Natural Look Bridal Makeup and Hair for a Kauai Destination Wedding

 Ashley wanted something special for her Kauai wedding hairdo and makeup...


She wanted to look like herself...only better!



Her skin was naturally beautiful, and we didn't want to cover up her gorgeous freckles, so we didn't apply foundation, just a little Makeup Forever Airbrush Powder to bring down the shine a little. We added all neutral color eyeshadow and eyeliner, a little mascara and some shimmering lipgloss...and it all let her own happy glow shine through...




We created a low, textured chignon with a French braid going back on one side and a simple side part...

add multicolored orchids to match her bouquet flowers and she looks totally gorgeous and ready for her Kauai beach wedding!

Hair and Makeup for a Snapchat Commercial Video on Kauai...Not a Wedding...But Cool!

This is the SnapChat Video Shot on Kauai For Which I Did Hair and Makeup!

Another part of my many jobs here on Kauai is doing hair and makeup on models for commercial shoots. It's super fun job and I get to meet lots of creative (and gorgeous) people. Kauai is popular because there are all types of exotic landscapes-from sandy beaches with turquoise water, to rocky outcroppings and cool misty pine tree forests. 

Kauai destination brides choose it for the same reason- unspoiled, uncrowded natural beauty!

 The couple's good friend played his guitar for the bride's entrance, another good reason to use a garden for the ceremony as opposed to the public beach...you can have amplified music!

This Kauai Destination Wedding's Bride Brought her Own Makeup, and Had Her Hair Done on the Mainland!


This Kauai bride brought a makeup kit she had bought after a consultation at a makeup counter, so   it would match her complexion exactly.

From the Salon to the Ceremony, the Making of a Kauai Destination Wedding Bride!

The wedding hair and makeup starts at 7am, in my salon in Kapaa, Kauai, with the bride, the bride's mom, and her bridesmaids...

Here is the bride before...looking good for so early in the morning! 
Finishing up her hairdo

Last touches on her smokey eye makeup, she wanted plum colors to emphasis her beautiful green eyes...

 
All of the bride's makeup had to be humidity-proof, and tear-proof!
All done except the lip gloss...

"I cried a lot of happy tears, and the makeup held up! Amazing!"













"Absolutely loved all of our hair and makeup. It was a perfect day...thank you!"

Consider a Haku Lei, a Kauai Destination Wedding Bride Favorite!


A custom-made Hawaiian flower headpiece can add a tropical twist to your bridal hairstyle for your Kauai destination wedding!!!



This bride decided to wear her hair all down, as that was her groom's preference...


So Jolene at Kealoha Flowers worked with her to create a perfectly fitted haku lei...and the bride just loved it! (So did I!)
Make sure to ask your florist for hair flower ideas, and have them delivered early so we can install them at your hair and makeup styling appointment.
