ARE YOU READY
Whether you’re a bride-to-be, bridesmaid, or simply just a spectator, deciding on the proper hairstyle for a wedding is incredibly important!

With many years of experience with styling for some of San Francisco's premier wedding events, we are sure to make the day even more beautiful.
Planning for the perfect hairstyle on your wedding day
Finding a hairstylist for your wedding is a very personal thing. It’s one of the most important events of your life and one that will be forever captured by photos. Having the best hair and make-up will make the difference in liking the photos and loving them.
Here are a few guidelines for getting the best results:
❖ Collect Pictures
Browse the Internet on sites such as Pinterest and find styles you love and create an image board to bring to your appointment. Look for hairstyles that have matching hair color to yours. The same style created on different colored hair will look very different. For example, blonde hair shows texture and definition differently than dark hair.
❖ Save the date
Wedding season is a busy and exiting time.
Stylists book up, especially on weekends, so call the salon to book both the time for your hair trial and event to ensure you get the best stylists working for you on your wedding day.
❖ Come in and try the style
Bring pictures of the styles you found online, a picture of your dress and any headpiece (if any) you plan to wear to the salon for a consultation and a practice up-do/style.
Seeing the finished look before your wedding day is crucial for peace of mind. The less to worry about the day of the wedding, the better. If you don’t love the look you see, ask the stylist to try something else. This is your time and we are committed to making certain you love your hair.
❖ Take Pictures
Have the stylist take pictures of the final look. It is nice to have a visual reference for
the day of the wedding. This will be helpful to both you and the stylist on the day of the wedding to achieve the same look again.
❖ A note about bridesmaids.
Most likely, your wedding party will be receiving services as well. It is important they love their hair. If possible, it may be fun to bring them with you for your trial run, so they can discuss hair options before the date as well.
