Wedding planning can be a nightmare — and while Pinterest can be a huge asset in figuring out your look, it also provides so many choices that it can be confusing. That's why we called in celebrity hairstylist (and DIY genius) Sarah Potempa to help curate a week's worth of bridal hairstyles (plus one bonus lewk!) that fit an array of personalities and preferences. Consider this your one-stop shop for hair-spiration.
If you're not familiar with Sarah, then you need to start following her on Instagram stat. Last year, she challenged herself to share 100 days of fresh hairdos on the social media outlet. This year, she created 365 days of braids (for real!). Not only does she have many celebrity clients — like Lea Michele and Margot Robbie — but she's also the mastermind behind the first-ever rotating curling iron, The Beachwaver. We know that is a lot of awesomeness to take in, and if you think Sarah is the unicorn of the hair beauty biz, then you're not alone.
Here, she offers advice on getting prepped for the big day. "On your wedding day, you should feel like an elevated version of yourself," Sarah says. "If you always wear your hair down, find your dream down hairstyle. The same goes for if you always wear your hair up. This will make you feel superglam but comfortable at the same time. Also, it is important to do hair trials to see how that style feels and lasts all day. I love to wear my hair down but wanted a look that I wouldn't normally wear day-to-day. For my wedding day, I went with classic old Hollywood. It was perfect and lasted all day long!"
