Your guests will scrutinize your wedding dress, as well your hairstyle and makeup. No to worry! We’ve got all the pro bridal beauty tips you will need to look fabulous on your wedding day.

Let’s focus on skin care first. How your skin looks on your wedding day is a result of taking care of your skin at least three to four months before your wedding day. Start to take good care of your skin now so you have a perfect complexion on your wedding day.

For flawless skin, choose a cleanser and moisturizer appropriate for your skin type that you can use in the morning and evening and then supplement it weekly with a purifying face mask. You should also consider using a nightly skin treatment that exfoliates dead skin cells.

For skin blemishes we recommend Pâte Grise from Dr. Payot. Pâte Grise has been the benchmark for flawless skin for 3 generations! This secret formula by Dr. Payot works while you sleep to accelerate the maturation of minor sub- cutaneous spots and make them disappear by the very next morning! Calming sweet almond relieves the skin and locally soothes sensitized areas. The double shale extract regulates sebaceous secretions and encourages the disappearance of regular blemishes spots. You will want to apply Pâte Grise to imperfections every evening after cleansing and toning to heal blemishes and maintain a healthy flawless skin.

Next, consider hair color and style. If you are thinking of experimenting with a new hair color or a haircut, try to make any major change at least 4 months before your big day.

If you want a sophisticated updo for your wedding, we recommend letting your hair grow for five to six months before your wedding day. The ideal hair length depends on the hairstyle chosen. Even for a bun for example, hair length doesn’t need to be in the middle of the back. Details make the difference on your special day, such as an added bun hair piece, or adding braid to the side to keep the hair in place. It’s important that the hairstyle is kept elegant and exudes simplicity.

There are plenty of possibilities for short hair like adding clip-on hair extensions, a false bun, or hair ornaments. What’s important is to have beautiful hair that is healthy and shiny. Hair accessories must add elegance but with simplicity. You can use them if they are necessary to hold hair in place such as a barrett instead of traditional wedding hair jewelry. Another option is to work with hair-like braids which can dress the hair like a jewel.

Whether you prefer a hairstyle that is romantic, retro, modern, classic, bohemian, high fashion or edgy, you need to select the hairstyle that will look best on you. Between the chic chignon and loose hair you may find yourself unsure of what is best for you. Take a look at new fashion trends from the Oscars to the runways and also check our gallery of beautiful bridal hairstyles.

Chignons are one of the most popular wedding hairstyles and often selected because of their elegance and femininity. Brides with long hair have a multitude of choices and their hairstyle is easily adjusted — their hair can be worn with loose curls, smooth, waves, braided hairstyles or many choices of chignons.

Do you have curly frizzy hair and aren’t sure how to style your hair on your wedding day? Whether you choose to straighten or leave your hair natural, you do have many choices. Braids are the perfect base for a successful bridal hairstyle. They can be chic and classic or rather edgy as well. During your consultation your bridal hairstylist will be able to recommend the perfect hairstyling look for you.

Last but not least, do not overlook your makeup when preparing for your wedding day. It’s important to have your makeup professionally done by a makeup artist on your special day – your everyday makeup is not optimum for your wedding day.

Two months prior to your wedding, it is time to book a trial run with your bridal hairstylist and makeup artist. Make your appointment early in the day so that you can see how long the hairstyle and makeup lasts. Take plenty of pictures so you can see how your look transfers to film and so your bridal hairstylist and makeup artist can re-create or adjust accordingly on your wedding day.
