Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials! Hair extensions are becoming an increasingly popular trend among brides.

I am a certified Great Lengths Stylist with 10+ years experience in the industry. I look forward to the opportunity to enhance your hair and wedding experience!

Meet me at the Georgia Bridal Show this Sunday, September 7, 2014 at the Gwinnett Center.
