Something Blue: Casey & Gabe’s Wedding
We had the honor of being a part of Casey’s big day with Bluebird Stylists Danica Schaefer and Brit Tarr doing hair and makeup for these lovely ladies… Casey took a few minutes to chat to us about her special day, which was held at the Flying Caballos Ranch, in San Luis Obispo.

Bb. What was your favorite moment of the day?
The ceremony was really special – it was very meaningful to say the vows we wrote in front of all our family and friends. We had an awesome dance party later in the night, and then after most people left we stayed up and sat around the fire pit with friends talking for hours.
Bb. What was your style inspiration?
Our venue and the wedding overall was very rustic and relaxed, so we wanted the style to be similar. I wanted to look a little fancier than usual, but still like me. It was a super windy day, so I was glad to have my hair in a beautiful, natural looking updo (and it stayed put all day and night!).
Bb. How was your experience with Bluebird Salon?
Working with the salon was fantastic, from my trial and initial consultation to the day of the wedding. Danica was so receptive to my ideas and the final look was exactly what I wanted! Getting beautified by Danica and Brit the morning of the wedding with my bridesmaids, mom, and mother-in-law was so much fun and a totally relaxing experience!
Bb. What advice do you have for brides planning their special day?
It can definitely be a stressful time, so try not to let yourself get overwhelmed, but if you do, that’s ok and totally normal! I definitely had my fair share of planning-related meltdowns : )
On the day of the wedding, try and let go of any last minute problems or
frustrations, because all that matters is you and your new husband/wife, and being surrounded by the people you love the most.

We thought this this was a fun style inspiration from Bumble and bumble stylist Sabrina Michals to go with THE POLISHED TWO STEP Set (Left). We’ll do the other set in a future post if you prefer Tousled to Polished looks. This Two Step includes Straight Blow Dry and Thickening Hairspray and makes party-ready hair easy.
“These products are incredibly user-friendly,” says Bumble and bumble Editorial Stylist Sabrina Michals. “Straight Blow Dry defrizzes and makes way for long-lasting styles, and Thickening Hairspray is my go-to, whether lightly sprayed or layered on.”
Start with the spray on damp hair at the roots and apply the styling balm from the middle to ends. Here, Michals gives some tips on what to do next. (Check out the cute pics top right!)
THE BUMP: Blow-dry, then backcomb and smooth with a large detangling brush “This is a classic look made new,” says Michals. “The Bb. Thickening spray creates structure so the backcombing stays and Bb. Straight Blow Dry lets you wear it for two more days.”
THE SWOOP: Part hair with the same flat brush and blow-dry to one side. This “soft and effortless” style is best kept polished and sleek, Michals says. Worried about hat hair with such a strong side part? “Add Bb Dry Spun Finish to the roots where your hair is flattened by your hat.”
THE FLIP: Blow-dry with a large round brush away from the face. “For a holiday party, try leaving the flip in front and bringing the hair to the side, securing in a low ponytail or braid,” says Michals. “Adding some Bb Spray de Mode will up the look’s staying power.”
Here she is, meet Hilary Torres a recent addition to the Bluebird family! Hilary has been doing hair for four years and is excited to be at Bluebird now- she enjoys being in our creative and diverse environment. Hilary’s personal edgy style is driven by the desire for people to be able to be themselves and redefine definitions of normal. But don’t worry, she won’t give you an edgy ‘do’ unless you want one.. What Hilary is really all about is conversation and getting people’s hair close as physically possible to what they really want. She enjoys the challenge of really listening to people and helping them create the look they are trying to achieve. Although she likes all the elements of doing hair, her favourite aspects are coloring and doing extensions.
If you’re looking for a new stylist or just want to try something different, come see Hilary on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Saturdays.
