Do I need hair extensions for my wedding hair style?
I’d estimate about 80% of my brides wear hair extensions on their wedding day….not that’s you’d ever even know it! In the past hair extensions meant long, plastic-looking straw-like hair that didn’t quite match in colour. Nowadays we use 100% human hair, silky, shiny locks that can add colour, length and thickness to really give you the wedding hair you dream of!
Do I need them?
So many brides ask me whether they need hair extensions for their wedding hair style. If you want to look like you have Michelle Keegans beautiful bouncy locks when in reality your hair is thin and sparse then the answer is yes.
However, I can guarantee you’ll be amazed at just what your own hair can do , and although we can give the illusion of fullness and thickness to a certain extent – some people do need a little extra help.
I’m worried that people will be able to tell…
A lot of brides are nervous about extensions, you’ve probably seen some really bad ones yourself and you worry that on your wedding day everyone will be looking at your hair and be able to tell. Maybe the colour won’t match? Maybe it will look like a ‘step’ in length between your natural hair and the extension pieces? When I work with extensions I offer a colour match and hair sourcing service to all my brides. This not only makes your life easier as a bride – but mine too! I know that I’m working with good quality 100% human hair that’s not going to affect the ‘look’ of the style I’m creating ( some synthetic hair extensions can look shiny and plastic ) and you know that I’ve matched your hair to the perfect colour so there will be absolutely no way for people to notice the difference!
How do I know what will work?
I can also ensure that the hair is ‘cut in’ too, styled and shaped so it simply looks like an extension of your own hair without any visible difference. I work with a variety of clip in hair and hair pieces and different people need different things. Maybe you need length? Maybe you need volume? Or maybe you’re wanting to add coloured panels without the commitment of a permanent change?! Anything is possible when it comes to your wedding hair so don’t be disheartened if you don’t have the exact hair type that you think you need to create the style that you’ve always dreamt about. You don’t need to compromise, we just need to adapt it in order for it to work for you!
There lots of inspiration over on my galleries page. Have a look through and try and guess which brides are wearing clips, hair pieces or extensions. The key is to keep it all looking natural, your hair is a part of you and your wedding hair shouldn’t look un natural or different. You want your wedding hair to be a talking point on your big day for the right reasons….!
