The Hair: Do's, Don't's & Tips

Thinking about your big day? I know the excitement and the stress are killing you. Luckily you have nothing to fear. We here at Krystal Studios have tips for everything and this week, we would like to focus on... HAIR. 

Hair is definitely a big item to work with and the sooner the better. We have tips for do's and don't's, when the best time is to start planning your hairstyle and products we definitely recommend to keep those locks healthy, shiny and smooth.

First off, I bet all you lucky brides are wondering when should I start planning out my hairstyle?  We definitely recommend seeing us as far out as six months before the big day. Planning on the perfect look from highlights to colors to updos or leaving your hair down is a big decision and you want to make sure you like the style and the color.  This also gives enough time that if you want to alter, or change the style you have plenty of time to do so.

It is also good to keep your hair conditioned and treated. Depending on your hair type, here are some good options:

For Fine hair: It is best to stay away from oil based deep conditioners. These products will wipe away any volume from fine strands. This can also leave your scalp greasy. We here at Krystal Rose Studios recommend a Keratin conditioning treatment. Find these treatments that are made of proteins to strengthen hair without adding any excess weight. Once a week is enough for your hair type.

Our recommendation is Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Keratin Intensive Treatment

For Curly hair/damaged hair: If you have thick, coarse or dry curly hair, shea butter and/or coconut oil are your best bets. You definitely want to speak to your stylist at Krystal Rose Studios in regards to the best hair masks and conditioning treatments to keep those curly locks hydrated. A leave-in conditioner like Paul Mitchell's Full Leave-in Circle Treatment is a great option

Be sure to visit your hairstylist 2-3 weeks before hand to get the color touch-up and style you want. (1.5 weeks for Blonde colors/style touch-ups)

How To Conceal Under Eye Circle/Bags

Learn how to cover up dark circles with orange salmon concealer.

1)When you need to neutralize a color refer to the color wheel.

2)If you want to get rid of the blue undertone in your eye go with the opposite color on the wheel, which is blue.  

3)Your next step is to conceal with one shade lighter than your natural color. I recommend using Bobbi Brown Correctors they come in 16 pink- or peach-based shades that are designed to layer with Bobbi Brown’s yellow-based concealers. My other favorite is Eve Pearl Concealers, which come in peach/salmon conceal shades.
