Wedding Hair Stylists
Choosing a hair stylist for your wedding can be stressful. You want to look as good as possible for your wedding, and that is understandable. We've created this guide to help you with the process of searching for and choosing the perfect hair stylist for your wedding day. We hope you'll find this guide useful, and we're sure that you'll have no problem finding a great stylist in Orlando!
The first step is to make a list of local hair stylists. This list can include recommendations from friends and family, or any stylists you find on line with positive reviews. While it may seem like the quickest way is to do a quick Google search for "local hair stylists," this should merely be the way you begin. It is imperative that you check on line reviews for any results that come up, rather than allowing the search results to be your list. There are several websites that feature customer submitted reviews, and this is a great way to get a feel for the stylists' ability - perhaps one gets rave reviews on their up-dos, while another seems to have perfected the beach-wave look. In this case, it's wise to have some idea of what style you want for your wedding day, so you won't miss stumbling across a stylist with the skill to match! If you find a stylist who's reviews are consistently low or if you notice many people mentioning the same problem, steer clear of that stylist or salon.
The next step is to call and see which stylists are available on your wedding date and set up meetings with them. Before you head to the meetings, have some ideas and references for the style you're looking for. If you're unsure of what exact style you want, check out bridal magazines and bridal websites to view some different hairstyles. Compare their work to how you want your hair to look on your wedding day, get some questions ready to ask the stylist and you'll be ready to head to your meeting.
Next, visit the hair stylists on your list. When you arrive to the salons look around. Take note of is the salon is clean, if tools are properly cleaned between clients, and whether or not the stylists are dressed professionally for work. If the salon and tools are dirty and the stylists look sloppy chances are their work is sloppy also. During the meeting, be sure to ask to view the stylists' portfolios so you can decide if the stylists level of skill matches the look you're going for. This will also give you the opportunity to get some more inspiration for your wedding hairstyle.
If you decide the salon/stylist are a good option, set up a trial. A trial is the time to see how your hair will be on your wedding day, and will let you see if you truly like the stylists work and remember, a trial should be free of charge or be very inexpensive. After the trials you'll be able to decide which stylist you'll hire for the wedding! Once you've settled on your stylist, you should schedule one more trial before your wedding date to ensure you and you're both on the same page. Be sure you take time to over all of the details with your hair stylist. Be sure they know the date and time you will need their services. You should also discuss if they will be able to travel to you. Many brides like the convenience of having their stylist travel to them on their wedding date.
Once you've gone through the process outlined here of searching for and visiting many of the local stylists, you'll surely have an easy time finding the perfect fit for you! We hope you'll find what you're looking for! Visit some of our favorites below, or check out our tips for finding other great local vendors for your wedding!
