Top Tips :

Top Tip – #1. Start looking for your Wedding Hairstylist early at least one year before your wedding.

Top Tip – #2 Make sure they are legal… registered in the French system (they will have a Siret Number usually on their Home page of a website). They will have insurance by being legal.

Top Tip – #3  Check out the stylist’s work. There should be something in their styles which you love. Make sure they have plenty of wedding experience. Instagram/Facebook as well as their website. Look at those reviews.

Top Tip – #4 Stay in regular contact with your Hairstylist once you have found the one you want. Don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions. Share a locked Pinterest board for ideas and enjoy a chat on Whatsapp… it’s always nice to put a face to a name.

Top Tip – #5 Try your best to have a Bridal Trial before the wedding date. This is a great way to meet and allows your stylist to get a good feel of your hair. Take your veil and hair accessories to the trial if you can.

Top Tip – #6 Make sure you are clear and agreed upon the numbers who will be styled on the wedding day itself and the price for the day (also the trial).
