Up or down? Curly or straight? These are every woman’s common dilemma when it comes to getting their hair styled at the hair salon.
Imagine the same quandary on your wedding day, except it is ten times more stressful than that! When you are the centre of attention at your own wedding, it’s so much more important to avoid a bad hair day and look your best.

There are a few essential aspects that every bride should keep in mind when it comes to choosing THE right hairstyle. The first thing you have to do is decide if you want your hair to stay up, down or half.
