Today's modern brides have really changed the makeup and hairstyles for the industry. It seems like all my brides are wanting the soft, romantic, whimsical hair that looks clean but not completely polished and hairsprayed in place. The makeup requests are also more on the softer side - with brides requesting makeup that makes the skin look natural, luminous and smooth up close and in camera, and their eyes to be a little more dolled up than the everyday. It's been a joyride getting to know each one of my brides throughout the years and every one of their requests has helped me to understand more and more of what these modern brides really want. No bride is a like, and with their unique features, wedding details, and personal style, I absolutely love what I do even more because it is truly a custom crafted art that I get to create with them. It makes it special, unique and perfect for each one of my beauties!
Here's a bridal hair and makeup session that my hairstylist, Lizzy Rivera and I created to show off our modern bridal beauty style. Here's the details:
For our bride, Lily's hair, Lizzy added about 18" of hair extensions (human hair) and about 8 pieces were used. Lily has thick, semi curly shoulder length hair so this just added the perfect amount of length for the bridal style. Lizzy incorporated a braid to the back of the style and cascaded the locks onto the right side of the shoulders. The front was kept soft swooped for the goddess hair piece. Lot of dry shampoo was used to prep the hair for the perfect texture and holding power. Lizzy used a wand to curl the hair and extensions, and teased the crown with a teasing brush.
