A wedding day is one of the most important days of a person's life, and because of this all eyes will be on the happy couple - so they will want to get all dolled up and stand out from the crowd.

To ensure they are wowing guests, some brides are now taking drastic action during their wedding day to remain the centre of attention.

And it involves changing up their hair halfway through the wedding.

According to Refinery29 , various women are now choosing to get their hair cut on their wedding day, during the small amount of time between the wedding ceremony and the reception.

It must be done quickly as according to traditional wedding etiquette , it is considered rude for a bride to be away from the celebrations for longer than 15 minutes.

One brave bride, named Kayla, opted to chop off her long blonde hair at her wedding into a long bob - right after the best man's speech and just before her first dance.

As she headed out for the first dance, AJ said her new brother-in-law was shocked by his wife's transformation, but "loved it so much".

AJ also noted that the change in her appearance gave Kayla a "new energy" and made her sister much more confident.

She added: "More than half my brides cut off their hair immediately after their wedding. If you're planning on cutting your hair after the wedding — why not just do it at the wedding, and make it the coolest second-look reveal?"
