Galindo’s Wedding Hair And Makeup Tips

“Not just my wedding but the experience of getting ready for it was enhanced by working with JV and Crystal.. They both brought smiles, laughter, and professionalism to my wedding day. JV manages to be both wildly fun and comforting while maintaining the attitude and skills of the consummate professional. With Crystal as his talented and lovely assistant, our bridal party, ranging in ages from 9 to 91, looked and, more importantly, felt beautiful and confident. As the bride, JV immediately realized the vision I had for myself on my wedding day and even managed to help button up a wedding gown with about 40 tiny buttons down its back!”~ Mollie G.

Featured Bride On Cover Of FLORIDA WEDDINGS Magazine: Hair and Makeup By JV Galindo

Here comes the bride…

Calming a bride’s nerves on her wedding day is no easy feat.  But JV Galindo, Brazilian celebrity hair stylist, manages to do just that, every single time he gets hired.  When Galindo is not  traveling to style famous Brazilian singer Simone’s hair, he specializes in bridal hairstyles and glamorous airbrush makeup for weddings.
JV has over twenty years of experience and valuable advice to offer future brides.  Below, JV answers the five most important questions every bride should ask her stylist to ensure a happy and stress free wedding.

When and how should a bride choose her hairstyle?

A bride’s most important accessory is her hairstyle.
Once you select your dress, don’t leave it for the last-minute to decide on your hairstyle, that never works well.  Bring pictures to the stylist of you wearing your wedding dress.  Experiment and try a few different styles.  Take pictures of each one and decide which hairstyle complements your dress the best.

What are the latest bridal hairstyles trends?

Stiff updos or tight buns are dated. Try an avant-garde updo that is soft and slightly deconstructed instead. Think loose, romantic hair.  You can never go wrong with a flowing half-updo.  Big, polished, elegant curls are timeless and always right for a bride. Braids have been a huge trend on the runway and are a sure way to wow your guests; but remember, it is always easier to see an intricate braid on lighter and blonde hair than on dark hair.

Hair Accessories: To Wear Or Not To Wear?

 It depends on your dress, whether you have a veil, and on the kind of hairstyle you choose. 
Rule of thumb: The more elaborate the dress, the simpler the hair accessory.  However, adding fresh flowers to your hairstyle is a sophisticated alternative.  For example, have your stylist weave some beautiful wild blue flowers into your locks — for something blue!

How about makeup? What must-have do you recommend?

Two most important must-have for your wedding day are: airbrush makeup and faux eyelashes.  Airbrush makeup gives you a flawless complexion, stays fresh all day and looks better in pictures.  I like to add individual eyelashes for the day, they look so natural and do wonders for you.
However, if you are looking for a more permanent solution, I encourage you to try the NovaLash eyelash extensions.   NovaLash is a professional eyelash extension system that lasts up to six weeks and  you’ll look gorgeous on your honeymoon.  No mascara necessary!

If you could give three tips to brides, what would they be?

No tanning, no facials and no hair changes right before the wedding.  
Tanning is a really bad idea because it never looks natural in the pictures. No facial treatment of any sort four weeks before the big day.  Gentle hydrating  and exfoliating masks are okay, but only the ones that your skin is familiar with.  Get your highlights or any hair color services done two weeks before your wedding.  Exception: if you have excessive gray hair, do your usual root touch-up five days before your wedding day. Never do a drastic haircut before your wedding. Get a hair trim three or four weeks before.
