About

Hey there! My name is Whitney, I am born and raised from Lima, Ohio. I grew up always having a creative mind, doing anything artsy. I am a self taught braider at the age of 7 or 8 and I remember the day when I was in middle school I learned how to french braid my own hair. I guess you could say i’ve just always had the hair gene in me!

Anyway, I love helping people build confidence, and i’m always hoping I can make someone love their hair to where their reaction is just “amazed” at how much they love it!!

I moved out to Lancaster, PA in Feb of 2012! I wanted a fresh new beginning and I found a salon that was the right fit for me at the time. I knew I wanted my main focus to be with Bridal hair. In 2015 I created my instagram so I could have an online portfolio of all my work. I utilized hashtags and tried to practice updos on my co-workers whenever I had a break so I could get my name out there. I soon became the Bridal Updo Expert and started to teach small classes in 2017 and it just grew from there!

I have two dogs! Perry and Roscoe! (a mini golden doodle + mini bernedoodle!) I’m definitely a dog lover!!

Random fact about me is that I love to crochet!

My hobby is gardening! I love planting flowers, some veggies, but also I love propagating new plants and giving them away lol!! If ya need any plants just lmk, I’ll most likely give you one!!

I was a nominee in Wella's Trend Vision Regional hairshow in 2016 + 2017 and a 2019 Judge for the BEA Hair Awards. 2017 I was inducted into the Hot Tools Hall of Fame . July of 2019 I was a Judge for the Bridal Hair category for the #BEA Awards in LA! I am a 6 year Nominee for Behindthechair #Oneshot Hair Awards, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2021, 2022, 2023. A 2 year Nominee for Cosmoprofs #Licensedtocreate Awards in 2018 & 2019. In 2023 I wont educator of the year at the Beyond The Ponytail bridal hair awards!

I now have my own studio where its just me! Ive been on my own for 5 years now and I love it where I’m at!

I take a limited amount of weddings a year, because I also teach classes that im traveling for! I love what I do and I hope to make your boho wedding dream hair come true!! Please send your inquiry via e-mail to wb.upstyles@gmail.com

Whitney is the BEST!

Whitney did myself and my bridal party’s hair for my wedding day and she was nothing short of amazing. Whitney was a pleasure to work with from the start/first booking with her through my wedding day; she truly is such a sweet person! I feel that it’s needless to say how beyond talented she is, her work truly speaks for itself. I loved my wedding day hair and received so many compliments on it and my bridesmaids and the mothers’ loved their hair as well. Whitney is the absolutely best possible option and I couldn’t be happier to have had the privilege of getting to work with her! Thank you, Whitney!

Whitney is THE BEST!!

I was recently married Oct 2023. Whitney did my hair as well as my bridal party’s (7) and she did such an amazing job! Everyone wanted a different style and she completely nailed it…everyone looked so beautiful! I received so many compliments, and it still looked perfect by the end of the night! Not to mention she is just the sweetest. Whitney has so much talent and passion for updos and it shows, I would highly recommend!
