Changing the Wedding Timeline Recomendation

All the information out there in countless magazines recommends booking your hair and makeup 4-6 months before the wedding. I really don't think this is a good recommendation and I would like to make hair and makeup on the "12 months ahead" category.
I have countless brides that contact me 6 months from their wedding and are completely shocked to hear that I am booked. I often ask them why they are surprised and they respond that they were following the advice of these wedding checklists and timeliness.
On the slight chance I am free, these brides seem to be panicked that they have waited so long.
I often hear from brides that book their hair and makeup in advance, like they were supposed to, and then contact me after their trial in a panic that they need to find someone else. I really don't like to get these phone calls, especially when I can't help them. I wish I could help everyone.
So, not only do I want to change the industry's mindset, I want to offer my advice to brides," to look for hair and makeup early." Have a design appointment with these people early enough to know if it is a fit and you are comfortable with their work. If things do not work out you have time to find someone else.
Remember, if you are looking in prime wedding season,June through October or looking for on site service, these services book up the fasted. I often start booking 12-16 months in advance and recommend more people think ahead. I really understand that hair and makeup are not important to everyone and it is not always high on the priority list, in fact it can be a last minute detail.If I could change the industry's mindset of last minute booking I would be happy.
I hope this advice becomes reality to all those who are looking for hair and makeup services.

Miss Teen Maine

I had the opportunity of working with this young lady,Vanessa as she competed in her first beauty competition. She did really well, First runner up and most photogenic, with the great makeup from joya beauty. She's not giving up, she is going back for another shot in March. We are routing for you.

Spring trends

Think Spring!
I wanted to share these soft, fresh hair trends for the spring. You could use these ideas to freshen up your everyday look. Instead of a pony tail, try a soft, loose braid, with bangs or without.
If you are looking for a casual bridal style to fit your venue or wedding location, think about some of these looks as an option.

Grace Ormond Bridal Show

Grace Ormond celebrated her 24th year of bridal shows this year. I had the opportunity to work with these lovely models to create their New york runway inspired looks. It was so much fun to work all them. Jenn Macek of Satix Salon in Dover helped me with these looks, while Joanne McDonough of joya beauty and Kathy MacDonald of Beliza salon worked their magic with their makeup. Most of these women have modeled for this show for years and are very passionate about returning every year. They have fun and it shows! They all look great
Runway is so much Fun and something we don't get to do everyday!
thanks to Mathew wagner for his great photos!

The Retreat ant Franche's Point, Jillian and Fowler

Jillian and Flowler celebrated in September at the Retreat at French's Point in Stockton Spring, ME and they had such great weather. I joined Jillian and her bridal party the day before their wedding for a relaxing spa day. Jillian wanted to look her best for her rehearsal celebration of southern BBQ,complete with cowboy boots and all. The day of her wedding she and her bridal party filtered in and out of the beauty room while enjoying Jillian's bridal brunch. Such a relaxed morning and great way to start her day of celebration!
