Now onto our favourite wedding or event nail looks! Traditionally, brides would often be seen with a French gel manicure. A French manicure, or pink and white (in the acrylic world..!!), is typically when the tip of the nail is white, while the base is sheer pink or clear. No don’t get us wrong. We LOVE and absolutely adore French nails! But sometimes… it’s just not enough!

French manicures are super classy and neat, essential for the modern business woman. But it doesn’t always suit everybody! For those with a smaller nail bed, getting french nails may shorten the appearance of your nails- leaving them looking stubby. For those who do enjoy wearing gel extensions, but again, have a small nail bed, getting a french extension manicure may mean getting uneven nails! No! Not uneven like bumpy- but uneven in the sense that the white part of the nail may overpower the clear, since all of the white is supposedly the extension.

So now what? No French? What else is the perfect wedding nail manicure? Don’t you worry– Prép has come together and have created a little combo of some of OUR favourite takes on the wedding day perfect nails!

Bridal Lash Extensions Vancouver | Prép Beauty Parlour

By | Eyelash Extensions, Lash Care, On Location, Prép Beauty Parlour, Weddings | No Comments

Lash extensions make wedding prép easy and looks effortless during your honeymoon! Haven’t had lashes before but are curious about how it works?

If you have not had lash extensions before we do recommend coming in 1 month prior and receiving a new set of lashes, then booking a lash fill approximately 3-4 days prior to wedding (or a week max if leaving before hand for destination wedding) incase you would like to make your set more dramatic or less!

We offer 3 different Full lash set’s including classic, mixed and 3D/ russian volume… Confused on which is best? Well there is no right or wrong answer, begin with picking a full-ness (classic is 1 lash per natural lash, 3D/ russian volume is 3 lashes per natural lash and a mixed set is a mix of classic & 3d/russian volume). Once you have picked how full you would like the lashes to be book in for that set, when you come in for your appointment you will customize the length, shape and thickness of the lashes with your master lash tech from Prép Beauty Parlour!

We suggest taking a few screen shots of lashes you like from our Instagram photos and bringing those in with you for your consultation. Do you have sensitive skin or are prone to allergic reactions? Don’t worry.. We offer FREE ALLERGY TESTING! An allergy test takes roughly 5-10 minutes, a master lash tech will apply some adhesive to your skin or a gel pad if needed. Wait 24 hours then call us to either make an appointment or if any type of reaction occurs to come in and have it checked.

Our beautiful bride Flore-Anne married the love of her life Maurits on Saturday, April 9th 2016 at the Creekside Community Centre in Olympic Village, Vancouver. Our wedding Prép team started very in the morning and consisted of Mika, Faye, Lisa, Crystal and Candice.

First-Look before the wedding

Can you believe these two love birds met online? Meeting online has become a very common and popular way to meet your soulmate now-a-day’s, wouldn’t you like to meet your soulmate today if you haven’t already?

Love at first sight

Flore-Anne wore a unconventional and stunning pink wedding dress with gorgeous bow detailing. Her flower crown was something out of a fairy tale! Hair piece and flower crowns were carefully placed by us before Mika started on her timeless bridal makeup application. Her new husband was sporting a stylish grey and white pin-stripe Tux with white accent pocket square, all in all, it’s a match made in heaven!

We can’t forget about her guardian angels (Bridesmaids)! All 8 bridesmaids wore different floral dresses that complimented the brides wedding dress, the wedding arch was decorated in fun white, pink, yellow and orange flowers and even the officiant was in on the theme!

Here are some highlights from their floral fairytale…

     Congratulations Flore-Anne & Maurits! We wish you all the best!

Top 5 Ways To Prép For your Dream Wedding With Prép Beauty Parlour

By | Eyelash Extensions, Makeup, On Location, Photography, Prép Beauty Parlour, Weddings | No Comments

Here are the Top 5 ways to prép for your dream wedding with Prép Beauty Parlour!

1.Facials As Early As Possible
A smooth and clear complexion is a must have on your wedding day! This look is completely achievable with a custom Eminence facial treatment; we recommend changing your skin routine at least 1 month prior to the wedding date. It is very important to keep your skin hydrated and protected from the sun with a minimum SPF of 15-30.

choco-facial2. Picture Ready Lash Extensions
Go for a natural or dramatic look with lash extensions by one of our master lash techs at Prép! Classic lashes (1 lash per natural lash except baby hair) are perfect to start. If you prefer more volume or a more dramatic look you have the option to fill them in with Russian volume before the big day.

3. Custom Sculptured gel nails
Every bride needs the perfect set of nails for those wedding ring close ups! If you have soft nails gel overlay (sculptured gel extensions) are highly recommended otherwise if your nails are strong, healthy and are you’re preferred length already then going with a gel polish manicure may be the way to go. You can customize your manicure with art, Swarovski crystals, chrome or a classic french to match your wedding theme.

4. Wax Everything
Never waxed before but want to give it a try? Start out with a french bikini leaving you shaped and clean without all the extra hassle or go full out with a brazilian. Eyebrow shaping will make or break your wedding day makeup, we suggest booking a few days before the wedding to make sure any redness has subsided. Don’t forget to take advantage of our upper lip & eyebrow shaping special ONLY $28! PS: Add a brow/lash tint for easy honey moon brow care.

download5. Bridal Packages For The Big Day
Book hair & makeup in advance as all of our professional hair/makeup artists are high in demand! Our most requested package is “The Complete Bride Package” which includes trials, strip/cluster lashes and of course hair and makeup on the big day. In case you didn’t know; you can add lash extensions into your package instead of strip/cluster lashes, our Prép team can travel to you as well if your wedding is not in downtown!
