Trial or not to trial, that is the question?
The wedding season is coming fast. To all of our beautiful brides out there planning their big day, we have some advice.
Planning It's never too early to start thinking about your hair and makeup. Pinterest is a fantastic place to build a scrap book of ideas. Create a folder of ideas and keep going back to it because new content is added there daily. Try to be yourself. When you look back on your photos in years to come, you'll need to recognise yourself. Be honest. Never be agreeable with your stylist or friends regarding your chosen look. You'll end up not being happy with the results and there will be lots of photos to remind you. Practice. You wouldn't buy your dress without at least trying it on, so have as many trials as you need. Take pictures and make note of how comfortable and long lasting your look is. If your foundation fades fast or your curls drop straight, your stylists can make adjustments accordingly. Prepare yourself. Your hair and skin can only look as good as the condition it's in. Drink plenty of water, it's the best way to get your skin in perfect condition. Start using a skin prep scrub regularly. New skin is radiant. Dead skin cells are dull as dish water! Feed your face, have a programme of personalised facials and use quality products at home. Have good cut and colour that reflects your personality. Use quality products to cleanse, nourish, strengthen and add gloss to your locks. There's only so much we can do with dull, faded, split hair. Withought a magic wand... Accessories. There are lots of hair accessories on the market and it can be difficult to choose. Ask your stylist and friends for their opinion. After all they know you best. Don't be afraid to change your mind either. Review your Pinterest folder and try them in your hair. Bring them to your trial. You can return the ones you don't like. Extensions. Hair pieces can add length, volume and even colour to your style. They are a fantastic way of achieving a one day look. Alternatively you could look at a longer fix to your too short or too thin hair by asking your stylist in the salon.
