Cara Clyne

Cara is one of the newest accounts I started following last year but by far one of my favourites, so much so I attended a one-on-one workshop with her while I was in Australia earlier this year! Cara spent time training with Ulyana Aster and Tonya hairstylist (another must follow account) and their influence has lead Cara to create her own effortless approach to hair for modern bride. @caraclyne.bridal

With the hot humid months of summer now upon us  taming our manes can be more challenging then ever! But we have got you covered with expert tips and solutions on how  to keep your hair looking amazing through those hot summer wedding days and nights...

1. Hydrate

Having an outdoor wedding means that you will be dealing with humidity and hair that has the potential to frizz or become fly-away! Hydration is the secret to conquering frizz and fly-aways. Tame your mane in the lead-up to the wedding by topping up the moisture levels with weekly hydrating treatments, and leave-in moisture creams and  oil based serums. Stop the moisture routine a week prior to the wedding to ensure your hair won't be weighed down with extra moisture.

2. Bedhead

Waking up your wedding day morning with a serious case of bedhead is not the best start to picture perfect hair especially when you will also be dealing with the outside elements. Invest in a hair-friendly silk pillow case to help reduce static, frizz and to preserve your fresh blow-out which is the foundation for your wedding day hairstyle.

3. Updos

All hair types come with limitations and the location of the wedding day should be a factor when choosing a wedding hairstyle. Updo's especially braids are fantastic for the warmer humid months and out door celebrations as they will stay in place all day leaving you with one less thing to worry about.

If updo's aren't for you consider your natural texture and try to work with it. If your hair is naturally frizzy or fly- away consider a beach wave texture or hairstyles that are undone and imperfect like a textured pony or half updo.

4. Be prepared

We are all about preventative measure and one of the best ways you can prepare the hair for an outdoor ceremony is with the right products. Your outdoor survival kit should contain a mini hairspray that does not contain water, there will be plenty of moisture in the air and hairspray that is water-free is and will help combat frizz. A few bobbie pins, Anti-humidity spray is a must for those hot humid days and last but not least a bounce dry sheet always comes in handy for static fly-away hair.
