Hello out there!

It has been a long while since I have been able to sit down and share with you some fun stories and photos from wedding season 2015! What a year it was! Here are a few stories and pictures from the year. I can’t seem to find photos of every single bride I was lucky to meet, but trust me, it was a year full of beautiful hair!

The season started for me in February with Ashley and Michelle’s wedding.  It snowed like crazy on Ashley’s big day but she was a beautiful bride! I did not style Michelle’s pretty short hair, but her bridesmaids were pretty amazing. It was wonderful to be a part of that day.

In April I got to meet the lovely Marissa. At her trial, we practiced a style with her hair all down and curled. On the day of the wedding, she decided to where an updo. I loved it!

Kathryn, Andrea, Lauren, Shannon, and Melissa were my May brides this year. I loved the sparkling headband worn by Kathryn and the giant flower worn by Lauren was really breathtaking! Shannon had my favorite half up/half down style for the year. She looked amazing! My wonderful friend Melissa was the final bride for the month.

June proved to be a super rainy month for my brides. But even with all of the not so fun weather, these brides shined through and chose some pretty styles. Stephanie’s updo was super soft and Jackie’s vintage look was one of my favorites. Maureen had lots of texture and Blair’s beautiful long hair was show stopping in a half up style.

Michelle and Amy were my only two brides for the whole month of July. While I can’t seem to find a pic of Amy, here is a pic of the braided updo that Michelle wore!

August was so busy! Tiffany, Casey, Laura and Erica all wore their long hair in half up/half down styles.  So pretty and each unique. I loved the double braid in Jen’s updo. I was lucky to style for several parts of Hina’s wedding celebration. This was a crazy busy but very fun month!

September was busy too! Michelle had one of my favorite looks for the year. I am a sucker for a cage veil! I also got to style a few times for Nabihah during her wedding weekend. I don’t have any photos from Lori’s big day, but I remember that she and her bridal party were so nice! Heather’s headband looked perfect with her soft curls.

October is always my favorite month as I am a former October bride myself. Justina changed things up on her wedding day and instead of wearing the low updo we practiced at the trial, went for a much higher updo that I loved. Nicole also had an amazing updo, while Eleni and Hayley went for long curls. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos from Abbey’s big day but let me tell you, she was the most calm and sweet bride.

The final month of wedding season 2015 was November. Lauren, Janaya and Liz were the November brides. Lauren’s family were amazing to spend time with. I wish I had photos of all of their hair but I can’t find any! Janaya’s Oglebay wedding was fun. Her updo was the best! These pics do not do it justice. Final bride of the year was Liz. If there was an award for “Most Laid Back” Liz would win hands down. It was the perfect day to wrap up an amazing wedding season.

I am so thankful to have the best job ever working with the best brides. I am lucky to get to be a small part of a big day for these lovely ladies. I’m sure that some of these brides were stressed but they all were beautiful. Thank you to each and every one of you for choosing me to be a part of your day. Happy New Year to you all and may your marriage be as fun and as beautiful as your wedding day.

I am so excited with 2016 approaching to see what the wedding season will hold for me. I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know each of the brides-to-be as they get ready for their big day.

Happy new year and all the best wishes to all of you! ❤ ❤

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone has been enjoying themselves throughout the holiday season. I wanted to share some fun stories and a few of my favorite photos from this past wedding season. It has a been a really fun and fast year and I have been lucky to share the day with just over 30 brides!

The year started with a few snow loving January brides. I got to style hair for Courtney, Sera and Lindsay on their chilly but awesome wedding days. Here is a photo of Lindsay’s awesome side swept style.

In March, I spent the day with the lovely Chaya. Her full and classic style updo was definitely one of my favorites for the year.

For the month of April, I don’t have any photos of brides to share with you because I spent most of the month hanging out with my boys. I gave birth to my second son on April 8th.

I was able to sneak out of the house in May. Mary was a super sweet bride and I was happy to style her hair!

June is always thought of as a great month for weddings. This year there were some great ones! Karen, Nicole and Karrie had great updos in mind for the walk down the aisle.

Official “wedding season” had definitely began by time I got to hang out with Jackie, Connie, Lindsay and Leslie for their July weddings. Each of these ladies were super fun. I loved the little surprises like the plate of wedding cookies from Jackie’s mom or the handmade buttons from Connie. Leslie’s carnival themed wedding was so adorable, I wanted to take it all home with me!

August has been the craziest and busiest month for at least 3 years now. Laura was a hilarious and very chill bride with amazing curly red hair. Ashley’s 7Springs wedding was also great fun. Megan’s super classy updo was perfect. I don’t know that I have ever laughed more while styling hair than I did for Jenny and her bridal party. Rhiannon and her MOH brought tears to my eyes seeing how their life long friendship made them so emotionally happy. Kristina’s hair and venue were definitely favorites of mine for this year. It was an awesome month!

Things definitely did not slow down in September. Elaina and Lynsey both chose to wear really fun updos. Molly was a fun bride and her flowing, curly style reflected that perfectly. Kris kept her style super sleek and classy while Ashley had braids and lots of texture for her rustic wedding in the park.

October weddings hold a special place in my heart being a former Oct bride myself. For Kristen, I spent the day in 7Springs, which I always love. Then, I got to style hair for a very special bride. One of my closest friend’s Jacki got married and her beautiful style was amazing! For Caitlin, she and I didn’t meet till a few hours before she walked down the aisle and I loved how her hair turned out. The final wedding for the month had me traveling to Ebensburg for Elizabeth’s awesome wedding

I only had 3 brides for November this year but Katie and Kelly both had great wedding parties and fun hair to play with! The last wedding for the month was another dear friend of mine. Dinessa’s amazing hair and fun group of friends and family will not  easily be forgotten.

Finally came the month of December. My bride Jen gets a special shout out for being so understanding. In late September, I somehow hurt my back. Well the week before Jen’s big day, my surgeon and I decided that surgery was the best way for my pain to end. So while she and I had worked out a plan at her trial, I was unable to be there for her wedding day. My great friend and talented stylist, Nikki covered for me big time as I went under the knife. Jen rolled with these changes like a true bridal champ and she looked amazing as she walked down the aisle.

2014 was a spectacular year. I consider myself so lucky to have been a part of each of these amazing wedding days. As you can see, each one was so different and that makes my job even more fun. Thank you to everyone for choosing me to be there with you. Enjoy your time as newly weds, love each other so much and always have fun!

After looking back at this year I am so excited to see what 2015 will bring!

Anna’s Big Day

Posted in Beauty, Bridal Hair, Hair, Half up half down, Pittsburgh Bride, Pittsburgh Hair stylist, Styling, Tiara Wedding Style, Uncategorized, Wedding, Wedding Hair with tags , , , , , , , on October 17, 2012 by Elisha Evans Styling

On Sunday September 2, 2012 Anna got married and I was there to be her stylist! Surrounding her that day were many of her best friends as she got ready to walk down the aisle.

When she and I met for a trial run of her wedding day style back in early May, we only tried one particular look. Anna was certain that she wanted to wear her hair half pulled up, leaving the rest of her very long, dark hair falling down in curls. On the day of her wedding, we recreated that same style with a lot of volume.

With a very deep part in the front, pushing her bangs to one side, we finished the look with a sparking headband.

Anna was a great bride to work with. Lots of fun to be around and knew what she wanted from the minute we first spoke. I’m happy to have been a part of her wedding day!

Shelley B: Trial

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!

Lisa’s Big Day!

On July 7th I got to spend the day with Lisa and her family as they got ready for her ceremony.

When Lisa first contacted me to be the stylist for her wedding day she told me how her day was all about her family. She and her husband-to-be were going to be married at their church which is walking distance from the home they share with the children that they both bring from previous marriages.

During our email exchanges, Lisa showed me a photo of the hair style that she envisioned herself wearing. She wanted to also add fresh flowers and a tiara to the look. So on the day of the wedding she stopped by the florist early in the day and picked up several small white and red rose buds.

 

 

I also got to meet Lisa’s daughter Lauren. She wanted lots of tight spiral curls with both sides to be pinned back. I used a few of the white roses to finish her look.

 

Finally the flower girl is Lisa’s youngest, Danica. She found an adorable photo of an updo online for inspiration. Lots of curls piled on top and accented by a large white flower. So cute!

 

It was really great to meet Lisa and her family. It is always great to spend time with such a strong family on a special day. Thank you again for choosing me to be a small part of the day!

Ashley C’s Big Day!

Posted in Beauty, Hair, Pittsburgh Hair stylist, Styling, Tiara Wedding Style, Wedding, Wedding Hair with tags , , , , on April 6, 2012 by Elisha Evans Styling

The last day of March 2012 was Ashley’s wedding day and I got to be the stylist.

Earlier in the month she, her mother and I got together for a trial run of her hair. At that time, she decided to wear her hair up with curls gathered in the back. On the day of the wedding, I styled Ashley’s hair with the same full curls,  but this time we decided to make it much more full on top. After the style was complete we added the tiara and she was ready to get married.

I was also lucky enough to meet a few of Ashley’s new relatives. Emma was to be the Jr. Bridesmaid that day. She had a lot of long and very curly hair that she wanted to wear up. After discussing a few options she decided to wear a braid on either side bringing the long hair around to the back. There I wound three large buns into a very fun updo.

 Next up was Kathy. She had a photo from a fragrance ad that inspired her style. It was a full and soft up style. She wanted to make sure that all of her hair was up and away from her face. I really love the way this style turned out.

Ashley’s wedding day was really fun. I’m glad to have met all of the lovely people who I styled. I wish the newly weds a long and happy marriage, full of love and happiness!

 

 

Ashley: Trial

Posted in Beauty, Hair, Pittsburgh Hair stylist, Styling, Tiara Wedding Style, Wedding with tags , , , , on March 19, 2012 by Elisha Evans Styling

Ashley’s wedding is at the end of this month, so she and I got together over the weekend to practice the style for the big day. Her mom Kathy come along for the trial as well. They showed me photos of the gown that she will wear when she walks down the aisle and brought with them the tiara that she has decided to wear. She decided to forego tradition and not wear a veil.

Other than wearing it up with the tiara, she really had no other guidelines or preferences. So I began curling and pinning her very long hair. The end result was an updo that set right at the back of her head with all of her hair pulled away from her face.

 

Both Ashley and Kathy were pleased with the outcome. I am looking forward to the wedding day at the end of the March when I will get to spend time with these lovely ladies once again. Congratulations Ashley!
