In my opinion it is always best to go with professionals on your wedding day for hair & make up. However, there are so many pre-wedding events (engagement party, engagement photo session, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, etc.) that need extra styling, which could break your budget if you use a professional each time. Luckily for brides, there are many resources online to help kick your game up a notch. I've picked a few of my favorite recent beauty posts for brides to experiment with for the big days before the big day. Enjoy!
#1. Sweet halo braid. This look has come a long way from Heidi references thanks to celebrities showing it off lately. The Wedding Chicks give a great tutorial on how to halo your hair.
#2. False eyelashes. Offbeat bride posted a great article on demystifying the technique of how to (correctly) apply false eyelashes. This one gets me everytime and I'm very psyched to try this girl's advice.
#3. Coiffed up do. What better an expert for a serious up do than a New York Fashion Week hairstylist? Pearson Knight is featured in this YouTube video on how to perfect a coiffed up do, this timeless look will give you years of event ready hair. YouTube is a GREAT resource for beauty tips- just search key words and you will find endless tutorials.
#4. Brisk braid wrap. Bayside Bride's intern Kate has perfected the easiest yet chicest hair style that I've seen in awhile. This may become my new lazy day but need to look polished go to look.
