Question (Jan – Freire Wedding Photo): Rebecca, you are one of the best bridal hairstylists in South Florida. As a professional wedding photographer, I want to ask you one question that lies in my head for a couple of years.
I see very often brides with loose hair on their wedding day. I sort of do understand why, but from my own experiences, it’s undoubtedly the worst option. For me, it’s very stressful to see during the wedding day that hair covers the bride’s face for most of the time.
When I go thru wedding pictures to select the best ones, I see that I can’t see her face in 50% of all pics. What could be worst?
Tell me one thing. It’s that even the hairstylist doesn’t know about this factor or they just don’t care? I believe that all professionals have to be able to convince their clients (brides in this case) do things that actually work instead of things that are only beautiful.
I always tell everything openly to my brides, even not very popular things. But they usually get it, because they see that it’s coming from real life experience. But advising hairstyle is usually something I’m not able to provide, or I’m not asked for.
Here are two pictures of worst and amazing hairstyle according to my opinion.
Response (Rebecca – Phairis Luxury): Hi Jan! That’s a great topic to bring up! It is definitely our job as beauty artists to inform our clients of what will work with their hair and what looks best depending on their gown, facial shape, wedding location etc.
Jan: great answer Rebecca. I wish all hairstylists would be so professional as you are. Obviously, I can’t post bad pictures from my real weddings here, but I had many brides with very loose hair and I can guarantee that I wasn’t able to take a nice picture of her face in 50% of cases.
Now imagine you have loose hair just on one side of your face and it’s exactly that side facing people during your ceremony… I do believe these articles will help brides-to-be to chose better hairstyle as well as a better hairstylist. And that’s why we are here a part of Wedding Meets Fashion team!
