Bridal Tips

Our talented professionals at Steve Hightower Hair Salon and Day Spa in the Buckhead district of Atlanta know that your wedding, hairstyle, make up and dress should complement each other. Plan well in advance. You don't want to realize at the last minute that things clash. Make sure that the color scheme coordinates with the whole event.

Choose your hairstyle before you choose your head dress or your veil. When you have chosen a head dress or veil to match your hairstyle try it out!

Don't wear your hair pulled back too tightly. Your scalp may start to hurt and you could get a headache if you wear a tight up do for too long.

Don't go too over the top --you don't want your guest to wonder who you are!

Make sure that you and your hairdresser are happy and comfortable with the look. A trial run will show up any flaws in your plans and give you more peace of mind for the big day.

Don't think of your current style as a starting block for your wedding style. By adding hair extensions or a hair piece you can add volume and length and completely change your look. Also think about your wedding dress and try to match its style. The degree of formality of your dress should be matched by your hairstyle.

Take care of your hair! You should already be doing this anyway but if your hair is in poor condition then it can take 6 months to bring it back to healthy  condition so you can't start too soon. Visit your hairdresser and ask their advice. If you wish to color your hair then you might want to consider conditioners etc. that will return any moisture/condition lost to the coloring process.

If you color your hair then you should have it touched up 2 weeks before your wedding to make sure that any roots are concealed. This would also be a good time for a final trim.

Your style should not be too bold or modern unless you really want to make a big statement. A classic style is tried and tested and you won't have to worry about looking foolish.

Make sure that all the products that you are going to use on the day of your wedding have all been used by you before. This is not a good time to find out that you are allergic to some of your chosen products. This can be avoided if you have a trial run first as suggested earlier.

Don't wash your hair on the day of your wedding or the night before. You hair is better when it's settled down so try and wash it at least 24 hours before the time of the wedding.

The most important rule is to relax and enjoy you. This should be the best day of your life so once you have finished the preparations sit back and enjoy.
