Threatening the beautifully luxurious coiffure estate is the humidity and wind of Florida – the wedding was in fact celebrated in the large seaside residence of the Peltz family. “Nicola has quite wavy hair, and with a certain texture, so to protect it from humidity we asked her to use the Virtue restructuring mask for the whole week”, explains the hair stylist. “One thing that I would like to suggest to all brides is that to have a good final result it is very important to make sure that the hair is super hydrated before the big day arrives”.
In addition to this, it was necessary to prepare the hair with straightening formulas, such as Virtue Healing Oil and Un-Frizz Cream, to seal it before drying. “The secret to a flawless bridal style is to use another heat source after drying your hair,” explains Abergel. “I used a wide-barreled curling iron to get that finish. I ran it over my hair creating little curves, so it looked a little looser.” Meanwhile, Abergel’s assistants were tasked with looking after Nicola’s bridesmaids’ hair. The inspiration for them: “A minimal 90s Kate Moss”.
The new Mrs. Beckham’s wedding hairstyle was supposed to be a resounding success. Abergel has a lot of experience in this field: “I’m used to these great moments – it was the same at the wedding of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel (who got married in Puglia in 2012, ndr) and that of Anne Hathaway “, she reveals. The key to getting the right bridal look?” Don’t stray too far from what you are, it’s important that the hair represents the essence of the person. “
Chanel make-up artist Kate Lee took inspiration from Nicola’s natural beauty and tried to enhance it with makeup. “We decided for a very fresh and natural look, just hinted at, but with some details that would stand out through the veil”, she tells Vogue. “The intention was to emphasize its natural characteristics, adding modern and not too traditional elements”. One of the mak-up artist’s favorite products is Chanel’s Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick in Pearlescent, which gives the skin a dewy sheen.
