#adamlovesmolly: wedding day hair!

Another wedding update! I absolutely loved my wedding day hair. It was chic, simple and held up all night, through drinks and lots of dancing.

Gina Barrington, of Wide Eyed Beauty, made all of the girls look amazing. She took in our Pinterest pictures and explanations of what we wanted and delivered above and beyond. I always wear my hair down, so I was incredibly nervous about wearing it up, but it looked flawless!

Here are Gina's bridal hot to do's for brides:

Do something slightly whimsical and undone- super polished hair is so dated. Slightly messy side buns, or tousled waves are just perfection for wedding days. 

On hand products of mine:

always a great dry texturizing spray (oribe, or Oscar blandi) dry shampoo - matte and colorless of course

beach salt spray
a great hairspray- I like Bumble & Bumbles classic, Elnett, or Sebastian classic

a plumping spray or mousse for crown volume especially for finer hair

a polishing pomade to just do light handed shaping and for slight texture and separation. 
I always like to start by spraying crown with volumizer and salt spray, and really work it in with a hair dryer. After spray the dry texturizer allover for body.  At this point, if it's an updo I separate the hair into sections and give a nice wave or curl to the sections needed, and start back combing at the crown for good volume and base. It's very important to have that base to start a great looking loose updo or bun.  I decide my shape and start rolling, tucking and pinning sections. I love incorporating twists and braids into it also. 

 If the bride has a lot of hair a great way to start the process is to take the bottom half section of the hair from the neck and twist into small tight bun and secure. Then you can curl and twist and cross and wrap- so many options to build a gorgeous look from this! pins! pins! and pins! 

Gina is a rockstar. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside, and let me tell you, girl is STUNNING. I am so thankful for Wide Eyed Beauty and want EVERY bride in the Milwaukee/Chicago area to know about them. I have never felt more beautiful, polished or put together in my life. I didn't have to worry about a think because Gina and Maggie are so professional and talented.
