After giving some love to naturally kinky hair, we got calls for help from readers with less-coarse-but-still-curly hair. We reached out to one of our favorite salons to give us some solutions. Seattle-based VAIN hair and makeup stylists Emily and Belinda formed a tag team to tackle some looks (plus complementary makeup looks!) for curly- and wavy-haired brides. They offered up a couple of awesome beach-y looks and a dramatic wave-embracing updo.
This updo is by Emily, who works in the VAIN West Seattle and VAIN Ballard locations. I am loving the swirls and twists her waves bring to the look. Plus, Belinda's makeup look is super sweet and natural.
Same hair, new look! This time Emily lets the curls loose with a side ponytail and the addition of a little flower. This will let your hair still look like it's yours, but more sleek and controlled. Oh, and check out the added height at the crown.
With this look, we've got added bangs and some dramatic makeup. LOVE IT. Emily said of the style, 'I worked with her natural wavy texture to create a bun with rad rope twists that I kept seeing girls wearing when I was in Paris last year.'
Emily also said, 'By working with what the good Lord gave her, she's sure to have an updo that can outstand any amount of dancing.'
Thanks to VAIN hair stylist Emily and makeup artist (and waxer, threader, and awesome giver of facials!) Belinda for offering these gorgeous styles for us to ogle. If you're in the Seattle area, check out one of their three locations and get your purty on! And if you're blessed with natural curls or waves, how will you be handling them for your wedding?
