Like an old world Hollywood starlet


Having gone for a classic and simple gown Hayley opted for keeping all the drama focused on her hair. She wore an incredible handmade hair piece and bird cage veil. They both came from a lady in Taranaki I believe… I’ll post a link to her site when I find it. Hayley’s hair was just past shoulder length at the time, but we decided a faux bob would be really flattering to her heart shape face and work well with her accessories too. Working with pincurls, I strategically placed them to accentuate Hayley’s cheekbones and fame her eyes. A generous helping of individual lashes concentrated at the outer corners of her eyes finished off her glowing makeup look.
