Hair & Makeup Artist
Specialty: retro-inspired, modern romance, elevated natural looks
Hometown: Sarasota, FL
Beauty background: I’ve been doing weddings, events, shoots and productions as a professional makeup artist and hair stylist since 2015. I got my Esthetics license right out of high school, and then my Cosmetology license in 2019. I jumped into bridal after meeting a makeup artist in Esthetics school who gave me a job connection, and I feel very lucky to have been a full-time freelancer ever since. I was originally based in Tampa, working all over Florida and the Southeast for 4 years and doing primarily bridal work. In 2019 I moved from Florida to Los Angeles where I branched out into a previously-unknown love, production. Since moving to LA, in addition to working on set, I’ve continued my work in bridal. I’ve always felt very fortunate to get to be involved in my brides’ big days, but it really hit home for me in March of 2022, when I got married myself and saw the experience from a bride’s perspective. The getting ready process is so special — it totally sets the tone for the rest of the day, and I love getting to be a part of such an intimate moment as the hours before getting married.
Favorite thing about my job: the creative collaboration between myself and the client. Special shoutout to the look on a bride’s face when you’ve nailed the look. It’s impossible to fake, and it feels like a home run every time I see it.
Career highlights: getting to cover 90s icon Alyssa Milano head to toe in blood, Carrie-style, for a movie.
Current favorite bridal trends: effortless, undone, less-is-more takes on classics, especially updos. Polished, all-down hair for a wedding. 70s vibes.
Top 3 products/tools you can’t live without: The forever workhorse, a 1-inch curling iron. Kristen Ess texture paste. Kenra 25 hairspray.
Guilty pleasures: Trader Joe’s Joe-Joe’s and lazy days playing video games.
Savannah did my hair and makeup for a trial and our wedding and it was perfect! My hair has a hard time holding a curl, but with Savannah's skill my hair held the curl through rain, 20mph winds, and dancing all night! Savannah incorporated braids and flowers into my hairstyle even better than I could have imagined! I completely loved my makeup as well; I have very sensitive skin, but Savannah was able to create the most beautiful look without any irritation! Savannah is also one of the sweetest, most genuine people I have ever met! I am very grateful for her talent; she made the wedding way less stressful knowing hair and makeup would be perfect! Savannah even fixed a nail break that happened one day before our wedding on the middle finger next to the ring finger; she is clearly awesome at everything she does!
Savannah was absolutely amazing for my wedding! We did a run-through a few months before and she listened to every single detail and made sure I looked exactly the way I wanted. I don't wear makeup, so I wanted to look as natural as possible and she absolutely nailed it. I hired her to stay with me from before the wedding until right before the reception for touch-ups and she was on it! It was really hot and she made sure any touch ups needed for the photographs were done efficiently and effortlessly. She was so kind and actually helped with a few wedding details that didn't have anything to do with makeup! I recommended her to two (2) of my friends that attended my wedding who are getting married and would highly recommend her for any occasion!
My wedding coordinator recommended Savannah to me, and it was such a great experience! As an out-of-state bride, communication was very important to me, and I was blown away by her responsiveness. I was able to make it into town for a trial, and Savannah did such an amazing job. She listened to everything I said and made me feel like a princess. On the actual day, she and her assistant makeup artist were right on time and finished with time to spare! We had them to the hair and makeup for all of my bridesmaids, my MIL and my mother, and everyone looked and felt amazing! My own makeup and hair was perfect, and lasted the entire night, including through my many tears and dancing. I can't recommend them enough!
