Which is exactly what I did on Sunday w/ my dear friend and fellow blogger Christine Estima. As many of you know I'm really getting into hair lately...esp. bridal hair and updos b/c 1. it's very useful and makes me much more marketable 2. it makes me a lot more money then just doing makeup alone...and I can always use more money ;)
So I ordered a bunch of bridal hair dvds which are really great and go step by step through the hairdos...and they give written instruction throughout the dvds...so far they seem pretty easy esp. when everything is broken down step by step. It's really helping me get over my hair phobia...I've realized before I just didn't know the steps to take and that's where I was getting frazzled plus just understanding that some things do take time and you just have to take the time to do them...before I just always thought I'm taking too long.
I have a mannequin head that I practice on to sometimes but it really is better to practice on a real person...the hair parts better, it's smoother, you can work on pressure and tension more and Christine's hair is very long. So Christine and I had a great time just hanging out while I played w/ her hair, practiced a few curling and pinning techniques and worked on some backcombing and styling. Mostly, I just wanted to practice some half updos for a bride I had today coming to me for a trial. The trial went fabulously btw and I can't wait to share some pics of her on her wedding day later this mth b/c she is going to look gorgeous!
Here's some pics of Christine and I hanging out, styling hair and being overall sexy ladies lol! Btw it was bloody HOT and HUMID yesterday in Toronto...and no AC at Chrissy's place so excuse the shine lol!
After we finished the Bridal Hair we just shook her hair out for that Voluminous, Sexy Bed Head Look that Christine pulls off so well...what a Hottie ;)
