Whether you’re going to a hair professional or styling your own, make sure your wedding hairstyle lasts all day with these top tips for keeping your look in place.

Work with what you’ve got
If you have very straight, fine hair, don’t expect to get fabulous big waves that will last all day. Similarly if have very curly hair don’t expect a slicked back do to last for hours. Work with your natural hair to achieve a look that enhances your natural beauty and it will last longer.

Start tight and controlled
If you want a natural-looking ‘undone’ wedding style to last all day you’ll need to start with something a bit more controlled and gently tease it out. If you immediately opt for a loose style it will fall down a lot more quickly.

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HAIR READY FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY

Don’t wash
Second-day-hair is known to hold a stylish wedding updo much longer than freshly washed locks. Talk to your hairdresser to find out what they recommend.

Hairspray. All day.
When you’ve finished styling your hair hold it in place with a good spritz of hairspray (we love L'Oréal Elnett Satin Hairspray Supreme Hold) Keep a travel-sized can in your bridal clutch too for afternoon top ups.

Bobby pins
Keep a few bobby pins handy too in case of any loose strands which can quickly be pinned up.

PRETTY WEDDING HAIR: PLAITS AND BRAIDS

Add accessories in the last few minutes
If you’re wearing a veil or a weighty headpiece pop it in just before you leave to avoid pulling down on your hair. This also goes for fresh flowers which can start to look a bit limp if you pop them in too early.

Avoid fiddling
Once your hair has been done avoid touching it. If you’re not happy with it let your stylist know rather than trying to fix it yourself!
