Although everyone makes mistakes, in caring for your hair, catching the most significant of them can prevent long-term damage \u2013 so review this list of the top potential blunders to learn if you\u2019re flirting with coiffure-related disaster:

1. Overusing dry shampoo. Dry shampoo may be your best friend on mornings when you lack time to shower and wash your hair, but take care not to overrely on it. Overusing dry shampoo can clog your pores, making your hair look and feel even greasier than it would have otherwise.

2. Skipping a heat protectant. Skipping a heat protectant can damage your hair considerably. To prevent such damage, apply a heat protectant to your tresses after you wash them, to shield your coiffure from a blow-dryer, straightener or curling iron.

3. Blow-drying hair right after the shower. Avoid blow-drying your hair when it\u2019s still soaking wet. Doing so increases damage through the use of heat on your locks. Instead, let them air-dry as long as possible before blow-drying.

4. Using hot tools at the wrong temperature. If your curling iron or hair straightener has a temperature control, make sure not to set it to the highest level. Instead, set it as low as possible to protect your locks \u2013 excessive heat figuratively fries them.

5. Trimming too infrequently. If you feel your hair isn\u2019t growing, that feeling likely derives from infrequent trims. Keeping hair healthy and growing demands trimming every six to eight weeks.

6. Letting your hair dry too little before using hot tools. Using a hot tool on wet or damp hair numbers among the biggest mistakes you can make. Doing so damages tresses so much because of their extreme fragility \u2013 using a hot tool actually breaks them, causing severe damage.

7. Overwashing. Because washing your hair too often strips it of natural oils, wash it just three times weekly.

If you\u2019re making any of these seven mistakes, don\u2019t fret. Just make sure to eliminate such mistakes from your beauty regimen, and learn from them!

Often, small businesses are born out of necessity \u2013 and such was the case for Kate Bethel, owner of Maven Bath & Candle Co. in Maplewood. \u201cI opened the shop in 2007, after I was laid off from a graphic design job, and it was one of those things where I decided to give it a try for a couple years, and if it didn\u2019t work, no big deal at the time,\u201d Bethel says, recalling her classic lemons-to-lemonade endeavor.

It was a risky time to open a small business, as the country was teetering at the edge of an economic downturn, but Bethel found a way to make it work. She landed a storefront to house what she initially envisioned as a lifestyle boutique in a prime location along Maplewood\u2019s main stretch down Manchester. \u201cAt the time, Maplewood was up-and-coming still \u2013 about 50 percent vacancy on the main strip,\u201d Bethel says. Reasonable rent and proximity to her home put the lifelong Maplewood resident in the right place at the right time.

\"Maven_1.jpg\"

Maven opened as a shop with an eclectic collection of home and body products curated by Bethel, including her own homemade soap. \u201cAt the time, I was making soap out of my basement, kind of as a hobby,\u201d Bethel says, \u201cand I thought, \u2018I\u2019m going to make a little bit of soap, put it on display and see how it goes.\u2019\u201d

Over time, Bethel began to realize her soaps were becoming the main attraction. \u201cThe economy tanked in \u201908, and people were losing their jobs and didn\u2019t have a ton of money to spend on $60 throw pillows, [but] the soaps were going like crazy,\u201d Bethel says. This gave her the idea to move her soap workshop out of her basement and into the shop, which is when the focus began to shift. \u201c[The soaps were] selling like hotcakes. I added candles and, over time, lotion.\u201d Now, Maven sells only bath and body products, as well as candles, all made in-house.

The name of the shop is a derivative of a Hebrew word that means \u201cone who understands\u201d \u2013 basically an expert or connoisseur in a given field. Although Bethel humbly demurred at being considered an expert, she has amassed an impressive bevy of knowledge in the art of crafted body products. Bethel is entirely self-taught, developing her product formulas by way of thorough research and trial and error. \u201cIt took me a better part of a year to get my candle recipe down,\u201d she says. \u201cI would just find recipes in books, try them exactly the way the recipe read, then I\u2019d make a bunch of changes to customize them to my preference.\u201d

Maven specializes in all-natural products, using nonsynthetic, naturally beneficial ingredients such as neem oil, a vegetable oil pressed from the seeds of the tropical neem tree, which has biological antimicrobial properties. The bright and bold colors used are a blend of natural pigments combined with cosmetic-grade mica mineral. She uses a \u201ccold process\u201d for her soaps in which the ingredients are mixed at \u201ccool\u201d temperatures (90 to 110 degrees), and Bethel has found that many of her customers with common skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and dandruff have responded well to Maven products. \u201cWe try to make our products with ingredients that help improve bodily or environmental conditions,\u201d Bethel says.

Bethel\u2019s best-selling product is her wood-wick candles, which are soy-based for a longer, cleaner burn and are available in cheeky fragrance names such as \u201cMy Boyfriend\u2019s T-Shirt,\u201d \u201cLibrary Book\u201d and \u201cDon Draper,\u201d as well as seasonal fragrances for spring and summer like \u201cApril Showers,\u201d \u201cFresh-Cut Grass\u201d and \u201cUnicorn Farts.\u201d

In addition to Bethel\u2019s brightly colored cold-process soaps that started it all, Maven\u2019s body line includes body lotions, such as her popular magnesium oil-infused body lotion line, which has natural calming and pain-relief properties. Maven also carries sugar scrubs, face masks, lip balms, hand and body wash, deodorant, solid perfume, bath salts and \u201cbubble scoops,\u201d Bethel\u2019s ice cream scoop-shaped version of bath bombs.

A line of Skin Sticks includes an under-eye balm, headache and sinus balm, aromatherapy balm and healing pine tar salve, that last of which has natural healing properties for minor skin abrasions. A men\u2019s line of beard oil, shave cream and mustache wax has diversified Bethel\u2019s clientele, and in addition to candles, Maven\u2019s home line also contains a laundry stain stick and room-linen-body fragrance spray. All products are made in-house, using natural ingredients as much as possible, and when not possible, Bethel employs responsible synthetic ingredients.

Innovative products such as solid body lotion and Face Plant, a solid oil-based facial cleanser, have a cult following. Face Plant uses plant-based oils to gently break down dirt and grime without stripping the face of its natural oils, which helps with breakouts or dry skin by allowing the skin to self-regulate its oil production without overcompensating for loss of natural oils through traditional cleansers.

Maven\u2019s solid body lotions, which are an oil-wax blend lotion the consistency of lip balm, are recommended for chronically dry skin. \u201cThey\u2019re great for knees, feet, elbows, hands in the winter \u2013 you can throw them in a gym bag or travel with them,\u201d Bethel says. Maven has partnered with a local OB-GYN who commissions custom-made solid body lotions that he gives to newly pregnant patients to combat dryness and stretch marks. All Maven products can be purchased in-store or online and shipped anywhere within the U.S.

Maven\u2019s most popular service is its soap-making class, which is offered once a week. \u201cWe\u2019re been doing these for a couple years now \u2013 they\u2019re normally sold out [up to] a month ahead of time,\u201d Bethel says. \u201cWe\u2019re adding lotion-making classes because the soap classes have done so well. We can accommodate up to six people, and the student picks out their fragrance and a list of additives such as clay and exfoliants.\u201d Participants make a 22-ounce brick, which they take home to dry and cure before slicing into bars \u2013 each brick makes about six to eight bars.

Over more than a decade in business, Bethel has been proud to support her local economy. Maven has developed partnerships with several locally owned businesses for custom products, including furniture and vintage shops that carry a vintage-inspired line of Maven candles, and two butcher shops that sell Maven soaps. She is currently developing a line of lotions for Clayton\u2019s Glazed-STL nail studio, and Maven\u2019s Maplewood neighbor Kakao Chocolate sells a line of Maven chocolate body products. Bethel\u2019s commitment to her community has certainly paid off. \u201cWe get a lot of repeat customers \u2013 we know people by name,\u201d she says.

Certain makeup techniques can truly transform your face, and highlighting and contouring both fill that bill.

The application of foundation creates a one-dimensional look, making your face appear \u201cflat\u201d \u2013 where highlighting and contouring come into play. Highlighting adds brightness to certain areas, making them stand out. Contouring, oppositely, makes certain other areas (commonly your nose, forehead and cheekbones) recede, providing a more defined and chiseled look.

Highlighting and contouring both create illusion, so here\u2019s a crash course explaining the magic of the two techniques:

Highlighting. Once you\u2019ve applied foundation, start highlighting your face with concealer. To do so, use concealer a couple of shades lighter than your foundation.

First, draw an upside down triangle under your eyes with the concealer to highlight and brighten that area. Next, apply concealer to the center of your forehead, down the bridge of your nose, on your chin and above your lip on the cupid\u2019s bow. Blend all this with a beauty sponge or brush.

Now you\u2019ve added some beautiful dimension to your face by highlighting its central parts. Set these areas with a setting powder, and then you have just one more potential step to go.

That is, if you want to accentuate your face even further, take a shimmery highlighter, and apply it to the very top of your cheekbones with a fan brush. For an even more dramatic look, you also can apply the highlighter to the other parts of your face you highlighted with concealer.

Contouring. With your face beautifully highlighted, add contour to it. For this step, use a matte, cool-toned bronzer. Dip your brush into the bronzer, and start buffing a line into your cheekbone from the middle of your ear down to the midcheek area \u2013 thereby creating the illusion of a lifted cheekbone.

Many women lose definition in their cheeks as they age, so contouring centers on creating an illusion of beautiful, high cheekbones. You also can add bronzing powder to the perimeters of your face, the edges of your forehead and the sides of your nose \u2013 or you can even define your jaw line with the bronzer.

With your contour in place, you can use a warmer bronzer shade to add color to your cheeks, making your look more sun-kissed on top of your gorgeous facial sculpting.

As with any makeup technique, practice makes perfect. Once you get these two techniques down, though, you may wonder how you ever lived without them!

Like large-scale sculptures and skyscrapers, the sky\u2019s the limit for Faith Berger\u2019s fashion.

For more than 25 years, the local art consultant has been as known for her eye for artwork as she is for her signature style: eclectic, envelope-pushing looks. \u201cFashion can be inspired by the architecture of a building or the form of a sculpture,\u201d she notes.

Berger likens picking a perfect piece of art for a space to choosing the right ensemble for an event. And her love affair with the art of fashion began early \u2013 at just 3 years old. \u201cI was instantly attracted to fashion, and I collected all the issues of Vogue,\u201d she says, noting that it all started with iconic Italian designer, Gianni Versace. \u201cMy mom made me leather jumpers and capes \u2026 and taught me to sew in Italian stitching.\u201d

With art and architecture as her fashion muses, Berger has spent decades building a spectacular wardrobe with the best couture clothing and accessories of the \u201970s, \u201980s, \u201990s and 2000s by the industry\u2019s biggest names, including Versace, Alexander McQueen and Chanel, to lesser-known designers, such as New York-based Jonathan Simkhai. \u201cIt\u2019s like what I tell my clients about art: There are so many artists and clothing designers who have so much to say who aren\u2019t on main [street] or at department stores,\u201d Berger notes.

For that reason, Berger seeks out rare fashion finds at unique boutiques, such as Vie in Ladue and SKIF International in downtown St. Louis, as well as follows the fashion lines of up-and-coming local designers, including Wai Ming by St. Louis native Emily Brady Koplar. \u201cI have a fabulous [Wai Ming] jumpsuit that I wore with a leather blazer in the fall, and now I\u2019ll go for its off-the-shoulder look for spring,\u201d Berger says.

To showcase her vast fashion collection, Berger pairs vintage treasures with modern masterpieces. \u201cVelvet is back, so I recently brought out a Versace velvet blazer from a decade ago,\u201d she says. Among the fashionista\u2019s other go-to pieces are an Alexander McQueen peplum blazer, a Jonathan Simkhai fitted dress, a Proenza Schouler contemporary handbag and a SKIF International knit sweater. To complete her head-to-toe look, Berger loves slipping on a pair of pumps from Valentino, Manolo Blahnik, Balenciaga or Sergio Rossi.

Berger believes women should dress for their personalities and bodies. \u201cMost people really know what works for them,\u201d she explains. \u201cSometimes it can feel redundant, so you can reinterpret it \u2013 add jewelry or a beret, add a red shoe to an outfit, or a bootie to a midi-skirt.\u201d And whatever your style, she says the secret to any look is immaculate tailoring for the perfect fit.

St. Louisans can catch Berger and her fabulous fashion sense around town at art and fashion shows and charity galas.

The idea for Walt & Finn came to Ely Thurmond like a shot in the arm \u2013 except instead of the proverbial push, it was a literal doctor-ordered cortisone shot in the arm that sent her into an energetic 22-hour productivity binge.

Thurmond had previously dipped her toe in the clothing industry by creating patterns and making clothes for herself, family and friends, mainly sewing dresses for her nieces, and during that cortisone-induced burst of activity, she decided to focus on clothing for junior boys, took pen to paper and started developing a plan to launch Walt & Finn.

\u201cI\u2019ve always wanted to learn how to design and sew clothes, but I didn\u2019t know where to start,\u201d Thurmond says. \u201cI was lucky enough to find a fellow Midwesterner in Baton Rouge with an MFA from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. I was working full time, and she was able to help me at night. She taught me private sewing lessons for three years so I could learn patternmaking and construction.\"

That line became Walt & Finn, described on the label\u2019s website as \u201ca uniquely proper fashion brand\u201d for boys, specifically ages 6 to 14 \u2013 the blur of ages between toddler-sized duds and menswear, which, if you ask any \u201cboy mom,\u201d can feel like a veritable fashion wilderness dominated by ostentatious athletic logos on sweat-wicking material.

\u201cI knew there was a gap in the marketplace for a line focused on junior boys,\u201d Thurmond recalls, a phenomenon she had experienced firsthand. Thurmond had found herself at a loss when tasked with dressing her son, Walter, in clothes that would look sharp for a nice family dinner or appropriate \u2013 and comfortable \u2013 for tee time. Walter would always complain about the itchy tags or inside adjustable elastic waistband. The adjustable waistband buttons would stick in his side, or the extra elastic would hang out at the top of the shirts.

As a result, the Walt & Finn brand is heavily focused on comfort \u2013 \u201cperformance fabrics in classic styles\u201d is how Thurmond describes it, keeping that classic look but dodging complaints of discomfort from the young wearer.

\"walt_finn03.JPG\"
walt_finn03.JPG

\u201cMy mission is to create well-tailored clothes that boys enjoy wearing to nice occasions or just to look good,\u201d she explains on the line\u2019s website. \u201cBut here\u2019s the kicker: These are also clothes that will flex, stretch and wick, easily accommodating a game of post-dinner football or a quick tree climb.

\u201cWe want Walt & Finn to be clothes your little explorer never wants to take off \u2013 so that he\u2019s dressed and ready for wherever adventure leads.\u201d

The name of the brand plays to this sense of young gentleman-meets-adventurer: \u201cWalter, my son, is an old Southern soul that loves to play golf and tennis,\u201d Thurmond explains. \u201cFinn is from the Mark Twain classic [Adventures of] Huckleberry Finn. His Midwest spirit of adventure balances Walt\u2019s interests with a love for hunting and fishing \u2013 two sides of the same shiny coin.\u201d

The Mississippi River is especially poignant to Thurmond and her family \u2013 the St. Louis native and her family split their time between their St. Louis and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, homes, a flight that essentially follows the Mississippi River from the Missouri River confluence to just northwest of the delta.

Since the initial development of the line and its launch in December 2017, Thurmond has stepped away from the sewing machine. Merchandise design is done through tech packs, a sheet that designers use to communicate all the components needed to construct a product, and the actual manufacturing is done overseas. Her years of sewing lessons weren\u2019t for naught, though, as her experience on that end of the spectrum informs her eye for quality and functional design.

For instance, Walt & Finn\u2019s Gent-Cut Trouser and Gent-Cut Short have an external adjustable waistband, similar to a ski pant, which not only fosters independence but also eliminates unsightly front bunching at the waist. Both are made with a performance golf fabric, which is moisture-wicking and wrinkle-resistant.

From the shorts, Thurmond moved on to design a stretch blazer. Walt & Finn\u2019s navy blazer, The Proper Player, is a superstretch knit that features gentlemanly gold buttons and a mischievous blue camo lining. Thurmond loves the details she\u2019s added within this signature item \u2013 several pockets for headphones and phones, stretch comfort and, for a dressier look, a particularly brilliant addition where the front pocket lining pulls out to function as a gingham pocket square, so they never lose it. \u201cThe Proper Player blazer has plenty of fun pockets, so before I ship it out, I like to slip in a dollar bill or some Walt & Finn stickers for our junior gent to discover. Recently, a mom emailed me that the dollar bill was found at Easter Mass during a quiet moment, although her son let out a loud squeal! It made my day,\u201d Thurmond reveals.

The line also features the Willie Wash & Wear, a stretch performance button-down available in three different plaids; a series of FreeRanger performance polo shirts; a white button-down lined with the same blue gingham as the Proper Player blazer; and an Adventure Tech Tee.

All Walt & Finn products feature signature easy-care performance fabrics in sharp, classic looks, along the lines of \u201ckid-tested, mother-approved\u201d products. In fact, at one trunk show, Thurmond had a boy close his eyes and hold a mainstream athletic-brand T-shirt in one hand and one of her polo shirts in the other \u2013 and based on feel alone, he chose the Walt & Finn FreeRanger.

For the future of the brand, Thurmond intends to keep the focus on the boys\u2019 6 to 14 set, retaining a small, tight line of classic items with some seasonal offerings peppered in \u2013 such as quarter-zips, additional short and pant colors, or stretch cords for winter and swimsuits for summer 2019. Walt & Finn items are primarily sold through country clubs and online, but locally, the line is also participating in the STRUT! Seasonal Collective pop-up shop, which will run through May 5 at Shine Boutique in Ladue.

What\u2019s a local nonprofit organization that you are passionate about and/or work with, and why?

This is a very tough question because there are hundreds of devoted nonprofits that are doing the difficult, yet valuable, work of caring for the real felt needs of people in our region.

I appreciate the work of Forward Through Ferguson as they work to create long-lasting change for people in our area at a systems level. I also am grateful for local nonprofits like the International Institute, Girls Who Code, The Little Bit Foundation and Wyman.

How many kids do you have, and what are their names and ages?

I have two kids: Jaron, 10, my animal conservationist, and Karis, 11, my budding social entrepreneur.

What do you hope to teach your children about philanthropy and its role in sustaining vibrant communities?

I remind my kids that their privilege is a blessing that not everyone experiences today. It\u2019s really important to me that they know what my parents went through and what my sister and I, as children of immigrants, went through when trying to create a life in a new country. I want my kids to understand their roots and to know that we give back because life can be really tough for people. However, I also want them to know that [although] philanthropy is necessary, [it\u2019s] not the only thing that will sustain a vibrant community.

Although dollars are important, it takes a cultural\u00a0 and mental mind transformation toward compassion, empathy and understanding.

What\u2019s your favorite everyday look? What about your favorite style for dressier occasions?

If I could wear running clothes and hoodies every day, I would. However, I\u2019m mostly in muted colors, flowy casual tops, blazers and long necklaces.

My desire to hide behind the scenes probably dictates my clothing choices.

APRIL JOLLY

What\u2019s a local nonprofit organization that you are passionate about and/or work with, and why?

I support the March of Dimes because they advocate for healthy moms and babies and because I am personally connected to their mission, having had two preemies and several pregnancies that ended in loss. Its advocacy and funding of research into the causes of prematurity is helping us better prevent preterm birth \u2013 that gives me hope and inspires me.

How many kids do you have, and what are their names and ages?

I have two kids: My son, Preston, is 5, and my daughter, Sheridan, is 1\u00bd.

What do you hope to teach your children about philanthropy and its role in sustaining vibrant communities?

I want to show my children that philanthropy is a way of life. Engaging them in my philanthropic activities and demonstrating what giving looks like \u2013 whether time, talent or treasure \u2013 is integral to their development as caring, connected citizens. A high level of civic engagement is what helps create and sustain vibrant communities.

What\u2019s your favorite everyday look? What about your favorite style for dressier occasions?

For every day, my go-to is a pair of slim maroon pants, a cream sleeveless shell, a tailored black blazer, \u00a0diamond stud earrings and gray suede booties. For a dressy occasion, I might wear a gold sequin minidress, sparkly stilettos and dangly pav\u00e9 gold earrings.

ANGELA FLOTKEN

What\u2019s a local nonprofit organization that you are passionate about and/or work with, and why?

Birthday Joy. Making a difference alongside my children has been a beautiful way to teach them how lucky they are for the little things \u2026 like celebrating a birthday.

How many kids do you have, and what are their names and ages?

I have Taylor, 10; Morgan, 7; and Campbell, 4.

What do you hope to teach your children about philanthropy and its role in sustaining vibrant communities?

There is a very thin line between being able to give and needing to receive. When we are lucky enough to be on the giving side, we must remember what a gift that is and know that we gain the most by giving.

What\u2019s your favorite everyday look? What about your favorite style for dressier occasions?

Something comfortable but put together. I\u2019m always seeking pieces that are just a little out of the ordinary. This usually means jeans, a belt and a trendy shirt or jacket. [For dressy occasions, I go for] modern but classic. Is that a thing? Think Alice and Olivia meets Oscar de la Renta.

The bow blouse can seem conservative and corporate, but this Alice and Olivia top qualifies as anything but. Although certainly a fun option for the office, it also looks great styled with ripped jeans for a day (or night) on the town!

From yesteryear\u2019s American actress Grace Kelly, who became Princess of Monaco in 1956, to modern-day American actress Meghan Markle, set to officially become a royal when she weds Prince Harry in May, today\u2019s St. Louis brides are emulating the sophisticated style of the world\u2019s most fashionable royalty.

Upcoming royal weddings have influenced area brides\u2019 wedding dress requests and overall trends, notes Megan Rumsey, store manager at The Ultimate Bride in St. Louis. \u201cBrides today are leaning toward a more formal look and a modern, modest touch,\u201d she says.

Local brides want their bridal gowns to be timelessly elegant from all angles, down to every last detail, much like the royals, explains Debbie Rudawsky, owner of Town & Country Bridal Boutique in Clayton. \u201cSleeves have been sought after s ince Kate Middleton stepped out at her royal wedding with long lace sleeves in 2011,\u201d she says.

Stephanie Fagyal, owner of Berrybridge Bridal Boutique in Ladue, echoes that sophisticated elegance is in style for St. Louis brides. \u201cBrides tend to be getting married a little older, and they want something different to fit their style,\u201d she says, noting that there is a big trend toward a sleeker, more sophisticated look. \u201cLess is sometimes more \u2026 on your wedding day. The bride should be the feature \u2013 not the dress.\u201d

To achieve this sought-after classic style, Rumsey says brides are returning to A-line silhouette gowns with tulle or lace and a soft skirt or polished pleat. \u201cWhether a bride wants her skirt to flow around her or frame her, the A-line dress is her top choice,\u2019\u201d she explains. \u201cThis allows her to show her beautiful waistline and have the comfort of a free leg, [while retaining] classic elegance.\u201d

But just because a bridal gown is formal doesn\u2019t mean brides aren\u2019t finding some demure ways to add some dramatic details, from chic bows, intricate beading and 3-D petals to sleek, plunging necklines with illusion fabric [a mesh material], local boutique owners say. \u201cPlunging necklines provide drama, as well as give the illusion of elongating the bride,\u201d Rudawsky says.

Another feature that continues to be popular is an eye-catching back. \u201cThis can come in many forms \u2013 buttons all the way down to the train, a full bow or just a low, open back,\u201d Rudawsky says. Illusion fabric also is being used to create a low back, a unique neckline or even a cap sleeve, Rumsey adds.

Designer Gowns

Berrybridge carries couture collections by top bridal designers, including Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, Monique Lhuillier, Liancarlo, Anne Barge and Modern Trousseau. \u201cEach designer has [her] own \u2018look,\u2019 so every bride has an opportunity to find one that fits [her] wedding the best,\u201d Fagyal notes.

Town & Country Bridal\u2019s most popular designer is Martina Liana, Rudawsky says. \u201cWith gowns that are always right on trend, can be customized to create a one-of-a-kind gown, plus [have] a great price-point, many brides seek out her gowns from all over the Midwest,\u201d she says, adding that brides also love Augusta Jones for her beautiful traditional lace gowns, as well as sleek, elegant styles.

The Ultimate Bride\u2019s best-selling designer gowns are from Essense of Australia and Stella York, which have a wide variety of quality dresses for lower price points, Rumsey says. \u201cAnother popular designer is a new line called L\u2019amour by Calla Blanche, who offers a more couture look,\u201d she adds.

Dream Dress

Rudawsky says Town & Country Bridal\u2019s passion is helping brides fulfill their vision of the perfect wedding dress. \u201cOur brides work one-on-one with their bridal stylist to explore our beautiful gowns in a loving and intimate environment,\u201d she notes. \u201cOur brides feel a collaborative relationship with their stylist, and many tap into their [inner] wedding dress designer by customizing their gown to be as unique as they are.\u201d

At The Ultimate Bride, Rumsey says stylists spend time to get to know each bride at her appointment. \u201cThe gown she is about to choose is so much more than what she\u2019s seen in magazines or on Pinterest,\u201d Rumsey says. \u201cThe gown should show the bride\u2019s personality and reflect her wedding style. We consider the venue, the formality and even the season. She should ultimately feel as good as she looks.\u201d

Most important, Fagyal says: \u201cIt is about finding the gown that a bride puts on and feels the prettiest \u2013 the gown that makes [her] want to walk down the aisle toward her new husband.\u201d

And as soon as Markle walks down the aisle to marry her prince this spring, the style of her bridal gown will begin to influence brides for years to come, Rudawsky says. \u201cOnce the royal wedding happens, there will be something that comes out of [Markle\u2019s] look that others will want to duplicate,\u201d Fagyal adds.

After all, local bridal boutiques are in the business of helping St. Louis brides select their dream dress for their own fairytale endings.
