I'm Amy, a licensed hair and makeup artist based in Boulder, Colorado.
I've found that not every hairstylist or makeup artist is cut out for weddings, which is why in more recent years there have become two separate industries for salon stylists and wedding stylists, with a small percentage teetering between the two. Being a wedding stylist and/or makeup artist requires a certain caliber of customer service, endurance, and ability to handle stressful timelines and different personalities with grace. I knew after doing my first wedding that I wanted to be a part of this major life event over and over again. 

I have always loved hair, but it took me a while to find myself in cosmetology school. First, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Dance and was 98% positive that I wanted to join the circus (I still haven't ruled out that possibility). 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 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 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!

Instead of going on and on about what it is like to work with me, I like to let clients speak for themselves:

Amy is excellent to work with! She did my hair for my bridal portraits and for the wedding. She was super helpful when trying to decide on a style and both times it looked amazing and stayed in place all day long. She fits right in with the bridal party and is so much fun to be around. I’d absolutely use her again and recommend her to my friends for their weddings.

She did fantastic!!! Was very welcoming with any critiques to get the exact look I was going for. Very quick with responses and even helped to provide starting points for ideas. Amy is very easy to talk to which helps make the process fun and helps take the nerves out of wedding day jitters. Took her own time to ensure the location of the venue, was there just before quoted start time and finished on time as promised. Prices are amazing for quality of work! Would highly recommend her any occasion!

Amy styled both mine and my daughter’s hair for her wedding. Oh my!! Gorgeous! We each told her what we wanted and she took it a step further! Our hairstyles were elegant - just as we envisioned! Amy was fun and efficient which gave us plenty of time for pictures. I would choose Amy again (and again) and highly recommend her!

As a photographer, it’s important to work with a dependable and personable hair and makeup stylist and Amy is a pleasure to work with! She is fun and always makes sure the client is happy! If you’re in need of a hair/makeup stylist, I highly recommend Amy!
