Heated rollers will make bridal hairstyling easy, especially when you’re just starting out. ! If you’re not quite sure how to put them in, don’t worry! We have a full length roller setting tutorial showing you just that.

Bridal Hair Stylist Essentials
Straighteners / Straightening Irons
Create beautiful, loose curls quickly and easily with straighteners. Ideal for finishing a half up half down bridal hair-do or a quick fix for last minute hairstyle for the flower girls!
Pam loves using GHD’s & Babyliss. These are both good quality and leave hair with a lovely, smooth finish without snagging.

Smooth & Sleek Bridal Hair
Boar bristle & Nylon hair brush
eg: Mason Pearson, Sonia Kashuk, Denman or similar…
Selection of round brushes for blow drying
Keep your bridal hairstyles and blowdrys looking smooth and sleek with a good selection of hair brushes. Boar bristle & nylon mix brushes assist with an easy glide through the hair, to help de-tangle without any pulling.
You will also need to use your brushes when creating beautiful vintage waves. Once the hair is curled, you can brush slowly from root to tip, guiding with your hand underneath the hair for a perfect finish.
Tail comb & Back combing comb
Create the perfect height in your styles, with great backcombing technique…
Back-combing is a huge part of many bridal hair styles, and being able to do this correctly will not only result in your finished hair style looking fabulous, but it will also enable you to secure your pins and grips correctly to ensure your wedding hairstyles stay put all day and night!

Wedding Hair Styling Products
Prep, Prime & Setting Lotions – Schwarzkopf Silhouette style & care lotion and Schwarzkopf Silhouette setting lotion.
Curl cream – We love L’Oreal Liss Control and Boots Essentials Curl Cream – great for smoothing out slightly more stubborn curls!
Texturising Powder – Great for adding texture, volume and body to the hair. Dust It by Schwarzkopf is the best one we’ve found. Please note! It doesn’t work well on dark hair as it can make it look a bit ashy or grey. Get Label.M Brunette Resurrection Style Dust for use on dark hair.
Hair spray – You’ll need a hair spray that brushes out easily – it should be flexible on the hair so you can try different looks easily. We recommend Elnett Professional Hair Spray – regular hold – available at most beauty wholesalers. Also try Osis Session 3 – a great dry hair spray that is super strong but not heavy. It is good as a finishing spray.
Avoid regular Elnett available at most chemists and supermarkets as it can be quite wet and has a tendency to make the hair crispy.
Mousse – a medium or firm hold mouse.

Fishing tackle box for grip storage
This may seem like an odd one, but staying well organised will make your life as a pro bridal hairstylist so much easier!
