4 Things to Do Before Saying “I do”

Your big day is coming soon and I assume you are both excited and nervous about how things may turn out. So here are some things to keep in mind while waiting “patiently” to hear those wedding bells.

  1. Be a bride, not Wonder Woman.

Those kind of brides who devote every waking hour to wedding planning, refusing any offer of help will eventually run out of energy when the big day comes. How do you avoid this fate? You only have to practice self-care. People always want to help so accept offers of help from your trustworthy people. Also, do whatever it takes to help you unwind. That could mean a day off at the movies, coffee shops, a good old massage, or just anything that reduces your stress.

  1. Stay in good terms with your bridesmaids.

Bridesmaids are there to support you while you take your vows, and act as witnesses to this special occasion. They gather around you and help you out on your big day. They are your support system. But some brides demand far more – they give “maid” a literal meaning, ordering countless errands and other stuff to the poor bridesmaids. Be sensitive and put yourself in their shoes – or should I say, heels. Kindness always sows kindness. Also, don’t forget to have some fun with each other. Have a pamper day, get your hair and nails done and relax.

  1. Choose a good and accessible destination

The church or the place of your wedding must easily be reached by your guests. This principle must also be followed in choosing the place of your reception. As much as possible, avoid brewing travel trouble for your guests. You wouldn’t want your wedding reception to be guestless, would you? Aside from the inconvenience, the wedding momentum will be put on hold. But if you can’t avoid these time gaps, provide transportation and a spot for guests to entertain them while they wait.

  1. Rehearse your wedding look and feel

Practice walking around in your shoes a few times before your wedding day. It is not easy to fake a glowing bride’s smile when your heels are killing you and giving you blisters. Remember, too, that your wedding is a once in a lifetime event and you may want to look at your wedding photos one day when all your kids are grown up. Solace Hair Sydney can take care of your look for you.

All these small tips would help you a lot during your wedding, but always keep in mind that the best thing to do in facing this new chapter in your life is to feel genuine happiness, and of course – love.

How to contour your face shape with hair colour- 2016 new hair colouring trend!

Forget makeup, hair contouring is the cleverest way to enhance your face shape
If dark colours can make an area look smaller and light shades can open up and widen a space, then you can create illusions to flatter your face shape with colours, not just on your face but your hair too.Hair colour contouring is a technique Art Team Director at Charles Worthington Marc Trinder has developed, and he let us in on the rules.
First you need to identify your face shape correctly. “Pull your hair back and behind your ears”, Marc advises, “then looking straight into the mirror ask a friend to draw the shape of your face as they see it” (wipeable pen is advisable!). If your ears are creating the illusion of more width cover them with your hands so you just focus on your face.Match up your sketching to these diagrams below and try Marc’s tips to enhance your specific shape.

 

HEART FACE SHAPE

To create a more oval face shape you want “lighter pieces woven around the
jawline and ears” – this softens the lower part of the face – and “fine light
tones with depth at the roots”, says Marc.
Whatever your face shape you also need to take into account your tone. “The wrong colour can make you look drawn and wishy-washy” Marc notes. As well as your hair colour, your skin and eye colours make up your depth and you should try to balance out your cool and warmth with colour.
In the Charles Worthington salons they will hold a ‘colour fan’ broken into cool and warm tones under your chin to see which shades make you look healthier. “If you put the right colour on someone they’re in focus – if not, it’s a bit blurry” Marc says. Try it with your clothes in front of the mirror.
Very generally speaking if you’re cooler toned you’d suit chocolate browns, creamy blondes or orangey reds. If you have a warmer skin tone you’d better suit chestnut browns, honey blondes and coppery reds.
So whether you want to brighten your complexion or balance your bone structure, hair colour could be your secret weapon.

OVAL FACE SHAPE

SQUARE FACE SHAPE

Marc explains that the oval face shape “is like the hourglass figure” – it’s seen as desirable because it’s very versatile. Most of you will suit anything, but he recommends talking to your colourist about bespoke colouring to add depth, texture or shine which will all make your features pop.
