How to Prepare for Your Wedding Like a Royalty
This week, Royal Wedding spectators will take notes about every part of Meghan Markle’s skin, hair, nails, and just about every move she will make. Her makeup, her hair and her appearance will most likely set a trend for this summer and beyond. If you are planning to get married soon (or ever really) this is the time to get out your notepad and pay attention to the details. Knowingly or unknowingly many of us (probably most of us!) will compare ourselves to the beauty of Royal Bride. Here are some tips to help you prepare for YOUR wedding like a Royal:
For brides-to-be a glowing and clear skin is the ultimate wedding day essential. Markle’s facial therapist Nicola Joss advises you should be "seeing your facialist every two weeks to get your skin in the best condition you can." There are two key reasons to get a pro skin specialist at your side early on: One, they can assess your face complexion’s current state much better than you; Two, they can help you devise a strategy for achieving your glowing skin goals – be it softening the wrinkles or eliminating acne. For most of us (with exception of some lucky ones) to get a perfect skin, treatments can take up to several months and you definitely want to plan it as early as possible for the best result.

EYES, LASHES & BROWS
An eyebrow shape or lash extensions can make a huge difference in the way you look. While your brows help to frame your face, beautiful long and striking eyelashes can bring out the beauty of your eyes. One of the latest trends in beauty industry is the Lash Lift and Tint technique, which is designed to give you longer looking natural lashes without the need for lash extensions. The treatment itself takes only about 45 to 60 minutes after which your lashes will look simply magical! Check out all our eye treatments here.
There is nothing like perfectly manicured nails to make you feel groomed and ready for the big day. Once you’ve experimented with the perfect colours and styles that fit you, opt for a CND Shellac Manicure treatment a few days before, or if you don’t want any fancy gels you can choose one of many other options that will give your nails a look of the century! And, even if your big day is FAR far away or it’s already done and dusted, nail services are a fantastic way of spending quality time for yourself making sure you bring out your beauty in a polished manner.
You will probably get more pictures taken of you in a day than in the upcoming year combined (unless you are super famous), so better make sure that nothing gets missed out. Our salon offers back facial, which is a deep cleansing treatment for backs. Why you do you need it? If you have a dress with an open back, you want your back to look spectacular and absolutely perfect, especially when walking down the aisle.
Another popular treatment for your body is a spray tan, it takes only 15 minutes to do, but the results are instant and amazing. Your skin will look tan and healthy, admired by the spectators and embedded in pictures forever.
After all the prepping massage will make your body relaxed and relieve any unwelcome tension, leaving you soothed, rejuvenated and freshly prepared for the big day. Massage is also recommended by Markle’s facialist Nicola Joss, who says "You want to start getting regular massages from the beginning of your skincare journey, since it not only helps remove the tension in the face, but it also really helps improve the texture when you massage with a good, clean facial oil."
