When it comes to wedding planning, most brides let their wedding hair plans fall at the end of the list. Throughout the stress of details and booking vendors, your body is not only taking the toll, but your hair is! Why is it so important to take the time to care for your hair during wedding planning? Healthy Wedding hair is one detail that will help elevate your images and lead to you having that “wedding glow” on your wedding day! Who doesn’t want that extra shine and bounce, and confidence on their wedding day!
I am so excited to bring back the wedding planning series with an amazing list of vendors. For the first week back, we are talking with Shelby Hance, an independent hair stylist at Brush Studios. She shares all her hair tips for brides and how to get that timeless bridal look. This is a jam packed blog post and I am so excited for all of you to learn from Shelby and the secrets of healthy wedding hair!
Meet Shelby and her bridal hair experience
Hi there brides! My name is Shelby Hance. I am an Independent hair stylist at Brush Hair Studio in Fairlawn, Ohio. Along with working in the salon, I also enjoy traveling throughout Northeast Ohio for wedding parties, and styled photo shoots. What I love most about my job is making women look and feel their natural, beautiful self.
My bridal hair experience always begins with a Bridal Agreement. This allows me to receive full details of their vision and what they are wanting for their wedding day.
Alongside the bridal agreement, one other thing I love about doing weddings is going on-site. I love seeing the beautiful venue and celebrating with the bridal party. On site bridal services truly allow the bride to feel so much more at ease, and more comfortable throughout their day.
How to get that Healthy Wedding Day Hair and Timeless Bridal Look
The key to a timeless bridal look is happy healthy hair! I canʼt stress this enough. Here are a few things you can do to get your hair wedding day ready:
- Regular trims to upkeep split ends
- Be sure to know what bridal style you prefer incase your cut requires layers
- Plan hair color goals appropriately to line up with your wedding date. Allow for multiple sessions to get you to your desired hair-color. (This is crucial to maintain healthy hair!)
- Use scrunchies or loose hair bands to prevent breakage, and sleep on a silk pillowcase. This helps prevent knots while sleeping. (Coil Hair ties are the best and I highly recommend them!)
Finding the Perfect Hair Stylist for Your Wedding Day
What is the perfect hair without the perfect stylist? Where to begin? First I advise you to ask your personal stylist first. This ensures that they know your style preferences, personality, and not to mention the relationship that is already established. In case your stylist does not do weddings, Instagram and The Knot are two great resources! You can always search through hashtags or places, and youʼll get to see stylists work right from your phone.
After finding a few stylists you like, I highly recommend booking a trial appointment. This will give you the opportunity to see if their personality and performance is a good fit for you! Lastly, the power of referral is huge! If you’ve been in a bridal party in the past or know someone who just got married, take note of who they worked with. Connections really do matter in the world of weddings, so always be on the lookout!
Thank you Shelby for sharing these tips!! You sure know that we will all be implementing this and sharing this with all future brides! If you are needing a local hair stylist for your wedding day, you can learn more about Shelby here.
