Bridal party members are some of the most fun and loving people that I get to meet while styling wedding hair. It is so fun to spend the day with a group of people that are so happy to seen their mutual friend get married.

Here I will share a few highlights of some of the bridal parties I was lucky to spend time with in 2016.

When Karley got married in May, her bridal party were each looking for a style that left hair down in super soft curls. Super cute with their dresses that day!


Another group of girls that I loved were Ashley’s bridesmaids in October. These girls were so much fun to hang out with. They all had beautiful style and they were super chill throughout the whole day!



I love when a bride knows how to relax on her wedding day and really spend time with her close friends. When Laura got married in May, it was super hot. There also may or may not have been an AC issue causing it to feel even more warm as she and her bridal party got ready on her wedding day. Rather than freak out, my friend Laura made light of everything and had a blast with her friends. I loved spending time with them all!


Another group that I loved spending time with was Andrea and her bridesmaids. These girls really loved their friend and bride to be. So much love! Plus getting to see her family was a treat. Andrea’s mom is easily the sweetest mom ever.


In July, Kailyn got married! My favorite part of her day was seeing how different each bridesmaid chose a completely different style. Even though they were different, they totally complemented  the entire wedding party look.


I don’t have group shots of each and every bridesmaid and maid of honor, but I do want to share with you a few more snap shots of some bridesmaid updos from this year!

It’s not secret that I love an updo, but I do love the challenge of finding new ways to do a half up style, or to create curls that are dramatic and beautiful!


As you can see, I have gotten to meet some amazing and beautiful ladies this year. Each one of them are a best friend, a sister, a cousin, a college roommate, or maybe a sister-in-law to be. I’m so happy to have met each one of them!

Priya’s Big Day!

Today I got to spend the day with beautiful bride Priya.

Last she and I met was back in May during the trial run of her hair and makeup. We discussed two different hair styles. One to be worn for the first half of the day while wearing her Sari and another when she changed into an American style wedding gown.

The first style for today was for her traditional Hindu ceremony and she would need a center part for her Tikka. Then I created a bun in the center back. At the base of her hair I weaved a mass of curls. To finish the look I used two different ropes of flowers and wrapped them through the hair.


I also got the pleasure of styling for couple of Priya’s relatives today also. Sangeetha, her cousin from Delaware, wanted to leave her hair down in long wavy curls. I pulled one side back slightly and made a little twist.


Next was another cousin, Rupa. She decided to wear all of her long thick hair up and to the side. I also braided one side of her hair over to the updo.


The sister of the groom Ariel, was also to be styled today. She wears her her in a shorter bob-like style. So I curled all of the hair with a large iron and then wrapped the curls around each other. Pinning them togetherat the back of her head to make at up do.


For the reception, Priya changed into her American style dress. I changed her hair into a side parted updo. Pulled all of her hair to the right, twisting and weaving it creating a textured look. Finishing the style with a large ivory flower.


It was a really beautiful, busy day and I am glad to have been a part of it. Congratulations to Jeremy and Priya! thank you again for letting me be a small part of your big day!

Congratulations Priya!

I am pumped to announce that in August I get to be a part of Priya’s Pittsburgh wedding!

Priya is having a traditional Hindu ceremony in the morning and will be changing her look completely for the reception later that evening in the South Side. I am looking forward to seeing the looks that she is thinking about and also styling for her mother and soon to be sister-in-law.

Congratulations once again to Priya and thanks for letting me be a part of the day!
