Finding the perfect hairstyle for your big day can be a challenge. If you’ve been experimenting with different styles and haven’t found the perfect one, hair extensions might the perfect solution, but you should keep in mind a few things before making the leap.
Do a Trial Run
It’s important to test the hair extensions at least a few weeks before your wedding to make sure that they feel comfortable, look natural and give you the look that you really want. There would be nothing worse than not testing them out only to find that you hate how they look or make you feel uncomfortable. It also gives you time to work with your hairdresser to find the perfect style. You can use clip-in hair extensions if you want the look just for the big day but don’t want to commit to a longer time with the extensions.
Choose Hair Extensions That Are Close To Your Natural Shade
Stylists generally recommend getting extensions that are one shade darker or lighter than your natural hair color. This adds some dimension and makes it look more natural, especially if you dye your hair.
Find the Right Length
If you want to do an up-do, but struggle to get the right volume or your hair simply isn’t long enough, you can get micro extensions to make your hair look fuller in the up-do. If, however, you want to keep some of the length, getting full extensions is probably the better call. These can be styled more easily to add volume and length and give you that long hair you crave.
Wash the Extensions the Morning Of
It is generally recommended to wash your hair with extensions on the morning of the wedding instead of the night before. This approach will make it easier to get some body into the extensions. If you wash them the night before, it can be more challenging to get the right amount of volume.
Hair Extensions Respond to Heat
Most hair extensions respond better to regular use of heat (unlike your normal hair!), so it’s generally a good idea to use a blow dryer and style the extensions on a daily basis to keep them looking full and beautiful!
