The Perfect Look
Seeing the bride and her bridesmaids all dolled up is one of the best parts of weddings. The girls feel beautiful and confident when a stylist gets their hair and makeup just right. Finding a great salon isn’t the easiest with so many to choose from, and the good ones always book quickly.
Because of how crazy the wedding season can be, Creative Hair Design Salon & Spa (creativehairdesign.com) schedules all of their wedding parties six months in advance to ensure that they can accommodate the needs of the bridal party on the day they request. One month before the wedding, they do a trial hair run to ensure the bride ends up with the hair that she both wants and that looks amazing on her. They do everything they can to make sure you look perfect on your wedding day, leaving as little room for error as possible.
A benefit of being a large salon is that they are able to schedule everyone at the same time on the wedding day, allowing one hour per hair service and one hour per makeup application. Creative Hair Design & Spa also has a private area for the bridal parties to bring in food and/or drinks so they can wait together for their services to be finished. There’s nothing like a little girl time before a wedding.
