Blush and Braids Beauty Bar

After I graduated cosmetology school from the Aveda Institute in 2007, I spent most of my career working for high-end Aveda salons as a color specialist. I furthered her cosmetology experience by getting certified in extensions, and adding makeup artistry to my resume as a freelance artist for both Aveda and Benefit Cosmetics. 

I took many continued education classes in styling and extensions, and found my love for updos and all things bridal. After I had my son, I began freelancing as a bridal hairstylist and makeup artist - and went on to launch Blush and Braids Beauty Bar in 2018.

Since then, I have added a handful of talented artists to my freelance team to accommodate any size bridal party. I love the process of getting to know my clients individually and really listening to their own unique inspiration!
