For my hair, I knew I wanted to wear it down and curly. Not super curly, nothing too structured. Plus, my hair feather clip would come into play. I took some inspiration photos with me to show my stylist. My stylist is Rachel, at Steele Salon. Rachel and I were very good friends in high school, and up until about a year ago, I still came back to Hershey to see Rachel when I needed a haircut. I wouldn't trust anyone else to do my hair on the most important day of my life! So, based on the photos I took her and what we talked about, here's what she came up with:

You'll see the front-on shot in a second. For my makeup look, I wanted to keep it pretty natural. I don't wear a lot of obvious makeup on a day-to-day basis, and I don't want to totally overdo it on our wedding day so that Matt doesn't even recognize me! My MUA, Sara (also at Steele Salon), asked me about what I wear usually, and also about our wedding colors. Based on what I told her, she used a very subtle powder foundation, a bit of bronzer, and easy on the blush. For my eyes, she did a neutral smokey eye, and used some dark green to play up my eyes and also to tie in with our wedding colors. And for my lips, she used a slightly pinkish gloss. Again, I was really happy with the way everything turned out!

After my hair trial, I went for an hour-long dance lesson with my dad, and then out to a windy dinner at an outdoor restaurant. My hair stood up and my makeup lasted all night! Rachel is going to curl my hair a little bit more on our wedding day, since my appointment is at 9am - she says this way even if the curls fall a bit throughout the day, it'll still look good. That's just one more reason I love Rachel - she's such a little smartie!
