Let's break the ice a little, shall we? Hi! I'm Victoria - a proud wife, girl's girl, dog lover and wine enthusiast. I married my delicious husband in 2016 and we have two SPCA doggies, Stella and Bailey. How did I get here? I've always had a knack for hair - ever since high school, I've been styling my friends' hair for homecoming, prom, senior pictures, you name it. Fast forward to my first time being a bridesmaid, July 2015. The bride of course was a knock out, total babe. When she came back from getting her hair styled by her normal salon, she wasn't feeling it and you could absolutely tell. I ended up tweaking it so she could feel exactly as she should - the most beautiful bride on her best day ever. I felt sad for her, I thought no bride should ever have to feel that way. It was then that I realized “hey, I do have a talent and a passion for it - why not roll with it?!” So I threw a very informal announcement out on social media, bought a hair mannequin and I booked my first official wedding a few months later. And that turned into more weddings and more happy brides, which led to more referrals and here I am! I would love nothing more than to have a wedding booked every weekend on my calendar. I LOVE everything about weddings - there’s nothing better than being able to witness people’s happiest moments, surrounded by people they love, and it makes my heart full knowing I played a tiny role on one of their best days. The best feeling is seeing a bride’s reaction when they look in the mirror, knowing how beautiful they feel and how excited they are for what’s to come. I’ve never once considered this work. So give me a shout! And allow me the honor of being a part of these special moments. Just a group of girls, having fun, hanging out and getting glam.
