Whether it’s the hair of a bride or the hair that we see for all events. The most important thing, that is standard for all event looks is the texture of 2017. Today’s texture has a soft natural feel. It’s not over sprayed with hairspray and will flow as the body moves.
Bridal hair should never be forced, it should be an extension of the overall look. We always ask brides to pin point a ‘look’- whether it be; Romantic, Classic, Trendy, Bohemian and so on. The wedding should reflect this overall look; from the decor, to the venue and of course the dress. Naturally, the hair should fall into this category as well. On your wedding day you want to look like the best version of yourself, so suitably is so very important when choosing your look.
The two biggest hair trends are soft elevated updos with a modern soft texture:
and extended hair left down with a soft wave and possible some hair pinned back off of the face:
Jewelry and hair accessories are also popular this season. Traditional half up half downs are bit dated because we are lacking hair in the front, which is an important part of wearing your hair down today. Cathedral veils are really on trend this season, especially with a modern updo:
Curve hugging, elegant, and a touch unexpected. You’re seeing crepe gowns everywhere this season. This crepe long sleeved wedding dress by Justin Alexander is the perfect cut for this seasons flattering silhouettes. The addition of sleeves also make it autumn appropriate. Versatile enough for pinned up hair or down with texture. This gown also leaves room for bold and opulent accessories. Think fringe earrings, a statement necklace, or delicate rings or bracelets.
A classic dress that is seeing textured, heavy bottoms for 2017. This dress has made a comeback in a big way. It’s flattering on so many body types and is timeless in its design. There’s a neo-lavishness about this seasons ball gowns. It really allows the bride to take a classic cut and spin it with extremely modern twists. Think blush or off white tones in the gown. Deconstructed/layered bottoms. Sleeves, straps, or décolletage.
Your wedding day makeup can really tie all the loose ends of your look together. This season, with the cleaner cuts and bolder silhouettes that we’re seeing, makeup is ethereal and soft. A big trend for fall is romantic hues of pinks. Even going monochromatic with it. Think washes of champagne and pink on the eyes, nude/pinks on the lips, and extra blush.
For the bride wanting a bolder look, going with a bold lip and extended lashes, marries the line between classic and contemporary. Tones of pinks and reds, with orange undertones, is still playful/bright enough for the season, without looking too dark. Once a lip color has cooler undertones, we’re starting to get more into winter tones.
