Maja and I met through her amazing wedding planner, Lindy Dowling. Maja was sure she wanted something fresh, natural with super clear skin for her wedding day but didn’t know wether to have her hair up or down. During both her trials we experimented with both.
I loved Maja, a woman of many interesting facets. Cool, classic and full of understated elegance. She also had a wonderful sense of humour. Behind this multi cultured, mature lady was a love of heavy metal, drum and bass and rock, notice Kerrang radio on in the background!
For Maja’s trial number one we tried a chignon. She loved it but didn’t feel totally comfortable with it. It was a little fussy for her taste. For her second trial we gave her a low french roll and whilst she really loved it she wasn’t in love with it. I let her hair down and pulled bits away from the side making sure I gave her subtle volume to compliment her facial shape, features and to support her veil. The hair left down was soft, graceful and set into delicate waves.
Maja’s makeup was kept very simple, I targeted correcting concealer on areas Maja needed it and knew would feel more confident for wearing it. I used a Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturiser on her face overall. Lightweight glowy coverage was what Maja requested. We also used subtle cluster lashes to enhance and open her eye shape and mixed smokey greys, peach tones and a touch of shimmer to enhance her skin tone and eye colour.
I also gave her beautiful Mumma a blow dry, a full face of glowing makeup and attached her head piece. A gorgeous lady just like her daughter. Maja’s Maid of Honour was treated to elegant beach style hair- something she had always coveted, and a smokey eye.
How elegant is Maja’s Mumma!? Absolutely stunning lady, with incredible eyes and smile.
Isn’t she just luminous!? The epitome of elegant bridal beauty.
I just loved styling the Mother of the Bride’s hair. It sat perfectly and the brush out was just gorgeous to do. She actually got a little emotional when I had finished it!
And the happy couple!
