Beautiful Eloho On Her Wedding Day.

One of my December brides - sweet, calm and soft spoken Eloho. I first met her in December 2014 when I was prepping another bride who is her friend, Modupe (see here). Apparently she had just gotten engaged very recently and I remember the excitement from her and her friends. Fast forward one year later and I got the honor of doing her hair too!

She wanted a soft and simple yet elegant look and had decided on something that was side swept with some detail.

We did a few trials and settled on the look we were going for - December 19th and I got to her early as planned, and got to styling. There wasn't much to do particularly as the day before I'd given her an amino acid treatment and her hair was much softer and manageable.

Using some extensions that closely matched her hair, I created two French braids on one side and then tied her hair into a low bun to the side and using the rest of the extensions, created a bit of a flower bun.

I was done by past 8 and her makeup wasn't going to be done for some time yet ( her service was at noon) but I had to leave for work so couldn't take pictures like I wanted. Thankfully, I was able to get some from the make up artiste and the official photographer of the day.

A few days later, I got this message from her and it made me feel that much more appreciated. It's little things like this that make it so worth it!
