TEAM Celebrates their TV Debut Today!

By |2010-10-25T08:45:13+00:00October 25th, 2010|Featured|


Get ready for a new wedding docu-series that will be sure to get you instantly hooked!! Your’s Truly will be featured on TLC’s new reality series, Wedding Day Makeover premiere today at 2:30 PST (on HD) and 5:30 PST (regular)

Wedding Day Makeover documents as TEAM combines their expertise along with the brides own ideas for her hair and makeup. At the trial, we create two completely different wedding day looks for our bride. Then, come wedding day, the bride chooses which look she wants Mar and her TEAM to create for her to walk down the aisle. As Mar Romero, creative director of TEAM states, “The brides could ask us to pair blue eye shadow with pink lipstick and it’s our job to make them look good.”

With a slew of wedding reality shows on TV these days it’s hard to know which one to watch. For TEAM Hair and Makeup, they approach this highly publicized topic with a twist. Not only is this a series about the bride, her love story, and her wedding day look; but ultimately it’s about the bride finding her self-confidence. “For me,” Romero states, “Confidence is the purest form of beauty. If the bride feels confident about herself, her beauty will naturally reflect how she feels inside. This show has given us a national platform to showcase the importance of this confidence. It’s about infusing women with poise and self-assurance as they walk down the aisle while introducing them to a more glamorous version of themselves.”

TEAM Hair and Makeup has been filming nearly a dozen episodes of Wedding Day Makeover since TLC originally approached us over one year ago.  Below are a few sneak peek pics from behind the scences.

Don’t forget to watch US on the Season Premiere of Wedding Day Makeover on TLC today  at 2:30 (HD) or 5:30 (regular cable)

We recently got a chance to do the hair and makeup on the 2011 lookbook with the girls of Smoke & Mirrors. The duo originally met while attending Otis College of Art & Design in the late 1990’s. After Michelle launched two collections on her own and decided to move to New York & Emily became a contestant on Bravo’s 5th season of “Project Runway,” the friends decided to join forces. In the Fall of 2007, the girls launched their first women’s designer contemporary collection under the name,  Smoke & Mirrors. Ranging from bold colors to soft neutrals, to graphics and prints, these easy to wear playful pieces translate into must haves each season. Take a peak below at some of Smoke & Mirrors newest additions for Spring 2011. Enjoy!

Charlie Sheen Has A New Role: Father Of The Bride. The Two and a Half Men star beamed and snapped photos as his daughter, Cassandra Estevez, exchanged vows with childhood sweetheart Casey Huffman at Santa Barbara’s Bacara Resort and Spa on Sept. 25. “He was clearly very proud of her,” says wedding planner Jill La Fleur of La Fleur Weddings & Events, who created the lavish day inspired by a mix of nature and old Hollywood glamour. “He had a big smile on his face.” The bride, 25, who met Huffman in junior high, walked down the aisle with her dad to the tune of “Flightless Bird” from the Twilightsoundtrack, carrying a bouquet of roses and calla lilies. The couple said their non-denominational vows under a four-post altar made of birch branches and decorated with white organza, florals and crystals.

After the ceremony, the 165 guests, including Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez, gathered for a reception in the hotel’s Rotunda Room. The decor included butterflies hanging from the ceiling, mercury glass votives and deep red roses for centerpieces. The newlyweds performed their first dance to Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together.”
During the five-course meal, which included filet and shrimp, Sheen toasted his daughter and new son-in-law. “He told her how happy he was for her,” says La Fleur, “and then he teased the groom and made everyone laugh.”
