Hiring a professional hair stylist and makeup artist takes a lot of pressure off the bride and her attendants.

This bride has naturally straight fine hair and was looking for a voluminous sexy, "side style."

To create the above style we washed her hair the night before with shampoo, did not use conditioner and blew dry her hair with a big round brush to give her hair lots of body. The next morning we began the updo process by starting at the nape, adding curls with a clamp-less iron.

For every row that was curled, a row of clip in extensions were worked into her hair giving her fullness and a natural look. (Extensions were also added to the back and sides.) Her hair was then swept to the side and pinned from the nape to just above the occipital bone. Then her hair was draped over the pins to hide them.

As for this bride's makeup, she wanted a dramatic smoky eye with a little color on her lips. We started out with her eyes using a warm pallet of colors to accent her gorgeous red hair. A primer was first applied to the lid, followed by a light brown shade. We worked the light brown from the middle of the eye to the corner. Next a bronze color was applied to the crease of the eyelid and a shimmery cream color was added right under the brow and in the inner corners.

Lastly, a black color was blended in the crease to give the eye that smoky look. Liquid eyeliner makeup was used to line the top lid and false eyelashes were applied. The shadow was then used under the eye as an eyeliner in the same fashion. Lighter in the inner corner, bronze in the middle and black in the outer corner. Then, a black liner was used.

A liquid foundation was applied to her face along with a peach colored blush which was generously applied. And finally, we spread a 24 hour lip stain to her lips and used a bright cranberry color lip gloss on top of the lip stain.
