Ask the Expert | Award Winning Be Bar Blow Dry Bar

We are lucky enough to catch up with the super talented Lindsey and Andrea from Be Bar Blow Dry Bar in Dubai.  Today they’ll give us some insights in to wedding hair trends for 2019 and the excellent services they provide.  They are experts at styling wedding hair and have been recognized two years running as ‘Bridal Stylist of the Year’ by Professional Beauty GCC!


What sort of services does Be Bar Blow Dry Bar provide?

Be Bar focuses on hair health and styling, so we offer a wide range of hair treatments and do blow drys, upstyles, and braids. We offer a range of hair and beauty services for our bridal clients, both in the salon or at the wedding venue. We aim to give brides a fully tailored experience so they can relax and enjoy the fun that comes with planning and celebrating the big day. This entails having a thorough bridal trial, so that our stylists and the bride can work out a plan in detail, leading to a stress-free wedding day.

Additionally, we offer treatments to get a bride’s hair in the best possible condition prior to the big day. We can offer add on services for nails, threading, and massage, so brides can be relaxed and polished from head to toe!

What do you enjoy most about doing bridal hair?

There are few moments in life as special as a woman’s wedding day, and it’s an honor to be trusted enough to be a part of making her feel exceptional on the day. There is an intimacy to working with a bride on her wedding day that is just so special, and the pressure of making sure the bride and the bridal party look picture perfect is exhilarating.

Tell us what are some trending bridal hairstyles for 2019?

There are some very exciting trends happening this year. We are seeing a lot of brides asking for upstyles that are classic in shape, but with pieces of the hair being pulled out to create a more modern, relaxed look with lots of texture and depth.

We don’t see a move from the ever-popular romantic waves. Brides want to feel like a princess on their big day, and the romantic waves give them that fairytale look.  And finally, loosely draped braids are still in heavy demand.

Have you got a signature hairstyle style?

Be Bar’s most popular styles are our ‘Be Romantic’ style and our classic ‘Be Flirty’, which is the quintessential bouncy blow dry. We’ve perfected the messy, braided upstyle, so it’s another frequently chosen style.

What has been your most memorable work?

One of the most memorable weddings we’ve worked on to date was for one of our loyal salon clients who asked us to do hair for her and her bridal party for her wedding in South Africa. She had a very detailed vision, and it was a blast to help her bring it to reality. The bride’s hair was reminiscent of Veronica Lake’s famous glamorous waves, and her bridesmaids all wore these fun, funky, knotted mohawk upstyles. While very different, the two looks complemented each other so well, and with all the other amazing details of the wedding, the pictures have just become so iconic to us that we always reach for them when showing off our bridal styling range.

Have you got any tips on how a bride can keep their hairstyle perfect throughout the entire wedding?

In theory a bride should not have to worry about her hair on her wedding day. The style should be so secure that it looks picture perfect all day long, and that’s something a good bridal hairstylist should know how to achieve. Saying that, it is always better to be prepared for the unexpected, so it’s best if one of the trusted bridesmaids has some spare bobby pins, a comb, and a little travel can of hairspray tucked away in their purse in case of a hair emergency.

How far in advance should a bride-to-be start plan her hairstyle for the big day?

We’re sure many women start planning details of their dream wedding well before they are even engaged. The real question is when is it best to start finding a stylist and building a relationship with them. It’s never too early to find an ideal stylist and secure the date; the best stylists book up fast! We advise that a bride has her first trial between 6 and 8 weeks before the wedding. This allows time to prepare the hair to make sure it is in the best condition for the big day and to prepare any hair extensions or hair accessories needed to make the style perfect, all of which we can help with.
