Hair Care - Facts and Techniques You Need to Learn

I started my career as a beautician at seven when I opened my own bedroom salon. I painted nails, braided hair, and I even applied makeup like a pro. You can say that I have always had an interest in beauty, and I naturally attended beauty school immediately after I graduated high school. When the time came to find a job, I started my own salon with a small loan from my mother. I wanted my salon to be special, so I worked with clients to teach them what I knew about hair care techniques. Throughout the years, I have learned that most people know very little about their hair. They believe that the hair needs to be washed every day and they also think that conditioner is enough to treat dry locks. I started this blog so I could educate the public on a larger scale about hair care.

Shopping For Your Wedding Dress? Tips To Make It Less Stressful

Beauty & Fashion Blog

You're shopping for your wedding dress, but it isn't just any dress, it's THE DRESS. This isn't just any shopping trip, it's shopping for the dress everyone will be looking at on the day you say "I do" to the person you love most in the world. When you think of it all that way, it can make that shopping day a little more stressful than you thought it would be. See below for some helpful tips to make the day a little less stressful.

Stick To Just A Few Stores

Don't plan on visiting fifteen dress shops in one single day. Stick to only about 3 or 4 if possible. Going to too many will not only stress you out, you'll forget the dresses you tried on and the experience won't be fun at all. Make an appointment at the dress shops so you have a sales person that has time to help you try on the dresses, and are guaranteed a fitting room to try a dress on. 

Bring A Close Friend Or Family Member

Bring someone with you that knows your style and understands the look you are trying to find for your wedding dress. A close friend or a close family member that will be there to help you and give you honest opinions will be helpful. Don't bring too many people with you, or you'll have too many opinions - not everyone is going to like your dress choice, but that doesn't mean you have to hear all of those opinions at once.

Take Pictures

Have your friend or helper take photos of you in the dresses so you can look later at which dress you liked the best. You may like the dress in the store, but looking back at the photos, you may like the way you look in a completely different dress.

Try On Different Styles

You may think you love the look of a strapless A-line gown, but try on a tight-fitting mermaid gown or even a poofy ball gown to see if you may like these styles instead. You may be surprised. Keep an open mind when trying on gowns.

Items To Bring With You:

You're going to be spending quite a bit of time out shopping for dresses, which may prove to be a long day. Be sure to bring a handful of items with you to get you through the day.

  • Nude underwear (that won't show when trying on gowns).
  • Strapless bra
  • Aspirin
  • Water
  • Granola bars (or energy bars for in between meals)
  • Energy drinks

Dress shopping for your wedding is a very exciting time, but it can also be stressful. You don't have to buy one on the first day of shopping. Plan on taking multiple trips to different bridal shops, and keep an open mind when trying on different dress styles. Allow the sales people to help you, and bring someone with you to help as well.
