Getting married? How to plan your wedding-day hair.


When you are planning your special day, there are so many things on your task list! One thing you shouldn’t have to stress over – bridal hair. Celebrating your occasion is one of our favorites things to do at Detroit Blows and we have some quick and easy tips to help you plan the perfect look for your day.

1. Schedule your consultation:

Prior to your special day, you are definitely going to want to do a run-through of your look. Make sure to schedule your hair consultation weeks before your actual event. This way, if there are any hiccups, you won’t feel stuck.

2. Don’t leave behind your accessories:

Wearing a veil or a flower crown? Make sure to bring whatever accessories you want to be showcased in your hair that day. This way our stylists can plan around it.

3. Bring your inspiration:

If your wedding is a beach theme, your style and hair will be much different than if you are hosting the occasion at a winery. Bring your wedding inspiration photos, and any hair photos you may have come across that will inspire your stylist.

4. Take pictures in your wedding dress:

There may be special details on your wedding gown you don’t want the crowd to miss. Your hair should go perfectly with your dress. A low-cut back would require a different hair-do than an off-the-shoulder look. Make sure to bring a picture of the front and back of your dress (preferably with you in it).

5. Consider the weather:

Mother nature can take over at any event, and you want your hair to fight back! If you are getting married oceanside, we need to consider the breeze, but if your wedding is in an air-conditioned environment, the sky’s the limit.

6. How much time do you have?:

There are two types of people, only one of them enjoy the mornings. If your wedding is at 10 am, and you may have to spend hours getting prepped, consider your timing when you consider your style. Remember you have pre and post photos and many other things to do on your day, you may not want to spend a majority of that time getting your hair done.
