You are now engaged to him….evident by the permanent smile on your face, the gleam in your eyes and that gorgeous shine on your left hand.
The Bride’s head-piece/train/veil…works best with the right hair style. And the best hairstyle for you is that one in a million dollar version of YOU. Do not have an extreme wedding day makeover for one day. He’s marrying you…not a celebrity look-alike. Be enchanting …yes…just do not look at your wedding pictures later and see someone who looks like a fairy-tale version of your divine truth.
A little more than 25 years ago I attended a Bridal Expo in Philadelphia, PA. There were literally thousands of BRIDES…moving about here… there and everywhere.
One of my hair customers Tina and Carla designer and owner of Signature Weddings…requested I join her at one of the largest Bridal Expos in the USA. I took five models, and prepared to create, 1 mother of the bride, 1 bride’s maid, and 3 brides.
While creating Special Wedding Day hairstyles…the brides would observe what I was doing…and then decide to sign up for a complimentary wedding day consultation. Once the day was over, I had received over fifty signatures. I was honored to be chosen by so many.
For a very reasonable price, I offered at least a six appointments………. pre-wedding day, the day before and the day of her wedding, and one appointment after the honeymoon. The brides to be loved it. I was booked up with bridal appointments for almost 18 months in advance….
So now I will share what I believe to be great Wedding Day Hair Care…….. Don’t just spend all of your time only choosing a gown or dress, finding that unforgettable place, or choosing your wedding party, and all the special little unique touches…pertaining to the reception.
Go to the salon you will be using for your special day at least three times or more before you say ‘I do”…… You and your stylist need to get familiar with you and your crowning glory. Talk EVERYTHING over, again and again…until you are satisfied and complete in your heart and mind. This will also give your hair time to grow and become healthier…especially should you be someone who only goes to a salon for cuts, trims, and coloring…a few times a year.
And please help your stylist by purchasing home care products that will support all the work she or he is doing. Doing this will guarantee you a perfect Wedding Day Hair Care experience.
Finally, make sure your bridal package includes an appointment after the honeymoon. Whether you and your Mr. Right…go someplace where there is water…such as the beach or ocean…or…you choose to have a stay-cation honeymoon…your hair will need to be restored to a more manageable state.
Create a special Wedding Day Hair Care package for you…negotiate for a very special discount…after all you are giving him or her a lot of business with about 5 – 8 appointments…3 – 6 before the wedding day…1 for the day…and 1 after the honeymoon. It is all up to you and…of course…your budget. I always started my Brides To Be…6 months before the day…coming at least once a month for special conditioners and treatments.
Special Note….Anyone on a special weight loss program…it has been my experience as a hair treatment specialist…that because of all the extra working out for that absolutely gorgeous body….your body will require extra nutrients to maintain its healthy balance and fitness. THIS IS VERY SERIOUS…The hair is the last part of the anatomy to get fed nutrients….so extra special hair and scalp care is a must….this package is really for you.
Feed the hair and scalp topically with the best products you can buy…organic, natural shampoos and conditioners….and…I highly recommend a leave in products that fortify and help your hair.
Eat live, organic, healthy foods that give life back to you and drink plenty of water…. preferably water that is organically enhanced with nutrients. I recommend using only natural hair care products for your scalp. Contact me for more information at rafreekah(@)gmail.com
