These beauty experts suggest that brides start thinking about their wedding day hair and makeup after the wedding planning begins. “After you have booked your wedding venue you should start searching for your hairdresser,” Gettinger said. She added that most brides don’t think about the full process to prep for the wedding.

Top 5 PRE-WEDDING DAY PREP suggestions:
  1. Choose your stylist and make up artist early.
  2. Set up a consultation with your stylist.
    At the consultation discuss maintenance needed for your hair and skin.
  3. Budget for the entire process.
    This could entail color, cut, styling, waxing, skin care, eyelashes, and conditioning treatments.
    Also include the trial run for hair & makeup.
  4. Book a trial run for your hair and makeup.
    The trial run gives the bride a chance to look at different styles that she has selected and see which one she feels will complement the wedding best.]\
  5. Schedule hair-conditioning treatments leading up to the wedding and book your hair color the week before the wedding.
