What Is Going On Now In The World of Bridal Beauty?

THE BIG TRESSES TREND

Natural bridal makeup looks outranked the bolder beauty looks that I have created so far this season. As far as hair, it seems that we’re experiencing an 80’s hair revival. Monumental manes in general are back but, this latest tidal wave is coming in a rich, deep brunette hue. The blonde-centric editorials and ads have been infiltrated with dark-coiffed models like Cheryl Cole, who is probably most recognized for her luscious, dark chocolate brown hair locks. She looks radiantly gorgeous in this pic (I can only imagine how many cans of L’Oreal hairspray this hairstyle took!) and now you too can have luscious brunette tresses. Because our brides are definitely worth it, we would like to show you too how you can show off your sultry side.

 

Today’s hottest bridal hair is very brunette and very big bombshell beauty.

With their dramatic bustles and lace corsets, some of the gowns looked like they were snatched straight from the 18th century. Of course, they were accompanied by these gorgeous bun-chignon hybrids—the volume and slightly undone feel added some modern drama to the looks.

Bridal Beauty Trends – Spring/Summer 2012

Bridal beauty trends, tastes and styles are always changing, and here at Bridal Makeovers, we make it our job to update our skills and to dish out the latest and greatest wedding hair & makeup looks and ideas. This blog/gallery features some of our favorite beauty trends for 2012 brides.

Spring/Summer 2012 Bridal Beauty Trends

Spring/Summer 2012 Bridal Beauty Trends

We’re going to kick off a Bridal Makeup Spring/Summer 2012 Style post on the trends and  makeup must haves for the season!  Here’s a look at what this season’s makeup trends are. Brides will love The Bare Faced Chic look of this season’s natural ‘nude’  face that’s ruling the runways. The idea is that less is more and fresh faced look is in, in a big way.

While following trends will keep you fashion-forward, it’s best to keep it simple. I absolutely love the high-fashion treatment that classic bridal has been getting the past few seasons. It’s really refreshing to see unique gowns in unexpected colors, silhouettes, and fabrics. Since bridal designers are definitely thinking outside the box this season with colored gowns and printed wedding dresses that I got to thinking about all the creative ways to incorporate blossoming prints and patterns into bridal makeup artistry.

I feel you should pick one simple element, it could be a color, something in a sweet cotton-candy pink or something embellished with lace and covered in pearls and crystals, that’s going to be on-trend. Take one visual element and incorporate it into your wedding makeup palette. Another updated option is to almost reverse the smoky eye by applying a crystal/nude shadow and chocolate liner below the bottom lash line. I suggest easing up on the super lined, smokey eyes and just lining the eyes from the outer corners to the middle, like the models at the spring 2012 Dolce & Gabbana show.

Vidal Sassoon: Loss Of A Legend

"If you don’t look good, we don’t look good.” Vidal Sassoon

"If you don’t look good, we don’t look good.” Vidal Sassoon

How true of a statement this is! Vidal Sassoon, the man who made hairdressing “hip” and an “art” died 2 weeks ago, but not before leaving his mark on the world of fashion.

Hairdressing the ‘Sassoon’ way means working with the hair in its natural state and giving the wearer a hair style that works precisely for their style and ease. This was a totally new concept back in the 60’s. Vidal Sassoon was the innovator of ‘wash and wear hair’ therefor freeing women from the subjection of a weekly visit to the hair salon.

 

“My idea was to cut shape into the hair, to use it like fabric and take away everything that was superfluous.” Vidal Sassoon

“My idea was to cut shape into the hair, to use it like fabric and take away everything that was superfluous.” Vidal Sassoon

When Mr. Sassoon entered the beauty world he understood that for most women, a trip to the hairdresser meant having their hair slathered in Dippity-do, going under a dryer with hair set in tight, prickly brush-rollers for at least an hour, and then having their locks coiffed and teased mercilessly into a sort of  helmet-head hair style guaranteed to hold in place till the following weeks appointment. He started to think about hair and the client in an entirely new way.  Vidal Sassoon became a pioneer in the world of hairstyling by turning it upside-down with his new visions and concepts.

Hair by Vidal Sassoon - Spiral Curls

Vidal was inspired by modern architecture; the way the structure of buildings graced the land, ushered the modernist angles into his early hairstyling techniques. He translated this into the way he did hair. He knew how to create art on someone’s head that suited their bone structure and face shape. This is something that is not simply taught, but a gift that you are born with.

I have to be honest, it totally makes me smile when I think of this iconic gentleman slapping a clients hand away with the comb if they tried to touch it mid-cut or mid-style. He also lost patience when his clients gave too much input and once threw his shears in the air out of frustration, and they stuck in the ceiling! Classic!

Before you go blaming the hairstylist for your less than perfect styling experience, there are few things you can do that will guarantee top notch results – providing that you are working with a specialist in formal styling, not just the person who cuts and colors your hair. So, if you’re determined to get that dream bridal up-do, half up/half down, etc… hairstyle, then read on because we’ve got some easy tips that should help you get there. All it takes is a little hair preparation. Ladies, grab a pen and paper and take some notes…

Preparation Will Lead to Better Results

The fewer variables the hairstylist has to deal with, the better the outcome will be. If a bridal client comes in and her hair is completely unprepared for a formal hair styling, the process can be longer and there is a smaller chance that the result will be as fabulous as it would otherwise be.

It is smart to take a few extra steps to prepare for your appointment before the trial run/wedding. Your professional stylist will appreciate it and you’re much more likely to love the outcome. So basically, a client with hair “style ready” and in the proper condition… equals a happy hairstylist… equals kick-ass hair… equals a happy you!!! Continue Reading…
