5 Tips for Preparing Your Hair for Wedding Day Perfection

When it comes to your wedding day, you have one moment with all eyes on you. Understandably, you’ll want to look a million dollars as you waltz down the aisle. From choosing the perfect wedding dress to getting the right makeup, you need to think about your hair in the lead-up to the big day.

In the months leading up to tying the knot, paying close attention to your hair health is vital. Here are five tips on how to prepare your hair for wedding day perfection.

5 Tips for Preparing Your Hair for your Wedding Day

Take Your Vitamins

Of course, you will want to have healthy, shiny locks on your wedding day. To keep your locks looking and feeling radiant, there are vitamins you can take to make your hair healthier. Biotin, for instance, is a good form of vitamin B. You’ll find that it’s a common ingredient included in a ton of hair growth products too. Getting into the routine of taking your vitamins before your wedding will pay off in how your hair looks.

Get a Trim

If your goal is to grow your hair as much as possible before the big day arrives, you shouldn’t skip getting your locks trimmed in the process. It’s advised to go every four to six weeks for a quick trim. Hairdressers like those found at can take an inch off the bottom and keep any split ends at bay. When you get your hair trimmed regularly, this can promote faster growth too. What’s more, you can use your visits as an opportunity to natter about all things wedding!

Avoid Using Heat

Before you slip into your dress and walk down the aisle, use the months beforehand to be kind to your hair. This includes not using heat on your locks. When you’re able to let your head air dry naturally, do so. Instead of relying on straighteners and curling rods, too much heat can cause your hair to break and become dry. You’ll want a healthy glow when tying the knot, so avoiding heat is key for maintaining your hair’s health.

Try Out Different Products

Once your big day arrives, you shouldn’t use this occasion as the time to try out new products on your hair. The last thing you want is to use products that do more harm than good to your locks. Instead, try out a range of products well in advance. This will help you plan what hairstyle you want for your special day.

Have a Backup Plan

No matter how much planning and preparation you do regarding wedding hair, disaster can strike in an instant. This means you need to have a backup plan in place. Whether it’s having extra hair accessories on hand, or some additional products, this will put your mind at ease and ensure your big day runs according to plan.

After your big day comes and goes, you’ll want to look back on your wedding photos with fondness, rather than dread. Your hair plays a big part in your overall look when tying the knot, so make sure you follow the guide above to help keep your locks in check before getting wed.
