THE BIG DAY Bridal Party Formal Hair Styling, Bridal Party Make-up Application- RELAX AND ENJOY the most amazing day of your life!
Instead of hopping from salon to salon for your pre-wedding beauty treatments, head to La Jolie Salon on the corner of Witherspoon and Hulfish St. and have all your professional services done under one roof in charming downtown Princeton. Our Bridal Team offers a variety of comprehensive wedding party packages that include eyebrow shaping, waxing, professional make-up enhancement, special event hairstyling and even stress-relieving back massages!
Five to six months before the big day is the perfect time to start working on your skin. On your wedding day, you’ll be having your picture taken close-up and many people getting close to your face as they hug and kiss you. Even a relatively nice complexion can benefit from six months of stress-relief, proper nutrition, and added water-drinking. We recommend scheduling a complimentary professional skin-care consultation and an all natural Aveda mini facial.
Don’t forget about your bridesmaids! Brides want their girls to look and feel their best on their wedding day too. We suggest scheduling the entire wedding party to join you in preparing for the big event. Celebrate with an organic sparkling cider toast!
Instead of pinning down your bridesmaids and waxing them one by one we would like to invite you to a fun and relaxing bridal party ‘day at the Café La Jolie’ to get your gals groomed.
We offer different packages to suit all your needs no matter how large or small your wedding party. Enhance your pampering with a refreshing back rub and some european snacks and treats for your entire wedding party, artfully prepared by Princeton’s Zagat Rated Underground Café.
Finally, remember to relax! A relaxed bride is a beautiful bride. Allow our bridal team and salon professionals to take care of you and all your beauty needs. Also remember, practice makes perfect. Be sure to schedule a trial run with our hairstylists and make-up artists several months before the wedding and again a few days before the big day to ensure you are getting the look you want and there are no surprises the day of the ceremony.
For the Groom
1.Eyebrow Waxing/Threading Eyebrows make a world of difference. Our team of beauty experts suggest the groom and groom’s men remove, trim and reshape those bushy caterpillars! Organic eyebrow waxing or threading is recommended one week before the wedding, incase of possible irritation.
2.Facial Your wedding is a good excuse as any for him to start a proper skin-care routine. An Aveda skincare mini facial is an excellent way to get the ball rolling for a clear & beautiful complexion.
3.Shave For the smoothest skin ever we recommend you invest in a professional straight razor shave with an emollient-rich shaving cream like Aveda’s Men Shave Cream which is rich in conditioners-including peppermint, lavender and aloe, which cushions skin and provides easy razor glide. Helps prevent nicks, dryness and irritations.
4.Haircut And the grand finale, two weeks before the big day we recommend shaping up his shaggy mane into a dashing, fresh and clean style. We also suggest using a soothing shampoo and conditioner for a healthy scalp and hair growth Like Aveda Men Pure-Formance collection which, features a clinically-proven plant blend developed exclusively for men’s needs.
