bridal beauty treatments liverpool

As a Liverpool wedding hair and makeup artist, I am often asked by my brides when is the best time to have their bridal beauty treatments done before the wedding. I have made a useful timeline of when to have bridal beauty treatments done in the run-up to your big day! I hope this will be a handy resource for you. Save the infographic below to print or pin with your other wedding planning information.

Bridal beauty treatments for 12 weeks before (or more!)

  • begin having facials every 4 weeks to make sure your skin is in great condition – I offer a course of Skintruth facials perfect for the run up to your wedding!
  • start using a hair mask suitable for your hair type once a week – I love the Lush ones and they can advise you on which one is best for you
  • start drinking at least 2 litres of water a day to hydrate from the inside out
  • Get into a good skincare routine morning and night to keep your skin looking its best

Bridal beauty treatments for 6-8 weeks before

Beauty treatments make a great gift for your wedding party! Give them gift vouchers for pre-wedding pampering to say thank you for being a part of your day.

Bridal beauty treatments for 1 week before

  • have your last facial before the wedding to help prevent any breakouts and give your skin a chance to settle before your wedding day
  • have a hair trim and your colour done

Bridal beauty treatments for 4 days before

  • get any body or facial waxing done (it removes the top layer of your dermis and makeup doesn’t apply well on freshly waxed skin) 
  • use your hair mask for the last time before your wedding day

Bridal beauty treatments for 2 days before

  • get your spray tan done 
  • have your nails and pedicure done after your tan to prevent staining
  • have your lashes done, whether semi-permanent or lash lift and tint

I offer a range of cruelty-free and vegan friendly beauty treatments in Kathryn Kavanagh Salon. Booking online is easy! Check it out and treat yourself to some pampering.

Bridal beauty treatments for the night before

  • get a massage to get rid of any tension – I love Holistic Healing Liverpool for her deep Swedish aromatherapy massages
  • use a hydrating face mask like this Drunk Elephant one to plump up your skin ready for your makeup the next morning – DO NOT try any new treatments, masks or exfoliators the night before your wedding!
  • get a wash and blow or wash and dry your hair at home, ready for styling, unless otherwise recommended by your hair stylist
  • Relax!!! Easier said than done, but set the scene. Light scented candles, listen to your favourite tunes, watch your favourite movie, have a bath. Just chill as much as possible

I hope this checklist is useful for you! Which bridal beauty treatments will be absolutely essential for your wedding day? Let me know in the comments!
