Gorgeous glam gowns at Idan Cohen’s New York Bridal Fashion Week Show for Fall 2017 were seductive, sexy, most for confident brides. The gowns were often highly ornate, with intricate beading and embroidery, some with interesting appliqué details here and there. The natural-looking hairstyles, by Ammon Carver, L’Anza, had waved accents around the face with a few strands flowing freely at the front, hair draped gently over the ears, deconstructed in texture at the back of a low pony caught elegantly at the nape of the neck. Some wore jeweled headbands and tiaras, by Justine M. Couture.  For more amazing bridal gowns and inspiration, click HERE

This beautiful bouffant with a 2016 vibe is “the classic bombshell bouffant with a playful bad girl attitude,” said Ammon Carver, L’Anza, of his Brigitte Bardot-inspired hair at the 5:31 Jerome Presentation for New York Fashion Week Fall 2016. The sexy hair with an edge is full and voluminous, created for the women who dare to wear it.   The long pointy nails, by Rose, Dermelect, had halographic glitter, looking like the night sky. Six colors on top and five on the underside of the nails were used.   For more versions and details of the hair, and the nails, click HERE
