2017 Hair + Makeup Trends

  • Very natural looking makeup. So the bride looks and feels like herself.
    • These included nude or pink lips
    • Light contouring
    • Soft brown eyeshadows and natural looking lashes
  • Braids, braids, braids.
    • Whether it was in a half-up/half-down style or full braid, almost all of our brides requested a braid.
  • Loose romantic updos, that are slightly messy, but look effortless.

2018 Wedding Trends

2018 is shaping up to be a little bolder regarding beauty. More brides are going glam, think winged liner and bold lips. Or they are wanting a little sparkle and glitter on their eyes, because why not? Go big or go home. Plus the theme for 2018 weddings is celestial, so it’s the perfect time to go a little more bold on the wedding day with hair and makeup.

Hair-wise, some of the trends or 2017 are staying, but more so the beachy wave is coming back. No half-up/half-down styles, braids or updos. Just left completely down and styled. Some brides are even matching their glam makeup with equally bold and glamorous hair. Think old-Hollywood glamour with classic curls or full-bodied hair. These brides are wanting to make an impression and we are not mad about it.
