Haircut and Shave for Wedding Day?
Hi TGS! My wedding is coming up and I am trying to figure out how much in advance of the wedding I should get my hair cut and shave? I am not typically clean shaven but would like to be for the wedding day. And, I am a redhead with pretty fine, straight hair.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding and thanks for your question! If it’s not your style to perform your hair, and shaving services at home, then you should definitely hire a professional. Even if you typically do these services for yourself and just want a different look or professional touch. Make a consultation with a barber a few weeks or a month in advance of the wedding to discuss and even consider testing out different shave types and possible hairstyles. By hiring a professional you won’t have to worry about any self-shave mishaps and you’ll be able to pay close attention to how your skin reacts and how fast your hair grows after so you can time your services right before your wedding day. It is not recommended that you do any of this the day of the wedding because any mishaps (skin irritations or bad haircuts) could make for disappointing wedding day images and just make you feel uncomfortable and insecure on the wedding day. This is one of the most memorable days of your life so you definitely want to look and feel your best!
