We cannot get enough of braided updos for brides right now.

We cannot get enough of braided updos for brides right now.

For every updo that I’ve ever had done in my life, there has been a scene of crying, bobby-pin yanking, and hair washing that follows shortly after. Just ask my mother; I’ve never once left a salon satisfied with the stiff, curly mess that was created with my otherwise pin-straight hair.

More and more good news for brides just keep spilling out of Philly’s Rescue Spa!

First, fabulous Philly makeup artist Victoria Roggio joined the staff just a few months before they moved from their 17th Street location to their new 16th Street digs—into a location that, because it’s so much roomier, meant that the spa could better host bridal parties. (Expanded mani, pedi and lounge areas make it easier for you and your ‘maids to spread out while sipping champagne and being pampered, obv.)

We’ve talked before about how impressed we always are with brides who do their own hair on their wedding day—first, with how brave they are to tackle that particular task on that particular day, and second, with the skill set it actually takes to create a hairstyle deserving of your wedding day all by yourself.

And because of that, we are always on the lookout for inspiration that we can pass along. (And for those of you who are more like me, so that you can, you know, pass it along to the professional hairstylist who you will pay to make you pretty on your Big Day.)

The new Rittenhouse location of Lacquer Lounge is open for business.

Yesterday, our friends over at Shoppist have informed us, Philly nail salon Lacquer Lounge opened their brand new Rittenhouse location! The satellite location has a few more nail stations and foot baths than their Queen Village original, and a few new services—some of which involve tasty treats from next door neighbor Pure Fare. (Here are all the deets.)

But obviously, the first thing we picture when we hear about a fab new nail salon is a group of ladies—a bride and her bridesmaids, say—sipping champagne and getting primped before heading out to a wedding-related soiree. So of course, we had to check and see what Lacquer’s offerings would be for brides.
