Beauty Tips for the Mother of the Bride and Groom
As the mother of the bride or groom, you want to look beautiful as you walk down the aisle with your son or daughter. Azazie can help you create the look that works best for you.
Here are a few great beauty tips from Cherise Gowan-Hughes that will make you absolutely stunning!
Azazie Hadid, Cabernet
Azazie Hadid presents a modern look while taking inspiration from vintage styles. This dress masterfully highlights your curves and lengthens your figure.
Apply Kevin Murphy bedroom hair on dry hair before curling. Curl whole head with a one inch curling iron, starting in the back. Alternate between curling quarter inch and half inch sections. On the sides, make sure to curl everything in the same direction, going back towards the face. When you’ve completed curling the whole head, brush out with your fingers and finish with Kevin Murphy session spray.
Azazie Barrymore, Grape
For moms who want to look fashionable yet modest, this dress is the one for you. With three-quarter lace sleeves and gentle draping across the bodice, Barrymore is a flattering style for a wide range of body types.
Follow these four easy steps to get this loosely elegant up-do!
Step 1: After curling with a curling iron, separate the hair in three sections, one on each side and one in the back. Use a hairband to wrap the back third into a low ponytail.
Step 2: Taking small portions of hair at a time, bobby pin the pieces from the back third around the ponytail to form a bun.
Step 3: Twist the side pieces back to accentuate the texture of the curls, and pin them into the bun. Leave a few loose pieces in the front to shape the face.
Step 4: Add bobby pins to secure the bun in place. Finish off with a touch of hairspray.
