When it comes to planning for any big event like a ball, prom night and of course your wedding day the hair style you choose will be as important as the dress. Therefore to ensure your bridal hair or special occasion hair is perfectly styled, will complement the rest of the dress, is appropriate for any hair ornaments and all hair coloring and other hair treatments are completed in time you will need plenty of pre-planning, and we haven't even mentioned your beauty routine yet!
