    A Step-by-Step Guide

    Your wedding day is one of the most memorable days of your life, and achieving your perfect hair colour is a key part of feeling your best. Hair colouring is not a one-hit wonder; it’s a journey that requires time, patience, and a strategic plan especially when it comes to Bridal Hair. Here’s Francesco Hair Salons comprehensive guide to help you plan your bridal hair colouring journey, ensuring you have the flawless look you’ve always dreamed of for your big day!

    1 – Start Planning 6 Months Out

    Why start so early?

    Starting your bridal hair colouring journey at least six months before your wedding gives you ample time to achieve your desired look gradually. This timeline is crucial, especially if you’re making a significant change, such as going from dark to light, or if your hair has existing damage that needs to be addressed.\

    Key Steps…

    • Consultation – Book a consultation with your stylist as soon as possible. Discuss your vision, share inspiration photos, and outline your current hair condition.

    • Colour Trials – This period allows for any trial and error. Your stylist can test different shades and techniques to find the perfect match for your skin tone and wedding theme.

    2 – Schedule Your Final Colour Appointment at Least 2 Weeks Before the Wedding

    Why the 2-week buffer?

    Having your final colouring appointment two weeks before your wedding ensures that your hair colour settles and looks natural. This period also allows you to get used to the new colour and provides a cushion for any necessary touch-ups.

    Key Steps…

    • Monitor the Colour – After the appointment, observe how the colour develops and settles into your hair.

    • Touch-ups – If any adjustments are needed, you have plenty of time to address them without the stress of a tight timeline.

    3 – Map Out Your Hair Colouring Plan

    Why plan meticulously?

    A well-mapped bridal hair plan ensures you stay on track and achieve the desired results without any last-minute surprises. It also helps you budget and manage your time effectively.

    Key Steps…

    • Appointment Schedule – Sit down with your stylist to create a detailed schedule of all your appointments, from initial consultation to the final touch-up.

    • Trust Your Stylist – Having a stylist you trust is vital. Their expertise will guide you through the process, ensuring each stage is executed perfectly.

    4 – Prioritise Hair Health Maintenance

    Why is hair health crucial?

    The quality of your hair impacts the final look of your colour. Healthy hair holds colour better and looks more vibrant and smooth.

    Key Steps…

    • Aftercare Routine – Follow your stylist’s aftercare advice rigorously. This might include using specific shampoos, conditioners, and treatments designed to maintain colour and health.

    • Regular Treatments – Incorporate regular deep conditioning treatments into your routine to keep your hair nourished and resilient.

    5 – Always Have Your Cut Before Your Colour

    Why cut first?

    Cutting your hair before colouring ensures that the colour application is precise and matches your haircut perfectly. It also removes any damaged ends, allowing the colour to distribute evenly.

    Key Steps…

    • Trim Schedule – Maintain regular trims to keep your hair in optimal condition throughout the colouring process.

    • Consultation – Discuss your haircut plans with your stylist during your initial consultation to ensure it complements your colour journey.

    6 – Coordinate with Your Makeup Artist and Hair Extension Specialist

    Why involve your MUA and extension specialist?

    A cohesive look requires collaboration between your hair, makeup, and any additional bridal hair accessories or hair extensions. Ensuring everyone is on the same page will create a harmonious final appearance.

    Key Steps…

    • Consultations – Arrange meetings with your makeup artist and hair extension specialist, if applicable, to discuss your hair colour and overall wedding look.

    • Trial Runs – Schedule trial runs to see how your hair colour works with your makeup and any extensions, adjusting as necessary.
