If you aren't already blessed with curls and you want to wear them at your wedding, here are a few tips for keeping curls looking gorgeous all day. 

1) Don't wash your hair right before you curl it. Waiting a day will make your hair less soft and more able to curl.

2) Prep your hair with mousse or texture spray before curling.

3) Use a high-quality curling iron or big rollers, The barrel size of the iron will determine the size of the curl.

4) Don't brush your curls out until you are ready to be seen, and consider using your hands to gently separate them instead of a brush. If you brush your curls right away it is unlikely your hairstyle will last through the night. 

5) Professionals apply hairspray to bridal hairstyles to keep the curls from coming loose and to manage fly-aways. Bring a trial size with you to keep in your purse and have a curling iron on hand for touch ups.
