Yours, Mine equals Ours

What a nice surprise to hear from Carolyn this week. Carolyn was married 7/07 and Loved how beautiful she felt on the wedding, so she did the best compliment a company can have….she brought her future daughter in law to Design Visage for hair and make-up services for her wedding 7/09. We are so excited to be a part of Alyssa’s wedding. But in the meantime let’s take a look at Carolyn and Neils day.

So the yours, mine equals ours: Neil has 3 children and Carolyn has 2 children…so now we have one big Brady Bunch.

So how did they meet? Carolyn is a nurse and a college set her up with a friend…..Neil. Well this is one blind date that went well. They went to dinner, were so engrossed in the conversation, did not even realize that everyone was gone, the restaurant was closed leaving only the closing crew. I guess it was love at first site.

They were engaged on Friday the 13th. The wedding was at the stunning Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, Sherly Rossell coordinated the day and the photos were shot by Moments by Michelle  . Carolyn loves bling……there were rhinestones on the cake, bouquet, frames, floral arrangements, the invitation, and all down the back of her dress. It was one sparkly day.

Hannah was Carolyn’s DV artist, and you will see how fantastic her eyes look. They applied a bronze contour with a lot of lashes. Look at those eyes.

Carolyn and Neil went to Bora Bora for their Honeymoon. For their one year anniversary they returned to Bora Bora with all 5 kids, this year for the 2nd year anniversary, they are returning to Bora Bora alone.

Thanks Carolyn for reconnecting with us and the incredible compliment of bringing Alyssa to us. We will take very good care of her.

How Cute

A few days ago we did a wonderful post on Naomi and Larry………. Their wedding was featured on the knot website and in the new Fall Knot Magazine. So Naomi saw our post and of course loved it……although today I received these photos. As per Naomi the wedding hairstyle and bridal make-up were so beautiful that the photos we featured did not do it justice……..WOW thanks Naomi we love to hear that you loved loved how beautiful you looked and felt. So let’s see a few more shots of Naomi.

Naomi I believe you were right……look at that fantastic hairstyle….brava Michelle (her DV artist).

Once again I want to thank Ryan Phillips Photography. We so loved being a part of Naomi’s wedding. The best part though, is that we get to see Naomi often as we beautify her brides. Thanks DNT Elite Events we love your brides.

If rain drops were kisses,I could send you showers. if hugs were seas i send you oceans. and if love was a person i send you me!!

The Stunning Stacy

September 7th, 2008 Stacy was married at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach. What a beautiful girl.


The stunning photographs were taken by Vanessa Preziose Photography

Lauren, Stacy’s artist helped her with a classic look. A light smoky eye with natural lips and her lovely blond hair pulled off her face….you can see what a good choice it was.

Stacy has become a part of the Design Visage family, she comes in to see Lauren for hair services. 



What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.

Previews..Previews..Previews..Design Visage

Lots of previews lately……all the girls are coming to get more beautiful. I am sure I have stated this before, but the preview is sooooo important for both the bride and hairstylist. DO not try and save money on this part of your wedding. You need to decide prior to the wedding how you will style your hair, what color lips you like, lashes, no lashes. We have a good time here at Design Visage during the week with all our brides. Getting to know you and the special details of your wedding. Come in…..you will not be disappointed.

This is Noelle….isn’t she beautiful…we forgot to get the before…..so here is the after. Her wedding is October 16th…will be here before you know it.

This is our sweet Lordes. She is getting married in August, although we have had the pleasure of seeing her a few times for engagement photos, her shower…it has been great.

Lordes has to decide between the up or half up……what do you think? The wedding will be at the Jonathan Club in Santa Monica.

Lordes chose to take advantage of Design Visage’s rent a headpiece….she will wear this beautiful piece for a fraction of the cost……check it out.

Shelbi and Mike May 8, 09

Thanks to Heather at Shadow Catcher Imagery we are able to get you the pictures of Shelbi and Mike just a few days after the event. There were married at the beautiful Marriott in Newport Beach Fashion Island.


Lauren and Heather were Shelbi’s Design Visage artists. Apparently Shelbi lost her voice on the wedding day so she was very quite while the girls were performing their beauty magic. During the beauty session, Mike sent Shelbi a bouquet of flowers….which is lovely, although inside this bouquet was a ipod with a playlist of their significant songs ready for Shelbi to play while she was getting ready. WOW we see why you married Mike! 


Shelbi is not a big make-up girl…….so Lauren chose the golds with a natural mauve for her eye, and paired it with natural lips and cheeks. You will notice the glowy, dewy look that was also incorporated. I love Shelbi’s hair choice…….loose curls……beautiful.


Thanks again Shadow Catcher Imagery for the photos.
