With wedding season almost in full swing, we thought we’d share some quick and easy hairstyles that you can totally do on your own be it as a bride, bridesmaid, or wedding guest. We’ve summoned expert help from Xing of XING maQuillage who came up with three gorgeous styles — a half updo that can be turned into a side-swept updo, plus a 5-minute braid.
Hairstyle #1: Half Updo
Add volume to your hair by creating loose curls with a curling iron and then teasing the top portion of your hair.
Tie your hair into a pony tail and then split the part above the hair tie in the middle.
Carefully tuck the pony tail into the split and gently pull all the way down.
Secure the top half with a few hair pins. Take a small bunch of your pony tail and wrap it around the hair tie to hide it.
Secure with a hair pin and finish with some hair spray.
I have a confession to make: I am a big sucker for beautiful wedding gowns. There is just something quite magical when the bride puts it on, and what a treat is it for me to swoon over Ben and Christy’s Hong Kong wedding! If these two look familiar, it’s because we gushed over their garden wedding in Vancouver a few weeks back. Just like their overseas celebration, the dashing couple was absolutely radiant on their special day with family and friends in Hong Kong. Christy was pure and utter perfection in that to-die-for embellished Marchesa wedding dress, and her bridesmaids were visions of beauty in their exquisite ensembles. I could go on and on about how pretty this affair really is, but I suggest you take a good look at these photos taken by Edmon Leong instead! Enjoy!
Who ever said that you need a long flowy dress, a big bouquet of flowers, and a sharp suit to make an engagement session work? Today’s featured couple, Matthew and Esther, proves to us that there are no rules to break when you stay true to your personal style. This confident pair’s minimal outfits are a breath of fresh air from the overly-romantic styles that have become the norm. And let’s be honest, with a serene and breathtaking backdrop like Shing Mun Reservoir, you really don’t need much more. Well, that plus a talented photographer like Jan Leung of Feel in the Blank who can do everything justice, then you’re definitely set.
Marchesa is what defines a modern-day princess for me. They never fail to impress with their ultra-sophisticated and feminine designs. There’s no doubt that they are one of the most influential labels in the wedding industry, and we can totally see why with their latest bridal collection. It’s got everything we could ever ask for — intricate embellishments, flowing fabrics, flattering silhouettes, and a generous sprinkling of pure magic.
Marchesa is available in Hong Kong through Central Weddings.
