Bridal Beauty | Quick Hair and Makeup Tips for Your Wedding Day

Posted on October 4th, 2010 by Mandy Webster

There are many things to consider when planning your look for your wedding day. The dress may get the most attention, but your hair and makeup are equally important. When choosing the right bridal hairstyle for your big day, you should always talk to your stylist in advance, and be sure you let her know what type of veil, tiara or other headpiece you would like to wear. If you want an intricate style, your stylist may need to incorporate the head piece into her design.

Okay, sure… you may be able to choose a ‘plain Jane’ wedding hairstyle and show up at the salon the day of the wedding to get your hair done. But, if you want something special, you want to choose an expert stylist who can design a unique bridal hairstyle just for you. And this is something that requires both talented hands and an artful eye.

Samantha Fancher, a stylist at Shear Designs (located at 710 W Fayette Ave in Effingham, IL) says one of the most important things to remember when choosing a hair stylist/makeup artist for your big day is not to “pick someone who is going to just sit you down, get you done in 30 minutes, take your money and kick you out the door.” For your wedding day, you want to choose an expert stylist and/or makeup artist who will take the time to make sure you end up with the exact look of your dreams for your big day.

A few quick tips from Samantha:

  • Pick a hairstylist who is going to take the time to do a practice run and make sure you are happy with your hair; nobody needs to be crying over their hair on their wedding day.
  • Make sure you choose a stylist that will listen to you and take into consideration your dress style, veil and other hair accessories, the type of wedding, wedding venue, etc.
  • Never wash your hair the day of the wedding, as it will be too clean and soft to hold a curl. Instead, wash your hair the night before, but be sure it is dry before you sleep on it. Read more »
