We’re back with our TEAM Spotlight series…Hooray! This round we have the distinct pleasure of featuring TEAM Co-Director, Primary Makeup Artist, and THM Hair Extensions‘ Partner, Nicole I.

Nicole’s intelligence and stellar professionalism comes through in her beautiful makeup artistry, offering unsurpassed looks time and again. Read on to find out what her favorite on-site wedding location is and what she would tell her 13 year old self…

What do you like best about the age you are now? I love my 30’s. Every year I grow more comfortable in my skin and more settled into all aspects of my crazy my life! I wouldn’t wish to be back in my 20’s. I definitely had a blast but I’m happy to look back at those wild memories and see how far I’ve come!

What advice do you wish you could give your 13 year old self? Just trust everything will fall into place exactly as it is supposed to! And wear SPF 50 every day because they will turn into sunspots before you know it!!

What is the most exciting thing about your work industry? There are so many exciting aspects of my job; from fashion weeks, to visiting beautiful destinations all over the world, but the most exciting part of my job is meeting so many cool, strong, funny, interesting, independent  women.

 Your favorite on-site wedding location is… San Ysidro Ranch
When you’re not working, what do you love to do the most? When I’m not working I am spending time with my family and having early evening dance parties with my husband, 4 year daughter and 5 month old son!
Go-to song/TV show/movie…Homeland, 60 minutes (because I’m a grandma at heart)
If you could work on any wedding anywhere in the world, where would it be? Bali- it is my most favorite place in the world so any excuse to go back time and time again I am down!
Thank you, Nicole! Want to see more of her work? Follow her new Instagram!

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Hair and Makeup Stylist Chelsea

TEAM Hair and Makeup stylist Chelsea

In a sea of hair and makeup stylists, few have the talent in both hair and makeup that TEAM’s Primary Stylist Chelsea exudes.  A straight shooter, fun and easy going, she’s also our most frequent traveling artist. Read on to find out what her advice would be for her 13 year old self, the value of loving our adult selves, and what she craves in her down time…

TEAM title: Bridal Hair and Makeup Artist 
 
1. What do you like best about the age you are now? I like that I’ve stopped caring about other people’s opinions about me. In middle and high school my identity was heavily influenced by what other people thought- I feel much more at home in my own skin and confident as I get older. 
TEAM Hair and Makeup stylist Chelsea
2. What advice do you wish you could give your 13 year old self? Nothing that feels like a big deal right now is actually a big deal at all. 
3. What is the most exciting thing about your work industry? I love that beauty is extremely conceptual and variable. I love talking to people, and it’s very cliche for a stylist to say this , however, I love making people feel good about themselves. We’re currently a very sensitive community and constantly comparing ourselves to other people – especially with our cultural addiction to social media – I like making people feel in love with who they already are. 
TEAM Hair and Makeup stylist Chelsea
4. Your favorite on-site wedding location is… I love Napa Valley + Santa Barbara for the beautiful, lush landscapes 
5. When you’re not working, you love to do…the most. cook, read, write, travel, call my grandmother & hang out with my love + 2 cats
TEAM Hair and Makeup stylist Chelsea
6. Go-to song/TV show/movie… Song: Bring it on Home to Me – Sam Cooke | TV show: The Pizza Show on Viceland | Movie : Thelma and Louise 
7. If you could work on any wedding anywhere in the world, what would it be? Sicily + the South of France
Thank you so much, Chelsea…We love having you as part of our TEAM! Follow along on our  TEAM Instagram and on Chelsea’s Instagram for more inspiring peeks!

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Stylist and Makeup Educator Marla N.

Welcome to round two of our TEAM Spotlight series (see Kita’s here!), showcasing our Primary Stylists who, if you don’t already know them, you’ll love as much as we do! As one of TEAM’s Primary Stylists, Marla is also our Makeup Educator. And for good reason. She knows makeup. Better yet, Marla’s finely skilled artistry masterfully tunes into each bride’s and model’s unique natural beauty. The results are nothing short of transformative and beautifully inspiring. Today Marla shares her favorite on-site wedding location and her go-to when she’s not working…

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Stylist and Makeup Educator Marla N.

What do you like best about the age you are now?
At 25, I like that I am young but old enough that people take me more seriously.

 

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Stylist and Makeup Educator Marla N.

What advice do you wish you could give your 13 year old self?
Stay true to your passions and interests even when people in your life try to steer you away. Listen to your heart.

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Stylist and Makeup Educator Marla N.

What is the most exciting thing about your work industry?
Being able to travel to new and beautiful places. As well as getting to meet new people and share their most special day with them.

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Stylist and Makeup Educator Marla N.

Your favorite on-site wedding location is…
Malibu Rocky Oaks

Go-to song/TV show/movie…
I don’t have just one song, show, or movie that is my go-to. I love all forms and kinds. One of my favorite things to do is watch YouTube. Here I can watch all my favorite shows, listen to music, and learn all kinds of new things. Youtube Is my go-to because there is a vast array of content and I can access it on my own time.
If you could work on any wedding anywhere in the world, what would it be?
This is such a hard question because there are so many places in the world I would love to visit. If I were to come up with a top 3 (in no particular order) it would be: France, Japan, England. These are 3 countries I haven’t been to that are on my bucket list.
Thanks, Marla!

TEAM Primary Hair Stylist and Hair Educator

Welcome to our TEAM Spotlight series, friends! Here’s the scoop: Each month, we’ll be featuring one of our amazing Primary Stylists and showcasing their beautiful and remarkably skilled hair or makeup artistry, respectively. We’ll begin with Kita, one of TEAM’s Primary Hair Stylists, as well as our Hair Educator. With her creative drive and keen eye (and quick wit!), Kita has been invaluable in her work styling brides and runway models, alike. Here she talks about her dream wedding destination and what she would tell her 13 year old self…

 

Flutter Mag Editor's Santa Ynez butterfly wedding

What do you like best about the age you are now?
I have perspective and a little wisdom; I am comfortable with myself.  It hasn’t always been fair or easy but I am a survivor and I am proud of that. At this point it’s much easier to see it this way than it would have been 10 years ago.
Makeup's spotlight on Style Me Pretty
What advice do you wish you could give your 13 year old self?
Okay… this is a hard one because I would like to give my 13 year old self a lot of advice and maybe even a smack on the back of the head…. In all seriousness though I think I would tell myself: “Buy a lot of stock in Apple, Amazon and Google.”
What is the most exciting thing about your work industry?
I love my industry for so many reasons – we meet so many awesome and dynamic people! One thing  I especially enjoy is working in new places and crossing paths with people I may not have otherwise.  Not to mention that being part of someone’s wedding day and helping to create a lasting memory for  them is an enormous honor – I bear this in mind and it keeps me humble and thankful.

Your favorite on-site wedding location is…
OKAY — loaded question! Everywhere we go is beautiful but personally I am partial to places with natural and historic character and beauty.

When you’re not working, you love to do…the most.

Go to movie: Death Becomes Her or Point Break
happy bride
If you could work on any wedding anywhere in the world, what would it be?
