Things You Should Know

When To Schedule

One to three months prior to your wedding date is best! Your hair color and length, skin tone and texture, and inspiration will be most accurate to your wedding day. Appointments are available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

What To Bring

We encourage you to wear white with a similar neckline to your wedding dress.

Bring your veil, hair accessories, earrings, and any jewelry you will be wearing on your wedding day.

Plan Ahead

Make the most of your hair and makeup appointment by checking out one of the nearby restaurants, shops, and sights afterwards in Hyde Park Village. Hyde Park Village is an outdoor destination full of delicious places to eat and stylish shops in the heart of historic Tampa. It’s only a short three minute drive from our studio. Some restaurants we recommend include: Forbici, Timpano, On Swann, Bar Taco, Ro, and Meat Market. Make it a date night and catch a film at Cinebistro. Thinking of pairing your appointment with your engagement shoot, we are close to all your photographers favorite locations including the University of Tampa, Tampa RiverWalk, Bayshore Blvd., and Armature Works.

Interested in seeing the entire look come together from head to toe?! Book your preview appointment for the same day as your final dress fitting. Remember to account for the three hour preview appointment and commute to your bridal shop.

Beauty Prep Tips

Skin Care

The key to a flawless makeup application begins with skin care months before your wedding day. A routine regime of cleansing, exfoliating twice a week, moisturizing, and applying spf daily is essential. Exfoliate your skin and use a good moisturizer the night before your preview appointment. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water, hydration is key!

Haircare

Clean hair is a must! Wash and blow dry the night before or morning of your preview. Avoid putting any styling products in your hair. Color and trim your hair within a week or two of your preview. You will also want to schedule a color touch up and trim for the same timeframe prior to your wedding day.

Spray Tan

If you plan on having a spray tan for your wedding we HIGHLY recommend getting it done before your preview. Check with your spray tan artist before to time it appropriately. Typically 2-3 days before is best! For best spray tan results wear loose fitting clothes and avoid wearing sneakers and socks. Flip flops or sandals are best. Hydrated skin is ideal for spray tans so make sure you are moisturizing your body weeks before your tan to hydrate your skin. Skip body lotion and deodorant the morning of your tan. Communicate your desired look with your spray tan artist. Follow the provided after care for best results and experience. We recommend BLB Luxury for your spray tanning needs.

Hair Extensions

Clip in extensions are a great option if you are looking to add length or thickness to your hair. They make an incredible difference in creating more intricate hairstyles, and are a must have for glam waves.

Make sure to bring the extensions to your preview! Wash your extensions a week prior to your preview appointment with sulfate free shampoo and lay them flat to dry on a towel. Make sure the extensions are fully dry for the appointment. We recommend ordering Bellami and Cashmere Hair clip in hair extensions.

Beauty Prep

Arrive with a clean and makeup free face. Avoid using heavy moisturizers or serums the morning of your appointment as this will make the skin too slick. We apply a relaxing and hydrating skin prep that works best with the makeup application. For best results, remove any unwanted facial hair by waxing or dermaplaning a few days before and groom your eyebrows.
