Your wedding hairdo can make or break a stunning bridal look, and it is important to have the right advice when choosing a bridal hairstyle. Our Morgan & Morgan stylists specialize in helping you get it right and take the stress out of the process

Have an idea about the dress….
Find a dress that compliments you and makes you feel like a million bucks, and our team will create a style to compliment the dress.

Work with what you got
If you have very fine hair, or very short hair, deal with the fact that there are limitations with the texture of your hair. If you have loads of curls, don’t try and convince yourself that a sleek, skinny hairstyle is what is going to work for you. Think about the weather…if it is humid, or windy a messy loose style might not be your best option and if its really hot wearing your hair up off your neck is a great idea!

Start early
We have a team who specialize in bridal hairstyles and will be able to discuss all the options with you, taking your dress into account, your hair texture, whether you are wearing a veil or not, and if you plan to wear flowers in your hair.

Be yourself
If you don’t feel comfortable having a huge up do, you won’t feel right on the day. Make your wedding hairstyle all about you, just the more glamorous you. Don’t change who you are, you will feel weird and it will show.

Plan ahead..
Time your colour appointments so you have your pre-wedding colour as close to the day as possible. You should start to discuss your ideal shade for the big day at least 3-4 months in advance

Get a practice in
Just because your stylist is a wedding specialist, doesn’t mean they will instantly know what you like. Book a trial appointment, and get an idea of what kind of hair do you are in for on your wedding day.

Don’t lose your shine
As most brides will grow their hair prior to the wedding so it is vital for the big day that the condition is maintained. If you are sacrificing haircuts swap them out for intense repair treatments in the months leading up to wedding day

To veil or not
It’s a very personal issue, and these days have more of a nostalgic connotation and less of a religious one. If you really don’t want to wear a veil, fascinators have come back into fashion with a bang and you can find a super modern version of the classic veil and dress it up for your wedding day.

Short works too
Many brides these days are doing away with tradition and keeping their hair short for the occasion and it can make for a really dramatic entrance. Have your haircut a couple of weeks before the wedding, as it will have a chance to soften at the edges after two weeks of growth.
