‘Tis the season to say “I do!” for some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities – Kim and Kanye’s Italian nuptials kicked off the season with their extravagant location, high-rolling guest list, and hefty bill. Next down the aisle was the very stylish socialite Olivia Palermo, who shocked her fashionista followers by sporting a sweater and skirt combo at her civil ceremony and intimate country reception. With the bar set quite high, all-American girl Jessica Simpson celebrated her big wedding day the best way she knows how: sweet, sparkly, and simply stunning.
Simpson took a classic approach to her bridal look; warm, romantic makeup, a glamorous gown, and pinned back long, loose waves. When it comes to your wedding, perfection is key and that means ensuring that the timing, technique and last touches for your tresses are all in order. So whether you’re looking for waves, curls, or a classic bridal updo, we asked our team of top special event stylists for their tips on getting and maintaining your mane on the big day.
- Keep your eyes on the clock. If you’re not set to walk down the aisle until sunset, don’t get your hair done at sunrise! If you wait around all day, your updo will be loose and limp by the time you read your vows, so try to schedule your appointment only a few hours before the show goes on. If you’re pressed for time, pick a look that you know will hold in your hair all day.
- Ditch the perfect doll curls and create a classic retro look by requesting finger waves from your stylist. This method involves twisting curls up into pinned ringlets for a few hours prior to your ceremony and gently combing them out right before. The result? Natural, shining waves that maintain their shape for days!
- Always dreamed of the perfect wedding day updo? Ask you stylist what techniques are available. Senior stylist Graziella Lembo creates her clients’ custom bridal looks with a unique hair stitching technique in which she actually sews hair into place! The best benefit? Hair that stays up for hours, without all of the pesky and pointy bobby pins.
