Whether you're looking for a classic, romantic look or something more unique, I can help you create the perfect bridal look. We'll consider your dress, coloring, accessories, and personal style. I will also create a timeline and plan that will ensure everything goes smoothly. With my years of experience in the wedding industry, I know how important communication is in making sure everything goes according to plan. Rest assured, I'll be with you every step of the way to make sure your wedding day is everything you've ever dreamed of.


Come to you on your wedding day

You want to hire an artist that will make you look and feel your best on your wedding day. I’m an experienced on-location wedding hair and makeup artist with 15 years of experience. I’m calm, organized, flexible, and reliable. Contact me today to book your trial run!

Reliable Support from an Experienced Professional

Micro Weddings

As a freelance hairstylist and makeup artist, I specialize in catering to smaller groups, ensuring that you and your closest confidants look absolutely stunning. With the ability to handle up to 10 services, including the bride, there's no need to stress about gathering a large group in order to satisfy minimums. Whether it's just you or a small bridal party, I've got you covered. 

Large Wedding Parties

While I love weddings, I love work-life balance more. I do not enjoy hiring or training sub-contractors anymore. However, I can cater to large groups by offering my services as a sub-contractor; seamlessly working alongside other artists that you have personally selected.  If you are building your own carefully crafted beauty team, let me know! I can provide you with referrals to artists who I think are fantastic and fun to work with. If you don't want the burden of hiring a sub-contractor, let me know. I can provide this service for an additional fee of $150.

The Process

The process...

Check the Date

Let's see if your wedding date is available! 

The best way to do this is to send me an email.

Trial Run?

*Trial runs are recommended but not required. 

Trial runs are performed in a professional setting in my Mundelein home. 

I will hold your wedding date on my calendar until you complete the trial run. 

Brides are encouraged to bring a friend or relative.  Trial runs typically take 2.5 - 3 hours.

Sign Contract

Within a few days of your trial, you will receive a contract questionnaire. Fill out the information and I will create your contract and retainer invoice for 25% of the services requested. Contracts and retainers are completed online

Create a Schedule

Your contract and retainer invoice will reflect the number of services you estimate your party will need. As your wedding day approaches I will ask for a final count you supply to create your getting ready schedule.
