Flaunting a chic updo for the most important day of your life requires patience and a lot of bobby pins. Your D-day hairstyle not only needs to look flawless from all angles, but also needs to last from pre-ceremony until the last set of guests bid their farewell. Obviously, you don’t want your hair to transform from neat and fresh to messy and unmanageable by the end of the day.
Today, brides are all for natural wedding hair-dos with lots of volume and wispy pieces instead of slicked back looks. The day-long ceremonies can loosen up your hairstyle, thereby bringing your beauty game down. Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with tips on how to keep your hair game going strong all through your big day.
Prep your hair well
Dull, dry locks is the biggest nightmare for any bride to-be. Therefore, it’s ideal to treat your tresses to an intensive and highly nourishing hair mask or hair spa a week or two before your D-day. Doing this will help you flaunt smooth and glossy locks on the most important day of your life.
Style unwashed hair
We understand it’s the most important day of your life and you need to feel fresh and clean from head to toe. However, if you want your hairstyle to hold all day, it’s not the best idea to wash your hair on the same day as your wedding. Washing your hair makes it too soft to hold any hairstyle. Instead, spritz some dry shampoo the night before your big day for clean and volumised hair.
Hair mousse at your rescue
If your hairstyle has a lot of detailing, then it’s best to use a hair mousse or a styling cream to hold the hairstyle in place. Try the TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Styling which is good for any length and texture. Apply this styling cream before as well as after your blow dry. The texture of the cream will help it maintain its shape throughout the day.
Begin high and tight
Be it tousled down or updo, keeping your hair high up and secured at the start of the day, will allow the curls to set and volume to keep its shape. If your tight curls are pinned up on your head, they will look perfectly relaxed and tousled by the end of the ceremony.
Do not touch your hair
Once your hair is perfectly styled and in place, avoid touching them at all through the day. Your fingers have natural oils on them that can transfer onto your hair, thereby making it fall sooner than it should. That’s not all! The oils will also weigh your hair down, ruining some of the volume.
