Everything You Need To Know About Buying M+B Hair Extensions For Your Wedding
There’s a lot of pressure on your big day for everything to be perfect and one of the biggest pressures is getting your hairstyle right. Here at Milk + Blush we receive messages from lots of brides looking to boost their confidence and achieve their dream look on their wedding day. To help you lovely ladies out we thought we’d put together a few of our top tips to tick one thing off your list.
Get them in advance
The last thing you want to do is leave it to the last minute. Research your bridal style, get shade matched by our team, pick your perfect set and receive them way before your trial so that it’s totally stress free. It’s also worth chatting to our technicians about what you want to achieve so that they can advise you on whether it’s wefts or a set that you need.
You definitely need them at your trial
It’s really important that you have your extensions for your hair trial as your stylist will need to work out the placement of the clips and maybe tweak and trim the extensions to make sure they’re perfect for you. It’s also good to work out how many wefts you need and to play around with how full you want to go with your look.
Don’t change your hair colour after buying your set
You’ll really need to plan ahead with your wedding hair as any last minute changes could lead to a disaster. As much as a colour touch up before the day sounds good, if your hair turns out too dark or light then your extensions won’t match and your style won’t look the same. Try and plan ahead with colour treatments to make sure this doesn’t happen!
Hair extensions hold curls for longer
If your hair has a tendency to drop an hour after styling it or starts to look a bit limp by the end of the day then using clip-in hair extensions could be the best solution. Not only will they add extra volume but they hold a curl for much longer meaning your wedding hairstyle will stay put.
Always get the real deal
You might be tempted to go for synthetic extensions but real hair is definitely the better option for your wedding. As you’ll be having lots of pictures synthetic hair will reflect the flash and look abnormally shiny, which is super annoying! Here at M+B we use Grade A Remy Human hair which feels and photographs just like your natural locks, so no one will know the difference.
Remember that they’re not just for length
Hair extensions aren't just about adding length, you can use them to thicken up your hair too and make it look super healthy. A single quad weft could be enough if you’re looking to achieve an updo or to simply volumise your locks however if it’s length you need then you’ll have to go for a full set.
Think beyond the big day
If you’re not used to wearing hair extensions then clip-ins are a good shout as you can take them out. Bonded extensions need a lot more upkeep and can be damaging to your hair so if it’s not something you’re willing to give time to, don’t do it! Clip-ins can last anything from 3 months to a year depending on how often you wear them and how they’re looked after, so they’ll be perfect for any other special occasions in the future without causing any damage.
