Now that you’ve chosen a wedding date, it’s time to start the countdown that is wedding planning. Many brides-to-be give reception sites and details top priority but forget to devote the same consideration to bridal hair styles.

Between scheduling, fittings and samplings, it can be easy to forget about hair care and wedding day preparation. To remind brides of the importance of this wedding day accessory, ISO, creators of

Innovative Styling Options for hair texture, offers these easy hair-care pointers.

1. Apart from being blessed with great hair genes, beautiful hair can also be the result of the masterful hands of a good stylist. If you do not have a winning relationship with your stylist, now is the time to seek out a new one. When you are comfortable with your stylist talk early on about what you envision for wedding day hair and schedule a practice run-through.

2. Don’t skip haircuts because you want long hair for your wedding. Regular cuts are essential to eliminating dead ends that can look dull and flyaway. Trims can also refresh the shape of your hair and make it easier to manipulate into your preferred wedding style. Plus, hair just looks and feels healthier with regular trims.

3. You don’t want to try drastic cuts or color options too close to the wedding, where you may not be able to fix a faux pas if the look isn’t to your liking. Rather, experiment with color or texture a few months in advance of the wedding so you’ll have time to tweak the look toward your desired finished product. To maintain color, remember to protect hair from harmful sunrays. Try a color-preserving serum like ISO Color Preserve infused with a proprietary Solar Seal complex, a sun-activated polymer that protects hair color by shielding UVA and UVB rays.

4. Many brides-to-be desire soft, free-flowing waves, or pulled-up looks with a few escaping curly tendrils. But not everyone is blessed with a head of curls. If your hair needs a texture boost, consider one of ISOÕs five state-of-the-art, damage-free texture options. These are not the perms and body waves of your youth Ñ there are no side effects of frizz or poodle curls involved. These innovative texturizers consistently deliver damage-free, predictable results, regardless of individual hair type and condition, including fine, previously permed, highlighted or bleached hair. For those seeking a temporary new look that washes out in 20 shampoos - just in time for a return trip from your honeymoon - “ISO Nexture” helps you achieve just that. For more information, visit

5. Wedding hair may involve intricate up-dos, hair extensions or pulled-back locks. But too much tension on the hair follicle for a prolonged period of time with tight braids or extensions can actually pull hair out by the roots. Try ISO’s Daily Finish to hold style with minimum tension. Release your hair as soon as possible after your wedding day.

6. Honeymoons often involve escapes to tropical paradises. Hot, humid temperatures can cause even the best-behaved hair to frizz. Practice easy, casual pulled-back looks that will help tame hair. ISO Daily Detail Putty helps to tame flyaways for an effortless ponytail in seconds! Don’t forget to rinse hair thoroughly with cool water if youÕve been swimming in a chlorinated pool or the salty ocean and can’t shower immediately after. Otherwise, you may end up with a head of frizzy, sticky hair.

7. Always be prepared for the unexpected, which may include a few errant locks that occur on your wedding day. Pack an “emergency kit” stocked with a brush or comb, hairspray, bobby pins or barrettes, anti-frizz or shine serum, and any other necessities you can think of. Try ISO Daily Spray Wax to smooth flyaways in a cinch. It’s also a good idea to have a backup pair of panty hose, safety pins and even a travel sewing kit just in case the unexpected is a wardrobe malfunction and not a hair emergency.
