Tips For Getting Great Hair Before Your Event
Preparing your hair for an event doesn’t just start the morning of your event. In fact, most stylists suggest prepping months in advance for the best results. EasyEventPlanning.com can help you with hair tips for leading up to your wedding or prom and tips for the day-of.
Leading Up To Your Wedding or Prom:
1) Plan Ahead – Take care of any coloring treatments and perms at least a month prior to your event. This allows time for your color to soften and look more natural, and if, for some reason, it doesn’t turn out looking the way you want, you have plenty of time to fix it.
2) Trim It – Make sure you get haircuts often to avoid split ends. Schedule your final trim a few weeks before your event so that your hair is at its best.
3) Make the Most of your Consultation - When trying out different hairstyles, wear a color and neckline similar to your dress to see what your hair will look like the day-of. Bring any accessories you’ll want to incorporate the day-of, such as a tiara or flowers.
4) Time It – Clock how long the trial hair appointment takes you and then add a half an hour just in case of any mishaps on your big day. Try to secure the latest possible time slot for your appointment so that your hair looks perfect at the start of your event.
5) Listen to your Stylist’s Advice – Ask your stylist for tips on how to make your hair look its best. If he/she advises you not to brush your hair for a few months or use a home olive oil treatment, listen.
6) For Damp/Humid Climate – Frizz is the biggest concern in this climate. Prep your hair by using a frizz-fighting serum that can be applied to damp hair and combed through. If you have curly hair, don’t try to straighten your hair in this climate.
7) Hot Weather Climate – If your event is taking place in a hot, dry climate, use shampoo and conditioner that contains a moisturizer for the weeks leading up to your event. If you have oily hair, however, don’t apply conditioner to the roots, as that will make your hair oilier. Avoid styling your hair with heat whenever possible to avoid causing further damage to your hair.
8) Sunscreen – If you plan to be out in the sun for any length of time, apply sunscreen (SPF 30 works best) to the tips of your hair. This will minimize damage and help preserve color.
Day-Of Your Wedding or Prom:
9) Wear a Button Up Shirt – Before getting your hair done, slip into a button-up shirt so that when it’s time to get into your gown, you won’t have to ruin your hair.
10) Loosen Up – To avoid an aching scalp and headache, make sure your hair isn’t tightly pulled into an updo.
