Saratoga Springs Weddings Bridal Hair Style Trends | Upstate NY Photography & Cinema by The Harris Company

With Spring in full swing, let the wedding planning begin!   We’ve been bringing on a some of our favorite creatives to ask them a few questions about what they expect for this upcoming season.  Next up?!  The kind, beautiful, sweet, mega-talented, Cassondra Schauble of Hair by Cassondra.

I was lucky enough to have Cassondra do my wedding do’ way back in 2010!  I never imagined I’d have the pleasure of working WITH her in the wedding industry (and on many creative projects!) but I am so honored to have had that opportunity!  She’s fabulous!


What are some popular styles you’re starting to see brides trending towards?

Romantic Fuller Updos.  Braids are not going away anytime soon, they keep getting more elegant and beautiful. For the brides who want their hair down, I’m seeing soft, romantic retro waves.

Veil Trends? Are Brides Wearing them? Are they doing something different?
Brides are choosing beautiful hair accessories over veils these days.  Traditions are being broken, and deciding what hair accessory a bride will wear can all  depend on the venue.  Flowers and floral Crowns are being worn as well as beautiful Crystal Crowns for more sophistication. Something different, brides are wanting to change the look of their hair after the ceremony into something new for the reception.

How Does the Runway/Fashion World Effect Bridal Trends?
Runway and Fashion are always a huge influence on trends, even in the bridal world.  By the time they hit the mainstream, they usually get a little watered down.  Right now Crystal Crowns are really big on the runway, and these days weddings are really about who you are or what feeling you want to exude.

Any Fading Trends That You are Happy to See Go?
I pretty much love any wedding hair but 2014-2015 almost every bride wanted a side bun with a braid.  It was and is a beautiful look, but as a creative it’s in your nature to want to do something fresh and unique.
What advice would you give a 2017/2018 bride?
When you are headed to your stylist for your preview be sure to try different looks.  I like to book 1 1/2 hours for my bridal previews to allow time to create at least 2 looks for my bride, sometimes 3.  Just like a dress you may be surprised at what you end up loving!

A little more about Cassondra… 
Growing up I was always fascinated with runway, models and fashion.  Becoming a hairdresser was the best way I knew how to get into that world.  Styling to me is like the icing on the cake and anyone who knows me knows I love icing.  What I mean by this is, you can have a great cut and a great color but when your hair is finished with that amazing blow out, full voluminous updo or beautiful beachy waves any woman knows it’s EVERYTHING!  It can make you feel sexy, youthful and romantic.  I remember watching a coworker, at the first salon I worked, take this woman with fine thin hair and dress it into this beautiful french twist, at that moment I knew it was what I wanted to be great at.  It was such an amazing transformation.  What I love the most about my career is the relationships that I get to create; with my clients, my coworkers, other creative artists, I am constantly networking and meeting new people literally around, not just the country, but around the world. Most of all I love that I can continue to push the boundaries of my creative expression without any limits but the limits I put on myself.
