Heather is absolutely incredible! I have had two or three bad experiences with getting my hair and make up done before her and when I met her I voiced my concerns and she vowed to give me a better experience. When we did my first trial for my wedding hair and make up , she constantly ask me if I liked what was happening and asked for my input. She even offered me a second trial for free just in case I wasn’t happy. But I so was!!! She absolutely exceeded my expectations in every way and I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. Heather is multi talented and can do your make up, style your hair, cut your hair, and give product advice like no one’s business. Not only that, but she is such a fun person and so full of life.One of the best parts of working with her is how sweet and bubbly she is :-) I can’t wait until I need my hair or make up done again! Thank you Heather for making my wedding hair and make up experience wonderful from start to finishSent on 10/30/2017

Glam Wedding Hair and Makeup
I loved working with Heather and Tiff for my wedding hair and makeup. I was looking for something classy with a bit of old Hollywood style with a bold but natural look on the makeup, and they delivered just what I was hoping for! They were amazing, and I felt so glamorous and beautiful for my wedding!Sent on 06/25/2019

Amazing ladies on my wedding day
Shade and Strand was great on my wedding day! All the ladies in my party had a great time getting ready and chatting with Heather. She made everyone feel comfortable from the moment she walked in the door. She is so much fun and professional she did everyone hair exactly as they envisioned and the whole experience was amazing.Sent on 04/28/2019
