The Shine Countdown to Wedding Hair and Beauty
One Year To Go…
Do you want to know how to grow your hair for your wedding day?
Are you looking for the most beautiful hair colour for brides?
Or are you after the best haircut and hairstyle?
Then it’s time to start a regular hair care regime and routine. Did you know, for example, that the best way to grow your hair long is to actually cut it every 6 to 8 weeks? Yes! Having regular trims by a professional hairdresser at Shine will keep split ends at bay and encourage your hair to grow healthy, strong and long. One year before your wedding, it’s time to get your diary out and make a commitment to having regular hair cuts to trim the ends and keep your hair in optimum condition.
Home Hair Care for Brides
So, there’s 12 months to go before your wedding. Now is the time to ditch the sulphate-infused lower end shampoos and conditioners that will coat the hair and weigh it down. It’s time to invest in a professional shampoo and conditioner for your individual hair type and a deep conditioning treatment to be used once a week. Your Shine hairdresser will prescribe the perfect professional shampoo and conditioner with high quality, active ingredients that is suitable for your hair type.
Six Months To Go…
Book Your Hair & Beauty Appointments at Shine
With so many things to think about when organising your wedding, make sure you rebook your next wedding hair and beauty appointment every time you visit our salons in Stoke Newington. Leaving it last minute may mean we have no availability and you could be left disappointed. Many of our clients book their wedding hair appointments well in advance, right up until their big day.
Wedding Hair for Bridesmaids and Bridal Hair
Now is the time to really start thinking about the look you want to recreate for you and your bridesmaids on the big day. It’s a great idea to create an online wedding mood board that your bridesmaids can add their thoughts to, using the online scrapbook social site Pinterest. Send your Shine hairdresser the link to the mood board, too, so they can really get a feel for the look and style you’re trying to achieve. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for lots of wedding and bridal hair inspiration.
With all the stress of wedding planning, it is important to look after yourself and your wellbeing. Six months before your wedding day you should really start thinking about your skin. You can ensure your skin remains in optimum condition with regular facials every month Shine – click here to check out our full range of facial treatments. A professional facial treatment will not only benefit your skin, but can also be a welcome relaxing treatment that will leave you feeling rebalanced and rejuvenated.
Three Months To Go…
With less than three months to go, we’re guessing that you will have picked your wedding dress by now – phew! Finding the perfect wedding dress is the first step in creating the perfect bridal hairstyle that will complement your dress and wedding theme. Bring along your Pinterest board of bridal hair styles you like to your next hair appointment, and chat through some hair styling options with your Shine stylist.
Six Weeks To Go…
With just over a month to go…it’s all getting very exciting! Now is the time to have a wedding hair trial at our hair salons in Stoke Newington to try out a few of your favourite bridal hairstyles. This will enable you to try out different wedding hair styles so that you can see what suits you and what bridal hairstyle you will feel most comfortable in.

Two Weeks To Go…
Two weeks to go! Now is the time to colour your hair, have a final trim and a final wedding hair and makeup trial run. You might also want to book in for a relaxing treatment with one of our highly experienced beauty and holistic therapists like an Indian head massage, hot stone massage or Hopi ear candle treatment to counteract any wedding jitters, stresses or strains.

Three Days Before…
Any waxing treatments should be booked in today and you should shower and exfoliate ready for your Vita Liberata spray tan tomorrow.
Two Days Before…
A firm celebrity favourite, Vita Liberata is leading the way as the most luxurious, organic tanning brand in the Beauty industry.
First an all over body exfoliation is performed to remove dead skin cells and increase blood circulation for a deeper longer lasting tan. The deep conditioning and odourless Vita Liberata tan is then applied manually by one of our expert beauty therapists and buffed with a soft mitt. Eight hours after the application, you must then have a shower, to remove the excess tanning product and reveal a flawless glow. This treatment will soften, hydrate and moisturise your skin whilst leaving you with a long lasting, natural and even looking tan.
Please arrive wearing loose, dark clothing for your treatment. Also, it is not advisable to have waxed or shaved on the same day as tanning.
One Day Before The Wedding…
Relax with us and enjoy your Shine nail and pedicure appointment. We are official stockists and providers of CND Shellac and OPI nails, using the very best active ingredients to create beautiful chip free, shiny and strong wedding gel nails ready for your big day. Choose a traditional nude block colour or french polish finish.
One day before your wedding, wash your hair with your professional shampoo and conditioner ready to be styled into the perfect wedding hair style the next day. And lastly, don’t forget to get an early night!
On Your Wedding Day…
Congratulations! The big day is here and you will no doubt be full of emotion, excitement and wedding day jitters.

Wedding Hairstyle Ideas for Brides…
There are plenty of wedding hairstyles to choose from – you can opt for a style that will compliment your wedding dress and venue, whether it be a long/short wedding hairstyle, a charming updo or a braided hairstyle.
Wedding Hairstyles for Short Hair
There are various wedding day hairstyle options for short hair. Add a touch of Hollywood glam with a super chic retro hairdo, complimented with beautiful waves or textures. A simple yet elegant short hairstyle can also be decorated with wedding-themed accessories of embellished barrettes and headbands.
From deep glam waves to soft curls, the vintage look continues to set trends. You can opt for a lightly pinned up-do with added soft curls all over. We will consult with you to give you a style that not only compliments your face shape, but fits in perfectly with your wedding theme.
The choices are endless with long hair! You can go for the ‘au natural’ look, with lightly styled, dreamy loose curls or an on-trend braid or pony tail. There are many styles for long hair to take inspiration from and we will present you the best options for your individual look and wedding theme.
You may be looking to embrace a full on vintage theme on your wedding day with deep waves and textures – or maybe to simply add a retro twist on a current hairstyle? Our professional wedding hair stylists will create the perfect wedding hair style for you.
Celebrities such as Kate Moss and Olivia Palermo opted for unstructured Boho hairstyles for their big day. From soft romantic waves to messy updos and intricate braids, the Boho look is definitely one to consider for a more laid back vibe.
