Hair and Makeup
Every bride pictures herself beautiful on her big day. From the perfect dress, all the way up to the perfect hair style. The biggest part of your bridal look (besides the dress!) is your hair and makeup. It is important to bring out your personality in your look. Are you glamorous, traditional, or relaxed? Your bridal makeup and hair is your chance to look your very best, but you also want to make sure you look like you!
If you wear thick eyeliner or a bold lip every day, you probably consider your makeup personality to be glamorous. This is your signature style and it looks good on you! Why steer from it on your wedding day? Chances are your bridal gown is grand and dramatic so your glamorous hair and makeup will be perfect. When we think about glam-hair we think big, voluminous curls adorned with a sparkling hair piece. Dramatic and gorgeous!
A traditional bride has more of a classic style. Chic, clean up-do’s and simplistic makeup are trademarks of this signature style. Traditional brides like their wedding to be clean and crisp, simple yet elegant, and the same goes for their look on the big day. An up-do is a perfect way to round out your traditional look, complete with a veil and tiara. Natural makeup will finish your traditional look, keeping it easy and beautiful.
Outdoor weddings are becoming one of the hottest trends. Rustic barns, destination beaches, or a backyard tent soiree, this bride is a little more relaxed and care-free. Flower crowns are widely popular with these types of events taking the place of a traditional veil. Hair styles are whimsical incorporating soft loose curls or braids. Boho and rustic brides also tend to keep their makeup more natural adding hints of bright pinks, or a rich lip color for a polished look.
When thinking about your style and how you want to look on your big day, there are a few aspects to keep in mind. Is your venue more upscale and formal? Or is it more laid back and fun? Outdoor or indoor? When picking your venue it will help jumpstart the rest of your planning decisions; from the fashion to the event style. When focusing in on your bridal style, it is imperative to go for a hair and makeup trial a few months before the wedding. This will give you and your stylist a chance to perfect exactly how you want to look when you walk down the aisle to prevent any missteps the day of. There is an abundance of time that goes into planning your nuptials but when it comes to your bridal style, we say stay true to yourself and let your beauty shine!
