CHAPTER 5: BRIDAL BRAIDS
Braids to go from always
a bridesmaid to bride.
Whether you’re the bride donning a one of a kind Oscar de la Renta, or a heirloom hand-me-down from generations ago; or you’re in the bridal party and want to shine but not over-shine, braids can help you navigate the sensitive line that is hair-styling during the fateful wedding season.
Here comes the braid!
If the dress has straps, our suggestion is to pair with a hair-up option (crown of braids) that mirrors the regal style of these cuts as well as shows off your neck, collar and cheek-bones in all their glory. Pair with demure but dramatic earrings and barely-there makeup (read: Urban Decay Naked Pallette) to complete this look.
BRAIDS TO CATCH THE BOUQUET
Your best friend is getting married, comes to you and tells you she is pulling a Charlotte York and wants coordinating bridesmaid dresses.What to do? Well, if there’s one domain you can express your style while not obliterating the bride’s style desires,it’s your hair.
For styles that are set to show off your shoulders (off the shoulder, one shoulder, sweetheart), we recommend opting for a mane of bountiful curls accentuated with a delicate braid headband.
THE BRAID TO WALK DOWN THE AISLE
It’s your special day, one that you’ve been dreaming of since you were a little girl – or maybe not. You might be a girl who always does that little something extra with her hair, or maybe you always have your hair down. Either way, this is the occasion to accentuate your style with a beautiful braid. Appropriate for avant-garde, beach, traditional or even Royal weddings, an artful up-do with a braided lace detail is a standout style. And when the reception party gets roaring and you want to let it down, a quick un-pin leaves you with exquisite waves.
Laque Noire provides a long lasting extra strong hold with an integral anti-humidity shield so your hair holds in place as you dance through the night. It’s soft to touch effect means your new husband or handsome date can still slip his fingers through your hair for that romantic kiss. The cherry on top of the icing: no residue, easy to remove with a brush so you wake up feeling fresh and beautiful.
