Planning a wedding requires millions of decisions, arrangements and adjustments — from finding the perfect dress, to selecting the hair and makeup. Brides lust for a look that all their guests will remember and stay-all-day hair and makeup should be the least of her worries. Since every Posh Salon stylist attends ongoing education and classes to be on top of new trends and techniques, they’re easily able to recreate the latest and most popular styles that won’t wear off. Owner Lisa Martin-Campbell shares her tips to prep, perfect, and prolong your bridal look, here:
“A healthy skin care routine should already be in place weeks before the wedding date,” says Martin-Campbell. Posh Salon recommends Dermalogica, a skin care line that caters to all skin types and corrects issues such as acne, premature aging, fine lines, dark circles under the eyes, dry skin, oily skin, and sensitive skin. Shiny, healthy hair begins before the big day, too, and she recommends using Kérastase products to transform hair into its best possible shape. “Even hair damaged from over processing or heat can make its way back to life with the amazing Thérapiste regimen,” she says.
Posh makeup artists are trained to highlight and contour using Mirabella makeup. The salon-exclusive brand features illuminating highlighters, skin perfecting tinted crèmes, weightless concealers, sun-kissed bronzers, moisturizing velvet lip pencils, high pigmented eye shadows and blushes, ten-hour wear lipsticks, and luxe glosses to complete any and every type of desired look. “When paired with the Dermalogica Skin Perfect Primer and finished with the Model in a Bottle Make-Up Setting Spray, make-up is sure to last all day and night, looking flawless and fresh in pictures from start to finish,” she says. On the day of, treat your hair to Kérastase’s Elixir Ultime line with the serum to smooth ends and the new bi-phase spray oil to thicken, boost volume, and add shine.
For a hairstyle that lasts, Martin-Campbell recommends Kérastase’s V.I.P. dry volumizing and texturing spray, which gives hair immediate body, grip, and a strong yet re-shapable hold. And, to ensure that your hair and makeup look great long after a stylist works their magic, ask if sample or travel sizes of the products they used are available for touchups throughout the day!
