About Me

Hi, I’m Emily!


First, thank you for being here an considering me for your special day! I’ve been practicing for your wedding hair since the young age of four. My great grandma was a hair stylist, and I grew up inspired to do the same thing. When I was four years old, I started playing around with everyone's hair (or anyone who would let me), taught myself how to braid when I was young, and by the time I was a young teenager, I dreamt of doing hair for a living. I started with cut and color, but decided to move into bridal because I've always had a love for styling hair and showing my creativity that way. Now, I am more than 5 years into my bridal business and I can't wait to help you feel your best on your wedding day! I’m here to artfully style your hair and help create your vision come to life on what’s sure to be one of the best days of your life.

Love Notes

"Emily was so responsive, kind, accommodating, professional, and talented. I was recommended by two different people I know to go with Emily for my bridal hair for my wedding and I am so incredibly happy I did. She made myself and my sisters feel so incredibly beautiful. I’ve never felt so flawless in my life. Emily you have so much talent and everyone should know just how incredible you are. Thank you for providing such great service and for giving myself, my sisters (my bridesmaids) and my mom the hair styles we’ve always wanted!"

Highly recommend booking Emily if you can! What a joy to work with for my wedding. We ended up doing two hair trials because I decided to change my look and Emily was super accommodating. She was very professional and quick to respond to my many emails. She did 8 peoples hair the day of my wedding, all herself, and everyone was very happy with their hair. I was beyond impressed with how well everyone’s hair stayed throughout the night and into the morning. Thank you Emily for everything!! A wonderful vendor to book."

If you need a sign to book Emily for your bridal hair…look no further. Never in my life have I felt more beautiful and magical, and Emily is to thank for it!! I think I got complimented on my hair more than anything my wedding day and night. I was so sad to take it out, honestly I wish I could have lived the rest of my life in it. Besides her talent, Emily is THE SWEETEST. Seriously she is so warm and caring about her clients it’s a breath of fresh hair. Emily, thank you for everything!!!!

Cannot recommend Emily enough for bride and bridal party hair! With having a Covid wedding last year, so many changes came about including having to change our wedding date. Because of this, my original hair stylist was not available. She highly recommended Emily to me and showed me her amazing work. I was sold instantly and signed a contract with her immediately no questions asked! She blew me away with her talent for my trial and then top it and left me SPEECHLESS with my hair for the wedding day. It was absolutely perfect and exceeded all my expectations. She was so sweet and understanding through the process and changes due to Covid and truly made my bridal hair dreams come true. Thank you so much Emily, you will forever be my go to stylist
