How do I prepare for my appointment?
- Research looks. Take the time to scroll through endless Pinterest/Instagram/Google images of bridal hair and makeup looks. choose and save photos that are consistent with your own hair and facial features. Please keep in mind, that pictures on the internet are photo-shopped, or smoothed out and are taken in better “light” and professionally taken by professional photographer, so please keep this in mind but we will try to replicate it as close as possible.
- Hair has to be dry and not damp or wet prior to styling. There will be a additional fee of $30 blow dry fee if stylist has to dry hair prior to styling
- Wash your hair the night before (so it has time to regain its natural oils) and don’t put in any product. If you need to do a little taming with a straightener or curling iron, that’s OK—just don’t overdo it. You want your hair to be as natural as possible. ++If you need to wash the day of that’s alright just put some mousse or gel in your beautiful locks after you wash to give your hair a little extra holding power. Then make sure you dry your hair completely as this is key in weatherproofing your hair.
