I am a Minneapolis based hairstylist and makeup artist. I travel on location for events, weddings, and photo shoots. I style in a way that compliments my clients natural hair textures, features, and individual styles. I carry highly pigmented, professional and theatrical makeup and salon professional products that are made to stay in place through tears, and humidity for hours. I regularly attend conferences and advanced education to stay inspired.
Favorite makeup brand: I like beauty counter for day to day. In my kit, I like makeup forever, NARS, viseart, and Ben Nye. I almost always use silicone based temptu airbrush foundation for events.
Favorite hair product: Hairstory and Deva for daily use. For events, I use Osis Dust it to add texture.

How much time do we need to allow for hair and makeup?
Typically we book 45 minutes per service. So 1.5 hours per person if they are having hair and makeup done. The timing can vary depending on style, hair type, details, etc. A service may take more time and occasionally less, but 45 minutes per service is most common.
Where do you travel?
While the majority of our business is in the Twin cities metro area, we will travel most anywhere. There is no additional charge for locations within 20 miles of Minneapolis. After that there is a fee of $.50 per mi. We will go out of state to your destination wedding. Hotel and airfare will be added to the cost of services.
What do I have to do to secure my date?
Contact us via email with a 50% deposit.
What is your cancellation policy?
One week prior to your date is required for a full refund. We appreciate as much advance notice as possible so that we are able to free the day for our stylists and clients.
What is your late policy?
This is up to the individual stylist to determine if they are able to give their best work considering the time left in your appointment slot.
* As a general rule plan to be on location 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time. If you are later than 15 minutes, be prepared to lose your spot. We understand that things come up and event days are busy so we will always do what we can to accommodate everyone. Please try to stay on schedule so nobody feels like their time was cut short.
Should I book an appointment prior to the day of my event to try out some styles?
We strongly encourage that you do for big events such as weddings. See our price list for all services. Whether or not you schedule a hair style or makeup application, we do require a free 15 minute consultation prior to your event.
How far in advance should I come in for an application consultation?
We recommend about 1-2 months before so that most of your wedding style has come together by then. Try to schedule for a day of another event so you can get an idea of your comfort level and wearability.
