Our First Time

Although Andrew and I are both hairdressers we’ve taken very different directions in our careers. We both started out across the board doing all types of hair, men’s, women’s, color, cut, styling ect. But it wasn’t long before we both narrowed down our fields to what we excelled at most, and funnily enough they were complete opposites. The nice thing about it has always been that if I get a request for something I don’t do, I send that client to Andrew. And when Andrew gets a request for something […] Read more…

The Perfect Wedding

Honestly, I don’t even know where to start when it comes to Courtney’s wedding, there are just too many ridiculously perfect pieces to this day. So, I’ll just start with the most obvious, Courtney. Courtney is a seriously rad chick. On a day where most girls are ball of nerves she was as cool as a cucumber, laughing, joking and having fun. She made me feel like I was one of the girls. On top of that she’s drop dead gorgeous and has amazing hair! I mean who knew that […] Read more…

Maui

Maui is such a special place for Andrew and I. Of course its beautiful, and it goes without saying that it’s one of the best vacation spots for everyone around the world. But for Andrew and I it has become the place where we go when we need to stop, reset and recharge. I’d been to the islands multiple times before with my family, but never to Maui. Our honeymoon was my first trip to Maui and Andrew’s first trip to the islands altogether. That in itself gave it a […] Read more…

Living Dolls

I love working on photoshoots! There’s so much creative freedom for a makeup artist or hairdresser and the styles tend to be much less polished then typically requested at a wedding. Which is a blast for me because I love big, messy, lived in looks. Especially when working with a fun lifestyle clothing company.  And Living Doll is a pretty rad company. Their clothes are amazing (I literally wanted to buy everything at the shoot!) and they have a complete standard and plus size line.  Not to mention everything is […] Read more…

It Started With Highlights

Six years ago Chelsea sat in my chair for a highlight touch up when her regular hairdresser was out on maternity leave. We immediately hit it off and after that first appointment she never went back to her previous girl. Over the years those simple hair appointments allowed us to spend hours talking about anything and everything, which grew into a real friendship. Fast forward to her wedding day, one of the most important days in her life, and we find that what started as a simple hair appointment led […] Read more…

A Purely Lavish Event

I met Carrie when she started dating my friend Justin and I immediately liked her.  She’s as beautiful as she is sweet and such a good match for him. She also owns a wedding and event planning company called “Pure Lavish Events” which I must admit, I think is so rad.  When she and Justin got engaged I was so happy for them, they’re one of those couples you just know are meant for each other. And then, Carrie asked me to do hair for the wedding! Ok, let me […] Read more…

A Hip Downtown Wedding

Nick and Anna are two of our closest friends and the hippest kids I know. And when I say that, I am not exaggerating. Every thing they do is 100%, they don’t cut corners and they don’t do anything halfway, not to mention they’re both incredibly creative and have amazing style. There were so many details to their wedding that made it distinctly theirs, for example instead of bouquets the bridesmaids carried gold sequin clutches, instead of cake they had ice cream that was mixed and frozen right in front of […] Read more…
