Special Assignment!

By on March 12, 2017 in About Halo, Bridal, Hair |

“I’ve never felt so confident, so beautiful, and so in love! Yes, with my groom of course, but also with my hair. It was absolutely perfect, and it set the tone for the entire day. I felt invincible! I’ll never forget how incredible my Halo experts were: kind, thoughtful, and skilled beyond belief…   …They made my dream day exactly what you see – a fairytale!” – Corrine Cook, Senior Editor/Director Special Projects, Gentry Magazine.   There’s no place like home!  For us, that’s one of four Halo locations.  But!  It sure is exciting to be called out on location for a Halo House Call – or in this case, a special editorial assignment! One part of the assignment is a Halo specialty – Bridal hair!  But this was for an unusual wedding – one being featured in the Bay Area’s largest lifestyle magazine.  The Halo team transformed the bride on location at San Francisco’s Historic City Hall for her big day, and the feature shot by photographer, Jack Hutcheson, and the Gentry Magazine editorial team. We’re very pleased with the results.  We hope you enjoy this photo album – and please scroll to the end to see the final magazine editorial spreads.   (Hair and make up trial day at Halo Burlingame.) (Yes, that is former Mayor Willie Brown officiating!) Gentry Magazine, February 2017, Bridal Issue.  Thank you to Gentry and your beautiful bride for including us in this magical experience.
