Inspirational Bridal Runway
by Julie Hill, Hairstylist for Imagine Three

Hair trends are constantly shifting; traveling to the past but always pushing forward to a future dream. Once again I am excited to see this season headed in a upward motion with classic up-dos, yet keeping it playful with some fun new styles.

The ponytail: Don’t mistake it just as an easy way to wear your hair or for working out. It’s sassy, fun and can be paired with any dress to make your look for an event stunning. There’s the structured strong pony with fullness, or the curly pony for a little sassy flair. For those of you who don’t want a sleek or tight ponytail, leave texture and looseness for a more relaxed, look. It’s a fun appearance that will stay without fail the whole night. It can also be your second look after a wedding ceremony for the reception.

Classic will never grow old. The french twist and the bun are always fashionable in my book. They can be changed for every person depending on their face structure. Add a swept bang to the front for softness or take it away from the face and sweep it straight back to give drama. Give blunt bangs to change the whole look altogether with a new focus.

The down style is never forgotten. Soft waves that replicate those from the 1940‘s is a look that has grown in popularity on the red carpet. Big curls that are full of bounce and movement are romantic and classic. Both of these looks can be pulled back loosely to create a space for a hair adornment or veil.
