Monday Moments: The Capelli Club

August 10, 2015 / no comments

RSVP is excited to be partners with Ottawa’s, The Capelli Club to make your wedding day that much more dynamic. This one-of-a-kind studio, The Capelli (Italian for Hair) Club was created to offer beauty specialists, artists and designers the venue to practice their art. It is a boutique salon which inspires an innovative approach to hair and make-up while offering clients the additional comforts of a cappucino bar and free WIFI. Their location on 10 Bayswater Avenue uses the best hair products such as KMS California, Elumen and MAC cosmetics or make-up of equal quality such as Dior and Bobby Brown.
    As part of RSVP’s Wedding-in-a-Box package you too can experience the glamour The Capelli Club offers. Close to wedding day, the bride is sent helpful hair and make-up tips to help keep everything on time and beautiful. For example, Capelli recommends providing the plenty of straws for drinking water, coffee etc. to prevent lipstick from rubbing off.
  • To wash your face thoroughly, removing all make-up and eye-liner prior to the appointment and to exfoliate twice the week before to improve the skin’s appearance.
  • For pinned up hair do- it is important that it be washed the night and kept down and loose before a pinned up style as damp hair will create kinks. They find that freshly washed hair is too squeaky clean and doesn’t hold the pins as well.
  • Two other important things to remember- Don’t forget to bring your hairpieces for the Trail J and to bring your own lipstick to the appointment if you plan to touch up throughout the day/evening.

 The Beauty and Hair Specialists at the Capelli Club are happy to provide you with tips and advice during your consultation. They are proud to say that at TCC, “We are all about the details! From the wing of your liquid eye-liner to the fall of that perfect curl…”

June 15, 2015 / no comments

Radha Subramani is one of RSVP’s favourite makeup and hair specialist! She has built quite the name for herself here in Ottawa, as she has a unique technique that remains different from others. Having been branded the queen of giving a flawless complexion, many brides book well in advance to have their makeup & hair done by her. Radka’s talent always leaves each bride feeling radiant and confident as they are now ready to take on their special day!

Since 2010, Radha’s mission has been to bring out each brides inner beauty to make them realize you can look just as amazing in the mirror as you feel inside. For this reason, Radha works with each bride to understand their needs, whether it be new trends or classic elegance, and incorporate them into the perfect look.

For Radha, her dream took off in 2013, when she brought bridal up-do specialist Jane Tenthorey on board and became a full-service bridal makeup + hair firm. They are now a full service bridal firm, with extensive multi-cultural experience. Their studio specializes in South Asian bridal hair + makeup + styling and are known for bridal applications, engagements, mehndi evenings, other special events and make-up lessons.

 We are excited to announce our new “Gold'” Wedding-in-a-Box Package includes her services! When booking the gold package with RSVP, you will receive makeup applications for 4 bridesmaids and 1 bride (yourself)!
