Wedding Beauty Tips

Every bride dreams of having her best hair day ever on her wedding day. Hairstyles are very subjective – you like what you like and you know what makes you feel gorgeous. When it comes to your wedding hairstyle, think of it as a chance to give your familiar hairdo a bridal upgrade. The ultimate goal is to find a look that’s a slightly fancier version of yourself.

Don’t make this the day you’re trying out some totally new look for the first time!

Wedding Hairstyles You Will Love

From pretty ponytails to the classic half-up, half-down style, there are so many gorgeous hairstyles you can rock for your “I do” moment. How about lush locks down in romantic, soft curls spilling over your shoulders? Or sweeping your hair up in chic and clean chignon for a totally timeless formal vibe. To elevate your bid day ‘do, think of incorporating some unique and unexpected hair accessories or even flowers into your style.

When choosing a stylist, it’s vital to schedule a trial run appointment before you book them for your wedding. Especially if you are using a new stylist, this trial allows them to get a feel for your hair and for you to get to know someone who is going to be with you at a potentially stressful time. You want someone you feel comfortable with and someone who will be able to stay calm and professional.

Bring Photos

At your trial, bring your stylist a few photos of looks that you like and tell them why you like them. Is it the curls, the colors, the accessories? Keep in mind the neckline of your dress and any jewelry you plan on wearing, along with your veil or other headpiece.
Even the very best stylists can’t replicate a style exactly, but a professional will be able to give you helpful advice and show you what is possible with your hair type.

Whether your hair is curly or straight, long or short, find your inspiration and let your stylist work their magic to create the perfect hairstyle for you and your wedding.

Wedding Skincare Tips

Starting a wedding beauty regimen is a great way to practice some self-care, while helping you de-stress ahead of your nuptials. And of course, each step will aid you in perfecting your wedding-day look, giving you the beautiful glowing skin you deserve on your big day.

Decrease Stress

Anxiety can disrupt your sleep and lead to a gray, decidedly un-bridal complexion. The fix? Do what you can to chill out, whether that means hitting a yoga class after work or guided meditation apps.

Consider Laser Hair Removal

There’s no better excuse than your wedding (and honeymoon!) to treat yourself to laser hair removal. Is it a splurge? Yes, but it will be so worth it when shaving your armpits and legs is the last thing on your mind.

Visit An Aesthetician

If you really want to keep your skin under control leading up to your wedding, find a reputable aesthetician in your area to help maintain skin in tip-top shape. Be sure to speak up and address your goals and needs and let the professionals create a regime especially for your skin type. Don’t go overboard with the treatments either, because post-facial flare-ups are likely.

Nourish Your Skin

Your skincare routine always starts in the shower. Use a sulfate-free gentle cleanser for softer, smoother skin after just one shower. We recommend gently patting skin dry instead of rubbing, and applying lotion within minutes of getting out of the shower to lock in moisture before it evaporates. Get in the habit of doing this for beautiful skin from head to toe come your wedding day.

Skip The Wine And Start Juicing

Because vino is such a world-class dehydrator, capillary-breaker, and radiance-robber, downing endless glasses is one of the biggest crimes against complexion brides-to-be commit. Although it may be impossible to give up your favorite glass of wine completely, try substituting it with a healthy green juice drink to oxygenate your skin, stimulate your lymphatic system and bring back that healthy glow.

Take Time To Exfoliate

As dead cells accumulate on the skin, they interfere with light reflection and give it a dull appearance. Regular facial exfoliation paired with a brightening serum will give you the best lit-from-within glow on your wedding day. For the rest of you, a body brush might be one of the best inexpensive (less than $20) beauty investments you make. Dry-brushing yields major skin benefits, including exfoliation and increased blood circulation. Start with three dry-brushing sessions per week, building up to daily, and be sure to moisturize afterward. Your skin will love you for it.

Get That Spray Tan Glow

A professional sunless spray tan will even out skin tone, and help camouflage any imperfections like stretch marks, scars, redness, and cellulite. Get a trial spray tan before your dress fitting to figure out if you want to go darker or lighter before the big day. A week before the big day, start exfoliating your skin in preparation for your spray tan and schedule an appointment 2 days before your wedding to look your very best.
