Bridal Hair and Makeup in Houston

Like most girls, you too may have dreamt about your wedding while you were still little . . . the kind of dress you would be wearing, the place where you will be wedded, how beautiful you would look, and how perfect your husband will be.

Well, of course, you know that, come that day, more than on your husband to be, all eyes will rather be on you, staring at, and staring again, at three very important things: your dress, your hair and your make up.

Some brides want to think of themselves as knowledgeable in makeup application and hair styling, thus, they do most of these things on their own or with the help of a friend or kin. One thing you should know, however, is to never make this mistake.

Your Wedding Day is one of the most important days of your life. But, however you would want to look, with a touch of glamor or simplicity, the best way is to leave it to the experts – people who have been trained in bridal hair and makeup.

On its website, Therapy Salon explains that bridal hair and makeup should not only be beautiful, memorable and flawless, but should also be able to endure the weather, especially if you are planning for a wedding outdoors.

While some salons will leave you at the hands of any of its hair-stylists and makeup artists who, like a general surgeon able to treat a wide range of illnesses, would claim being knowledgeable in all kinds of hair styles or makeup artistry, respectively, well-established and trusted salons have trained and certified experts who handle certain types of hair styles or makeup. This is to make sure that you look your absolute best on this extremely special occasion.

Therefore, rather than have your hair lose its style during the so many hugs and kisses after the ceremony (long before the dancing part) or suffer the embarrassment of your face slipping off because the primer, setting powder, foundation, blush, mascara, and eye shadow used were not budge-proof, why not go to the experts. Your wedding may last only for a few hours, but the pictures which will capture just how beautiful or “not so beautiful” you are will last forever.

Breast Augmentation: Is this Procedure Right for You?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the total count of breast augmentation procedures performed in the US in 2014 was 286,254. Breast augmentation, clinically called augmentation mammoplasty, which has been the number one cosmetic surgical procedure in the US since 2005, is the surgical placement of implants in a woman’s breasts. It is intended to improve/restore symmetry or increase fullness of the breasts, enlarge naturally small breasts, or restore breast volume which is greatly affected by pregnancy, weight reduction, breast cancer surgery or mastectomy. Besides these reconstructive or medical reasons, there are also personal ones which make some women decide to undergo the procedure, like the desire to look younger, boost their self-esteem, boost their sex life and, according to some, to make their clothes fit better.

Augmenting the breasts may be done through the use of implants that are placed under the breast tissue or chest muscles. Implants, which last about 10 years, has an outer layer that is made of firm silicone, while its inside may be filled with silicone gel, saline solution or salt water, or a composite of alternative substances.

On its website, Bergman and Folkers Plastic Surgery mentions how highly individualized a procedure breast augmentation is; however, though it can be performed for corrective purposes, it cannot correct pendulous or sagging breasts. To restore the youthful firmness and shape of breasts, breast mastopexy or a breast lift will first be required; only after this breast lift may breast augmentation be performed.

Despite some of the risks associated with breast augmentation procedures (the fact is, any surgical procedure poses some kind of risk), this type of cosmetic surgery is safe, thus, the more than quarter of a million women undergoing it every year.

However, before finally deciding whether one should undergo breast augmentation and which implant to choose, it is necessary to discuss things first with your trained and certified cosmetic surgeon, especially if one wants it simply because she wants to look better and she has seen how the procedure has really had great results in others.
