Hair Do’s and Don’ts

The big question! NO…not will you marry me?! You’ve  already been asked that!

The other big question, should you wear your hair up or down?  The answer to this question is similar to how you should you wear your makeup. In both cases you want something that is you!!! If you don’t usually wear a lot of make up then don’t wear a ton on your big day. If you love your hair down and hate it up…well then…definitely don’t wear it up. Who knows though… You may think you hate your hair up and then go for for your trial hair appointment and find that you love it. Don’t rule it out just yet,  try it and then pick a style that suits you.

Should you make your bridesmaids wear there hair a certain way!?!? It’s tough to make a decision like this, especially if your pretty picky and want things a certain way. It can also be tough if you think rules need to be set so that someone will not show up with there hair as if they just showered. Keep in mind though, just like people have different types of feet and can’t all comfortably wear the same shoe, not everyone looks good with the same hairstyle or an updo.

Want to set up a trial session for your wedding hairdo? Contact the girls at Behind the Veil or a stylist at Salon Vivace. The Waterford girls have been going to Salon Vivace for years….We love love our stylist, Lolly Mastracco…recently engaged…soon to be Mrs. 🙂
