When it came to decide on her bridal hair look, actress Joey King opted for an effortless, romantic look that fit the vibe of her destination wedding to director Steven Piet.

The couple – who got engaged in February 2022 — exchanged vows at La Fortaleza — a 22-acre estate in Mallorca, Spain built in the 1600s — on Sept. 3, with the ceremony overlooking the fortress' lower-terrace swimming pool. King, 24, wore an elegant Oscar de la Renta ballgown with a sweetheart neckline and texture reminiscent of flowers.

In preparation for the special day, King collaborated with her long-time hairstylist Dimitris Giannetos to find the perfect hairstyle that would complement both her style and dress. Giannetos has worked with King for over 9 years, since the actress was just 15 years old.

“JOEY 💕💕💕I couldn’t describe how happy I am for you @joeyking ! My little sister got married WOOHOOOOO Congratulations Joey and Steven love u both to the moon n back :)” Giannetos wrote on Instagram of a picture of King’s wedding hair.

Giannetos tells PEOPLE exclusively he helped curate two looks for King’s wedding day – one for the ceremony and another for the reception.

“The hair at the ceremony was down soft and wavy over her shoulders and at the reception we just pulled some of the hair up with a few strands framing her face in the front,” he says.

“The inspiration behind Joey's wedding look was that we wanted everything to be elegant, romantic and timeless,” he continues. “Something to highlight her natural beauty and not overshadow the beautiful Oscar de la Renta wedding dress.”

He adds that is was important to them both that they weren't creating a trendy look.

"She was wearing a beautiful Oscar de la Renta dress so I felt the hair should be simple and over her shoulders," he tells PEOPLE. "I’m always working closely with her makeup artist so overall everything works out perfectly!”

Since Giannetos and King have worked together for so many years, the hairstylist says the two have a very close and playful relationship. “We are like family,” he says, mentioning that he also styled one of King’s sister's hair for the wedding.

“We always discuss what the look should be,” he tells PEOPLE. “Joey always trusts me with her hair and lets me create anything I have dreamt of since day one! My favorite moment was actually the entire weekend. It was so lovely to spend some time with her in her big special day in Mallorca.”

Giannetos also says the hair products he used from NEXXUS ensured that King’s looks lasted all day.

The main hero product: NEXXUS' Unbreakable Care Root Lift Thickening Spray, which "protects the hair from the heat and gives the hair an extra lift without making it feel stiff,” Giannetos shares with PEOPLE.

He also used the NEXXUS Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist to "add some texture throughout the hair."

For heat styling he turned to the GHD Duet Style 2-In-1 Hot Air Styler to add body, bounce and "help keep the hair soft and silky while protecting from humidity.

As for the groom's wedding attire, Piet, 32, wore a suit by Italian designer Brunello Cucinelli, with the jacket monogrammed on its inside with his name and the wedding date. King's longtime friend and stylist Jared Eng styled the couple for their big day.

King told Vogue the wedding was an “unforgettable moment.”

“We truly felt so perfectly present, and soaking in every detail was pure magic,” she shared of the couple's big day.

"The best part was seeing all our friends who didn’t know each other just melting into one another and instantly connecting. We are surrounded by the best people, and seeing them all together was infectiously joyous," she added.
