Going into this post I need to preface it with the fact that my knowledge base for hair and makeup is low. I have always been a tomboy, didn’t know contouring was a “thing” until I joined the wedding industry, etc. In fact, growing up, I didn’t learn anything about makeup. That being said, I appreciate the heck out of people who do love this stuff and are artists in this realm. Hence why I am writing about two talented hair and makeup artists in Houston!
So let’s dig into hair and makeup a bit. There are a lot of artists out there and they all have different styles. It’s overwhelming when looking, right? Uh yeah it is. There are some that do drama and glam like no other! Where there is a lot of glitter used, contouring and long eyelashes. Then there are others that do more of a soft/dewy look. This could be translated as more “natural” with less contouring, less eye lashes and more of a sheen on your overall face. There’s still airbrushed makeup on your face, it’s just less dramatic. And there are variations of this in between! I have chosen two hair and makeup artists who are true artists when it comes to creating a look for their brides.
Nyoka Gregory Beauty
If you have been following me for a while, you will know that I have paired a lot with Nyoka Gregory Beauty. I met her thanks to Olivia’s Bridal House, and at our first shoot together I was blown away by her talent and her bright, vivacious personality. Since then she and I have paired together on weddings, brand shoots and more. Her style is more on the dramatic side, she is a master of contouring, the smokey eye and knowing how much glitter is ‘just right’. And this isn’t to say that she can’t do soft and romantic, it’s just that her strength is in statement looks. There isn’t a single bride I have referred her to that hasn’t raved about their experience with her. I think her portfolio speaks for itself:
Sunny Hair and Makeup
Sunny is basically a perfectionist when it comes to a soft, feminine look. She adds drama with lashes and keeps the rest of the look romantic and soft. When I have brides who are wanting an effortless look to their wedding hair and makeup I tell them to talk to Sunny. We have paired together for several weddings and styled shoots, and every time I have been shook by how amazing these women look! Like Nyoka, her portfolio speaks for itself:
After reading this, are you more romantic/soft or contoured/dramatic? I love how these two talented hair and makeup artists in Houston do it so well!!
