Teresa Giudice’s $10,000 wedding hair included 1,500 bobby pins

If you’re not about hairspray, steer clear of it.

“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice married Luis Ruela Saturday at the Park Chateau in East Brunswick, NJ in front of tons of friends, family and co-stars.

But members of the bride’s glam squad were the MVPs of the evening, with hairstylist Lucia Casazza affixing a towering hairpiece to the reality TV star’s head.

In an interview with Andy Cohen for his Sirius XM radio show on Monday morning, Casazza, who has worked with Tre since Bravo season 3, revealed all the details of the over-the-top look.

“As we know, my daughter Teresa is the queen of Jersey, so we needed hair fit for a queen,” Casazza revealed. “You go big or you go home. [Teresa] said: ‘My hair must be exaggerated.’ “

The stylist also revealed that Ruela prefers her new bride’s hair out of her face, so she was aware of the groom’s preferences on the couple’s big day, sweeping Giudice’s locks in a twisted half look inside a huge crown.

Inspired by Italian and Mediterranean brides with elaborate hairstyles, Casazza built a custom mesh piece featuring $7,000 of real human hair extensions. The price of the style itself? About $2,500.

Giudice changed her dress for the reception, but kept the huge hair and crown for the duration of the event.

It took nearly two hours for Casazza and the other members of the glam crew to remove more than 1,500 bobby pins from Giudice’s hair after the reception – “before she could do any bizarre wedding activities” with the groom.

But she may have struggled to move, as Casazza said Tre complained of having a sore neck at the end of the night under the weight of so much hair.

Dorinda Medley, former ‘Real Housewives of New York’ star and wedding attendee, called on Cohen’s radio show to also give the scoop on the event, saying, ‘It was a Rapunzel moment, Rapunzel, let your hair down “. It was a lot of hair but she can pull it off. It worked.”

Fans flocked to social media to comment on the look, with many comparing Giudice’s hair to Marge Simpson, thanks to its imposing height; others compared her look to Cindy Lou Who and “The Bride of Frankenstein.”

Others joked that brother-in-law and sister-in-law Joe and Melissa Gorga were hiding in her voluminous hair. like the pair jumped on the wedding at the last minute because of a disagreement with the bride.

Cohen was certainly giddy with the look, calling on Casazza to bring the set of extensions to display at BravoCon this fall. With a Bravo wedding special on the way, Tre’s hair is sure to go down in history.
