Any cool ideas of what to wear for my hair and make-up appointments? I’ve seen cute robes and stuff, but my girls and I will be going to a downtown salon and I wouldn’t be caught dead in anything resembling pyjamas there! Just looking for suggestions beyond a basic button-down shirt. Thanks!

I wore a tank top under my robe with leggings. I needed something comfy and also something easy to take off once everything was done. I suggest comfortable clothes that can go over your head easily so if it isnt a button-up shirt then I would do a wifebeater or t-shirt. THey have cute bridal ones at Vickies, Etsy, online, etc.

I wore a tropical print sundress that I could step in and out of rather than pull over my head. Really, anything that you don’t have to pull over your head would work.

Definitely something that you don’t have to pull over your head. You could totally find a cute tank top and wear it with a maxi skirt or something, or as a PP said a comfy dress that you can step in to. Just be comfortable!

I wore a stretchy tank top that I practiced pulling off first to make sure I wouldnt mess anything up.

My hair/makeup artist had a cool little strapless robe thing that she snapped on us. It worked great because she air brushed my chest, neck and arms very lightly so I looked tan.

Toronto2014: I was a BM in a friend’s wedding and she had all the girls wear white button-downs so you could take them off without ruining the hair and makeup, but we all looked coordinated. I was very grateful she didn’t put us in robes since the wedding was in Vegas and we were running downstairs to take care of stuff while we were waiting for our turn.

Toronto2014: We went to Old Navy and got some comfortable, but strapless sundresses and maxi dresses. That way they didn’t go over our heads, but we still looked nice.

Great ideas, thanks! I think a maxi dress will be just right 🙂
