The first half of 2017 has been a super busy one. From styling hair for beautiful weddings, to cuts, color, and balayage fun at Copacetic! Here are just a few quick photos of some of the gorgeous hair that I have had the pleasure of styling so far in 2017!

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!

Earlier in July, I got to spend the day with Hannah as she and her bridal party got ready for the ceremony. The bride-to-be and I had a trial near the beginning of summer where we tried several different styles. For the wedding she had decided to go with an updo that was worn slightly on the left side.

For the bridal party, Hannah asked that they all have their hair in some form of an updo. It was a lot of fun getting to know these girls and helping them to find a style that was their own.

I really loved the way that everything turned out and had a lot of fun with these girls. Thank you to Hannah for letting me be a small part of such a big day! Best wishes for a long and happy marriage!

Carol’s Big Day!

Back in early November I got to spend the day with a very sweet bride before she walked down the aisle on her wedding day. Carol and I had been talking about her hair and makeup since the middle of May and now the day had finally come.

Normally when I meet with brides for a trial run of their hair they sometimes have a picture or two of a style that they like. When we got together back on July she had the exact style picked out and a photo of every possible angle that you could imagine of this hair style. She was a very thorough bride-to-be!

So on the morning of her big day, Carol and I got to work on curling her long thick hair. Most of the hair would remain falling down her back but the rest would be pulled up from the side and front, leaving only her bangs to accent her face.

She also chose to wear a sparkling barrette in her hair to finish the style.

Carol was a great bride to work with, very sweet and knew exactly what she wanted. I’m very lucky to have gotten to be a part of her special day. Thanks again for choosing me to be there with you!

Lynetta’s Big Day

Yesterday was my friend Lynetta’s wedding day. She and I have known each other since 3rd grade. Like many people do, we lost touch for several years but thanks to the wonders of social media, we reconnected about 5 years ago. When she told me that she and Jeremy had gotten engaged I was thrilled! I was honored when she asked me to be involved in her special day by styling her hair and makeup.

Since the wedding was to take place in Columbus, OH and she had recently moved to Boston, MA, there was no time for us to get together for a trial run of her hair. So through the past year we have talked, mostly through emails and Facebook, discussing exactly what she did and did not want for her wedding day style.
When the big day finally arrived, she decided that she wanted subtle Victory Rolls to bring an element of vintage to the day. I curled the back of her hair for lots of volume and the swooped her bangs to one side.

 

To finish the look, she chose to wear a cage veil.

 

Lynetta is a wonderful person and I am lucky to call her my friend. I am very thankful to have been there to celebrate with her on the day that she married such a great guy. I wish for them all the love and fun in the world! Thanks again Netta, for letting me be part of your big day.  ❤

Carol: Trial

Posted in Beauty, Bridal Hair, Bridal Veil, Columbus, Hair, Half up half down, natural makeup, Oglebay Wedding, Ohio Bride, Styling, West Virginia Wedding with tags , , , , , , , , on July 30, 2012 by Elisha Evans Styling

This weekend I got to meet up with bride-to-be Carol for a trial run of her hair and makeup. Even though her wedding is not until the beginning of November, she contacted me back around the first of May. Since the wedding is taking place a few hours from her home, and each of her bridal party members are traveling great distances, Carol was looking for an on-location stylist to keep things simple for her traveling friends.

One of the things I have loved about getting to know Carol and her bridal party so far is that along with our email correspondence, she invited me to follow her on Pinterest. With this I have been able to see all of the ideas that she has liked when it come to not only hair and makeup but bridesmaid dresses and styles that her bridesmaids love too! So when she arrived I felt like I knew exactly what to do with her hair.

We started by curling her hair with several different sizes of curling irons. Then I made a deep part on the right side of her head and began pulling large curls back. This created a lot of texture along the sides. I weaved the curls around each other to make a good base at the back of her head for the fingertip length veil that she will wear for the ceremony. To finish her style, she has picked out a very sparkly fascinator.

 

 

Carol wanted to use neutral tones for her makeup. I love the way the golds and browns highlighted her eyes. She has a great skin tone and the pinkish lip color pulls together the whole look nicely.
I am already looking forward to November when I get to travel to Oglebay to see Carol and her friends!
