Your countdown to beautiful bridal hair

The date has been set, the dress found. Now it’s time to start planning your most important hairstyle ever and our founder, Inanch, counts us down:

12 months to go…
It’s never too early to start talking about wedding day hair, especially if you’re planning on growing your hair or changing colour, that way your hairdresser can book in all the appointments you need in advance.

10 months to go…
As soon as you’ve sorted your venue, tell your hairdresser. They may also need to book time out of the salon to come and do your hair so the more notice you can give the better, advises Inanch.

9 months to go…
Now is the time to start thinking about the health of your hair so that it looks it’s best. As well as booking in for in-salon conditioning treatments at every appointment, make sure you’re using an at-home mask once a week at home. We love Philip Kingsely’s Elasticizer. I know it sounds boring but it really does make a difference and when you’ve put so much time and effort into every other aspect of your big day doesn’t it make sense?

6 months to go…
The dress is ordered, time to show your stylist. Now is when you can actually start planning your look. Take into consideration if you’re wearing a veil or hair accessory or if you want to to be able to change your hair for the evening party. Take a look at our collections for more hair inspiration.

5 months to go…

Nearly all of my brides wear extensions as it makes such a difference to the appearance of your hair for photos. Try them out before your big day to get used to how they feel in your hair and to try the look you want with them to check you can’t see any bonds.

3 months to go…
If you have your accessories and veil then have a trial of your hairstyle with your hairdresser. I always get my brides to try and keep the style in place for as long as they can after the appointment – rather than taking it down straight away – to get a feel for how comfortable it is and to check that it stays in place more than just a few hours!

2 weeks to go…
This is the time to get your ends trimmed and your roots and colour sorted. By having your cut and colour done a few weeks before your big day it will still look really fresh but more natural.

1 week to go…
If you’ve decided to opt for extension then now is the time to get them in.
