6 Months Before – Wedding Hair Trial for Brides

Book a wedding hair trial at Gary Pellicci Hairdressing Salon in Ongar, Essex and we’ll provide you with some stunning wedding hair ideas and help you find a style that you love.  Bring in some pictures of your favourite styles and a photo of your wedding dress, and we can help you choose a bridal style that compliments it.  You could try a classic wedding upstyle, a vintage bridal hairstyle or perhaps even some intricate braids or a gorgeous bridal look for short hair.  We know that accessories can have a special significance on your big day so our team of expert stylists will work with you to incorporate wedding hair accessories such as a veil, tiara or flowers into your look.

To ensure your hair is glowingly healthy for your wedding day, our stylists can also help you to plan a programme of hair treatments.  If your hair is coloured, you can book in now for a hair colour appointment at our Ongar hair salon a week before your wedding so that your colour will look fresh and vibrant for the big day.

Remember to book in your wedding hair appointment now too so that you can secure the perfect time slot.

4 Months Before – Wedding Facials for Brides

It’s important to start a face care routine now that will leave your skin looking flawless and glowing in those wedding photos!  Book into your local beauty salon for their best facials.

3 Months Before – Brow Services 

Beautiful brows are highly fashionable at the moment – they frame your face and accentuate your features, which is even more important when all eyes are on you!  You might want to visit a brow professional who can assess your natural brows along with your face shape and help you to find the brow shape that’s best for you.

1 Month Before – Wedding Make-Up Trial

If you aren’t certain that your make-up skills aren’t up to creating the special look you are dreaming of for your wedding day, why not make a booking with one of our trained make-up artists instead?  In an initial consultation, we will discuss the options and can offer advice on colours and styles.  We can also carry out a practice run to ensure you will be happy with the look for your big day.  Find out more about our bridal make-up services here.

2 Weeks Before – Hair Removal 

Make sure that you skin is silky-smooth for your wedding day (and your honeymoon, of course)!  If you are planning to wax any areas, we recommend that you get this done at least two weeks in advance of the big day.

1 Week Before – Manicure & Pedicure 

It’s important that your hands are looking their best as the ring is slipped onto your finger, so ensure that you plan your nail treatments.  For lovely long nails why not try nail extensions?  These last for up to three weeks which means they will stay beautiful for your honeymoon!  You could also try gel nail polish, which also remains gorgeously glossy for up to three weeks.

1 Week Before – Lash Services 

Perfect lashes look beautiful and will accentuate your eyes, so you may want to book in for professional extensions the week before your big day.  We suggest that you trial these at least two month before your wedding so that you know how they will suit you and how you can adapt your wedding make-up to compliment your lashes.  Speak to your local beauty salon to find out more about extensions and other options such as lash tinting.

2 Days Before – Spray Tan 

For a golden, sun-kissed look in your wedding dress, consider having a professional spray tan.  Two days before the wedding is the perfect time to get this done because it allows the colour to fade and become more natural, and there will be no “just tanned” smell.
