Get some ideas
Start by collecting some pictures from magazines and off the internet. Be realistic - is your hair straight / thick / long enough for the style you like? Select several photos to show the stylist at your trial and ask her to try each of them out. Be open to new ideas and any advice she gives you.
Up or down?
Try to choose a style that will suit your face shape - round faces suit high "updo's" and sleek long styles while long faces suit styles that have width and volume. Would you be comfortable with all your hair pulled away from your face? Consider having some hair up and some down, or leaving wispy bits around you face to soften. If you have a low-cut or off-the-shoulder dress will you feel comfortable with a little flesh exposed?
Curly or straight?
Once you have decided to wear you hair up or down, the possibilities are endless. Curls are soft and romantic, as are pleats, twists, plaits and variations to the bun. Or perhaps you prefer more contemporary spikes and twists. Try to reflect your personality in your bridal hairdo, but don't be a fashion victim, or you'll laugh at your photo's in twenty years time!
Tiara's and veils
These should compliment your hairstyle but not hide it. If you have chosen a large floor-length veil, your hairstyle needs to be sturdy enough to hold it's shape until you take the veil off. Some veils look better sat at the back of the head under a mass of curls or a bun. As a rule, the hair shouldn't be worn longer than the veil.
Beads, jewels and
These are always popular as they add extra sparkle and color and can tie in with your color scheme and jewelry. Pins and hair-grips with sparkling gems in the ends have a stunning effect, whilst small flowers can be scattered amongst curls or wired to a comb to flatter a French pleat.
1. Have a trial run with your stylist as soon as your wedding date is set. If possible, take along a photo of your dress, and any headpiece or hair accessories.
2. Find out if you need to grow your hair length, improve the condition with conditioning treatments, change the colour or have some highlights.
3. NEVER shampoo hair or conditioning treatments on the wedding day.
4. On the day of the wedding make sure the bridal party wear button or zip-up clothes. No crew neck jumpers! This will ensure you dont mess up your style...
5. Now just relax.....
