Before you say “I do” you will want to make sure your hair do is absolutely perfect for your special day. Although you’ve probably already started pinning updos and scrolling through pages of wedding hair accessories, when it comes to planning your bridal hairstyle for the big day, it’s important to start with who your wedding hair stylist will be.

Weddings can really add up and something that you should always set aside budget for is your bridal look including your dress, makeup and of course, your hair.
Once you have your budget determined and your dress purchased, you will have a better sense of how much you have remaining when choosing your hair stylist. Begin asking for quotes and any that exceed your limit should be eliminated.
Take a look through the wedding hair stylists’ that you’re considering portfolios to get a sense of their style and capabilities and make sure that it aligns with your taste and style.
With all the salons out there, it can be tough to weed through the legit stylists so taking a look at their portfolio is always a good start.
3. Ask family and friends
Who do you trust more than your family and friends? They always have your back and they won’t refer to you any hair stylist they don’t believe will give you the best look for your locks on your big day.
Not only will asking around provide you with more options, you’re almost guaranteed to get honest opinions from the ones who love you most.
4. Read reviews
Of course you can trust your friends and family’s opinion, but it also doesn’t hurt to read the hair stylists’ Google or Facebook reviews that you’re considering. Check out the reviews from their previous clients to get the scoop on their timelines, capabilities and their cost.
5. Book a consultation
Once you’ve narrowed down your search to a couple of stylists that you believe would work best, the next step is to book a consultation to meet them. This is your chance to ask all your questions and discuss your dream wedding hair style.
6. Book a hair trial
If you find the consultation stage goes well, book a time for a hair trial to give that hairstylist and the hair style you’re considering a test drive before hiring them. That way, you won’t be getting any big surprises on your big day!
