Happy Monday, readers! This week on Always a Bridesmaid, we’re going super-girly and talking all about style and beauty. (Don’t worry boys—next week will feature a series of advice-based posts all about what girls really want—straight from girls themselves. Want to know where to meet your next date? Where to take her? How to win her over? And what to do when you inevitably mess up for the first time? Next week I’ll bring the full dish for the fellas, all from a range of females--and of course, from the Bridesmaid herself.)
But this week, ladies, let’s talk the fun part of being a girl—dressing up. Which, of course, is not just dedicated to actual dresses, but to makeup and hair and those lovely things most boys don’t get to experience—spas. I’ll be letting you know my go-to spot in this city for affordable spa treatments, and even let you in on the most painless hair removal I have ever experienced.
Plus, I am super-excited about a partnership with a spectacular jewelry line I’ve written about in the past and how their pieces can pair with any wedding event attire you have in your closet. And, most awesomely, I’ll be hosting my first-ever AAB giveaway from JewelMint! Details on how to enter coming soon.
And today, I’m turning to you for advice. This Labor Day weekend, I’ll be in one of my dearest friend’s weddings (my ninth!), and she’s hired a hairstylist who is incredible. I’ve seen the work she’s done on other friends’ bridal parties and I can’t wait to bring her my favorite look and see if she can work her magic on my mop. Below are my top pics—the Lauren Conrad do is a repeat go-to for me, so it’s a definite front-runner. What do you think? I’d love to hear (from guys or gals!)
