First you should ask how they know the particular stylist and have they used the stylist themselves. Than see if there are pictures and references available. The next step after narrowing down the selection process is setting up a trial. You should bring all that you plan on wearing on your wedding day - veil, clips, tiaras, pins, hair pieces, extensions, flowers, etc... What we suggest you have at least 3 photos of styles that you are considering: front, back, sides - also bring the photo of your wedding dress.
Your stylist should recommend the most suitable style based on the shape of your face, the length of your hair and the style of your dress. Dont be afraid to try styles that werent originally your selection, since the weather, specially humidity may play a big role in the longevity of your style. Play, be open to your stylist suggestions and most of all enjoy your time finding your perfect style. You should feel comfortable with your stylist, because they are your key team members. We have narrowed it down to simply this: after your wedding is done the most important memories will be captured by your photographer. When your hair and make up are spot on and your photos are crisp and clear - you have hit the memory jackpot. Everything fades except the wedding photo of you and your better half.
Q:How long in advance should the trial be done?
A: Trials should be performed no later than 2 months in advance of your wedding. Your hair and your skin should be approximately the same as the day of the wedding thus leaving very little to chance.
Q: How long before the wedding should i get my hair cut?
A: We suggest not cutting your hair for at least a month prior to your wedding - freshly cut hair may create hard lines and may not stay as well as hair that has been left growing for few months. If there is a need to trim certain pieces it an be done on the day of the wedding avoiding hair thats too short.
Q: Should I get a facial before my wedding
A: Facials are a great way to cleanse your skin before your wedding however if you are not used to getting them regularly - hold off. We suggest you get a facial 6 months before your wedding. See if your skin is sensitive, if you experience breakouts - that is perfectly normal for the first time- however if the skin blemishes continue after facial number 2, inform your esthetician and visit a dermatologist to make sure you don't have allergies to products you are not aware of.
