Wedding hair: "Amsale's architectural aesthetic called for a classic bridal hairstyle," says Giovanni Giuntoli, hairstylist for Tearsheet/Redken. "But, the unique fabrications and soft details on the gowns meant the styles needed a freshness to balance the look, too. We did a new take on the classic high chignon style, and added shine at the end with Redken Vinyl Glam 02 Mega Shine Spray, $18.50."
Wedding makeup: "This look was all about refined and polished beauty," says makeup artist Daniel Martin. "We focused on creating balanced-looking skin with Koh Gen Do Concealer for Professionals, $48 and Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Face Powder, $35. The eyes looked dreamy and lips were a healthy pink with a bit of sheen."
Wedding hair: "This collection was all about romance and femininity but still had a very 'modern couture' feel to it," says Giuntoli. "To reflect that, we gave the models tailored, yet loose styles with a soft, textured overlay and a twist up the back -- anything sleek would have been too harsh," he says. "We used Redken Wool Shake 08 Gel Slush Texturizer, $17 to give a piece-y, matte effect."
Wedding makeup: "Because of the femininity of the collection, we wanted to keep this look girly, fresh and fun," says makeup artist Daniel Martin. We kept the skin glowing and dewy with Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation, $55 and finished the look with a popsicle-colored stained lip."
Designer: Kenneth Pool
Wedding hair: "This glamorous collection is definitely more for the bride who demands the spotlight, so high drama was the key inspiration for the hair," says Giuntoli. "We balanced the big gowns with the hair, using Redken's Velvet Gelatine 07 Cushioning Blow-Dry Gel, $17 to get the shiny-looking volume," he says.
Wedding makeup: "The Kenneth Pool bride is creative, daring and forward thinking," says makeup artist Daniel Martin. "And the dark plum lip we gave the models created understated drama without calling too much attention." They used Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Lipstick in Pink Red, $35 with a swipe of berry gloss on top.
Designer: Monique Lhuillier
Wedding hair: "This hairstyle was inspired by the idea of a modern princess," says Travis Speck, Editorial Stylist for Bumble and Bumble. "I wanted to create a look that was pretty, but not traditional, so we did a sculptured high ponytail wrapped with textural braids." The look was finished with Bumble and Bumble Does It All Styling Spray, $14 for hold and extra shine.
Wedding makeup: "The same 'young princess' vibe carried over to the makeup, too," says MAC Senior Artist Romero Jennings. "We gave the girls an elegant brow (try MAC Impeccable Brow Pencil in Taupe, $15) and pared it with a taupe-y metallic eyeshadow. The on-trend peach lip is also visible but was done in a sheer, easy, effortless way," he says.
Wedding hair: "We wanted to create a hairstyle that represented that breathless, almost magical moment, when you first see a bride walk down the aisle," says Cutler/Redken Hairstylist, Franco Della Grazia. "I wanted it to be dreamy and ethereal, almost hazy," he says. "I started with Cutler Volumizing Spray, $20.50 to add fullness and pulled the hair back, keeping it very soft and textural."
Wedding makeup: "We began this look with hydrated, glowing skin and added color for an editorial feel," says MAC Senior Artist, Keri Blair. "The overall look was sophisticated with a sculpted eye in a neutral palette and a bright lip. The cheekbones, decolletage and shoulders were highlighted with MAC Strobe Cream, $29.50, for a luminous, healthy sheen."
Designer: Douglas Hannant
Wedding hair: "The idea was to create something very untraditional but elegant for our 'ice princesses,'" says Edward Tricomi of the Warren Tricomi Salon. "We wanted the brides to look chic and contemporary," so "we gave the girls tightly pulled-back buns and low chignons, keeping the styles secure with L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray, $14.99," says Tricomi.
Wedding makeup: "We gave our 'brides' a completely untraditional look," says Christina Turino/Warren Tricomi Management. "To reflect the snowy setting of the runway, the 'brides' had luminous, pale skin, sparkle around the eyes to look like ice and a nude, glossy lip. We used body shimmer to get the glowing skin we wanted." (Try Urban Decay Sparkling Lickable Body Powder, $29.)
Designer: Kevan Hall
Wedding hair: "We were inspired by the red carpet for Hall's debut bridal collection," says Cutler/Redken Hairstylist, Jenny Balding. "We used Redken Spray Starch 15 Heat Memory Styler, $13, to get the volume we wanted, then twisted and pinned the hair into a soft chignon shape."
Wedding makeup: "Kevan Hall pulled inspiration from his 'Hollywood Celebrity Starlet' influences and told me that he wanted the total vision to be beautiful and youthful," says Jennings. "We did a very sculpted look, chiseling the cheekbones, temples and forehead and accenting the cheeks with highlighter. MAC #33 Lashes, $14 are slightly longer in the center, so we paired them with MAC Haute and Naughty Mascara to give the models a fresh, doll-like eye," he says.
Designer: Claire Pettibone
Wedding hair: "The main inspiration for this show was fairies," says celebrity hairstylist, Tippi Shorter. Texture was very important -- we wanted to create light, airy looks to represent the feel of the show. We used Ojon Volumizing Foam, $22 to create volume then added texture with the Smart Heat Crimping Iron, $69.95, and Smart Heat Triple Barrel Iron, $59.99.
Wedding makeup: "I did a deep, dark and dramatic green eye shadow (I used Smashbox Cosmetic's Eye Shadow Trio in Microfilm, $28), dewy skin, nude lips and bronzy cheeks," says makeup artist Janice Kinjo. "I chose the green eye shadow to mimic fairies running around in the forest." To keep this look wearable, skip the wacky green false lashes.
