Leigh’s Top Tips
Practice Makes Perfect
I make sure all my brides have a full trial and try out at least a couple of looks. What you think you want might not be what you end up with so remember to keep an open mind!
Choose Your Dress First
The cut and style of your dress can really influence what will look best hair wise. If you have a backless dress for example, it may be sensible to go with an up-do. The overall look of your dress should determine how formal or relaxed your hair is.
Find Your Inspiration
Gather a few looks from magazines and online that you love. Find styles you are drawn to then create a mood board for your ideal looks. Pintrest is great for this.
Choose Your Hair Accessories
Ideally you would have chosen your hair accessories before your trial. This is especially important if you choose to wear a veil as your hair style will need to incorporate your chosen veil.
Look After Your Hair
Don’t over treat your hair in the run up to the big day and treat yourself to some great shampoo that doesn’t contain parabens. Come to the trial with clean, natural hair that hasn’t been straightened or curled.
