This may just be one of my favorite new looks for the bride or bridal party! This was pretty easy to do, and she had great hair for it. I love when brides have dimensional color for updos, no matter how subtle. She was very realistic with the fact that she's getting married in NC in the summer and needs her hair off of her neck and face! I first prepped the hair by smoothing completely with R+Co High Dive and getting her ends nice and smooth with a flat iron to prevent from fraying out. I then added Pravana Lived In Powder to give her workable texture, and Redken Spray Wax. After a little teasing and manipulating, wrapping and pinning, we finished with Matrix Total Results High Amplify hairspray. She liked the simplicity of it, but something more than just a low bun when her lovely veil is removed for the reception.
Some of you may know I've recently started working with Wink Hair and Makeup for wedding/formal hair. I always stayed away from wedding hair unless the bride was already a client of mine, but it wasn't until I went on my own that I actually enjoyed doing it! Wedding hair has changed quite a bit since I started doing hair over a decade ago. In place of crunchy, formed curls and slicked back looks, we now have soft, touchable, yet long lasting styles. Needless to say, I'm in love! Wink has given me the opportunity to be surrounded by like-minded stylist and artists who can complete the look of the bride and party while supporting each other.
I also went to the first NC Hair and Makeup Summit a couple of weeks ago, hosted by the incredible Sam Ray. Again, to be surrounded by so many women who have the same interests and conflicts, it was nice to be able to work off each other and pick everyone's brains of what to do when you have stressed out brides, or confusing wedding planners. I love making the connections and relationships I feel like I was held back from at my last salon.
All of these events and weddings have kept me extremely busy, especially on weekends. Due to not being able to fit all of my clients into my schedule during my normal work week, I have started to add some Fridays scattered into my schedule! You can pull up my online booking page here. I recommend booking soon if you have a specific day, or time restrictions.
Thank you for your continuing support and love! I hope you all have a beautiful holiday this weekend.
