LLW // Before + Afters // Wedding Edition

Happy Lock Love Wednesday! I started LLW to keep this hairstylist accountable. It is so easy to get in a hair rut and not style my own hair! I have fun sharing with you anything Hair related! Today, is Before + After day! Join with me below and link up and show off your styling techniques or beautiful hair! Follow me on Instagram @ talahairlife #locklovewed and #locklovewednesday 

In the summer months, I typically air dry my hair everytime I wash it and go with a quick 5 min. style. I love twisting it back to get it off my face and give it a little style! 


 Alex had gotten an all over tint months back and wanted something bright! I colored in lighter blonde tones and trimmed up her ends! She looks gorgeous!

Bri was ready for a drastic inverted bob! I love this look on her! We colored in 3 shades to add depth and dimension! 

Lindsay is a fellow hairstylist buddy of mine! She chopped her locks off back in May and was ready for a drastic color change. I colored it all over with a high lift bleach and toned it with a ash! I cut her hair with a undercut and "funked" it up a bit! She is a babe!

 Alison has amazing hair that is also stubborn! She was blonde for a good year and we have been migrating over to the red/brown family again. I colored her hair with caramel and auburn foils and painted in between with a rich brown copper! I LOVE IT! She wants to rock long Victoria Secret hair……..we are the road for that ;) 

I forgot to get a before of Lauren's dry hair. She just got her first teaching position and wanted a fresh look for Fall. I cut her hair up 3" + and it looks lovely! She had me ombre it in the Spring, and we wanted to still have enough length to rock the color a few more months!

Kim has amazing low maintenance hair! She comes in every 6 months and we wanted to bring up her foils a bit. I used two shades of blonde/caramel and painted it in at different heights! I cut her hair to be a long bob! She is smokin'!
 It is back-to-school season at Tala! Love Lucas and Jonas' cuts! CUTIE-PIES.

 Sarah has amazing hair! I freshened up her base with a rich dark brown and brightened up her ombre! She looks amazing! 
Jessica is getting married next week and wanted to do a rich all over brown! She has amazing shiny hair to work with! I love how full her hair looks now! She is going to be a stunning bride!

(Mother of the Groom)

I had fun with this bridal party for many reasons! 
1. They are my buddies
2. They have amazing hair! 
3. I love braids and baby's breath!

Here is the bride before I put baby's breath in! I barely curled her hair, I went with her natural wave/body. I used fishtail braids and regular braids in her style! She looked soooo beautiful! 

 Happy LLW!!!!!

I started Lock Lock Wednesday to get myself motivated to style my hair everyday. It is so easy, for even hair stylists to get in a rut with their hair. I am hoping to inspire you along the way with simple and fun techniques to help you look fabulous! Join me along the way. It will be fun! All you have to do is take snapshots of your hair during the week and link up with me below!  This week I am sharing with you a plethora of sorts, of pretty things. Hair and Beauty.

 It has been a busy week at Tala! I had the lovely opportunity to head up to the beautiful city of Stillwater (Eastern suburb of St. Paul) for one of my client's wedding this past weekend. I got to style hair and attend the beautiful wedding! 

Here are the gorgeous bridesmaids and bride. I love their dresses (mod cloth) and the floral arrangements. They look stunning! Taylor, the bride, styled her own hair, wanting it to be romantic and  down. I love the overall look!

Here are some close ups of the styles.

On Kayla, we used a side braid on the right and some fun knots on the left. Her hair was should length so it was fun to funk it up a touch.

Karly (above) had tons of hair that hit the lower part of her back. So, I literally took the bottom half of her hair and made two braids and put them in a bun to hide hair that was un-needed. I twisted the top sections back in curls to avoid a part and give it lots of volume.

Dude, have you tried hair chalk? It is great for all ages! I took this selfie in the car of mine. I rocked it for the wedding. It washes out and is a fun way to switch up your hair. I use it on kiddos all the time too! (as seen below at Tala) If you want some, let me know, and I will order it for you!

Some Tala- Before/Afters from the week:
 This is a Ombre fix- another hair stylist colored this ombre, and my client wasn't feeling it so we did a very heavy blonde foil with random chocolate brown low lights distributed throughout to balance the retouch and ends. I love how it turned out.
 My girl, Cindy, let me brighten up her hair with copper/gold highlights and a rich copper/auburn tint. I love it!
 I wish I had a before for Danielle! She had a level 7-8 ash blonde and I went through and foils pretty much every strand with a high lift bleach. I did peek-a-boo 5/6 N foils throughout the hair as well. I love how bright it is!
 This was my first time cutting Claire's hair and we rocked out a new/fresh style for fall. She graduated from college in May and is a official grown up now! I love how healthy and sophisticated her hair is now!

I brightened up my friend, Alicia's hair this week too! Lots of bright blondes! I love how the platinum brings out her eyes!

 My friend Jordan hung out with me this week and I whipped in some braids to do a quick and easy style!

My sis, Chelsea, at the rehearsal. i used my curl wand and Awapuhi Hair Spray to curl her hair. I put in a side french braid and clipped in a flower for fun. I love it. 

My sisters and I! I had curl wand curled my hair in the morning and let it do it's thing throughout the day.

I love how my hair turned out!

I curled my mom's hair (left, in purple) with a curl wand too! I back combed it and spray it with a lot of hairspray. I love the groom's hair too.........we had cut it earlier in the week. I wanted something more vintage for him. He looks "dapper"! 

My youngest, Kiyah and I.

My fam!

I heart the bride's hair! She looked beautiful.

Chelsea's veil was made with materials from both our mom's and Curtis' mom veils  The rhinestone clip is my Grandma Cherie's. I adore Chelsea's look. So romantic and gorgeous. I love her hair color too! We colored it with 3 blonde tones- champagne, bleach blonde, and beige blonde. So natural looking.....

Les helped Chels with the viel. The vintage brooches were hers. So cute.....

Cara looked awesome too! I loved her soft updo. It was so pretty on her. My dad is enjoying himself here too.
