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:

Wow we are truly in bridal season. Lots of preview pictures and difficult to get photos from the photographers….they are busy too. So let’s see what our brides are up to. Fun to see what bridal make-up and wedding hairstyles they choose. Remember this is the preview….only looks half as good as on the day. The reason is that the artists do not put as much product in the hair, so they can change styles, and make-up, often we try different colors on the eyes to see which will pop the eye color and look the best.


This is Kristen, she is getting married this week-end at the Surf and Sand. Her photographer is Lauren Hillary…so we will have some great pics. You may recognize Kristen, we did her sister Jennifer’s wedding in March.





This is Mary….we did Mary’s wedding last year. We see Mary often for cut and color services, and this was a fun 1940’s event that we had the pleasure of making Mary shine.

Design Visage wants to thank all our brides.

Like anyone else, there are days I feel beautiful and days I don’t, and when I don’t, I do something about it.

Too cute…Jenn at Arroyo Trabuco

March 21st, 2009 we did a wedding with a fantastic group of professionals. Jenn and Marc joined their love at the Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club. Kerrie Underhill ( I really think she should change it to Underwood!) of Platinum Weddings did the coordination and the very talented and kind photographer Amy Squires took the photos. I love these pictures. Heather and Michelle were the Design Visage artists, and lets not forget The Fry Girl. I mean little fresh hot donuts to take away at the end of the night…..could it be any better.

Heather used a few hair extensions to add fullness and a bit of length. Many hairstyles look best with a bit of added hair…don’t worry no one is the wiser.

The DV girls did make-up and hair on all the bridesmaids….do you have to be cute to be a friend of Jenn?

This next picture is of Jenn and her sister Kristine….Kristine is getting married July 18th at the Surf and Sand….we are excited to be a part of her wedding as well. Of course pictures will be posted.
