Bridal Hair and Makeup Showcase - Wedding Expo March 2014

We had a great time meeting new brides and showcasing our wedding hair and airbrush makeup at the Toowoomba City Golf Club Bridal Expo.

Hair Stylists Hannah Rodhouse & Sarah Courtney 
Makeup Artist Marley Hammond 

Our makeup artist Marley created a look for our bridesmaid model that would compliment a variety of people. The makeup she created on our bride Melinka tied in perfectly with our classic, vintage style that we were going for.

Hannah created a classic look for our brunette model Melinka. She used a GHD straightener, this created a soft flowing look and smoothed the hair at the same time. We knew from early on what dresses our models were wearing. This is very important, it is vital that styles compliment your face shape, your dress while at the same time ties in with the theme of your wedding.

Hair Stylist Hannah Rodhouse, Model Melinka.

Our blonde model Chloe had a hair style that is perfect for bridesmaids. A soft upstyle that's not too structured and sleek. Sarah did this by curling all the hair with a conicle hot tong. This thermal tool gives a tighter and more textured curl while creating volume.

Model Melinka, hair styled by Hannah Rodhouse, Makeup by Marley Hammond. Melinka's dress was beautiful and classic. The hair and makeup worked well the dress, this sort of look would be perfect for a vintage themed wedding. 

Model Chloe Hair styled by Sarah Courtney Makeup by Marley Hammond. Having the pulled off the face either works well or doesn't at all! But in this case having the hair pulled back and keeping it textured and soft looked beautiful.  And the fullness at the back finished the style perfectly.

Why not try a hair piece instead of a veil. It looks amazing and you stand out from the rest.

How to put in a bridal veil

Check out our video on how to put a bridal veil into you hair style.

We like to try your veil on at your trial but if you forget to bring it we like to explain the process. We educate your bridesmaids on how to put in the veil and what to be careful of.

A few pointers;

  • talk to your hairstylist about which way the comb needs to go for the desired hairstyle and/or position of the veil.
  • test where the veil will go and the length it will fall at the front
  • use a base to pin into and talk to your stylist about how to remove as it can effect how it is put in
  • explain in detail to your partner or father or who ever is lifting the veil at the alter on how to put the veil back so not to smudge your make-up or fluff your hair (get them to check out this video with tips and pictures at the end)
  • make sure your chief bridesmaid checks your veil when it is moved so it doen't stick out in the picture
  • always get extra pins for touch ups to the hair or veil
  • always use your hand to protect hair and face from the veil

I hope these tips are helpful for your on your special day!
