How can I find the right hairdresser for my wedding?

A

If you already have a hairstylist you trust completely who knows your hair better than anyone else, you should have that person create your dream wedding hairstyle. If you don't, it's time to start researching. Ask other brides whose hairstyles you've admired who they went to. Check with your bridal salon for referrals too. Then, once you have a list of options, set up consultations.

When you're meeting with a stylist for the first time, keep in mind that since they don't know your personal tastes, you'll need to bring pictures of what you want. Gather photos from magazines, scour websites, print out hairstyles you like, bring pictures of yourself that show the way you want your locks to look, or photos from a friend's wedding -- anything that will offer a hint about what kind of style you're after.

Finally, make sure you bring your wedding veil and any hair accessories to the consultation (or ask the salon if they have a similar one if yours has not yet arrived) so the potential stylist can factor it into your wedding hairstyle. Once you've made the decision to hire a hairdresser you like, hand over a deposit to save the date and request a receipt.
