I’ve worked together with Carly and Karla for five photo shoots now and I continue to be amazed by their talent, their attention to detail and their vision. Carly is my hair stylist and has brought me through blonde, pink, and white hair, lovingly styling my pixie cuts, my shoulder-length hair and my bobs, and even shaving my head one summer when I just wanted to be dramatic. You can find Carly at John’s Hair Designers in Winnipeg, MB. Karla is magic. Not only is her work as a makeup artist impeccably gorgeous, but she is an overall stunning human soul. Hire. Her. You won’t be disappointed.
Hair for Your Geek Wedding You don’t need to go over the top fantastical when it comes to incorporating a theme into wedding hair. Add some coloured extensions or imitate the shape of your favourite hero’s hair-do! For our Thanos bride, Melanie, Carly added purple extensions to her up-do to represent the character’s colouring, and complementing a more regal and elegant look. Carly also dreamed up and styled our Captain Marvel bride with a faux-hawk, imitating Carol Danver’s look when she wears the Cree helmet that is a part of her uniform.
Because of the many models needing styling for this Marvel-themed wedding, Carly had some help from Hannah Ducharme and Allison Emberton who, under the direction and vision of Carly, styled a number of the bridesmaids for this shoot.
For weddings and special events, Carly Alary offers on-site hair styling services, with her availability dependant upon the number of participants needing styling.
Makeup for Your Geek Wedding The great thing about incorporating a theme into your wedding day is that you can decide how editorial you want your look to be. You may choose to turn up the dial on your fantasy and go all out with makeup, or you may choose to simply use a character’s colouring in your eyeshadow and lip colour, keeping it bridal but with a bit of a nod to the nerd inside you. Karla chose the latter for our brides and their attendants.
Karla Chin Makeup Artistry offers on-site makeup services for weddings, special events and creative projects.
Anna from The Artist Groupe joined our team to create stunning looks for this bride squad, with epic makeup for each Avenger. With eyes and lips nodding to the characters of Scarlet Witch and Iron Man, Anna's gorgeous work showcased the bold nature of some of favourite Avengers (I love [her work] 3000!).
