Whether you have fine, thick, or curly hair, there are several great products out there to give your hair luster, shine, or volume to help you look your best on the big day! Makeup and Hair by Alina Karaman suggests these great products for flawless wedding day hair.
Depending on your hair type, different products are used by professional hair stylists. Makeup and Hair by Alina Karaman travels from one wedding to another, so they can not bring all of their products with them. Because of this, Alina Karaman and her team have found some great universal, multi-tasking products that they love to carry with them no matter where they go.
“The general rule is to add volume/texture to fine hair, tame the frizzies on curly/dry hair, and not to create additional volume on thick hair.” For fine hair, Alina Karaman likes to use Paul Mitchell Volumizing Spray at the root when she blowdries hair. A little of this product goes a very long way.
Then, she likes to follow up with Kenra Texture Spray if more volume is desired. Alina Karaman also likes to add the spray throughout the hair before curling for extra volume!
For curly/wavy hair, any style that is done will need a product to help control frizz. “If you use an anti-frizz oil or conditioner, go ahead!” Also, it is good to wash this hair type the night before the wedding and not the morning of. The natural oil in the scalp will help control frizz. Lately, Alina Karaman likes to use Paul Mitchell Foaming Pommade. This product is very powerful, and just a little bit is used over the style.
For thick hair, the style is typically more important than the products used. Any curling iron will add volume, so Alina Karaman likes to stay away from curling irons for thick hair. Braiding thick hair is a good solution to take volume away. Any products that add shine are great for thick hair. Makeup and Hair by Alina Karaman likes Rusk Thermal Shine Spray, and suggests adding shine before using hairspray!
These products have been tested true on many brides and have proved to work very well. “It is worth investing in products that truly work with results that are guaranteed.”Different products are targeted towards different hair types, but it always best to test products before using them for wedding day hair. This is why many stylist have hair trials before the wedding to make sure that the products work well with the bride’s hair type and desired style.
Alina Karaman definitely suggests having your wedding hair done by a professional. The wedding look does not come together by putting on a gorgeous, designer gown if the makeup and hair is not done beautifully. “I’ve seen DIY hair on the wedding day, and it was not something that I would advise. Besides, investing in so many professional products that you may need to use for one day may not make sense.”
Go ahead and contact your hair stylist to set up a consultation for gorgeous, wedding day worthy hair!
