Preparing Your Skin and Hair for Your Wedding Day with Diva Me Bella

As your wedding day approaches, the desire to look absolutely stunning while walking down the aisle becomes a paramount focus. Achieving a flawless hair and makeup look on your special day requires diligent preparation of your skin and hair. Makeup can enhance your features, but the foundation for a perfect look begins with well-prepped skin and hair. It's important to understand that while makeup can work wonders, it may not entirely conceal certain textures or fine lines. Therefore, creating an optimal canvas is crucial in achieving the desired look. To help you prepare for your big day, we offer a comprehensive guide that includes Diva Me Bella's recommendations.

Diva Me Bella's Recommendations for Your Big Day:

Start with a Clean Slate: Arrive with one-day-old (oil-free) hair and a fresh, makeup-free face to provide our team with the perfect canvas to work their magic. We recommend applying mousse to your freshly washed hair and allowing it to air dry or following the instructions given to you at the trial. This helps to create natural volume and texture, providing a perfect base for your bridal hairstyle. If our team is installing your real hair clip-in extensions, please ensure they are prepped and ready to go. Read our article on prepping clip-in extensions here. This ensures your hair and makeup stay flawless throughout the festivities.

2-3 Hair and Makeup Inspirational Pictures: Make sure everyone brings along 2-3 inspirational pictures of their desired hair and makeup looks. These visuals help us understand the vision and tailor our services to reflect their unique style and preferences. We will customize these looks to fit their hair length/texture and facial attributes.

Payment Made Simple: To streamline the process, we kindly ask that one designated person handle any remaining balance or collect payment on behalf of your party. Our payment procedures are designed to be hassle-free, with payment typically due after services are rendered, and gratuity, if included, warmly appreciated and not subject to a transaction fee.

Avoid New Treatments/Products: As your wedding day approaches, it's important to avoid trying out new products to prevent any unwanted surprises. Stick to your trusted beauty routine to ensure you look and feel your absolute best on your special day.

Spray Tan Timing: If you're considering a spray tan for a sun-kissed glow, schedule it at least 3 days prior to your wedding day. This allows the color to settle evenly and ensures a natural-looking tan. Additionally, aim to have at least 2 showers before your wedding day to prevent any color transfer onto your dress as you dance the night away.

Schedule Trials at Least 30-60 days in Advance: Start by booking consultations and trials with your dedicated hair and makeup artists. These sessions allow you to communicate your vision and preferences, as well as for our experts to assess your skin and hair condition. Use this time to discuss any concerns, allergies, or sensitivities, and fine-tune your ideal wedding day look.

Establish a Skincare Routine: Begin a consistent skincare routine months before the wedding day. Cleanse your skin twice daily, moisturize, and use sunscreen to protect from harmful UV rays. Consider incorporating exfoliation and masks to maintain a healthy glow. Consult with your hair and makeup artists for specific skincare recommendations based on your skin type and concerns.

Hydrate and Nourish: Maintain hydration by drinking plenty of water to improve your skin's overall appearance. Water is essential for healthy skin as it hydrates skin cells, improves circulation, flushes out toxins, and promotes a radiant complexion. Adequate hydration can also reduce dryness, flakiness, and fine lines. A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats provides essential nutrients for your skin and hair. For personalized nutritional guidance, consult with a nutritionist or dietitian.

Professional Treatments: Consider scheduling professional treatments with a dermatologist or esthetician leading up to your wedding day. Facials, chemical peels, Botox and microdermabrasion can address specific skin concerns and enhance your complexion. However, ensure you undergo any treatments well in advance to allow time for any potential side effects to subside.

Hair Care Routine: Follow a consistent hair care routine to maintain healthy and lustrous locks. Regularly shampoo and condition your hair using products suitable for your hair type. Apply deep conditioning treatments to nourish and strengthen your hair. Avoid excessive heat styling or chemical treatments close to the wedding day to prevent damage.

Follow Professional Recommendations: Your hair and makeup artists are experts in their field. Listen to their recommendations and advice. They may suggest certain skincare products, hair treatments, or lifestyle changes that can improve the condition of your skin and hair. Collaborate with them to achieve the best results.

Be Consistent: Consistency is crucial when preparing your skin and hair for your wedding day. Stick to your skincare routine, hair care routine, and any recommended treatments or products. Avoid making any drastic changes too close to the wedding day that could potentially cause adverse reactions or unexpected results.

By working closely with your hair and makeup artists, following a proper skincare and hair care routine, and being consistent with treatments and recommendations, you can ensure that your skin and hair are in the best possible condition for your wedding day. This collaborative effort will help you bring to life the breathtaking bridal look you've always envisioned.
