Three months before your wedding: Test hairstyles Start experimenting with your hair after you select your gown and a good three months before the event. If you're styling your hair yourself, check out these hairstyles and select one that will go with your gown. When doing a consultation with a stylist (if you're having your hair done at a salon), take any hair accessories you may consider wearing on the day of, your veil if you're wearing one, and "always, always bring pictures that will inspire the look you want to achieve," says Grmolyes. During your consultation, "make sure that you are comfortable with the hairstylist as well as hairstyle. You don't want something that is not you. You want something that will make you feel like yourself and will look great in pictures," she says. And just like with your makeup, it's a good idea to take pictures of your style from all angles so you can see how it photographs.
On the day of the wedding, "do all the bridesmaids first and the bride last." And because pictures are typically taken before the wedding, have your hair done two hours before photos start to give yourself (or your stylist) plenty of time to get it right.
