Your Hampshire and Dorset Wedding - May/June 2023 (Issue 98)

Q&A Beauty Look your big-day best with help from the professionals SUMMER LOVIN’ I need some ideas for a bridal hairstyle that can be worn up for my late-summer wedding – what can you suggest? For late summer weddings, brides want a showstopping style for their big day. Go for an ultra-modern and sleek knot bun with a statement side fringe, a glamorous low ponytail with a wave or a mid-height curly textured bun or French twist. All these styles are trending and will indeed wow your guests! Also, consider taking your style even further by choosing the right accessory. You could go for real flowers, a headband or a bow comb – all are super modern and popular choices for 2023 brides. Remember to always book your bridal hairstylist based on their portfolio of work and pick your style based on their repertoire. Work with the team to choose a style that suits the dress and theme. That way, you’ll look back at photos and love them for years to come. Sabrina Buck | Love Is In The Hair By Sabrina BIG-DAY BEAUTIFUL Our summer wedding is fast approaching; how can I get my skin big-day ready? It’s never too early to start having a good skin care routine, which ensures your make-up stays in place all day. A typical morning routine should include a cleanser, toner and targeted serums – think anti-ageing and brightening products. Follow with an eye cream, moisturiser and an SPF. Remove make-up before applying a cleanser, toner, targeted face oil, night cream and a lash serum in the evenings. A weekly face mask treatment is relaxing and needed for a busy bride. A great all-rounder is an exfoliating mask to help keep your skin soft and smooth by buffing away dead skin cells to help products absorb better. A monthly seven-day Vitamin C treatment will give you brighter and smoother-looking skin. My favourite way to ensure healthy skin, hair and nails is a daily liquid marine collagen supplement, which combines marine collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid and acerola Cherry (derived vitamin C) to help smooth skin texture while reducing the appearance of pores and wrinkles.
