Something every bride wonders is, how should I have my hair for my wedding? You want a style that looks fresh and up to date, but at the same time it is elegant enough for a special event. Without further ado, these are the latest wedding hair trends for brides.
Every couple of seasons, there is a big shift in hot styles for wedding dresses, bride's beauty, accessories and the like. The latest bridal towels certainly presented a different approach to bridal hairstyles than in recent years. The messy, tousled look is out, replaced by a much more polished and classic approach to styling hair. Personally, I am all for it, because the current hairdressers are much more glamorous and folded together than their shore-like counterparts. With one of these stylish new hairstyles, you see every time the wonderful woman who is ready to marry, and the look becomes as appealing in your photos twenty years from now as it is today. (Not so much the deliberate messy styles in recent years, which will lead many bride's future children to a day asking why she didn't brush her hair for her wedding!)
The polished chignon is the ultimate new bride's hairstyle. Classic, ladylike and sophisticated, it will complement all wedding dresses. The perfect way to do that is with a little height on top and crown (very subtle and even, so you don't look like you have a Bump-it!). This softens the look and keeps it from becoming difficult. A single large hair ornament is the perfect finishing touch for a chignon. Put a fresh gardenia in the side of it, or add some drama with a spray of feathers. Wonderful!
A variation on chignon is the intricate bull. The hair is cut before it is formed into a large, low bun form. The sections can be braided or smooth, depending on how much hair you have. It's a very nice style, as polished as a chignon, but a little more youthful. The intricate bun would be wonderful for a young bride. Sparkly bridal hair jewelry cast along one side of the bun is the freshest accessory. Use either a crystal bedecked comb or a crystal hairpin cluster to complete the look to perfection.
Romantic styles are always wonderful for brides. Medium wavy hair looks amazing when stuck in a faux-bob style that gives rise to the Jazz Age. The hair is loosely gathered at the front and leaves enough drape to resemble the effect of a bob, and the rest is retracted and pinned on the back of the head. It is a stylish combination of a hairstyle that is rolled back, but has a lot of hair that appears in the front. Try it with one of the 1920s inspired wedding dresses with beaded shiffs to look like the modern version of a glamorous flute!
In the latest bridal shows, it was a move away from having the hair mostly down. If you want hair like cascades over your shoulders, a smooth and polished style with the front is folded back the way to go. The beachy bedless wavy look that has been so common looks quite suddenly very much 2009. In addition to a return to a polished elegance, the only thing that the bride's hairstyles have in common is that the bridal jewelry is worn near the head. Leave the tall tiara in favor of an elegant jeweled double headband, sparkling hairpins or a glamorous comb molded in the side of a bun. You will see every piece of the modern and elegant bride.
During my art class day, I chose to develop the week's assignment at the Belgian symbolist style painter Jean Delville. Not too many people know about this artist's fine work, but when presented to their work, they immediately appreciate his efforts. Delville was a bit of a controversial individual in his days since he was heavily involved in studies that revolved around spirituality and occult.
This Belgian painter began his art career at the age of twelve and was intended to begin professional exhibitions when he turned twenty years. It was during this time frame that he became interested in various esoteric subjects. It was likely that these early studies involved the occult subjects, which had a clear influence on his later paintings.
Not only was Jean Delville a talented painter but he was also a writer of varieties. He would often comment on his philosophies of life in his prose but carefully watched some comments about his paintings. This lack of conversation related to his canvas work continued a silence on the paintings themselves. No one really knew why, where or when about one of his artwork and as a result rumors often made their rounds.
His son Oliver tells us how his father was determined to deliver his life philosophies to the rest of the world through his paintings and his accompanying writings. During his later years, he tried to supplement his small income by providing lessons with private course instruction. His son to this day looks to his father as a brave man with an immortal sense of endurance.
Although Delville attempted to gain recognition in his field, he failed substantially in his goal. By the middle of the 1950s he was basically unknown in the art community and only after his death several years later was a revival of interest that was generated in his work.
From the War Drawing of Mrs. Stuart Merrill's portrait up to Satin's treasures we find a mess of the bizarre and the abnormal that generates an aura of mystery for those who see them. My specific selection was extremely difficult, as I admire the majority of his artwork. In a work of art, we have portraits of Mrs. Stuart Merrill who is busy in her trance as a state with her eyes focused upward toward the sky. We intensely glaze her orange shaded hair, as it gracefully combines with the backlight of her radiant aura. Did Delville make the viewer interpret these hot colors that surround the media's head as a comparison with humanity's earthly desires of fiery passion and ultimate sensuality? Was he personally the victim of this passion we are talking about? I think there are great opportunities for this.
Getting into the artist's mind would be a difficult task at best, but we see the model with bold display of the book with a triangle on the one indicating the creator's acceptance of the belief in canned and other occult values.
When we look carefully at the drawing, we get the impression that Mrs Merrill seems to be a flogging of a potential inauguration invitation to the public. We see her resting the book under her chin and supporting it with her hands to give a magical appeal to the viewer. It really seems like an open invitation for everyone to see her "The Book of Shadow".
Viewing this drawing generally has mixed reactions ranging from fiery and mysterious emotions all the way to emotions that they have only observed a magical vision. Often this drawing has been called "Mona Lisa of 1890". If you were to look closely at the portrait, you could actually feel the similarity between the weird and secret smile often acting in the Mona Lisa.
Information is scarce on Mrs Merrill and the little we can collect comes from the artists son Oliver. According to younger Delville, Stuart Merrill lived a poet near Delville's residence. The older Delville was intrigued by the beauty shown by the poet's wife and as such depicted her as a character donated with mediumist traits. It is also suggested that his drawing "Medusa" was also a portrayal of Mrs. Merrill. Unfortunately, a little more is known for this lovely lady, because her life seems to be forgotten in the times. But we are not too likely to forget her picture as long as Delville's unique chalk record remains.
An interesting idea is that the image was never owned by the Merrill family, but rather remains in the hands of Delville and his descendants until the late 1960s. It was later acquired by the art museum in Brussels. To be of a fantasy nature I would dare say that Stuart Merrill might never be aware that the painting existed.
When I look at this artwork, I am immediately drawn to the mysterious, hidden, innocent beauty that radiates from the lady in the portrait. The boring, shady background lines define the colors and lines within the foreground. The weak background screens provide an avenue for our imagination to accommodate and allow us to wonder what strange effects can lurk behind the women's external image. The warm mixed colors compliment the recurring but natural buoyancy shown in the drawing. The composition weighs well with the soft texture that gives the picture everywhere.
To judge precisely this art work would not be a difficult or arduous task, for I think it is extremely appealing. From experience, I know that chalk drawings are not a simple achievement at least. It takes talent and native skills to complete a chalk project. I think the artist was not just trying to show a lovely lady in her work, but tried to make a kind of poster to promote his faith in the occult. I know in this attempt he succeeded. If I had the opportunity to buy and own a work of this quality, I would not hesitate at least. It is well composed and created.
