Fairy Tale Weddings: Soft Texture

Lauren Salapatek | June 8, 2012 | 9:03 AM

Texture takes center stage this bridal season. According to Marek Hartwig, owner and bridal stylist at Marek Bridal in Chicago, and Artistic Director at Frank Gironda Salon & Day Spa in Wheaton, Illinois, this bridal season can be broken down into three categories:


Modern Classic: The days of the severe, slicked bun are gone, and soft, moldable textures are here to stay. Hair should be constructed well, but be airy and have movement.
Vintage-Inspired: Fingerwaves are a fitting homage to the Golden Era of Hollywood and very romantic. In order to evoke this in 2012, let the waves transcend into a more relaxed texture, keeping it fresh and not too costume. Using a heavier, stoned headband balances the look to portray a true vintage bride.
High-Fashion: It’s all about shape. This season, a strong geometric shape is softened with rough textures; micro crimping is a great avenue to marry editorial with bridal. While high-fashion, this stylish bride stills seeks elegance.
