Sarah and Roger from Texas, currently living in France, wanted to get married in Barcelona. Thanks to the Internet, the couple found my wedding hair & make-up services and when they had decided to celebrate their wedding outside of Barcelona in July, we met up for a trial.
Highlights at the trial
Sarah, the bride to be, wanted to be blonder for her wedding day, so at the trial I suggested a full head of natural blond highlights. The result was a success! It looked very nice seeing the different colours in her hair when trying out the wedding hair do.
¨Catrin was amazing. I gave her an idea of the romantic side-swept hair do that I wanted and she completely went above my expectations. She put in some gorgeous blonde highlights before we began styling and then incorporated the hair’s highlights into the details of the hairdo. The result was amazing. After the hair and makeup testing I felt so confident that she would take care of me on the wedding day.”
Wedding hairstyle – naturally elegant
Sarah had sent me photos of her wedding dress beforehand so I could think about suggestions for her wedding make-up and hair do to go with the style. The wedding dress was beautiful and very romantic and Sarah’s wish was to have her hair romantic looking but messy and with curls swept to one side. For the wedding make-up we decided to go with an elegant but natural look with fake eyelashes.
60’s hairstyle for the cousin
The aunt and the cousin let me decide on their hairstyles. As her aunt always wears her hair straight I thought it would look nice with loose natural curls. For the cousin I chose a retro 60’s up style because I thought it would suit her style.
“ Not only did she do my hair and makeup but she also styled the hair of my aunt and cousin who were not sure what to do with theirs. They looked amazing! Catrin stayed with me until I left for the church to make sure everything stayed perfect. Everything stayed in place through the rain and wind we had that day and through the dancing, kissing, hugging and tears that night” says Sarah.”
