Getting gorgeous hair for your big day is easier than you think. Since we're in the business of beautiful hair for the every day, we thought we'd highlight six key steps to getting dreamy do's for the most glamorous day of your life. 

1. Add Extensions

Regardless if your adding extensions for a pop of color or extra volume, hair extensions can elevate any 'do. We recommend extensions for up-styles and half-up, half-down styles to give strands that extra staying power, texture, lift and fullness for a completely glammed-out 360-degree vibe. "The bigger, the better" so max-out volume in the form of clip-ins, tape-ins and more permanent solutions. Beauty Bonus: Hair extensions for the big day also become a fun, fuss-free option for the wedding night and honeymoon!

2. Tease The Crown

Volume at the crown is crucial in taking your style from ordinary to extraordinary. Use teasing, texturizing or dry shampoo spray by brands like Not Your Mother's. Apply spray of choice at the crown then lightly back-comb and pin height in place by securing pins vertically. 

3. Go Bold

Go for the unexpected with a bold braid. Create waves and smooth out curls with a soft boar bristle brush. Top off your style with a peek-a-bo braid to dress up strands in an unexpected way. 

4. Work With Second Day Hair

Hair that isn't freshly washed holds a style better and allows stubborn hair to hold a more lasting curl. Slightly dirtier hair also looks more lived-in and surprisingly *fresh* and modern in photos. 

5. Don't Be Trendy

Sometimes simple voluminous waves with an exaggerated part is all you need to look fabulous...and timeless. For example, th style above looks almost dateless with it's node to Old Hollywood. Don't be too contrived or trendy...simple is always the more glamorous route!

6. Stay Touchable

Soft, polished-yet-messy hair is ALWAYS in. Avoid anything too stiff while instead opting for hair that's more girl next door, than girl from three seasons ago. Going soft and touchable in the hair department is an instant way to getting beautiful photos that transcend time.
