Get Wedding Ready Part 3: Make-Up


The finishing touch to the perfect bridal look, your makeup.  The makeup should reflect your personality and enhance your natural beauty.  If you're doing it yourself, invest in a good foundation and/or concealer to build a nice clean canvas for the makeup.  A makeup primer is a great way to make the makeup last longer.  If you plan to have a makeup artist, always do a consultation.

Get Wedding Ready Part 2: Hair


Of course you don't have to commit right away, but if you love a style and need to grow it out or get a cut, always consult with your stylist to get you there.  Bring pictures of styles that you like and of course the picture of the dress.  Any headpiece or tiara should be mentioned in the consultation so the stylist will know what's the best placement for it.

If you don't have 8-9 months to grow out your hair, extentions are another option to get the length you're looking for.  And it can also help clients with thin hair.  Extensions can be the permanent bonds or the temporary wefts.  Again consult with your stylist.

Then discuss your color, cut and conditioning treatments.  Remember, your stylist needs time to perfect your wedding day look.

Get Wedding Ready: What you need to know and do!

This week is all about getting wedding ready. Here's the 3 most important for brides when preparing for the perfect day----Skin, Hair, and Makeup.


To best prep skin before the wedding is at least 9 months, but some of us don't have that much time.  If you're using any prescribed or over the counter facial products, most of them require at least a few months to take full effect.  The solution, set up a series of facials or chemical peels with an esthetician. Each treatment is 100% customized to your skin's needs.  Whether you're dry, oily, or sensitive, they can help to make sure you look your best on your perfect day.

Facials cleans, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin to promote clear and a well-hydrated skin.  First a skin analysis  is done to determine what treatment and products to be used. Next, is exfoliation.  Mechanical exfoliation has a gritty texture and is used with a steam vapor directed at the face.  Chemical peels can be part of a facial, but it's usually a stand alone service that can be done in a series.   Then, extraction is done to remove blackheads and whiteheads.  It is not recommended for really sensitive skin since it can cause discoloration if done improperly.  Effleurage is a facial massage using classic strokes to both relax you and stimulate the your skin and facial muscles.  A customized facial mask is then apply to the skin.  Lastly, applications of toners and protective creams for the skin.
