The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 50, who said “I do” on Saturday, August 6, rocked a towering mane of curls, packed with $7,000 worth of hair extensions, according to her hairstylist Lucia Casazza.

“As we know, Teresa is the queen of Jersey. We needed hair that was fit for a queen,” Casazza told Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM radio show Andy Cohen Live on Monday, August 8. “You know what we stand for in Jersey, you go big, or you go home,” the beauty guru, who has been working on Giudice’s mane since season 3 of the Bravo franchise, said.

Giudice wanted something “over the top,” sending Casazza “elaborate” and “fabulous” looks from traditional Italian and Mediterranean weddings, the hair expert told Cohen.”[Teresa] is always about the hair.”

Casazza also shared Ruelas had a say. “Luis loves her hair out of her face,” Casazza explained.

With that in mind, Casazza, Giudice and the Jersey native’s daughter Gia picked out a sparkly crown — a piece Casazza built the entire hair look around.

“It was all human hair … We added extensions. We used clips,” Casazza said. From there, Casazza created an “insert,” which she added more extensions to, creating the rounded poof that sat above Giudice’s tiara.

In total, Casazza used seven bundles of hair, two packs of clip-ins and over 1,500 bobby pins to keep Giudice’s tresses in place, she explained to Cohen. “[Her hair] took over $7,000 worth of extensions … and that kind of styling cost $2,500,” Casazza shared when asked about pricing.

Giudice and Ruelas tied the knot at the Park Chateau Estate in East Brunswick, New Jersey.

To complement her show-stopping hair, Giudice wore a strapless gown by Mark Zunino that featured a mermaid cut. The groom looked dapper in a white tuxedo.

The ceremony was a Bravolebrity-filled affair as her RHONJ costars Jennifer Aydin, Dolores Catania, Margaret Josephs and Jackie Goldschneider were in attendance as well as Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks and Real Housewives of Dubai‘s Chanel Ayan. Former Real Housewives of New York City star Dorinda Medley was also present.
