Choosing Wedding Hair Inspiration: 5 Tips for Brides

5 tips for brides when it comes to choosing your wedding hair inspiration pictures.

Here are five tips for brides when it comes to choosing wedding hair inspiration pictures:

  1. Consider your wedding dress: Your wedding hair should complement your dress, so take cues from your dress style and neckline when choosing hairstyles. For example, if you have a strapless gown, you might want to consider an updo that draws attention to your neck and shoulders.
  2. Think about your hair type: Different hairstyles work best with different hair types. If you have thin hair, you might want to consider a voluminous updo or adding hair extensions. If you have curly hair, you might want to embrace your natural texture with loose waves or a curly updo.
  3. Look for hairstyles that flatter your face shape: Just like with haircuts, different hairstyles can flatter different face shapes. For example, if you have a round face, you might want to consider an updo that adds height at the crown to elongate your face.
  4. Don’t be afraid to mix and match: You don’t have to choose just one hairstyle for your wedding day. Consider combining elements from different styles to create a unique and personalised look.
  5. Consider your wedding theme: If you’re having a beach wedding, you might want to consider a loose, bohemian hairstyle that complements the relaxed vibe. If you’re having a more formal affair, a sleek updo might be more appropriate.

Confidence and Beauty: Your Perfect Bridal Hairstyle

Remember, the most important thing is to choose a hairstyle that makes you feel confident and beautiful on your special day. You CAN have your dream bridal hair – whatever that may be, you just have to be prepared for the process that it takes to create that for you. If you have short hair and dream of long silky waves then you’re going to need to be prepared to wear extensions of some sort. This will also mean that you need to consider extra cost involved, and possibly additional hair appointments or maintenance too.

Preparing for Your Dream Bridal Hair

One of the best things to do is try and find a selection of styles to show me at your preview session that you really like. You don’t have to want the entire style – you might simply like the front of one, or the shape of curl on another. Your wedding hair is going to be totally unique to you so it’s really important that we understand what you like – and even what you don’t – so that we can consider all of the details when it comes to your finished bridal hair style.

Selecting the Ideal Wedding Makeup: Bridal Dilemmas

5 Things a Bide to be Should Consider When Choosing Her Perfect Wedding Makeup Look

Choosing the perfect wedding makeup look can be a daunting task for any bride-to-be. Here are five things that should be considered when making a decision about perfect wedding makeup look:

  1. Skin type and complexion: To achieve a flawless and natural look, it is important to choose makeup that complements the bride’s skin type and complexion. Sounds simple right? But it’s so important and one of the big reasons that a Bride chooses to book a professional makeup artist for their wedding morning. A professional makeup artist can help determine the best products and shades to use, dependant on the outcome that you want to achieve. They might suggest a certain type of foundation, or you might even want to try something like airbrush makeup for your wedding day.
  2. The wedding theme and setting: The makeup should reflect the overall style and theme of the wedding. For example, a beach wedding may call for a more natural and light look, while a formal evening wedding may require a more dramatic and bold approach. Think about what you think ‘fits’ with the wedding that you’re creating.
  3. The bride’s personal style: It is important for the bride to feel comfortable and confident on her wedding day, so the makeup should reflect her personal style. Whether she prefers a natural or a dramatic look, the makeup should enhance her features and make her feel beautiful. You don’t have to look different and you certainly don’t have to wear something that you wouldn’t usually, or are not too sure about just because its a ‘wedding’. You want to look and feel like the very best version of you, whatever that might be for you.
  4. Longevity: The makeup should be able to last throughout the entire day and night, so it is important to use high-quality, long-lasting products. This is another reason to choose a professional. All of the items in my bridal make up kit are there because they are tried an tested, I know they work and I know they will last for your entire wedding day.
  5. Photography: The bride will be photographed extensively on her wedding day, so it is important to choose makeup that looks great both in person and on camera. A professional makeup artist can help create a look that will photograph beautifully and still look just as beautiful in person. Just because you will be photographed you don’t need to wear ‘more’ makeup, you simply need to wear the right makeup.

Your Wedding, Your Rules: Prioritizing Your Desires

One last thing to consider is what you actually want. What do you like to look like, and what would you like to look like on your wedding day. Reagrdless of anything or anyone else make sure you stay true to what you want. If you want something different then go for it, if you don’t want to wear lipstick, then don’t. Your wedding, your rules!

Wedding Makeup Prep: Moisturise

Wedding Makeup Prep: Moisturise

Wedding Makeup Prep: Moisturize for Radiant Skin

As a Bride to be you might be starting to consider what type of hair and makeup look you want to create on your wedding day. Regardless of style choice there are a few things that I advise all my brides to be doing, to help get their skin in the best possible condition ready for their wedding makeup prep.

The Importance of Skin Preparation for Bridal Makeup

It’s no secret that the key to good makeup, is good skin. If there is a good base for the products then your make up will undoubtedly look even better. Skin that is well looked after will work with your makeup, rather than against it. There are a few key things that your bridal makeup artist might suggest to you depending on your own skin type but one of the most important ones is always to ensure your skin is moisturised.

Key Considerations for Effective Moisturizing

Now some people, especially those with oily skin, tend to skip this step thinking that they don’t need it but unfortunately that’s simply not the case. Oily skin often over produces the oils your skin is lacking which is why a good skincare routine is really important, especially in the run up to your wedding day.

Hydration, Radiance, and Smooth Skin: The Benefits of Moisturizing

Here are three important points to consider when it comes to moisturising :

  1. Hydration is key. By moisturising your skin, you can help to keep it hydrated, which can help to prevent dryness, flakiness, and other skin problems. This is especially important if you have naturally dry skin.
  2. A healthy glow. Moisturising can help to give you a healthy, radiant glow. This is because moisturisers can help to boost circulation and improve skin tone, which can make your complexion look brighter and more even.
  3. Smooth skin. By moisturising regularly, you can help to keep your skin soft and smooth. This can be especially important if you plan to wear a sleeveless or backless dress, as dry, rough skin can be noticeable, uncomfortable and distracting.

Incorporating Moisturizing into Your Daily Skincare Routine

A few basic ways to incorporate this into your daily routine might look something like this:

  • Drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated from the inside out.
  • Using a gentle, moisturising cleanser to wash your face each day.
  • Be sure to remove any makeup properly before bed.
  • Apply a moisturiser with SPF each morning and a rich night cream before bed.

Consulting a Specialist for Your Wedding-Ready Skin

If you’re still not sure exactly how to get your skin looking it’s best for your big day then this is something we can certainly discuss at your preview session. If you have any concerns about your skin then make an appointment to see a skin specialist or dermatologist who will be able to look at things in much more detail and help you create a skin care routine and plan to get your skin wedding ready!

The Year of the Relaxed Bride

2023 was certainly the year of the relaxed bride. Often I’d hear things like ‘ I want it to look casual’ or ‘I don’t want it too tight or fussy ’. A boho wedding is a perfect choice for those who love a relaxed and free-spirited vibe. When it comes to choosing your boho wedding hairstyle, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure you look your best on your big day.

Choosing the Perfect Boho Wedding Hairstyle

First and foremost, consider the overall theme and style of your wedding. A boho wedding is all about being natural and free, so you want your hairstyle to reflect that. Loose, flowing waves or messy braids are both great options for a boho wedding. You may also want to consider adding some flowers or other natural elements to your hair to complete the look.

Matching Your Hairstyle to Your Dress and Accessories

Next, think about your dress and accessories. Your hairstyle should complement your dress rather than compete with it. If you have a dress with intricate details or a high neckline, then a simple hairstyle may be the best option. If your dress is more simple, then you can afford to be a bit more creative with your hairstyle.

Enhancing Your Hair with Braids and Twists

Adding braids and twists to a textured hairstyle can really help show off any colours you have in your hair too. Adding dimension to hair that is all one colour helps to give the hair some extra detail and can even make fine hair appear thicker and fuller.

Considering Your Hair Type and Length

Finally, consider your hair type and length. Some hairstyles work better with certain hair types and lengths, so it’s important to choose a hairstyle that will work well with your hair. Pinterest is a great place to go for information but be sure to try an find styles that are similar in length and colour to what you already have. If you have short hair but love the long flowing braided wave styles then consider adding some extensions to create a more boho look. If you already have long hair, then you have more options, including braids, twists, and updos.

Creating a Beautiful Boho Wedding Hairstyle

In summary, when choosing a boho wedding hairstyle, think about the overall theme and style of your wedding, your dress and accessories, and your hair type and length. With these factors in mind, you can create a beautiful and natural hairstyle that will complement your boho wedding perfectly.
