Why You Shouldn’t Straighten Your Hair Before Your Wedding

Why you shouldn’t straighten your hair before your wedding

Often times, a bride will straighten her hair for the rehersal dinner. The next morning when the hairstylist curls her hair it doesn’t look the same as her trial. This is not only frustrating for the bride but also the stylist.

Here are 3 reasons you shouldn’t straighten your hair.



  • It won’t hold a curl.  This is typically what happens… The bride’s hair will look great for the first few minutes and then within a half hour the curls begin to fall. For some hair types, it will go back to being completely straight. The only way to reverse this day of is to use a prep spray or to shampoo and condition again.




  • There’s no volume.   Flat hair and no volume is another huge problem. It doesn’t seem to matter how much hairspray you use. No volume is a huge indicator of a straightener.




  • It has no grip.   The hair is very smooth and silky after using your straightener. This makes holding bobby pins in place very difficult. There is nothing for the pins to hold on to.



The exceptions to this rule are ethnic hair and very curly hair. For these hair types, I would suggest straightening on very low heat the night before your wedding. Do not touch it morning of.
