How To Have Amazing Wedding Hair
One of our most recent real wedding brides, Fiona, trusted La Unica Salon to take care of her tresses for her wedding day. The
bride’s hair was sleek and glossy, with a subtle hint of a wave, and she loved
the end result. So did I, so I asked the creative director of La Unica, Shane
Couzens, to give us some tips on perfect wedding hair!

“While the main objective is of course to
create wonderful styles for the bride and her wedding party from a detailed
consultation, there are a few other tips we like to give to our brides…
- For 6 months leading up to the wedding,
have an in-salon intense treatment once a month, and regular trims to keep the
hair healthy and the ends wholesome.
- Back up your in-salon services with good
quality, professionally prescribed, home hair care (we choose De Lorenzo) as this
will help to ensure your hair is the best it can be.
- Always have at least one hair trial
(preferably two). Allow for the first to be a consultation regarding, the
neckline of the gown, hair accessories like a veil or hair ornaments, and any
ideas you may have about styling on the day, from there the stylist can begin
to create the right texture in the hair (curl, smooth, volume, etc). Take photos
of the finished results to see what works best for you.
- The second trial should be to create the
exact style for your day. Have your hairdresser take photos of the process and
the finished result so there are no crossed wires on the big day.

- On the day of the wedding, wear clothing
that can be removed without having to go over the head (for obvious reasons).
- Have the wedding party arrive with their
hair thoroughly cleansed and dry. This will make the process more time
efficient, and therefore less stressful.
- Finally and most importantly, relax, have
fun, and enjoy your day!!”
