Special Occasion Hair Styles



Going to a wedding, the wine auction, graduation or a special event? You can never go wrong making a fashion statement as you attend any occasion in our beautiful Napa Valley if you keep it “Napa Chic.”

As a local native to the Napa Valley and working in the beauty industry for 30 years, combining casual and elegance has been my forte.

“Napa Chic” is a combination of a comfortable country style with some city feel for a relaxed, elegant look. Try to coordinate your hairstyle with your outfits accordingly.



Feel like wearing it down? Try a side sweep like my client Helena. Use a volume spray or root lifter and add large curls on the ends.






Summer time in Napa can be warm during the day and cooler at night.

Bangs are in, but keep them light and textured for a simple solution for quick up dos and to keep some softness framing your face. Bang 2015These bangs are perfect if you want that “instant botox look” to cover any lines without cutting your bangs too drastically.

For evening, I do a lot of textured soft curls and gentle up-dos.

Keeping the hair looking romantically casual and fun is what it’s all about for 2015!
