A few months ago I was approached by Lauren of Southern Savvy Events to collaborate on a very special project. If you look around Charlotte you will see tons of beautiful old buildings that are being torn down to rebuild apartments for the quickly growing metropolitan. In the heart of downtown Charlotte there is a stunning building called, The GoodYear Building. The GoodYear Building oringally served as an automative service center and for the day of our styled shoot it was our stunning yet edgy backdrop!
The idea behind this styled shoot was to put an edgy twist on a timeless wedding and snap a piece of history! As a wedding hairstylist it gave me the freedom to breakout of the mold of doing ‘traditional wedding hairstyles’ in exchange for a modern updo. When I met our model Alyssa the first thing she mentioned was how much she loved a fishtail braid and she instantly spoke to my heart. For Alyssa’s wedding hairstyle we decided to do a loose, textured, updo with a fishtail going down the back. This hairstyle is simple, elegant, yet edgy! I could not be more proud or excited to show you this incredible collaboration and the piece of history we captured!
AND P.S. This shoot was so amazing Fab You Bliss decided to feature us on their website!
