BHLDN’s “Before I Do” Hair & Makeup How-To Video

BHLDN, the much-beloved, Philly-based bridal sister brand of Anthro, recently put together a video filled with ideas for hair and makeup that we think is pretty awesome.

It’s a time-lapsed thing—it literally takes you from hair dryer to aisle-ready—that shows four distinctly different looks: the Romantic, the Lady, the Boheme, and the Muse. And if you’re anything like us, and whenever you see something like this, you think, “Well gosh that’s pretty, but there’s not a chance in h-e-double-hockey-sticks I’d ever be able to do that myself,” they’ve also very nicely provided pretty detailed step-by-step instructions for the looks, including specific product recommendations, which you can prop up in front of the mirror while you toil away, or, you know, pass them on to your Big Day hair and makeup professionals.

The video was actually shot by Philadelphia Wedding‘s good buddy, Philly photog Trevor Dixon, who lends his awesomeness to every single issue we put out. We’ve most recently shared the gorg summer gowns he shot for us at Longwood Gardens, and we’ll be posting more of his work for us very soon.

Which one of these looks do you dig for your walk down the aisle?
