October is huge for weddings in South Carolina. With sunny skies and a slightly cooler breeze, it is the perfect month to get married–especially outdoors. Here are nine hairstyles we love for weddings–for brides, bridesmaids and guests alike!
We know it’s all about the dress. But the hair can compliment your look to perfection. Here are a few styles we love for 2015 and 2016 brides:
The Classic: This sleek and fuss-free updo is perfect for brides with any neckline who wants to keep her hair away from her face.
The Vintage: This look hearkens back to an older time, perfect for brides who want to add a little nostalgia and romance to the affair.
The Perfectly Swept Wave: This modern look is great for more informal gatherings and will be dance floor perfection.
We love these updated bridesmaid styles. However, it’s always best to ask the bride what she wants for her maids’ looks!
The Big Braid: perfect for an outdoor or boho wedding.
The Knotted Twist: this updated style is great for a more formal gathering in a banquet ballroom. Plus, it won’t go anywhere when you’re shaking your tailfeather with the Best Man.
The Wavy Lob: For a relaxed wedding, you can go for a more relaxed look–just make sure to add some product that shines and smooths.
If you’ve been to a hundred weddings in the last two years, you may be running out of ideas for your hair. Here are some great styles we love!
Rockin’ Fringe: Thick, 70s style bangs are back and we love them for a great wedding look.
The Side Fishtail: This braid looks so much more intricate than it is. Mess it up a little to get that effortlessly chic look.
Parted & Straight: The middle part is still huge for fall and winter, so don’t be afraid to try it out. Just be sure to maintain the volume in your hair to keep it from looking limp.

You’ve probably heard of Aromatherapy and might think it begins and ends with some fragrant candles in your living room. But the truth is that essential oils have been proven to help and heal all sorts of ailments, and at Urban Nirvana, we believe that they enhance our already amazing massages.
LMT Pamela Trotter, who works in our Lexington Day Spa location, believes in the healing properties of Aromatherapy and is here to tell us more:

Back to school is here and although we know it can be sad to leave behind long beach days and nights without homework, it’s also a great time to try out a new look. Here are some cuts and styles we love for the fall:
Go Wild with Color
Think outside the blonde highlights. Instead, opt for a bold color that will really exhibit your personality. Purple and blue are “of the moment” hair colors that we just love, but we can basically do any color of the rainbow, too:
We’re loving this braid (with mermaid color, no less!) for a fresh way to give your look some edge. Balayaged hair looks amazing in braids since it allows people to see all the facets of your color. Try a side fishtail braid like this one for a great class-to-date night look.
Start with a Bang
It’s probably the most asked stylist question of all time: “Do you think I can pull off bangs?” There are different techniques for cutting bangs for every kind of hair type and face shape (wispy, straight, thick, side-swept), so don’t be afraid to experiment!
If Back to School is crazy (because of your kids or your studies), maybe you want to opt for something that takes less thought and upkeep. In that case, give your hair the chop! Simply dry (in a snap), add some product and go:
1. It’s been a long, hot summer
Being outside and in the sun may have taken its toll. Is your skin feeling dry and tight from overwashing? Or maybe you’re suffering from clogged pores due to an overproduction of oil? Come on in for a cooling facial refresh and walk out with a supple, clear complexion.
2. The boss is stressing you out
Are you having a tough time at work? Deadlines got you down? Take solace for over an hour in our dark, cool, relaxing environment. Sip on some cucumber water in your robe and let your aesthetician scrub the stress away.
3. You’re seeing fine lines
No one can stop Father Time, and who would want to? You get better with age! But if the fine lines around your eyes or mouth are starting to bug you, a super moisturizing facial can be just what you need. Try adding on a rehydration treatment to any of your favorite facials.
4. You’re a picker
Are you one of the many women who love to pop zits? It’s incredibly damaging to your skin. If you are seeing white or blackheads crop up, schedule a facial and resist the urge to pick! You risk more pimples, infection and even scarring.
5. You’ve got an event coming up
Want to be photog ready for an event? A facial is a great way to get your skin smooth and healthy for any event. Our expert aestheticians use only the best products with lots of natural goodness designed to rejuvenate your skin – whether it be your face or back!
But who really needs a “reason” to get a facial? If you want to kick back, relax and look as amazing as you feel, then we’re ready to help. Schedule your appointment at any of our Urban Nirvana Day Spa locations today!
