in professional shampoos and treatments to get your hair in tip top condition. Your hair will complete your look, and you want to glow from head to toe on the day, and looking back in years to come.
“When it comes to the style on the big day, it’s essential to come in for a consultation. Bring photos of styles you like with you so both you and your stylist are on the same page and bring any hair accessories or veils you will wear on the day too. A practice run is essential for several reasons. I can’t tell you how many times Brides to Be have had a certain style in mind, but when we tried it we both agreed it wasn’t for them. The second reason is so your wedding morning will be as stress free as possible for you, your wedding party and your stylist!
“Most importantly, you should enjoy it! If you feel more comfortable in your home, or your hotel room, most hairdressers will come to you on the morning. Getting ready can be part of the fun, as you will have your mum and wedding party with you.”
