When fashion meets culture, it produces something remarkable.
Today’s bridal beauty look is unique in its way yet a look that we believe Igbo brides-to-be will love to rock. The statement blonde hair styled into a big bun with a smaller bun right in front and the unique attire shows how a bride can completely be distinct in her wedding look.
Here’s what inspired the look according to the makeup artist, Sleek Beauty Shop:
A wedding day is one of the most important and special events in the life of a woman. The traditional attire is one of the highlights of the occasion, it portrays the culture and is really majestic. The Igbo bride should always capture everyone’s attention hence this bridal look.
We were inspired by the epic Igbo traditional attire. How the Igbo brides wore magnificent necklaces, beads, with their hair decorated with coral beads and also adorning their waists with jigida. This kind of attire and costume is going extinct and with this, we hope to remind ourselves of how beautiful, rich and magnificent our traditional attire and costumes are.
