Planning a wedding and pulling it off without a hitch is no small feat. There are no minor details in a wedding. Planning ahead is of the essence, and this applies to the hairdo as well. About four weeks before the big day, you should start conditioning your hair for the wedding day hairstyle. There may still be time to change your mind about the perfect wedding hairdo.

Few events in life surpass the significance of the wedding day. Girls and young women dream of this perfect day their whole lives. Of course, they want to look their very best for the occasion. For the bride this includes wearing a wedding dress, which is not only beautiful but also expresses her style. The same applies to the hairdo. When it comes to wedding day hairstyles, brides have countless choices, which can be focused only by matching them to the bride’s dreams. You and your groom may prefer loose, flowing hair, an elegant updo or sophisticated braids. On this day, the choices are all yours. Any bridal hairstyle goes as long as it is well planned and executed.

Looking Forward to the Perfect Wedding Hairdo:

Bridal Hair – Four Weeks before the Wedding
There is a connection between looking good and feeling good. The right hairstyle is a big part of feeling confident. The bridal hairstyle is particularly important. Take your time to select the right hairstyle for this very important day in your life.

Do you want to treat your hair to a perm or is your heart set on a stylish short haircut? Hair extensions are an option as well. You may simply want to cut the ends of your hair for healthy looking hair. Your best friends may be willing to be your style consultants and help you select the style which fits you, your style and the style of your wedding dress.

Bridal Hair – Three Weeks before the Wedding
About three weeks before the wedding and after you have made your decision about the wedding day hairstyle, you should make an appointment with your hairdresser. You may not feel positive about a new haircut or a new style. However, there is time to make your peace with the new or improved style.

Bridal Hair – Two Weeks before the Wedding
Nothing beats the glow of radiant luster in your hair and nothing looks less appealing than partially faded hair color with an abrupt color change near the roots.

The best time to refresh your hair color is two weeks before the wedding. Now is the time to decide whether you want to use semi-permanent or permanent hair color. The most important factor in this decision is how comfortable you will be with the results. Close to the wedding is not the time for daring experiments. Simply select your favorite hair color. With your hair freshly colored, you are now ready to decide on both your make-up and hairstyle for the wedding. Let the fun begin!

Wedding Hairstyles – One Week before the Wedding
Updos are the front runners among bridal hairstyles. Elegant large chignons, romantic braided hairstyles and teased sixties updos are also very popular. A little bit of courage will put you ahead of the crowd. You may like to try some wedding hairdos that are a little on the extravagant side. The 1940s and 1960s hairstyles provide perfect blueprints for beautiful bridal hair.

You will feel calmer about your hairstyle choices if you have a hairstyle rehearsal about a week before the wedding. To be on the safe side, you may want to practice every styling step. This cuts down on the jitters before the wedding ceremony.

Bridal Hairstyles – One Day before the Wedding
It is best to shampoo your hair the day before the wedding ceremony. The next day, your hair will be particularly beautiful and manageable. Blow-dry your hair while hanging your head upside down and work a little styling mousse through your hair. This will give your hair the necessary volume and bounce, and it will also help to keep your wedding hairstyle intact for the big day.
