Earlier this month I got the pleasure of being the stylist for Annie’s big day in Eastern W.V. I was first contacted by the MOH Liz. She was helping the bride-to-be find a stylist since both ladies would be coming in from out-of-town Since Annie lives in CA, I knew that I wouldn’t get to meet with her till the week of the wedding itself.

On the Wednesday before their nuptials, I drove the 2 hours down to meet Annie and her mom for the first time. We spent several hours in the afternoon practicing both hair and makeup. Finally deciding on wearing her hair all up and to accent to updo with a sparkly floral clip that her Grandmother choose for her. We also practiced her Mom Adele’s makeup before I headed back to Pittsburgh.

Then on Saturday June 9, I traveled to help Liz, Adele and Annie get ready before the ceremony. When styling for the MOB, she was concerned that her hair would be too puffy. So I used a flat-iron to create slight volume at the crown and pulled her bangs into place. He makeup was really fun. I used browns, golds and bronzes to highlight her eyes.

 

Next up was Liz.  She decided to wear her hair up and to the right side.We used a very deep side part to swoop the front of her hair back. Then I wove all of the curls and twists to create a fun but classic look.

As for her makeup, we wanted to keep it pretty simple but again have a classic twist to it. So I used a smokey eye liner and subtle brown shade to make a pretty cat-eye. The look was finished with a nude but glossy lip.

 

Finally it was time for the bride. As I mentioned she wanted to wear her hair all up. I curled all of her hair and piled it straight in the back. Texture throughout the whole updo was important to her. All of the hair was pulled from the sides and the front were twisted and pinned to create that look.

For her makeup up she wanted a more dramatic look. So with lots of liner, I made the eyes very smokey and finished with a rosy lip color.

 

I had a blast with these ladies and I am so happy that I got to meet and spend time with them. Thanks again to Annie for choosing me to be a small part of such a big day!
