How To Achieve The Perfect Wedding Updo Using Hair Extensions

You are the prettiest, most stunning person on your wedding day. You are the main character of the day and you deserve to have everything perfect on that day.

Here’s a one-stop perfect wedding updo guide so you don’t have to worry about your hair on top of everything else going on.

Achieving The Perfect Wedding Updo Using Hair Extensions

From the flower arrangements that line the red carpet to the altar to the cloth that covers the guest tables. From the color theme of the entourage to the tokens you’ll gift the guests when the ceremony ends. Most importantly, from the shoes you’re going to wear to the updo you’re going to style your hair in.

On your wedding day, everything should be perfect. Your hair, your dress, your makeup - everything. You deserve to be perfect.

Having the perfect wedding updo can be easily overlooked when you’re busy rechecking your guest list. It can also be easily forgotten when you’re making sure the wedding cake arrives and all the flowers you need for the venue are there.

To help you out, here’s a handy checklist of things that you should keep in mind to achieve the perfect wedding updo using hair extensions!

1. The perfect hair extensions

The first thing you should do is to pick out the right hair extensions

Hair extensions work best if nobody notices that you’re wearing any. If they look natural on you when you wear them, then that’s your sign that they’re the perfect extensions for you. Applying mismatched extensions will not only be terribly obvious, but it will also look awkward and will likely ruin your perfect wedding updo.

If you’re going to have an updo with a ponytail as base, you should use a clip-in ponytail hair extension.

If you’re looking for volume, you can choose between clip-in hair extensions and tape-in hair extensions. Clip-ins will be easier to wear and remove but tape-ins will blend seamlessly with your own hair. 

You can also opt to wear halo hair extensions if your hair is thick enough to cover the band.

2. The perfect hair color

Of course, you’re always free to go with your natural hair color if you wish. But if you’re feeling adventurous and brave, you can also choose to dye your hair extensions (and even your hair) a different color. If you only want to add a little lift to your hair color, you can also opt for balayage or ombre hair. Luckily for you, there are balayage hair extensions at Zala if you want to try out a new color but don't want the change to be so dramatic. You can also have instant highlights by wearing hair extensions in two different colors, like your natural hair color and another contrasting color.

3. The perfect hair state

After you wash, condition, and dry your hair and hair extensions, make sure to use the Zalaplex Hydrating Mask. Shiny and moisturized hair will always look more stunning than dry and limp locks.

If your hair extensions are tangled and have lost their shine, you can use the Revive Me Hair Treatment to control the frizz and return the shine. Simply put some on your palms and run your fingers lightly through the length of your extensions.

You can also apply the Mad Matter Volumizing Powder to help you hold the volume on your hair better and to give your hair some texture.

4. The perfect hair pre-style

Now that you have the perfect hair to work on, you have to prepare your hair for styling. For wedding updos, you can typically choose between braids, buns, or even a combination of both.

For easier styling and for more volume, curl your hair first in loose waves with the 4-in-1 Cosmo Curling Wand. Having loose waves before you work on your hairdo will give it more volume when you’re done.

Weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime thing, so you only get a single chance to have a perfect one.  Of course, what perfect wedding doesn’t include perfect wedding hair, right? Take your hair care seriously so that in the future, when you look back and see the pictures from your wedding album, you’ll feel happy at how fabulous and radiant you looked on your wedding day.
