Two Part Wedding Day Hair Tutorial | Hey Lovely Makeup | Style Me Pretty

One thing that myself and Erica (owner of Hey Lovely Makeup) often see at weddings where we share the same client is that the majority of the time, a bride's hairstyle rarely stays fresh all the way through the reception. While brainstorming one day with a shared client who couldn't decide whether to wear her hair down or in an updo, we suggested that she wear her hair down through the end of the ceremony and then have her hair styled into an updo during the cocktail hour. Our sweet bride ended up going with the suggestion and it was perfect! Not only was she able to have two different hair styles, but also her hair was up and away from her face during the dancing as well as her hair being perfect and fresh for the pictures until the getaway! 

Since it was such a success for our client, we decided to put together a tutorial for brides that are looking at doing the same thing in an easy step by step format!
