Check out these expert bridal beauty tips and tricks from the top wedding hair and makeup pros in the biz below:
“When you’re trying to decide how to wear your hair always look to the dress. You want your hair to complement your attire. However, the most important thing to remember is to be you and make sure you feel comfortable with your entire look.” – AnnElyse Salon and Spa
“Every makeup application should begin with primer. Primer will help absorb extra oils, keeping your makeup fresh throughout the event. A matte foundation is a perfect choice for many reasons. Along with the primer, it will also help to absorb extra oils and it photographs beautifully.” – Atherial Makeup and Skin Studio
“We’re seeing fresh faces trending – a dewy finish, neutral lip, with the main focus being eyes and a great lash. A great pair of false lashes or a bold lip can add just enough drama for your wedding look.” – blo.

“From coffee to cocktails, your day changes. What we do is create a look that progresses as small moments of your day unfold. By the end of the night, let your hair down and have a look that matches the mood.” – Chelsey Ann Artistry
“There are many advantages to doing a trial run. It’s helpful for the makeup artist to learn your skin type, features and gives us a chance to meet and get to know each other before the big day. It’s also great for the bride to be able to see the look she has in mind because sometimes until you see the look on you, it might not be exactly how you envisioned. It gives us a chance to work through the looks to achieve the best one for you!” – Faccia Bella
Look your best for the big day by transforming any trouble areas. Injectable Aesthetics is Oklahoma’s only cosmetic office that provides Botox and dermal filler exclusively.
“As an esthetician, I like to focus on making your skin the best it can be, which will give your makeup a flawlessly dewy glow. Hydration is huge! Lets face it; most of us don’t get our daily water intake. This is important not only to flush out your insides and help with bloating, but it will also help your skin look fresh and balanced; not flakey and dull.” – Kaydee Jean Makeup & Skin
“When you are being professionally photographed, you will need more makeup than you would wear for an every day look. You will look like you are wearing less in pictures than you actually are. Trust that your stylist knows the balance between making you look great in photographs and in real life! Also, if you are on the fence about getting clip in extensions or even permanent extensions to enhance your wedding day look, go for it! Adding that extra fullness or length is something my brides always end up loving!” – Lexi Faught Hair and Makeup

“For makeup: Full lashes and bold lips are a way to make a strong statement. There are various ways to achieve both looks. For hair: The days of cookie cutter hair are gone. Embrace your natural texture, play up a style with a unique hair accessory or try a fun twisted loop in place of the ever loved top knot.” – Malorie Avaline – Beauty Unveiled

“It’s an opportunity to put an incredibly unique and innovative touch on your style. I’ve incorporated brooches from grandmothers, pieces of old broken necklaces that have been in someone’s family for generations, and even heirloom diamond earrings into bridal hair designs! In addition to metallic accessories, boho brides can rest easy – flower crowns and braids aren’t going anywhere!” – Profile Concierge Hair Services
“I have a wonderful makeup setting spray that won’t budge! If touch-ups are needed for oilier skins, a blotting paper or blotting powder is perfect because it will never look caked on.” – Sooo Lilly
