Providing bridal and wedding services is very lucrative--and very popular. How do you stand out and become the beauty provider of choice for wedding day hair and makeup services? Let me fill you in on the things that have worked for me and my salon, gaining us awards, accolades and many happy brides.
Weddings are booming in 2022 as brides who planned their special day to happen in the last two years were forced to postpone. That's great news for salons working to rebuild, but brides come with their own headaches. To help answer her brides' questions, Caralee Pridemore, the founder of Sweetly Pinned @caraleestyles and a Sam Villa Ambasador, developed a bridal menu that answered offers style suggestions and possibilities and a timeline breakdown.
Setting a great foundation is so important for achieving a long-lasting hairstyle. For bridal updos or special occassion looks, Lori Fudens (@Lorifudens_Redkenartist) goes through these steps to prep hair for success.
During COVID, stylists found many ways to stay afloat when they couldn't see clients. Haley Garber combined her love for design and her crafty capabilities to open an Etsy store to sell her handmade hair accessories.
Krystle Waivio uses her hands to shape and sculpt these looks, incorporating products that will impart moisture and shine. And by working with a curl pattern, she is able to set a style in place with ease.
