We LOVE Tina Romo’s work, she creates art with every bride’s hair. Her expertise is perfect for your wedding day because you’ll get a gorgeous classic hairstyle that’ll last from your first look to your romance session to your sparkler exit.
I started my career in 2004. Since then, I’ve had my hairstyling work published in over 20 global and regional magazines, had the opportunity to do hair for MTV’s show, Made, directed the Sacramento French Film Festival fashion show two years in a row, styled hair for political campaigns and commercials, styled hair for a feature film, and have a bustling career behind the chair in a Sacramento salon. However, I absolutely love the bridal part of my business the most! I love being able to create the perfect vision for my brides’ hair on her wedding day.
All day hair and makeup for the bride and all her girls
I’ve touched all types and textures of hair, on hundreds of brides and bridesmaids. I stay up on the latest trends and styles, as well as have the foundational skills to be able to recreate the classics. I am constantly honing my skills and taking classes on bridal hair.
Brides are asking for organic texture in their up styles-piecey, flowy, texture that looks soft and natural and not too structured or coiffed.
Down styles are always classic, but brides want soft and touchable styles with some volume.
Half up, half down styles are that perfect happy medium for brides who can’t decide between up or down. Again, these are not the perfectly structured styles of a few years ago, but the more piecey, soft, textured styles with face-framing curls and a little volume.
We are still seeing lots of braids right now. Loose and unstructured keep them looking fresh and modern.
Veils are always in. Most brides who choose to wear a veil will have it in for the ceremony and photos but will take it out for the reception. Hair jewelry and accessories are always in style too. Check out Etsy or bhldn for some gorgeous inspiration.
1. Be sure to get a trim at least 2 weeks before your wedding, but don’t cut too much off! You want healthy, split-end free hair. Have your stylist lightly dust your ends.
2. Don’t do anything drastic or too “trendy” before the wedding. I always tell brides you want to look back at your wedding day photos in 20, 30 or 50 years and look timelessly beautiful, not “so 2019”!
3. Touch up your roots if you have highlights. Or have your stylist give you a fresh gloss or toner.
4. Be sure to properly condition your hair. A deep conditioner once a month leading up to your wedding day is a game-changer!
5. For thick, coarse or dry hair, plan on a fresh blowout the night of your rehearsal dinner, so you can have second-day hair that is clean and smooth on your wedding day. Unless your hair is baby fine and extremely oily, in which case, it’s fine to wash and dry on the morning of your big day.
I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to hire a hairstylist who specializes in bridal hair as opposed to your friend or stylist who doesn’t have experience doing wedding hair. You should have an easy, fun, carefree morning, confident in the fact that you hired an expert. Too often I hear of brides whose friend canceled at the last minute and they are left scrambling before their wedding.
A bridal beauty specialist realizes the importance of timing on your wedding day. I know how long it takes to get all of your ladies looking their best and keeping their hairstyle lasting throughout the entire wedding day. I have the arsenal of products and techniques to keep everyone’s hair looking their best all day.
A bridal hair expert will have touched all types, textures, lengths, densities, and styles of hair, in order to accommodate everyone in the bridal party, from your grandmothers to your flower girls, and everyone in between.
