Open House for Wedding Hairstyles

Posted by with No Comments

On Aug. 13, we were excited to hold our very first Wedding Hairstyle Open House to showcase our bridal hair and makeup services!


Two of our stylists, Karolina and Paula, came armed with bobby pins, hairspray and a curling iron to create an array of different wedding hairstyles that brides can choose from on their big day.

Karolina created various wedding hairstyles for Mary, who is getting married later this month downtown. With Mary’s long, thick, wavy hair, Karolina was able to create several soft, yet dramatic looks that would complement her beaded, taffeta ball gown.


One look featured Mary’s hair curled and swept over to one side, with a feathered hairpiece tucked into the back that would look dramatic as she walked down the aisle. Another look was half-up and half-down, with criss-crossed pieces in the back to create a subtle focal point. And a third hairstyle featured half of her hair put up into a soft bun, with the rest cascading in gentle waves down her back.


Meanwhile, Paula created several different wedding hairstyles on her model, Erin, who had medium-length finer hair. Paula’s styles focused on variations of loose, textured updo’s – a popular look for today’s brides. She created a messy bun at the base of Erin’s neck, a bun that also featured a side braid, a tucked-in up-do, and a tight, elegant twist featuring decorative criss-crossed strands.


In addition to getting a peak into some of today’s most popular looks in wedding hairstyles, wedding planners were also treated to a tour of the salon and spa, as well as wine and hors d’oeuvres, compliments of A La Carte Catering in Wilmette.


“It was so much fun to show people our wedding capabilities,” said Melissa Kaufman, manager of Robert Gold Salon & Spa. “I think everyone had a good time and got lots of ideas for looks they can recommend for other brides!”


Robert Gold Salon & Spa is an ideal bridal boutique because we are truly a full-service salon. Brides can come with their entire wedding party to get their hair and makeup done in one spot, and we provide free mimosas, coffee, and bagels to make your beauty session feel like a party. In addition, we offer facials, manicures and massages, so brides can have a full morning of pampering before their ceremonies.
