Bridal Hairstyles: Feminine & Floral

photo © the_amanda
Step 1The concept here is that there are ways to make short hair look different for your wedding day — no extensions necessary. The goal is simplicity and elegance. Apply a golf ball-sized blob of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Take Charge Style-Managing Mousseicon from root to tip; this gives the hair body and shape and works with heat to set the style.

Step 2
Using a brush like Conair Velvet Touch For Blow-Dry Styling Short To Medium Length Hair Of All Texturesicon, lift roots as you blow-dry small sections at a time to add curl and volume. Then grab the top part till just above the ears, draping hair back into a twist and securing with bobby pins at the back.

Step 3
Accentuate with a decorative hairpin. Finish with Aveda Brilliant Hair Spray, Medium Holdicon — you want sheer hold and polish, not crunch!

Bridal Hairstyle: The Beach Wave

Step 1
Blow-dry hair — using no product — then apply a calming serum (like Rusk Sheer Brilliance Smoothing and Shining Polishericon) and a couple of drops of finishing cream (like Aveda Control Pasteicon); distribute evenly with fingers, avoiding roots so you don’t weigh hair down.

Step 2
Use a medium-sized barrel curling iron set at medium heat: the easiest to use is Braun Smoothstyler Cordless Stylericon - cordless means you have the freedom to style anywhere, anytime! Take small sections (1.5 inches) of hair and wrap at a slant around the barrel; hold for a few seconds, release, and let cool. Work from the back of the head, starting at the nape and moving forward. Grab hair about an inch from the scalp so there’s a bit of slack (allowing you to twist around the barrel).

Step 3
Don’t use a lot of hairspray because, ultimately, the curl should relax a bit, as it would if you’d spent a day in the sun and surf. Finish with a pomade like Biolage by Matrix Curl Defining Cremeicon — smear a little from the middle of the hair shaft to separate curls and alleviate frizz and flyaways.

Trendy Wedding Favors

brought to you by Beau-Coup

Just like baby shower favors, today's trendy wedding favors can also follow a theme. For example, if you're holding a beach wedding, favors such as beach-chair picture frames or ornamental sea shells would fit well.

Many couples use wedding favors to illustrate their themes. Popular "punny" favors are key chains, which could symbolize the Key to Happiness or chocolate for a Love is Sweet theme. A recently popular wedding favor is a seedling in a miniature flower pot, which represents a Love Grows theme.

Weddings around holidays are perfect candidates for trendy themed favors. Ornaments are a great touch for December weddings while sparklers and matches would be perfect for July weddings.

Finally, cultural weddings abound with trendy wedding favor ideas. For example, a silver fortune cookie place card holder or double happiness chopsticks would be fitting favors for Chinese weddings.
