Sleek Chignon + Seven-Degrees Wedding

The sleek chignon you see above may look simple, but let me be frank and admit that it certainly was not. Fulfilling once I nailed it? YES. Were we both thrilled at the result? YES.

Janine and I practiced her hair style a couple of times, trying out different parts, sectioning, and type of roll. She found a few celebrity pics for inspiration- Tyra Banks, Katherine Heigl. This bride has a head of beautifully thick, blonde hair that had to be pulled and rolled into the perfect coiffure. I appreciate her for being SO patient until I found the magic combination.

This Laguna Beach wedding was held at Seven-Degrees. It was my first time here, and I marveled at the combination of the natural setting against glass + steel modern architecture. I was also a fan of the balanced asymmetry, and these lovely ladies below.
Thank you to Duke Photography for these amazing images!

When Duke arrived, Janine's hair was complete 
+ was beginning her makeup.

I used a metallic grey eyeshadow + other
colors by MAC cosmetics

She's obviously VERY excited to wear the dress

Duke is able to make every bride look like 
a high fashion model. Incredible!

I can't get over how flawless, tan, sculpted & glowing she is! 
Do you notice those earrings?
A natural smile takes the cake. So do those lashes!
