My wedding was nearly 5 years ago. There is little to nothing I would change about that day. That being said, I probably could have taken some pressure off myself by opting to have someone else style my hair (...hint hint, Brides!) As a performer, I often had to do my own hair and felt pretty confident about my capabilities. Also, my choice to not hire a professional was a result of a having had my hair done once as a bridesmaid and I just didn't feel myself.
I realize now it's all about finding the right person to take care of hair and make up and scheduling a trial run. When I learned that my personal hair stylist Breanna Keiter had launched her own business, I thought it would be fun to "make good" on my choice to do my own hair and have her use my locks for a bridal hair inspo shoot. (Breanna is also a make up artist - featured here!) We were joined by my friends Lauren, Lindsey, Ciara, and photographer Sarah Bode-Clark to bring you several different options to consider for your big day.
1 | CLASSIC BEAUTY
Sculpted and sleek vintage style off the face.
2 | THE UNDONE BRIDE
Soft and low to the neck with a DIY vibe
3 | THE WILDLY CONTAINED BRIDE
Emphasized natural curl texture, frizz free and piled high. Wild, but contained.
4 | BOHO BRIDE
Romantic soft curls brushed out with soft texture, braided.
Thank you, ladies, for such a fun day! I was so glad I had a date night planned to put the "up-do" to good use ;)
Hire Breanna and Sarah for your wedding! They will take great care of you!
