I Do! A Guide To Pinup’s Bridal Services

We know it sounds early, but wedding season is already gearing up! We’ve been getting calls for brides setting the dates for their hair and makeup services, so we thought we would take a moment to explain a little further what services we offer for brides, and bridal parties.

First off, with our bridal hair services, we always include a trial run, for every client. Why is a trial run necessary? It helps with ease of mind not only for the bride but also for the stylist! We’re all very seasoned in a wide variety of updo styling, from the classic Pinup sets, to the artistic and avant-garde, to loose beachy styles, and everything in between. Since all hair types and textures are unique, it’s important for us to know how cooperative your hair will be with your desired style, and the best products and tools to use, insuring your hair will hold up throughout the day and night! When a bride leaves after her trial run, she can let us know if the style held up or not, so that we can easily adjust our approach for her wedding day as needed.

Never learned how to use hairspray? You’re not alone!

With prom and wedding season upon us here at Pinup, I wanted to talk a little about our Pravana Super Shape Hairspray! If you are anything like I used to be, the idea of using hairspray day to day sounds ridiculous.

The keys to success with...
