Next Level Color Tips For The Bride To Be

Now’s the time to take your color next level!  Whether you’re an ambitious blonde, a sassy red head or a blushing brunette you deserve to look insanely beautiful on your wedding day beginning with your perfect color.

Now isn’t the time for anything drastic, after-all twenty years from now you’ll want to recognize that gorgeous bride in the photos, you on your most beautiful day.  If you don’t already color your hair regularly and your wedding day is relatively close now may not be the time to start.  To amp up your natural color opt for a clear gloss shine, it won’t change your color but will give you salon fresh shine and dramatically improve texture and smoothness without damaging your hair.

Now if you are one that is comfortable with color and have a regular colorist start planning your color as soon as possible or at a minimum four to six months out.  If you don’t have a regular colorist that knows you and your hair well the search can be daunting so don’t rest on your laurels and risk a last minute decision start looking for one as early as possible and don’t be afraid to ask for a referral from a friend or colleague that regularly colors their hair.  

If you plan to wear extensions for your wedding day then be sure to let your colorist know and bring he/she a sample if possible to ensure that the color flows with your planned hair style.

Be very direct and honest with your colorist when conveying your vision.  Bring photos for inspiration and don’t go for anything too trendy unless it’s something you already do regularly. 

The recommended timeline for color application depends on the level of drama you’re seeking.  We find that most brides seek to go lighter and softer with their wedding day color so if you’re a brunette looking to go blonde plan on about a six month process and at least four salon visits.

For routine color plan on having your color touched up about two weeks out giving your tresses time to settle and look more natural, this also allows you time for any touch ups prior to your “I Do’s”.  Brides that need grey coverage should plan their final color about three days out.

For  highlights plan seven to ten days out and focus on three key areas: face frame, crown, and ends, sticking to three to five shades lighter or darker than your natural color will give you a great natural glowing flow of color.

Lastly, take care of your color and follow your colorists advice to the letter.  Protect your hair from the sun with a hat or scarf and NO SWIMMING especially in chlorinated water, especially if you’re a blonde.  Invest in quality product to protect your color, after all of the time and money you’ve invested in achieving your dream color now is not the time to go drugstore cheap.

Exceeded Expectations
Meg, the owner of Makeup in the 702, and both the hair and makeup stylist were absolutely incredible on the day of my wedding and the makeup trial! In the beginning, Meg answered all of my questions and went above and beyond to make sure I was prepared and ready for my big day! In the months to come, she kept in touch just to check in to see how things were going and ensure everything was still in plan on their end. We had several changes to our order with ladies wanting to add addition services, Meg would answer and send an updated proposal in less than 24 hours. The stylist met me in my hotel and were earlier than expected. They were extremely professional, courteous, and created my perfect look. Everyone who received their services were more than impressed and could not believe how well their looks turned out. I call myself a perfectionist and am very peculiar about my looks but would trust these girls over and over again. I HIGHLY recommend this group of stylist to anyone who wants to take their hands off the wheel and be rest assured one of the most important aspects of their day is completely covered. Thank you ladies!!!
