7 Tips on How to Choose the Right Hairstyle for You

20 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Hair

If you’re looking for something to change up your normal look, a new haircut can do the trick. There are countless beautiful, modern haircuts to choose from, which can make picking a haircut an intimidating task. However, a haircut you see on a model in a magazine or even on your next-door neighbor that looks adorable on them might not look the same on you.

Not every haircut flatters everyone, and it’s important to consider which haircut will complement you. If you’re not sure how to do this, read on to learn everything you need to know aboutchoosing the right haircut for you.

1. Consider Your Face Shape

7 Tips for Choosing the Right Haircut For You

via

Your face shape is arguably the most important characteristic that can make or break how a haircut looks on you.

If you have an oval face, you can rock almost any haircut but should choose one that includes volume for best results. If you have a round face, stay away from haircuts that are extremely short, as these can make your face appear chubby and accentuate its roundness. If you have a square face, add some layers into your cut to prevent your face from looking unattractively boxy. If you have a face with a large forehead, try a haircut with bangs to add balance and harmony to your face and prevent your forehead from stealing the show.

2. Keep Your Hair In Mind

7 Tips for Choosing the Right Haircut For You

via

Just as not every haircut works for every face shape, the same rule applies for hair textures and thickness. If you have thick, wavy hair, a pixie cut on you isn’t going to look the same as it does on a magazine model with silky, fine tresses no matter how much you attack it with a flat iron.

Your hair is unique and should be celebrated and enhanced by your haircut. Talk to your stylist about how best to complement your hair with a haircut. Also, your hair doesn’t have to  be exactly the same as someone else with the same haircut to look good. It’s just important to keep in mind that cutting your hair doesn’t change its natural texture and thickness.

3. How Much Effort Do You Want to Put In?

7 Tips for Choosing the Right Haircut For You

instagram

This question is an extremely important one to ask yourself before you take the plunge and go for a new haircut, especially one that is drastically different from the one you have.

If you want a long pixie cut with angled bangs, ask yourself if you’re really willing to put in fifteen minutes of work with a flat iron before your early morning shift. If you’re considering a chin-length bob, ask yourself if you’re going to be able to survive without the option of a ponytail on your daily runs. A certain haircut might look cute, but it’s important to consider whether you’ll really be willing to deal with the styling and maintenance it entails before it’s too late to change your mind.

4. Progress Gradually

7 Tips for Choosing the Right Haircut For You

via

If you want to try a super-short haircut but you’re intimidated by everything it entails, there’s no reason to shear off all your hair at once.

Progress gradually and try a cut that’s a bit shorter every time you visit your hairdresser. This gradual progression can help you ease yourself into shorter hair as well as see how many different haircuts look on you so you can determine which one you like best.

5. Think About Your Favorite Features

7 Tips for Choosing the Right Haircut For You

Certain haircuts can highlight, accentuate, and enhance your favorite facial features to make them stand out more and help you show them off to the world.

For example, to make your eyes stand out, consider a haircut that includes bangs that skim the tops of your eyebrows to draw more attention to your eyes.

6. …And Your Least Favorite Features

7 Tips for Choosing the Right Haircut For You

Everyone has facial features that they don’t like about themselves. The right haircut for you can mask the appearance of these features.

For example, you can opt for a longer cut with more volume if you don’t like the look of your ears. You can also try a cut with intense layers to cover up the shape of your neck if you’re unhappy with it. While you should never try to hide behind your hair, a great haircut for you can help downplay and distract from features you don’t love.

7. Experiment With Your Hair

7 Tips for Choosing the Right Haircut For You

Before you get your hair cut, spend some time with your present haircut and experiment with it.

Get to know how your part naturally falls and experiment with different ways to style your hair. If you’re considering a shorter cut, you can also fold up your hair and pin and clip it to see how a short haircut would look with your face shape and hair texture. Experimenting with your hair to get to know it better can help you choose a haircut that works well for you.

There’s a lot of different things to consider when it comes to choosing a hairstyle that’s right for you. However, using the tips in this post to do some serious thinking about choosing the right haircut for you before you get a new cut can help increase your satisfaction with your haircut in the long run.

2017 Wedding Dress Trends: The Top 20 To Fall For

17 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Dresses

While it might seem like a lifetime away, wedding planning for 2017 is in full swing for couples everywhere, with cake tastings, gift registries, and color schemes on the brain. But for brides, one element takes precedence above all else: the dress.

Lucky for all you brides-to-be out there, we’ve sorted through the mountains of fluffy tulle and endless piles of flowing veils to find the hottest 2017 Wedding Dress trends that are poised to take off in the coming year.

Our top takeaways? Skin is in, pants are the new gowns, and immaculate white dresses are soooo passé.

Fresh off the bridal week runways, we present the top 20 Wedding Dress trends for 2017!

allure-9366

2017 Wedding Dress Trends:

1. Colorful Couture:

It’s a nice day for a… pink wedding? Classic ivory and cream have officially taken a backseat to Insta-worthy shades of fuchsia, violet, and mint, which have all officially made their bridal gown debut.

But the most popular picks by far are Serenity and Rose Quartz, the current Pantone Colors of the Year. Be your own “something blue” in the former, a calming sky blue hue, or embrace your inner blushing bride in the latter, an ultra-feminine pale pink.

allure-2950 sottero-midgley-kira-1

2. Plunging Necklines: 

Weddings are about to get a whole lot sexier in 2017, with a flood of deep – and we mean deep – V-necklines. The styles run the gamut from the comparatively demure, with sheer panels providing a moderate amount of coverage, to down-to-there, practically navel-grazing cuts.

Let’s just say that with the abundance of cleavage-baring styles that’s coming down the pike, the fashion tape industry had better be prepared.

calla-blanche-lydia-1 calla-blanche-bella

3. Cutouts Galore: 

In the same vein, strategically placed cutouts are popping up left and right, exposing skin like it’s never been exposed before. That’s not to say these details are salacious – they’re far from sending grandma running for the hills, made tasteful and not tacky.

Subtly sexy side gaps and slight midriff-baring slits are the name of the game with the new wave of skin-baring silhouettes.

calla-blanche-paulette-1 sottero-midgley-nicole

4. Off-the-Shoulder Styles:

Brides everywhere will be giving the cold shoulder in this ubiquitous ready-to-wear trend, which has officially infiltrated the world of bridal dressing. There are no rules here; designers aren’t sticking to one look, but rather, experimenting with various shoulder-baring cuts, from the structured straight-across neckline to artfully draped curtains of fabric dipping gently over the limbs.

kittychen-couture-caterina blu-by-mori-lee-5477-1

5. Peek-a-Boo Panels:

Another top 2017 Wedding Dress trend are these bits of sheer illusion fabric covering racy cutouts, blanketing bodices, or cloaking the bride head to toe, with just enough coverage to narrowly avoid indecent exposure.

(Think Beyoncé’s 2015 Met Gala stunner, a barely-there Givenchy number with strategically placed beaded embroidery… and not much else.)

calla-blanche-trinity calla-blanche-carrie

6. Menswear Elements:

Bridal couture is no longer relegated to the one-note gown, with brides stealing from the boys in the coming season. While we’ve seen menswear-inspired elements in bridal couture before, 2017 will bring tailored pieces with structure and clean lines, like a one-piece fitted jumpsuit with sheer overskirt, a pantsuit with ruffled peplum detail for a bit of girly flair, and a pair of wide-leg trousers with a curve-hugging tunic top.

david-tutera-leora enchanting-by-mon-cheri-215103

7. Elegant Toppers:

Who says capes are just for superheroes? Brides everywhere will be copping Wonder Woman’s style with elegantly appointed capelets and other unique toppers, including boleros, ponchos and even bomber jackets.

These demure coverings are the perfect way to take the season’s overtly sexy styles from the vows to the reception, with the two-in-one designs allowing the bride to easily transition from conservative to come-hither.

wtoo-ellie-cape-1 sottero-midgley-ireland

8. Detachable Skirts: 

While we’re on the topic of two looks in one, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the detachable overskirt. Whether you’re seeking a style that allows for a quick costume change post-vows, or you’re looking to shed the weight of a hefty layered skirt or lengthy train to kick up your heels on the dance floor, you’re bound to find the right option for you amidst the flood of choices this season.

calla-blanche-gloria-2 maggie-sottero-mirelle

9. 3-D Florals:

Ok, so three-dimensional floral details aren’t exactly new to the bridal market, but they’re one of the 2017 Wedding Dress trends picking up steam. With this next wave, the pretty petals will be appearing in fresh, unexpected ways – think curvaceous appliqués woven through stark geometric patterns, eye-popping buds peeking out from beneath the tiers of a skirt, and a garden of blooms dancing across the edge of an off-the-shoulder bodice.

willowby-by-watters-elodie david-tutera-leia-1

10. Larger-Than-Life Bows:

To be clear, these aren’t your everyday cutesy bows. Far from understated, these over-the-top loops are high drama, drawing the gaze and holding it firmly in its grasp.

With the forthcoming styles, we’ll see the enormous accents gracing backs, adorning waistlines, accenting trains and securing the neckline from behind.

11. Victorian Collars:

On the opposite end of the skin-baring spectrum, Victorian collars have taken hold. The prim and proper necklines reach high, ringing the neck in a conservative swath of fabric.

Opt for intricately embroidered lace for a regal look that hearkens back to Queen Victoria herself, or choose structured satin for a modern take on the trend.

12. Long Sleeves:

In the oft-replicated style of Duchess Kate, conservative long sleeves are gaining serious traction. With the new guard, we’re seeing these coverings mainly on slim sheath styles for a body-hugging head-to-toe design.

tara-keely-tk2653 maggie-sottero-mavis-1

13. Slip Dresses:

Once again, mainstream fashion has trickled down to the bridal market in no time flat. The über-popular boudoir-inspired slip dress is transformed into a slinky bridal style, with silky, touchable fabrics, delicate spaghetti straps, lacy accents and flowing, effortless layers.

tara-keely-tk2651-1

14. Flirty Feathers:

It’s official – birds of a feather have flocked to, well, next year’s bridal couture. Otherwise traditional styles will be accented with wispy plumes for a serious dose of texture and a weightless, airy feel. Gowns will boast anywhere from a smattering of soft quills to a blanket of flirtatious feathers for a strikingly bold silhouette.

15. Stunning Silver:

Once again bucking tradition, white dresses will give way to heavy metals in the coming year. These brand-new sparkling bridal creations include oversized sequin paillettes, heavily beaded embroidery, and silvery fringe. Buh-bye, basic!

16. Rising Hemlines:

Forget the cumbersome floor-length frocks – the new surge of bridal fashion features higher hemlines that let the bride show a little leg. Kick up your heels in a high-low design, reminiscent of Whitney Port’s custom creation with waterfall hem, or opt for a thigh-grazing layer that peeks out from beneath a frothy tulle overlay, à la fashion queen Olivia Palermo.

17. Dramatic Veils:

Gone are the days of basic, boring headpieces. Instead, they’ve been replaced by stunning embellished veils, accented with intricate embroidery, delicate lace, beautifully textured beadwork, and even sparkling crystals.

Get creative and personalize the style with your own design like Angela Jolie, who famously adorned hers with her kids’ whimsical works of art.

18. Boho Trimmings:

While bohemian bridal gowns have been a mainstay in recent seasons, we’re seeing a profusion of hippie-infused styles in the year to come. Think floral-embroidered lace and open-weave crochet with Coachella-inspired accents like flowing bell sleeves, blouson bodices and ethereal streamer sleeves – flower crowns not included.

19. High Halters: 

The sporty beach babe style is back in action, thanks to its ability to help the bride cover up without covering it all. The incoming wave halter gowns feature demure shapes, delicate straps and soft, elegant fabrics for an ultra-feminine touch.

20. Tiered Skirts: 

If you’re the type of bride that’s into high-drama designs but flashing a ton of flesh isn’t for you, then you’re in luck. Tucked quietly between the racy styles this past bridal week were relatively conservative silhouettes with voluminous, multi-layered and ruffled skirts for statement-making dimension and theatrical movement.

Hello lovelies, are you all ready for your weekend? I have a rare personal post coming up today, but first, it’s time to look at another awesome Bridesmaid dress trend and this is one I’ve been looking forward to highlighting for a while. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE The Great Gatsby. Ever since I read it, I’ve been a little bit obsessed with the roaring ’20s. I’m also a little bit obsessed with Baz Luhrmann – Strictly Ballroom is my ALL TIME favourite film, with Romeo + Juliet coming a close second (although, let’s not talk about Moulin Rouge or Australia, kay?). So as you can imagine, I am dying to see the film. And the timing is perfect, because fashion and wedding world have been jonesing for this for ages – 1920s keeps being a trend, and it keeps getting better, especially with all the gorgeous embellished dresses around at the moment. Seriously, could someone doing this please make me their Bridesmaid? Because I so want an excuse to wear one of these beauties. Full disclosure: it’s not the most budget-friendly look, but it is mismatched (or even matched), glam, perfection. You don’t need to be having a vintage or Gatsby-themed wedding to pull it off either, but it will add a gorgeous touch of dapper flapper to your wedding style. Click on any of the dress images below to shop. For the most recent Gabtsby, Art Deco & 1920s BM dress finds, check in with our Bridesmaid Boutique Pinterest Board.

8 Tips For Finding the Perfect Wedding Dress

17 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Wedding Dresses

One of my favorite engaged moments was dress shopping without a doubt. But oh, what an adventure it is as you dive into the racks of gorgeous gowns! We’re in luck m’dears, for Lovely Bride SF is here to share their tips for finding that special dress. Josh Gruetzmacher snapped chic styles at their San Fran shop and with One True Love Vintage Rentals, the whole place is a dream. Gather up their advice and soak up all the pretty right this way!

Shop Early Enough

Typically, it can take between 7-9 months from when a bride orders her dress until it’s ready to walk down the aisle! While many of our designers can rush a dress order, it does add extra costs to the dress. With 7-9 months, you have a really comfortable timeline, and can eliminate any stress (and extra fees) in making sure your dress is ready and in perfect condition for the big day.

Set Your Budget

Before hitting the stores, it’s best to set a budget and know what you’re able to spend on your dress. While at your appointment, be upfront and clear with your stylist what your budget is. The stylist can then show you dresses that fall within your budget, that way you don’t fall in love with a dress that you can’t afford. We would hate for a bride to find her dream dress, then become disappointed that it’s out of her budget. Don’t forget the additional costs on top of the dress itself, such as alterations, accessories like veils and jewelry, as well as shoes and undergarments. These additions alone can cost an extra few hundred dollars, which many brides don’t initially think about.

Come Prepared

While shopping, come prepared! Bring the undergarments you’ll be wearing, or at the very least, wear a nude strapless bra and nude underwear (no hot-pink undies, please!). Have a Pinterest board ready to show the stylist; we love to see your inspiration! Come with some makeup on. While you don’t have to have a full face of makeup, having some makeup on can help you envision the entire look.

Shop with a Small Entourage

We always encourage a bride to come in with only her closest and most trustworthy confidants! In fact, our largest salon only accommodates four guests. When there are too many people in the party, the appointment can lose focus, and too many opinions can get in the way of what you, the bride, really feels. We advise brides to bring those who knows her style the best, and will be supportive of her opinions and choice!

Be Open-Minded

We love brides who come in with a vision of their big day, and have an idea of what styles they like. But we also love when brides come in open-minded about styles they might not necessarily see themselves in! You may surprise yourself and find a silhouette or style you did not originally consider to be the most flattering on you. And often times, trying on different styles can also help confirm a style you do NOT like, which is all part of the process!

Trust Your Stylist

On the same note, don’t be close-minded to your stylist’s suggestions. Even if you don’t initially love it on the hanger, you may end up falling in love with it! Our stylists dress multiple brides a day, and have seen our dresses on multiple bodies and body types, and have a good idea of what can be flattering on a bride.




Go During Off-Peak Hours

The weekends are our busiest days, and we’re often running from one bride to another. On the other hand, weekdays are quieter, and we are able to spend more quality time with the brides. If you can come on a weekday, you’ll be able to get more personal attention from the stylist.

Trust Your Instincts

Lastly, always trust your instincts! Ask yourself, can you see yourself walking down the aisle in the dress? If you have to be convinced to love a dress, that dress probably isn’t for you. You know best what feels right for you – no matter what anyone else thinks. After all, it’s your wedding, and it will be YOU wearing the dress!
