“Brizy Tait, stylist and go-to wedding hair guru at Keep Austin Gorgeous bridal salon in Austin, Texas, says that bridal hair trends aren’t what they used to be. Whether our clients opts for an updo or a chignon or chooses to wear her hair long and loose, the trend is moving away from super formal styles to more relaxed, romantic looks.
“The modern bride does not want to be overdone-her style should look effortless,” Brizy says. “The most important things is that you make the true, natural beauty in your bride shine through,” Brizy adds.
Advice from Brizy: Once your big day is booked, make sure to schedule at least two pre-wedding hair appointments – one to test out and fine-tune the style and another about a week prior to the wedding for a trim and/or color service. To enhance the sultry “red carpet” look Xtreme Eyelash Extensions are a great way to do that. They are as natural as your own, but longer and thicker and there is no need for mascara in case you cry. One less thing to worry about on your honeymoon!
Steps for success:
• Make time for a profession eyebrow wax before your trial run and wedding.
• Get a quick organic facial for a natural glow, but avoid extractions before the shoot.
• Have your hair colored and deep conditioned. Aim for soft, shiny hair – not frizzy or dull hair.
• Prepare your hair as a blank canvas for that master piece. I recommend anti-gravity styling product by Kevin Murphy that will give you hold and memory for those long after-hour moments. Regardless of whether the bride, sister or close friend know how to do makeup, I always suggest working with a makeup artist (MUA). Makeup for a shoot and street makeup are very different looks. A bride is not any different than a model. If you want great images then it’s worth a little extra time to look flawless, because at the end, you only have those images to remember your big day.
