Becky’s Big Day!

Today I traveled to Somerset, PA with my dear friend Nikki to help Becky and her bridal party get read for Becky’s wedding day.

Nikki is a great stylist and had some fun hair to play with today. She and Becky got together not too long ago to practice a wedding day style. They decided on a side ponytail with tons of curls. Since Becky had decided not to wear a veil she created a really fantastic accent piece for her hair, made of white feathers.

Today Nikki was able to recreate their practiced style to by pulling all of Becky’s blonde hair to the left. Lots of voluminous curls cascaded down on to her shoulder. The white feathered clip (that Becky made for herself!) placed nicely on top of the curls. Nikki used a few “trade secrets” to create a lot more curls for Becky’s side do’. Becky made for a gorgeous bride today.

Next, Nikki went on to work with a member of the bridal party named Amy.  Amy brought a picture of Heidi Klum for inspiration. Basically, Amy wanted a giant bun placed high on her head. Nikki got to work using another “trade secret” and smoothed Amy’s hair high up on her head.  Amy choose to also wear a black headband.

While Nikki was working on those lovely ladies I had my hands busy with another member of the bridal party named Christy. She has a lot of hair and wanted to keep it simple, requesting only that her hair be all up, and have a side part. I starting off with a basic bun centered in the back. To keep it a little more exciting, I wove several different strands around the bun. This technique creates a basket weave effect on top of the bun. The bride brought a whole bunch of different barrettes and hair accents for the ladies to use at their will. Christy choose two white flowers and placed them on the right side for a little more fun.

The next member of the bridal I got to meet today was Danni. She has a very fun asymmetrical bob. We decided right away to give her a very deep part and create some loose curls around her face. Danni explained that she really liked her hair to be quite full so we made that happen in the back. To off set the deep part she wanted to use a large flower. We placed this right aside her ear to finish.

Kirsten was next to sit in my chair. She brought two  pictures of a full side ponytail. So the plan was lots of  fullness on the top and the back, then bring the full length of her hair far over to the right side. She has really long hair so the curls fell quite naturally down over her right shoulder. After creating the volume I smoothed her hair over and tucked it right behind her right ear. Kirsten also had a barrette for her hair. I put a large black flower right on top of the ponytail to complete her look for the day.

The final member of the bridal party was Amanda. The length of Amanda’s hair sits just about at her shoulders. She was very quick to say that if her hair was left down in any kind of curls, she had a habit of  playing with them.  Knowing this would cause any curl left down to fall loose, she wanted to eliminate that entirely. I curled all of Amanda’s hair and starting winding the curls around one another making it look as though her hair was twice as long. I pulled both sides of the part to the back and tucked it up to complete an amazing short hair up-do.

I had an absolute blast with Becky and all of her friends today. Getting to work with such a close group of friend is always a treat. Especially when they have more than enough hilarious stories to make the afternoon go faster than you can imagine. As always, I am very happy that I got to be a part of such a special day for Becky and I wish her and her new husband all the love and fun in the world!

  1. Elisha and Nikki,

    You have no idea how grateful I am that you two were able to assist with hair and make up on my big day! The talent the two of you have is off the charts amazing. I am gladly going to recommend the two of you to everyone I can! Our hair styles held up all night and my hair was confused when I took out the side pony it wanted to stay in that positiion! Several people asked where we got our hair done and told me we all looked expensive with our hair did! Thanks again for sharing your talent with us and making us be able to party like rock stars with fab hair! Also for providing entertainment for us and laughing at the funny stories we shared with you about some of our friends! 🙂
