If you are getting married in the coming months, or even a year from now, you may already have an idea of how you want to look on the big day. Some women have even had a look in mind since they were little girls, and making that vision a reality can often mean doing a few things in advance. It is far from uncommon for engaged women to start dieting and exercising because they want to be slimmer for their wedding day, but there are other things you might want to start doing early too – like growing your hair.
However, if you don’t want long hair and are just thinking about it for the wedding, it may not be the best idea. Avoiding a haircut to try and have it longer for your wedding may mean it looks worse on the day if your ends are split and in bad condition.
Look at Bridal Styles for Your Current Length
Before you decide whether to commit to growing your hair for your wedding, it can be a good idea to look for some inspiration for the kind of styles you could have as a bride if your hair was the length it is now. You would be truly surprised to find the hair gurus who happily impart valuable information on all things bridal hair for the unsure bride stuck between lengths and styles.
If you are generally happy with your hair at its current length for everyday wear and you find the perfect bridal style to suit, then you can focus on keeping it in great condition or finding the perfect colour rather than growing out your style.
If you have mid length hair but want it even longer for the wedding, then clip in extensions could be a way to get the style you want for the day without having to grow your hair for months. Most hairdressers are now comfortable with working with clip in extensions or weaves and so you should have no problem finding a bridal hairdresser who will be able to use them to create the look you’ve chosen. You can buy natural hair extensions fairly inexpensively, which come in a range of colours and also, being real hair, can be dyed and styled to match your real hair.
If You Do Grow It
If you do decide you want your hair to be long by your wedding, then make sure you are doing everything you can to keep it smooth and to remove any split ends. Use keratin treatments and hot oil regularly and avoid bleaching or perming if you can to keep your hair healthy.
