Nashville Wedding Hair and Makeup Trends for Spring/Summer 2009

Friday, May 1, 2009

Friday, May 1, 2009 Don't forget to check out the two bridal events this weekend - Brides Against Breast Cancer and the Franklin Bridal Show. It is with much excitement that I share the keyboard with Sherita Leslie, an Ashley's A-list makeup and hair extraordinaire.  Sherita is know for making Nashville brides look even more beautiful.  I am honored to have her share her beauty trends for spring and summer.  This girl knows her stuff and her huge list of celebrity event / clients demonstrate that she is fashion forward and keeps a pulse on what's hot.  I can't wait for my "diva day" with Sherita, as she calls it! Guest Post: Sherita Leslie, a top-notch makeup and hair artist Most people during the bridal season get excited about the new trends for dresses. For me, it's all about the new beauty trends with hair and makeup. I love watching the bridal runway shows to get a glimpse of what's going to be hot for the upcoming season. Here are my top 4 picks of beauty trends to look for. Accessorize Your Hair You can never under estimate the power of accessories. Here I took a simple side ponytail (which is also going to be big this year) and made it into a really fun and elegant style. This season brides will be wearing everything from brooches, silk flowers,feathers and hair vines made with crystals or pearls.

A Fuchsia Lip I love this trend from designer Carmela Sutera she felt that a fresh face with a colorful lip was a simple way for women to look chic and pretty. I totally agree with her. Because a stronger lip complements a bride's healthy glow and looks amazing in pictures.

Purple is the New Black Here I gave Shannon a soft smokey lavender eye which is a fresh and edgy approach to a smokey eye. Sometimes blacks and browns can make your eyes appear smaller. So if opt to you use a lighter color it really opens them up. It also really looks fabulous on anyone with a darker complexion or green eyes. The key is to balance the color on your eyes with neutrals on your lips and cheeks.

Return to Retro There is big return to old Hollywood glam this year. Here we gave Jenny really beautiful coils of curls that frame her face. With her makeup we took a classic beauty approach with flawless skin and defined eyes. Instead of going with the usual retro red lip I opted for a soft coral. So she can easily take the look from day to night.
