One of this year’s big trends in wedding hair accessories is elegant hair pins. Dainty hair pins and combs look oh-so-elegant when tucked into romantic braids, curls, and chignons. And though the look is very now, the hair pins themselves have a definite vintage feel; think pearls, jewels, Deco styles, and metallic touches. Here are some of our favorite hair pins for brides.

Laid-back, 1970s style is a big trend in weddings right now, so it’s no surprise that effortless hairstyles inspired by the decade are high on brides’ request lists, too. This new take on romantic bohemian style is a little more urban and a little more rough around the edges than popular styles from a few years ago, and it’s the epitome of unfussy chic. Here are our favorite looks from Lover.ly to inspire you.

Vintage Bridal Beauty Inspiration: Lover.ly

We’ve been planning our dream weddings since we were five years old. So it’s no surprise that we can’t get enough of Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration site that lets you search through pics of swoon-worthy gowns, bouquets, and everything else you need for the big day.

If you’re going retro on your wedding day or for your engagement photos, the key to not looking like you’re heading to a costume party (unless, of course, you’re having a costume wedding!) is subtlety. To pull this off, choose one or two vintage-inspired styles to imitate—think a vintage dress and makeup with modern hair—or do the updated 2013 version of your gown, hairstyle, and makeup. Here are four gorgeous vintage beauty looks to get you inspired.

Let’s Talk Beauty with Marina And The Diamonds: Guest Blogger

We’re big fans of this week’s guest blogger, Natalie Higdon. Not only is she a Tennessee resident and a connoisseur of all things Memphis; she’s also a contributor to the Birchbox magazine! (Don’t miss her stellar article on 5 Surprising Facts About SPF). This week, she interviews a hot new singer, reveals her favorite two-in-one products, and schools us on how to trim our own bangs.  

It’s a big year for Welsh singer-songwriter Marina And The Diamonds. The songstress has an amazing new album, Electra Heart, that debuted at No. 1 on the UK charts (her first ever, yay!). She also has a totally new retro-inspired look that I had to learn more about. Read on to find out what inspired Marina’s new look, plus the one beauty product she can’t live without!

How would you describe your look?

Hyper-feminine, 60s/70s, motel kitsch.

Behind the Scenes: Market Publique Video Shoot!

On Friday we had a great video shoot about retro makeup with Pamela Castillo, co-founder of Market Publique, at her Williamsburg showroom. The immensely talented Sokphalla Ban did makeup, and we had the dynamic duo of Greg Beauchamp and Eric Anderson manning the cameras. City Bakery pastries and coffee kept us going, and I even had time to rifle through the racks…scored a pair of silver 80s oxfords. Fun day!
