What elevates bridal hair styling and bridal makeup application to bridal hair and makeup artistry?

Attention to detail, for one. Also: creativity, skill and a deep understanding of both the bride (her personality, her sense of herself, her preferences and passions) and of the occasion. Blush Hair & Makeup Artistry doesn’t take the “art” part of its job lightly. This esteemed Houston hair and makeup team specializes in “naturally gorgeous” bridal hair styling and makeup for bridal showers, photo shoots and the big day itself.

The Blush signature look is effortlessly beautiful, and includes boho chic updos, deconstructed buns, braided updos and tousled, and clip-in hair extensions for long, naturally pretty wedding hairstyles, along with traditional and airbrush makeup, and lush faux lashes. Your Blush artists will style you and your bridesmaids in their studio, or at the bridal-prep location of your choice. No matter where you get your Blush on, you can expect total VIP service and bridal hair styling and makeup that withstands whatever the big day throws its way–whether heat, humidity or high-energy dancing long into the wee hours. That’s why we call on Blush Hair & Makeup Artistry for some of our biggest styled shoots. And why you should call Blush ASAP, to schedule your Houston bridal beauty consultation. And don’t forget to tell them you found them on Weddings in Houston. Happy beautifying, bride-to-be!

3 Hot Bridal Hairstyles + Our Earring Picks for Each!

Hairstyle + earrings = the frame for your beautiful bridal face! Inspired by these looks? Make sure to ask your jeweler to show you a selection of similar earring designs to pair with your perfect ‘do

1.) Boho Braid. French, Dutch, fishtail or a combo of techniques…whichever you choose for your wedding-day look, braided bridal hairstyles are so on trend. Natural hair not quite long enough to rock braided locks for your big day? Azur Salon at West Ave has the solution for that! Natural or…helped out a bit…wear your long bridal braid swept to the side, and pair it with a textured drop or modern ear-crawler for maximum cool.

2. Messy Updo. Part classic chignon, part sexy tousle, the slightly undone updo is a lovely bridal hairstyle choice for medium to long locks. Because this style already has a lot of texture and movement, you don’t want to add more with super-elaborate chandelier earrings or oversize stones. Instead, opt for an elegant piece of hair jewelry, and dress your lobes with delicate pearl-and-diamond drops or studs.

3. Half Up, Half Down. It’s a style compromise…in the most beautiful way! The half-updo takes your hair out of your face, but also allows for flow and movement. It’s both demure and dramatic, and it’s the perfect bridal hairstyle to frame your pretty face, and showcase a larger, sophisticated bridal earring style.
