We got in touch with the experts at Daniel Galvin and spoke to Frankie Pullen, one of the Style Directors, to find out how to achieve simply stunning wedding hair for your big day!
What are your ten top tips for beautiful wedding hair?
- Start working on the 3 Cs (cut, colour condition) of your hair 6 months pre-wedding. You should have a full consultation with your colourist and stylist and make sure that they are working towards the end result for your wedding day and they will put you on a regime to keep your hair in the best condition possible.
- Put together a mood board of all the things you like then your hairdresser can take elements of each and make it work for your hair.
- Accessorise. Think outside the box, that lovely antique broach could be incorporated into the hair instead of a off the shelf clip. I prefer to use tiny flower blossoms rather than big flowers and getting the florist to wire up so you can thread through hair.
- Add extra volume and thickness with some sneaky hair extensions that clip in. No one will ever know and it gives you instant extra lustrous hair! Alt least 75% of my brides have them in!
- If you have virgin hair consider having a few highlights to enhance your natural blonde or a vegetable colour to richen up your brunette hair.
- When researching hairdos look up red carpet hair as these tend to be a lot more on trend and subtle than some of the scary dos you will see when you search wedding hair!
- Don’t just tong your hair to get in those waves, pin curl as you go. This will make the curls last longer and look more natural.
- Think classic, don’t do something that you will look back at pictures in 10years and think why!
- Think about what happens when the veil comes out? Lots of my brides opt for wearing their hair up with the veil and then take the veil out later on and let the hair come down with it so they get to show off those gorgeous long locks! Why not change half way through the day!
Classic wedding hairstyles that never go out of fashion?
- The Brigitte Bardot ‘crown up’ and volumised with soft edges and pieces at front down.
- The demure chignon aka French pleat, understated classic
- Soft Hollywood waves, think very red carpet
- Boho summer wedding with braids added in, kinda mermaidy!
