When we plan our destination wedding, elopement, pre-wedding photo shoot or any event in a foreign country, we don’t have a lot of time but we do want the result to be perfect! That’s why it’s always important to find real professionals.
A professional is a person who has a lot of experience in his field, that’s why he is capable to visualize your complete look just when seeing you for the first time. He listens to you patiently, trying to get right away what your preferences are, what is the style of your event, how to by means of his skillful work make your natural beauty brighter!
To understand whether the person you choose is a professional, try to study his portfolio first. It’s not important what they write about themselves: their works must speak for themselves. If you see different faces, nationalities, hair, skins, face types, years of experience and you like what you see, get in contact with this person. If you have time, try to arrange a trial explaining in advance your preferences about make up and hairstyle.
When you choose a professional hairstylist, he can’t tell you that you have a wrong face shape for this or that hairstyle, that your hair is too frizzy, curly or thin: he must be able to work his magic with any type of hair and hair lengths. The only thing he can do is to recommend you the best hairstyle for your face shape, hair type and length according to the hairstyle you choose for your special event. He can suggest you to change a little bit the colour of your hair or add some lighter locks of hair, especially if you have dark hair and you choose e wavy / curly hairstyle or a hairstyle with braids.
He should ask about the style of your event, your dress style, colours and your personality. People who are fun-loving, hate to be bored, have a good sense of humour and want to keep things light don’t like hairstyle that look too serious: they prefer something easy, soft and natural, with braids or curls, and usually with fresh flowers as accessories.
People who don’t want to be the centre of attention are usually shy and they like to have their hair loose down to cover their shoulder, so they feel at ease. Usually they prefer soft wavy hairstyles, especially if their hair is medium or long. Those who are self-critical or perfectionists want their hair to be perfect too. They choose hairstyles that stand out - so they'll get noticed - or sleek and serious hairstyles to have their hair in order.
But don’t forget the most important thing: whatever hairstyle you choose for your special occasion, it’s important that you feel flawless and comfortable with yourself!
