  • Our Team

    Lana Elguera

    Lead Makeup Artist

    I’ve been a certified Makeup Artist for 8 years. I worked freelance for several years doing weddings, special ev
    ents, photo shoots, and fashion shows, before working at Sephora for 3 years.
    However, makeup's been my passion since I can remember. I love making people feel beautiful in their own skin. I never want to cover up a persons face with makeup. I artistically enhance her natural beauty, so that when she looks in the mirror she sees the best version of herself and not the makeup..

    Married for 10 years to my best friend.
    Love to travel
    I’m a huge Foodie.
    My obsession is Coffee.
    I feel so Blessed to be able to do what I love as a career!

    Clarise Huffor

    Lead Hairstylist

    Cut & Colorist

    I have had the pleasure of working in the beauty industry for the last 12 years. I found my passion for styling hair while working with 'Dry Bar' in Los Angeles, Ca. That was where I found the art of a smoothing blow dry.


    I moved to the Palm Springs, ca area in 2012 and found that the bridal and event industry in my new city was up and coming. Ever since then I have used my skills in hair styling for brides, engagement and event shoots, and of course Coachella & Stagecoach Festers.


    I always make it my goal to achieve the style that my client envisions for their day.


    **I also provide cut and color services which you can see on my insta @hair_by_clarisemarie

  • Bridal Trial Preparation

    Trials are where we meet for the first time and go over styles and looks you've chosen and put them to the test.

    You may love the photo you found online, now is the time to see how it looks on you. Once we've found your perfect bridal look, photos are taken as a reference which we bring with us on the wedding day.

    This is crucial to making sure everything runs smoothly on your wedding day... no surprises.



    Please come with freshly washed hair, do not flat iron or use any hair products. You want your hair to be as natural as possible.

    For makeup trial, come with freshly washed face, following your typical skincare routine.


    Inspiration Photos

    Bring photos of hair and/or makeup ideas. As well as a picture of your wedding dress. This will give us a perfect place to start in providing exactly the look you envision for your wedding day.


    Hair Extensions

    Bring clip in hair extensions if you want to use on the wedding day; they should be cut as we do not do this at the trial. There is a $20 charge for the use and placement of extensions



    Bring any hair accessories (veil, combs, jeweled pins, etc) that you may have and will be wearing on the day of the wedding.



    Please mention any product allergies or sensitivities you may have prior to your trial run date. We want to ensure that we are able to provide products that will not cause irritation if sensitive.

  • The next step to securing your wedding day/ event

    Once confirmed, we will prepare and send a service agreement that will explain how to pay your retainer. Our team will officially be yours for your day once the signed agreement and retainer have been completed and received.
