Helpful information to help prepare for a bridal hair and makeup trial.

Posted on Sep 11, 2013 in How To Prepare for Your Trial Session

Many of our brides have found this information helpful to prepare a successful hair and/or makeup trial. Here are some information and preparations to make the most of your bridal beauty trial session with us. ON-LOCATION SERVICES This means that will we come to you on site for the trial and your wedding day to get you and the bridal party ready.    VISUAL STYLE UNDERSTANDING There are so many bridal makeup inspirations and it can be interpreted in many levels and styles. To make sure we are on the same page about your style, we suggest collecting images (i.e. magazine pictures, photos, internet images saved into your phone) to show to us your desired bridal look. This will establish a clear communication as we use your ideas to inspire the perfect design for your dream bridal look. We may not necessarily design the exact look, however, having a visual helps us understand what you are comfortable with. These images can also be emailed. FACE Come with a clean, moisturized face. We recommend having your eyebrows groomed at least 2 days prior to the trial session to prevent any redness. Please let us know if you are allergic to any type of cosmetic product or ingredient. As an optional lash enhancement, we will use DUO latex glue to adhere the faux strip eye lashes. This adhesive can be removed with water and cleansing cream. All our cosmetic and skincare products are non-comedogenic and hypo allergenic which is safe for all skin type especially sensitive skin.   FOR MAKE-UP ONLY BRIDES It is a good idea to have your hair done & styled close to the wedding day style before coming. This would give you a better picture of the whole look when everything is completed. HAIR If you are having us do your hair trial, please have clean, dry hair (blow dry or naturally dried). For a seamless style and more workable hair, please have your hair product-free. Please let us know if you are allergic to any type of hair product or ingredient.   CLOTHING We recommend wearing a white or cream colored top, (example white / ivory tank-top, tube/strapless top) or a color that is close to the color of your gown. Doing so will give you an overall visual feel for the hair and make-up colors when viewing at on a full scale against the color of your gown. SERVICES FOR BRIDAL ATTENDEES Additional trial sessions for the bride and other parties are available up on request for an additional cost. Please feel free to ask any questions about the arrangements or package rates.   TIMING Please give yourself an appropriate amount of time for the entire Session experience. Depending on your style, each session will vary. Make-up – 30 to 60 minutes Hair – 30 – 60 minutes   PAYMENT DETAILS We accept all major credit cards, PayPal and Cash.

Wedding Makeup & Hair – Ngoc’s Big Day

Posted on Mar 18, 2013 in Blog Posts

We had the pleasure of dolling up our SweetSouthernGlam Bride, Ngoc Phan on her big day.  Ngoc Phan is a bridal florist here in Charlotte so I was super excited to be a part of her wedding. You know she was going to have some awesome floral design! Rise and shine! Aura and I started bright and early for makeup and hair at 8am to get our bride ready for the traditional Vietnamese ceremony.  Ngoc knew the exact bridal look she wanted for us to create for her. She wanted smokey eyes and her hair up and pulled back away from her face. I love getting the chance to do a smokey look for my brides, instead of a natural look. Both are gorgeous! It just depends on the bride’s personal style and personality. Ngoc started her big day early until the night reception with her makeup and hair lasting over 12 hours. Here are before/after photos from Ngoc’s bridal consultation: Stay beautiful! ♥ Jenny...
