We’re hair for you

When it comes to hair styles, it can be a minefield at the best of times never mind when you’re a bride-to-be. However, help is at hand.

As the wedding season fast approaches here are some tips just for you from John Harvey at Peter Mark's Senior Creative Team:

“I'd recommend before your big day to book an appointment for a trial. This will give you a chance to communicate your likes and dislikes and give you an opportunity to try out a few variations without any pressure.

We would suggest scheduling your trial after you have chosen the dress as the neckline, silhouette and feel will influence the overall look and may result in you rethinking your hair style choice.

It will be helpful on the day if you remember to get your stylist to take some pictures of your hair after the trail so you both have a visual guide.

Bring a few variations of different looks similar to the one you’re trying to achieve ahead of your trial.

It is important to be aware that just because a style works in a picture, it may not be perfect for your face shape, neck length, hair texture or length. Being a little flexible in your looks, as you may want or need more height, less height, less structure or just a little looser and not as structured, is a good starting point.

When searching for visual inspiration we always tell our clients to visit the Peter Mark Pinterest page which has a special board designated to bridal hair. You can find it at

That beautiful California beach wedding with the perfectly pretty hair you found on the internet may not be the most practical style given the Irish weather. In the same way, the season you get married in can play a part in the style or fabric of the dress, it can also play a part in your hair style. Factors like the natural texture of your hair and your event’s location will play a role in the finished look.

If you’re having a spring/summer wedding, you can play a little looser and wear your hair down, but if parts or all of your day is outdoors, you may require pinning some of it up. Or for instance if you’re having an autumn/winter wedding, you may opt for something much more structured and controlled to combat any wind or rain.

And finally, once you’ve booked the date, remember it’s never too early to book your appointment especially if you’re getting married during the busy bridal season or most likely on a Saturday. Also don’t forget to include your pre wedding cut and colour appointment, that way it’s once less thing to have to think about.”
