About Face Design Team

Almost everyday, we have brides ask us for recommendations about hair and make-up for their wedding day.  Now that the gown, veil and accessories are finalized, you still need to have that perfect wedding day hair or that flawless  foundation for your skin.  When asked, one company stands above the rest… About Face Design Team.  Recently, I asked their stylists to let me know what the top trends in bridal hair and make-up are… Enjoy!!!

At About Face Design Team, we not only get the pleasure, but also the honor of working with women on one of the biggest days of their lives. We understand the importance of this big day, and also realize that every bride wants to look her best. Our goal is to make that happen.  Regardless of your personal preference or style, ‘Trendy’, ‘Classic’, ‘Beachy’, or ‘Vintage’, we are here to help create that vision. Here are just a few of the most requested bridal looks to consider for hair and makeup on your special day. 

This wedding “do” is the low chignon; a classic that never goes out of style. The chignon placed low with a lot of texture, detail, and movement. Also, when placed on the side, the classic chignon can be very sleek and structured for the more formal look, or soft with whimsical curl, for an easy ‘beachy’ or romantic look. This hairstyle is the perfect up-do for a veil or any type of hair accessory.

The ‘Old Hollywood or vintage’ style, is beautiful for vintage inspired wedding themes.  This look may include structured pin curls and soft vintage waves with the hair up or down. Birdcage veils or vintage hair accessories complete this very glamorous look. Makeup styles are also inspiring a throwback to the vintage look, with simple soft eye shadow, black liquid eyeliner, and beautiful false eyelashes. To complete the look and keeping with the theme, we recommend bold, well defined lips in deep brick or bright reds, oranges, and even berry tones or hot pinks.

The most requested makeup look is the ‘Smokey Eye’. When done correctly, this look gives a sultry look while still being elegant and beautiful. In fact, the smokey eye is very flattering on all different kinds of eye shapes and is a beautiful way to showcase your eye color. It can be done with black, grays, and even brown tones to give a variety of color options. Ask your AFDT artist which colors will enhance your eye color best.  To complete this look, we suggest a soft blush and nude or pink lips.

Last, but not least, the ‘Beach golden/bronzy’ look. This style includes gold, bronze, or brown toned eye shadows with a bronzed complexion. Often the golden, bronze, or brown shadow may have light shimmer. The cheeks are often a soft bronzer or a peachy color blush, and could even include a light shimmer for that sun-kissed look. This is a perfect look to consider if you are wanting a more natural look, or are having a beach or outside wedding ceremony.
