About Beautiful Brides Philly

Luxury, on-location hair and makeup services for bridal parties and all special occasions.

Beautiful Brides Philly understands that a wedding is one of the most important days of a woman's life. It is a time when a bride can express herself in the most unique way. Our team of experts know exactly how to translate your personal vision into reality and create your unique wedding day look. Dana Persia, owner and founder of this award-winning company, has assembled a bridal beauty team that brings the salon to YOU on your wedding day. There is no traveling, no hassle and no worries. No party is too large and because we employ so many talented stylists, we can book multiple weddings on any given day--including Saturdays.

The BBP Process

Your personal hair and makeup consultation and trial takes place at BBP’s cozy South Philadelphia “retro” studio, where you and your guests are surrounded by black and white photos of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren and other style icons of their time. During your consultation, our stylists cater only to you, unlike a traditional salon experience. We listen to what YOU want directing and guiding you along the way with the result of transforming you into the most "beautiful bride."

One to two weeks prior to the big day, we put together a complete timeline for you and your party, so it's one less thing for you or your planner to worry about. On your wedding day, the BBP team will arrive at your location with a full array of hair and makeup professional products and tools ready to beautify the bride and her party. This convenient, personalized service allows you to get ready at home, the hotel, the ceremony site or venue or anywhere you choose. When your team comes directly to you rather than you having to visit a salon, it minimizes stress, saves time, and allows you and your wedding party to relax, be pampered, be beautiful, and have fun.

Our Services:


•a personal, one-on-one consultation and trial where photo ideas and your overall wedding theme (colors, attire, embellishments, head piece, etc.) are discussed and used as a guide to create your unique wedding day look

•traditional and airbrush makeup complete with false lashes if needed (strip and individual)

•top-line makeup products like Laura Mercier, Makeup Forever, MAC, Smashbox, Beauty Addicts, Urban Decay, Ben Nye, and many others, along with primers, bonders and setting sprays to ensure optimum all-day coverage and staying power


•the latest techniques and trends in formal hair styling

•professional-grade products and styling tools

•styling of clip-in extensions along with placement into chosen hair style (Note:  We DO NOT cut or color extensions and suggest that if they do need trimming that you have that done by your personal stylist before your trial.)

•day-of blow-outs and roller sets

•placement of veil, flowers and any other hair accessories/embellishments for all bridal party members

About the Owner

In 2010, Dana made a decision to re-brand the mobile makeup component of her growing image consulting business, DP Image Consulting, and launch Beautiful Brides Philly. Focusing on the bridal beauty market, in less than three years, she grew her on-location hair and makeup business from a one-person operation—herself a trained esthetician and makeup artist--to a staff of over 15 stylists. In December 2011, BBP received the distinction of being named Fox Small Business Center's "Small Business of the Day." Today BBP serves an average of 120-plus clients per year, growing into a profitable, six-figure business.  BBP's bridal work has been featured numerous times on Style Me Pretty and Green Wedding Shoes, two of the industry's top bridal blogs. 

An accomplished business professional with over 25 years of corporate marketing, PR and sales experience, Dana combined a college degree from Rutgers University, her business acumen, an education in esthetics from Jean Madeline in Philadelphia and a passion for beauty and created a business she loves and grows each and every day.

Dana has worked as a makeup artist for NBC’s 10! Show, Lifetime’s “The Fairy Jobmother," and also worked as a lead makeup artist with Philadelphia Fashion Week. She is a freelance makeup artist with HDNet's concert series, working with Gavin Rossdale and the band Bush as well as Ted Nugent. Lastly, Dana has also provided makeup services for Heather Blaine Mitts,  an American former professional soccer defender and a three-time Olympic gold medalist and member of the U.S. women's national team.

I hired Beautiful Brides Philly to do hair and makeup services for me, my bridesmaids, and the MOB and MOG for my wedding and I could not be more happy I did so! From the trial through packing up day-of, Dana and her stylists were so professional, courteous, friendly, and enthusiastic. Not to mention so so talented!! Every one of my girls LOVED their hair and makeup--one so much she hired Beautiful Brides to do her own wedding this fall. My mom told me she hasn't felt so beautiful in years. And I was so happy with how Dana and Elisa listened to what I wanted and really truly brought it to life. Would absolutely recommend!

Beautiful Brides Philly were AMAZING to work with! Dana was incredible friendly, easy to work with, and professional from the trial all the way to the wedding day. Most importantly, my bridesmaids and I were SO happy with the way our hair and makeup turned out! Each of the stylists listened to us in terms of what we were looking for with our hair and makeup and exceeded our expectations. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
