Hair, hair, hair! women love their hair and why shouldn’t they! after all hair is the crown of a woman. If you’re a bride looking to grow your hair by a few inches for the big day, or maybe you want to try a different style or color, then the months leading to the wedding provide you with the best opportunity to experiment and find out what works for you or not.
I advice that you talk to your hairstylist. Those on a budget and want to try hair coloring can try some drugstore coloring experiments. You’ll still have the chance to correct any mistakes! It’s also the time to start your search for a wedding day hairstylist and makeup artist. Even if you aren’t planning on using professionals, you’ll want to ask your friend or family member for their help now to make sure they are available and willing.
Start thinking about the overall health of your hair. You may want to start applying a deep conditioning treatment (available inexpensively at drugstores) once a week. If your hair is dry, consider changing to a moisturizing shampoo and/or shampooing less often. And stop diving headlong into that chlorinated water if you have light blond hair.
While some brides hire a professional makeup artist for their big day, it’s certainly possible to do your own wedding day makeup as long as you take some time to practice. And even if you do hire someone for your wedding day, you also need to look your best for your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, bachelorette party, and engagement photos.
At least a month before the first wedding-related event, visit a makeup counter or store and ask for a free makeover. If you like the results, consider which of the products you truly need and purchase them. If you don’t, speak up! And if they can’t give you a look you’re happy with, walk away. There’s no reason to purchase things you don’t need. Instead, try again with a different store or brand of cosmetics.
Then, peruse the online makeup tutorials and advice i.e. Makeupgeek and YouTube and practice until you get a look you’re happy with. Consider how you’ll tweak your look for daytime and evening events, and then for the wedding day itself.
Take photos under a variety of lighting, with and without the flash, and make sure that you don’t look washed out or overdone. The camera often makes you look like you’re wearing less makeup than you are, and you’re sure to have many photos taken of you over the next few months.
Most importantly, make sure you feel confident and radiant in your makeup look, so that you can truly be the blushing bride.
It’s hard to be beautiful when you’re tearing your hair out. Start out by dealing with the people who stress you out, and find time to relax. Exercise, yoga, and other physical activities will help build strength, energy, and relieve tension while you’re at it. You might want to talk to your doctor about good nutrition and exercise routines.
