A Few Words With Shaina and Kristy…

Save the Date Beauty - photo by Ronnie Lee Hill Photography What brands of products do you like to use? Why did you choose them?
“We like to use natural products for our skin and hair care.  For hair, we like Alterna, their products work awesome and do not contain harmful chemicals.  For skin, its the natural all the way, our favorite cream is called Cottonwood Bud, made by traditional medicine woman Edna Deerrunner.  Not only is this cream all natural, we refer to it as a miracle cure, for the way it transform the skin.  For makeup, we like a few different brands, but we generally use Makeup Forever, because it’s the best for long lasting and waterproof wear. We are constantly on the hunt for high performing all natural makeup options.”

What do you have to offer for brides with lower budgets?
“High quality service with totally competitive rates plus we include free trial styling for our Brides.”

“Definitely our personalities, artistic nature and our ability to create incredible work while having a great time.  Plus our studio is an inspiring and relaxing place to be.”

How do you determine what look is best for each person?
“We always have our clients send us their inspiration before the trial or appointment.  We discuss what they like best about their inspirations and apply that to best enhance their natural features.”

If a client wants a certain style but you can tell it doesn’t make them look great, how would you deal with that situation?
“We would suggest ways to adapt the look to best suit their features. Ultimately we aim to give our clients what they want while leaving them looking and feeling amazing.”
