An Indian Princess... Visha

This was one of the most exquisite, lavish and colorful weddings I think I have ever worked on.  The bride Visha was astonishingly gorgeous with her exotic Bollywood/ Egyptian look that we went for.

Visha's hair is just a little over shoulder length so we incorporated human hair wefts into her hair to make it reach right down to her waist.  I did tiny horizontal cornrow plaits in the back of her own hair so I could sew in the Human wefts, then did soft curls all the way down her back.  I parted Visha's hair in the center and fixed her beautiful head adornment to a pin curl near her crown, I then set the top in Hot rollers and back combed to create the hight for the quiff Visha wanted.  The sides were braided on either side and joined together at the back where I attached a gorgeous spray of fresh Orchids.

The makeup was inspired by plenty of exotic Bollywood  pictures that Visha had collected up.  It was all about exotic colorful sexy eyes. "Think the Kardashin's" she told me, so I set about creating the perfect flawless airbrushed skin and exotic eyes that looked like jewels.

We even went as far as to apply the Henna to her hands and help her into her fabulous garment that was encrusted in magnificent crystals. The weight of the skirt alone was possibly nearly as heavy as the petit Indian princess herself.  Then came the bling for every part of Visha's body. Boy do the Indian's know how to look feminine, they run rings around the rest of us, I have never seen so much exquisite jewels and sparkle!!  Even the men of her family looked extrodinarly handsome in there suits encrusted with crystals.  I think Visha's husband to be would have been blown away once seeing his gorgeous bride coming towards him.

Thanks to Visha and her family for letting Ange and I into her world for a glorious taste of how her culture celebrates her special day. Oh and the magnificent food Visha's mum made us.
