When Andrea came in to Eco Heads for her first wedding hair trial, I knew it was going to be a treat to work with her. She is the kind of bride who's heart and smile cast a genuine appreciation for life. As I got to know her a little bit more, and discovered her carefree yet tasteful spirit, the vision for her wedding day began to form its roots. She asked for something slightly bohemian, and a little romantic. We looked through several photos on Pinterest to get an idea of the direction we wanted to go. In addition, we talked about the style of her wedding, her dress, and the feeling she wanted to have on her big day. Andrea told me she was getting married in Long Beach, and that the reception would be outdoors. She wanted something that felt secure, but not too "done." I suggested a loose braided up do with lots of face framing tendrils. Andrea was all in.
After her first trial, we both decided that adding some buttery blonde balayage highlights would accentuate the softness of the style, and really make the look come together. In addition, I suggested we do a haircut and add long layers throughout with face framing layers in front. By doing this, I added just the right amount of volume and texture. I cut off a couple inches since her hair was so long. The result was that her hair was much more manageable and ready to be integrated into this beautiful updo. In addition, I created a personalized sustainable succulent hair piece to compliment the updo style.
The whole look came together beautifully, and she was simply glowing on the big day. And by the smile on his face, I'm pretty sure her new husband thought so too!
Thank you Andrea, for allowing me to take this journey with you!
