These days, our hair salon in Vancouver is buzzing with news of clients’ engagements! That’s because a ton of people get engaged over the holidays. But, now that the holidays are over and life is getting back to normal, you newly engaged Foxy Foxes probably want to get going on your wedding planning! That’s why this blog’s all about you!

How we approach wedding hairstyles at our hair salon in Vancouver

When you look at bridal magazines, you’ll find a lot of information about wedding updos. But at Stone Fox Hair, we know your wedding hairstyle is more than that! That’s why we suggest asking yourself the following basics about your wedding day strands:

  • What colour do I want?
  • What length do I want?
  • Do I need extensions to achieve the look I want?
  • What cut do I want?

It’s also important to think about:

  • What is my wedding theme?
  • What hairstyle makes me feel my best?
  • What look am I going for (ie. classic, modern, chic, sexy)?

Having a plan in advance is super helpful because knowing what you want gives you time to make the hair changes needed to get the look you’re dreaming of!

Wedding hairstyle tips from our hair salon in Vancouver


1. Make sure the look you go for makes you feel your best

Weddings are complicated. A lot of people are involved, there are many design elements, and there’s a ton of pressure. In the midst of all that, it can be easy to lose track of what you want – and what makes you feel good. At Stone Fox Hair, we believe that the top priority for any wedding hairstyle is that it makes you feel confident and beautiful. So before you lock in a choice, set everyone else’s wants and every other factor aside for a moment and ask yourself how the hair you’re going for makes you feel. If the answer is anything less than “amazing”, it’s time to look at another option!    

3. Talk to your stylist

Your stylist is your best source of information and help when it comes to your wedding hairstyle. Make sure you’re as open as possible about your timeline, theme, wants and needs. Talk about what you want and what hairstyles make you feel great. Your stylist will be able to help you balance everything, finding the perfect style for your wedding!

3. Start your hair prep early

Want to go blonde or grow your hair longer? That’ll take time. Even if you aren’t making a big change though, there’s a lot to think about! In the months before your wedding, you should be getting trims every 8-12 weeks to maintain healthy strands with no split ends. Plus, it’s important to get any treatments you need to make sure your hair is shiny and healthy! Make sure you consult with your stylist to create a plan of all the treatments you’ll need so you can properly plan the lead up to your big day.

4. Don’t be afraid to ask questions

Most people don’t come with a ton of wedding hairstyle experience and stylists know that. They don’t expect you to come in knowing everything. Have questions? Don’t worry! Your stylist wants to answer them! All you have to do is ask.
