Melissa's H&M Trial!

Who: Melissa
What: Wedding Hair & Makeup Trial
Where: San Jose Home Studio

It was such a pleasure meeting Melissa and her mom the other day for Melissa's trial. It's truly incredible what a small world we live in and finding out we have mutual friends! Melissa already had a makeup look in mind so we didn't have to discuss that too much. We spent a little more time talking about what type of hairstyle she'd like for her special day. Here's the complete look we came up with!

Melissa wasn't sure if she wanted to do a half up/half down look, or have all of her hair in and updo. After looking at pictures of the shape and detailing on her wedding gown, I suggested going all up. Before pinning all her hair up though, I pulled Melissa's curled hair into a quick half up/half down look so she could get an idea of what it might look like. The decision is ultimately the bride's! It's good to get a snapshot of the different options though :)

Thanks for coming in Melissa! The story of how you and Alex met is so cute! One that I'm sure is always fun to tell :) Looking forward to working with you on your wedding day!

Mother and Daughter are both dog lovers! Cody had fun with you ladies.
