Your Focus: Getting Your Strands in Shape

At this point, schedule a second meeting to go over your make-up plans and have a trial run so you can make sure you are completely satisfied with the look—and how it works (or doesn't work!) with your gown. Bring in your veil or headpiece if you are wearing one to see how it looks. It is also important to know how to remove the veil without messing up your hair, so have the stylist teach you and a friend how to, if they are going to be unavailable to do it themselves.
After all the pulling, coloring and straightening (or curling) of your mane, it's time to give your tresses some serious TLC. You'll want them to be shiny, healthy and sans split ends. Your best bet?  Make an appointment with your hair stylist for a scalp massage and deep hair conditioning. Don't have the time? DIY with an at-home deep conditioner, like Aussie Deeeeep 3 Minute Miracle, which has both Australian oil and jojoba to smooth and moisturize parched locks. Another great option is to try an overnight treatment, such as L'Oreal EverStrong Overnight Repair Treatment, which will penetrate the hair fibers after just one use, strengthing your mane and keeping frizz at bay. To keep hair silky and to avoid any split-ends or breakage, you can rub a silicone-based serum (we love MoroccanOil right now) into strands after each shower, and style as usual.
