What to Look for in a Wedding Hairdresser

The wedding day is the most important event in someone’s life. This is the day that a bride will remember forever, so she must put on her best gown, makeup, and most importantly, her hairdo must be great. Hairdressing training courses teach you everything about hairdressing including hairdressing for weddings. So, the services of a trained hairdresser must be sought for wedding hairdressing.    

Making the choice between a regular hairdresser and a wedding hairdresser

The first question you will need to address is whether to choose a regular or a wedding hairdresser. The choice is yours and it depends on several factors and considerations. Just because it’s your wedding, doesn’t mean a regular hair dresser cannot do the job as perfectly as a wedding hair dresser.

The advantage of a regular hairdresser is that she is already familiar with your hair. And as such, she can give your hair the desired look before the wedding. The disadvantage of the regular hairdresser is that she may not be a specialist wedding hairdresser. A wedding hairdresser, being a specialist and a graduate of one of the many hairdressing training courses may have the knowledge of the latest hairdressing trend.

Factors to consider while choosing a wedding hairdresser

There are several things to consider when looking for a wedding hairdresser. She must be a good listener. When you have a consultation with the hairstylist, notice if she is focused to your concerns and whether or not she is taking notes or listening while discussing with you. The wedding hairstylist should be able to pay attention to your concerns and the detailed inputs you have to offer. The best hairdressing training courses teach every aspect of the business of hairdressing, including the interaction with clients. In addition, some of the trained wedding hairdressers will have an in-depth understanding of latest hair dressing trends.  

The best hair dressers have philosophies on hair, hairstyles, to match themes, texture, face shape, dress, and just about anything else. While you may listen to them, you don’t have to agree with everything they say, if you have your own hairstyling ideas. You can listen to them and learn from them too, but giving your own inputs can inspire your hairdresser create the best style to suit and satisfy you.  

A professional hairstylist with expertise gained from hairdressing training courses should be able to present you with a solid portfolio of past experiences with diverse clients. It will help you to speak to people who have availed of the services of the hairdresser you are going to hire.
