When you think of weddings, you may think of tulle and lace, but now you can create a flowing silk veil with your hair. In the tradition of wearing a beautiful bridalheadpiece, add a touch of elegance and create the same flowing effect with your tresses using George the salon Chicago's new Silk Veil Bridal Blowout. Featuring a Millenium Rose Oil providing the same lightness of a silk veil, check out what makes the new treatment one of a kind:
What makes for the perfect blowout?
A perfect blowout should have body, volume and bounce; there is an almost an airy feel to the hair. Whether it is sleek or has more of a loose wave to it, the end result should always be shiny, healthy and frizz free!
Why the bridal blowout? What makes this different?
Depending on how a bride wishes to wear her hair on her wedding day, a blowout can be the desired end style or the foundation of another look such as an updo. A great blowout, either way, really sets the stage for how your style will look. While creating this service, we decided to look through all of the products our salon carries, picking an item to make this service ideal for a bride-to-be. We enlisted the help of Kérastase Elixir Ultime Beautifying Oil Cream. It is a leave-in treatment which adds radiance and silkiness to all hair types and carries the delicate fragrance of millenium rose. It was perfect.
How did the salon come up with the idea for this technique?
It is a special day and we wanted to create a new service to reflect this. Once we saw this cream wrapped hair in a silk veil sensation, we knew it would be the perfect product for a bridal service. The fact that it also contained millenium rose extract was also a plus. Roses are one of the most iconic flowers at weddings.
What's the key to making the hair silky and soft despite the heat use?
Antioxidant properties in the cream we use protect against environmental aggressors and daily damage. Plus, we will pair this with other products chosen specifically for the client's natural hair type and texture. A heat protectant is always a part of this.
Why Rose Extract?
Hair is left feeling soft and supple with beautiful movement and shine!
How long does the blowout last?
Depending on how often you need to wash your hair, this blowout can last until your next shampoo. Factors like how you sleep, how you wash your face and if you work out are important to consider as well.
Any additional tips and tricks to keep the style looking its best?
As with all blowouts, we encourage a dusting of dry shampoo at your roots to really kickstart the staying power of your style. Also when washing your face or applying face creams and serums, make sure to pull hair up and away to avoid frizzing out the hairline. In this instance, a scrunchie can find a way back into your beauty routine, since you can pull it up loose without the worry of creating big indentations or marks. Shower caps are another must have.
At night, it is also important not to flatten out the style. This blowout is going to be soft and beautifully bouncy. Before bed, sweep tresses up and use large bobby pins to create loosely sculpted pin curls as you sleep. 4-6 sections depending on your length will do the trick. When you release and shake out in the morning, you feel like you just left your stylist's chair.
