- Gather Inspiration
Does your wedding have a theme? Do you love a certain celebrity’s look? Maybe you had your glam done one time for your sibling’s wedding and you loved it so much. You can find inspiration in so many places! Save photos of hair and makeup looks you would love to try. Your stylist and makeup artist would love to see them during your trial!
- Haircare Maintenance and Prep
One to two weeks before your wedding, you’ll want to be sure to schedule your last color and haircut sessions. This way your hair is in peak condition for styling on wedding day. Kerastase Fusio-Dose treatments are our favorite way to add nutrients to treat your hair needs. We recommend having a fusio dose treatment once a month leading up to your wedding day. The day before your wedding, cleanse and dry your hair smoothly. Be sure to only use a light leave in heat protectant while your hair is damp. Skip any other products and any thermal work tools, such as flat irons. Sleep on a satin pillow case to reduce hair fall & breakage.
- Skincare Maintenance and Prep
Hydrated and clean skin is the easiest way to ensure your wedding day makeup lasts all day. A Hydrafacial once a month leading up to your wedding day will leave your skin feeling refreshed and glowing. Schedule your last Hydrafacial up to one week before your wedding. On the morning of wedding day, cleanse with your favorite daily cleanser, and moisturize. To learn more about why we choose Hydrafacial, click here
- Fuel + Hydrate
Remember today is your day to enjoy! Take your time in the morning to eat a good breakfast and drink a glass of water. We welcome you to bring any food or drink to the salon for your party to enjoy while getting ready. We’ll provide the water and celebratory champagne!
Before you head out the door, you’ll receive your very own reusable [salon]718 Bridal touch up bag. It’s packed with essentials for the rest of your day, plus a little something extra from the team.
