Has the wedding planning been a little crazy lately? Don’t fret. It usually gets like that near the finale. But that’s not to say you should just take it as is and not avail some of the best spa services in town!

Book a rejuvenating session with one of our salon spas and get ready for a day of pampering and relaxation. It will not only get rid of you all knots and tension that you are holding in your body but will also improve your blood circulation, giving you that coveted glow that’s the hallmark of a dazzling bride.

Some of the most popular massages to consider include Swedish massage, aromatherapy massage, and hot stone massage. If you are looking for something extra, though, talk to our spa specialist and discuss your options.

A word of advice: Don’t try anything wild so close to the big day. Go for something tried and tested and enjoy your wedding day without feeling anything less than your best self.

2. Facials and Other Skin Treatments


We advise our brides to indulge in regular skincare in the months leading up to the big day. A plump, clean, and gorgeous skin provides the best base and canvas for the bridal makeup to stay, hold, and shine.

That said, there are facial services and skin treatments that are a must-have for the wedding day itself to ensure a confidence-boosting glow. Think of full-body exfoliation and a great Hydra facial. Avoid peels closer to the big day to avoid redness, puffiness, or any allergic reactions.

When you’re choosing your skin treatment or facial, stick with something that you know. If you have got specific skin concerns, talk to your esthetician a week prior, so they can devise a custom treatment for you that not only addresses your concerns but also gives you the loved-skin appearance you are looking for.

3. Manicure and Pedicure

Your hands are going to be the focus of attention as everyone would clamor to look at your ring!

Ensure flawless nails and supple hands by getting a bridal manicure at one of our expert nail salons. Depending on the kind of manicure/pedicure you want to get, you might be looking for more than one appointment for the desired look. Long nails, for example, with the gel manicure, would need more than one session to stay polished and perfect.

In any case, schedule your nail appointment at least a day or two in advance so the manicures stay on perfectly and don’t chip. Also, make sure that your nail appointment is the last bridal treatment you take before hair and makeup for the best nail care.

4. Eyebrow Shaping

Eyebrows frame our faces. Perfectly-shaped eyebrows help enhance the natural structure of the face, highlight facial bones, and give an overall cleaner and more polished look.

Though large and bushy eyebrows are in these days, they look too dramatic. If you want a classic, boho, or dreamy bridal look, avoid anything sharp or harsh. Shape your eyebrows with a lighter hand so you have room for any last touches.

Like with most bridal services we have listed above, go with eyebrow shaping a few days in advance. At least a week. If you are a brow virgin, start going to a brow expert at least 3 months prior. Regular sessions will ensure that by the time your wedding day arrives, your brows are in perfect shape. A little tidying session a day before will ensure that any redness will dissipate and your face will be ready for its eye makeup.

5. Bridal Hairstyling

Your hair is going to your crowning glory on your wedding day. No matter the length or texture of your hair, a complimentary hairstyle that matches the shape of your face, your style, and your gown is going to be significant.

We recommend multiple discussions with your hairstylist before the big day. Things to cover would include your personal choices, the season you’re in, the climate, and the overall theme of the wedding.

Winter hairstyles for brides vary greatly from summer looks. The climate also plays a role. In a humid climate or setting, like around a beach, you may want a loose updo to ensure your hair doesn’t get messed up in the wind.

If you’re getting married indoors, your choices may be more versatile.

A word of advice: Wash your hair a day before your wedding day and do not put any products in it. Washing it on the day of may leave your hair wet, frizzy, or otherwise unmanageable for your chosen hairstyle.

6. Professional Makeup

Investing in a professional makeup artist can be the difference between makeup that stays on even after a serious round of dancing, and one that starts running off the moment you step out of the AC.

A professional makeup artist will use advanced techniques, high-quality products, and a seasoned eye to ensure you get a makeup look that complements your entire look and theme. If you’re eyeing a particular beauty trend for your big day, a professional makeup artist can help you customize it to fit your wedding style.

The expert touch will also keep your makeup smudge and tear-proof, making it last long, and survive bear hugs, unruly veils, and emotional moments.

Since professional bridal makeup from a salon can be a bit expensive, invest in a trial run. Create a mood board in collaboration with your MUA and see how closely the trial run matches with it. Pay some attention to your own energy vibing with the artist. See if you both are on the same frequency. If there’s good mutual understanding, any last-minute rushes or emergencies can handle much more amicably and with more success.

The Takeaway

Brilliant bridal makeup and a gorgeous wedding hair day are going to play major roles in making you feel like a million dollars on your big day. But good skin and a clean, relaxed body will serve as the perfect canvas to create the final bridal look that’ll stop people in their tracks.

If that sounds like something you’d want on your wedding day, you know what to do. Call our Select Salon artists today and book your bridal services at your earliest!
