My Focus is on You

It's YOUR DAY
I just love brides, weddings, hair days! I can’t believe this is my 14th year doing weddings! I love braids. I love updos. I love making you, my client, look and feel beautiful for the most important day of your life. I take that job very seriously and I love every minute of wedding hair and makeup design. Your day will be unforgettable… and so should you.
 

From the moment we start designing your look, I want to make you feel completely comfortable – and most importantly, confident. 

My goal is to take your vision for yourself and help make it a reality. Beauty is so personal and unique to each individual. My focus is on you and the masterpiece we create together.

Thank you so much! Couldn't of looked this beautiful without your help!

Beauty is being comfortable and confident in your own skin

As soon as I asked Michelle to be in charge of my bridal look, I knew that I wouldn't have to worry a bit about feeling beautiful for the big day. When I asked my now husband how he wanted my hair and make-up to look he said he wanted my hair down and for me "not to be caked in make-up". I showed Michelle the photo of the hairstyle that I wanted and she never hesitated in letting me know that she would be able to make it happen. She took her time during our trial to talk me through what she was doing and to make sure that I was happy with how it was turning out. Any suggestions she made only enhanced the look that we were going for. Of course it is hard to exactly replicate any hairstyle, but Michelle took pictures throughout the trial to try and get the wedding day hair to be as close as possible. She took her time the day of the wedding and it turned out better than I could have expected.

I'm not one to wear a lot of make-up and I was nervous that I wouldn't look like myself, but I definitely wanted to feel a little glamorous. Michelle did an excellent job of enhancing my natural look without making me look like a completely different person. Michelle made me feel very comfortable in letting her know what I liked and didn't like. She took any critique I gave her and used it to make me look and feel beautiful. Michelle also styled two of my bridesmaids for the wedding. They had both mentioned that they had previously been in weddings where they weren't completely happy with how their hair and/or makeup turned out, but were sincerely happy with how everything turned out with Michelle. She managed her time very well and at no point did we ever feel rushed or behind schedule. I could tell throughout my time with Michelle that her number one priority was to make sure that I was happy with everything she did. She genuinely cared not only about how I looked for the big day, but also how I felt. And I had never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day.
