Life unexpected

March 17, 2011

In light of the recent tragedies, I asked myself why am I working so hard? In the end of the day, everything can be gone in seconds without warning. This make me rethink about my priorities in life. I want to pause and enjoy life more but I want to build my career too. It is really hard to get a balance. But I do know, I have to keep my loved ones close to me.

Kate sent me this awhile ago. Unfortunately Eeyore was wrong. But I think everyone could learn some optimism from him.

And since life is so unexpected, maybe this is true.

LingYin + Daniel Actual Day

March 15, 2011

A strong pungent cookie smell greeted me at the door when I visited Lingyin for her hair trial. She was busy baking cookies for all her guests for her wedding. She actually roped in all her family members in Malaysia for this huge cookie making plan. That’s family spirit! 

It is a simple cosy affair for her at the ACM. She chose to have a classic hairdo to go with her clean cut flowy gown. The white flower she bought goes perfectly well with her jet black hair. For her makeup, we went for a minimalist look, just for a rosy blush. This is prefect for brides who are not used to makeup. Just a little to look ravishing.

Sara is all for some old Hollywood drama. Demure from the front and super high glamour from the side. Smokey eye makeup to up the glamorous factor. *Blows whistle*

Sara for her church ceremony. With her slightly tanned complexion, she looked ravishing in this rosy makeup. A string of pearls to complete her sweet classic look.

Joyce + Ken Actual Day

March 6, 2011

Joyce is another bride that I share the same taste for Korean bridal styles.  I really think Korean bridal hairstyles look so elegant but maybe it is because we watch too many Korean dramas 🙂

As Joyce knew exactly what she wanted so the rest of the time we spent perfecting the hairstyle and makeup. Luckily we did that coz silly me climbed a ladder to try to clean the roof , fell down from about 1 storey high and twisted my wrist on the morning of Joyce’s actual day. I was writhing in pain when I did her hair but it turned out beautiful.

In fact I was never happier. I love this whole look and it suited Joyce perfectly. Thank you Joyce for being such a dear. And many thanks to your mum-in-law being so hospitable too.

Best wishes!

A breathe of fresh air in the midst of conventional bridal hairstyles. A gorgeous hairpin to finish this low key elegant look.

Three Awesome Hair Accessories

February 23, 2011

I have learnt that my brides do not fancy tiaras very much, opting to have flowers in the hair for a more refreshing natural look. Even hairstyles are getting looser, more tousled to have a more airy causal feel.

As much as I love flowers, I love tiaras as well. Of course no more crowns or tiaras that scream Princess-wannabe. Just a little something for that extra bling on that special day.

I picked up 3 of my favorites that I have recently purchased in Taiwan for a sneak preview. It is too tiring to be taking pictures of every single hair accessory that I have so I decided to just showcase my favorites. These 3 are made of different material and each has its own beauty. Each brings out a different aura.

Crystal Flower band – This goes very well with a classic bridal hairdo. Highly popular with brides wearing clean-cut gowns. Crystals lend a touch of brilliancy to the entire look.

The Fairy Band – A touch of elegance in this dainty piece of dazzling rhinestone. It shines like a fairy wand, mesmerizing yet not overwhelming. This is my favorite and it burned a hole in my pocket.

The above band was pretty much inspired by Shu qi in a updo with a little tiara in her hair for the Golden Horse Awards in 2009. It is so elegant and timeless.

Last but not least, the Star Band – Made up of sparkling blings that many girls adored. What I like about this is that it is very simple yet attractive. Complete your look and be the Star of the Day!

I portray these accessories as how I think would be like if I was the bride. Everyone will look different in the it. Share your ideas with me during your hair trial so we can explore the possibilities together. This is also an example of what I meant when I asked what feel or style you are looking for. Sweet, elegant or stylish?

As usual, I like to highlight that I loan hair accessories for free but I do require a deposit of SGD 50 per accessory loaned and it will be returned when I receive the hair accessory in its original condition. Any damages or loss of accessory will result in a forfeit of the deposit and a full payment of the original cost of the hair accessory. I have to protect my prized possessions.

  • Note though  that this is not a showcase of my bridal works for makeup and hair. I can’t do my own hair. 🙂
