Being a beauty editor at BRIDES means spending much of our days checking out all of the new hair, skin, and makeup products months before they hit the shelves. (We know, tough job right?) So let's just say: We've seen it all. And now we want you to see it all, too! Each week, we'll bring you a few of our favorite finds perfect for a bride-to-be! Here's what we're obsessed with right now.
Rpzl: You've heard of blowout bars, right? We're obsessed. Well, now here's a fresh twist on the concept: Rpzl, a new salon in New York City, is a blowout and extensions bar. Designed to demystify and simplify the process, the salon offers three types of customized extensions: clip-ins (which can be removed and reused again and again), as well as "tape" and keratin extensions (both of which are more of a commitment — and more expensive). They specialize in brides (yay!), so if you live in NYC and are looking to get longer, fuller hair for your wedding, definitely check them out.
Korres Mandarin Butter Sticks: These easy-to-use tinted balms give your lips the perfect hint of color. We especially love Purple (a deep berry-plum) and Peach (a sheer orange) — both are so fun for spring and summer. ($16.50, available at Sephora)
R + Co Rockaway Salt Spray: We love the idea of beachy waves for an outdoor wedding or even a post-wedding brunch. What we don't love: The crunchiness that often comes with them. Enter this salt spray, which creates soft, gorgeous, touchable texture that feels totally light and non-sticky. The fresh scent is amazing, too. ($25, available at R + Co)
