Afro Wedding Hair Advice from Junior Green Hair Salon in Kensington
Planning and prep are crucial when it comes to creating a hair look for your wedding and this is particularly true when it comes to Afro or mixed-heritage hair.
With the big royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle fast approaching, and wedding fever soon to hit the nation, Junior Green offers advice to brides wanting to make the right impression on their big day.
Junior, who owns the award-winning Junior Green Hair Salon in Kensington, West London, says: “I would advise any bride-to-be to see her hairdresser a good six months in advance of the big day to start getting her hair in tip-top condition with a regime of regular treatments and trims.
“This is particularly important if the bride-to-be is planning to transition from a relaxed, straight hair look to one that embraces natural texture. In this case, regular trims are essential in the months running up to the big day to get rid of any frayed ends and to gradually cut away the chemically-treated hair.
“Trend wise, we are seeing brides opting for less structured looks – softer, looser, more undone styles, not the very structured updo’s of the past. In terms of techniques, we are creating distressed braids and using wefts to create soft beach waves. It really is about embracing natural texture.”
Brides should ensure they chat to their hairdresser about their wedding outfit, as they will need to take into account accessories such as veils. If the bride is wearing a veil, the stylist will need to create a style that is not going to get lost – the veil and hair need to complement each other.
Brides should take any accessories to the salon so their hairdresser can work with them when creating the bridal hair look.
