Brides-to-be have another reason to smile: Tabatha Coffey is turning their wedding day into a great hair day, too.

"Don't get so wrapped up in the dress and event details that you forget all about your hair until the last minute," the Tabatha Takes Over star warns BellaSugar.

Take the first step toward your dream ‘do by doing your research. "I recommend that my clients look at fashion magazines and celebrity rags over wedding magazines for ideas. If you have a few different ideas for your hairstyle, then bring pictures to your pre-wedding hair consultation so that you can discuss your options with your hairstylist."

By the way, Kim Zolciak, you were right: Cutting your hair on your wedding day – wig or not – is a big no-no (SEE HER WEDDING PHOTO ALBUM). "I'm always surprised at the number of brides who want to cut and color their hair the day of the wedding. What if something goes wrong? Timing aside, haircuts and hair color usually look best once they've had time to ‘settle in' and soften," T adds.

As her final blissful word to the wise, the It's Not Really About the Hair author reminds brides, "Be yourself — but better. You don't want to be unrecognizable at your own wedding or, worse, cringe when you look back at your photos in the years to come. Go for a dressed-up version of a hairstyle that is most flattering to your face and figure."
