Spill It: Bridal Hair

Image sources can be found on my Pinterest board

Planning a wedding makes you think about all sorts of little details you never thought you'd care about.  And actually still don't really care that much about, in my case.  One thing I knew I'd have to think about was my hair - would I try to grow it longer?  Stop cutting my bangs?  Change the color?  Ha, just kidding on that one, I'm never changing the color!

I casually said something to my hair stylist about having to decide whether to grow it longer, and she told me that she actually has a set formula for brides.  Starting at least a year before the wedding, she stops cutting layers in their hair, and instead only gives a tiny trim and does some face framing so that when the big day comes it's easier to put your hair in an up-do.

I was really surprised.  So, for a year before my wedding, I have to have the same sad haircut I had in middle school?  All for one good hair day?  Sounds crazy, right?

At this point I'm not sure I even want an up-do, so I may eschew her advice and keep cutting my hair normally.   I'm just curious, have you heard of this before?  Is it something you did before your wedding?  Spill it!

  1. I've actually never heard that before...not that i have any experience in being a bride, but it sounds like an interesting concept. I can't wait to see how you decide to do your hair!

  2. I know a lot of people grow it out and just don't get it cut. I can see how not having layers would help with the up-do, but you're right, having a bland, straight cut for a whole year just for one day seems like a lot. I know I could never go no-layers, or I'd have the dreaded triangle head.

  3. You will look utterly and completely gorgeous no matter what. NEVER change the color of your hair!
