Wedding Lashes: What You Need To Know

Summer is a bustling time for Lash Technicians. As the days grow longer and warmer, many more seek a perfect set of lashes for vacationsfestivals, and weddings too! While weddings are joyous occasions filled with love and celebration, the preparation can be a whirlwind of emotions for brides and grooms. As professionals, when tasked with creating the ultimate lash set for such a momentous day, it's imperative to offer a thorough consultation, ensuring every bride and/or groom feels confident and radiant.

Why a Wedding Consultation is SO Important

Starting off, it's essential to conduct a more detailed consultation than usual. We always suggest having this discussion prior to the trial lash session. This ensures that you and your client are aligned regarding the final look of their wedding lash set. During this chat, it's vital to clarify certain aspects to guarantee the lash set aligns with their vision, satisfies their requirements, and enhances their wedding ensemble.

You need to remember that every aspect of a wedding, no matter how small, contributes to the overall experience and memories of the day. Lashes, though subtle, can make a significant difference in a bride's appearance, confidence, and comfort. This is why a wedding lash consultation is not just recommended, but essential. It provides an opportunity for the lash technician and the bride to collaborate, ensuring the final look aligns with the bride's vision and complements her overall wedding aesthetic.

Wedding Lashes Considerations

Here are two primary considerations, apart from the standard consultation pointers:

Have They Had Lash Extensions Before?

This isn't solely about potential allergic reactions (though it's undeniably crucial), it's about comfort too. Many of your clients may be accustomed to flaunting long, dense lashes either because they've always sported them or gradually adapted to them. For such individuals, these lashes feel like second nature; however, for a newbie, diving straight into a dramatic volume set might feel overwhelming.

What's Their Makeup Style?

Their makeup choice will influence their lash preference or your recommendations. If they're opting for a minimalistic look or barely-there makeup, they might lean towards a more understated lash style such as Nude Look lashesClassic lash extensions, or maybe a Natural Hybrid lash look. On the other hand, if they're going for a bold smokey eye paired with a striking contour and highlight, then voluminous lashes are the way to go!

Important Note: For wedding lashes or lashes for any significant event, it's beneficial to highlight on your website or social platforms that you adopt a meticulous approach. This includes additional measures during sessions to ensure the lash set is impeccable, leaving the client both pleased and at ease.

Information To Collect During The Consultation

During the consultation, it's crucial to gather specific details to tailor the lash experience perfectly. This includes understanding the bride's skin type, any allergies, her daily makeup routine, and her desired wedding day look. It's also beneficial to know the wedding's theme, color palette, and even the venue, as these can influence the lash style. For instance, a beach wedding might call for a more natural lash set or a stunning Wet Lash look, while a glamorous ballroom event might suit a dramatic, voluminous look. 

The Importance Of A Trial Session

A trial session is more than just a preview; it's a rehearsal for the big day. It allows the bride to experience the look and feel of the lashes, ensuring there are no surprises on the wedding day. This session provides an opportunity to make any necessary adjustments, whether it's the lash length, volume, or curl. Moreover, a trial helps in gauging the wearability and longevity of the lashes, ensuring they'll last through the tears, laughter, and countless photographs (that's what Superbonder's for). In essence, a trial ensures that on the wedding day, the bride can focus on the joy of the occasion, confident that her lashes are flawless.

When it comes to wedding prep, every little detail counts, and lashes are no exception. Think of them as the cherry on top of the bridal/groom look. Taking the time for a thorough consultation and a trial isn't just about getting the look right; it's about feeling fabulous and ready for one of the biggest days in one's life. So, as a Lash Artist, remember: it's those little details, like the perfect set of lashes, that can make a big day even more special.
