I'm so crazy honored to have interviewed by Eugene Weddings Magazine! I was chosen to give my two cents about wedding hair styles and accessories (if you have seen my Instagram you might be able to grasp how obsessed I am with hair garlands!) Having Scottish-highland-worthy red locks myself and an 8th grade best hair award under my belt you could definitely say I'm a 'hair person.'

'Wedding photographer Melissa Jane, of Jane in the Woods Photographie, says that brides used to plan their wedding around their colors, which were sometimes the first detail they decided on. Not anymore. "No one starts talking about their wedding with their colors," she says. Instead, it's now more about what brides want the "feel" of their wedding to be. And more and more, that feel is intensely personal, whether it ends up being classic or country, vintage or vineyard.
For hairstyles brides are increasingly turning to natural materials rather than veils or tiaras, and hairstyles that they do themselves for a fresh look. "I've noticed a lot more people wearing flowers in their hair," Melissa Jane says. "And I hardly ever seen people with their hair done." She says they bride often opt for their hair worn simply down, embellished with nothing more than a few springs of fresh flowers. "They made use flowers that they found or that a boutique made for them, but it's really natural," she says.
The natural feel is often described as a romp through the woods or a stroll through the garden. One of Melissa Jane's favorite bridal headpieces on Instagram is a single fern leaf. She has admired brides with long braided hair adorned in baby's breath or thin wire strung with small pearls. "Nothing too fussy," she says. "It's bohemian, natural, but with a little bit of glam." '
