Bri: Owner, Make-up Artist/Hair Stylist

I first began styling hair in the San Francisco Bay Area. After graduating cosmetology school, I trained under master stylists developing my  technical skills, & creative artistry for 3 years.  I then moved up to Portland, and began styling hair on my own exclusively at Aveda salons in the Portland metro area. After working in salons for 8 years, in order to have more flexibility (after having my second baby boy) I decided to leave the salon. I began working in my home salon, and on location for weddings.

    After working weddings exclusively for several years,   I founded the Portland Makeup & Hair team in 2012.  We are an award winning team of incredibly skilled & personable artists.  The company continues to be featured in several magazines,   win awards, grow & thrive every year.

 I continue my education attending top hair classes, shows, & conventions each year.   I have a passion for making brides feel elegant, classy, & fashionable- yet still themselves- on their special day.

I have been a professional cosmetologist for over 18 years, and absolutely love working in the wedding industry. I love what I do, and even better- I often get to work with some really amazing artists & friends!
