If you have a special occasion on the horizon or are simply looking for beautiful way to dress up your hair, then take a look through Love Always, Anne Marie, a collection of delicate hair accessories that could be just the thing you need to complete your outfit. Co-founder Anne Marie Metzger started out hand-making pieces for brides and prom-bound girls, but soon enough was receiving too many orders to complete on her own. So she took her business plan to some college friends and their idea took off. "We developed a real passion for the concept because it merges fashion and beauty with one of the most important days of a woman's life - her wedding!" Metzger says. "We wanted to give women the opportunity to individualize her look and put her confidence over the edge on that special day."
Pieces are either purchased from vendors around the world or custom-made according to the customer's specifications. The latter could take months to develop depending on the request, Metzger points out, because they take time to get to know the bride and find the right materials for her design. The best thing is that her company's love extends far beyond hair accessories. "Our goal is to spread the love not only through our customer service, but also to those we don't know," she adds. "We participate in social service events like Habitat for Humanity's Women Build events and the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life walks and give donations to the American Heart Association and breast cancer foundations."
