Weddings are beautiful, magical…and stressful. After fifteen years of working behind the scenes with hundreds of brides planning their special day I can tell you that weddings are a lot of work and full of a lot of unpredictable challenges. In the midst of planning guest lists, table settings, and a menu, hair may seem like a small piece of the puzzle, but hairstyle and makeup are actually two of the most important factors in your special day. Get them right and your gorgeous look will hold through hours of hugging, crying, and dancing. Get them wrong and your tumbling strands and smeared lipstick will make every other problem seem worse.
