There are so many little details when it comes to planning your wedding it's easy to forget to make an appointment for one of your pre-wedding beauty services. Here are some suggested appointments you may be wanting to make and when to make them!
Hair Cut and Color
We recommend setting this appointment about 3 weeks out from the wedding. When it comes to your hair style you want you dead ends to be cut off and your color to look fresh. We recommend if you are planning to change your cut or color from what it is currently that you start that process at least 6 months prior to the wedding date. If you are doing a total color change such as going dark to blonde we recommend starting that at least a year out from the wedding in order to allow enough time for your hair to get to where you are wanting in a healthy process.
When it comes to spray tanning you want to be sure your skin tone turns out the color you want it. For the best results you should go in and get a couple of spray tans prior to the wedding. Go a month before the wedding to make sure you love the tone your skin is to test it out. You should get your final spray tan 2-3 days before the wedding. You don't want it to be to fresh but also want it to have time to settle. We also highly recommend finding a specialist who will hand spray you. This will ensure your tan comes out completely even.
If you plan on whitening your teeth yourself with an over the counter regimen such as strips or gel you want to start this habit at least 3 weeks out from your wedding date in order to get the full effect. Before attempting any at home whitening be sure to completely read the directions. If you are getting them professionally whitened consult with your dentist. You definitely want to avoid foods and drinks that can stain your teeth the week of your wedding.
You want to plan on making your nail appointment 2-3 days prior to your wedding. This allows you enough time to find a place to squeeze in your nail time without them being too grown out by the wedding day. Make sure you go to a trusted nail salon. Maybe even make an appointment for your nails prior to the wedding if you don't already have a regular place to test them out.
Facials and skin care are a tricky thing because you don't want to start a new regimen too close to your wedding date. If you know you have some skin issues you're wanting cleared up or just wanting to have beautiful glowing skin for your big day we suggest making an appointment with a local esthetician 4-6 month prior. This will allow enough time for your skin to adjust to a new skin care routine or new products. It will also give you enough time just in case your skin were to have an allergic reaction. After getting on your routine we suggest having your final facial before the wedding one week out.
When it comes to waxing especially on your face you want to be sure you are going to somewhere trusted and clean. Check out the different places in your area and find a place a few months prior and try them out. You want to be sure you don't have an allergic reaction to the wax. We recommend your final wax be about 4-7 days out from the wedding. After a fresh wax sometimes it makes it harder for makeup to stick to that area creating an uneven coloration of your skin.
