Whether you’ve got a wedding, graduation, or even just a vacation coming up, it’s a great time to get your hair done. At Salon Povera, we know exactly what to do to help make your special day or event even more fantastic. However, there are some common mistakes to avoid when working with a stylist for hair for special occasions.
- Mistake #1: Scheduling a cut or color at the last minute. If you’re going to cut or dye your hair for a special event, do so at least a week or two beforehand instead of immediately before. That way, if it doesn’t turn out exactly how you imagined, you have some time to do damage control and tweak it to get it right.
- Mistake #2: Not being honest with your stylist. Some people fear their opinions about hair for special occasions will offend the stylist, but we want you to do you! Don’t be afraid to tell us what you like (or don’t like) so we can get it exactly right. We promise you we won’t take offense!
- Mistake #3: Not accounting for the weather. The weather can be somewhat unpredictable, but keep the season and likely weather in mind when choosing your hairstyle for a special occasion. For example, if it’s the middle of a hot and humid summer and you have long, thick hair that is prone to frizz, you may prefer an updo to get the weight and heat of your hair off your neck and shoulders and avoid looking like a frizzy disaster by the end of the day.
While this isn’t a complete list, it’s a good place to start as you begin to formulate your plans around hair for special occasions. And as always, your hair stylist at Salon Povera is ready to help you make incredible memories on your special day.
