Blonde Ambition: Fresh Color for Your Wedding Day

When planning a wedding, everything revolves around a timeline. Meetings, fittings, tastings… there is a barrage of appointments up until the wedding day, including your pre-wedding cut and color.

Claire and Matthew had a gorgeous wedding at The Carolina Inn. This blonde bride had freshly colored hair for her wedding to ensure that there were no roots showing in photos. Book your hair cut and color 1-2 weeks before your wedding. Two weeks give that little extra time in case you need to go back and correct the color – this is especially important for blondes!

Photographer Cyn Kain was at The Carolina Inn taking these beautiful photos for Claire and Matthew while Makeup For Your Day‘s stylist Elizabeth and artist Thuy took care of the hair and makeup to ensure that everyone was looking and feeling beautiful.

Claire and Matthew were an amazing couple to work with. Claire was a stunning bride! Thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding day. We want to wish you all the best!
