The Ultimate Bridal Beauty Timeline

Saying ‘I do” to a well-planned beauty routine is the first step to a head-turning walk down the aisle.

We will show you what steps to take to the lead up to the wedding day.

1. Make a dermatologist appointment for both right now and the day before your wedding.

2. Book a brow-grooming appointment. Going from caterpillars to arches takes time. Throw out your tweezers and schedule regular trips to a professional. Any tinting should be done now, not before the wedding day.

3. Meet with a personal trainer and a nutritionist. Or join a gym, now is the time to get your body in shape.

4. Schedule your initial hair and makeup consultations. Bring pictures of your dress, accessories, veil, even a swatch of fabric if you have one, and as many inspiration images from Pinterest as possible. You can never pull enough reference images, ever.

5. Fine-tune your cut and color. This is not the time for an impulse bob. Keep it simple and natural, and if you’re trying to grow out bangs or layers, ask the stylist to lighten the ends, then keep your hands off. Also don’t forget to ask for a deep conditioning mask.
