As a makeup artist and hair stylist, it can be difficult at times to interpret the desired style of a client. Perhaps I don’t understand the terms you are using, or somewhere in my description to you I’m not clearly verbalizing what I think you mean. This is why pictures can solve a lot of those problems, and having at least some sort of idea of what you are visualizing for your look can be so helpful. But even then, confusion happens.
However, I’m going to go over a few of the basics that seem to come up a lot when I’m meeting with a client, or styling one of her wedding party members.
As a freelance hair stylist and makeup
artist, I do what I do not only because I love it but because I see the value
in it. On your wedding day, you’re
running around like a mad woman. Are the
flowers here? Is the cake on its
way? Are the tables and chairs set
up? Does everyone know what they’re
supposed to do? Do all the bridesmaids
dresses fit? Does anyone know where
grandma is? The caterers want to know
where to deliver the food, the cake needs to be placed perfectly, the chaos at
the venue is in full swing, and even with a wedding planner at your side – your
input for the day is needed periodically and consistently, until the time you
walk down the aisle and say “I do.
I have a lot of clients ask me what products I use for makeup application and hair styling. I dream of the day when I can say that my entire kit is full of the most expensive items on the market, and that everything I have is only used by the finest boutiques and salons. However, being a stylist on a budget, as well as a woman who loves to try a variety of products - I have developed an appreciation for everything from Maybeline to MAC.

Hello my lovlies!
It looks like 2011 is shaping up to be a busy year. There are an abundance of opportunties to work with so many talented industry professionals, and I have had the privilege of meeting several more in the start of this year.
As a hair stylist and makeup artist, the enjoyment and satisfaction I get out of helping each woman discover her own unique beauty never gets old. It doesn't take a ton of makeup or hairspray to see the significant changes a stylist can make to not only your appearance, but also your confidence.
Upon creating LadyCharm Artistry as the title for my business of providing any occasion beauty services, I decided that my goal was to present a name that portrayed classiness, as well as creativity, at first glance. As I have stepped into the realm of freelance styling, I have been met with many eye-opening experiences that have helped me outline what I believe is important in how I do business.
Professionalism: This is an all-encompassing word that involves how I present myself, how communication is established and carried out, what I expect from you as well as what you expect from me, being able to be open with ideas, questions and concerns, respect, and all parties involved holding value to their part of our work together.
Thank you for visiting my website. I have enjoyed being a part of the beauty industry for several years, and have always had a specific desire to focus on weddings. I love exploring the wide array of options out there, to get a woman ready for probably the most glamorous day of her life. You get to decide how everything comes together, and be the spotlight in pictures that will depict your special day for the rest of your life.
I have had the pleasure of working with many fabulous women as they prepare for this big event, and as wedding season gets into full swing this year, I am excited to work with many more!
