Hairstyles with a bow hair clip

16 April 2017
/ / /

I always encourage brides to choose wedding hair accessories that are easy to wear after the big day, whether it’s for them, for their bridesmaids or other members of the bridal party. I find that wearing again a wedding hair accessory in everyday life is a great way to remember this special day, in addition to feeling gorgeous of course!

If you’re not used to wear hair accessories however, you may be at loss with ideas on how to style your hair. So here are some hairstyle ideas on how to wear a wedding hair accessory after the wedding day!

 

The wedding hair accessory: our Clara bow hair clip

A perfect headpiece for the bride, but also for the bridesmaids, the flower girl and even for the mother of the bride. In fact, not long ago, we suggested this accessory for your bridesmaids if you’re wearing a headpiece with a bow, like your Chantal birdcage veil for example. (Click here to see The article)

Here are different ways to wear your Clara bow hair clip after the wedding day!

 

Under a bun

Every women knows the trick. You’re having a bad hair day? Didn’t have time to wash your hair? Style it in a bun and off you go! To give a chic and elegant twist to your hairstyle, just slip our Clara hair clip under the bun, on the back of the head, and voilà!

Idea: If you very skilled at styling your own hair, you can make a braid that starts from the neck to your bun.

With a braid

Braids are very trendy at the moment, both as a wedding hairstyle and in everyday life. (Click here to read about 2017 wedding hairstyle trends) Add a touch of originality and fun to your hairstyle by adding your Clara hair clip!

On the side of the head

Most of us like to let our hair down and loose, but nobody likes when hair falls in our eyes or our face. Prevent this by fixing the hair around your face with hair pins, then add the Clara hair piece on the side to complete your look. The result? You will look both relaxed and stylish!

Idea: Use your curling iron to add some waves in your hair!

Half-up, Half-down

A simple and easy-to-make hairstyle, having your hair half-up andhalf-down is great to let your hair loose but without it changing constantly. Hide your hair band under your Clara hair clip for a neat and chic but also casual look!

Fashion hair accessories at the Morrin Center

7 November 2016
/ / /

Yesterday we made the photoshoot for Capelio’s next fashion collection!

To organize a photoshoot for a new collection is always tedious: you want to surround yourself with the best people who understand your vision and who you can trust, you want to create an atmosphere that reflects the artistic direction of the collection and of course, you want to create breathtaking  photos that will inspire your clients. The process often involves many questiones you ask yourself, with a lot of stress and emotions, especially when you’re a perfectionist. In fact, a designer recently told me that just before her own photoshoot for her new collection, she felt none of her clothes were up to what she had envisonned because of the stress. So it’s not just me then!

But in the end everything went well, largely thanks to the talented people involved who all did a masterful job. So it’s really important for me to thank them properly here :

Angela Baughman and Olivia Eadie of Castle Coiffure;

Simon Trudeau, filmmaker;

Yvon Latulippe, photographer;

Camille Lavoie, makeup;

The models Audrey, Rebekah, Emilie and Charo;

Manon Fortin of the Morrin Center;

And finally Sonia Plourde, designer, for lending us her amazing clothes!

I thank them all from the heart for their incredible commitment, their immense talent and their great cherfulness! Not only did we all worked together to make beautiful photos, the day was also incredibly fun!

The wait until May 2017, when the collection will be launched, will be difficult… But you’ll get a chance to see few previews here and there on our Facebook page, as well as a special Instagram account created especially for the collection : @murdermysterycollection Make sure you also subscribed to our newsletter so you don’t miss anything :

Black birdcage veil and feathers hair piece

1 October 2016
/ / /

Even with wedding season stretching later and later in the year, autumn often means the start of the creative process for the next collection of wedding hair accessories, as well as our limited-edition special collections, like the Butterfly Effect this year and the Pin-Up collection before that. Of course, the creative process never really stop : we’re always picking up new ideas, listenning to our customers’ desires and needs, getting inspired by materials, pictures, movies and the like.

Autumn is when you take it all in, start playing with the materials to do what will become eventually the samples of the next wedding and fashion accessories collections, plan the photoshoot and all the communication tools. During this creative process, sometimes there are accessories that won’t make the final cut even if they’re beautiful and we love them, because sometimes the material is in short supply, we already have similar pieces in the collections, etc.

While we were working on the next limited-edition fashion collection, to be launched in May 2017, we created a beautiful black birdcage veil with feathers on a hair clip. While we do love it and it would work well with the follow-up collection to The Butterfly Effect, unfortunately because of the material used we couldn’t make more than one piece. Look at this beauty :

But good news : it is now available in our “one of a kind” section on Etsy! Like the summer/autumn flower crown with red flowers, you can get it now and you will be the only one in the world to own this beautiful creation!

Its classy look means you can wear it to many events with elegance and style. Get it quick : not only there are only one available, but this bircage veil is perfect for a Halloween party!

Anna and Howard’s wedding

21 August 2016
/ / /

Meet your future husband in the Cayman Islands during a short trip: sounds like the script of a Hollywood movie, right? And yet that’s what happened to Anna, a 2016 Capelio bride!

Even crazier? Anna’s journey lasted only 24 hours! Two friends convinced her to go with them, which allowed her to meet Howard, who worked at the hotel where they were staying. Although she thought he had a je-ne-sais-quoi, she didn’t fall in love straight away. Unlike him : for Howard it was love at first sight… when he saw her remove his sunglasses! He could admire her eyes and from that moment, the die has been cast.

Thanks to Anna’s friends, the lovebirds remained in contact when the young woman left to return to Montreal after 24 hours. Quickly the young couple began to communicate every day and after one week, Howard sent plane tickets to Anna so she could join him back when she got few days off work. In fact, whenever she had three or four days off, her boyfriend would send her plane tickets to go back to see him. A few months later, the groom wrote to Anna’s father asking for her hand and two months later, they were engaged!

The proposal took place in the Cayman Islands, of course: the couple were dinig at the Dolve Vita,  an Italian restaurant on the edge of the sea. What a romantic setting!

 

The wedding day

The setting

The wedding took place at the sugar shack Lalande in Montreal. The bride and groom wanted something simple, intimate, with only their relatives and close friends. The couple loves nature and chose on purpose a location that made their guests discover one aspect of Quebec culture, as some were from Switzerland, France, the US and even the Congo! The bride says, “We had a beautiful wedding with our guests who were all incredibly supportive and caring with us and especially who showered us with a lot of love! For this we are extremely grateful.”

The bride getting ready

Anna had a clear idea from the start of the wedding hair accessory she wanted, a flower crown with roses : “The bespoke wreath created specifically for my wedding was above my expectations! Audrey has created exactly what I had in mind!” In fact, we like the result so much that there will be a similar flower crown with white or ivory roses available in the 2017 collection!

The ceremony

The most beautiful moments of the day for Anna? The arrival on the arm of her father when she and her future husband began to cry, chocked with emotions. When her friend Julie-Anne sang during the ceremony. When the two doves were released. And finally, when Cynthia, a friend of the bride, performed after the first dance a song she had written especially for the newlyweds. “It was very moving to receive so much love! “

From a bridal veil to a fashion hair clip

24 July 2016
/ / /

I often suggest to clients to keep their wedding hair accessory and modify it (if necessary) so they can wear it after their big day. As a picture is worth a thousand words, here is an example of a bridal veil made into a fashion hair clip you can wear everyday!

For this example, we took our Bloom veil for the bride, with handmade flowers and petals. By simply cutting the veil, the headpiece becomes a hair accessory perfect to wear to go to work or for a special occasion:

Beautiful, isn’t it? This is a great way to not only reuse your wedding accessories but also so you can remember one of the best days of your life!

Vintage-inspired jewel headpiece with birdcage veil

10 July 2016
/ / /

Often, a bespoke wedding veil or bridal headpiece created as a custom order for a bride might become part of our  regular collection of wedding hair accessories. However, sometimes it’s not possible, even when the bridal headdress is very pretty and brings a lot of positive feedback on our social medias. This was the case of the bespoke birdacge veil with a headpiece of feathers and a jewel piece on a hair clip, crafted for the lovely Esmeralda few years ago before her elopement. To refresh your memory, here are two pictures of the stunning bride wearing her bespoke Capelio headpiece on the wedding day:

Since then we have received some enquiries regarding regarding this particular bridcage veil & headpiece, as well as how chic and glamour this wedding accessory was with its touch of vintage. However, to make this hair accessory, we have to take the curly feathers of the Plum Fairy headband, which is less than ideal.

But good news for those who love this bridal birdcage veil: it is now possible to buy one in our Etsy store! There will be only one available and the accessory will probably never be part of our regular collection for the bride, so here’s your chance to get your hands on this superb vintage-inspired birdcage veil for the bride!
