BG Bride: Wedding Hair 101

When it comes to your wedding day — The Big Day — we cannot stress the importance of enlisting a professional stylist for input on the ‘do of your dreams. As much as you might be tempted go at it on your own, now is not the time to DIY that retro bun you spied on Pinterest. Nope! You need an expert and you need one now. Luckily, we have John Barrett, mastermind behind some of the world’s most fashionable women, on the speed dial…BG Bride

When in New York, visiting John Barrett’s legendary penthouse location is a must. For those of you not in the New York area, we thought it would be fun to ask Mr. Barrett to suggest wedding day hairstyles based on your everyday hair aesthetic. So grab your three-ring wedding binder, girls. . . you’ll want to print this list & keep it close:

I’m the kind of girl who rolls out of bed and barely reaches for a brush
John Barrett: Try a romantic/bohemian inspired-style. You want to keep a lot of texture in your hair…to do this, use a mineral spray like Shu Uemura Liquid Fabric Mineral Texture Spray.

I’m a blowout queen and never miss my weekly blowout session
Go for a very polished and chic look. Use a finishing product that will deliver lots of shine and prevent frizz.

I can’t be bothered…I’m always in a ponytail
Putting a sleek ponytail at mid-height gives the ponytail a more formal look. To make this look last and keep flyaway down, I love using Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer.

Nothing tops a top knot…I wear one everyday
A wedding top knot should have drama and a full bun will create that. Add extensions for volume, if needed. To achieve maximum fullness I like to use Shu Uemura Ample Angora.
