Lets Get Personal
I'm Amy, a bridal beauty specialist based in Boulder, Colorado and I love my job. Like, a lot.
Bridal hair and makeup is such personal, delicate work. Weddings hold an enormous amount of emotional weight and there is no one-look-fits-all. I strive to not only amplify your natural beauty, but to dive deeper into creating this memory of yours as something artistically crafted just for you. Your wedding day is one of the most intimate, happy, (and most photographed) days you’ll ever experience. It’s important to know your hair and makeup artist not only as a stylist, but to feel like you know something about them as a person, too. The last thing I want is to feel like a stranger to you. I’m going to be spending hours with you the morning of one of the most important days of your life. How you feel that morning will set the tone for the day - lets make it a magnificent one!
I have always loved hair, but it took me a while to find myself doing anything with it. I was a dancer throughout childhood (no really, about 30-40 hours of ballet a week) and went on to earn a Bachelor's degree in Dance. At 20 years old, I was 98% positive that I wanted to join the circus (I still haven't ruled out that possibility). A few years and a handful of injuries later, I decided that being the wigs and makeup manager for an opera house was the best way for me to stay in the performance industry (Spoiler Alert: It didn’t really work out that way), so off to cosmetology school I went.
Upon graduation from the Aveda Institute I continued to develop my skills under celebrity makeup artist, James Ryder, in Los Angeles, California. I left the salon life in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2016 and am now focused on site specific work, such as weddings, special events, and editorial or film projects. I've realized that my passion isn't limited to the art of dance, hairstyling, or makeup; but expands beyond outer beauty into the heart and soul of each woman I meet. I love that I still cry at almost every wedding whether I'm a guest or a stylist, and hope for this forever. I am so excited that you stopped by, and I truly hope that our paths cross soon. I would love to hear from you!
