Your wedding clients come to you because they know they can count on you to help them achieve that glowing, radiant look on their big day.
And it makes sense, right? You’re the best in the biz, and good at what you do. When it comes to helping clients craft top-notch skincare routines and creating stunning faces, there’s no one better.
But we’ve got a question for you–when was the last time you took a look at your wedding/special event service list to review it? Listen, we get it–you’ve got staples for a reason. We’re not asking you to throw out your tried-and-true methods. If your clients are looking for glowing, hydrated, skin on their big day, you might want to regularly take a look at your offerings and ask, “what can I add to this list?”
Why? You’ll be able to provide services for more people, you’ll be able to broaden your offerings, and you can bring some modern, techy approaches to wedding or special event skincare like never before. And trust us, your clients will thank you for it.
So, where do you start? Read on for a few suggestions we’re sure you’re going to want to tack on to your repertoire asap.
Must-Add Facials for Weddings & Special Events
Brides, grooms, wedding party, commitment ceremonies, whoever they are, they’re all after the same thing: an amazing look on the big day. And, of course, skincare is a big part of that. As an esthetician, you know everyone’s skin is different, meaning clients will benefit from a prescribed facial that’s right for them. Naturally not every person you treat will require one of these facials, but these are some common, advantageous facials that are a must-consider for your wedding service list.
We love any opportunity to talk about color light therapy. With a few different LED wavelengths, this mild but effective treatment offers your clients a boost in natural cell turnover, the chance to kill more acne-causing bacteria, and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
The best part about this facial? We already gave you a hint, but we’ll just give you the answer–it’s mild. You can offer this to your clients days before their event without risk of irritation, peeling, or reactions. We love this one for wedding clients because it offers all the benefits without the risk factors.
Remove that outermost layer of dead skin in a twinkling with a microdermabrasion facial. What’s the goal? You can reduce the appearance of fine lines and dull wrinkles, mitigate acne scarring, and remove that outer layer harboring hyperpigmentation. What lies beneath is glowing, fresh, and renewed skin - the ideal look for a wedding day.
Gentle, mild, and healing, an oxygen facial is a perfect option for someone with sensitive skin that’s literally looking for a morning-of glow. What will you get from this facial? A bright, soft, and glowing look. What won’t you get? The risk of irritation, inflammation, swelling, or redness.
Chemical Peel Facial
We’re adding this one to the list with a few caveats. First, let’s talk about the benefits.
A chemical peel (when executed correctly) can give your clients the glowing skin results they’re after. Chemical peels are the go-to for cellular turnover, boosting hydration, and getting rid of discoloration. That said, this is a facial you need to help your clients prepare for. A chemical involves some pretty heavy peeling and puts your client’s skin at greater risk for sun irritation and damage.
This is not a facial to offer a few days before the wedding. We’re talking about weeks or maybe even months. It will provide significant benefits for your clients on their wedding day, but it’s a strategic facial that needs to be planned for in advance.
Pro-tip: If your client will be in primarily in the sun on their wedding trip, you’ll want to take this into account before you suggest a peel.
What’s the one thing no one wants on their wedding day? Blemishes or breakouts.
So that’s exactly when your clients are more likely to break out (stress, big life changes, diet changes, and more factors contribute). Help your clients combat this with a high-frequency facial.
This type of facial uses a high-frequency wand or machine to literally zap away the bacteria that are living on your clients’ skin.
The result? A substantial reduction in p.acnes bacteria, reduction in inflammation, and a boost in collagen production.
These go-to facials are sure to help your wedding clients find that supple, soft, and stunning skin they're looking for on their big day.
