A Bride’s Guide to Booking Wedding Day Hair

Bridal Hair Tips From Menagerie Style House

Weddings are all about prep, and we love a good checklist to help make all the planning a bit easier! Menagerie Style House offers bridal hair styling in Raleigh, North Carolina, to every bride’s beautiful wedding hair dreams come true. Here are our best hair preparation tips to help brides get ready for their big day!

Say Yes To Your Dress

Our professional wedding hairstylists want to help you look picture perfect on your perfect day. It helps when we know what your wedding dress looks like so we can decide a great hairstyle to match. Would an updo be best to feature the details on your dress? Maybe vintage curls will frame your face well for timeless, classy photos. Your hair is just one piece of the puzzle!

Begin Your Hair Research

Every bride wants to feel flawless on their wedding day. Think about what style will make you feel your best. If you hate fussing with hair around your face, search for updos that suit your style. It helps to bring a few ideas to your appointment so your hairdresser has a visual of your expectations.

When to Book Appointments


We recommend scheduling your wedding hair appointments 4-5 months in advance of your wedding date. If you’re planning a trial run, think about scheduling that 1-2 months before the day. You’ll have plenty of details to worry about as the day gets closer, and your hair shouldn’t be one of them!

Cut & Color

If you need a trim or color touch-up, we recommend scheduling an appointment around 2 weeks prior to your wedding day. Some hair color techniques take longer, and you probably don’t want to mess around with this too close to the date. Plus, it’s nice to have your hair looking great for the Bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, and other pre-wedding events!

Wedding Day Styling

Although it might depend on your hair and the style you choose, our wedding hair stylists usually recommend that you wash your hair the night before your wedding so it’s clean from any previous styling products. From there, you’ll be in good hands with the Menagerie Style House team for your day-of styling! We do recommend that brides wear a robe to get ready so they can easily get changed without messing up their hair.
