Romantic Fuller Updos. Braids are not going away anytime soon, they keep getting more elegant and beautiful. For the brides who want their hair down, I’m seeing soft, romantic retro waves.
*Veil Trends? Are Brides Wearing them? Are they doing something different?
- Brides are choosing beautiful hair accessories over veils these days. Traditions are being broken, and deciding what hair accessory a bride will wear can all depend on the venue. Flowers and flower Crowns are being worn as well as beautiful Crystal Crowns for more sophistication. Something different, brides are wanting to change the look of their hair after the ceremony into something new for the reception.
*How Does the Runway/Fashion World Effect Bridal Trends?
-Runway and Fashion are always a huge influence on trends, even in the bridal world. But by the time they hit the mainstream they get a little watered down. Right now Crystal Crowns are really big on the runway, but these days weddings are really about who you are or what feeling you want to exude.
*Any Fading Trends That You are Happy to See Go?
-I pretty much love any wedding hair but 2014-2015 almost every bride wanted a side bun with a braid. It was and is a beautiful look, but as a creative it’s in your nature to want to do something fresh and unique.
*Anything Else You Would Like to Add?
-For all the brides out there, when you are headed to your stylist for your preview be sure to try different looks. I like to book 1 1/2 hours for my bridal previews to allow time to create at least 2 looks for my bride, sometimes 3. Just like a dress you may be surprised at what you end up loving!
-Growing up I was always fascinated with runway, models and fashion. Becoming a hairdresser was the best way I knew how to get into that world. Styling to me is like the icing on the cake and anyone who knows me knows I love icing. What I mean by this is you can have a great cut and a great color but when your hair is finished with that amazing blow out, full voluminous updo or beautiful beachy waves any woman knows it’s EVERYTHING! It can make you feel sexy, youthful and romantic. I remember watching a coworker, at the first salon I worked, take this woman with fine thin hair and dress it into this beautiful french twist and at that moment I knew that is what I wanted to be great at. It was such an amazing transformation. What I love the most about what I do is the relationships that I have developed over the years; with my clients, my coworkers, other creative artists, I am constantly networking and meeting new people literally around, not just the country, but around the world. Most of all I love that I can continue to push the boundaries of my creative expression without any limits but the limits I put on myself.
