Hi BeYOUtiful Friends!

Today we're talking TIPS for our Bride 2 Be's... and Wedding Hair!

When you are a BeYOUtiful Bride, we LOVE seeing pictures of looks of inspiration that YOU LOVE and want to achieve!

Sometimes Brides pick and choose photos for "Wedding day looks" that may not work with your CURRENT Haircut.

We see this A LOT at our Trial Run Thru services...  

Brides may want THIS >
BUT~ Their current Haircut is THIS>

1.)  YOU MAY NEED A New Haircut to achieve what you are wanting for your Wedding Day!

Keep this in mind, and be *open to changing* your haircut to achieve your dream wedding hairstyle.

Haircut AND Hair-color are also SO IMPORTANT and very much play a HUGE factor in your styling.

If you've fallen in love with something like THIS>

But your hair currently looks like this >

MOST photographers back us in saying this 100%...*COLOR CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING!*

2.)We may recommend HAIR COLOR changes! 
Brides are LOVING "textured and toussled" looks.  Its harder to achieve thru pictures when the hair is one solid color. Adding highlights, or lowlights can help you achieve the textured styles!

If you've fallen in LOVE with a specific "look" or style with your hair...consult your favorite HAIR stylist!
Your stylist should take into consideration... YOUR face shape, AND skin tones when choosing YOUR new look!

4.) DON'T GO CHEAP with your Hair services for your Wedding DAY!  
There are hundreds of salons and stylists in every city.  BUT- You don't have time for "hair mess-ups" before your BiG DAY!  If you have a friend who's hair you've ALWAYS loved...ask who her Hairstylist is!  If there is a friend on social media who's hair you LOVE...reach out and ask who does their hair!  You really want to stick with your trusted stylist!!! OR~ Find a stylist where you have seen and LOVE their work! 

A few more tips to keep in mind...

*Most stylists offer a complimentary fringe trim following haircut and color services. Take advantage of this, especially 1-2 weeks before the big day!

*If you need a haircut and color change before your Wedding, you'll also want to refresh it again about 1-2 weeks prior to you big day (If you don't have much grey hair).  If you DO have grey that you are trying to keep covered, you'll want a retouch the week before your Wedding!

*Prepping your Hair with deep conditioning treatments, and using **Salon purchased** Shampoo, Conditioner, and Styling products REALLY does your hair some GOOD!

Happy Spring Break Everyone!!!

We are SO excited that Spring is FINALLY HERE! * Can I get a WOO-HOO!* ;)

Spring ALWAYS bring up NEW hair color, FRESH Haircuts, AND LOTS and LOTS of WEDDINGS!!! 

<3 And its SO much FUN!

Everyone is getting ready for Oaks, and DERBY too! 

Oaks and Derby bring a special "Vibe" to Louisville...
The hustle and bustle that the races bring is SO exciting!

Click here to find out about ALL the neat events you can attend leading up to RACE DAY! 

So, we thought we'd share some tips on finding your perfect Oaks and Derby Attire!...


1.) We recommend that you find your outfit first!  
You want a dress that fits perfect!  
You want to feel comfortable-AND- GLAMOUROUS...if possible. <---- SUPER IMPORTANT! 
You'll want something that hugs your curves in all the right spots and a dress that isn't too LONG!  (Tip- Avoid floor length!... lots of walking, drinking, etc. could lead to a stained dress.)
ALSO- REMEMBER that the weather here in Kentucky is ALWAYS CRaZY and totally unpredictable!  So, 3/4 sleeves... CUTE Rompers, Jumsuits are TOTALLY OK! And, IN STYLE!

Here's Pantones spring colors for 2018!  
You DON'T want to get caught in colors that aren't in the current trends... 

Watch for dresses that coordinate nicely to the color palette! :)  
The cameras are sure to find YOU! (side note: the last few Oaks, and Derby races OUR Hair and Makeup Ladies have been featured in SEVERAL Magazines and interviewed for their "looks" and wardrobe! Pretty neat!)

Checkout a few FUN shops for outfits below!...(Everyone knows to try the Big-Name stores...I'm a bit of a fan of finding dresses at different places! You don't want to see your "TWIN" dress at Derby!)


I'm a HUGE FAN of a website called "ESHATKI!" It has an interesting name...but let me tell you, they custom make EVERY DRESS with ANY type of sleeve, pockets, neckline, length...WHATEVER! And- they are all VERY reasonably priced!  I've had a few dresses custom made for formal events... and you guys ~ every dress I've had several people stop and ask where I found my dress!  The most AMAZING part is that they can fit ANY Woman, ALL shapes and sizes!
Check it out here...Eshatki Custom Dresses
Heres a few of our favorite picks!...


NEW Spring dresses at Anthropology...
Our favorite Oaks and Derby Picks...


Nordstrom has some favorite picks for the Kentucky Derby too!...
Click Here ~ Nordstrom Kentucky Derby Picks


Macys has a GREAT variety of Rompers, Jumpsuites, and PLUS SIZES!


Oaks is much less "formal" than DERBY!  
For DERBY, You want to go "ALL OUT"... You'll want to wear your MOST formal dress...jewlery, hat...etc!  Oaks is also known for wearing shades of PINK to support breast cancer awareness.  And YES~ Men should ALSO wear pink too!!! :)

2.) Hat or Fascinator???

The MOST asked question!  Which to pick? Really, its personal preference!  Try on BOTH and decide which you like BEST on YOU!  

~OUR FAVORITE Local to Louisville Hat Designer is...
 ANNA HICKMAN at Dee's Crafts. 
 {Tell her Tara sent you ;) }  She's AMAZING!  She's a "behind the scenes Gal" this time of year because she hand crafts some of the MOST amazing hats AND fascinators in Dee's Crafts hat making room!  Her hats are mailed ALL OVER THE WORLD!  She can take a picture of your dress and create something AMAZING to match!  If she's busy~ ANYONE over there is AMAZING! :)
Local to Louisville, Dee's Crafts Site can be found here...Dee's 2018 Derby Hat Photoshoot

~A few years ago I stumbled across another AMAZING designer named, ARTURO RIOS on ETSY!  
His Hats and fascinators truly are works of ART! I feel like his creations you'd want to choose your FAVORITE and collaborate around his creation! ALL pictures below are HIS HATS and Fascinators and can be found by clicking the link below...Hat Artist Arturo Rios Etsy SHOP

You will SURELY be stopped by the press wearing one of his creations! 


**If you buy one~ LET US KNOW!!! We would LOVE to know which one you chose!**  

3.) HAIR & MAKEUP with BeYOUtiful Hair and Makeup { US! :) }...

We are the BEST hands down.  We've worked in the industry for over 15 years...(We started YOUNG! We give you looks that LAST!  We use all the BEST high definition tools AND products keeping you looking the BEST version of yourself ALL OAKS & DERBY day long!

Spring is around the corner!!!

That means DERBY Time is quickly approaching! (YES- We ALREADY are planning for Derby here at BeYOUtiful Hair & Makeup!) #talkderbytome ;)

We get so very excited for Derby Hair & Makeup for so many reasons!

It really puts our sweet city on the map to the rest of the world! #louisvillekentucky
And... with that, brings so much excitement of visitors from EVERYWHERE!
We just love it!  The city is blooming in full swing of SPRING and its exciting!

With the big event, Hair and Makeup is SUPER important.
Also, hair and makeup that suits the High Definition cameras is what you want!
Finding this service can be tricky. BUT- YOU have come to the right place!
We specialize in camera-ready Hair and Makeup!

I am going to post a few trends you may just see at Derby 2017!
We will also talk about how to find your PERFECT Red carpet ready look below!

First, you have to start your look based on Springs 2017 Colors.  Pantone (website listed below) beautifully creates fashion color trends for the upcoming season. Click Link below!

I am so IN LOVE with all the shades for this season!  Its all very vintage and shabby chic!

Second, when trying to coordinate the perfect derby outfit, it doesn't matter what piece you find first!  Dress, or Hat, just start with finding that perfect one you love!
Go BOLD, Go Colorful, and, go BIG (especially with the Hat! ;) )

{ SIDENOTE : For HATS and FASCINATORS, YOU MUST SEE Anna Hickman at Dee's Crafts on Shelbyville Road! You can CALL her, email her photos, whatever!  She will create a design just for YOU! She is so TALENTED!  Her regular derby clients fly in just to have her create a design for them! {tell her we sent you ;) } Her hats are so unique!  She can take a look at your dress and create one just for you! NOBODY else will have a replica! If she is already booked with hat orders, they also have other hat designers that can also take care of you! :)}

Thirdly, when it comes to Hair & Makeup, you MUST find your Hat and Dress first!

We LOVE seeing photos of our BeYOUtiful Hair & Makeup Ladies outfits prior to the big Derby Day! That helps us create the rest of your look!
