It's your day; no wonder you want to look gorgeous. And with a little effort, you can. Everything on your wish list, Gisele Bundchen style hair with a uniform complexion, can be achieved with refined regiments starting weeks before walking down the aisle or with a little magic at the last hour. Either way, you will wear your exquisite look all night long (if not right in your honeymoon). Here the pros offer both strategies to address the main concerns of each bride.
Spot disorder: Short or sparse eyelashes.
Long Distance Attachment: Extensions turn plain-Jane eyelashes into protuberances of screen sirens without a hint of mascara – a huge benefit for tearful brides to come. The procedure from one to three hours requires a delicate touch: an expert beautician attaches synthetic lashes one by one to your upper lashes with a safe and durable adhesive. Your true eyelashes have a life span of sixty to ninety days, and fakes are spread with them. So, plan a session with your beautician for about three days before your wedding. Since you will be lying on a massage table with your eyes closed next time, you will probably find a welcome break. Prolonged use of eyelashes extension can damage your natural eyelashes. While you will be tempted to perform a retouch two or three weeks later, unless you are a screen siren, it is best to let the eyelashes fall off or have them removed by a professional .
Shortcut: "On brides, I always add black individual temporary false eyelashes, whether they are eight or two," says Lome makeup artist Sandy Linter. The extra fullness breaks the clear eyes and intensifies the brown or hazel irises, she explains. In spite of their name, individual eyelashes come in small minority groups known as "flares", but unlike complicated falsies, they can be trusted to stay in place. Linter glues rockets so that they do not interfere with its application of eye shadow, eyeliner and mascara. Then, to camouflage false eyelashes, she associates them with a second round of mascara, specifically a light formula.
Spot disorder: Soft hair.
Long Distance Fixing: Hair extensions do not just settle for Hollywood fashion with long locks. They are the best strategy of a bride to dodge a bad day of hair. In a Great Lengths application, a stylist starts by adhering to six bundles of human hair, which start at eight inches in length, at your own strands. If you want to turn your bob into a mass of curls (as Katie Holmes did earlier this year), you may need up to 300 attachments, which, once applied, are of melt naturally in your own hairstyle. You can opt for a longer look without adding length, but after the packages are attached, customers usually can not resist adding at least a few centimeters, says Marc Mena, senior stylist at Warren-Tricomi lounge in New York. The protein polymer ties, which look like plastic bumps at the end of the laces, are strategically placed to conceal the attachment sites, so you can also wear your hair.
Shortcut: "I use a kind of hair extension with 95% of my bridal clients," says Mena. Temporary clip extensions, also made of human hair, only take a few minutes to insert by a professional. "Two pieces on each side and three on the black of the head help hold all the styles," a haired boon that still loses its curl, according to Mena. Unlike linked extensions, temporary ones can be reused for future events. For brides who prefer to stick with their own hair, a bun or half-up-half-down can create fullness at the crown.
