Here is our guide to creating the best wedding hair, and a few of our favourite wedding hair looks this season…
THINGS TO CONSIDER
12 months to go…
HAIR COLOUR AND HAIR CUT– You need to give yourself plenty of time for any radical changes such as growing your hair longer and possibly trying a slightly different colour.
GETTING HAIR INTO A BETTER SHAPE – We need to take care of any hair problems from pumping up the volume in limp or super fine hair to taming unruly frizz and fly aways, or a simple trim of dry ends. Let our team take an in depth look at your hair and prescribe relevant products and treatments.
EYE SCHOOL – Nothing frames a face better than a set of perfectly groomed brows and lashes. It’s always a good idea to trial lashes, we need to make sure they’re the right length, thickness and curl. Most people need to allow up to seven months to retrain their brows if they have over plucked them, so it’s important to get your plan of action started now. A good shape opens the eye, lifts the face and balances your features. We also recommend an expert in Semi-Permanent Make Up Emily Coverdale 07545780308 – ideal for those people who have fine or non-existent brows, or would just like a beautiful classic eye liner permanently in place.
HAIR REMOVAL – Throwing new light on the age-old problem of hair removal our therapists can remove unwanted body hair with extremely effective results. Getting you ready for the big day and your honeymoon.
FACIALS – Let’s face it, good skin doesn’t happen overnight and so our beauty experts begin with an in-depth skin consultation who will analyse your complexion and prescribe a series of monthly facials to get it looking flawless for the big day. Whatever your concern from acne to fine lines or dry, dull skin, our therapists can fix it.
MAKE UP – If you’re not planning to follow in Kate Middleton’s footsteps and do your own make-up on the day, we can recommend excellent artists whom we’ve tried and tested.
ENGLISH ROSE OR GOLDEN BROWN – Trial a fake tan, one of our therapists will blend the perfect colour whether you prefer a beautiful golden glow, or something entirely natural – you choose how bronzed you want to be.
9 months to go…
REHEARSAL HAIR – Your big day is getting closer, it’s now time to trial your wedding hairstyle with your stylist. Bring any wedding hair accessories to your appointment. Hair and make-up trials generally last one hour each. We can offer as many hair and make-up trials as you want but they will be charged at an hourly rate. We advise washing and drying your hair the morning of the trial – this allows the stylist to use the appointment time fully creating your proposed look. We offer the option of Hair Extensions – if you’ve not been able to grow your hair, or just need an extra bit of length or volume, let us add natural, glossy, beautiful hair for ultimate in fullness and body. Let us know if you would like a change of look for the evening of your wedding as we will factor this into your hair and make-up trials to create two different looks for you.
6 months to go…
PARTY TIME! – Why don’t you and your friends come for a pre-hen party pampering session at our Leeds centre spa. No matter how big your party is, we have stylists ready to create their magic and nail technicians to add some glamour. Enjoy a glass of fizz(or two!), whilst being taken off by our team of experts. You’ll start your hen looking as you mean to go on…glamorous, polished and hot to trot.
HAD THE PARTY, NOW HERE’S THE CURE – As the hen and stag party is a hazy memory, the inevitable hangover takes over. Let us take the sting out of the morning after and come in for a detoxifying massage and a rehydrating facial to turn that sallow skin into a healthy glow.
DONT FORGET YOUR BRIDESMAIDS AND YOUR PARENTS – Our team team needs to co-ordinate the look for your supporting cast. Treat the parents to some pampering and grooming with our hair and beauty team.
LETS NOT FORGET THE GROOM – It’s not all about the brides…at Russell Eaton we offer a full range of services that covers all aspects of male grooming. A great hair cut goes without saying, but what about glowing skin, tidy brows and neat nails. As specialists on waxing and threading we can keep all areas looking good or book a bespoke facial with our facial experts. Why not then follow it on with a relaxing and de-stressing full body massage and pedicure.
THE FINAL PREP – Two weeks before the big day come in for your final haircut and colour. Highlights must be done 7/10 days prior to the wedding so it’s fresh looking, yet it gives the hair time to settle in and make any tweaks. Hair extensions need to be done 10 days before the big day and straight after any colour has been applied so the extensions can settle.
NAIL IT – With a mani and pedi with our expert nail technicians Let our girls get creative and mix up a bespoke nail polish to compliment your dress and shoes or make over your hand and feet with a 2 week varnish manicure, (which includes French manicures), exceptionally durable and chip resistant they are excellent for beach bound honeymoons.
THE BIG DAY – Whether you’re planning to say ‘I do’ on a far flung desert island or at home in your garden, our team will arrive at your wedding destination in plenty of time to primp and preen you to perfection… thanks to months of careful grooming, the only hitch we anticipate today is to your betrothed!
WEDDING PACKAGE COSTS
OPTION1 / IN THE SALON – we are able to accommodate the bride and bridal party for all aspects of hair and grooming. Brides hair starts from £60 per hour. Other members of the bridal party are charged at our regular rate depending on their requirements. Blow dries start at £25, hair up starts at £40.
OPTION2 / ON LOCATION – Our team of stylists are happy to travel to any venue. We charge an hourly rate (see wedding stylists for individual prices) for our stylists to go to your chosen location. This is charged from when they leave the salon or home if an early booking, to when they return to the salon, plus any other expenses incurred i.e travel.
FULL DAY – When we have to travel further afield or if there is more than the bride to accommodate, it can be more cost effective for you to book a day rate rather than an hourly rate. The stylist arrives at the pre-arranged time to create your wedding hair, this includes any other members of your bridal party as agreed prior to the day. They are then on hand to maintain your hair throughout the day for photographs or a change of style.
PRE-WEDDING HAIR TRIALS – Ideally with the stylist who will be booked for your wedding. The appointments are up to an hour and are from £60. We advise washing and drying your hair on the morning of the trial, this allows the stylist to use the appointment time fully for creating your wedding look, or different looks that you would like to try. Don’t forget to bring your camera in case you want to take some pictures to show your friends and family.
WEDDING AND PRE-WEDDING MAKE UP TRIALS – We offer wedding make-up in salon that will perfect and complete your look, or if it’s recommendations on the best make up artists to visit your home or venue you need we have two wedding make-up specialists that Russell Eaton highly recommend…
