Jovana and I hit it off immediately. She was wanting to do a half up half down style or Side-Swept. We ended up doing both at the trial run and she decided she wanted it to be side-swept with a lot of volume and a braid incorporated.
Fun Couple Facts:
Jovana and Tim met in High school and they went on their first date their Junior year. Nothing had come of it, UNTIL - they reunited in their second year of college when Tim transferred to Jovana's College and they had sushi together. They've been together ever since. Isn't that adorable!!
Congrats to Jovana and Tim! Thank you for hiring Sweetly Pinned Hair and Makeup for your bridal parties hair.

Jovana is a sweet as can be, and I was honored she picked me for her bridal hair. It was so much fun and her bridesmaids kept me laughing all day long.
It was a hot and humid July day, but by looking at these pictures, you'd have no idea it was 90 degrees out. They all looked amazing and I'm so excited to share!
I have been waiting anxiously to share Paige and Dakotas wedding pictures! They have such a unique and beautiful style.
While doing Paige's trial run we realized we went to CTC together at the same time, but her Junior year and my Senior year! I knew we'd be a great fit for each other, and after she explained her bohemian style for her outdoor wedding, I could not wait!
Every. single. detail. WAS PERFECT!
Oh, my gosh take a look at the guys suites! Seriously perfect, great job Dakota! Ha!
I received the pictures today and have to blog about it, obviously, every picture is magazine worthy. Check out all of the gorgeousness below.
Thank you Paige, for having Sweetly Pinned Hair and Makeup be apart of your special day. Wishing you both all of the best!

I get asked frequently about what I products I love, what products smell great, and are they worth the money. Because, lets be real, beauty products are EXPENSIVE. I want to help guide you, with some of the best products and give you tips and tricks for using them.
Left to Right
Super Strong Volume Spray Hairspray - This is my go-to for on-location or daily styling. I LOVE the smell, its a super strong hold, leaving the style intact all day long. Every bridesmaid/bride always says "Wow, that smells so good". (Tips and Tricks) after achieving the desired hairstyle, use Kenra 25 Finishing Spray all over it about 6-8" away from the hair.
2. AG Hair Care
OMG(OSH) I have recently discovered this amazing keratin filled serum and its the best thing since sliced bread. I am seriously in love. not only does it make my hair feel amazing and soft. Its repairing my hair and reduces breakage! PRAISE THE LORD! If you are struggling with breakage or damaged hair, try this serum, its definitely a game changer. (Use on clean damp hair, spread on the ends or where any damage is occurring, then proceed to style)
Okay you guys...... Know how some dry shampoos build up on your hair and some leave it feeling gross/filled with powder or perhaps more greasy? I have tried what feels like a hundred dry shampoos and I want something that leaves my hair feeling oil free and smells great. Drum roll please. THIS IS IT! I Love this dry shampoo and it removes all of the oil! WOO HOO! No more washing my hair everyday. (My hair gets super oily) so this is a must have if you have similar issues. (Use on dirty hair preferably once or twice a day and continue for however long you want). I can go up to 3 days without washing my hair.
Anyway, let me know if this information was useful, I love helping people out. There is so many products out there, and no one has time for testing all of them. I find the best and most talked about products and try them, so you don't have to.
Also FYI, I was not given nor paid for to use these products. I bought them with my hard earned, independent, bo$$ babe, monies. ;)
Abigail and I met a few years ago through a mutual friend. So obviously I was super excited when she asked me to do her wedding hair. She is kind and SO Beautiful. I was so excited when I received her images. We did two looks for her wedding hair, as Ohio weather can be some-what unpredictable (giggle) because you never know if its going to be snowing or a warm spring day. Even in the middle of February (ha) So it did end up being quit warm for her wedding with a slight chance of rain.
With all of that in consideration we did her first style down with voluminous curls and the second style up, so she could shake her little tail feather all night long. (Because isn't that what the reception is about, after all)? Her bridesmaids were cheering her on all day long, and SO sweet! Abigail's dress was a show stopper for sure. I was drooling over it, one of my faves to date. The details were phenomenal and their robes were adorable. Basically I loved everything about this wedding and I am just now getting around to blogging it. Take a look for yourselves, you won't be sorry.
Congratulations again Abigail and Danny - Thank you for having Sweetly Pinned Hair be apart of your special day. XOXO
Caitlin and I met a month prior to her December wedding and tried out a few different hairstyles to compliment her dress along with giving her the desired volume she craved. We didn't actually do the style at the trial run that she ended up wearing the day of. She knew what she wanted and was absolutely right! She chose to wear a simple yet gorgeous high bun. It was the perfect style for her big day, and boy, did she rock it! Is there anything better than a high textured bun? I think not. Ha!
Caitlin and her bridal party welcomed me as soon as I walked in, and let me use my creative freedom for their styles. One of the bridesmaids asked me for a "modern beehive" I was in heaven. I love when brides let their bridal party pick individual styles they want to wear, after all they do have to wear it all day! Either way its always fun getting to know a new group and form a bond. I am so grateful the Brauns recommended Caitlin to me. I felt like we were a perfect fit and I am so excited Caitlin and Adams new journey together.
Check out her gorgeous day below:
Congrats to Caitlin and Adam, Thank you for having Sweetly Pinned Hair be a part of your Big day!
Oh, my gosh! Where do I even begin. I met Jenny three weeks before her July wedding. I was so happy when we finally got to meet and to go over the hairstyles she was looking for. Jenny had a lot of hair but it was also super fine. To create a softer look, we did a few different styles to meet what she was looking for. I always tell my brides, a trial run is the best way for me to get to know your hair and to get a feel for the texture of it. I am seriously so glad I met Jenny, She is SUPER sweet, (like called me 3 days before my own wedding to tell me, Thank you and Congrats and words of encouragement) I mean could she be any-more adorable? I love knowing that while this is not only a job, its also creating lasting relationships with my brides.(warning this will be repetitive in my Blogs, because its true). I was over the moon, when I got Jenny's pictures back and saw how gorgeous she looked (not hard to do when you're already drop dead gorgeous) but to see how the entire day transpired and all of the happiness. My Favorite Part of The Day -- Mike sent Jenny and her Bridesmaids Starbucks, while they were getting ready and it was the Sweetest.
I'll just leave the pictures below and let you decide for yourselves, but all I can say is WOW!
Congrats again to Jenny and Mike, thank you for letting Sweetly Pinned Hair, be apart of your special day!
When I first met Tara, I realized we were going to be a perfect fit. Not only is she super gorgeous she's super sweet too. During the bridal preview we discussed the options of what she was wanting and how to accomplish it, specific to her hair texture.
Tara has beautiful long blonde hair, so I knew the wavy retro look she was going for wouldn't be a problem.
The day of the wedding was pure bliss, Elya and I showed up on-site and ready to go at 8:00a.m. and although it was raining, nothing got in the way of great hair and a fun, energetic bridal party.
We created each look based off of the styles each bridesmaids handpicked for themselves, and well, the result, was AMAZING.
I am so honored to share these experiences with my brides and I loved working with this awesome group of girls.
