Lucky W.

Lucky was such a sweetheart! She was surrounded by amazing friends and family on her wedding day.

Venue: Flying V Ranch located in Decatur, Texas

Hair and Make up: Michelle and Allison with POP

Photographer: Josh Morgan Creative

Lucky wanted a romantic and natural look for both her hair and make up. I thought it was sooooo perfect that instead of a veil we used flowers and tucked them into the loose Dutch-French braids.


Laci S.

Laci!! What a beautiful soul!! It was so much fun getting to know this young woman! Her wedding was so uniquely and brilliantly simple and romantic. She got married under a giant tree at the Stonebridge wedding venue located in Blum, Texas.

For Laci’s hair she was feeling the “boho vibes”. We did an effortless and loose curled pony with braided and floral details. I thought the fresh and colorful flowers was a fresh spin on the ever so popular floral crown!  My team mate, Darla did the make up! She gave Laci and her maids a soft natural look. They all glowed with beauty and happiness.

Tips for Trial runs!

Ten Tips for Trial Runs:

  1. Come with your hair clean and dry. Never use a flat iron before the trial run or wedding day appointments. Doing so will not allow the curls to last and perform the same way.
  2. Arrive with no make up. Most professionals will carry a moisturizer and primer in their kits.
  3. Have some inspirations ready to share with your artist(s). Pinterest or internet photos are a great way to share visions and ideas.
  4. Wear a button down shirt or scoop neck collar so it is easy to take off without messing up hair or make up. I like to suggest white so you can get a better visual of the overall look.
  5. Bring your accessories! Hair clips, veils, earrings, etc. Its fun to see it all put together when you’re feeling beautiful.
  6. Share photos of yourself on how you look on a daily basis. This gives the artist a gage on how bold or naturally you identify as. If you are a simple gal we should keep it natural. Most importantly you want to look and feel like yourself on your wedding day!
  7. Take photos with a flash camera at the trial run so you can get an idea of how the look is going to photograph. I like to get all angles so you get an idea of the total package!
  8. Make plans for afterwards! You’ll be all dolled up so take advantage and show it off! Schedule a date night, bachelorette, shower or even schedule your engagement or bridal photos the day you do your trial run.
  9. Buy the lip color! If it’s a match then go ahead and purchase it so you can reapply the day of the wedding.
  10. Speak up! This is the most important advice of them all. Now is the opportunity to see the look come to life! Try different options with bangs, hairlines, and lipstick!

This wedding was sooooooo unique!! Emily and her family were such humble people and a pleasure to work with!

For Emily’s hair I  added a ton of curls to create lots of movement and texture. She wanted some curls to loosely fall to give it a more effortless look. All the make up was done airbrush and very natural by PoP’s artist Marcy.

Avant Garde Fun- Medusa

Allison, Matt and I collaborated last year to do an avant garde creative photo session. We used Allison as our model and she did her make on on her own face. I braided her hair into a ton of small sectioned braids and then attached the chain mill to each braid by hand… it was tedious. I feel like we were channeling an inner “Medusa” I think the braids represented a snake-like texture. I think we did a great job on our piece. Check it out!
