I am extremely knowledgable about hair straighteners, hair products, and above all curling irons (nothing beats a Conair 1.5″ barrel. So cheap, yet so amazing!) .

Now do you love short hair for your day to day life, but can’t quite get the idea of yourself as long haired goddess for your wedding day? I hear ya. I felt the same way. So rather than accept my hair reality, I made my bestie go with me to find the perfect EXTENSIONS!! Photo by Heather Waraksa.
