Make your hair the ultimate bridal accessary

Every bride wants her hair to be the ultimate bridal piece. With upstyles and lowstyles, half up half down and side sweeps, brides have a lot to choose from.

But Urban Dolls are here to help with their top tips! They recommend cutting your hair about six weeks before the wedding.

If you cut your hair too close to the big day, you risk making it too blunt at the ends and curled styles just will not hold as well.

Urban Dolls’ very own Cynthia Lynch suggests having your colour applied about two weeks before the big day because nobody wants their roots showing walking down the aisle!

Have a bit of you time and treat yourself to a nourishing hair treatment around the week of the wedding to make sure your hair is in top shape and is the ultimate accessory.

It doesn’t matter what kind of style your having for your big day, Cynthia reccommends having your hair washed and blast dried from the night before and absolutely no straighteners allowed! Your stylist can take care of that business. However, if you’re going for a certain type of style, you may pin curl it the night before.

Choosing a hair style can be quite daunting, but try and keep it with your own personal style says Cynthia. Photographs last a lifetime and you don’t want to be cringing and trying to hide photos, just because you don’t like your hair.

The internet is great for ideas but Cynthia reminds people to be realistic too and to try not to be somebody else on your big day. It is all about what suits you and your face and your dress (and of course always take the weather in to account!)

Ask your stylist what their opinion is as to what suits you; they are, after all the professionals! Trials are extremely important too. Cynthia also warns people to have said yes to the dress before booking your hair trial. This should be done within six months of your day.

Urban Dolls also suggest that you don’t bring more than two people with you for your trial.

Too many well-meaning opinions don’t always help. Of course, at the end of the day, as long as you’re happy with your hair, who cares, right!?
