Sarah - Bridals

I love Sarah's natural/romantic style.  She looks like a mixture of Anne Hathaway and Debra Messing.  Gorgeous!  Thanks to Emily Susan for the great pictures.

How To: Hair Bow

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of a hair bow I did on a bride.  After I posted the picture I got a lot of emails requesting a step-by-step for it.  So I made one!

1.  Begin by taking one small section of hair from each side of your head.  The bigger the sections, the bigger the bow.

2.  Tie the two sections together with an elastic to create a half ponytail.  Don't pull the ends through the elastic the last time you wrap it to create a loop like the picture on the right.

3.  Split the loop in half to create two smaller loops and clip one loop aside for later.

4.  Use your fingers to spread out the loop and push it flat against your head into a bow shape.  Insert one bobby pin going from top to bottom and one going from bottom to top. 

5.  Repeat on the opposite side to finish the bow shape.

6.  Pick up the remaining ends of the ponytail and wrap them up and around the elastic to hide it.  Secure it with bobby pins underneath.


Ta-da!

Tauri

Try not to die when you see these beautiful pictures captured by Ciara Richardson.  And TRY not to die when you see her dress.  And really try not to die when I tell you her mom MADE it.  Tauri's style is so perfect.
