There are so many tiny details that go into making up a wedding. One of our favorites is selecting the right hairstyle, stylist to work with and accessories to pull off a final look. While deciding what you plan on doing with your hair can be difficult, at Accolades Salon Spa, we offer a range of services including hair coloring, cutting, styling, waxing, massage, skincare, makeup, facials, manicures, pedicures, and more! Essentially we are your one-stop-shop for achieving the look you’ve always dreamed of. Here’s a bit more about wedding hair prep for either member of the big day:
For the Brides
For brides, wedding hair preparations are slightly more involved than a grooms. We recommend collecting images of hair styles that you like to help create a good idea of what feeling and look you are going for. Three to five months before the big day is a great time to schedule an appointment with a stylist for a consultation. This also affords enough time to change your color, length and style of hair. Bring along any hair accessories that you plan on using on the big day including barrettes, brooches, pins, hair combs, tiaras or veils. We also recommend bringing in a picture or two of your dress and a few other key details to help align on vision. Talk openly with your stylist as any good stylist will work hard to find a look that you are comfortable with and that’s doable with your hair. One to two months out is a great time for a practice run so any adjustments can be made as necessary with plenty of room to spare.
On the big day, let us work our magic while you sit back, relax, and get ready to make memories!
For the Grooms
It is important to look your best on your big day and this requires attention to detail. For any groom, we recommend a good haircut at least 5-10 days before the wedding. If you plan on making any radical changes, we suggest three to five months out to really let a new style sink in and look natural (or grow back out). A few days before the ceremony is the perfect time for a trip to the salon for a bit of pampering. From facials to waxing, manicures or pedicures to a good, close shave, taking the steps to put effort into your grooming routine will pay off. On the big day, at Accolades we recommend one last visit to the salon for a last minute style and one last shave to ensure you look your best.
That’s wedding hair prep in a nutshell. Give us a call as we’d love to help make your big day come to fruition with the style you deserve!
