TIP: The biggest question everyone asks themselves, do you get the dress or the hat first? Answer: It all depends on personal preference, but the trick is, bring either your hat or your dress, whichever you pick out first, with you when trying to pair the latter.

We are so excited to see all of you fabulous fashionistas out there at Opening Day on July 15th!  Until then, stay tuned on our blog, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see all the fashion fun we are getting into to prepare for the big day!

weddingpic6Want your hair to stay all night at the next wedding/event you attend? We have some Savvy Tips for you:

  • up styles, whether it’s braiding, twisting, or knotting, should guarantee your style to last even through your best moves on the dance floor
  • styles hold best on day-old hair so keep in mind, it’s best to wash your hair the day before you get all dolled up to witness those “I Do’s”

Wedding season is upon us and we at Studio Savvy know how crazy the wedding whirlwinds can get but we are here to help! The best way to make things go smoothly on the Big Day is to book ahead. Trials are SO important to reassure the bride, and everyone in her life, that the hair and makeup are exactly as she wants so she can feel like the most beautiful woman in the world when all eyes are on her.  Make sure to book your favorite makeup artist and/or stylist(s) in advance! The Glam Squad at Studio Savvy has everything you could possibly need when it comes to feeling beautiful on your wedding day or at the next big event you attend; and we want to make sure that we can be prepared to make every woman feel beautiful on the Big Day!weddingpic8weddingpic4

Deena & The Glam Squad take FINE Magazine

We are hats over heels for the latest issue of FINE Magazine! Not only did our Master Stylist and Fashion Guru, Deena, sit down for a personal interview, but our whole Studio Savvy team got to glam up the models in the “Front Runner Fashion” spread.

Deena sat down with writer Kelly Flowers to discuss her continuing role as co-director of the annual Opening Day Hats Contest at the Del Mar Racetrack, coming up on the 16th of July. As a lover of all things glamorous, a true fashionista at heart, a creative spirit with a keen eye for color, and of course, an avid member of the community, Deena is undoubtedly the perfect lady to oversee this event.

The contest is one of the most treasured and anticipated summertime traditions in Del Mar and Deena is ready to bring even more excitement and fun into this year’s playful competition. The event normally draws in hundreds of contestants and a huge crowd of anxious onlookers hoping to catch a glimpse of the year’s most wild creation. Whether you’re entering in the contest or just attending Opening Day, Deena has some advice for you: “This is the one day where you don’t want to blend in with the crowd. It’s a great opportunity to have crazy fashion fun and go big… Literally!”

Later in the magazine, Deena and the Glam Squad went down to the Racetrack to beautify the models featured in the segment, Front Runner Fashion. The hair and makeup looks we chose were classic. We didn’t want to overpower the avant-garde nature of the hats, but work with them. Loose curls and side braids complimented the hats and chic summer dresses perfectly—nothing too dressed-up, but manicured enough to match the sophistication of the Track.

As for the fashion, the bolder the better! Carla wore the “Queenie” hat by Christine A. Moore Millinery for Studio Savvy, which brought out the bright colors in her floral dress. April also sported one of our Christine A. Moore Millinery hats, the “Elsa.” The solid white hat with her coral shift dress looked effortlessly chic, especially since each piece had a bit of texture. We also loved some of the two-piece outfits, a welcomed and on-trend substitute for a typical sundress.

We are so thankful to have worked with FINE Magazine on this photo shoot and can’t wait for the glitz and glam of the race season to start! If you still need to pick out that perfect piece for Opening Day, join us at the Fashion Trifecta at the Del Mar Racetrack on Sunday, June 12th, from 12:00-4:00pm. Enter at the Solana Gate on Via De La Valle between Jimmy Durante and Coast Highway. There will be yummy bites and sips and tons of dresses, hats, and accessories to get you ready for the big day. See you there!

XO,

Deena and the Glam Squad
