Check out some images from our latest bridal hair shoot. We ventured out to the equestrian center here in Huntington Beach to capture some boho chic wedding hair. Uniting forces with: ‘What A Betty’ accessories, makeup artist Marie Yeretzian (also from Meleea the Salon), and Stephanie James bridal gown designer and photographer, we spent a wednesday afternoon collaborating to show off some of the best bridal hair work here in Orange County.
Tara’s vision for this particular style was beach/Grecian inspired. We are SO proud to show you these photos. Look how effortlessly beautiful our bride looks in these stunning images…
1. Start by picking one of your favorite colors from the Kevin Murphy Color
2. Place a towel on your shoulders.
3. Subdivide the hair in smaller sections. Starting in the mid shaft, rub the
color bug on the hair.
4. Continue with all sections.
5. YES, fun dip die ponytail!
Oh, want to turn it into a fun bun?
Just wrap it around the ponytail and start to pin the hair with bobby pins.
This will create a TOP BUN that is nothing but unique! See the dimension
and take it to town.
It seems that everywhere I look, there is color. This summer, the hottest trend is those bright color hair pieces. Being by the beach in this lovely southern Californian beach town of Huntington Beach, I can’t get enough of this look. Call it Mermaid hair, hair chalk, koolaid ends or color extensions, the list goes on and on. Thanks to my lovely blonde client Venus – a self-professed addict to blogs and fashion – last fall she introduced to me this little pink pod that you rub on your hair to add pops of color without any commitment. WOW – what a great idea. For all those you know me, Meleesa, both as a stylist and founder of Meleesa the Salon, I love color and am constantly changing my hair. My clients, friends and strangers always love it, but most are to nervous to commit to such color, so I thought to myself ‘I must get a hold of this, it will bring so much freedom to all those who just want to have some color in their hair and then wash it off with just one shampoo!’ The search ended with Color Bug, which is available in Pink, Purple and Coral, a creation of Australian stylist Kevin Murphy. I finally got it in four months ago, and since then this trend has taken off, from various runways to wigs at Forever 21 in the windows of San Francisco to New York Fashion Week. The joy of color is everywhere; whether you are a stunning blonde or a chocolate brunette, it will capture your heart. Walk on the wild side, even if it is only for a night out – I promise people will stop and ask ‘how did you do your hair like that?!’
