From the Runway: Sorella Spa and Salon

The local hair and makeup team went backstage to assist at a recent Salvatore Ferragamo show, and they brought you this runway (big day?) report as a souvenir.

Is walking down the aisle so different than walking down the runway?

Your hair and makeup have been impeccably done, you’re wearing the latest and greatest—and, let’s face it, totally selling it to the crowd. Okay, so, from there the comparisons are pretty much over, but it’s not a bad way to approach your look. Or your look’s team.

Stylists from Sorella Salon and Spa in Issaquah jetted off to New York City this past June to assist celebrity stylist Oribe with hair and makeup for the Salvatore Ferragamo resort collection for 2012, so, considering the aforementioned comparison, brides to be (and anyone else who sees life as a red carpet ride) would do well to tune into their trend projections and beauty advice.

First, we asked the salon’s Jacquelynn Reasy Woodward to tell us about the experience: "We have assisted Oribe twice before at Paris Fashion Week; he asked us back, along with three other salons from the US," she says. "It was quite large: 35 looks and 29 models—the show of a lifetime, a small salon from Seattle styling for one of the greatest designers of all time in New York!

And of course we asked Reasy Woodward about the Ferragamo’s classic, iconic fashion-week look, and how and when to rock it in the Northwest.

The stylist also weighs in on what she sees as a "trend toward a simpler, classic bridal updo."
