SR Bride Wedding Day Hairstyle – Victoria BC Bridal Hairstylist

January 4, 2012


Just want to remind you of how appreciative I am to have had you a part of my wedding experience.  I had only had my hair done for an occasion once, 9 years ago, and it was awful.  Im truly not exaggerating, it was my sister’s wedding and I couldn’t stop thinking, at the time, how much I hated how I looked.  I didn’t say anything because it was her day and I didn’t want to take that away from her by complaining, so I sucked it up and looked ridiculous, but what a different experience I had this time.  I just felt so amazing the day of my engagement shoot, and my wedding day and its all because of YOU!
Thanks again, Im so grateful!

SR Bride Married at The Royal Victoria Yacht Club – Pete Snell Photography

January 3, 2012

The Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry Team arrived on-location to Joy’s house to pamper her and her bridal party for her wedding taking place at The Royal Victoria Yacht Club.

Joy arrived in-studio a month before her wedding, for her wedding day preview, where we created her look.  She was inspired by a vintage theme, using smokey blues in the eyes, red lip, flawless skin, and a loose updo, which we added in hair extensions to create.

As an SR bride, Joy has access to the images that were photographed at the wedding day preview, so she could review and make changes.  She opted to go with a softer cheek & lip color, to get the exact look she was going for.  Joy and her bridal party had an SR artist for touchups throughout the wedding day, making sure everyone looked perfect for all the shots.  Talented wedding photographer, Pete Snell Photography made a beautiful slideshow to showcase Joy’s wedding!

Testimonial from Victoria SR Bride

August 25, 2011

SR Bride, Roxanne, was a pleasure to work with for her wedding taking place in Sooke, BC.  Here is her review on her SR experience:

“We eloped this summer and I hired Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry for my hair and makeup and I couldn’t have been more impressed with her professionalism and incredible service.  Sharon worked with me to tailor a package to what I needed that would work within my budget.  I had never had my makeup professionally done so I was a bit nervous as I didn’t know what to expect. She listened to me and did exactly what I had asked. She offered her honest opinion of what would look best for me.  Her studio is so welcoming and I felt totally comfortable and at ease with her.
Sharon, thank you for making my special day even more special with your talent and expertise. I will recommend you to everyone I know.”

Top Hair & Makeup Trends for Fall & Winter Brides – Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup

November 2, 2010

Fall and winter are my favorite wedding seasons of the year! They are for the ultimate chic bride with a love for trends and timeless elegance. The Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry Winter/Fall Bridal Collection features sassy, romantic updo’s, bejeweled styling, smoky hues and subtle shimmer for any SR bride.

Top Bridal Trends for Fall and Winter

Hair: Fall and winter hair is less about structure and all about movement. Let’s blend styles to create a relaxed romantic updo that truly expresses your personality. For ladies with short sassy sexy hair, a beautiful flower piece or jeweled accessory is the ultimate striking centerpiece. For brides with long beautiful hair, dare to bare your tresses in silky layers or soft bouncy curls. But be sure to steer clear of the straightening iron this season! Instead, create a straight but voluminous look by creating a few loose waves with velcro rollers or winding your hair around a full-barreled curling iron.

Skin: Fall and winter bridal skin is clean and matte with cheek colour looking very subtle. Soft and sexy complexion is the key for this earthy season, with a hint of colour on the eyes.

Lips: Indulge your lips in dark berry tones and rich reds for a regal elegance.

Eyes: It’s all about the eyes! This season’s brides are adorned with beautiful smokey eyes. But instead of using typical blacks and charcoals to achieve that sexy, smokey look, bridal fashion is leaning towards  lush and sophisticated colours. Think deep purples, smokey greys and blue jewel tones–you can’t go wrong!

Lashes: Long lashes are big this season! A huge trend, especially on the West Coast, is the permanent eyelash extension. Brides all year round are treating themselves long, natural looking, lustful lashes! Not keen on the glued route? No problems, simply layer on the mascara. Several coats will create a full dark set of lashes that is bound to turn heads!

Touch Up Kit: A wedding day MUST! Carry a touch-up kit with concealer, pressed powder, lipstick or gloss, lip liner, tissues, and mints.  Make sure you also have a mini sewing kit (for emergency clothing fixes like a dropped hem or popped button), static spray, a lint remover and pre-wrapped wipes to remove makeup and food stains.

So there you have it: Insider tips and tricks for the Fall and Winter Bride!  Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry takes the latest in bridal trends to highlight your features, your dress and your jewellery to create a one-of-a-kind style on your wedding day.
