“You’ll want to look back on your wedding photos and still like how your hair looked, so keep it elegant,” says Martin Crean, Creative Director of London’s Mode salon. “There’s a lot of pressure for brides to look absolutely perfect on their wedding day.

You need to be able to enjoy your day without having to worry if your curls are falling out, or if the grips will stay in place. That’s why it’s essential to build up a relationship with your stylist so they know exactly what your hair is like and how it behaves.

Only then will you be confident that you’ve chosen a style that you’ll be comfortable with. As a result, you’ll be able to enjoy your wedding day, knowing your hair is looking its bridal best!”
