Guys, we only have two artists left in the CT wedding hair and makeup artist series! Time flies when you’re having fun! This series is our way of helping you get to know each of our artists a little bit before you book them for the most important day of your life. We want it to feel like you are hiring your best friend! The artist we are going to introduce you to today has been with KiSSandMaKeUp for almost 4 years, one of our first artists! Meet Amber, the KiSSandMaKeUp Braid Queen!
Amber didn’t always have her sights set on being a hair stylist but did enjoy consistently changing up her hair in high school. It wasn’t until she lived through every girl’s nightmare, when she hated her hair-do for her junior prom, that she realized she did have the talent to become a professional stylist. After her bad junior prom experience, Amber took matters into her own hands for her senior prom. For her senior prom, not only did she do her own extensions, but she also styled her hair and one of her friend’s hair as well.
It was her success with her senior prom hair that solidified her decision. Realizing she had a knack, and an added extra push from her mother, Amber enrolled in the International Institute of Cosmetology right after her High School graduation. She graduated with her license in 2012. Over the course of her career, she has become obsessed with all things bridal and braids (especially the boho kind). Amber is always practicing to make sure her skills are sharp since she is aware that trends change year to year. She began working for KiSSandMaKeUp almost four years ago and at this point, she is a seasoned vet when it comes to bridal hair styling.
Amber loves being able to start a brides wedding day off on the right foot. She knows how the wrong hairdo can ruin your day, so she takes extra precaution when listening to what her brides want. With her talent and how great she is at listening to and creating the bride’s vision, we are proud Amber represents the KiSSandMaKeUp team. With every single bride, Amber promises to create the hairstyle they dreamed of, exactly the way they imagined it – because she knows how a bad hair style can ruin an event before it even starts. She never wants a bride to feel that way!
When Amber isn’t working with brides to turn their dream into a reality, she loves kayaking, crafts and thrift shopping. She also enjoys taking her cats for walks. When she is trying to unwind after a weekend full of weddings, she is either listening to Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran or watching Game of Thrones (then again, who isn’t?).
