During your wedding hair trial, you'll finally get a sneak peek at your bridal look! While the whole process is straightforward, it's not just a regular hair appointment. There are few things you should avoid doing to have a successful wedding hair trial that exceeds all your expectations.
1. Not Sharing Your Inspiration Ahead of Time
This happens more often than you think: brides find the style they'd like to try, but never send the photos to the wedding hairstylist. Showing inspirational photos (and photos of your actual hair) before the appointment will help determine if you can actually have the hairstyle -- or if you need to do something extra to have the style (a.k.a. buy clip-in hair extensions).
2. Not Taking the Time to Enjoy Your Appointment
You're in the middle of wedding planning and you're busy with work. You decide to bring your laptop with you and work while getting your hair curled and teased. My advice is to take time off for your appointment and so you can enjoy the process as well as get to know your vendor. It's really important to take the opportunity to communicate and collaborate with your hairstylist during your trial.
3. Not Wearing the Right Clothing
You want your wedding hair trial to give you the closest idea of what you're going to look like on the day. Make sure you wear the color of your wedding dress with a neckline similar to your gown. An updo or a half-down will look totally different if you come to your trial wearing a black t-shirt or a turtleneck top.
