    Bride on a Budget: How to Save Money on Wedding Hair and More!

    “Wedding Hair
    on a Budget”
    Many of my clients are feeling the squeeze of a bad economy while trying to plan their upcoming weddings. A wedding is a big expense in any economy, let alone this one! Here are some tips I usually give to my wedding hair clients on where they can save money on their hair style and more.

    Wedding Hair on a Budget Tip #1:

    An at-home deep conditioning treatment  is a great way to get your hair in it’s best shape and save a few bucks too! You won’t hurt my feelings (or your hairdressers feelings for that matter) if you don’t come into the salon for pre-wedding hair treatments. Ask your hairdresser to suggest a great professional brand deep conditioning product that you can use weekly up until the wedding to get your hair in tip-top shape. I always suggest using Redken’s Extreme Deep FuelWedding Hair, which strengthens and fortifies hair.

    Wedding Hair on a Budget Tip #2

    A glaze is a good alternative to costly wedding hair coloring services. If you are looking to cut corners cost wise, like many of my clients are these days, you can always opt for a low-maintenance haircolor. For example, I charge about half of my regular haircolor cost for a glazing service. A glazing service is perfect to brighten up your current haircolor. It gives it shine and depth, as well as a color boost without regular re-growth.

    Ask your hairdresser if they provide a glazing service and you can get this done every other time you come in. To save even more money on your wedding haircolor, I would suggest trying the John Frieda Collection Luminous Color Glaze. This is an at-home glazing service that you can do in the shower. I’ve actually tried it myself and was happy with the shine it put in my hair. Best of all, you can find this at your local drugstore for under $20!

    Wedding Hair on a Budget Tip #3

    Bridesmaids can style their own hair to save you money on wedding hair services.
    Don’t worry about paying for all of your bridesmaids to have their hair styled the day of the wedding. Read my previous articles in my ‘Wedding Hair Series’ to get ideas on DIY hair ‘dos for your bridesmaids. One of my favorites is the side ponytail because it is so simple to do and looks so chic too!

    These are just some ideas I regularly dish out to my budget-conscious clients who are looking to save cash on their wedding hair style. Get creative so that you can cut corners everywhere and not just on your hair care services. When I was planning my own wedding, I cut corners by printing my own place cards and programs and getting flowers that were in season instead of ones that would have to be flown in. If you are resourceful and creative, you can do a lot of things yourself, saving you and your groom a ton of money.
