Good hair and makeup artists are miracle workers. Create your own special look on your special day with these top tips.

Up or down? Curly or straight? Hopelessly romantic or ultra-chic? The choice is yours. We asked four makeup artists and stylists to transform our model, Danielle Ricci (, who will be representing Katonah in the Miss New York contest in January, into four completely different looks.

Hollywood Glamour

Hair: Vittoria Monterosso at Salon V
Makeup: Valerie Guglielmo, Vis a Vis Artistry

This loose-wave updo evokes movie stars from the past; it’s a sexy look that never goes out of style. “I wanted to give her a 1940s glamour, a pin-up model look, but I added modern touches with lash extensions and glossy lips,” Guglielmo says.

Blushing Bride

Hair: Marisa Palermiti, Salon O
Makeup: Rosemarie Pomilla, NY Prostyle Bridal

Loose waves with accent braiding along with a soft, natural makeup is the recipe for this ethereal, romantic look. “I used warm red browns and taupes on the eyes while using a peachy pink on the cheeks and lips,” Pomilla says. “The matte texture on the skin adds softness to the look while a creamy, non-glossy lipstick adds sophistication.”

Modern Bride

Hair: Philip Faulkner
Makeup: Jay Alvear Static Hair Salon

“Our look is a combination of playful and glamourous,” says Matthew Yasgur, co-owner of Static. “Her hair is matte-finished ‘controlled chaos’ and her makeup is futuristic and shimmery. Our goal was to achieve the perfect blend of modern, yet sultry and alluring.”

Cutting Edge

Hair: Agata Young and Sandra Siquenza
Makeup: Agata Young Paulo’s Atelier Hair Salon

“Creating a dramatic look is challenging, as it must be classy and current, yet be something the bride will be happy with in years to come,” Siquenza says.”Our model’s strong features and luxurious hair made for a rare creative freedom for both of us,” Young says. “Our look features big, dramatic curls with a whimsical fan of strands to define and anchor the style.”
