How do I get luminous, shiny hair for my wedding day?

Kim Vo

Shiny hair is just as important as a glowing complexion to look completely radiant on your wedding day. To get the scoop on how to up the shine factor of your hair, we went to Eva Scrivo, NYC salon owner and celebrity colorist. Eva says:

“Glossy hair is healthy hair and the easiest and best thing you can do to improve your hair health is to brush it regularly. This will stimulate your scalp to produce its own natural oils and when you brush these natural oils through your hair, they make your hair more
luminous, less frizzy and permanently improve the texture and structure of your strands. I recommend using a Mason Pearson Boar Bristle Brush.

You should also get a clear glaze done at your favorite salon. This shine-inducing treatment only takes about  five minutes and will instantly add a youthful vitality and luminosity to your hair.

One final tip: choose styling products that won’t mask the natural shine and color of your hair. For example,  L’Oreal Paris Elnett Strong Hold Hairspray is extremely lightweight, translucent, and comes in a fine aerosol mist that disperses a small amount at a time. It gives great hold without dulling your gorgeous hair color.

All of these tips together should ensure glossy, shiny, gorgeous hair for your wedding day hairstyle!”
