Timing is all important when it comes to wedding planning, so we have provided you with a step-by-step guide to help with your preparations for the big day.
6 Months To Go – Wedding Hair Trial
Book a wedding hair trial at Blakes and bring in some pictures of the wedding hairstyles that you’d like to try so we can work with you to find a style that you love. We recommend that you bring in a picture of your dress too so that we can help you choose a bridal hairstyle that compliments your wedding dress. You could try a classic wedding updo or maybe a vintage bridal hairstyle to compliment your wedding theme, or perhaps an intricate plaited wedding hairstyle. We can also discuss how we can work with your wedding hair accessories such as a veil, tiara or flowers.
Now is the time to plan to get your hair into the best possible condition for the big day. Your stylist can help you with this and suggest a programme of hair treatments. If your hair is coloured, book a hair colour appointment now at our Canterbury hairdressing salon for a week before your wedding so that your colour looks vibrant and fresh on the day itself.
Remember to book your wedding day appointment now too so that you can secure that all important time slot.
4 Months To Go – Wedding Facials for Brides & Bridesmaids
Brides will want to ensure their skin looks flawless in the wedding photos, so it’s a good idea start your face care routine now. Book a Dermalogica Facial at Blakes Hair & Beauty Salon in Canterbury. Our highly trained team and recommend a tailor-made facial treatment for your skin’s needs.
3 Months To Go – Brow Shaping
Beautiful brows are highly fashionable at the moment and can frame your face and accentuate your features – so important when all eyes will be on you on the big day! You might want to consider visiting our brow professionals at Blakes beauty salon who will help you find a look that suits you with our HD Brows service.
1 Month To Go – Wedding Make Up Consultation
Why not take the stress out of your wedding preparations and put your bridal make up in the hands of our trained make up artists at Blakes? We will discuss the wedding look that you want to achieve and offer advice on colours and styles that will suit you and compliment your wedding theme. We also offer make-up lessons and can teach you the tricks of the trade should you wish to apply your own make-up on the big day.
2 Weeks Before – Hair Removal
Book an appointment with our professional hair removal service to ensure your legs, bikini line and underarms are silky smooth for your wedding day (and the honeymoon, of course)! If you are planning to wax any areas, we recommend that you have it done a minimum of two weeks before the wedding.
1 Week Before – Manicure and Pedicure
If you want lovely nails for your wedding, why not try our ORLY gel nails? They will give you glossy, chip-free nails for up to 21 days – so they’ll last right through your honeymoon too! You could also choose a manicure and pedicure with regular polish, but we recommend that you have this done the day before your wedding so that there’s a smaller chance of your nails chipping. We offer a great range of nail services in our Canterbury salon, including traditional white-tipped French nail polish.
1 Week Before – Lash Services
Lovely long lashes will accentuate your eyes, so you may wish to book in for professional lash extensions the week before your big day with our LVL Lashes service. If you have not had extensions before, we recommend that you trial these at least two months before the wedding so that you find out which length and style suits you, and your wedding make-up can be adapted for your lashes. However, for the big day we suggest that you have them applied a week before – they last 2 or 3 weeks which means you’ll still have lovely lashes for your honeymoon. Lash tinting services are also a great alternative if you don’t want to add extensions!
2 Days Before – Spray Tan
If you want to look sun kissed in your wedding gown, you may want to consider having a professional spray tan. At Blakes beauty salon in Canterbury we offer a top quality Fake Bake spray tanning service. Two days before is the perfect time to get this done because it allows the colour to become more natural and there will be no ‘just tanned’ smell!
