Mooi – Sternau Wedding

We recently had the pleasure of styling Allison Mooi of Allison Kate Events.

Allison has a rosy nude lip and smoky eye. Her half up, half down hair style is romantic with full detailed curls and perfectly placed veil.

Allison is a professional wedding coordinator, so she knew what to look for when choosing a salon.  She chose The Mane Attraction Hair Studio, Boutique, and Spa in Collinsville for her wedding day knowing the various awards we have received including “The Knot” Best of Weddings and the Vendors Choice through the Perfect Wedding Guide. To begin her look, we used Aquage Beyond Body to help set her curls.  Her hair was then halfway pinned up with plenty of volume to the crown area and a swoop of bangs.  Allison’s makeup look was done by using the flawless Temptu airbrush makeup.  A light brown smokey eye was applied along with Rosey Rouge, a natural pink shade of lip color, to create an elegant look for her special day.

How one wedding led to a great new opportunity

 The Mane Attraction is now the Proud Salon and Spa Provider of the St. Louis Rams Cheerleaders!! We are so excited to be given this opportunity! 

Many thanks to the Rouland wedding party in 2013!!! A member of this party was affiliated with the St. Louis Rams Cheerleaders and was impressed with the teamwork at The Mane Attraction as well as the quality of our services .  We have since been invited to style the St. Louis Rams Cheerleaders’ hair prior to home games. Watch the cheerleaders in action at all home games and see our work!! You can also listen to ESPN Radio FM 101.1 to hear special deals just for Rams fans!

Fun note: We use Aquage styling products on the cheerleaders’ hair.  These products can be purchased at our salon in Collinsville.
