Preparing Your Hair for Your Wedding: 11 Months to Go

By September 29, 2009

Follow me on:

Preparing your hair for the most photographed day of your life is really, lets face it, important. No one wants their heads to be a hot mess on their wedding day. My recently engaged sister, has set her wedding date for the 21st of August. Only the most humid and frizz producing month out of the year (no pressure, right). So, at our first appointment, we discussed products to get her hair in tip top shape and to grow faster and healthier over the next year.

At the eleven months and counting point we had another appointment scheduled to discuss her color. Jaylene has medium to dark brown hair with ashy tones. Her hair has been every color under the sun over the past several years. We decided that her hair looks best in a warm blond with lighter blond highlights. It goes nicely with her skin tone and sets off her eyes beautifully.

bridal hair color adviceWhy are we discussing her wedding day color 11 months before her wedding date? We chose to at least be "in the ballpark" so her color can be easily maintained over the next 11 months. With this color technique, we will simply touch up her regrowth every 4 to 6 weeks, rather than change her hair color and subject the mid-shaft and ends of her hair to color or highlighting on a regular basis. This will aid in growing her hair out and keeping her hair healthy for the big day.

After Jaylene's color was completed, we very very lightly trimmed the ends of hair. Her fresh look was perfect for her engagement party that we threw for her this past weekend!

Bride-to-Be Tip: If you color your hair, commit to a color that can easily be maintained in the months leading up to your wedding. This will prevent damage, breakage, and promote healthy growth!
