Smile!

Sport Some Lashes

Nothing feels quite so glamorous as having a full set of lashes to brighten up your eyes. Our makeup artists can either give you beautiful lash extensions or temporary false lashes for that extra wow factor. These big lashes can also work great with soft or natural colors.

Statement Hairpiece

Bohemian gals, rejoice! There is room for a statement hairpiece in your ensemble on your special day! Wedding hair and makeup should be about your style and what makes you comfortable and at ease. Floral headpieces add a splash of color and uniqueness to your whole look and can complement a flowing gown quite nicely. On the other hand, if a luxurious crown or tiara is more your style, feel free to frost your cake with some bling that can be seen all the way down the aisle. As such, these accessories can often dictate your hairstyle so remember to bring them during your hair trial.

A Romantic Braid

Braids are making a comeback as well. A crown-circling twist or French braid cascading down the back will keep your tresses under control while adding a soft and romantic flair to your look. They can also be enhanced with few sprigs of your favorite flower or baby’s breath. What’s better is that they also work

Your wedding is such a joyous occasion and as a bride, you have to look your best during your special day. Choose your hairstyle and makeup depending on the style of your dress, your wedding theme, and the time and setting of the ceremony, and don’t be afraid to glam it up a bit. After all, it is your big day!

Also, hair and makeup trials exist for a reason. So schedule some sessions with our trusted hair and makeup
stylists and ask for their professional styling and advice.

Achieving the perfect wedding hair and makeup should be an enjoyable process; relish the attention and look forward to the perfect wedding day filled with wonderful memories!
