Do you want long, luxurious tresses on your Wedding Day? Or added fullness?
But you know it will never happen naturally - your hair just refuses to grow that long by the wedding day. So what to do you do? Buy hair extensions! Extensions are so common now, about 50% of the brides I work with incorporate into their wedding hairstyle. Cost, or as I call it, investment, ranges from $150 to $200. The hair comes in 14", 16",18 " and 22" lengths, is human hair in all colors and streaks. When snapped into place, can be curled with a hot iron, and used for years, with proper care.
So if you are wanting those long sexy locks go for it!

Say YES to professional Makeup and Hair for your Wedding!

Every bride and bridesmaid wonders - is it worthwhile to invest in a professional makeup artist for the wedding day?
Well the answer is a resounding YES! As a bride you have invested time, effort and money to create your picture perfect day. Why scrimp on the outcome of images?
As a professional, I understand the importance of camera ready makeup, that will last all day and into the night. And as a hairstylist, I can create styles that last, not overdone, but a reflection of you. So go ahead, invest!


A Makeup Lesson with dramatic changes



Working with women and teaching makeup skills is very rewarding. You have maybe been in a rut with your daily makeup routine, or have decided that now is the time to start wearing makeup daily. But not an overwhelming application - just something to liven things up, and maybe present a more polished version of your self.
I recently worked with a great woman, Virginia, who wanted to brush up on her techniques and know what kinds of products to invest in. She emailed me as soon as she got home;
" Thanks so much for my lesson today. I feel like a new woman! I went and bought some of the makeup you suggested. I also bought the face primer. Sephora was out of the Bare Minerals, but they are expecting a shipment on Wednesday, so I’ll pick that up then. I’ve had rave reviews from co-workers and friends on the makeup. Larry, my husband was also very impressed, and that says a lot! "
We also agreed that a new hair style was in order, so she got a hair cut later that week.
