From the wedding dress to the first dance, the wedding industry has been known to be one of the most traditional industries. That is until recently. Ten years ago, brides were pulling on their princess gowns and pinning their hair up into neatly coiffed french twists. But regardless of what’s been done in the past, today\’s urban bride is blazing her own trail. She’s breaking loose from tradition, and crafting her big day to be just as she would like it.
More likely than not, she’s also a millennial. And millennials, are changing the bridal game. They are crafty and creative, looking for inspiration not only in their daily life, but online as well. These urban brides are walking down the isle looking Pinterest-worthy.
As a bridal hair specialist, I treasure the fact, that I get to be apart of creating a piece of each bride’s vision. From the moment she sit’s in my chair, it’s all about getting a feel for her personality, her vibe, her style… How can I create a look that’s true to who she is.
Through my 15 years, as a bridal beauty specialist, I’ve had the honor of witnessing an array of New York City bridal styles. Each one unique in their own way. More than ever, I’m seeing brides break away the typical bridal stereotypes. Many brides are choosing simplicity, and opting for a beachy blowout; while others are donning fantasy colored mermaid braids.
In the end, any celebration of love, where you gather all your favorite people, is bound to be a beautiful day…
