Carrie Marie absolutely made my Adirondack mountains destination wedding a dream by showing up on location. She styled my hair and makeup, as well as all four bridesmaids and my mother. This was truly exceptional service! During our practice styling appointment she was willing to experiment with a 50's vintage look using false eyelashes and liquid eyeliner and did an exceptional job! She is talented, fast, professional and with modest, affordable rates. Highly recommended!!!

Curling Tips

I curl my hair once or twice a week for a fun, different, pretty look, rather than just wear my hair straight or pulled back. I find it much easier to section my hair when curling.

First I start off with moussed, dry, brushed hair, then leave the bottom two inches of hair down and clip the rest up on top of my head.

Then, I mist hair spray on the hair that is down and part it in the middle and pull the two halves over each shoulder.

Depending on how tight I want the curls will depend on how large or small of chunks that I curl... the tighter the curl, the smaller the chunk of hair.

Once both halves of that bottom section are fully curled, I take down another couple inches of hair, clip the rest up, mist that hair with hair spray, then split in the middle & curl in chunks, as I did with the lower section.


I repeat that same process a couple more times until all of my hair is curled. I then tousle the curls around and break some up a bit with my fingers, and spray another mist of hairspray to give it extra holding power! :)
