Hey there, soon-to-be brides and grooms! As you gear up for the wedding of your dreams, there's one detail you definitely don't want to overlook – your hair!

Finding the right wedding hair stylist is crucial for nailing that picture-perfect look as you walk down the aisle. So, grab a cup of tea (or maybe something stronger!) and let's dive into the seven essential questions to ask when hiring the wizard behind your wedding hair magic.

1. What's Your Style?

Every hairstylist has a unique style, just like every couple has a unique love story. Before committing to a stylist, make sure their aesthetic aligns with your vision. Are they into boho chic, classic elegance, or trendy modern looks? Look through their portfolio and discuss your preferences to ensure they can bring your dream hairstyle to life.

2. What's Your Availability?

Wedding dates can be tricky, with everyone competing for the same weekends. Check if your potential stylist is available on your chosen date and if they can accommodate your wedding timeline. You don't want to rush through your hair appointment and end up stressed before the ceremony.

3. Do You Do Trials?

Trials are like the dress rehearsal for your hair. It's a chance for you and your stylist to experiment with different styles and find the one that makes you feel like a million bucks. Ask if they offer trial sessions, and if so, how much it costs. This is the time to provide feedback and make any necessary adjustments.

4. What Products Do You Use?

Your hair is your crowning glory, and you want the best products enhancing its natural beauty. Inquire about the products your stylist uses – from shampoos and conditioners to styling products. If you have a particular brand or product you love, make sure they're open to incorporating it into your bridal look.

5. How Do You Handle Emergencies?

We all know that life is unpredictable, and weddings are no exception. What if your hairstylist falls ill or faces an unforeseen emergency? Ensure there's a backup plan in place.

Whether it's a colleague stepping in or a team arrangement, having a contingency plan will help you rest easy knowing your hair is in good hands. (This is one of the many "Before I Do" benefits - our agency is always prepared with back-up artists in the event of illness or emergency.)

6. What's the Cost Breakdown?

Budgeting for a wedding involves juggling a multitude of expenses, and your hairstylist is no exception. Clarify the cost of their services, including any travel fees or additional charges for trials. Knowing the financial commitment upfront will prevent any surprises and help you plan accordingly.

7. Can You Work with my Hair Type?

Hair comes in all textures, lengths, and colors. Make sure your stylist has experience working with your specific hair type. Whether you have sleek straight locks, luscious curls, or something in between, a skilled stylist will know how to enhance your natural beauty and create a style that lasts throughout the festivities.

Remember, your wedding day is all about you, and feeling your best includes having hair that reflects your personality and style. By asking these seven questions, you'll be well on your way to finding the perfect wedding hair stylist to make your dream look a reality. Happy hairstyling!
