Barnet Photography/Wedding Hair/The Island Hotel

Mariam was such a fun bride….you will see by her choice in colors and style. She has the entire package, style, beauty, and smarts.

She was having difficulty finding a bridal hairstylist that shared her vision for her bridal look….fortunately Barnet Photography gave her the Design Visage number and the rest is beauty history.

Yes Mariam is stunning….although Barnet Photography did a rockin job on the photography (they always do)………

Dana, Miriam’s Design Visage artist outdid herself on this look….don’t you agree?

The cute warm up suit Miriam purchased on Bridalmode...our accessory wedding site….go see all the fun….

Dress was absolutely fantastic….

You have to admire the detail in Mariam’s hair…just as fantastic as the dress.

Next post is the party….and did they ever have a party…..tune in to see the reception of a lifetime…you have to tune into the Iranian Ceremony.

Sheri Wade Photography/Wedding Hair/Surf and Sand Hotel

Rachel works in catering at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Hotel in Dana Point, so you can imagine how honored we were when she called Design Visage for her wedding hairstyle….every week-end Rachel sees the hair and make-up for all the brides….and she chose us…yipee

Sheri Wade Photography did amazing work…….

I love Rachel’s style…look at the fantastic bow with color and bling….love love it!!

Wedding Hairstyle:

  • Lauren was Rachel’s Design Visage artist….they decided to create a romantic half up half down hairstyle
  • This style is most successful if you have thick hair….and Rachel has wonderful hair
  • Lauren curled the entire back with a 1 1/2 iron and set it. After the hair was cool, Lauren lightly placed the hair in a tosseled natural look
  • The very important front was softly pulled back and lightly pinned to create a soft look and shows off Rachel’s lovely face

Melody Walker of Events by Melody Walker organized the day and as always it went off with a hitch…..It is so nice when we work wilth wedding coordinators….the wedding always runs so smoothly and the brides is always on time….  Rachel took advantage of our “Borrow a Veil” service and save a lot of cash…..

The wedding was at the beautiful Surf and Sand Hotel in Laguna….This Hotel is RIGHT on the sand and has the most amazing view and sunset….if you are looking for a location for your wedding…check it out.

Rachel wrote such a nice review on Project Wedding for Design Visage..I had to share:

All I can say is Wow! I had an amazing experience with Design Visage. The price was VERY reasonable, especially being able to borrow a veil(for a bride on a budget, this was AMAZING)

Lauren was my artist and was such a pleasure to work with. I have a permanent straightener on my hair which does not allow my hair to hold any kind of style ever….but Lauren made it happen. My hair held up with curls! all night…All of my bridesmaids looked beautiful, even my maid of honor who was insistent on doing her own hair quickly changed her mind when she saw Lauren’s work.

Thank you so much for making me and all my girls look beautiful on the wedding day!

I will be recommending Design Visage!


Thanks again to all the Great Vendors:

Design Visage Heather…Getting Married…

What a fun time when one of our own ties the knot. Yes Heather is getting married this Sat, February 27th to her awesome man James….we have been following the love affair for a few years now and could not be happier…

Heather chose Design Visage Lauren to beautify her for the engagement photos below and Lauren will also be there on Sat to make Heather shine….

Are they not just the cutest couple???


Engagement Hairstyle:

  • Heather has beautiful hair…although as hair artists do, they make it even better. First Lauren added highlight and low lights to Heathers hair (yes we do fabulous color her at Design Visage as well)
  • Second, Lauren added a few wefts of real hair extensions that were colored to match Heather’s Hair
  • Lauren then curled all Heather’s hair with a 1 1/2 inch iron….running her fingers through it after it was set….a slight tease on the top
  • Bangs were slightly curled to the side….add a hair jewel and waaala…perfect look


Engagement make-up:

  • Heather has stunning eyes and she is not afraid of making them up….which was fun for Lauren since she loooooves make-up.
  • The eye shadows were several shades of plums…brings out a blue eye…a thicker black liner on top that was extended outside the eye to enlarge the eye
  • Lips and cheeks….natural tones of Heather’s own cheek and lip color

Stay tuned for the wedding photos……

Rancho Las Lomas/Wedding Hair and Make-Up/Scott Nelson Photography

Another stunning wedding at Rancho Las Lomasphotographed by my dear old friend Scott Nelson Photography (not that he is old…just dear). Elizabeth, as you will see is a beautiful bride…let’s take a look:


Rancho Las Lomas is one of my favorite locations for a wedding….and Scott Nelson Photography really captured some terrific shots…



Lauren, Elizabeth’s Design Visage artist created the look…

Wedding Hairstyle:

Wow 2009 was the year for the half updo, or you could say half down do. Anyway you look at it…lots of hair on the shoulders. Lauren created this romantic style with a 1 inch iron. She set the hair and then fingered out the curls to look natural. She pinned the sides softly and a side part for the front which adds a bit of elegance….




Wedding Make-Up:

Elizabeth is fair complected (like me) so the brows add much to her look….Lauren defined her brows with a natural brow powder added browns and golds on the lid….a set of lashes and pop the eyes…wow.  Add a mauve lip and cheek and you have a stunning natural look for a georgeous blond.


Scott Nelson Photography works alot at Rancho Las Lomas…so her has the inside scoop on the great photo opps…


The half updo works for beautiful girlies at any age



You can find the hair jewels on Bridalmodeall your bridal hair jewel needs.



Thanks Elizabeth for allowing Design Visage to be a part of your day…
