BRIDAL HAIR & MAKEUP ARTISTRY
You have been dreaming about and planning your wedding day for so long…and you want everything to be perfect – the dress, the flowers, the ceremony, the reception and of course your hair and makeup. You want to look beautiful and to feel special; you want to glow but still look like you; you want the most professional services which deliver exceptional results. Icon hair and makeup Artistry understands all this and has 20 years of experience in Bridal hair and make up artistry.
Bridal makeup needs to do a lot more than everyday makeup! It needs to look stunning up close and photograph beautifully as well. It must last all day and into the evening, without the need for major touch-ups. It needs to be water resistant for our humid climate; oil free for reduced shine, and to be light and comfortable to wear. A bride should not look ‘plastered’ or feel uncomfortable in the makeup she is wearing and it should complement her features and highlight her beauty. Bridal hairstyles have to be the best looking hairstyles at a wedding because the bride is the focus of attention. It is the day of her life that she has been looking forward to since she was little and she has to make it the most memorable occasion. There are so many other worries but bridal hairstyles are at the forefront with the major ones. Bridal hairstyles not only have to match the person but also compliment the dress, the veil, the shoes, the wedding colors, and the special ambience of the wedding itself. There are numerous bridal hairstyles, classic and new, that are fit for each person. Bridal hairstyles can be any style from updos to flowing down. For hair up bridal hair styles, there are diverse, decorative ways to put your hair up. For those who choose flowing bridal hairstyles, having hair at its shiniest and softest through consistent hair care and salon visits will help you looking exquisite.
Icon hair and makeup Artistry understands that some brides desire an exceptionally glamorous look, while others prefer a natural minimal makeup look.

Bridesmaids and flower girls
On the day of your event, we will do a verbal run through with everyone receiving services. This will help us determine the appropriate needs and services to ensure everyone gets done in a professional and timely manner.
As for the younger members of your party, after a consult with the bride, the parents and of course the young lady herself, we will be happy to provide them with the same professional services as the rest of the bridal party. All makeup and hair will always be age appropriate.
Mothers of the Bride & Groom
While the bride and groom will be the main focus on their wedding day, their parents and in particular the mothers of the bride and groom will also be in the limelight. On such a momentous occasion every mother will want to look her most fabulous and stylish.
As we all know, over time our shape and natural colouring changes and your son or daughter’s wedding is the perfect occasion to discover the colours and styles that are most flattering on you.
Include Lash Extensions in your Bridal Makeup and mesmerize your husband-to-be with gorgeous eyes. Mascara goes so far to thicken and lengthen your lashes but with lovely lash extensions – he won’t be able to take his eyes off you.
Lashes are always included for the bride. We use individual lashes for a more natural, airy feel. Strips are available by special request but are not recommended for all events as they are heavier and harder to wear for an extended period of time.
Lashes can be provided for members of the bridal party for an additional fee.
Our Spray Tanning gives excellent all over body coverage with a natural sun-kissed colouring. Our professional tanning technician uses quality spray tanning products from Techno tan that produce excellent tanning results. It is recommended that tan is booked 2-3 days prior to the wedding.
