Soooo... this is a lot
Hey y’all! I am officially back behind the chair in my babe cave, and honestly it’s weird, it’s hot 😅 it’s uncomfortable. I have smacked myself in my shield a million times trying to get hair off my face lol!! Our regulations and guidelines are 13 pages of anxiety. I am doing all I can right now and trying to accommodate as many of you as I can. My assistant and I are working like crazy to assist all of our 2020 brides becoming 2021, welcoming 2021 brides for the first time, trying to support our 2020 gals who are holding on to hope they will have their special day! Our hearts are heavy. As of now July 3rd we are not legally allowed to perform makeup services which is horrific for us and our brides. We are patiently awaiting guidance and answers from NY. But realistically until masks are no longer needed we don’t see how we can offer these services. Thank you to all our brides and clients who have been so kind and supporting during this time. Thank you for sending All your new paperwork so quickly. Thank you for choosing us. Thank you for trusting us. We are so very grateful for you all. Please be kind and patient 🥰 I promise you we are doing everything as fast as possible. Hoping to be in bridal suites full of smiling unmasked faces celebrating you all soon ❤️
Happy birthday salon 52
Today marks the 10 year anniversary of Salon 52, never did I think I would be celebrating at home, but I am! I am celebrating all the incredible people who have come through the doors, sat in my chair and given me a purpose. The incredible stylists who have created magic here over the years. Salon 52 has given me a place to be myself,create, love and receive love. Taught me lessons and filled me with strength. I’ve been able to help people in dark days and celebrate with them in light. I find myself celebrating what’s to come because it will...cheers to you salon 52 and cheers to the future you will have - let the hairspray fly ❤️ to all my people thank you from the bottom of my heart. We are still unsure of an open date, I know brides that are holding on to 2020 wedding dates need trials, I know 2021 brides wanna meet us before booking, I know your roots are terrible and you are desperate please know I think of you all every day, I miss your stories in my chair I miss your love. I can’t wait to be back with you all again and catch up! In such uncertain times be kind, spread love I’ll be here when it’s time with an open chair and heart❤️
No down time!
During this uneasy time! I’m keeping busy chasing my babies around all day and I must say I’m really loving this time home with them! But also trying to be work productive the best I can! Being a mom and running a business is the most difficult balance for me! 🙈 I’ve taken a few hours each day to earn another certification im feeling quite grateful to get the time to take these courses ❤️ Missing you all and counting down the seconds I can get back to curling cutting and coloring 🤸♂️🙌
Ohhhhh how my heart explodes looking back at this experience. Having the opportunity to attend Senadas master class was such a blessing! 💕 She is my Bridal idol, unbelievable at her craft, creative, innovative and purely inspiring. First off I got to have this experience with my best gal and favorite partner to do hair with Lindsay Baxter. As working moms who are so busy we don’t know what day it is, we were pumped to spend a night snuggling snacking and laughing! We had the best time getting ready for the class and walked downstairs of the convention center and who do we find the lovely brittany Weiss! Here we all stood 3 of the top bridal artists in the hudson valley ready to take our 8 hour course! The doors open and we couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed by the incredible setup and presentation Senada and her team put together. We sat in awe watching,taking notes asking questions -front row! Number one fans! Glued to her every word. This was Extremely validating as a stylist business owner. I felt reassured my techniques and methods were on point with the best in the industry. Something I love most about Senada is that her sister is a makeup artist and they work hand and hand just like heather and I. Senadas high glam styles are simply breath taking. We got the best swag bags and got to shop goodies @kangaco had the best tool belt I’ve ever got my hands on (yes I bought 2) 👏 Having this Experience with Lindsay And brittany was so amazing and I feel truly blessed to have these women to support me and cheer me on! Coming home feeling refreshed and ready for the new season!
Our sweet sweet Sabrina! Kind caring and full of love! I mean She is a nurse! And met Heather our makeup artist at the hospital they work at (yes heather is also a full time rn!) one of her bridesmaids Michele is a dear friend and long time client of mine so to say we were pumped for this day would be an understatement! Sabrina had glam glam glam waves lips the whole bit and she was a knock out!!!!! 😍 Sabrina had a large party and each one was so sweet! Each getting a style unique to them and their style! We Loved every minute of it!

Laura and I hit it off immediately! She came in for her trial and let me tell you Laura had been through it! An insane botch job of hair extensions her makeup artist bailed on her! My heart wanted to wrap her up! So first! We made sure all the crisis was taking care of and then down to business! Laura choose this dreamy low sleek bun, we added some texture and volume to keep the romantic feel! When I arrived at nostrano vineyards to get Laura & her girls ready in the farmhouse the weather was perfection!!! I’m also obsessed with nostrano so this was a magical day for me lol! I had a blast with Laura and her girls she had 3 bridesmaids and her mom so cozy and calm. I’m used to doing large parties so it was a treat to do a few laid back gorgeous girls on such a gorgeous day in the most incredible venue! ❤️🍂 oh and to top it off the Ramsden’s walked in to photograph and Laura had her puppy there for the wedding 🐶! Likeeee seriously dream day 🍂❤️👌

Are these girls even real!!!!!! Such a blast working with this bride squad! Each and every one simply stunning! I’m a hugeeee sucker for babies breath in dark hair! Alyssa was straight out of a magazine! She’s also a hair dresser so it was a huge honor for her to choose me to make her hair dreams come true 💕
Our sweet Alyssa! You know we adore you in every way! We got to glam Alyssa and 11 others at her home ❤️ Mom set up the best area for us! Tons of natural light long tables, high and low chairs outlets and extension cords, we seriously were in heaven! These girls were ready the second we walked in! It was early and they had the music,drinks and laughs flowin! They all were so fun and sweet! We even convinced mom to have her hair down she always hates getting it done we worked with her to make sure she felt comfortable but a little more formal! And she was thrilled! For Alyssa’s hair we did a low “loose” bun gorgeous braid detail! And that clip 🙌🙌🙌🙌 I love for hair accessories!!!! For her makeup she went for clean glam! The full lash and softer lip were the perfect pair! Alyssa was an absolute knock out!

How is this my job! Hanging out glamming up some of the best chicks around! Brittany came for her trial and she showed me all these incredible large 🙌 textured buns. She has the most incredible hair naturally so I was immediately pumped! The way the pins accented the side of the bun make my heart happy! 💕 Brittany did her own makeup with the help of her gals( who btw decorated the getting ready room at the grand hotel Poughkeepsie so stinkin cute!) and let me tell ya! She nailed it! Glowy soft glam! Her whole look really came together perfectly! Are we all just swooning over the sleeves 🙌👌 Brittany thank you for trusting me with your day! It was a true honor! ❤️ Photos - Jeremiah Shaffer @iamthephotoman
