It seems like every bride in town goes out to the salon to get ready for her wedding – but it also seems like the most common thing to come out of that salon with is a manicure, a pedicure, or (most commonly) both. While manicures and pedicures are very important details for a bride before her wedding, there are other services you may want to consider. If you'd like to spend a full day at the salon, and get more done than just a manicure and pedicure, there's plenty more to be done. So if you're wondering what non-nail related procedures you can choose before your wedding from your local salon, then here's what you need to know.
Whether it's your eyebrows or eyelashes (or both), tinting is a fantastic service offered by nearly every salon you can find that brings out your natural beauty without any makeup being required. As the name suggests, tinting is the process of dyeing your eyebrows and/or eyelashes a darker shade, making them stand out more and making it so you don't have to apply makeup (or as much makeup) to them on your wedding day. As an added bonus, tinting gives you the illusion of makeup without requiring the work – perfect on a honeymoon where all you want to do is relax and enjoy yourself.
This one might not be exactly a roaring good time, but it can be soothing (if done by a professional who is an expert in the hair removal technique of your choice) and can definitely lower your stress if you're worried about stubble anywhere on your body come the big day. Whether you prefer waxing, hair removal cream, threading (for small areas such as your upper lip or eyebrows), or sugaring, immediate hair removal techniques can help you relax and prep for your wedding at the same time – and what bride doesn't love a two-for-one bargain?
Massage used to be a domain that was explored predominantly by luxury spas, but in recent years, many salons have branched out a little further into the wonderful world of hand-powered relaxation. From Swedish to hot rock to jet-fueled hydro-massage therapy, there's sure to be an option that suits your pressure tolerance and personal tastes. This list of the most popular forms of massage can help you narrow down and decide what type best suits you and your pre-wedding stress level.
