Lindsay Griffin Boston Hairstylist + Co | Self Tanners for Summer Skin

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Skin care is next to self care and although that dosage of Vitamin D is important, we know that the longterm effects of the sun are too damaging to risk. But we always desire that sunkissed glow! Here’s our top picks for sunless tanners and the review on why we love them!

L'oreal sublime glow target.com

Keri loves L’Oreal Sublime Glow – it doesn’t streak like some lotions do so you can apply and go on a busy morning. It’s easy to build gradually to achieve the tone that you want! You can find it at Target or any pharmecy.

Lindsay‘s pick – Tan Towels are a sunless tan essential. You don’t need those complicated gloves or additional products. Just wipe and wait for that color to work into your skin! They come in different skin tone options for everyone. Ulta carries them or you can purchase directly from the Tan Towel website.

Annie suggests French Girl’s bronzing oil. This isn’t a tanner per se, but on fair skin it tints just slightly and on darker skin tones it shows off that pretty shimmer that you have to have on a summer day. You can use it to give your collar bone, and arms or legs a little contour too! You can purchase at Follain or directly from the French Girl Organics site.

 

Boston Wedding | Four Seasons Hotel

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

One of Boston’s top wedding photographers, Channing Johnson, of Channing Johnson photography shoots at the Four Seasons. Why I love Channing’s work is for its documentary style. He can find the perfect balance of photographing of bride, and incorporating the natural light. You can see his wedding photography portfolio by clicking here. He not only shoots in Boston, but everywhere from Mexico, to Colorado, to Arkansas, and many more. His work is truly genius!!

Located in Boston’s Back Bay, The Four Seasons Hotel is one of Boston’s top wedding venues, as well as one of my favorites! The hotel has a great bridal suite, with huge windows. All the natural light pouring in is perfect for your makeup artist!  Also, if you are planning “first look” photos, the Four Seasons is close to Newbury Street as well as the Boston Commons. One cool thing about the ballroom is the old-world Boston feel you get when you walk in.

Some words, from Channing himself:

Why are Four Season weddings more unique in your opinion?

The Four Seasons nods to the Boston hotels that embrace the city’s history while still feeling contemporary and elegant. The location to the Common and Gardens plays a roll in that.

What is your favorite thing about photographing the Four Seasons?

My favorite part of photographing at the Four Seasons is their big windows through out. It makes for interesting light to photograph.

What do you bring to wedding photography?

I have no preconceived ideas when I go to a wedding. I’m not looking for wedding photos as much as I’m looking for interesting pictures at a wedding.

How would describe your style of photography?

I consider myself a documentary photographer. Outside the designated formal pictures I don’t direct, prod, or suggest people do things for me to photograph. Reality is always better than anything my mind can come up with. In addition to the photographs any wedding photographer will take, I look for the in between moments that hopefully make people pause and hopefully trigger their own memories of that day.

Here are some of Channing’s photos from one of his Four Seasons weddings.

The retro side-swept waves hairstyle was all the rage this year but it may be over by the time you walk down the aisle. This 70’s inspired do is stunning yet it is not the most timeless style for your wedding day.

Elle

Perfect for my brides with shorter hair, a low chignon. Simple and timeless.

Hatunot

Fall fashion week was all about the low ponytail. It could possibly be 2012’s top choice for wedding hairstyles. You can change it up with a bun, create some volume on top, or simply add some extensions.

The classic French twist. This popular 2011 hairstyle will be around for decades to come. It’s also great for showing off the wedding dress back.

Boston Wedding Venues | Getting Ready at Boston Hotels

Friday, November 11th, 2011

I met with one of my out-of-town brides last Thursday, and she asked me for Boston hotel recommendations for getting ready. I took this as an opportunity to write a post about best Boston hotels and the impact they have on your special day.

Space and natural lighting are key! Booking a suite, or a room that has great, large windows and spacious enough to accomodate you and your bridal party comfortably. Also, your Boston photographer will appreciate the natural lighting and it will help them really bring out your natural beauty and provide great options for those creative shots.

Another reason to maybe think about your getting ready hotel is because a wonderful lobby or restaurant can also serve as a nice location backup, especially if it turns out to be a rainy day!

Here are a few of my favorite Boston Hotels and suites for getting ready!

The Liberty Hotel 215 Charles st. Boston 617.224.4000

The Liberty Hotel offers large, luxurious rooms and suites with huge windows, offering loads of natural light. This hotel also serves as the perfect backdrop for interesting photos pre-wedding!
