by Brooklyn Bride

I look forward to the Academy Awards every year during awards season, because really, who doesn't love seeing fancy dresses come down a red carpet? But this year, I've gotta say I wasn't really blown away with the dresses (except YOU Naomi Watts, you knocked it out of the park!) So this time I thought I'd focus on the gents, because most got it really right!

Wedding Day Hairstyles Straight from the Red Carpet

by Azure

Almost as important as what the stars wear to the Oscars, is how they wear their hair! You may not be able to afford a couture gown like the dresses we looked at yesterday, but you can definitely copy red carpet style for your wedding day hair. Two contradictory trends emerged this year: 1) Soft, loose updos – Think Charlize Theron, Demi Moore, and Anna Kendrick with their hair out of the way, but still loose and romantic. 2) Super slick updos – Think Sarah Jessica Parker,...

Wedding Hair, Hollywood Style

by Azure

Sunday night’s Academy Awards didn’t hold many surprises in terms of the winners, but I for one was surprised by how many stars had their hair down: Angelina Jolie, Jessica Biel, Nicole Kidman (Actually, I’m a little confused actually as to whether her hair was up or down).
