Bridal Hairstylist Tips: How to Overcome Your Hairstyling Fears
Putting yourself out there and choosing to take on the world in your dream career as a Bridal Hairstylist is no mean feat – it takes courage to try something new for the beginners and strength and perseverance to take the opportunity to better yourself and expand your skill-set as a trained stylist.
Confidence is key when it comes to making it as a successful Bridal Hairstylist, but it’s not unusual for us to meet students who have real fears about embarking on a new career or giving it their all in their chosen profession as a Bridal Hairstylist.
“Thanks for all the help! I’ve been hairdressing for 25 years plus but I’ve always been terrified of Bridal Hair.
I started your online bridal hair course and just a few weeks in I’ve managed to do the hair for my daughters wedding! I’d never have been brave enough without this course. Thanks Again.” – Michelle Jones, CBH Online Student
All of our Bridal Hair Courses are tailored to suit everyone’s individual needs and by taking you through everything step-by-step, you can rest assured than upon completion of your chosen course you’ll be feeling ready to take on any style in any situation!
Even though all of our students come to us at different levels, we often hear the same fears over and over again, from taking on styling hair with a fringe to being equipped with the right products in your kit to meet your client’s needs and fix common problems.
The number one this to remember is: DONT PANIC!! Stay calm and refer to the ‘Quick Tips’ section of Create Beautiful Hair Online to get the answers you need, as you need them.
Fringes & Bangs
Don’t get caught up on what the models fringe looks on Instagram – just get it right for your client and take your time finding out what her hair wants to do.
Don’t fight the direction of the hair, work with it and allow the hair to ‘show you’ where it naturally wants to sit.
Hair Extensions & Instagram
Don’t feel intimidated by the impressive styles you see on Instagram!
90% of the styles you see on Instagram and Pinterest have been created using hair extensions and you can create them too with just a little bit of practice.
Tricks of the trade
It’s easy to create extra volume and oomph, so don’t worry if your client has thin or fine hair.
- Use Donuts for extra volume when creating soft messy buns for short hair. When positioned correctly you won’t be able to see the padding at all.
- American Dream and Hair Rehab supply excellent quality hair extensions and we always use them on our Bridal Hair Courses. Join one of our Bridal Hair Courses and get great discounts on any American Dream product!
- Use a texturising powder such as Osis Dust it or Powder Play by Big Sexy Hair to get lots of volume and body in even the finest of hair
