About

"My true passion is imaging - helping people find their image goal and then managing the process from start to finish. I love coaching people through the process, making sure the best products are used not only for their end-all look, but also for their basic health needs. Part of this process is educating the individual to ensure the fullest understanding of the importance of using great products." – Betsy Briggs-Cathcart, Owner

    I used Betsy for my wedding hair and makeup and she is amazing!! I have been going to her to get my hair done for 13 years, so there was no question in my mind I would want her there on the biggest day of my life. I wouldn't have trusted anyone else to do it! My hair and makeup turned out better than every Pinterest picture I showed her.

    Betsy and her team did an exceptional job on my hair and makeup . From the pre-planning consultation to the day-of, everything was flawless. Betsy is so creative, willing to change hair plans the day of :) and will do whatever it takes to make sure you are happy with the outcome and feel beautiful. I would, without a doubt, recommend Studio BBC, and cannot wait for Betsy and her team to do my hair and makeup one day for my wedding.
