Bridal FAUX-HAWK Up-Do
October 2, 2013
Congratulations to beautiful bride Rebecca who got married a couple of months ago at the Botanical Garden,in NYC!! Besides being very sweet, I really enjoyed working with her because she was quite bold! She came in for a trial, and brought in as inspiration, a photo of a model with a faux-hawk (aka:a fake mohawk) hairstyle, and said she wanted something like that, but bridal! Of course I loved the challenge, and designed for her a messy up-do that was a faux-hawk, but with fishtail braids intertwined all over it. And we LOVED IT!!! This up-do was perfect for someone like Rebecca, who as a dancer, is used to keeping her hair quite long (so she can easily put it up in a bun for practice), which gave me lot's of length to work the braids. If your hair is not as long, there are alternatives, like incorporating some clip-on extensions (the same color as your hair) to add that length and volume. Her make up was a nice soft bridal smokey eye, lashes, natural fresh looking skin, and a pink lips. I look forward to meeting more bold and fun brides like Rebecca, so we can add a little spice and fun to bridal looks!!!
