Beautiful Bridal Skin

Perhaps nothing is more beautiful than the natural glow of happiness that becomes every bride. But to help that glow along, schedule a series of monthly facials beginning as early as six months before your wedding. To help ensure your skin looks picture perfect on your wedding day they advise your last facial to be no later than two weeks before the big day.

Timing Tips

Whether you treat yourself to professional treatments or do it on your own, to reduce the risk of redness, irritation, or even allergic reaction, avoid glycolic peels, dermabrasion, or anything chemical for at least one month prior to your wedding day.

Wedding Day

On the morning of the big day always start with a good cleanser making sure there is no previous makeup left on the skin and finish with a moisturiser so you are ready for when your makeup artist arrives.

A: Make sure you have your trial. The day of your wedding is not the day to trial. Don’t be scared of hair pieces because a lot of the time what you see in magazines or on celebrities is not all their own hair. So extensions and hairpieces are great. If you don’t have thick hair or the texture is not amazing, think about putting some pieces in to change it around because it will give you the thickness you want, the texture you want and it’s less to worry about. Consider the conditions you’re going to be in. If you’ve having an outdoor beachy wedding, having it all down and flowy is not going to work. If you don’t mind it being all over the place then go for it.

When should I shampoo my hair

It depends on your hair type. I always advise hair is washed the day before if it’s being styled. Simply because, if it’s too clean, it can be slippery and it may not hold in place. If you find that your hair is in need of shampoo on your wedding day, shampoo it, and use a product that will give it texture and body, such as sea salt spray or a light-weight mousse. It will also give it grip. Please don’t shampoo your hair the morning of an have it wet when the stylist arrives it will take twice as long to dry and can cause everyone to run late.
