Mistake #1: Lack of Communication and Consultation

Not investing enough time in communication and consultation almost always results in a dissatisfied bride. Understanding the bride’s vision, preferences and (of course) what their hair can handle is crucial for achieving the desired look.

Mistake #2: Mistiming Trial Runs

Trials are the perfect time to put the consultation into practice—but don’t jump the gun. Scheduling a trial run too soon can give the bride time to change her hair (or even her mind) but waiting until the last minute can result in a last-minute scramble, causing unnecessary wedding day blues.

Mistake #4: Inadequate Time Management

A wedding day is chaotic enough and not managing your time while styling can start the day off on a stressful start. A common mistake is underestimating the amount of time you will have—especially if you’re creating multiple looks.
