To Up Do or Not Up Do

As you scan the internet and magazines for your perfect hairstyle on your big day, you’re faced with many choices: updo, half-up/half-down, curls, a bun and more. We want our brides to look and feel their best, as they get ready to say “I do,” so we compiled a list of different hair style inspirations for long and short hair to help you choose. As a bonus, we also have an insightful interview from Christine Pay, owner and artist of Brushworx, one of our preferred vendors who gives her advice on wedding day hair. 

Q & A with  Christine Pay: Brushworx

 RNW: What are some tips brides can use to prepare their hair before being styled for their wedding day?

 CP: A few months before it's a good idea to start focusing on hair condition. Make sure you are using good shampoo and conditioner and getting regular trims. Have your color touched up about one week before the wedding, so that you don't have any regrowth . On the wedding day, wash and condition your hair. Be sure your conditioner does not contain any silicone products; that can make it difficult to hold a curl. Also, do not flat iron it if you want a style with curl or body.

 RNW: How long should brides and bridal parties expect for hair to be completed from beginning to end?

 CP: It takes about thirty to forty-five minutes for each service on bridesmaids. Example- hair and makeup would be 1 - 1/2 hours. Brides are usually given one hour per service but can be done in forty-five minutes if needed. We like to add extra time so that everything is perfect and the bride feels pampered!

 RNW: Your company has several members on its team. How does the selection process work for brides to select their hair stylists? 

 CP: We speak with each bride to get to know her and her unique likes and needs. Then we place her with the artist that will be her best fit for both style and personality.

 RNW: Does the stylist do both hair and makeup? 

 CP: Yes, all of our 14 artists do both hair and makeup.

 RNW: What are some of the latest hair trends, short and long hair, brides want for their wedding day? 

 CP: The softer, undone styles and Hollywood waves continue to be popular, but lately we are seeing a return to classic glamour reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn.

 RNW: Lastly, what would you like our readers to know about Brushworx? 

 CP: That when our brides or clients come to us it's all about You! We know that every ones needs, likes and concerns are different and we treat each person with the utmost respect and always listen. We strive to bring our professionalism and friendliness into everything we do.
