Modern Vintage Hair & Makeup

The news is out! Wedding trends are beginning to take a very interesting direction! This season we have seen brides embrace antique styles with rustic looking decor. That concept is now beginning to emerge in their clothing, hair, and makeup!

Is there anything more sexy and feminine than the 1920s? I love to see this era intermingle with the modern world. There is something so theatrical about pairing a top hat with an elegant gown. Angling your head piece can soften a look into appearing more romantic!

I predict that the upcoming fashion trends for weddings in 2015/2016 will be the most innovative yet, bringing a modern spin to classic style!

Rodan and Fields with Rachel Barker

before-and-after-reverselaura

For anyone reading this who may have skin concerns, I wanted to take a minute and talk about a product line called Rodan and Fields. Rachel Barker, a close friend of mine, introduced me to this line and I have to admit that I am pretty intrigued by it.

Rodan and Fields is developed by two Stanford trained Dermatologists. This brand has been featured everywhere, from Oprah magazine to Vogue. What I find most exciting about this line is that it has a little something for everyone. There are four major components: Redefine, Reverse, Unblemish,  and Soothe. Of the four components, I find that the Redefine is my favorite part of the line.

Redefine contains high amounts of peptides, antioxidants, and other such anti aging remedies. The brand is also so confident in successful results that they provide a 60 day money back guarantee. What is there to lose? I may pick up an order soon to test on my facial clients, and see for myself how this works.

If any of you reading this are interested in learning more or trying out the line, please check out my friend Rachel’s page: rbarker.myrandf.com .

These are a few photos of my most recent wedding.

I collaborated with Carmalita Magana, a wonderful local hair stylist. The bride’s hair-style features a classic dutch braid with a loosely tucked bun in the back. This is a gorgeous greek-inspired look that would make any woman feel like a goddess on her wedding day. The makeup features pristine airbrush foundation and contouring with light eyes in gold and brown hues. We had so much fun creating the look for the bridal party! The photographs are all by Jennifer Joye, professional wedding photographer extraordinaire! I will be posting more photos of the hair and makeup soon.
