Cassi: Wedding guest style.

I got a call from a former bride who was attending a wedding today and wanted to do something a little more than the average wedding guest hair style.

The last time I did Cassi’s hair in a formal style was for her own wedding last June. At that time she wanted a very natural looking style leaving the majority of her hair down.

This time Cassi asked me what I suggested, her only request was a style that would be comfortable even with this extreme heat wave we are feeling. I explained to Cassi that if we were to arrange her hair all up and off her neck and shoulders she could stay cooler easier.

So we started building a lot of volume in the lower back of her head and kept the volume up to the crown. Since we were aiming for just a little more charisma than a basic bun, we curled some of the sides and the top, pulling  them back to incorporate them into the bun.

I think this style would work for a guest of a wedding, a bridesmaid or even a bride!

Ooh Baby!!

I have been getting some calls and emails from brides looking for a stylist on their big day in October 2011. I thought I should make a little announcement:

I am having a baby!  My husband and I are expecting our first child on October 2, 2011. We couldn’t be more happy and excited to meet this little guy!

I will be back on my feet starting in November 2011 and ready to style some hair!

Ashley’s Big Day!

The bride Ashley loved her trial and wanted to keep things exactly the same tons of long curls cascading down with a bit pulled up on one side for a fun blue flower (that matches her awesome blue shoes) As we curled her blonde hair the shine really started to show in the long curls that fell down around her face and onto her shoulders. We added a lot of fullness at the crown for some real glamour, and of course that fantastic blue flower for fun!

What a beautiful bunch of ladies all looking for a unique style.  All 5 of Ashley’s bridesmaids had different ideas for their styles, which I love!

The first of the ladies decided to have a funky “pony tail” type of up do. Tons of volume in the back with bouncy curls pouring out the back made for a unique and fun look.

The next bridesmaid Leah, wanted a cute half up/half down look with a sleek chignon in the back. She wanted to keep the hair down straight to continue with the sleek theme she liked and to differentiate herself from the other bridesmaids.

Another bridesmaid Carrie choose a half up/half down style, but this bridesmaid wanted tons of big full curls. Her bangs swooped to the side pulled the final look together.

The last two of the bridesmaids Rachel and Kristen, wanted their hair to be all up. One of them with a low-set bun and a fun braid to spice it up. The other wanted a more classic look with curls and loops winded up through the back.

A variety of style is a great way to let your bridesmaids show off their own personal style and these ladies did just that. It’s days like today and wedding parties like this that reinforce why I love what I do. Tons of fun and tons of personality surrounded us all day. I’m so happy that I got to be a part of Ashley’s big day, and I wish the happy new bride and groom many years of love and happiness!

As I sit here baking in the sun I can’t believe that it is July already! Where has 2011 gone?

There is plenty going on in July. I am so excited for Friday July 8th because I get to see a lovely bride (Ashley) again.

Also in July I get to meet Stephanie for a trial run of big day hair!

This month I really want to talk about Bridesmaid options and will be showing some examples of bridesmaid hair from the past and of course some current bridesmaids that deserve some of the spot light!

This is going to be a great month and there are still a few spots left in fall 2011  so email me or check out more pics on  Facebook and on weddingwire!

Enjoy the heat and get to a pool!
