My name is Miriam; and since I can remember, I have always had a deep love for doing hair, even as a child! As I grew up, I decided to pursue my love for hair; and I knew that Bridal Hairstyling was the perfect fit. I studied Beginner & Advanced Bridal Hairstyling & Makeup Application courses at Glow Academy to kick off my career, followed by attending Hair & Makeup Masterclasses to continue my education.

My favourite part of the job is making all you beauties feel your best selves, and feel confident & pretty. Let’s have fun, get glammed up, and make the best of your special day! I can’t wait to work with you this season!

Cara | Hairstylist

I’m Cara and I have been fortunate enough to be in the hair and beauty industry for over a decade now. I love all aspects of doing hair but up styling gives me the opportunity to be truly creative and do something new every time. Creating a look the bride has envisioned is one of the most rewarding feelings and being a part of someone’s special day gives me joy knowing I played a role in that!

Tina | Hairstylist

My name is Tina and I have been a licensed hairstylist pursuing my passion in the beauty industry for 10 years now. Continued growth, my creative drive and my love for hair has evolved into the bridal industry and it has brought me so much joy to be a part of these special moments in life. I specialize in soft and textured updos, waves and braids. Capturing a bride’s vision and watching her radiate beauty from the inside out is the biggest reward! When I’m not styling hair I am spending time with my amazing husband and kids.

Sara | Makeup Artist

Hi, I’m Sara! I have almost a decade of experience as a professionally trained and certified makeup artist. During this time, I have honed my artistry skills working in retail makeup, freelancing, and on photoshoots, but found my true passion was bridal makeup! I love being a part of my bridal clients’ most important day as their makeup artist. My signature bridal makeup style is soft glam. I love to enhance my clients natural beauty and radiance whether that be something more natural or more glamorous. The best feeling for me as a makeup artist is when my clients look in the mirror and see how truly beautiful they are!

Melly | Hairstylist

My name is Melly and I’ve been working in the beauty industry for almost a decade now with a special love for hair! I love re-creating your inspirations with my own added twist and truly believe a positive environment with mutual trust is the key to bringing your vision to life. I’ve built a strong knowledge and foundation for my specialty. Having graduated from a Vidal Sassoon Academy, I continued my education through Europe and Turkey, eventually becoming an educator myself. I participated in multiple fashion shows and became a semi-finalist in the Canadian Hairdressers Awards twice.

Heather | Hairstylist

I’m Heather, a licensed hairstylist and have been specializing in bridal hair for half of my decade-long hairstyling career. Hairstyling is my passion and my creative escape. There is nothing I love more than glamming up a bridal party with spice girls blasting and mimosas flowing. The most rewarding part about this job is the feeling of pure magic when a bride looks in the mirror and LOVES her hair! I was born and raised in Scotland, and now live in Ontario with my soon-to-be hubby. When I’m not doing hair, I am busy being a (self-proclaimed) Super Auntie to my favourite little humans and planning my own wedding!

Ellie | Hair & Makeup

My name is Ellie and I’m excited to be a part of the Team! I’ve loved playing with hair and makeup from as early as four years old. As I got older, I started to fine tune my craft by attending Master Classes to learn from established stylists. I fell in love with bridal hair and makeup back in 2014 and never looked back! My passion is driven by my creativity and I am experienced with all hair and skin types. I specialize in curls/waves, braids, upstyles, and my ‘soft glam’ makeup approach allows the client to still look like themselves, while bringing out their best features.

KC | Makeup Artist

As a makeup artist, I’ve been lucky enough to have the trust of thousands of humans to allow me to create the perfect look for them. From hundreds of weddings to backstage at the Juno’s, Canadian Screen Awards or the Canadian Country Music Awards it brings me such joy to help people feel like the best version of themselves on their most important day.  As a multi-disciplinary artist, I am self-taught in makeup and hair (as well as tattooing and nails but that’s a different story!). I can’t wait to meet all the Freebird Brides and have the most fun with y’all!

Maryanne | Hairstylist

My name is Maryanne and ever since I was a little girl I loved to style my dolls’ hair. My Barbies always looked amazing and I never wanted their hair to look out of place. As I studied, practiced and trained over the last 10 years in the salon behind the chair, I always had a passion for updos and formal styles. My favourite part about my job is being a part of a bride’s wedding day. Creating a bride’s dream look and making them feel so special and beautiful is the best feeling ever.

Ferial | Hair & Makeup

My name is Ferial, a professional makeup artist and hair stylist with more than 6 years experience. I love my job and when I do makeup, I get so immersed in my work and enjoy it as if I am painting on a canvas. Always looking to create a beautiful look according to your taste and choice. I do bridal, fashion and special occasion makeup! We are all beautiful, but when someone comes to me looking to be more beautiful, whether with natural makeup or full-glam makeup, I am very happy with this sense of trust, which may play an important role in the most important day of a bride’s life or special occasion.

Erin | Makeup Artist

My name is Erin and I’ve been doing make up for over 10 years. I specialize in all skin tones and no matter if you want soft glam or full glam, I can help bring your vision to life!

Vanessa | Hairstylist

Hi my name is Vanessa. I’m a mom of two and I have worked in the hair industry for about 10 years. I started off in a salon and can do anything from cut to colour, but my passion is styling. I even did myself and 8 of my bridesmaids’ hair for my own wedding! I love creating updos and would consider my style very boho chic, however, I can provide any look the bride has decided on. Looking forward to working with all the brides and their parties!

Jessenia | Makeup Artist

My name is Jessenia and I love all things beauty! I have been a certified Makeup Artist for 8 years. I started my journey in the beauty industry through fitness competitions. I worked alongside athletes for photoshoots and competitions for over 4 years. During this time I also worked with Mac, Morphe, Vasanti all while doing some bridal work in the background. I decided to switch my focus to bridal after discovering the importance of complexion. My goal is to make every client that sits in my chair feel beautiful and confident in their own skin by enhancing it rather than covering it up.
