Grad Hair and Makeup

Posted on: June 11th, 2014 by Heidi Bogi No Comments

We were asked to do a segment on Grad Trends for 2014 for CTV Calgary.  Lucky enough we had some beautiful ladies already booked for their actual grads so we were able to use them as our models.

Once we took a look at their dresses we designed a look for each of them that had elements of the current trends.  As you review the looks, you will see that there is some sort of textured element to each look.  With the show Game of Thrones, and the movie Hunger Games, braiding is all over the screens.  We kept it very classic with both the hair and makeup. All of our Grads are so naturally beautiful that the before and afters are not too dramatic but you can see that a little makeup and hair can really polish up a look!

Rachel’s dress had some beautiful lace detailing and that combined with the neck line we decided to take the hair off of her shoulders.   Keeping it low and soft in the back with some nice detail.  With her makeup we went dark and glamorous to complement the dramatic contrast of her black and white colored dress.

Mycah’s dress came from a great local store in Calgary called Frocks.  With its romantic and soft feel, we chose to do a classic wave in her hair.  Swept over to one side with a basic braid to add interest and subtle detail.  With her makeup we did a slightly darker lip to continue with the romantic vibe of her dress, and kept the eye soft and neutral.

With Rachel’s dress we went with a very trendy top knot.  We were inspired by the color and simplicity of the gown, which gave us a ballerina essence.   Pulling the hair up and off her face with a bit of texture would be very suiting.  We all  Her makeup was done a bit more glamorous.  Dark enough to add some depth and edge but soft enough to keep it elegant.  We also did a second look with Rachel.  A detailed lower side up-do which complemented the dress as well.

It was an early morning and I have to thank all these grads for happily getting up!  Robyn and Robin, this would not have happened without all your hard work and talent! Thanks for getting up at 4:00am for the 5 minute segment 😉
