Everything Your Bridal Hair Stylist Wants You To Know About Hairstyles, Trials And Taking Care Of Your Hair
Being a hairstylist requires more than just being proficient in doing up a mane. They also have to great poker face, which they have to maintain when their client makes unrealistic demands of them. When they show them a Pinterest screenshot and demand that same haircut, a hairstylist has to have the patience to carefully talk them out of it. Because more often than not, we have no idea what we are talking about.
One of the biggest qualms that a stylist who works with creating original hairstyles has is that the client comes in with a vision in their head already. While it is good to have something to build on, it can get tricky when they are unwilling to make adjustments. This is especially true in bridal hairstyling because there is so much on the line with the overall look. Hair stylists work closely with their clients to carefully craft a bridal look which is satisfying to both the bride and the artist. But this is sometimes hindered by reasons not entirely in anyone’s control, which a hairstylist would love to inform the bride-to-be of but can’t. Brides should not settle for anything less than perfect on their big day and here are somethings they can do to ensure that…according to a hairstylist!
Ms. Ritu Deswal, founder of Style ‘N’ Scissors, the premier luxury salon in Jaipur, shed some light on brides need to know ahead of picking a hairstylist and working with them.
What Are Some Of The Hair Mistakes That Brides Make?
Bridal hair mistakes can cost more than a picture-perfect moment for women. How our hairstyle is going to turn out depends equally on the prep that has gone into the mane on the days leading up to the wedding. According to Ms. Deswal “There are a ton of hair mistakes that hairstylist comes across if the client times them too close to the big day. There are times when the brides come up with hairstyle suggestions that they want for the occasion but they fail to understand what will suit their face shape and hair texture. The brides also wash their hair on the day of the event which can be very difficult when it comes to hairstyling when they have thin hair. A lot of times the brides have fringes and there’s no proper root colour touch up so it becomes very difficult for hairstylists to work their magic on brides”.
