Choose the Dresses First
Before you start looking for a wedding hair stylist, first choose your dress and your bridesmaids’ dresses. If you choose semi-formal, draped, one-shoulder Alfred Angelo designer bridesmaid dresses, your bridesmaids can wear their hair down in loose waves or curls and look stunning. If you choose a more formal floor-length Watters bridesmaid dress, on the other hand, you might want to go with up-dos.
The same is true of your own hair. Choose your dress first and then choose your hairstyle and stylist. If your dress is full and formal, you may want a more elaborate hairstyle. If you’ve chosen a simple sheath, you may want looser hair that flows over your shoulders.
Make a Few Calls and Look at Portfolios
Call around to the salons and stylists in your area. Ask them if they have online portfolios or if they can email you some pictures of samples of their work. It’s not worth it to go for a consultation if you see their styling work and already know it’s not what you want.
Take Pictures With You to Your Consultation
Once you’ve narrowed your search down, schedule a consultation and trial hair styling at least 2 months before your wedding. This will give you time to find a different stylist or to make changes to the intended style with your current stylist.
When you go for your consultation, be sure to take pictures with you of your dress and your bridesmaids’ dresses. Your stylist has experience with wedding hair and can point out styles that will look best with your wedding dress and bridesmaids’ dresses.
We absolutely adore this year’s line of bridesmaids’ dresses from Bill Levkoff. From casual to formal, these dresses have a free-flowing allure to them that’s subtle and beautiful. You could see yourself wearing one of these dresses again and again, not just on your friend’s special day.
Take these two, for example. The bateau neck is alluring without being too revealing. The rutching at the waistline is flattering, too, adding just a little bit of structure to the dress. In a slate gray, it will flatter almost any skin tone, though you can also choose it in other rich colors, like fuchsia and sky blue.
For a spring wedding, especially a garden wedding, strapless bridesmaids’ dresses with a sweetheart neckline are a classic. Your bridesmaids will love the look and want to wear these dresses to their next garden party.
If your wedding is a little bit more formal, and/or you just prefer full-length gowns, Bill Levkoff has bridesmaids’ dresses for your style, too. These are sleek, long, and gorgeous. When your bridesmaids wear them, they’ll feel like they could go to any gala event and feel glamorous.
You don’t have to go too formal with your long dresses, either. If you want something that’s closer to a maxi dress, Bill Levkoff has those, too. You can find something in almost any style or color for your bridesmaids.
Remember, though this is your day, you want everyone to look great. You don’t want to look back at the pictures of your wedding and see a bunch of frumpy, unhappy bridesmaids. Your friends are beautiful, and they want to celebrate your beautiful future with you. Get them dresses that they’ll want to wear again and again.
