Learn the Hair Do’s and Don’ts for Your Wedding Day

Now that wedding season is in full force, Signature Salon & Spa wants you to know the top secrets when it comes to looking your very best for the big day. With so many different types of brides out there it can be a bit overwhelming trying to figure out what style best suits you. If you are having a hard time deciding on a look, remember to just be yourself, don’t overdo it and follow these helpful tips.    

Wedding Hair Tips

After securing the wedding dress of your dreams, the next step is to decide on the hairstyle to best complement you and the gown. Your hair shouldn't be competing with your dress. If your dress is simple, it's safe to go with a more dramatic hairstyle. If your dress is extravagant with lots of embellishing details, a more subtle yet elegant updo may work best. Side braids and pony tails are ideal if your dress has an opened back design. Ensuring your hair works with the climate is also important. If you are getting married somewhere warm and humid, wearing your hair down and curly might not last. An updo to avoid the heat, sweat and frizz should be considered. 

Wedding Hair Accessories 

Embellish Simply for a Timeless Look 

Wedding Hair and Makeup Tips

A beautiful hair accessory is a simple way to immediately elevate your ‘do into a unique and graceful work of art. Veils are the classic hair accessory for brides, though fascinators and tiaras are popular as well.

If you are looking for a more nature-inspired look, consider placing delicate flowers alongside your hair piece. For a more nostalgic look, a feather blusher gently placed sideways creates the most romantic bride. 

While the numerous bridal websites available will offer you a bevy of ideas no matter what you choose, it’s important to get a professional to place your hair accessory perfectly. Whether you choose to be a classic bride or a modern princess, Signature Salon & Spa will create the most beautiful hair look and accessorize it for your fairy-tale moment. 

Makeup Tips for Brides

Whether you choose to have your make-up done professionally or plan to do it yourself there are basics every bride should know. Similar to your hair, climate should play a part in your selection of makeup. Beach wedding makeup needs to be completely different from a traditional indoor wedding so be sure you take your wedding venue into account.  

Top wedding day makeup tips:

  • Create better pictures by accentuating your eyes with darker makeup.
  • Waterproof mascara is a must! If you lack in the eyelash department false eyelashes are a great substitute. 
  • Added color to your face is recommended, even if you don’t normally wear makeup. Bridal makeup needs to have enough color to compensate for the whiteness of your dress and to help your best features stand out in pictures. 
  • Be sure you have necessities like lipstick in the event you need to touch up between the ceremony and reception.
  • Apply a primer to ensure your makeup lasts the entire day. 

Be Proactive And Take Care Of Your Skin 

While we all know having a thorough day and night skincare routine is important at all times it’s extremely important 3-6 months prior to your wedding. The added stress of wedding planning can sometimes cause skin problems and taking proactive care of your skin will offset the damage. Better skin care will help with how makeup looks and stays on the skin, giving you more confidence and ensuring your photos look flawless. 

Signature Salon & Spa encourages brides to consider having a facial or an exfoliation treatment before their wedding day to help improve skin. We highly recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our aestheticians to find the best facial treatment for your skin.

Hair and Makeup Trial Run

This is an absolute must! Once you've decided on a hairstyle you like, it is extremely important  to do a trial run with your hairstylist. Any issues or setbacks can be figured BEFORE your wedding day. Concerns like knowing if your hair is long enough for the updo you want or if you will even like how it looks can be determined before it’s too late. It's always better to address these last minute surprises ahead of time so you can be stress-free the day of! Signature Salon & Spa also recommends sharing any and all inspiring photos with your stylist so he/she can visually see your interests.
