Your wedding day is undoubtedly one of the most important days of your life, and so it’s only natural that every bride wishes to be looking as amazing as possible. Here at Vintage Bride we are a strong believer of hiring professionals when it comes to hair and makeup so that your inner beauty is enhanced to the max. This is not the day for dabbling in DIY hair and makeup (unless you are a professional hair and makeup artist yourself). With this in mind we’d love to introduce you to one of our favourite Brisbane based hair and makeup professionals, An Eye For Style.
Tell us a little bit about An Eye for Style and the services that you offer?

Our services include hair styling, airbrush makeup & traditional makeup.

When it comes to the bride’s hair and makeup trial, they can try on our hair accessories, veils and jewellery . The brides can see which accessories match perfectly with their hair and makeup.
Share with us how you came to launch An Eye For Style?
After I got married I missed planning my wedding. So I thought how can be involved in other peoples weddings. That’s when I decided to train as a hair and makeup artist, then expanded into bridal accessories.
What inspires you when it comes to creating your stunning bridal looks?
I’m always looking for what styles are on trend. A take inspirations from the latest makeup palettes, & hair and makeup techniques . I love looking at wedding dresses to help with the latest looks.
When it comes to the bride I ask multiple questions about their wedding to help them decide on their hair, makeup and accessories they choose.

Do you offer hair trials or any other special packages? If so we’d love to find out about the services that you offer brides in addition to styling on the day.
Yes, we do offer trials. We do the trial in our studio. We also offer special packages for the bride and bridesmaids which includes hair styling airbrush makeup, false lashes and a lipgloss each.
We love a great bridal hair accessory – what are your favourite types of accessories at the moment?
The lace headpieces and the floral crowns are my favourite types of accessories. Very fashionable at the moment !
What advice do you have for brides when they are deciding on the perfect hair & makeup look for themselves and their bridesmaids?
To think about the whole picture. Is your hair and makeup going to go with your dress? Are you having an indoor wedding or outdoor wedding ? If it’s a windy day and your ceremony is outdoors, it might be a good idea to pin all your hair up. Also be comfortable with your look and enhance your natural beauty. You want your groom to recognise you when you walk down the isle !
What advice do you have with respect to brides having a different hair style or colouring their hair before the big day?
Not to try anything to drastic as you might regret it. If you want to try a different hair style or colour, try the style out ages before your wedding. Then you will have a chance to fix it if you don’t like it.
It’s always tricky for brides to plan out the timings for their wedding morning – on average how long does it take for you to style each bride / bridesmaid?
We allow 1.5 hours per person for hair and makeup. We don’t have to rush and gives us enough time to make any adjustments.
When you’re not making brides and their bridesmaids look even more amazing what do you like to do in your spare time?
I go the beach and love watching movies.
For 2016/2017 what sort of trends do you think there will be with wedding hair styles and make up for both brides and bridesmaids?
The vintage and boho styles will still be on trend in 2016/2017. Gorgeous romantic hairstyles will continue to be popular. And soft , fresh looking makeup is popular. Brides want to look like themselves !
