Hair Comes the Bride

Pin It Now!

Do Consider your hairstyle when choosing your veil 
Do consider how formal  your dress is when choosing your hair style
Do get a slight dusting trim to your ends two weeks prior to wedding for best hold with your style.
Do get instructions for your stylist on touching up your hair after taking out veil between ceremony and reception.
Do remain practical. Consult with your stylist concerning your style and your texture, climate, event schedule
Do wash  with sulfate-free shampoos/conditioners up until day before wedding. Prevents over drying of hair
Do pack hair touchup kit including travel size hairspray, bobbi pins and small travel comb. 
Do have a hair trial prior to the event day. This will help you know what to expect and ease your anxieties
Do bring with you a must have hair accessory to try with your style at the hair trial. If you don't have one ask your stylist to recommend.
Do schedule a deep conditioning and gloss treatment 1-2week prior to  your event. Especially blondes with dry damage locks.

Do Not make changes to your hairstyle on the day of your event. Your likely to regret both the whim you operated on and the fact that your stylist hasn't had the opportunity to try on your hair and could result in schedule mishaps.
Do Not wash your hair prior to styling. Fresh hair does not hold as well as day old hair. 
Do Not attempt a color job at home prior to your event. Leave this to the professionals.
Do Not choose a style that will overpower and steal the show over your gown. 
Do Not do the veil, glitsy comb and tiara all at the same time. You run the risk of looking like your in costume. Choose one glam detail. If its the veil, replace it with a glitsy comb or flower at the reception.
Do Not opt for prom-ish tendrils that are stiff with spray. Modern styles come from loose natural bouncy movement.

Your Skin and Winter

Pin It Now!

Here Comes the Winter! Don't let your face show it!

These products are absolutely amazing for normal to dry skin tones. No sacrificing quality or quantity for the price on this product as it is extremely concentrated. Unlike most cleansers, it removes makeup very well without over drying and stripping skin of it's natural oils. Extremely gentle and fragrance free for all sensitive skin ladies. Excellent and addicting from the first use!
The ultra facial cream is great for 24 hrs wear. It's light weight feel is comfortable and leaves your skin amazingly refreshed and balanced despite harsh weather.
And for a overhaul that will leave your skin the most moisturized and ready for your wedding day, I recommend taking advantage of the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Kit that is designed to cleanse, tone and hydrate your skin. Don't worry both cleanser and toner are mild enough even for sensitive skin.  These products are fragrance free. The scent you smell is simply from natural ingredients.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial 3-Step Set  - $24.50

I also recommend Kiehl's facial scrubs.

Milk Honey and Almond Scrub $20.50  - Great for sensitive, normal-dry skin. Enjoy a rich moisturizing feeling with your deep pore cleanse. 
Pinapple Papaya Scub $28.00 - This product is as yummy as it sounds! All natural pieces of pinnapple and papaya fruits as well as finely ground scrub grains to leave your skin with a finely polished feel.

And last but not least you must protect that kissable pout with none other then Kiehl's #1 Lip Balm!
This is so non greasy and comfortable I recommend keeping one in your purse and home at all times. Nothing worse then dry chapped lips on your wedding day. Another helpful hint: exfoliate your lips while exfoliating your face. This will help remove dead skin and make your lip balm sink in better. This lip balm is made with Lanolin and sweet almond oil as well as Vitamins A and E.
