Thank you Ariel, I'm blushing! Shanah (aka Kerosene Deluxe) Reply oohhhh! i've been waiting for her pics to drop. i had a bit of an OBB crush on her over on the forum. so.frackin.hot! Reply Kerosene! I am totally taking pictures of your hair to my stylist to see if she can do something similar. Your grandma is hard core! Love it! Reply Wow! I love her hair and makeup and Granny. She looks like a piece of art. Reply Re: the "tacky" debate – Yeah, everyone should be able to share their opinions. But it probably gets annoying to Ariel when she sees people being negative to brides that are just doing their thing. Reply SO MUCH AWESOME! Reply Best Updo EVAR! She's so pretty! @~>~~ Reply You are BEAUTIFUL! Your gorgeousness is so inspiring! I LOVE the photos, but when can we hear deets about the event itself? Reply Dixie, I'll post the full raport soon! Reply I thought she was Jennifer Tilly at first! Hotness! Reply Oh, grandmothers. I wish my grandma & grandpa were still around to see me married (and give the world the finger with me!) Awesome hair. Awesome grandma. Awesome hubby (presumably). That girl's got it all! Reply Wicked Sweet Hair. Just wondering what brand of hair color your red is?? Do you happen to know the name or number of the color?? I am a stylist and would love to put this red in my hair for my wedding. Reply Hi Stina, The red's I use are either 'pillarbox red' from Manic Panic or 'poppy red' from Directions (Directions one is the best one in my opinion) The key is to leave it it as long as possible, the dye is natural so not harmfull…I covered mine with a plastic cap and let it sit for 6 hours… Reply I used 'punky colour' at first but the colour didn't turn out as it was supposed to be. I don't recommend that brand..I re-dyed it later on with the Manic Panic one mentioned above, which is a lot better. Directions,in my opinion, is the best dye… Reply Thanks so much for the info!! I have used manic panic many times. I have found not to have great results with pillarbox…dang it. I have used the vampire red and found it had more holding power just deposits a bit darker. hmmmm Directions I have used as well and your right about it being the better choise. Wish me luck. I have untill next Halloween to grown my hair out. Right now it is all Black. Dang why do i keep doing that. 🙂 Reply cancel the wedding! I think you've just turned me, you utter beauty, you! seriously. wow. gorgeous. beautiful. wonderful woman you. Reply That pic is absolutely stunning! Reply Oh my goodness. Seriously amazing. Reply I wish her grandma was mine. I think that is the best pic EVER of a bride with a guest! Reply special effects – cherry bomb – ive tested all of the temp dyes, and this brand lasts the longest. Reply kerosene — I re-posted this photo over at my site (and wanted to make sure that it's ok… .!!!!) but I need to credit your photographer. Whose photos are these? Also, absolute hair LOVE! I have already passed this post along to one of my stylists! Reply also, who did your hair? I want to credit the hair artist as well. Reply Hi Rachel, the picture wasnt taken by a photographer..it's just a random shot my dad took:) Hair is by myself and Maely Sargent Reply Oh man!! I love it! She's so gorgeous & I can't get enough of her style!! *gush, gush* Reply I lovelovelove her dress, hair, make-up, everything! Reply eeep!!! love it! where did you find your veil? I cannot find one like that anywhere. Reply […] Bride profiles · No comments You may remember when we featured Kerosene Deluxe's amazing gothabilly hair a few months back — now here's the full […] Reply This MADE my day! Reply how do you get the curls to maintain their shape like that, i have tried and tried and can't figure it out… Reply i can't figure it out…is all the hair dyed red or only certain sections??? Reply Only certain sections are dyed red, and then the rest is black. Reply Googled this sort of hairstyle/up-do came across this site. I am looking for hairstyles/up-dos, but for some reason I am finding no step by steps or how-tos for styles like this. Any suggestions from anyone? Reply I love your hair! It's so beautiful…Did you do it yourself? Do you have any tips or tricks? Thanks so much!!! Reply Oh wow, I love that hair style.
