I have been talking with Shelley for over a year now about her upcoming September wedding. We finally got to meet earlier this week for a trial run of her wedding day hair and makeup.

As I was curling her short hair, she was telling me about the custom veil that she had ordered, and plans to wear throughout the entire day. To keep the hair out of her face I pulled strands from the sides. Then teased some at the crown to make a strong base for the pearl covered veil. Finally finished the look with her tiara.

 

Shelley was very pleased with the way the look turned out, and I look forward to meeting with her again on her big day!

Courtney: Trial

I met Courtney through a good friend of mine a couple of years ago. She is a fun person so when I heard that she had recently gotten engaged I was really happy for her. Then back in April she contacted me over Facebook and let me know that she would love to have me as her stylist for the wedding day. So I am super pumped!

We got together last week to try out a couple different styles. First she explained to me that the ceremony was going to be intimate with only a few family members and friend then after dinner they would be heading out for a non-traditional kind of party. They would be going out for Karaoke! Courtney was also trading in conventional ideas of a wedding gown for her own style so wanted her hair and to adjust for that too.

We got started by trying a half up style with some fullness at the crown, and curls falling down at her shoulders.

After that she wanted to try a softer more relaxed side ponytail.

Courtney is a fun and relaxed bride, and I am lucky to be a part of this wedding. I am looking forward to her September wedding!
