Trial Run

For both hair and makeup, you’re going to want to trial how your look is going to be. Many stylists will offer a trial run so that they can walk you through the best products for your day. If you’re a bride or if you have a very particular look that you want to match your outfit you can always do a trial run of your hair and makeup before going to a dress fitting. This gives you a great idea of what the full picture is going to look like. You might love the hair in the morning but by the afternoon when you see it with the dress, you may realize that the look does not match and you can experiment with other looks.

Talk to a makeup artist about the colors that suit your complexion. If you are having your makeup professionally done then they will be great guides for this. If you are taking on the task of makeup yourself you can talk to the staff at beauty stores such as Sephora or in the makeup stands in department stores. They will be able to assist you and recommend colors that match your tone.


Hair for so many is such an important part of their identity. Deciding how to have it on your can be a challenge especially if you have something in mind but don’t quite have the right hair texture for it. Speak with your hair stylist beforehand.

Bridal hair stylist extraordinaire, Madison ig:@madisoncate gave us some solid advice as to how to take care and prep your hair to ensure it is in its prime condition for your big day… or any day!!

“Your hair care should be treated like your skin care! There are products to use for everything! Shampoo and conditioner are the bare minimum like face wash and moisturizer. Learn how to use heat protectants, hair masks, oils and leave-ins. I promise your hair will thank you long term and you’ll see a huge difference!” 


With so many beautiful nail styles to pick from, it’s easy to get carried away. Think about how you need to function on the day. Leaving getting the manicure done to as close as the date as possible is a great way to ensure that you don’t chip or break a nail. A mani-pedi is also a great way to decompress in the lead-up to your event! Let yourself be pampered and have fun!
