These are just some of my favorite images from the years I have been involved with wedding hair styling. Use them to get ideas for your ‘wedding look’. No matter what your ideas may be we can work together to create the style you have dreamed about for your wedding day.

Laurel, I just spotted this post – thank you! As you know we had so much fun hanging out with you for the day, and the results were amazing with all those braided up-dos. Loved how they all had little contrasts but coordinated perfectly! x
