MEET THE TEAM
I'm Amy, a bridal and red carpet specialist based in Colorado and I love my job. Like, a lot.
I have always loved hair, but it took me a while to find myself doing anything with it. I was a dancer throughout childhood and went on to dance professionally. At 20 years old, I was 98% positive that I wanted to join the circus (I still haven't ruled out that possibility). A few years and a handful of injuries later, I decided that being the wigs and makeup manager for an opera house was the best way for me to stay in the performance industry (Spoiler Alert: It didn’t really work out that way), so off to cosmetology school I went.
Upon graduation from the Aveda Institute, I continued to develop my skills under celebrity makeup artist, James Ryder, in Los Angeles, California. I left the salon life in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2016 and am now focused on the Habit Extension Method and site-specific work, such as weddings, special events, and editorial or film projects. I've realized that my passion isn't limited to the art of dance, hairstyling, or makeup; but expands beyond outer beauty into the heart and soul of each woman I meet. I love that I still cry at almost every wedding whether I'm a guest or a stylist, and hope for this forever. I am so excited that you stopped by, and I truly hope that our paths cross soon. I would love to hear from you!
