6 Tips to Booking a Bridal Hairstylist

When it comes to milestones in life, getting married is up there as one of the most important. They don’t come much bigger than marrying the love of your life and with all eyes on you, it’s important that you look your best. This is the reason why you should look to use a bridal hair stylist as this will ensure you look your absolute best on your big day. 

They Have Experience


This is absolutely crucial because you need to know that your hairstylist has the passion and experience to create a hairstyle that you want. You should ask them how many weddings they have worked on and even ask for some proof of their work in the form of pictures. You need to make sure that they understand what is expected of them and this comes through experience.

Do They Have a Portfolio?


A portfolio will really show you what they are all about and what they can offer. You shouldn’t look for consistency in the styles here but you should look at the way in which the bridal hairstyles have been personalised to the bride. This will be based on her personality or her dress but either way, it will prove that they are highly likely to be able to create the wedding hair that you dream of.

Will They Offer a Trial?


The aim of a trial is for you to find out what your chosen stylist is all about but it is also their opportunity to learn about what you want from your wedding hair. It’s important that you both communicate clearly and that your wedding hairstylist understands what you are looking for. It might also be the chance for them to show you their suggestions.

They’re Open to Your Suggestions


When you are choosing a hairstylist for Kent wedding hair, it pays for them to understand that you have a look that you might want. Therefore, they should be open and willing to try out your suggestions. Sure, they might not work but it’s the fact that they are willing to help you achieve the look that you truly want.

They Care and are Passionate


It helps to choose a hairstylist that absolutely loves what they do. When this is the case, you can be sure that you will have someone who is with you every step of the way. The passion will translate into the styles they create and the way in which they do everything possible to give you what you are looking for.

As a hairstylist, I care for my clients and I have a passion for my work, this is why I launched a competition for Key Workers to win their wedding. What started off as an idea to offer my services for free as part of the competition, I quickly attracted interest from other wedding suppliers, eventually creating a wedding giveaway that was worth £30,000. I care about my clients and wanted to give back to those that had given so much during the pandemic.

They’re Award Finalists


If your hairstylist has been nominated for awards then this is a clear sign that their work is highly regarded. This is why I believe that being a finalist in the Kent Wedding Awards and Wedding Business Awards is proof that I offer a service that stands out.

However, picking a hairstylist is a big decision and one that you have to get right. So, it pays to follow the tips above to ensure you get that decision right.
