Who doesn't want to look amazing?
Right now we are in the midst of Red-Carpet Award Season and many of us are…or are wanting to head out of town. It doesn’t matter where you are headed, the rules are the same!
I don't care if you are planning a weekend getaway or just getting Red-Carpet ready for a weekend event, you need to make a plan.
First, things first. Do not get a wax, hair color, or spray tan right before your big day. Let's just say I recently learned from experience.
You will always want to have had the service done at least a month before to see how you will react.
Do you get staining from your hair color? Did you stay red or break out from a waxing? Too much color from your Spray-Tan?
You should be able to answer these questions before proceeding. This will help avoid any "unexpected" results.
Make a mental note and make a plan! What happened with me? Waxing was fine--I know how I react, so no worries. I did decide to spray tan and do color....the night before. I did not make a plan.
I had really bad staining from the hair dye...I decided to do something a little different. Big mistake. Huge. I scrubbed till there was almost no skin left and still had slight staining. This could have totally been avoided had I stuck with my normal routine. I didn't. I know it can take a couple of days for that staining to disappear. What was I thinking? Oh, I really wasn't, thank you.
My Spray-Tan was good overall. Orange toenails, not so sexy, come-to-find-out. I forgot there is a learning curve to Spray-Tanning. I have several mental post-its in my brain from that one.
Think of this as a cautionary tail. Spring and Summer are on the way and there will be reunions, weddings and what-not. No one wants to show up looking like a big-hot-mess. Make a plan, make a plan, make a plan.
And remember...it is great to try a new product or beauty service...just not the the day before your big day.
...and stained, orange toenails are NEVER sexy.
