Hair and makeup inspiration from the Golden Globes 2020

2 days ago another Golden Globe event was held, and as usually I was watching it especially to get lots of hair and makeup inspiration. So what could we see? I would describe the hairstyles as relaxed, natural, elegant, feminine, not overdone, there were also many short hairstyles. The makeup had a lot of glitter involved with focus on the eyes, a few red lips were spotted, and the complexions were held natural and clean. Here are a few of my favourite looks.

Hair flowers, a big wedding trend for 2016!

Flowers and weddings go hand in hand and this year 2016, the flowers are even more in focus and many brides are asking for hair flowers to go with their bridal hairstyle. I have always thought that incorporating flowers in the hairstyle looks really pretty. They can help give the style a lift and and add an air of romance.

To help you to know what to consider when choosing flowers for your bridal hairstyle, I thought I’ll ask the very talented florist Viktoria Falen who is a partner at Melody Flowers in Stockholm.

Are you seeing an increase in brides who would like to have flowers in their hair for their wedding?

Yes, absolutely! More and more brides are asking for flowers in their hair as an extra detail and to complete the look at the wedding. I think we find inspiration from other countries where flowers in the hair is more usual than unusual. Its a trend we see on social media and different wedding magazines and we love it!

Can the flower be made to fit in the hairstyle?

Of course! We look at the hairstyle and consult with the hairstylist about what will look best , taking into consideration style, colour, make-up and hair type. I work with the look as a whole and will adjust the flowers there after. The flowers should both suit you individually and add an extra detail to the bridal look.

Which flowers would you recommend / don’t recommend to wear in your hair for a wedding?

Practically all flowers can be used depending on your style and the rest of the look. What is most important to me is a personal style that is connected all through the wedding. It could be a colour or a specific flower. If you want small flowers I recommend Miniature roses, Baby’s breath or peonies. To make them last throughout the day a nice idea could be to make flower jewellery such as a tiara, a crown or perhaps a hair comb. We can make the flowers to fit your style.

 

Why do you think a bride should choose real flowers in their hair instead of fake flowers?

Today we are aiming for a look that reflects that extra something, we want to stand out and at the same time be fashionable. The feeling we want right now is a summer field of blooming flowers. Its natural and beautiful and gives that special detail many are looking for. I think real flowers gives a more natural and alive impression, where fake flowers don’t give the same feeling or impression.
