Time for another vendor spotlight!! This time we sat down with an awesome makeup artist we have had the pleasure of working with countless times, Haley, Thee Makeup Girl! Haley has her own studio in Old Sacramento, so she can do trials and meetings at her office as well as travel to you for the wedding day!
“My passion for makeup and hair began at an early age. I became a licensed Cosmetologist in 2010, and soon after began to work alongside some wonderful artists, on film sets, behind the scenes in theatre, and of course countless weddings, proms, special events etc. I was featured on Good Day Sacramento and my work has been on the cover and published in Sacramento Bride and Groom Mag. I have received training from Paul Mitchell, private classes and worked for 3 different makeup brands. I am constantly pushing myself to learn new techniques and skill sets within the beauty industry so I am up to date with the latest trends.”
We asked Haley all about the in’s an out’s of Hair and Makeup and this is what she explained!

Can you accommodate hair/makeup for the whole bridal party?
Yeah! I can handle up to 4 people by myself, or if I bring along an assistant up to 10. When figuring out how many people want services done, always make sure to ask for help with the timeline to make sure each person has the right amount of time!
- Do you do destination weddings?
Of course!! Would love to come along to your destination and make you look and feel amazing!
What comes in your Hair and Makeup Packages?
I always take care of my clients! All of my packages come with a set of false lashes for the day of, an extra gloss/balm to take with you in a cute care package, a trial for the bride, and I always use cruelty free products!
When we talked a little bit more about WHY you should have your hair and makeup done, its kind of crazy how often people disregard this aspect of the day. If we can give you any advice from a photographers point of view, having your hair and makeup done does so much more than just makes you look great the day of, here are some pointers to consider!
Feel beautiful inside and out
High quality products that will last the full day and look flawless
Feel less stressed and at ease from the beginning of the day to the end
A professional who understands different skin-tones and can accommodate change/tans etc.
Gives a flawless and cohesive look to your wedding attire and overall vibe!
