It was actually my bridesmaid, and one of my best friends, who did my hair and make-up on my wedding day. She is a professional hair dresser and make-up artist, and I’m so glad she agreed to help me, even though I know she was really nervous about it. It’s good to get help from someone who knows you and really cares about you, because it’s important to them to make it the best day of your life, so you know they’ll give it their best. And Marhu certainly did. She’s always a perfectionist, but I know she really put her heart into making everything as perfect as possible for my special day.
For the first-look and the photo shoot on the beach, she curled my hair, and pinned one side up with a crystal hair comb. I wanted it to be laid back and casual, but pretty. So we went for a long, wavy, beachy look.
Then before the ceremony, she gave me a half updo, with the headband my mom had given me, to make a little more formal and elegant.
We had tried out both hair-do’s and make-up before the big day off course, but she pretty much nailed what I wanted right away. That’s one of the benefits of working with someone who knows you ♥
In addition to working freelance, Marhu currently works at Studio M in Sandvika, and Model Day Studio in Oslo. If you want to look your best on your wedding day, you should get Marhu to do your hair and make-up!
