HAIR EXTENSIONS

WHAT HAIR EXTENSIONS DO YOU RECOMMEND?


For clip in hair extensions to be used on the wedding day, Jodie recommends Zala, Luxy Hair and Showpony. You can purchase these in sets online for a reasonable price. You can select the amount of hair that would work best with your hair type of fine medium and thick, but generally opting for around 220g is best for thickness. If there is too much for your hair you can always leave some wefts out when styling. The offer colour mtaching services as well. If the hair is too long of slightly incorrect in colour you can get your hairdresser to cut to shape and colour tone.





WEDDING SCHEDULE

HOW LONG DOES EACH SERVICE REQUIRE ON THE WEDDING DAY?


Jodie allows 1 hour per service on the wedding day. For hairstyles that require additional prepartion (e.g very curly hair) or hair extensions added to a hairstyle an additional 15 - 30mins will be applied for the person.




WHAT TIME DO YOU USUALLY FINISH THE SERVICES ON THE WEDDING DAY?


Jodie advises her brides that it is best to finish the services 1.5 hours before the ceremony time. This allows time for final touch ups, time for the bridal party to get dressed without feeling rushed, time for pre-ceremony photos with the photographer and time allocated to leave for the ceremony if at another location.




HOW SHOULD MY BRIDAL PARTY PREPARE OUR HAIR FOR THE WEDDING DAY?


1. Highly recommended for all services for hair to be washed (x 2 shampoo’s + conditioner on ends) the night before the wedding. 2. If anyone’s hair gets oily during their sleep overnight, they can wash their hair on the morning. They will be required to dry off their hair before being in the chair for styling. 3. For mothers of the bride/groom that hair short hair that require a blow-dry they can wash their hair the morning of the wedding. 4. For any person that has super curly hair that is after a smoother finish on the day, I recommend getting a blow-dry the day before that stretches the hair out. This creates more memory hold for the hairstyle to last on the day, especially if its humid weather. 5. If hair extensions are to be added on the day, please ensure these are shampooed, conditioned, dried – not wet and brushed thoroughly ready for the service. 6. It is best to wear either a robe/gown or button up top for the services to allow easy change into attire for the event without disturbing the hair and makeup
