When friends get married...
Soon to be bride.
There is something really special in doing hair for a bride. At a recent class I got to teach at work on updos, I mentioned that it's either a great memory or a 'horrid updo gone bad' memory. Hopefully, it's a great memory! We as artists, get to create on a canvas that is someone's hair!
It's in their memories, in their photographs, always etched into the rest of their lifetime. I think that is awesome. Woman talk about what their dress, what their hair looked like, for years after the wedding! And to be able to be part of someone's life like that is so cool. To be trusted to do something so important for a bride. For many girls, weddings are 'it'. It's the big thing of a lifetime. And I get to be part of it so many times when I do their hair the day of the 'big' day, the wedding!
At work today, I did a bridal updo. The season has begun! What I love is to hear how the couple met, 'how and what' of their story. Everybody loves a good love story. I get to ask and hear about them all the time...
I am privileged to be doing my friend's hair for her wedding pretty soon. I watched my friend 'grow' up and go through different seasons of her life, and now, she's stepping into a life as a soon to be married woman. Into a life of being someone's wife. I'm looking forward to her wedding. And doing her hair.
