When to Wash your Hair 

The team will tell you how much in advance you should wash your hair before your wedding when you go in for a bridal trial session. They are specialists in that they know which hair types do better with which hair styles and will help you determine whether washing your hair the day of your wedding or the day before will work best.

Makeup Looks

Arbor Salon and Spa is a big advocate for making the bride feel as beautiful as possible while still feeling like herself. They suggest that if you’re not one to take on a bold makeup look, then opt for a more natural makeup look. However, if dramatic makeup is your thing, they are experts at accentuating your eyes or lips with bolder colors. With a combination of Mirabella makeup and experts at Arbor Salon and Spa, your makeup will look professional while covering up blemishes, accentuating your best features, and evening out your skin tone.
