When it came to deciding what her hair and makeup looked like on her wedding day, Nicola Peltz he turned to the past for inspiration.
The bride, who got married Brooklyn Beckham over the weekend at his father’s $ 75 million estate in Palm Beach, Florida, and his hairdresser and longtime friend Adir Abergel she drew inspiration from ’90s supermodels and French big screen icons when she put together her aesthetic for the big day. Abergel said Rowing“He sent me all these great pictures from before Claudia Schiffer—Including her pics with bangs — so they inspired us, as well as the dress, which is just beautiful.
She went on to explain that the half up half down hairstyle was ideal for anchoring her “incredibly long” and heavy veil and giving her flawlessly structured Valentino gown a slightly undone vibe. In addition to Schiffer, Abergel also drew inspiration from old photos of Brigitte Bardot and her voluminous half ponytails, as well as taking on the clearest and brightest Peltz blonde before the ceremony. He explained: “It was all about keeping his hair beautiful, soft and smooth. He thinks of a luxurious and smooth texture, but with fullness and movement. Abergel has also worked with celebrities such as Jessica Biel And Anne Hathaway on their weddings, noting that the trick to finding the ideal wedding hairstyle is “You don’t want to stray too far from who you are as a person, it’s about elevating your hair and celebrating the essence of who I am.”
The hairstylist said, though, that her vision of perfectly straight locks was nearly put in jeopardy by the heat and humidity of Florida. Mainly because “Nicola actually has quite wavy hair – she has a lot of texture – so to make sure she is protected from moisture I had her use the Virtue Restorative Mask all week,” she revealed. “One thing I would say to all brides is that one of the most important parts of having beautiful hair is making sure she is super hydrated before the big day comes.” To prep her hair, she then used Virtue’s Healing Oil and Un-Frizz Cream before making a “really good vent”. She added: “The secret to perfecting bridal hair is to use another heat source after blow-drying it. I used a large barrel curling iron to give it that high finish. I ran it over my hair and created it. some small folds so that her hair felt a little looser. ” And for her bridesmaids, Peltz was also inspired by one of the greatest faces in fashion, trying to channel “a 90s minimal Kate Moss. “
In terms of makeup, the bride worked with Chanel’s makeup artist Kate Lee who just wanted to enhance Peltz’s natural beauty, not overshadow it. “We decided for a very fresh and natural look, barely there, but with some interesting details that will appear under the veil,” she said. “The intention was to accentuate his natural features by adding some modern and not so traditional details.”
