Most brides have quite a lot of questions about what style is best to complement their dress, skin tone and hair. Naturally, brides will have questions; after all, this hair may be the most important hairstyle a person will ever have. To help brides, we have compiled some of the more common questions below.


How long does bridal hair take?


The time it takes to do bridal hair can vary depending on the complexity of the hairstyle and the hair type and length of the bride. On average, bridal hair styling can take 1 to 2 hours for a simple style, such as a basic updo, and up to 3 to 4 hours or more for more complex styles, such as intricate braids, extensions, or elaborate updos.

It's always a good idea to schedule a hair trial appointment with your hairstylist before the wedding day to discuss and try different styles to determine the best one that fits your vision and timeline. This way, you can clearly understand how long the hair styling process will take and ensure that you have enough time to get ready on your wedding day without feeling rushed or stressed.

At a wedding, should the bride's hair match the bridesmaids?


There is no hard and fast rule that the bride's hair should match the bridesmaids' hair. Ultimately, it is up to the bride's preference and style vision for her wedding day.

However, ensuring that the bridal party's hair and overall look complement each other is generally a good idea to create a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing visual effect. This could mean choosing hairstyles that share a similar theme, colour palette, or level of formality.


If the bride wants her hair to stand out or have a unique style, she can consider having a different hairstyle from her bridesmaids. Alternatively, if the bride wants a more coordinated look, she can work with her hairstylist to create variations of a particular hairstyle that can be adapted for each bridal party member to suit their hair type, length, and personal preferences. Ultimately, the goal is to create a cohesive and beautiful look for the entire bridal party that complements the bride's overall wedding vision.
