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.

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!

Everyone’s results may vary based on factors such as age, health and application efficiency. You may also achieve different results due to genetics, or if you are taking medication that affects your hormones. Typically most individuals start seeing results within 4-6 weeks, full results are achieved within 3 months. After daily use of EyEnvy for 3 months we recommend applying our conditioner every other day and for sensitive eyes apply the conditioner every third day.

A high percentage of irritation for most clients is due to overuse or over application of the product. If mild or moderate redness or irritation occurs, discontinue use of the product at least temporarily until symptoms resolve.

Vancouver’s Prép Beauty Parlour is now offering Lash Lifts!

Vancouver eyelash lift before and after

You ever wish you could wake up in the morning and skip the mascara and eyelash curling? You know, maybe cut your morning routine in half by not having to shimmy your mascara wand through your lashes to get them perfect? Well here at Prep we have you covered; not only do we have our eyelash extensions service, we are now offering Lash Lifts!

Imagine waking up with naturally long lashes! Without the exhausting coats of mascara and efforts curling the lashes just to realize you’ve missed all the baby lashes on the side! Ugh! For those Prép ladies who are wanting a more subtle look without wearing false strip lashes or eyelash extensions, Prép has special little secret to share! Come a little closer..

img_8931Some of you ladies may know what I’m talking about when I say I suffer with “straight lash syndrome”. Warning!!  This is a very serious topic! I have been cursed with a SERIOUS birth beauty defect! Being half Asian and all… My mother is Japanese and also has very straight but fabulously thick lashes. What do we do about this? We use eyelash curlers and pray that the room isn’t too humid to have them fall back down again immediately after… We have tried everything, from heating the eyelash curler with a hair dryer, to using an actual heated lash curler, but still no staying power… Not to worry!  I was blessed to have found this fabulous (not new) invention, call the LASH LIFT!

What’s this I speak of? This “LASH LIFT” is a quick and painless way to temporarily to semi-permanently curl your natural lashes! Wear less makeup, and just add mascara if you want to thicken up! No need for eyelash extensions but can always add extensions for the extra va-va-voom and curl if desired!

We start the lash lift process by adding a gel pad to the bottom baby lashes to ensure they don’t run off! Just kidding! We do this with eyelash extensions as well! Now to determine the curve of the lashes, we have structured and curved silicon pads that are placed on the eyelid. These curved pads come in a variety of sizes and slopes to make for different lash curl looks. This is similar to the different curls of eyelash extensions we offer (B, D, C, etc). The larger the raise on the silicon pad, the larger the curve of the lashes, meaning that if you go for a smaller raised bump on the pad, you will have more lift. Our Prép technician will carefully observe and select the correct size so you leave with the look you desire! Gently lifting the top lashes,  we adhere the lashes to the curve of the pad.  After the lashes are adhered to the curve, your Prép technician will then apply a perm gel as well as setting or top gel so your lashes stay freshly curled for 6-8 weeks!

The whole process takes about an hour from start to finish, and lasts about 6-8 weeks! Imagine your naturally thick full lashes, actually being curled as well, so every morning you wake up and see your pretty peepers staring back at you. Why not add a tint as well to the lash lift, so not only are your eyelashes beautifully curled, but dark and full as well? Ugh, why didn’t I know about this when I was in high school and learned the hard way that using an eyelash curler at 5 in the morning very tired and shaky could result in ripping out half of your natural lashes?!
