At Fluid, we have compiled a list that will help create the best look for you. A timeline, to help guide you in the months and days leading up to your wedding.
Simply put, our goal is to ensure that your hair is truly spectacular on your Wedding Day
Your Wedding Day is one of the biggest days of your lives together. Whether you are having hundreds of guests or just a special few, a traditional wedding or a contemporary ceremony it is important to make sure every consideration is taken to ensure that everything is as perfect as possible, and that takes time.
It is a day filled with love, excitement and pictures, lots & lots of pictures. Today everyone has a camera, in order to ensure that you look fabulous in every image, we suggest you have your first hair consultation a full year before your big day.
We want you to look your best, remembering that these are the pictures that will be cherished for the rest of your lives together.
Planning your Wedding Hairstyle
should start about a year ahead of the big day.
6 Months to 1 year before your Wedding
-Once you have your dress or you know exactly the silhouette and neckline you will be wearing, it is time to book your initial consultation and bring pictures with you so that you can show the stylist what you are looking for.
-This will give you enough time to grow out your hair if it is required for the style you are interested in.
-You should start planning your hair colour as soon as you know how your hair will be styled.
-If you are thinking about trying out a new colour do it now, you need to be sure that you love it, before the wedding
-Many brides include a Keratin Smoothing System as part of their wedding hair plan, using it as insurance against bad weather, no bride wants their wedding hair to be ruined by rainy weather.
-If you are considering a Keratin Smoothing System as part of your wedding hair plan, we would suggest you try it out 6 months in advance, so that you can be sure you are happy with the new look.
5- 6 Months Before
the Big Day
-If you haven't already had a consultation, with both Hair & Make-up, be sure to do it now!
-Bring pictures with you so that you can show the stylist what you are looking for, you can bring your veil or headpiece with you so that your stylist knows exactly what they will be working with.
-If you are still thinking about test driving a new colour, don't delay, do it now.
-Be sure that you have booked all of the appointments you will need in advance, you don't want to take the chance that your stylist cannot accommodate you.
3 -4 Months before the Wedding
-Hair extensions come in many different styles, some that last for months, others that you use only for the day, clip in varieties that will add volume and fullness to your hair, extensions can offer an opportunity to create different styles.
-If you are planning on adding extensions to your hair, now is the time to make sure that they have been ordered. It can take time for the extensions to arrive and to have them highlighted or coloured to match your hair perfectly.
1-2 Months prior to the Big Day
-Have hair & makeup trials, be sure to bring your veil, headpieces or any other adornments that you will be wearing for your wedding, that way your stylist can show you how your hair will look on the big day.
-This would also be a good time to arrange a dress fitting, allowing you to see how your dress will look with your hair and makeup, leaving your team enough time to make any adjustments, if required.
*Be sure to take lots of pictures!
-Conditioning treatments will ensure that you have the healthiest hair for your wedding day,
This is the time to give your hair some extra love and attention. Whether weekly or bi-weekly will depend on the particular needs of your hair, It doesn't matter if your hair is natural or "enhanced"; deep conditioning treatments will make all the difference, making sure your hair is at its best on your big day.
-Hair in need of a little extra love should begin the treatments 3 months before your wedding day.
*Dry frizzy hair won't look healthy and glossy for your big day!
Be sure to reconfirm all hair & beauty appointments for the Wedding Day!
1- 3 Weeks before the wedding
-Brides now is the time to have your final pre-wedding day hair appointments, make sure that anything that needs touching up is done, now is not the time to experiment.
-Your hair cut should be done not more than done 3 to 4 week before the wedding day.
-Kerasilk Smoothing System should be done about 2 to 3 weeks before the big day.
-Your hair colour, highlights, lowlights should be touched up about 7 days before the wedding.
-Grooms should not be overlooked!
Grooms, you should be having your final haircuts and take care of any grey maintenance that needs to be addressed about 1 week prior to the wedding. You want to look your best, after all, it's your big day too!
