At the start of August, I got to spend the day with Laura and her friends and family as they got ready to stand next to this awesome bride on her wedding day.

When we met for a trial run in July, I knew that this day was going to be super fun and laid back. On the morning of the wedding, I traveled out to Butler County earing in the morning of what was to be a beautiful summer day.

Laura has awesome, curly red hair. On the day of she wanted to feel like herself, so we put her hair in long cascading curls falling down on her shoulders. She also decided to wear a simple head band and a veil for the big day.

Ashley’s Big Day!

The bride Ashley loved her trial and wanted to keep things exactly the same tons of long curls cascading down with a bit pulled up on one side for a fun blue flower (that matches her awesome blue shoes) As we curled her blonde hair the shine really started to show in the long curls that fell down around her face and onto her shoulders. We added a lot of fullness at the crown for some real glamour, and of course that fantastic blue flower for fun!

What a beautiful bunch of ladies all looking for a unique style.  All 5 of Ashley’s bridesmaids had different ideas for their styles, which I love!

The first of the ladies decided to have a funky “pony tail” type of up do. Tons of volume in the back with bouncy curls pouring out the back made for a unique and fun look.

The next bridesmaid Leah, wanted a cute half up/half down look with a sleek chignon in the back. She wanted to keep the hair down straight to continue with the sleek theme she liked and to differentiate herself from the other bridesmaids.

Another bridesmaid Carrie choose a half up/half down style, but this bridesmaid wanted tons of big full curls. Her bangs swooped to the side pulled the final look together.

The last two of the bridesmaids Rachel and Kristen, wanted their hair to be all up. One of them with a low-set bun and a fun braid to spice it up. The other wanted a more classic look with curls and loops winded up through the back.

A variety of style is a great way to let your bridesmaids show off their own personal style and these ladies did just that. It’s days like today and wedding parties like this that reinforce why I love what I do. Tons of fun and tons of personality surrounded us all day. I’m so happy that I got to be a part of Ashley’s big day, and I wish the happy new bride and groom many years of love and happiness!

Big Day For Nicole!

When I headed out towards Nicole’s home the temperature could not have been more comfortable. It was a great start to a day full of hair. Not too warm, little humidity and no rain makes for happy hair.

It was an early start at about 7:00am and the lovely bride came first. At our trial we had discussed wearing her hair half up and half down, however a game time decision led Nicole to want to try her hair all down. As the beautiful blonde curls began to fill out I could see that this was going to be a gorgeous look for the wedding. Wanting to keep some of it off the face we pulled a few strategic strands back and wove them in and out of some of the already formed curls hanging loose. The effect gave a glamorous fullness that could easily handle a veil.

We moved on from there to a couple of her Bridesmaids. Erin sat down in the chair and was looking for a side swept up do with lots of curls. She has awesome, thick hair that was really fun to play with and cooperated easily. The curls piled up more full on top and to the right, allowing some loose curls to trail over her shoulder. An important piece that Erin really wanted was for her bangs to be up and out-of-the-way. They were pinned back to ensure a whole day of dancing!

The next Bridesmaid to have a seat was Melissa. She has long brown hair. Melissa was open for just about anything, requesting only that it be up and secure. We took each strand up and built it into an up style that sat right at the back of her head. Not too high but not too low to the neck. Melissa, being a mommy did not need to have hair fall down around her face nor on her shoulders. I really love the way the back turned out.

Next was a Junior Bridesmaid with the kind of hair that we all miss from when we were in 7th grade, full, shiny and healthy. She had been inspired by one of the other Bridesmaids and wanted a style swept to the side. We began curling and building the style towards the left, she too did not want to have any bangs in her face. The unique part of this style was the braid that we decided to use to jazz up the front and the twists pulling again to the left to finish the look.

It was a great morning with some fun ladies and some really pretty hair. I can’t wait to see the photos from the rest of Nicole’s big day! Thanks again to Nicole, her friends and her family for allowing me to be apart of special day. I am very lucky to get to meet so many great people, and of course do some fun hair!
