I have been talking with Lynne since early March about her upcoming wedding. She currently lives in New York so while she was home we met for a trial run of her wedding style.

We discussed different kinds styles for her to wear on the big day. Originally she had thought of wearing her hair mostly down in curls with a few peices pulled up on the sides.

After trying that, we decided to pull all the hair to her right shoulder.

Finally, we pulled it all up into a side updo accented with a flower.

It was awesome hanging out with Lynne and I am looking forward to seeing her again in September. I am also excited to see which style she chooses!

I was contacted by Bridesmaid Annie just a few short weeks ago. She was helping her sister wrap up the last few details leading up to Emily’s wedding day. The bride and I met just last week to do a trial run of her hair.

For the special day, she decided to wear her hair gather to the right and have curls fall down over her shoulder. She was also planning on wearing a cage veil and a small sparkling barrette. I absolutely loved the way it turned out.

This past weekend, I got the pleasure of being a part of a special day for Sadaf! I was contacted by her sister in law, Nabihah back in the beginning of April while she was planning the big day. I got to style for several members of the family.

For Sadaf herself, she wanted to wear her very long hair pulled to one side and down her shoulder in curls. She needed lots of volume on top to help support her veil. She also wanted to wear a side part with her Tikka.

Last week I got to hang out with Nicole as she was getting ready to head to her Senior Prom.

She has really long, thick and curly hair. So for this fun day, she decided to try a very textured updo. Her inspiration was a video she found online and the style that Jennifer Lawrence wore to the Oscars. So with several curls a a couple of braids we found a style that was ideal for her.

Nicole was super fun and I look forward to styling her hair again in the future!

This weekend i got to spend time with Lauren on her wedding day. She and I have been talking since March of 2012! So when the day finally arrived, I was pretty excited to finally see her look come together.

At her trial, we discussed wearing her hair all up. On the big day, we did just that. Lots of texture throughout the sides and top led to tight curls in and updo on the back. She accented her style with a gorgeous flower fascinator.

I also got to style her sister and Bridesmaid Andrea’s hair. She too wanted to wear her hair all up.

Today I got the pleasure of hanging out with a great family. Bride Katharine and I met a couple short weeks ago to do a trial run of her hair and makeup. During that meeting, I learned how close and fun her friends and family are. Because of that, I knew today would be fun.

 

For Katharine’s hair, we decided to have the side set bun be a little bit more full than at the trial. I really liked the braid along with the sparkling hair pin.

I also got to style her sister-in-law Katie’s hair. She showed me a picture of a cute updo that was full on top and set low on the back of her head. She also had a great hair pin.

Katharine’s sister, Elizabeth chose to wear her hair all to the right side in a massive bun. Accenting her hair was a great flower fascinator.

Finally, sister of the groom Molly showed me a photos of an updo that included a braid on one side.

These ladies were all very laid back and happy to spend the day together. I am very happy to have met all of them. Thank you to Katharine for letting me be a part of her big day. I wish for her a long and happy marriage!
