FAQs about Chic Engagement Hairstyle Ideas
It’s the big day and of course, we’re here to untangle your questions
Q1 How to prep your hair for an elaborate engagement hairstyle?
A. Any engagement hairstyle requires your hair to be at its healthiest state in order to handle all the heat-styling sprays, pins and braids it is subjected to. Pay close attention to the kind of products you are using and steer clear of paraben and sulfate-based shampoos and conditioners. It is inevitable, you will be getting a lot of styling, curls and waves done on your hair. So start by making sure that the ends are well-nourished. Plus, eat well, sleep enough and get regular hair spas or deep conditioning sessions done. You can also get a treatment to boost the pH level of your scalp, thus keeping it in prime shape.
Q2 What is the best way to avoid damage while doing an engagement hairstyle?
A. Do not wash your hair on the same day that it will be getting styled and ask your stylist to use a lot of heat protecting sprays in order to minimise the damage.
Q3 What are some engagement hairstyling mistakes that you should avoid?
A. Many wedding hair stylists will attest to this, but following trends blindly and actually doing stuff that's not ‘you’ is the worst mistake you can make on your engagement day. There’s no point in following trends if the chosen style does not suit you. You want to look like yourself on your wedding day, not someone out of a bridal magazine. The proof of this lies in the fact that a good hairstylist will never ask you about what hair trends you are into. Instead, they would work with you to come up with a look that suits your unique features, face shape and current haircut and colour.
