Bridal Beauty Part 1

So you got the rock, firstly yay! (insert squeal here!) secondly where the heck do we start!?

modern-photographics

Bridal beauty has to be sectioned into 2 parts- hair and beauty. Why? Cause its a mammoth of a job!! But totally fun in the lead up to your big day!

Never again will you be able to get away with “what? (my future to be husband that put a ring on my finger so your basically stuck now) I need to have a facial every second week to get my skin glowing for our magical day where we say I do” or
“what? (my adoring future husband that knows a happy wife equals a happy life) I need to see my hairdresser every two weeks in lead up to our special so my locks are looking silky and smooth and in perfect condition for my perfect up do”

All jokes aside, your hair and beauty regime should be ramped up to the lead up of “The Day”

Firstly Skin:  The point is to get your skin in as good shape as possible so your makeup looks fantastic, stays in place, behaves as it should, and you need less of it. And even the most close up shots of you, hours into the event, are lovely.

So here is what we recommend, A fortnightly facial: we have many different facials at Esstudio to suit time and budgets.   This will feed your skin with nutrients and get it healthy.
IPL treatments.. If you can afford these they are the gold!  Its advisable to have at least 3 treatments at 3 week intervals.. IPL removes sun damage and pigmentation, refines pores and stimulates collagen and elastin.  You skin will be like a baby’s bum!
Call us for a free skin consult.
Now the work doesn’t just stop in the salon, it is advised to continue at home..
La Clinicas GlyC range will get your skin looking fabulous for your wedding.

At least six weeks before, use a powerful, do-it-all, rejuvenating serum each night under a hydrating cream, Jax recommends La Clinica’s Caviar and Peral serum from their firming lift range, get a thorough exfoliation (this might mean a few peels (Esstudio’s GlyC miroderm facials will do the trick) and skin-boosting nourishment from traditional facials in the final month.

And lets not forget your brows, lash extensions and  paws and claws! All things that can be up kept at Esstudio.

Nasty Polish

MjAxMy1kZDJkOWQ5ZjAwZmE4ODI3

Are you aware of the potential dangers of your pretty named nail polish ?
With cute names like bubble bath or Strawberry shortcake,  are you blinded from the potential dangers of these polishes?  With some scary ingredients that are known cancer causing chemicals and those toxic to the nervous system.

The top three worst chemicals of concern are toluene, dibutyl phalate (dbp) and formaldehyde – the TOXIC TRIO.

232367-bigthumbnail

DBP is now banned from cosmetics in the EU, but the other two are still allowed.
It is a commonly used to make plastic.  It is also used as an additive to adhesives or printing inks.  It is a suspected endocrine disruptor.  Meaning its bad for your hormones! 

Toluene, a solvent and pain thinner, is a potent neurotoxicant ( toxic to the nervous system) that acts as an irritant, impairs breathing and causes nausea, according to EWG. It’s especially hazardous if your pregnant, as breathing in toluene vapours can harm your unborn baby.

Formaldehyde, on the other hand, is commonly found in nail-hardening formulas and is a known allergen classified as “carcinogenic to humans”.  We’ve all heard of formaldehyde.
I’ve had a few clients that have said their nail has fallen off using nail hardeners.  It is the main ingredient in hardeners. Formaldehyde is highly toxic to all animals, regardless of method of intake. Ingestion of 30 mL (1 oz.) of a solution containing 37% formaldehyde has been reported to cause death in an adult human.[28] Water solution of formaldehyde is very corrosive and its ingestion can cause severe injury to the upper gastrointestinal tract.  There is so many wrong things with Formaldehyde.

Fortunately, a number of beauty brands, including some mainstream ones, are now phasing out these chemicals, and are proudly 3 free already. A few have gone 4 and 5 by also excluding Formaldehyde resins from their formulas and / or camphor, a strong smelling plasticizer that can be an irritant in large amount.

Our favorite polish that we use at Esstudio is Hello Darling which is 5 Free! (meaning absolutely NO toulene, formaldehyde/formaldehyde resin, DBP or camphor) and are animal testing & cruelty free. They didn’t stop there – it is also  free of parabens, phthalates, SLS and SLES, and source low-toxicity & biodegradable ingredients to make it as safe as possible to humans, with minimal impact on the environment and other living beings.

 

The Barber shop.

We are seeing more out’a control beards than one can handle! Lets just sort one thing out, put it this way… How would you like us to walk around with long untamed hairy muff’s, eewwww… Mmm I don’t think so, take a trip to your local barber and have a clip and a shave… You may even enjoy it! The Barbershop is so trending right now.  It’s ok to grow that beard.. just not out of control.  It doesn’t look or feel nice, especially when your going in for a good old pash.  The esstudio crew is doing fab old fashioned style shaves and clipper clean ups, nourishing those beards chemical free (that’s right no nasties ingredients) Handsome devil Co these products are awesome.

A bit good ol’ history.

Do you know what the red, white and blue pole represent?. Well that is associated with bloodletting and was a representation of bloody bandages wrapped around the pole.  In the Medieval times early 1900’s your local barber and physician were one and the same man.  Barbers performed surgery on customers as well as tooth extractions and cut their hair too!  This went on for 6 centuries.  Next time you come in for a hair cut maybe we will pull that tooth out too!! YIKES! Only men visited barber shops, originally all hairdressing on women was done in the home, usually by the wives and daughters of barbers.  Wow how things have changed.

Soon in the salon you will be seeing our restored barber chairs appear.  These chairs have a lot of history.  If only they could speak.  Made in the early 1900’s by Louis Hanson there aren’t too many of these around anymore.  Here is one pictured above…Look closely though… .. Are they having a shave or his he having a tooth removed???

Guys and Gals stay tuned for our video tutorials to go live soon.   Were doing everything from women’s styling to make up and nails and men’s styling too!! We may even show you how to tame your own beard!        

 

 

 

 

 

TIPS FOR TANNERS

14_indoor_tanning_airbrush_2

Now that Summer has arrived, a spray tan is pretty much a necessity to ease you back into lazy days at the beach. I mean, nobody wants to be that pasty girl on the sand, sparkling like a disco ball, right? But with a spray tan comes that niggling doubt of what if – what if I go orange? What if I go patchy? Or streaky? Well below I have written my very own guide to the ultimate spray tan so that you can make the most out of this summer.

First of all, exfoliation is key. A spray tan works by staining the outer layer of your skin cells darker (not as scary as it sounds – trust me). By exfoliating, you are removing the dead skin cells that would have flaked off in a couple of days and leaving behind younger skin cells that will stick around much longer which means a more even and longer lasting tan.

On the day of your spray tan, don’t wear any deodorant, perfume or moisturizer to your appointment. Not only do these products create a barrier between your skin and the tan (and only where you have applied it – hello patchy tan!), but deodorant can also turn your tan green! Not a good look.

Once your tan has been applied, don’t swim, shower or sweat until the development time is over. This can range anywhere from 30 minutes to eight hours, so make sure that you check before you leave your appointment! Make sure that if you have an Express Tan (30mins-4 hours) that you don’t leave it on longer than the recommended development time – it can overdevelop and may go orange. If you have a 6-8 hour tan then this won’t overdevelop and can be left overnight.

Once your tan has developed, jump in the shower and use a sulphate-free shower gel to cleanse your skin as sulphates found in other body wash products can strip your tan. After showering, pat your skin dry with your towel rather than rub so that you don’t prematurely fade the tan.

Make sure that you use a body butter every day – morning and night – to keep your skin hydrated as this will prevent dead skin cells flaking off and taking your tan with them!

Avoid chlorinated pools, the beach and hot showers as these can all cause premature fading.

Enjoy your summer!
