Why are bridal clients a good market for salons to tap into?

The bridal market is a fantastic service to offer within a salon and a great market to be in. A wedding day s one of the most important days of a girls life, so to be able to offer hair and beauty services as a package under the one roof is something that will appeal to many brides. They want to ensure their day runs smoothly and they are receiving the best possible service. By offering both services under one roof will off course increase revenue and interest thanks to word of mouth.

Last Minute Skin Saviours - What to Do if You Break Out Before Your Big Day.

Don't Freak Out.

The first thing to do is to not stress out too much (stress can be the cause of breakouts). While it might not be in your ‘vision’ of the perfect day, clever makeup will cover up most issues nicely, so there’s no need to panic.

Don’t Pick.

While it might be tempting to tackle the blemishes ‘head on’, it’s definitely not the solution - especially with your big day looming. This is because it’s much easier to cover up a red bump with makeup, than it is to cover up a crusty or weeping wound. 

Stick to Your Usual Routine.

What should you wear to a winter wedding?

Winter

While it’s never particularly easy to pick out a wedding guest outfit, it’s definitely more of a challenge in the colder months. In summer, clothing shops are full of pretty dresses and barely-there sandals, which are perfect for a wedding in the sun. But, as winter comes around, the high street becomes flooded with big coats and knitwear — things that wouldn’t make the most sophisticated of wedding ensembles. 

However, it is possible to put together a winter wedding outfit that is both stylish and practical. Here are some pieces you should consider wearing.

Eyebrow do's and dont's!

Eyebrow

DO...try a fibre brow gel such as the newly launched must have tinted brow mascara from Lord & Berry. It is designed to hydrate, enhance and define your eyebrows whilst tinting. A great product for filling in brow gaps whilst still looking natural.

DON’T... go product-free. Whilst the natural look is fully promoted, a little bit of love and attention before leaving the house will go a long way when it comes to your brows. Even if it’s a quick 3 second sweep with the eyebrow brush.

DO...match your brow colour to your roots. This is the most effective colour matching system to achieve a natural look and framing of your face.

What’s the difference between microblading and traditional permanent brow treatments?

Both methods give the client beautiful eyebrows with the use pigments rather than ink but the method of applying the pigment is what differs Microblading and traditional permanent brow treatment, and the final finished treatment also differ in several ways.


Don’t lose face on your wedding day!

This summer many women will have watched the likes of Love Island and TOWIE and been inspired by the perfect pouts and brows galore to try an aesthetic procedure. As these kind of procedures become increasingly mainstream, it’s easy to forget that they are treatments designed to change your face and therefore must be taken seriously! 

So, while a bargain price tag for a procedure may entice you initially, please remember the old adage ‘if something sounds too good to be true… then it probably is!’ Cheaper price tags often mean poor patient care, low quality products and a severe lack of attention to safety policies and procedures, not to mention the cost of any corrective work required after a bad procedure.  

Picture perfect for your wedding day

On your wedding day, you want everything to be just perfect. From the weather, cake, dress to makeup.  

We all have an idea how we want to look on the day but  when it comes to the wedding photos; it can be a daunting experience.  How do you look picture perfect with a confident smile?

There is no point in having the perfect lipstick shade for your complexion,  when you your teeth are the same colour as your fake tan!    A very visible part of your appearance in photos, your teeth need to be a big part of your big bridal beauty routine.
