Stassi Schroeder is the queen bee of SUR, so it’s no surprise her wedding is going to be over the top.
The “Vanderpump Rules” star, 31, is planning a fall wedding in Rome to fiancé Beau Clark which is sure to include lots of pinot grigio, ranch dressing, her signature shade of blue — and, of course, a picture-perfect bridal ‘do.
In fact, hairstylist Bradley Leake — who was also responsible for fellow “VPR” star Brittany Cartwright’s hair the day she wed Stassi’s ex-boyfriend, Jax Taylor — says the look will be extra dramatic.
“Stassi and I are both planning weddings in Italy, so we have had lots of wedding chat during our morning glam sessions and photoshoots,” Leake told Page Six Style. “She is chic and the queen of a fashion moment, so you know its going to be next level.”
Judging by the looks Leake created for Schroeder’s engagement photoshoot and party, the reality star is currently gravitating toward Old Hollywood looks with subtle waves and deep parts. For Cartwright’s Kentucky wedding, Leakes created a more bohemian look that incorporated braids and accessories, like a pearl clip-in that Leake sells for $25.99 through his company Basic B Beauty.
“Brittany was such an easygoing and low-key bride. She was truly on cloud nine spending the day with her family and her favorite people,” Leake said. “We had no drama with her looks; she was super happy, beaming all day.” However, the stylist and his team were also responsible for the bridesmaids and had to handle multiple looks for the big day, which presented a challenge.
Leake often finds himself balancing the requests (and personalities) of all the show’s women, whom he not only sees for touch-ups and colorings, but also before big events like the reunion shows.
He said he tries to stay out of whatever drama might be happening in the friend group at any given time — but juggling Schroeder and Cartwright as well as Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute and occasionally Lala Kent and Katie Maloney-Schwartz isn’t easy.
“The girls don’t ‘fight’ over glam. They are respectful of each other’s busy schedules and typically work around each other,” he said. “In cases where they aren’t getting along, we just do glam separate and I’ll travel from person to person. It takes a village; I have two amazing assistants, Maura and Cynthia, couldn’t do it without them.”
While he’s helped craft each cast member into her most camera-ready self, there are some he’d still love to push further.
While Leake counts Madix as the most willing to try a new style or length by adding his favorite Hidden Crown hair extensions to her short bob, he said that Doute is the least likely to change her “queen of the boho wave” style. “We are working on getting her out of her middle-part comfort zone,” he said.
As for whom Leake would give a makeover? It’d be Cartwright, whose long brown hair he would chop to mid-length.
Perhaps she’ll debut a shorter cut at Schroeder’s wedding.
