Your wedding day is the most important day of your life, not to mention the most important day for your hair! While there are many things about your big day that you cannot control, how your hair looks is not one of them. Follow these three top tips and ensure you have the beautiful hair you deserve while saying “I do”.

1. Use a deep conditioning hair mask every week running up to the wedding

Hair masks are a god-send for dry hair. They are great if you’re wondering how to make your hair soft or need a bit of TLC on those frayed ends. The important thing with hair masks it to make sure you use them far enough in advance to give them time to work; your hair may feel much softer after a single use, but repeated application will always yield the best long-term results. Try applying at least one deep condition a week throughout your engagement and find more hair care tips on how to make your hair soft here.

2. Get a professional to style your hair

Professionals really know what they are doing when it comes to wedding hair so it’s important to involve them in the beauty prep. Book a trial session where you can try different styles to pick the one that best suits the look you’re going for on your big day. Talk to the stylist about appropriate hair care in the run up to the big day too. If you have any questions like how to treat your damaged hair and make it look healthier before the wedding, now is your chance to ask them.

3. Avoid anything that might weaken your hair prior to the wedding

There are loads of things that can cause damage to hair, and if you want your locks to look healthy and perfect for your special day then it’s important you avoid them as much as possible. Sunshine can dry out the roots and ends, so wear a sun protection spray and accessorize with a hat. Likewise, harsh dyes can be pretty damaging so only use good quality products and remember to moisturise!

If you’re preparing for a summer wedding, don’t forget that chlorine and sea salt are also common causes of hair damage so always rinse your hair thoroughly after hitting the pool or the sea, or consider investing in a swimming cap if you really want to protect those locks.

These are our top tips on getting the best wedding hair you can. If you have questions like how to make your hair soft or what style to choose, be sure to consult a professional as far in advance of your big day as possible.
