3 ways to prep your wedding hair

Dust off your something old, something new, something borrowed, and something new--wedding season is here! When preparing for a wedding, what’s on your to-do list? Depending on whether you’re a guest or the bride to-be, your list might differ. Regardless, everyone wants to feel confident come the big day, which is why we’re talking wedding hair prep today. We tapped our Lead Pro Educator Christina Carlsson for her bridal preparation tips. Keep scrolling to read them.

3 tips for bridal party hair prep

  1. Get a haircut or trim 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding. We know you love your long hair, but we promise a trim will keep your hair healthy, and the grow-out will look better.
  2. Use a hydrating hair treatment in the weeks leading up to the big day. Christina recommends dream routine overnight hydration treatment. Infused with hyaluronic acid, this treatment boosts moisture for 72 hours* and results in hair that is 3x more hydrated by morning.* Your ends will thank you and your style will look much better! A definite pre-wedding MUST.
  3. Last, bring a mini touch-up kit! Touch-ups are a must. Christina’s has perk up dry shampoo, headstrong freeze-hold hairspray, and a few bobby pins. It’s small enough to fit in your purse or clutch – just grab it and go!
