There are a number of things you need to know before booking a mobile hair stylist for your destination wedding. Here’s my top tips to hiring a great mobile hair stylist.
Where will I get my hair styled?
To make your life easier on your special day, mobile hairstylists will happily travel to you to style you and your bridal party.
Whether it be at your hotel, house or wedding venue, they will travel to you so that it is one less worry for you on the day.
They will also come to you for your hair trial at an organised time that suits you.
Where do you travel to?
Many mobile hair stylists knows no bounds! They can be completely flexible travelling to where ever your wedding venue may be.
Whether your wedding will be in Queensland Australia such as Brisbane, Sunshine Coast or further west in Maleny, Toowoomba or even overseas, mobile hair stylists can style your hair for you.
Simply let them know where you need to be when you enquire. Many hair stylists can travel locally, nationally and even internationally for you.
How qualified are your hair stylists team?
Make sure they are well practised in the bridal hair style industry.
Look at their hairstyling portfolio and see if you can pick any favourite styles for your wedding day.
One more thing to note, see if they are featured in any other publications such as national or international books, magazines and web publications.
When should I wash my hair for my wedding?
It is recommended to wash your hair the evening before your wedding, then blow dry it after. When blow-drying make sure to dry with your hair, not with a styling brush. This allows your hair to be clean and have the perfect texture for styling.
Will my hair style last for my whole wedding day?
Your hair should be styled and set to last the whole day. That means potentially 12 hours+.
Your hair should be set with secure pins and products that project shine and structure for your style.
If you are having a beach wedding or a wedding where it is very windy, you might want to consider hiring your hair stylist for a mid-way touch up so that your hair is beautiful all day long.
Are there any extra costs?
If you are wanting to add hair padding or any extra hair accessories to your hair, they usually come at an extra cost.
Discuss with your stylist well in advance before your wedding at your hair trial what sort of padding or accessories you may need and how much each piece costs.
On the day, what order should the bridal party be styled?
It is best to place yourself (the bride) second to last. It is recommended to not be styled first in order to have more time to relax before hand.
Also if there are any delays on the day, it means you still have time to have your hair styled properly without having to rush.
How much time does it take to style my hair?
It usually takes around 30-50 minutes for each of your bridesmaids and mother of the bride. Allow up to 60 minutes for bridal hair styling.
If you keep all of these tips and tricks in mind then your beauty routine & hiring a mobile hair stylist on your wedding day will become a breeze.
The only thing that you should be worried about is when the right time is to pop that magical bottle of champagne! If you have hired a mobile hair stylist for your wedding please comment your tips!
