Today was a very fun day. I got to meet with Hannah to go through a trial run of her hair and makeup. This is not the first time that I have styled her hair, but since her wedding day is in early June, it is a pretty special time.

Back when Hannah was still in high school, I got got to style her hair for the Prom. Now I will be lucky enough to be there when she gets married. Today, Hannah and I discussed a few different options. First she wanted to try wearing her hair all pulled over to the right, and left in loose curls.

After seeing this, we decided to try wearing her hair in an updo. Still set off to the right side, but this time we tried a woven bun.

On the wedding day, Hannah plans to wear not only this white flower, but a veil as well. I’m looking forward to the big day and hanging out with Hannah, her friends and family.

Today I got to spend the morning helping Hadly get ready for her first prom. Her mom Lori sent a few photos to me last week of hair styles that Hadly liked. this morning we sat down and decided that she would wear her hair up in the back, with volume at the crown. She was very sure that she wanted a few braids woven throughout that style.

Hadly’s prom dress was a gorgeous blue color, covered in rhinestones and sequins. For her makeup, she wanted a dramatic look for her eyes and soft pink for her lips.

Overall, we were all more than pleased with how things turned out. Thank you to Hadly for letting me be a part of such a special day.

Just this passed Saturday was Jessica’s wedding day. I got to be there to style her hair, as well as a few others before they would walk down the aisle.

When Jessica and I met back in December for a trial run of her updo, we both really liked the outcome. On the big day, we changed a couple things to allow for my volume and to tighten up the sides a little bit. Overall, the updo that was slightly off to the right turned out quite nice.

Bridesmaid and sister of the bride Emily also wore an updo for the day.

This weekend I traveled to Johnstown, PA to meet with Leah for a trial run of her wedding day hair and makeup. She and I have been talking about her big day since 2012 so I was happy to finally meet her.

In our correspondence, she shared a few photos of hair styles that she liked, as well as a photo of her gorgeous dress. Each of these photos had a vintage feel. So when styling her hair I wanted let the updo have a classic feel with pin curls and soft lines.

I absolutely love the way everything turned out. I look forward to seeing her again on the big day!
