We often get asked, “what do I need to do to prepare for my hair and make-up?” Whether it’s for the bridal trial, for the big day or having your make-up and hair done for any occasion this is all you should do before to prepare:
•Make sure you remove all traces of make-up including stubborn mascara.
•Clean off any traces of make-up remover (no oily residue on skin or especially around the eye area).
•Optional but beneficial: exfoliate gently to remove any dead surface skin. Your make-up will go on much more evenly and it also gets circulation flowing, making your skin glow.
•Moisturize your skin especially if you’re on the drier side.
•Have your eyebrows groomed and all unwanted hair waxed, tweezed, threaded, bleached, whichever you prefer, 2 days before (NO LATER!).
•Wash hair the day or night before and allow to either air dry or blow dry nicely. Keep it clean and not loaded up with product.
Some additional tips include:
•Refrain from the temptation to pick at any breakouts. Allow them to run their course. They are much easier to cover and much less prone to infection if they are left alone and not popped.
•If you are planning on having hair extensions put in, make sure you have them to apply for your trial and definitely have them colour matched for your hair and professionally cut to appropriate length before your wedding day.
•If you have any allergies make sure to inform the make-up artist and hair stylist about what products you tend to react to.
•false lashes look amazing but we suggest if you’ve never worn them before to give them a trial run before you plan on wearing them to a big event.
If you have any questions make sure to ask. We appreciate our clients asking anything they may be unsure about.
Follow these suggestions before your make-up and hair appointment and you’ll be guaranteed superb results.
