Cassandra Came through & D E L I V E R E D!!! In more ways than one, but first story time… (also let me preface this by stating I myself am a hairstylist of 15years, so when it comes to knowing hair industry etiquette & skill, I’m a pro!) So, P...
icture it.. 1 month before your wedding, you have not 1 but 2 trials elsewhere & sadly, it was a disaster. After wasting roughly 6 hours & $300 in trials I was beyond defeated. My biggest concern with wedding day, as if brides don’t have enough to stress about, was my hair!! So being less than 2 weeks out from my wedding, not feeling confident & not having dream wedding hair, you can imagine the pure panic right? Well that is until a heaven sent miracle named Cassandra Broccoli came along. This super talented, booked & busy hair goddess just happened to have a cancellation for my wedding date, this has to be destiny right? So I immediately contact her & she was able to book me last minute. She could have enjoyed her Friday evening off, but no instead she took on a last minute bride without knowing me seeing me or having any idea what she was stepping into. On top of that she had a family emergency in the beginning of the week & still pushed thru & came thru to make miracles happen on my big day! We chatted a bit a few days prior to my day about what I liked and my vision of being “the bride version of Jessica Rabbit”. With no time for a trial, we were both going in blindly. But honey… when I tell you Cassandra did NOT disappoint !
Morning of my wedding, I step outside my hotel room to go get ice, and I see someone walking down the hallway, with a big smile on her face she says excitedly “are you my bride!” I screeched… “are you Cassandra?!” She says “yes!” I give her a huge hug and say I’ll be right back! She heads to my room & I say to my bridesmaid omg the energy I felt exude off of her was so light & happy, I can’t wait for her to do my hair!! I get back into the room and she was so sweet & got right to work, she sat me right in front of the mirror and she even gave me a sneak peak before getting to the front of my hair! It was P E R F E C T I O N! My MOH (also a stylist of 15+ years) says to me how efficient effortless & perfect Cassandra constructed my hair! Everyone in my room could not stop gushing about my hair! There was even another hair stylist that I had for my bridal party who raved to me how Cassandra is the absolute best!! And it wasn’t just lip service either. When I was finished I could have cried, there I was with my gorgeously coiffed hair in awe that it looked so pristine! She also gave me a comb and mini hairspray to keep on me that day. I had makeup next & when I was done I popped my veil in which didn’t even need pinning because Cassandra’s tease she locked in was so strong it held with no issues! My hair was finished by 12:30 my First look was outside on a slightly Windy day at 2:30, we took photos until 4:30 outside, my hair DID NOT MOVE, DID NOT FRIZZ, WAS STUNNING THE WHOLE TIME!!! from my first photo to my last at midnight it was the same as 12:30 when she finished. My curls lasted for the next week! Even brushed out were still gorgeous!
Cassandra’s skill & personality were both impeccable & beautiful. She was so sweet so kind. Her work, unmatched! I can’t thank her enough for making my bridal Jessica Rabbit dreams come true!! She is worth every penny & then some!
