Krystle Waivio (@krystlewaiviohair) first caught our attention when she won our Wedding Party Wednesday contest on Instagram with a beautiful fishtail braid upstyle in September 2016. That same style also got her into the top 10 semifinalists of our Braids & Brides styling competition at the beginning of 2017.

Waivio's romantic styles continually impress us, and we can't wait to see what she does next!

How social media changed my life: I have met so many talented hairstylists and wedding vendors who are always inspiring, supporting, and teaching me new things. More than half of my bridal bookings have come from Instagram!

The first time I was featured on MODERN SALON: Winning the #WeddingPartyWednesday contest with the video of my grown-up fishtail updo.
