Book regular skin treatments. Facials, chemical peels and microdermabrasion can rejuvenate and freshen up your look before the big day! If your skin concerns require addressing sun damage, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, redness, or broken capillaries, then one of these services may be meant for you – they’re all focused on the preservation of healthy skin cells and protection and minimizing the visible signs of photodamaged skin.

Book a facial. Try out any of Jose Luis Salon‘s vast variety of facials to relax and treat yourself! Their services range anywhere between 30 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes, so reaching peak relaxation is bound to happen, and you can get your skin glowing and wedding-ready in the process!

Get a blowout. Having someone else tame your mane is one of the most relaxing ways to treat yourself. Cute curls, beautiful braids, whimsical waves and so many more options await you, so have fun with it! You can even allow yourself to drift off into a little power nap while your hairstylist makes the magic happen (we promise we won’t tell). The team at Level 12 Salon will take care of all your hair needs! Pop in for a pick-me-up blowout for gorgeous hair without ever lifting a finger or opt for a blowdry and style for a little something extra!

Get a makeover for a night out. Makeup takes so many forms in this day and age but one thing that will never change about it is how good it feels to put it on and look absolutely bomb! A makeover can change your life, and your whole attitude – just ask Mia Thermopolis, Princess of Genovia. Artistee Lane Studio proudly provides modern yet timeless, custom makeup for the glam (or subtle glam) look of your dreams! Allow a member of their detail-oriented team of professional artists to bring your personal makeup vision to life while performing at the highest level of sanitation!
