Are you feeling that itch to switch up your look before your big day? Of course, you want to look your best as you walk down the aisle. Maybe your best bridal look features a brand new hair color.

For something as important as your wedding day hair, you want to find the right stylist. That’s especially true when it comes to dyeing your hair a new color.

If a new color is part of your bridal hair consultation, there are a few things you should know. Here’s a guide to help you choose the best color specialist for your wedding.

Start Early

But to change your hair color for your wedding, you should start the process at least six months in advance. This will give you the time to find the right salon and stylist.

Of course, you can schedule the appointment closer to your wedding date.

Do Some Initial Research

Start by doing some initial research on salons and hair color specialists. Many people choose local businesses. But if you’ve fallen in love with a hair color specialist’s work, don’t be afraid to travel to them.

You’re going to want to see examples of their work. Check to see if those examples match the kind of style you’re looking for.

You’ll also want to do research on the salon’s or stylist’s prices for the style you’re looking to have. Prices can vary with salons, stylist experience, and city. So be sure your beauty budget and desired style match in price.

Consult Friends, Family, and Reviews

Don’t be afraid to ask family and friends about any stylists or salons they recommend. If they had a good experience, there’s a good chance you will too!

Similarly, check reviews online when narrowing down which salon or stylist to go to. See what other clients and customers have to say about their experience at the salon or with the hairstylist.

Come Prepared with Questions and Inspiration

Once you’ve booked your hair color consultation, be sure to come prepared with questions to ask the hairstylist and inspiration photos of what you’d like your hair to look like.

You can ask questions about the maintenance required to keep up the look or how many sessions it’ll take to achieve your desired color. Your stylist will also have questions for you to ensure they can provide the look you want.
