Bridal Hair Coloring And Styling Tips

Ah! Weddings! Days full of love, joy, and panic (mainly for the bride!) Bridal hair coloring and styling tips If you’re a bride-to-be, you must be familiar with the constant buzz in the back of your mind…that mantra, ‘I have to look perfect on my big day!’ Right? Well, you’re not alone. In this glammed-up world, there’s an army of brides like you, fretting over the tiniest details. (No pressure, eh? You’re just taking the most important walk of your life!)

Alright, let’s cut the cheese. There is no perfect – only ‘your perfect.’ And your most brutal battlefield (besides the Seating Arrangement Wars)? Hair color. That’s right! Choosing your dream bridal hair color can elevate you from beautiful to a goddess walking on earth on your wedding day! (No, we’re not exaggerating.)

This blog will explore the oh-so-confusing (but fabulous) world of bridal hair coloring secrets. We will decode everything from landing on your dream hairstyle picking out the perfect hair color to maintaining it so it shines bright on your big day. Sit tight; this is going to be a hair-raising ride!

Deciding on Your Dream Wedding Look

So, you’re engaged and working towards your dream wedding! Well, let’s deal with the elephant in the room, or should I say, the “mop” on the head. Your wedding hair color has to harmonize with your white gown and stand-out bridal look. Here’s how to make the decision.

Choosing between root touch-ups, all-over color, or highlights can feel like solving a Rubik’s cube. But worry not! Think of root touch-ups as that subtly sophisticated friend who’s always reliable. It works if you don’t desire a massive hair makeover before your special day. Does it feel too subtle? Well, go bonkers and opt for a full-head color. No, this doesn’t mean you’ll look like a candy floss! It’s a bold choice, but it’s heart-throbbing when done right. Going for highlights can be your middle ground, adding a playful spark to your tresses.

Now that we’ve decoded the types of hair coloring, the color problem remains. Are you planning to impersonate Elsa at your wedding? Go, icy blonde! Maroon or chocolate brown can lend a striking classic charm. But oh, you, non-conformist souls, why stick to the norm? Make heads turn with your unconventional hair color choices: Teal, lavender, or rose gold!

Remember, your hair color decision could be the difference between an average haircut or the fairytale bridal look you envisioned. Let the hair color magic begin!

Choosing the Right Stylist

So, you’ve decided on the dream look for your wedding. Now comes the actual conquest: conquest, ladies and gentlemen: finding the right stylist. Having the right horse in this race is like winning half the battle. Listen, not all hairstylists are life-savers, some are just… lifesavers without the peppermint giving you that fresh feeling. They’re not all skilled with the magic wand that turns your hair into golden threads. So, how do you distinguish a wizard from a muggle?

Now, dear reader, prepare for a dating game, but the one where you’ll have to kiss a few toads to find your prince. Some hairstylists are wizards with the scissors but rookies with the color brush and vice versa. You don’t want to play guessing games on what suits their talent best, do you? I didn’t think so. It’s like asking a violinist to play the drums; it might end well, but likely won’t.

Therefore, I propose, I beg, I plead: go through some trials. Trials without tribulations, mind you. Run these tress tests well before your wedding so that you uncover their expertise. Here’s a hot tip without needing a sauna: Look out for a stylist who “listens to your hair.” Hair whisperers, they are.

In a world where time is an illusion, you still do not have enough to play Russian roulette. So treat this as a quest. The holy color grail is your trophy; win it! But like we always say in the life of locks – on a bad day, there’s always lipstick!

Timing Your Hair Color

The ticking of the marriage clock isn’t just about your wedding dress or the groom. Oh no! It’s also about bracing yourself to embark on the hair color adventure. Well, fret not; we’ve cracked that code. A tip: Don’t try to be ‘hair today, gone tomorrow.’ Start your hair color journey six months in advance. Yeah, you heard that right, half a year. Trust me, aesthetic disasters can’t be fixed overnight, nor does your hair gain its platinum health and shiny, Instagram-worthy hair flips!

God forbid, but let’s say you colored your hair too close to D-Day, and it turned into a disaster worse than a ghost party your annoying cousin had when you both were ten. A nightmare, right? To avoid that, make your salon your second home during this time and consider your colorist your new best friend. Schedule regular bi-monthly appointments to track your hair color journey. After all, saving those Pinterest color inspirations is easy peasy, but you need time and a lot of patience to attain them.

Just picture this – you strutting down the aisle with your perfect hair color shining in all its glory, melting hearts along the way! Wouldn’t that be just magical? This magic doesn’t come without regular salon visits, so be a sport! Remember, ‘Harmony’ comes only with perfect timing.

Hair Care and Maintenance for the Perfect Color

So, you’ve chosen the man, the dress, and even the napkin fold for the big day, but what about that crowning glory? I’m not talking about the tiara (though that’s important too)—I’m talking about your hair, darling! Now that you have the perfect color thanks to the wisdom you’ve gleaned from our previous pearls of nuptial hair wisdom, let’s ensure it stays as fabulous as you deserve.

First, treated hair is like a delicate flower in the Sahara; it thirsts for nourishment! Regular hair treatments are your hair’s best friend—think of them like bridal boot camp but for your tresses. Trust me, skipping on the deep condition is like ditching leg day: a definite no-no.

And for the love of luscious locks, step away from the hot tools! Treat your hair like that piece of grandma’s china you only use for special occasions. Why? Because high heat is the villain in our fairytale, turning shining hair into a frizzy monster faster than you can say ‘I do.’ Instead, let your mane air dry as if Mother Nature is your personal hair stylist—free and organic.

Lastly, what you put in your belly counts, too! Guzzle down those omega-3s and munch on nuts like a classy squirrel. A balanced diet is like feeding your hair a gourmet meal; it helps preserve the color and shine like you’re frolicking under Instagram filters all day.

Remember, these tips are your hair-color-preserving commandments. Follow them religiously, and your mane will look so good it’ll have its legion of adoring fans on your wedding day. Plus, let’s be honest; having fabulous hair on the big day is as crucial as ensuring Aunt Edna doesn’t get near the microphone after her third glass of champagne.

Looping in Your Makeup Artist

Now, my bride-to-be, we’ve got the hair color sorted. Let’s chat about looping in another indispensable person – your makeup artist, their magic concealers, and those curious-looking brushes. You can’t just shock them on your wedding day by showing up with beautiful red hair after promising a subtle brunette look. It’s like ordering a mocha and receiving a macchiato. Catastrophe, right?

It’s crucial to cue your makeup artist about your much-anticipated hair color change. Hair color can be more deceiving than a chameleon. It sneaks around and secretly alters your overall skin tone, leading you to different wedding makeup choices. It’s akin to trying to match a royal blue dress with neon green shoes, it just won’t blend.

This is why, my dearest, we implore you to schedule a makeup trial after your hair has embraced its new hue. A trial makeup run at this stage is as refreshing as finding parking in a crowded mall – it’s a blessing! This allows your makeup artist to gawk at your new wedding hair color and arm themselves with the most compatible shades and the right tools to make you look ethereal.

This game plan ensures that on your D-day, your makeup artist doesn’t freeze like a deer caught in headlights and, instead, paints a picture-perfect bridal look for you.

The Role of Hairstyles in Enhancing Hair Color

So, you’ve snagged the right stylist, mastered the weave of the hair color landscape, and navigated through timing your ‘color-ups.’ Now, the haircut is the next crucial piece of the bride-beauty jigsaw. You might be wondering, “Why does it even matter? Isn’t the color enough to steal the show?” Well, the simple answer is no. Any fancy stylist worth their salt spray will tell you that hair color and haircut are like two peas in a pod. One without the other is like rice without curry, bagels without cream cheese, or a wedding without a cake. Just not done!

Have you ever tried getting balayage that fuses into perfectly highlighted ends and then getting a haircut, only to see those artistically done streaks on the salon floor, discarded like an old love letter? Not the best sight, let me tell you. Get your hair snipped before you dip (into color)! A good haircut provides a fresh canvas for your stylist to work magic with your chosen wedding hair color.

Now, onto the wedding day hairstyle. It’s not just a hairdo, darling; it’s the crowning glory of your entire look! Consider whether it will be swept up in a regal updo or gently cascading in waves down your shoulder. Is the side part or center? Shall we add some curls for that extra bounce? Deciding on a hairstyle is like choosing between a crisp, cold, frozen margarita or a warm, inviting, boozy hot chocolate. It’s hard, but someone’s got to do it. So, choose wisely, my dear brides-to-be, and let your hairstyle beautifully complement your meticulously chosen hair color. Remember, it’s not just about looking good but feeling fantastic on your big day!


All you soon-to-be blushing (and not because your hair went rogue) brides, let’s tie the knot on these hair-color secrets we’ve unfurled. Remember, it’s not just about choosing between being a sassy brunette or a bubbly blonde; it’s about timing your tresses to perfection. Get cozy with a colorist who knows their hues better than they know their mother’s maiden name, and please, give your locks the loving they need before the big day – your hair’s crying out for that spa day! Give your makeup maestro a heads-up about any color switcheroos, and pick that ‘do that’ll make your hair color pop like champagne. So, dazzle down the aisle with every strand in sublime sync. Cheers to your dream wedding look – may your hair color be as everlasting as your love (or at least until the next touch-up, because let’s keep expectations realistic, shall we?). 🥂✨
