Short hair and sophisticated Up-do
The wedding season is in full-swing, and my calendar is full of bridal shower and baby shower invites leading up to wedding days! As you may already know, I have short hair. My style is very simple when it comes to make-up and hair-dos. I barely know how to use my curling iron, and never know how to do an up-do with such short hair. At a loss for ideas, I reached out to my friend Mahmuda from Girl_Ishh, who does bridal and special occasion hair-do and always knows how to make me feel good! We partnered up to feature a hair-style for your next event!
I wanted something that has a lot of texture and a hairstyle look thats powerful yet feminine. After going through a few ideas, we decided to go with an up-do that's a bit edgy and fun, and one that will accentuate my elongated neck and complement the high-collared white lace top. This beautifully sculptured, mohawk-inspired up-do is sure to make a statement and is perfect for any formal events, weddings, bridal events, or even prom! Imagine hair-accessories or even fresh flowers incorporated into this style! For wedding related events, white might be acceptable at a South Asian bridal shower or event where red or blush is the go-to color for brides. So, be mindful of the dress-code and the event you are attending.
To dress up this look, I kept jewelry and accessories to a minimum, so to not take away from the hair-style. I would normally pair this skirt and look with a nude, strapped-heels, but I went with the laser cut leather to add to the top and hair.
As we headed for the Gaithersburg Marriott Washingtonian Center, we stopped by the water to pay a visit to our friends, ducky and turtle!
My goodness do I love this hair-style and the work Mahmuda did to create it. It stayed in place without any extra effort from me. It also maintained it's shape and form throughout the entire day!
This fashionable mohawk-inspired up-do made me feel elated the whole day (proof below)!
