A recent newlywed herself, we can not think of a better Bridal Coordinator to care for the needs of our Bridal Clients than Brittany Wasilefsky! She is a consummate professional, grasps the ins and outs of the beauty industry and knows the salon and its professionals, so she can direct our Brides to the right people for their services.
She’s also a long standing and very integral part of our Front Desk team. “I truly enjoy answering phones and greeting customers as they walk in for their appointments,” she explains. “I am one of the first interactions with our customers and love to share my enthusiasm for the beauty industry to help create an enjoyable experience here at our salon.”
Brittany’s most high profile bridal assignment so far this year was to help Fox 10 Morning Anchor Kristin Anderson’s Mom get ready for the newswoman’s wedding at Power Ranch’s The Barn in Gilbert, Ariz., this April. “She said she never felt so beautiful and was treated like a queen,” says Anderson herself, who also praised Brittany’s choice of stylist, Lindsey Rae Hayes, who did an amazing job!
After recommending our professionals for certain services based on a Bride’s style and needs, Brittany also supplements their professional’s advice on retail choices to help properly prepare them for the big day. Luxe products she thinks every Bride should use: Eminence Organics Eight Greens Phyto Masque! “This masque is fabulous because it does it all! It helps hydration, elasticity, oil production and helps prevent breakouts,”she says. “It’s my go to product before a big night out!”

Sore from working on that bikini body? Once a muscle or joint is injured, regular exercise is typically the key to rehabilitation. But when pain limits a body’s ability to exercise, the healing process takes longer. Biofreeze products help break this pain cycle, by relieving pain through a method known as “Gate Control,” or “gating.” In the gating process, menthol acts to stimulate specific sensory receptors in the skin, thereby blocking other receptors from sending pain signals to the brain. Biofreeze products provide temporary relief from minor aches and pains of sore muscles and joints associated with simple backache, arthritis, bruises, strains and sprains. Biofreeze Pain Reliever may be used up to four times a day – both before exercise or therapy (to relieve painful movement), and afterwards (to soothe muscle or joint soreness).
Try the Salon Product of the Month: MoroccanOil and receive 5% off, or 15% total if you also check in on Facebook during your purchase!
Award winning, hair phenomenon MoroccanOil is a unique, ultra-light formula which is absorbed by the hair instantly, resulting in a natural, silky finish and brilliant shine. MoroccanOil has the ability to restore over-processed hair damaged by environmental factors and chemical procedures – it also revives, hydrates and detangles hair and hair extensions. For hundreds of years Argan oil has been used by women in Morocco to treat hair and nails in order to counteract the effects of the hot climate. Apply this miraculous oil to wet hair for quicker drying results!
Fine print: All offers expire September 30, 2012. Specials may not be combined with other offers (except where mentioned above) and must be mentioned at time of booking. Offers only good while appointments still available on the books — no rain checks. Call Luxe to schedule your appointment at 480-209-1659!
If you are getting married in the next year, one of the major things to put on your “To Do” list is probably checking into skincare regimens. Many Brides tell us they know they will be looking at pictures and video of this day for many years to come, so they want to put their bast face forward. Drug store products just won’t cut it in most cases. In this case, we offer our Brides Dermalogica’s Wedding Booklet. Glowing skin doesn’t happen overnight! Download it here for FREE from Dermalogica by clicking this link: The Dermalogica Wedding Booklet.
We are proud to share this collection “Tried and True” Bridal advice we’ve learned over the years to make you feel more comfortable, look better and feel amazing on your special day!
4-6 Mo. Out: Get FREE Face Mapping done at Luxe to get prescription for Cleanser, Eye Cream and All Over Moisturizer. Start on exfolliants: Micro Derms and/or Chemicals Peels as prescribed by esthetician.
1 Mo. Out: Start Hydrating Facials, drink 8 glasses of water daily, cut back on caffeine and alcohol to keep skin hydrated.
Trial Day: No toners or moisturizers, come with a clean face. Bring photos of looks you like so the artist can get a sense of your style and bring photos of your self in makeup that you like as well.
Day of Wedding: Wash skin but skip toners, moisturizer and other products (like sunscreen) that will be between skin and makeup for better, long lasting application.
“Day Of” keep in your purse: Blotting sheets (designed to absorb oil or sweat without removing makeup) and a lip gloss/stick.
Natural Nails: We suggest our Brides (and Attendants) use one of our gel polish lines on fingers and toes (especially if the honeymoon is someplace sandy that grinds polish down) because it stays “fresh” looking longer, even into the honeymoon. This service can be done in advance to help ease the last minute rush. Brides who prefer regular polish should have services the “day of” or at longest the day before their event. Our Professional Nail Techs provide Brides with tips to make fingers and toes look fresh the day of the wedding and into the honeymoon in this case.
Gel Enhancements: These can be done in advance, but no more than a few days, especially if the bride has very short nails or no nail tips to work with. Again, we’ll provide the Bride with tips to make fingers and toes look fresh the day of the wedding and into the honeymoon. Gel Fills require the same timing as a new set.
4-6 Mo. Out: Talk with your stylist about your ideas for how you’d like to wear your hair on your Wedding Day. Discuss extensions, color, style. Start with deep conditioning treatments at the salon.
1 Mo. Out/Trial Day: Come with clean hair. Make sure to get a deep conditioning treatment at the salon and talk with stylist about treatments to use at home weekly.
1-2 weeks: Touch up color and cut; add extensions if chosen.
“Day Of” keep in your purse: Bobby pins, comb, mini hair spray, lipstick.
Other Services to Consider:
Waxing (should be done 3-5 days before Wedding)
Massage (helps keep stress at bay; a few days before Wedding)

A Villa Siena Wedding
We loved having Bride Lacey (now) Mercer in our salon with her skilled and friendly photographer Brianne Nichole and family. A gorgeous bride, Lacey knew from the start exactly what she wanted to look like and Stylist/Wedding Team member Patricia Delmar delivered a knockout look. As they say, pictures are worth 1,000 words and you can find some of the amazing photos below and the rest on Brianne Nichole’s Blog.
Have you met Patricia D.? Our newest Level One Stylist was attracted to the beauty industry when she looked through a wedding magazine and saw all of the beauty ads and references filling up the pages. She loved the industry so much, she had her cosmetology license before she’d even graduated high school.
When she’s not working on her Business Communication and Spanish degrees at ASU, she’s playing coed softball and building up a portfolio of gorgeous looks that show her mad skills behind a pair a scissors, as well as in the color room.
So as they like to say, you can get in on the ground floor of a promising new career and SAVE! From June 1st-July31st, if you come in to Luxe for your first time and request Patricia, you’ll get a FREE haircut with any color service OR 20% off ANY single hair service.
Pics: Our new Front Desk specialist, Hannah Spehar, went from a faded red to a beautiful blonde for summer time! Earlier this year Patricia did gorgeous hair for a gorgeous bride, Lacey Mercer and Her Mr. Mercer. More photos will be up this week on our Bridal Blog showcasing the photography of Brianne Nichole (thanks Brianne for letting us feature them!)

Severson is the only contestant from Arizona who made it into the semi-finals and was one of four contestants with the most votes at the end of the voting period. She just returned from an all-expense paid trip to New York City where she received $1,000 from Sally Hansen to be donated to the charity of her choice, a full-service Glamour makeover, and was photographed for a Sally Hansen ad portfolio in an upcoming issue of Glamour.
Once you read about the organization, it will be of little surpass to learn that Severson won the contest and the organization will be celebrating her win later this summer with a special event MORE TO COME!
