Ken Paves Advice

  |   By Stephanie Gray

On Monday I sat down with celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves and was instantly impressed. Known especially for beautifying the tresses of Jessica Simpson, who he lives a block from in L.A., he also styles Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria and Jessica Alba, to name a few.


Ken Paves Advice

Ken was in town to show off his line of clip-in hair extensions, inspired by Jessica Simpson, called “Hairdo.”  He revealed his ideal of beauty isn’t about changing or resisting your looks, rather enhancing what you have. A saying we like to follow here at Weddingbells. His opinion on what a bride should do with her hair for her W-day, which he adamantly believes is a woman’s red-carpet moment, is to work with what you have and ensure your hair complements not overshadows you! He also suggests co-ordinating your hair to your theme, meaning if you’re going for a romantic look then try a half-up, half-down style or try a relaxed curl if you’re going beachy. His extensions come in a variety of colours, textures, lengths and styles—plus the hair will not lose texture. Perfect if you’re planning on tying the knot outdoors or have hair that won’t hold a curl. The parting words Ken left me with was, “Do what feels good. Don’t try to be anyone else. Don’t let anyone define you, define yourself.” It’s a motto I think all of you should apply to your wedding-day beauty look. Visit for more on Hairdo.
