Bridal Inspiration: Oscars 2017 Red Carpet Hair & Makeup
Classic Hollywood glamour still stands the test of time – this is one look that will never go out of fashion, both on the red carpet and walking down the aisle.
Emma Roberts demonstrated how to wear this elegant (yet supremely sexy and sassy!) look at this year’s Oscars, with that incredible hair colour that is set to be one of the hottest trends for this summer, for true Jessica Rabbit style.
An easy to wear style that would work beautifully with all sorts of bridal gowns, but if you’re going for that peachy rose gold colour, it is so important that you get the right makeup to match.
Emma’s red lipstick and subtly gilded eye-shadow looks totally fabulous, but if the shades were slightly off, this could have been a clashing disaster!
This is where hiring a professional hair and makeup artist for your big day becomes essential.
Embrace your natural beauty! When it comes to looking absolutely gorgeous for your wedding day, the best thing you can do is to work with the natural shape and style of your hair, rather than fighting against it.
So many brides-to-be with big, beautiful curls are in such a hurry to reach for the straighteners, but as Halle Berry showed on The Oscars red carpet, natural (or an amped up version of it) is totally fab!
If you’re a curly haired bride, count yourself lucky and try out some styles that really shows off those locks. Think perfect, smooth spirals without a hint of frizz and masses of volume!
If you love the idea of going for a look like this one, there’s no need to go overboard with makeup as the hair is without a doubt going to be centre of attention! Halle’s light smoky eye is the ideal addition and one of the top bridal makeup looks for 2017.
Give your curls an extra dimension by getting some multi-tonal highlights added in ahead of the big day.
Many brides go on a mission to grow their hair as long as possible before their wedding day to achieve that dream style, but as Scarlett Johnasson proved at The Oscars, short hair is equally awesome!
Scarlett’s short crop is a surprisingly versatile cut and with a gentle curl and some added oomph at the roots, she’s gone from androgynous to distinctly feminine. This volume lift works particularly well with the visible root trend that we’re now seeing so much of.
The choice of shimmering gold eye-shadow and pink rose lipstick is all you need to create a fresh but undeniably glamorous overall look.
Sofia Carson has leant firmly away from a natural, relaxed look and instead, gone for a beautifully structured, sleek fishtail bun with flawless makeup. This is a wonderful look for more traditional brides opting for a really decadent wedding dress and venue.
The key to winning at a look like this is perfection is all areas – not a hair can afford to be out of place! High gloss and a perfectly straight parting is a must, as are meticulously groomed brows and well defined lips.
Sofia has chosen a stunning hair accessory to adorn this chic style, which would certainly work a treat for brides too. Top the whole thing off with a tumbling, cathedral veil flowing out of the bottom of the bun.
