Bridal Beauty Makeover

One of our very own staffers (she's a soon-to-be bride!) got a makeover by Tom Moschetto for Paul Labrecque Salon and makeup artist Tim Wilkins. The products used to style Janine's hair were Volume Style, Volume Finish, and Curly Finish.

The wedding dress Janine wore is by Legends by Romona Keveza, available at Kleinfeld Bridal, and her earrings are by Elizabeth Showers.
