The count down to your wedding includes many activities, gatherings, and stress-related planning that can all influence how you will wear your hair, the color your hair, or how much hair you may pull out on any given day. As you're likely aware, I'm helping my dear engaged sister, on her journey to the alter next summer. We've discussed her hair goals and selected an approximate color for her hair. At nine months to go, we have found ourselves preparing her lovely locks for her engagement photos.
This brings me to an important point: if you haven't picked your "wedding day hair color" by the time you have your engagement pictures are taken, you might want to consider doing just that. If you change your hair color often, like to go light and dark for different seasons, or if you're one of those people that find yourself making a sudden color change every few months I am especially speaking to you. It may be important to have at least a similar hair color in your engagement photos as you will have in your wedding photos. It may not be important to you as well, but it's something to consider as you plan for your wedding day.
For Jaylene's engagement photo session, she came to the salon for a shampoo, blow-out, style, and makeup application on the day of her engagement pictures. One week before her photos, she came in for a fresh color and deep conditioning treatment.
Bride-to-Be Tip: A fresh color a week or so prior to your engagement photos will give you a great fresh look. If you don't color your hair a deep conditioning or shine treatment the day prior to your photos, or a clairifying treatment the week before your your pictures will help your hair look it's absolute best for your photo session. I always recommend that your hair style be kept on the simple, yet pretty side for engagement pictures. I think it's important to look relaxed, like yourself, and with as little possibility for having to primp and fuss with your hair during your photo session. Always remember: hair tends to photograph better than it looks in person. So, don't stress about a few fly-away hairs or the wind tossing your hair during outdoor photos.
