1 year prior to the wedding date -- YOU’RE ENGAGED, YAY! LET'S GET STARTED!
First things first, upgrade your lashes!
We have luxury NovaMINX lash extensions and NEW Keratin Lash Infusion Lift & Tint
With so many upcoming events and photos, it's time to call Uptown Charm and schedule your custom lash appointment
A great complexion comes from drinking lots of water and from inside your estheticians room!
Now is the time to start thinking about your skin. You don't want to get a peel or new facial right before your wedding as it may cause breakouts and flare ups.
Create a relationship with one of our estheticians and together we will set up an alternating schedule of facial services every 4 - 8 weeks based on your skin concerns and get you on a good home care regimen to ensure your best complexion
We offer Dermaplaning + HydraSilk, Green Herbal Peels, Custom Facials and Chemical Peels
Another option is At Home Facials created just for you and delivered to your door. Check out our Beauty Box Subscription
Makeup only looks as good as its foundation, so get your skin smooth and bright and ALWAYS treat your decollete and neck the same as your face! Your wedding dress neckline will show this area off.

It’s time to start including monthly peels or facials
Green Peel Level 2 ~ radiance (recommended 3 months before wedding date) The Radiance peel is purely plant based and a milder method of the green peel skin resurfacing treatment. You’ll need just a couple days of downtime and it continues to rebuild collagen and tightens skin for 4 - 6 weeks after treatment.
Medical grade facials (PCA) allow your skin to experience two types of exfoliation with some friendly acids: lactic, salicylic and glycolic & natural enzymes to ensure a smooth texture. This facial will leave your skin smooth, hydrated and your complexion glowing.
PRO TIP: add a Glycolic Peel to your facial for derm - renewal and better absorption of brightening and correcting serums

Brazilian, Brows on Fleek, & Bronzed!
These are your 3 B’s to prep for your killer bachelorette party!
Brazilian: Known as the ‘playboy’ this waxing technique removes all hair from the entire bikini area. It's the cleanest and barest of all. The results last 3 to 4 weeks. Hair must be 1/4 inch long to be effectively removed. Hard and soft waxes used.
Brows on Fleek: Combine a custom color brow tint and a Beautiful Brow service to have perfect eyebrows without constantly cosmetically filling for 4 weeks!
Bronzed: Spray tan! We provide a personalized spray tanning session where a spray tan artist applies a sunless solution to your whole body with an airbrush gun, contouring and highlighting INCLUDED. Darker legs, a lighter face, sculpted abs and more defined arm muscles are a few tricks we have learned to give you a flawless and even tan. Trained to compliment across a broad spectrum of skin shades and tones, results are natural, never orange.
