Most trials will be performed at The Hair Shop on weekdays due to our busy weekend schedule. The salon is also where any cutting/coloring preparatory services will be performed and where all permanent extensions will be done.


We strive to provide quality hair and makeup services at a price point that everyone can afford. For complete pricing details, please contact us.

For any event that includes more than one person, a signed contract and retainer will be collected in order to ensure that your desired date will be held.

Special Info

All updos will be done on clean fully dried hair. Showering the night before is highly recommended. Remember, styles last the best when little to no conditioner is used! All on-location blowouts will be done on clean wet hair. 

Bridal Hair/Makeup Assistant

The Updo Guru Bridal hair/Makeup Assistant package is perfect for the bride who is looking to smoke up their eyes for the night time reception or change their hairstyle after the wedding ceremony. Hourly rates apply and include touch ups for the whole bridal party.

Airbrush Makeup vs. Traditional Makeup

Airbrush makeup is sprayed onto the face with a compressor leaving tiny micro dots of makeup resting on the skin. In the traditional method, the makeup is rubbed into the skin consequently exaggerating the pores. The ability to mix airbrush foundation colors for individual custom blends is unsurpassed, resulting in a flawless, durable, more natural look then the regular heavy foundations.

The silicone base of these foundations allow for 18 hours or longer of wear. Fading, melting and moisture are no foe for this foundation so your tears of joy will no longer be a problem on your very big day!
