Happy 1 Year Anniversary!

Yesterday marks the one year anniversary for my brother and his beautiful bride! It was such a blessing to be a part of their wedding day! I felt so honored to stand beside them and witness the beautiful vows and promises they made to each other.

I was so excited when Alex asked me to do her hair and makeup for her big day! Alex wanted a natural makeup look, and knew she wanted to use clip in extensions to add fullness to her hair! On her eyes I used some neutral MAC eyeshadows: orb & yogurt on the lid, cork & shadowy lady on the crease , and vanilla as a highlighter under her brow. We used Euronext Hair Extensions, and created a full, classic updo to give the perfect wedding day look!

I’m truly thankful to have gained such an amazing sis!

I was so blessed with such a sweet, beautiful, loving best friend growing up. Jessika and I have known each other since we were three, and I couldn’t imagine my childhood without her. Although Jess moved down south when we were in high school and we didn’t get to spend as much time together, she will always have a special place in my heart and I will always cherish the memories we made. It was such an honor to help her get ready on her wedding day. What a stunning bride!

I love updos

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved playing with hair. I would find myself braiding my doll’s hair, pinning up friends hair, and I would often convince my dad to play hair salon with me, which involved a spray bottle, cape, and lots of hair clips (such a great daddy!). All this to say, it wasn’t a surprise to those who knew me back then, that I would end up styling hair when i grew up. Updos are my absolute favorite; here are a few from over the years.
