Top tips to achieving a glamourous prom or wedding look

With the prom and summer wedding season just around the corner, you want to look your best but we know how time-consuming and sometimes overwhelming planning for a special occasion. Never fear though Vito Hair and Beauty, Victorian Arcade's independent beauty salon, has come up with a variety of handy hints and tips to ensure your day is stress free and an occasion to remember for all the right reasons!

Find a salon you can trust

When it comes to those all-important occasions in life, you don't want to be worrying about your hair. The best way to ensure you will be completely satisfied with your look is by doing your research. Choose five salons in your area and search the reviews clients have given them. Are people generally happy with the service? Do they offer everything you need? If the answer is yes, check out the packages they have available and be certain they are the best salon for you.

Show and tell

On the day of your appointment, bring anything with you that you think will help the stylist understand the desired look you want to achieve. Search through magazines and online blogs to gain inspiration, create a Pinterest board or make your own hard copy mood board, and if you've already picked your outfit, have a friend take a photo of you wearing it so you can show your stylist what it looks like.

Embrace your natural hair texture

We've all had bad hair days and some of us just can't stand our natural hair style and will do anything to change it. Vito Hair and Beauty recommend working with your natural texture; curly hair looks fabulous up or down, straight hair can be wound into ornate updos, while wavy hair is the perfect texture for half up half down styles. The experts at your salon will be able to advise and offer suggestions as to what style will suit you best with your chosen outfit.

It's not just about hair

The condition of your skin and in fact your general well-being is just as important as having perfect hair for your special occasion.

From soothing facial treatments to drinking a lot of water, we all know the most common treatments and diet advice. Follow these natural and cheap simple steps to help ensure you have a clear face and radiant glow on the big day:

  1. Egg yolk – contains natural cleansing properties. Using this as a gentle cleanser will help contribute to the toning of your skin
  2. Pineapple – sliced pineapple is great to rub over your face and T-Zone as it provides skin with a glow and has been known to reduce the signs of ageing
  3. Honey – Honey works as a natural hydrant. It removes dirt from your face, while providing your skin with added nutrients. Why not warm it up slightly to use as a facemask or apply with a cotton mitt to give your face the glow and shine it deserves.
  4. Sugar– sugar is a very good natural exfoliant. It cleanses the skin and helps it to shine by getting rid of old skin cells

As well as following these tips, ensuring you get enough sleep and drink plenty of water in the lead up to the event will help you look and feel your best on the big day.

The team at Vito Hair and Beauty is happy to offer expert advice for the first and final stages of planning your look for all your special occasion. Simply arrange an appointment in store or call them today on 01922 641123 for further information.
