Tips To Prepare

Tips to Getting the Most Out of a Hair and Makeup Service with the Polished Girls (Share this link with the rest of your Party who is booked in)

Prepping for MAKEUP 

Good hydrated skin will make your makeup look its best. Do a mild face scrub and put on a hydrating mask twice a week (for 30mins) or sleep in the mask the couple of weeks running up to your event. You can buy single use masks and scrubs in Penney’s or any chemist.  This will help shed the dead skin cells, to uncover your new fresh skin underneath and the extra hydration from the mask which will help your skin glow and makeup last on the day. On the morning of your appointment arrive to the makeup artist with cleansed and moisturised skin with no eye makeup on and lashes clean. Primer and setting spray will be added to make your makeup last. If you are wearing eyelash extensions or have yumi lashes, LVL lashes or a lash lift or HD or henna brows done we can work around those. Tell our makeup artists any concerns, what you usually like and your skincare routine and any other makeup looks you would like. Bring a photo if you wish.

Our artists can use your own makeup if you wish so feel free to bring along your own skincare or makeup products to your appointment.

Application of individual lashes or strip lashes are part of the service. Our artists can guide you on what to choose. They are safe and suitable for all ages, young and more mature, are very natural looking and will make eyes pop and often last a few days, so you will have them for your whole weekend and the after party!

Prepping for HAIR

If you are having an upstyle, ghd curls, plaits or boho waves arrive with your hair dry but washed “the day before” with no styling products in it. (If it is very silky or fine dont condition it when you wash it).

If you have straight hair and are looking for a bouncy or curly blowdry it is best to wash hair the day before and we will use a curler to put soft bouncy curls in. This is because the hold of the curl is much better on a straight haired client using a tongs than trying to do a curly blowdry on freshly washed straight hair!

If you have curly hair and are looking for a bouncy or curly blowdry then having your hair washed and in a towel is best on the morning of the treatment as a curly blowdry will hold best for those who have naturally curly hair.

If you are having a straight blow-dry or you have short hair and are looking for a curly blowdry wash your hair “the morning of your appointment” and arrive to the stylist with damp hair in a towel.  No product in it. (If it is very silky or fine dont condition it).

If hair is very long, thick and curly and you are looking for a curly blowdry please advise us of same as extra time may need to be allocated.

These tips are just a guide to preparing yourself. If you know what works best for your hair and skin go with your usual routine and let our professionals polish you to a stunning exterior.
