Helen- Epic natural curls, glowing skin and pink lips for a Douai Abbey wedding

Brides, Church, Country Leave a Comment

For those of you that know me, I mean really know me, know how beyond bloody lucky I consider myself to meet gorgeous, confident, sexy ass, exquisite both inside and out Brides. And how even luckier I am that they ask me to create flawless, cool, unfussy and beautiful hair and make up looks for their wedding day.

Helen got in touch with me, predominantly for some epic, flattering and super cool hair styling. Part 80’s big, part 18th century corkscrew curl and part renaissance painting. Helen didn’t want her hair to look over done, nor did she want it to look weak and frizzy. I won’t show you the before photo of Helen’s hair, just let it be known she was beyond thrilled with what we did. For Helen’s trial I blew dry her undone waves and curls straight and then re set into tighter more uniformed curls with tongs and Babyliss Hot Sticks. As there were more people to do on her wedding morning I asked she had her hair dried straight the afternoon before so that I could jump in with the second step on the wedding morning.

I also don’t think I’ve ever had a bride with more luminous skin- the kind of skin that makes you take a sharp intake of breath. We kept everything else very minimal, a soft slick of liner to bring out those blue eyes, romantic blusher and a pink shade on the lips.

Helen requested a hair freshen up and tanned glow for her beautiful Mumma, she had already had eye lash extensions so I softened a flick around the eye, shaded and contoured and we were good to go. Helen’s flower girl/ bridesmaid wanted similar treatment to Helen so like Helen’s look we used Yogi wand tongs and Babyliss Hot Sticks for corkscrew curl lushness. I brushed both sets through with my fingers and Bumble and Bumble Brilliantine.
