The wedding day: Natural romantic hair and makeupThursday, March 16, 2017
Can't believe it's already been a month since the wedding!
A took me out to our favourite Italian restaurant for a surprise lunch on Sunday. One of the topics on discussion during lunch was how I should get my hair cut. You see, I loved my hair at the wedding but now it's getting too long and in need of a change.
Tips for your wedding hairA trial or two before the big day helps. The end of year Christmas events were a great excuse to test the looks and a great starting point from which to make adjustments.
Hair - Pony/BlazeAt Blaze on Broadway in Newmarket, they give you a menu to choose from for the most popular styles. I knew that I'd wanted a low chignon, with soft braids down the side and the bun in a neat knot. Getting my and the mother in law's hair done together was a little scary. What if she didn't like hers? Luckily everything went fine. Whew.
They also do haircuts and A the brother in law looked quite dashing in his new do, so much cleaner than when he came back from the cold and wild 4 month adventure in Alaska and the mainland States.
Makeup - Bobbi BrownChosen for their philosophy of natural looks, I think my bridesmaids had fun choosing their own colours and picking out an item to keep. Be aware that Bobbi Brown won't do fake eyelashes, but I liked them better for standing up to their beliefs. I got their lipstick in the shade uber pink, which is soft, romantic and subtle. I have used quite a few of their ranges and was very glad with the final result.
For a girl who doesn't normally put much makeup or style her hair beyond the natural big and frizzy or low or high ponytails, the wedding day pampering was a fun exercise. Best excuse ever!
