Side Updo

Here we have our gorgeous bride Taylor with a side swept, voluminous, textured updo. She, her mother and the bridal party were a stunning modelesque group. Taylor’s husband is on the US rowing team, as well as members of her bridal party and the rest rowed in college together so it was a really fun, beautiful and TALL group! These photos by A Muse Photography & Ashley West are perfect !

Braided Updo


I can’t explain how fun it is to work with a photographer I love, a pretty model and the go ahead to ” do whatever you think will look good” with her hair and makeup. It’s pretty much a dream, and the outcome was perfect! Hoffer Photography and I collaborated to do this styled shoot for Ironstone Ranch. I did a French fishtail braided side updo and my sister Abby did her makeup with neutral eyes and a coral lip. Love x 1,000,000.


We Laugh We Love

Melody was just a gorgeous bride!!! She wanted a big updo with lots of volume on top. We kept her makeup simple, and bridal to go with her classic dress with illusion neckline. Her photographers We Laugh We Love did a great job capturing her day.

Take Two

I first met Nicole when she was a bridesmaid in her best friends wedding I was doing. We clicked but I was unfortunately booked for her wedding date. She started coming to me for haircuts and talked about doing an anniversary shoot in her wedding dress. She mentioned that the day of your wedding it goes by so fast and she felt they couldn’t enjoy the photography process and get everything she wanted with so much going on. For this shoot she asked for a more natural look to pair her denim shirt with her dress. I think the photos came out adorable, they look relaxed and so in love.

Tips For Your Trial

2015-09-30 12.14.24

A trial is the time when you can practice your wedding day look, make sure it’s exactly what you and leave with a layer of stress removed knowing you’ll love the way you look on the big day. Over the years I’ve come up with a few tips to make things go smoothly and to help you explain exactly what you want.

Find your inspiration– Make sure there’s a clear vision, hairstyles that look similar or have similar vibes ( ex: bohemian, sculpted, romantic) The more clear vision you have the better the appointment will go. If you are all over the board it’s harder to narrow down exactly what you want in the appointment.

Find photos that look similar to you: If you bring a makeup picture of a blonde with small blue eyes but you have large brown eyes the makeup is not going to look the same on you. Try and find pictures of girls with similar facial features and hair. If your hair is thin and short avoid looking at pics with thick long hairdo’s. Also the same updo will look different on a blonde and brunette.

Decide how dramatic or not you want to be: Try to find a picture of the exact amount of makeup you like. A lot of times you may like a picture of Kim K smokey eye but won’t like it on yourself or don’t want to wear that much makeup. There are so many photos on pinterest, look closely at the pics at the eyeshadow color , amount of liner, length of lashes, color on cheeks and make sure those things are what you want on yourself.

If you are unhappy say something: If you don’t like something or want to change something don’t be afraid to speak up. We want you to leave satisfied. So if you don’t like something don’t panic just try to explain what you want to change with detail and we will work until you are happy!

Bring your veil and hair piece. : If you already have your veil or head piece its always nice to bring it so you can see the whole thing come together!

Molly had such a vision for the way she wanted her wedding and her hair and makeup to look. I jumped right on board with this perfect flower crown, garden-esque, organic glam look. We did her hair in a soft side updo with loose pieces falling out. Her makeup had a hint of a smokey eye with a touch of pink. Her skin had the perfect healthy glow look. Faith West captured the day with these fantastic photos. Enjoy 😉

Shaelyn and Abby our lead Hair and makeup artists on the Team did an outstanding job on our beautiful bride Alyssa. She got a soft romantic up do with a braid intertwined , off her face , textured and ultra voluminous! Her eyes were done with soft champagne colors focusing on the liner and lashes that made it really pop. I just can’t get enough of her dress too!



Blonde Bombshell

I am obsessed with Hoffer Photography , and you should be too. Their work is always amazing, and interesting. I love when we have a bride together because I know something cool is going to happen. HERE IT IS. The perfection of our bride Kelly. I could stare at these for days, I hope you can too.

My bride Kayleigh was BEYOND gorgeous as were all of her bridesmaids. She opted for a loose low messy French twisted up do with major volume on top. We did her makeup really glamorous focusing on a dramatic bridal eye and super light pink lips. Her photographer Allie Skylar captured the day perfectly!


50 Shades of Purple

Megan had her girls in multiple shades of purple. We added a hint of mauve into her makeup to tie everything together. Mauve/purple tones are a nice way to bring a pop of color to your eye if you want to try something other than neutrals.  We did a bump with some volume in the front of her hair and swept the rest back into a elegant intertwined updo. She and her girls were so nice to work with and it was such a fun day. The super cool photos are from Uriah Baet !
