2016 was good to me 😊 as I was lucky to work personally with over 100 brides throughout the year.  Through conversations and trials, we explored thousands of elegantly different looks, and ended up with a wide range of beautiful wedding hairstyles for people’s wedding day.  As I look back on the year, one big theme seemed to transcend the rest….Big Hair.

 

Big hair has been big in the past, remember the 80s?

80s wedding hair

 

 

2016 Brides also went big, bold and beautiful, but with their own modern, elegant wedding hairstyles.  Here are a few of the looks that were particularly popular last year….

 

The Elaborate Structured Updo

Much like Marie Antoinette in the 18th Century, the elaborate structured updo was a big hit in 2016.  #Throwback!  Want to feel like a princess on your wedding day?  Put your hair up with some serious structure…possibly a Tiara 👑 (?) and get married in a stately mansion with extravagant decor and a billowing wedding dress.  And if you’re looking for a stately mansion yourself, have a look at the Metropolitan Room or any of the Top 5 Places I recommend for getting married in New York.  Here are a couple of fabulous looks from 2016 Miss Harlequin Brides to give you a sense of some modern updos.

Anecdote

 

The Hollywood Glam Downdo

Hollywood inspires people in all areas of their life.  Whether it’s Baby from Dirty Dancing coming of age, or any of these Hollywood beauties getting married on film , there is a magic from movies that inspires every one of us.  The Hollywood Glam Downdo is all about the Sophisticated, Modern, Oscar-inspired finger waves which sometimes make you feel like you’re walking the red carpet rather than the down the aisle to your wedding.  It’s not at all traditional, but not everyone wants traditional! Check out these spectacular looking brides on their wedding days!

The Simple Low Bun – with a twist

The simple low bun has always been a hit for an elegant, beautiful look, but this year there was a twist…tonnes of volume in the crown.  Originally made popular by Bridget Bardot in the 50s and 60s, New York City brides took this elegant, romantic, soft and timeless style and made it their own.   The 2016 version had a new character with a flaring crown to create even more volume.  These 2016 Miss Harlequin Brides channeled their modern version of 1950s Bridget Bardot and looked fabulous on their wedding day.

As someone who is half black and half Native American, I have A LOT of hair (down to the middle of my back and very curly). It can seem daunting to even the most skilled hair stylists. Lucy was able to tackle it without a sweat, I was very pleasantly surprised at her skill and confidence.

Loved my wedding hair and make-up!
As someone who is half black and half Native American, I have A LOT of hair (down to the middle of my back and very curly). It can seem daunting to even the most skilled hair stylists. Lucy was able to tackle it without a sweat, I was very pleasantly surprised at her skill and confidence.

She was able to work within our budget and was very easy to work with! Loved her personality and you can tell she loves what she does.

Did I mention I loved my hair!

Only had to do one trial to know she was the one!

Also she was able to do the hair of two of my bridesmaids and my mother. They all loved their hair as well.

For my makeup she was able to look at the picture and perfectly replicate it. Not too much make up or cake-y and not too light.

My hair and airbrush makeup lasted the whole day and several outfit changes: from robe to wedding dress to get away dress to after party.

I really enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone.

I’ve posted some non professional photos (will post professional photos once I receive them).

Thank you Lucy for making me look and feel like a princess on my wedding day!

Hair and make-up turned out beautifully and my bridesmaids and I felt incredible the whole day… all was perfection!

I recently used Miss Harlequin – Wedding Makeup Artistry & Hair Design for my wedding. Lucy and her team were absolutely amazing. I had my consultation a few weeks prior to the wedding so everything on the day of was seamless. They came to our hotel and were ready to get to work right away (on 10+ people nonetheless!). Hair and make-up turned out beautifully and my bridesmaids and I felt incredible the whole day… all was perfection! Lucy is a wonderful person and I was so lucky to have found her for my wedding hair and makeup! Highly recommend.

She really listened to what I envisioned and the style/look I wanted.

Lucy is absolutely amazing!! I was referred to her by my sister in law (who by the way looked so natural and flawless on her wedding day).  She really listened to what I envisioned and the style/look I wanted. I sent her a few pictures and we talked through what I wanted at the trial. She listened to my feedback and noted some of my ideas. I have to say it all came together perfectly on my wedding day. My wedding makeup stayed on all night, and everyone complimented me on my hair. The most important thing for me was to look natural, and she really delivered the classic look I wanted. I already recommended her to my co-worker. The best part is she is super fun to chat with, and has great energy. Hopefully I’ll have another event soon, where I can book her again! 🙂

The photos speak for themselves in beauty, Cati and I had such a fun day.

She is incredibly experienced and definitely has a natural talent and is very quick at her work.

Miss Harlequin – or Lucy as she is also know recently did my wedding makeup and hair. Not that I like singing my own praises but I looked amazing! The make up was absolutely perfect – Lucy actually knew what I wanted before I actually did. I had an awful lot of comments about my hair and make up specifically and that my make up artist had done such a fantastic job. My make up stayed on all day and my hair also stayed put even through lots of sweaty dancing! Needless to say Lucy was incredibly professional, she has an extensive kit with make up for all skin types. She has an excellent rapport and is very calming which is especially helpful for nervous brides. She is incredibly experienced and definitely has a natural talent and is very quick at her work. I would definitely use her again for all future occasions where my make up just isn’t up to scratch and I give her a five out of five every time. She has great energy and is fun to be around – amazing!!

Lucy was my wedding makeup and hair stylist in my wedding day, I found her from Yelp and did a trial with her prior to the wedding. I showed her some pictures that I’d like to have, she used her best judgement and creativity to maximize it! Thanks Lucy for doing such a great job in my most memorable moment in my life, everybody loves my hair and make up that day, I feel I am the princess as well:) Thank you again!

“Lucy is not only a total visionary and can translate exactly what you want to a real product but she’s also cool as hell.”

Lucy is AMAZING!!!! I had a wedding makeup & hair done by an upscale salon that I hated. After reading tons of amazing reviews I knew I had to try Lucy- and she did anything but let me down. Lucy is not only a total visionary and can translate exactly what you want to a real product but she’s also cool as hell. Such a fun personality and when it came to the wedding day (and 12 girls for hair and makeup) she brought a whole crew just as lively and fun as her! My whole party had the best time getting done up and might I add our hair and makeup was FLAWLESS. My hair and makeup lasted 12 full hours to boot!! THANK YOU LUCY!! You rock!

Other things to note: she’s very responsive, extremely organized and very punctual so this is one less thing you have to worry about as a bride trying to juggle all of the planning.

Lucy and one of her amazing colleagues did hair and make up on myself and my bridal party for my wedding and she was amazing.  She really listens to your vision and had amazing suggestions when it came to various looks and most especially hair.   All of the ladies who had services done were thrilled with their final look and everyone went in wildly different directions with what they wanted.   My trial went smoothly and the final look was exactly what I wanted.

A lot of women, especially those that don’t wear much, get very nervous about wedding makeup – listen to Lucy!  Airbrush is amazing!    And your pictures will look so much better if your features are properly defined by a professional – which Lucy most certainly is.

Other things to note:  she’s very responsive, extremely organized and very punctual so this is one less thing you have to worry about as a bride trying to juggle all of the planning.

She also happens to be a sweet, funny, kind and all around terrific person; it is a genuine pleasure to be around her so she adds a lot to the wedding experience.

I’m writing this review from the perspective of a bride but I would absolutely hire her again for any black tie event

Lucy is pure magic!  She did my wedding makeup and hair and I loved how I looked!  No one has ever pulled off my hair and make-up to perfection and I thank you, Lucy for making me look and feel beautiful on my wedding day, even 8 hours later!    She will do exactly what you want adding tips if your unsure.  Lucy is kind, patient and calm, the ideal person you want on your wedding day.  I am a fussy person and never liked my hair or make-up professionally done.  I am blessed to have found Lucy who is so talented in both hair and make-up!  You won’t be disapointed

“She was fabulous – so lovely, so easy to work with, and very responsive.”

Miss Harlequin (Lucy Flint) did my wedding makeup and hair this past May.  She was fabulous – so lovely, so easy to work with, and very responsive. As I was planning my wedding, one thing that I discovered that one of the most important characteristics in a wedding vendor is responsiveness! We communicated via email and she was always quick to get back to me. Her prices were very reasonable. We had a trial several weeks before at her home- I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted, but I knew I wanted something natural in terms of make up, and had no idea what I wanted for hair. But I had a vintage dress, and had an idea in mind for a vintage bird cage veil, and Lucy came up with a style that was perfect. She came to my venue to do my hair and make up for my wedding day, and was on time (early i think!) and prepared. I absolutely loved my wedding look and I got so many compliments on my hair and make up! I highly recommend her!!

Such a fun time doing wedding makeup, working with Melissa and her wonderful wedding party. Cati and I created very individual looks for each of her wedding party, and for the bride herself, a bride who wasn’t scared to wear red lipstick for that true vintage look. Her looks is one of my all time favs.

“Lucy was one of my favorite people that I worked with in my wedding planning process.”


Lucy was one of my favorite people that I worked with in my wedding planning process. She was professional, kind, easygoing, and VERY TALENTED. She is super fast at returning emails and made me feel beautiful and relaxed in my trial and on the day of the wedding. I was surprised at how emotional I was getting ready before my wedding and Lucy was able to keep it light-hearted and efficient. 
She was also amazing with all of my bridesmaids. I have heard horror stories of girls paying a lot of money and hating their hair but this was absolutely not the case for my bridal party. One of my bridemaids texted me the next morning saying that she wasn’t going to take her hair out because she loved it so much. I would recommend Lucy for wedding makeup & hair to anyone.

She’s punctual, thorough, and prepared – she had everything under control.

Lucy did my wedding hairstyle at my January wedding. Working with her was absolutely lovely. She’s punctual, thorough, and prepared – she had everything under control. At the same time, though, she was relaxed, and put everyone else at ease. She was the best combination of being an absolute professional while also feeling like a (very talented) friend who just happens to be making you look gorgeous. I would highly, highly recommend Lucy!

Lucy is super fun, super professional and super English which only serves to adds greater interest to the service!

I was looking for a Hair Stylist and Make Up Artist for my wedding and Lucy from Miss Harlequin was recommended to me through a friend who’s wedding makeup and hair she did last year.

Lucy is super fun, super professional and super English which only serves to adds greater interest to the service!

Lucy made me feel relaxed and pampered and I left to go out not only feeling unbelievably confident but safe in the knowledge I still looked like me… I felt a million dollars only without that price tag!!  Lucy comes Highly Recommended.

Wedding of Marc & Carlie

She was super calm and uber professional. I felt like I was in such safe hands.

Lucy did mine and my Mom’s wedding makeup and she was amazing.

I’ve generally had nightmare experiences getting my make-up professionally done in the past. I’ve felt they never listen to me when I say I want to look natural, not overdone and I end up looking like a drag queen! Not with Lucy. I had never had my make-up airbrushed on before, which was revolutionary. It gave just a very light coverage of foundation – just enough to even out and brighten my complexion but not so much that the real me didn’t show through. Equally, my eye make-up was just enough to complement my complexion and define my eyes without being too much. Lucy really listened to me and recommended eyeshadow shades that suited me perfectly but were still within my comfort zone.

And last, but not least, my hair: It was fun in our trial session to google lots of images of possible styles and get her advice on which would suit me. On the day I was really pleased with how it all came together – she nailed it straight away the hairstyle was exactly how I wanted it.

Lucy was a joy to have there on my wedding day while I was getting ready. She was super calm and uber professional. I felt like I was in such safe hands. Even when my bridesmaids were useless at helping me get into my dress, Lucy came to the rescue! My Mom, who is a tough critic, also felt really confident and comfortable with the way Lucy did her hair and make-up.

I’d recommend her in a heartbeat!
