Poppy And Lavender Colorscape

I found this on The Perfect Palette and fell in love with the dynamic colorscape using poppy and lavender as the base colors. I wouldn't have thought to mix the two as they seem to be strong enough on their own. To me, I would have been afraid to mix them with fear that they'd be competing against each other.
What do you think of this color combination? I think it's striking and absolutely gorgeous! I really wish I was more talented in the realm of picking and merging colors together. I will leave that to the pros as they know a lot more than me.
I think that for these two to work as they do, you need soft, almost translucent shades to back these up. One more bold color, and it could look like an amusement park, which wouldn't be good.
Use this as inspiration for your own wedding plans. This is a great excuse to consider other colors that maybe you've been dreading. You never know what could happen. You may find the perfect wedding colors!

How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
