Uno Salon and Barber has been witnessing some awesome couples lately. This salon has been in the historic Flamingo hotel for the past 20 years. So maybe it’s too subtle to describe our couples as spontaneous, risk-takers when it comes to wedding planning. This is not to say that we exclusively cater to the unconventional, non-traditional couples; we find every story exciting. From the deep-rooted, heartfelt unions to the spontaneous romantic getaway that naturally rolled into a jam session down the aisle with Elvis! That's why we decided to become experts in this area.
Inspired by some of our favorite patrons, we decided to compile a few tips for both brides and grooms to prepare for your big day:
Drink lots of water
Ladies, we will make sure to make your makeup look radiant for your big day. However, please remember to drink plenty of water. It will make your skin look replenished and give it a natural glow. Gentleman, in addition to drinking plenty of water, exfoliate. Women tend to have a better handle on this (not always). When we send you back to our barbershop for that nice shave, your skin will have a much nicer glow to it when it’s well nourished and hydrated.
Nails deserve love
Whether or not you think people notice--they do! Try something new with our Shellac Certified Nail artists. She can jazz up the traditional french manicure or embellish a pretty pastel with some polka dots. Guys, Get your nails buffed and trimmed.
This is very important and usually deserves the most amount of attention so here are five tips we suggest you consider for your bridal hair checklist:
- Bring photos of your wedding dress fitting
- Bring a photo of how you would like your hair to look.
- Be open. Leave room for an outcome that may be slightly different from what you envision in your mind. Texture and length may impact our ability to replicate the exact style.
- Time. If possible, come in a day or two the big day for a practice session. This will lift a lot of the last minute stress off of you and your stylist.
- Accessorize. This can really dress up a simple style and bring it to the next level!
For our gentlemen, we have noticed that over the years you have taken more creative license when it comes to cut and color. No need to worry. We have your specialist as well, yet same rules apply. If you have a style in mind be sure to bring in some examples.
There you have it. Whether you are among the free thinkers or you lean more on the traditional side, come experience the warmth of our Uno Salon and Barber Family, and allow us to help manifest your vision for the big wedding day. Thank you in advance for sharing your wedding day with us!
