Flower Girl Hair (10 & Under) in Charleston, SC

Next to the bride, the flower girl is the minor star of the wedding-day show. She’s the supporting cast to the bride’s big walk down the aisle, preparing the guests for the stunning beauty of the bride with the charm of an innocent. You’ll want your flower girl’s style to match your bridesmaids’ and the overall theme of your wedding. Dealing with children during a formal service which requires expected behaviors can be challenging, but with some flexibility and understanding of the child’s personality, needs, and comfort, she can bring memorable moments to your wedding day. Your best bet? Consult the child’s parents in matters of comfort, and keep those suggestions in mind when choosing a hairstyle for your flower girl.

Updos

The classic updo is a splendid choice for a child’s fine hair. A smooth top knot, messy bun, braided bun, or twist, the possibilities are nearly endless. Children’s hair tends to be finer and lighter than adults’ hair, so take into consideration the volume of the child’s hair and the shape of the face when choosing the right updo. Ideally, the hair should frame the cherubic face, and the design of the updo should provide a nice contrast of texture and smoothness. Adding flowers, a headband, tiara, or other accessory is a nice foil for smooth, straight hair.

Natural Beauty

You may choose a more casual style for your flower girl, especially if the child is sensitive. Tight updos may be uncomfortable for some children. If she’s uncomfortable, it’s less likely that you can expect your flower girl to carry out her duties smoothly and with a smile. Casual styles may include a half-braid which stops half-way down and blends into the rest of the hair, or twists that bring the top and front of the hair back and away from the face. Half-updo styles allow for creativity and adding texture to the style without the need for tight fastenings that might make the child uncomfortable. Lashes and Lace salon staff has extensive experience in creating beautiful, comfortable styles for children. Make your appointment today.

Bridal Hair Trends This Season- Charleston, SC

 Knowing what hairstyle to choose for your wedding can be a daunting task. You’ll want something that fits your style, but isn’t too hard to maintain throughout the day. It has to go with your dress and wedding scheme, but also be cute, elegant, and timeless all in one. For the brides who have yet to figure out what they want to do with their hair for their wedding day, here are the current bridal hair trends for this season. 

 

Hairpieces

As we see more brides depart from tradition, one of the first things to go is the veil. This classic piece is often replaced with hairpieces, such as small tiaras, brocade, or even jewelry. This is a great opportunity to incorporate something significant to you.

Look for a meaningful headpiece, like a family heirloom. An accessory like this often feels classic while still offering a way to update standard wedding traditions.

 

Ponytails

Many brides opt for a ponytail — either low or slicked back — to help them keep their hair out of their way during what can be a long, tiring day. If a ponytail feels too casual, try updating it with the addition of braids, flowers, or accessories. To complete the look, try taking a strand of hair from the ponytail and wrapping around the hair tie to conceal it — it's an easy tip, but one that will instantly elevate your look. 

 

Loose Waves

Loose waves have been taking over the hair scene over the past few years and officially transitioned into one of the hottest wedding styles. By combing through curls or using a wand, you can give classic curls a modern refresh.

 

Braids

Braids are a catch-all style that works for virtually every type of wedding. For a casual beach wedding, go with something loose and wispy, while fishtail braids are well-suited for a bohemian wedding and braided up-dos work well for more formal events.

 

Flowers

Many modern brides skip the veil — or accentuate it — by placing flowers in their hair, often tucked into an existing style. Flowers can be weaved into braids, worked into up-dos, bobby-pinned into curls, and even work with the wedding colors or themes to coordinate with the bouquet.

 

Asymmetry

An asymmetrical style — the new-school version of the half-up-half-down classic — can come in many different forms, and works with the hair being left down or put up. Side-swept waves give a nod to old Hollywood glamour, while an off-centered up-do maintains the ideal balance between modern style and classic beauty.
