Julie Trusts Her Planner, Finds the Perfect Team for Her Nashville Wedding - Part 1: Hair & Makeup

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Most of the brides that we feature are super brides, who are obsessed with weddings long before their big day or typical brides who quickly start to enjoy wedding planning once they are engaged.  

And then there is Julie.  Julie describes herself as "least like a bride."  She's never had an interest in weddings, not the TV shows nor the pretty gowns, and getting engaged didn't change any of that for her.  She obviously wanted a beautiful wedding but the steps to get there were of zero interest to her.  What did she do?  She hired a wedding planner, Michelle of Burlap and Brooches,  whose vendor recommendations she followed exactly to create her wedding "army" and she let her pro team take it from there.

We'll feature Julie's wedding day details tomorrow. Today, I'd like to share her day at the hair salon as I'm sure her experience will help any of you who need hair and makeup for your big day.

Finding the Right Stylist

After learning that her own stylist didn't do up-dos and was too far from her East Nashville wedding venue, Julie turned to her wedding planner for a recommendation for a salon closer to town that could do the hair style she wanted.  Her planner directed her to Julie, co-owner of J. Bangs, a comfortably chic salon in Nashville's Green Hills area. 

Julie contacted the salon and scheduled a trial session with Julie.  During her session, she appreciated Julie's attentiveness and willingness to modify the few things that she wanted to change about the style.  Pleased with the service, Julie scheduled her wedding day hair and makeup appointments and reserved a few appointments for her bridesmaids.

Wedding Day Starts at the Salon!

Julie's wedding day started at J. Bangs Salon.  She arrived at the salon at 10 am and her services began.  Katie, her maid of honor and sister, brought champagne and the bridesmaids began to arrive for their services and to celebrate the beautiful bride.  

Julie wasn't picky about most aspects of her wedding, but she did want professional hair and makeup.  As a girl who loves makeup, and even works in the makeup industry, she wanted a pro to give her a good foundation for her wedding day.  The last time she had her makeup applied professionally was prom, and it was a horrible experience.  She gave a pro another shot because she really wanted a good primer, false lashes, and a look that would last most of her wedding day.

Julie of J. Bangs gave her the foundation and the extras that she couldn't do on her own, and Julie was pleased.  There were no surprises.  Her look was very similar to her trial run and included the changes that she requested.  She was really happy with how her hair and makeup looked and so were her bridesmaids, who had never been to the salon but trusted Julie's recommendation.

Julie says, "everyone did a great job" and luckily, her wedding photographer, Ian Riley, was there to capture the sweet moments of the morning and all of the fabulous bridal hair and makeup!  

This bridal styles are timeless and certainly pinterest-worthy!  Enjoy.

Julie, a no-fuss bride, allowed each girl to decide if they wanted pro service and which style they wanted.  Three of the four maids decided they wanted their hair professionally done and one opted to do her own hair. Clockwise: Jenny, Ashley (did own hair), Ashley, Katie, Bride Julie
