About Vinspire

Destinee Cushing founded Vinspire as a licensed hair and makeup artist with a passion for vintage hair styling and makeup looks. Her love for all things vintage developed when she joined a swing dancing club in college and the more involved she became in dancing, the more she fell in love with the looks of the swing music era.

She is based in Midtown, Manhattan and works as a full-time freelance hair and makeup artist. Destinee loves making dreams come true for weddings, photoshoots, video shoots, and special events. Her attention to detail and thorough consultations will ensure that you and your wedding party will have the looks you always wanted for your special day, whether it's vintage-inspired or modern.

If your wedding party is large or your time is limited, she can also reach out to her extensive network of trusted hair and makeup artists to make sure everyone gets taken care of!

    Wonderful experience!

    Destinee's talents were perfect for me and my bridal party. She was a very calming presence and was able to give us exactly what we wanted. Couldn't recommend her services more!

    Thank you so much, Lulu! You were a wonderfully chill bride, and even though your wedding party was full of lots of friends who clearly love you, it wasn't chaotic at all getting everyone ready that morning. I hope you are doing well!

    An incredible experience

    Destinee was the perfect person to do my hair and makeup on my wedding day. We did a trial beforehand and she immediately understood the style I was going for. I had grown my hair out for my wedding with the express interest of having vintage waves to match my deco-style dress, but as someone who normally sports a shaved head I had little practice doing my own hair so Destinee's expertise was vital. She made sure my makeup matched the style but still felt like me, which was hugely important. I felt gorgeous! She also did my mother, mother-in-law, sister, and sister-in-law's hair and makeup on the wedding day, singlehandedly. They have a range of hair lengths and textures and she was able to handle all of it! Everyone looked incredible. I sometimes feel as though people at weddings can end up looking unlike themselves when makeup artists and hair stylists choose to do everyone exactly the same without taking into account their unique features, but that was never a worry with Destinee. I don't know how she was able in such a short time to feel out everyone's individual looks and incorporate that into the style theme, but I was very impressed and happy that my family looked like a more glamorous version of themselves!
    Destinee was on time, responsive to messages, and a pleasure to work with. I definitely recommend her!

    It was such a pleasure doing the hair and makeup for your wedding, Erin! I loved your vintage style dress, veil, and fingerwaves especially! You looked like a vintage dream.

    I have to say, even though it was a lot of services to perform, your family was so kind, funny, and made me feel like I was just getting to hang out with a cool group of people. I also really appreciated the coffee!

    Everyone at your wedding was uniquely beautiful, so I wanted to do my best to showcase everyone's individual style with their hair and makeup looks for the day. I hope you are doing well, and maybe I'll see you at the Jazz Age Lawn Party when it happens again!

My name is Destinee Cushing, and I’m a professional hairstylist, barber and makeup artist living in New York City. As a professional swing dancer, I came to love all things vintage, especially vintage hair styles. I do vintage and modern hair and makeup for weddings, bridal fashion shows, photo shoots, video shoots, and special events.

I've been helping brides achieve their hair and makeup visions for over eight years now. I'd love to do the same for you and your wedding party!
