Kiki’s Big Day!

This past weekend I got pleasure of hanging out with Kiki as she prepared to walk down the aisle on her wedding day. She contacted me at the very beginning of 2012 when she was looking for a stylist. When we finally got to meet in June, I knew this day was going to be pretty fun.

With seven ladies in her bridal party we got started bright and early. Nikki came with me for this one to help keep on track. She started by styling Bridesmaid Katie. Wanting to keep most of her hair pulled back off of her face, the back was pinned up in a ponytail like updo with lots of curls.

 

I started the morning by styling for sister of the groom Lisa. I started by twisting a braid from the left side bringing her hair all over to sit directly behind her right ear. At first she wanted to leave her long hair in curls falling down in her shoulder, but as the morning ran on she changed her mind. Nikki pinned all the hair up in a messy bun while I was styling the bride.

 

Next for me was bridesmaid Steph. She explained that she wanted a messy side updo with lots of texture.

 

Meanwhile, Nikki was busy styling Maid of honor Jessica. She wanted lots of pin curls and texture pinned all up and slightly off centered  to the left.

 

Nikki also styled for bridal party member Jayme who also wanted her hair all up. I love the way the curls are weaved and pinned together!

 

Bridesmaid Marni was also styled by Nikki. She wanted to wear her simply half-up while the rest was down in loose curls.

 

I got to be the one to style Flower Girl diva Brooke. She was well prepared with a photo and described to me that she wanted two braids and a side pony tail with lots of curls.

 

Finally I got to style the bride-to-be Kiki. Back during the trial run in June we practiced her hair pulled half-up with lots of curls falling down on her shoulders. So that’s what I recreated again for the wedding day. She wanted a lot of volume in the back with all of her hair pulled away from her face. Finishing her hair, I added a sparkling headband. For her makeup, she wanted a natural look with dark brown colors.

 

It was really fun to hang out with such a great group of friends. Most of these ladies traveled in from all over the country to be here for Kiki. I’m glad to have been a small part of this day as well. Thank you again for choosing me to be the stylist!
