Getting Ready for the Big Day

It’s wedding season and whether you are the belle of the ball or just attending one, at Accolades Salon and Spa, we know how important it is to bring your A game. To ensure you look your best, here are a few tips to properly prepare yourself for the big occasion:

  • Practice Make Up: A dry run for make-up is the only way to try out that timeless and memorable look without the pressure. If working with a professional, ask for a more enhanced version of yourself but be specific about event details. A bold eye isn’t the best move for a airey garden wedding and vice versa. On the big day, we recommend you stick to a more natural and romantic color palette (as well as plenty of waterproof mascara) to define your look.
  • Bring Inspiration: For hair and makeup, it’s great to bring along pictures to provide a sense of what you are looking for. From colors to tone, all of the aesthetic decisions that go into a wedding are what make an event feel pulled together and polished. You are no exception. We suggest you book a consultation and a trial run to ensure that you discover exactly the look you want to be remembered for!
  • Skincare Tips: Each person’s skin is unique and to feel confident before the big event, start planning about six to 12 months out how you will address your particular needs. Whether you need more moisture, to lift or tighten, or just want a glow, starting early can help you achieve that perfect complexion. Not to mention, eating healthy (a diet of low sugar and dairy can do wonders), is another critical step in helping you both look and feel your best.
  • Hair!: In the age of Pinterest, we receive many different (and a few impossible) requests. When it comes to hair, a trail run is definitely in order. Many brides come in to discuss cuts and colors in advance of their big day. Leading up to the wedding, setting on a particular style that matches your event can leave you feeling ready to go!
