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.
It’s YOUR Day!!!
The Bride’s head-piece/train/veil works best with the right hair style. And the best hairstyle for you is that million dollar version of YOU.
Do not have an extreme wedding day makeover for one day. Remember he is marrying you…not a “you” celebrity look-alike.
Be enchanting, absolutely, just do not look at your wedding pictures later and see someone who looks like a holly-wood or 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, owner of Signature Weddings…asked me to 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, brides from everywhere would observe what I was doing and decided 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 a six appointment package. They would receive several pre-wedding day appts, a day before and day of her wedding, and one appointment after the honeymoon. The brides loved it. I was booked up with bridal appointments for 18 months.
Wedding Day Hair Care Tips:
So now I will share what I believe to be great Wedding Day Hair Care.
Do not just spend all of your time “only” choosing a gown or dress, finding that unforgettable place, choosing your wedding party, and all the special little unique touches pertaining to the reception.
Add to that list, the salon you will be using for your special day. You should use that salon/stylist 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.
Ask your stylist what home care products to purchase to 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.
Do not be afraid to request 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. It is all up to you and…of course…your budget.
I always started working with my Brides, 6 months before the special 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 products that fortify and help your hair….when the wedding is over.
Eat live, organic, healthy foods that give life back to you and drink plenty of water…. preferably water that is naturally pure and possibly enhanced with nutrients. I recommend using only natural hair care products for your scalp/topical use. Contact me for more information at rafreekah(@)gmail.com
