Preparing Your Hair for a Destination Wedding!

Written by Melodie Garcia, Hairdresser at Golden Ocala.

Not too long ago, a client of mine asked me for some advice on her upcoming wedding. Her wedding happened to be in another country and she was worried because she wouldn’t have time to get her wedding hairstyle trial. This would be a common concern for most brides that are planning a destination wedding. Having someone new and unfamiliar doing your hair on one of the most important days of your life could be quite stressful.  Here are a few tips to help you when preparing your hair for a destination wedding.

One Week

Take care of your color! If you need your hair color touched up to get rid of those roots and to hide any grey’s, you need to do this one week before your big day. This will give you enough time to let your hair color settle but will prevent visible root growth.

If you need a chemical relaxer such as the keratin smoothing system, get this immediately after your color service.

One Month

If you are wanting to cut or trim your hair before your big day, give yourself a month. This will allow time for you and your hair to adjust to any new length or layers.

You want to figure out your desired specialized style at least a month before your wedding day.  I recommend you have at least one trial before your big day. During your trial take pictures of the look from all angles. Be sure to include the front and back of your style along with  any desired head pieces.


Practice with your specialized style with your hair accessories.

If your wedding location is tropical, like most destination weddings are, you want to be sure to avoid the frizz. Make sure you bring the right products for your hair. Let me help you take some of that wedding stress away! Schedule your specialized style consultation and we can make your destination wedding process a smooth and enjoyable one!
