Wedding Hair & Beauty

A professional hairdresser and make-up artist can work wonders and bring out your best features but they cannot create miracles so it's all up to you to look your best on your Cairns tropical north queensland wedding day. Good looks depend on good health and now is the time to eat well, begin exercising and commence with your hair, skin and nails regime. It's a good idea to get in touch with your regular hairdresser and decide on a not so fussy hairstyle that will suit your facial features, style of dress and accessories.

Of course you will also need to take into consideration the actual location of your Cairns wedding ceremony because if you are having a beach wedding or a wedding on a boat on the Great Barrier Reef it can get a bit windy at times. Your hairdresser can also advise you on how to keep your hair looking healthy and shiny for your wedding day. It's also a good idea to have a trial of the hairstyle you have in mind just to make sure you will be happy with it on the day as you cannot change it at the last minute. Have your hairdresser photograph the style that you decide on so that you may show it to your Cairns wedding hairdresser and make up artist.



Make sure you hair is in peak condition before you arrive in Cairns and if you have coloured hair make sure your regular hairdresser at home has done a re-touch for you at least a few days before your wedding to ensure it looks natural and is the colour that you are happy with.

Make-up artists are not magicians either so please ensure you are looking after yourself and give up those horrid cigarettes that give your skin that yellow tinge and the lines around your lips long before your beautiful wedding day. Make up professionally and cleverly applied by a Cairns wedding make-up artist should enhance your natural features all day and keep you looking beautiful for the photographs and video.

Make-up colours should be kept as natural as possible and be in harmony with your dress, accessories and the colours your bridesmaids are wearing and also another thing you need to take into consideration when having a wedding in the tropics where it is warm and inviting it is advisable to wear as little makeup as possible to stay cool and comfortable all day long and into the evening.

Furthermore, it is well-advised to book a beautician to perform your facials; manicures and pedicures months before the wedding to ensure your skin and nails are the best they can be on the day. If you are not the keep-fit type or gym junkie, an easy way to get yourself in trim is to swim regularly as it stretches all of your muscles and increases your lung capacity. An even better treat would be a couple of spa-accommodation weekends at a destination spa with the full works: aromatherapy, reflexology, massage, facial, sauna, etc — just the thing to ease away those pre-wedding tensions.

Also there is no such thing as a crash diet so, if you intend to lose weight, then give yourself plenty of time to get to your desired weight and do it sensibly or it will just pile back on again right after the wedding. If your dress size does change, then make sure you give your wedding dress designer plenty of time to make the alterations to your dress. But be warned wedding dresses are made of very delicate materials and do not accommodate changes as the fabric is very fine.
