When should I book in my final cut / trim / colour?

When should I book in my final cut / trim / colour?

It's very important that with hairstyling we plan face framing lengths and also ensuring we have enough hair to create the desired look if not requiring extensions or support padding.

On average, hair grows 1 cm per month so keep this in mind. If your hair is going up or half up you will need to consider the root colour vs your ends colour...

It can become obvious that your hair is two toned when you decide on a half-up hairstyles or when you choose an up do. So with this in mind you may want to consider a colour service or full-head highlighting service to blend your colour. The most noticeable is when the hair is Ombre.

Come to your Bridal Preview before you have a cut, colour or trim and I will be able to advise you exactly when you need layering, trimming or thinning in some cases.

Book your cut, colour or trim in around 7 days before the wedding. I always suggest taking the photos from your bridal preview along to your stylist so they can also visualise your requirements.
