Remember my hair style "trial run" disaster? Thankfully, I found out that I needed a different hair stylist for my wedding. I toyed around with the idea of doing it myself...of just wearing it down and curly...or in a curly ponytail. BUT. I wanted something special...and I was advised to wear it up (due to the potentially WINDY conditions on the mountaintop...thank goodness I did because it DID get windy!!)
I went to an adorable little local salon, Ciao Bella...and the stylist, Rischa, opened the salon specially for me (they are typically closed on Sunday!) She loosely pinned back my curls...she made it look effortless...and it was pretty. The curls didn't blow away in the wind...and it stood up pretty well to my dance moves. Couldn't ask for more than that!
