Meet Alicia R: Bridal Hair Stylist

Hi! My name is Alicia and I entered the beauty industry over 12 years ago.

Something I truly believe in is you can never stop learning; education in any industry can only help you expand and grow.

I have traveled throughout Connecticut and more styling brides on their special day. Being part of something so special is where my passion drives from. To make someone feel beautiful is truly a gift and there is no greater reward than a happy client.

Aside from my work, my husband, daughter, and “dood” [golden doodle dog] Penny are my whole world!

With all the inspiration and beauty this career has to offer, it’s become an addiction of mine making clients feel and look their best!

Meet Johanna: Makeup Artist

I have been a professional makeup artist since 2012 after starting with my friends always asking me to do their makeup for them. I made sure to get the makeup certification to ensure I am always as sanitary as possible.

Fun facts about me include: I love watching plastic surgery on YouTube, I’m absolutely terrified of bugs, and I love laughing so much; it’s the best medicine!

 

Meet Tegan: Bridal Hair Stylist & Makeup Artist

Hi there! My name is Tegan and I wear many hats, but “freelance hair and makeup artist” is one of my favorites!

I’ve been doing bridal hair (and many other special occasions) for nearly 20 years. I love the artistry of hair design and making hair dreams come true. We women are so hard on ourselves, and it’s my favorite thing to take the time to make someone feel really special and incredibly beautiful.

I’m so looking forward to working with you and helping highlight your natural beauty on your special day!

Meet Laura: Makeup Artist

I am self taught makeup artist, that had the opportunity to take a hobby and make it a career! Initially working as a social worker, I was able to make a career change and have been a certified makeup artist for over 9 years now, traveling all over New England.

When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my boyfriend and our puppy, Theo. I love going to the gym and watching Law and Order SVU.

My goal as a makeup artist is to make you feel like you!

Meet Amelia: Makeup Artist

Hello beautiful! I am a MAC certified freelance makeup artist. I have been in the beauty industry professionally for 3 years but I have been learning and playing with makeup since 2011.

Outside of my love for makeup, I have a golden retriever fur baby that I adore. He sits with me while I paint, draw – anything creative is how I like to spend my free time!

While color and glitter is a ton of fun, my favorite makeup looks are the ones that accentuate my clients naturally beautiful features. Fresh and flawless looking skin is a must.

Meet Virginia: Makeup Artist

Hello, I’m Virginia! I am a licensed cosmetologist and makeup artist specializing in airbrush and have been in the industry for 6 years!

When I’m not doing bridal makeup, my time is spent with family. I am a bride to be myself and we have two incredible children together. I also love yoga, hiking, and a beautiful beach day!

My goal for you on your wedding day is to feel beautiful, comfortable, and confident! I can’t wait to meet you and celebrate the beauty of finding your soulmate with you!

Meet Vanessa P: Makeup Artist

I have loved makeup ever since I was a little girl, thanks to my mom! I can remember sitting at the kitchen table and watching my mother in awe as she created the most glamorous looks on her beautiful face. This was all it took to know what I wanted to do when I grew up.

I have been working in the beauty industry for almost two decades now, and my passion for it continues to grow. For me, it is all more than just makeup. It is a connection to new people and reconnection with old friends on some of the most special days of their lives, and I am always thrilled to be a part of it.

I love skin care just as much as I love makeup because I believe that your makeup only looks as good as the skin underneath it. When I am not working with beauty clients, I am teaching yoga, hiking, meditating, eating yummy vegan food (especially sweets!) and spending time with my little Frenchie, Norman. It would be my pleasure to work with you and make you feel beautiful inside and out!

Meet Alicia M: Bridal Hair Stylist & Makeup Artist

Hi ladies, my name is Alicia and I’m a traveling hair stylist and makeup artist.

My passion for hair came at an early age growing up around a big Italian family who had amazing talent in hair, the biggest influence being my mother. This inspired me to continue the family legacy and become a licensed cosmetologist in 2010 in both Florida, where I have built clientele, and Connecticut.

I’m constantly eager to learn through various hair classes, shows and most importantly the experiences with my clients. I always dreamed of my wedding day as a little girl which has influenced my growing interest and desire to specialize in bridal hair. My priorities are to create a calm and comfortable experience and make you feel confident on your wedding day, all at the pleasure of your convenience on site!

 Besides making people feel beautiful inside and out, I love being with and visiting family and traveling to different places around the world with my husband whom I look forward to building a beautiful family with.

Meet Danielle: Makeup Artist

Hey gorgeous! My love for makeup stems from my passion for making people feel like their most fabulous self. Growing up with a cosmetologist for a mom, I was always playing with hair and makeup. My first product was a pink glitter lipgloss from Bath and Body Works, but I’ve since upgraded my collection to encompass the products and tools needs to create a range of beautiful looks.

Through a decade of growth, formal training and practice, my skills have been refined and perfected to give my clients the glam looks that they desire. Life may not be perfect, but your makeup can be!

 

Meet Kelly: Bridal Hair Stylist

24 years and I still love going to my job everyday! Having the pleasure of being a part of people’s major events is one part of the piece. Knowing I will make a difference, whether it be senior ball, junior prom, or your very special wedding day makes it fun!

I have educated myself beyond the Connecticut state license qualifications. I have traveled to Washington DC, Soho New York, New York City, Boston, New Jersey, Dallas, Texas, Kentucky, as well as many parts of CT to hone my craft.

Tony and Guy, Vidal Sassoon, Graham Webb, Paul Mitchell, L’Oreal Exclusive, and Paul Digrioli, are just a few of those top notch educators.I was trained by Nancy Braun herself, who trained me in her technique of balayage before it even hit the fashion industry!

My clients are my friends and I love making them look and feel great! I am there for them during the good and the bad. I will make sure not only do they look good, but they feel good at the same time.
