Why Plan in Advance?
No matter what type of bridal beauty checklist you use, it’s a good idea to plan as far in advance as possible. Why? Because 60 % of a salon’s business happens on a Friday and Saturday. And chances are, you’re not the only one getting married that day. As early as your salon will allow, book your appointment at your favorite hair salon for wedding day hair and a trial run. Also, book your favorite nail technician for a wedding day manicure. And if you want your wedding party with you, be sure to book appointments for them, too.
Use this bridal beauty checklist as you move closer to your wedding date. And remember, it’s far better to have too much time… than not enough.Your Hair - Book a Trial Run
• Pictures of your dress (front and back)
• Any hair accessories you plan on wearing, such as your headpiece, barrettes, flowers, etc.
• Inspiration photos of your desired hair style
• A camera
At your trial run appointment, we start with a wash and blow dry. The remaining hours of your appointment are designed to create the look you want to achieve on your big day! Whether your look requires straightening irons or curling irons, intricate braids or soft teasing, we pay close attention to several factors, including the shape of your face, the way your hair grows and parts, current hair trends and the cut of your wedding dress. We’re here to listen, advise, create, adjust, and perfect your look, because it’s your wedding and we totally get it! Prices based on time required.

*We usually recommend that you come in the day before the wedding for a volume-shine conditioning blow out. This is great for the wedding rehearsal, rehearsal dinner photos and saves time the day of the wedding.
A bride should always book a professional make up artist for her wedding. But this doesn’t mean that you don’t have any decision-making to do. Tell your artist the same things you would tell your hair stylist. Share photos of your dress, share photos of you in different settings wearing your day-to-day makeup and your evening makeup, and bring inspirational pages from magazines. You make up artist will also try to understand the colors palette of your wedding and correlate everything.
Make-up services will be available, starting at $100 an hour for the bride & $75 for each bridesmaid.
