TIP ON HAVING PICTURE PERFECT HAIR AND MAKE UP On Your Nuptials

Every bride wants to, and in fact must look beautiful, dazzling and make a lasting impression on her special day. Brides to be should begin consulting for hair and beauty 4 to 6 months before the wedding. Some brides opt to do the makeup themselves. Consider the shape of your face, the length of your hair, your trouble spot and your best facial feature. If the style you have chosen is for long hair and your hair is too short, you can get extensions.

For beauty, if your eyes are your best feature play them up with makeup to draw attention to them. If your trouble spot is your forehead, which, for example, you find is too high, you can choose a style that plays it down or hides it perhaps a fringe.

But why go through all the trouble? Why not choose to have a professional beauty consultant and a hairdresser make you look like a fairytale princess on this special day. For both of these, trusted names are a good way to go; recommendations should be highly considered. A personal consultation should be made from 4 to 6 months before the wedding. Consultations are often free of charge and the consultant will want to know your cosmetic background, hair history and what headpiece youve chosen to wear. Shell also want to discuss what you expect concerning your hair, make-up and nails so that she knows what can be done to meet those expectations. Remember to choose a look thats an extension of yourself, not someone elses look. Choose a style that you are sure of instead of adding to the tension of your wedding day by keeping on worrying about how the style looks on you. However, thats not to say that you cannot try a new look. Changes and experiments can be made successfully if the new look is tried out in advance. But why go through all the trouble?

HAIR
The stylist will help you decide on the suitable length of hair,type and placement of the headpiece, how the flowers will be placed and highlighting. Remember that you should have a style that will endure the long active wedding day: all the photographs, the dances, hugs and the elements of sun, wind and water during your honeymoon. Usually the hairdresser starts with a try out in the final 2 – 3 weeks before the wedding. The final styling is done on the morning of the wedding day.

NAILS
Manicure
Since you will be showing off your ring and there will be a lot of congratulatory handshakes, nails are a visual and important part of your wedding grooming. We have several nail salons with excellent manicurists. When going for manicure consultation, take along with you a swatch of the fabric your wedding gown is made of to give the manicurist an idea of how best to design your nails.

Pedicure
This is another important beauty treatment as it will improve your self-image and help you take time off to relax while having your feet done. Also it will ensure pretty feet during the honeymoon. Establish a relationship with a beauty salon so you can visit weekly for your manicures and pedicures in the days culminating to your wedding.

MAKE-UP
You will be the centre of attention on this day; all eyes on you. Numerous photos will be taken.Your make-up will help maintain your radiant good looks throughout the long day.

MALE GROOMING
Whereas there was a time it was a mark of shame for a man to be seen fussing over himself and a choking sight to see him stroll out of a salon, today this is a popular service. Many males are not afraid to fuss over themselves and it is no longer an eyebrow-raising sight to see a man in your local salon. Most male clients will get their final haircut 1-2 weeks before the wedding day and return for a shampoo and hair trim (beard and moustache included) a day before the wedding. A manicure is also high on the cards and roughened hands can be softened and ragged nails shaped.

DIET
Weight is a weighty issue to the bride. No one wants to feel-fat in their wedding gown or to have a few extra pounds that will mess up the dress fitting. Understandable, really, but steer clear of crash diets. All theyll do is give you fatigue, dizziness and even make you feel nauseous. Rather, for controlled weight loss, a combination of calorie reduction and exercise can be observed. If you can afford it, see a nutritionist and perhaps pop into a health and fitness club for examination, advice and recommendation. Of course for the best results, start months earlier.
