Confirm all appointments for the big day such as your hairstylist, make up artist, photographer, florist, and car hire etc especially if you are staying in a hotel/resort.
One Week Before
Does anyone need a colour? This is the time to organise your final colour application at Angela’s Mane Attraction. If you have chosen an ‘up’ style ensure that the back is properly coloured. With a hairstyle with a parting the colour applied must be focused on this area especially where foils are concerned. We do not recommend doing any drastic changes in colour or cut at this stage. It is too late as a big change will affect the suitability of your dress, colour scheme, make-up and even your partner to be!
Have your eyebrows reshaped and all you’re other waxing done, eyelash and eyebrow tints at Angela’s Mane Attraction.
Have a dress rehearsal just to check zippers and bra straps are comfortable with no surprise last-minute alterations.
The Day Before
Make sure the whole bridal party washes their hair well and to shampoo twice if necessary unless your hairstylist at Angela’s Mane Attraction gives you other advice. For baby fine, oily or limp hair please give your scalp a good brush and shampoo twice then just leave it, don’t condition it! Your hair will be stronger and easier to style if you can avoid washing it on the wedding day.
If anyone is having their hair blow-dried you are required to wash your hair on the day.
Plan to go to bed early, consider a relaxing bubble bath and herbal tea to give you a good nights rest. If you are tired it can affect your skin, eyes and sense of humour.
Pack your emergency kit!
