Choosing the Perfect Hairstyle for Your Perfect Day

By Ramona Kelly

After you select your wedding venue and your dress, it’s time to think about your hair!

There are several important things to consider when choosing your hairstyle. Do you want your dress to stand out or your hair? Is the wedding inside or outside? What will the weather be? Do you want to add accessories or extensions to your hair? Would you like hair color to accentuate your overall look? I always advise my brides to schedule deep conditioning treatments and clear hair glazes before the wedding to help with the health of their hair. Remember, the healthier your hair is, the shinier it will be in photos.

Next, I suggest bringing pictures from Pinterest and even Googled images of wedding hair. Book your stylist at least six months in advance of your wedding date. Make sure you do a trial run at least two to three months before the big day to make sure you are happy with your choice. Remember, you never know if something will work until you try it. No matter what the photos look like, your hair may not work the same way.

If you are having a large wedding, it may be easier for your stylist to come to you. I am doing an onsite wedding in November where I will be preparing the bride and bridesmaids for her perfect day. If you have a larger bridal party, I can arrange a team of hairstylists and makeup artists to assist with your big day. That way, the bride and bridal party can stay in one place the entire day which alleviates stress for the bride.

I am the owner of Salon Gabriel, a salon suite which is located inside of Sola Salon Studios in Myrtle Beach. Brides enjoy receiving customized service to fit their needs, and can request special snacks and drinks for their consultations. In larger salons there can be too many distractions, and the bride isn’t made a priority. The experience here is all about the bride.
