How did you get started in the beauty industry?

I’ve known I wanted to do hair since I was 8 years old. I have always been fascinated and inspired by everything beauty. Immediately after highschool I attended cosmetology school and worked in a salon type of environment but knew I wasn’t fully satisfied working in a salon. When I started working at Bijou Beautiful I knew I had found my calling when I began working with brides back in 2012.

What excites you the most about working with brides?

The special intimate moments I get to be a part of on a brides wedding day. That rawness is beautiful and my absolute favorite thing about getting to work with brides.

Where do you get your inspiration for the looks you create?

Mostly Pinterest, following amazing wedding hair and make-up artists through Instagram and honestly practicing on friends makes me super inspired to create my own original styles I come up with in my head for bridal looks.

Can you share an experience from a wedding that made you love your job even more?

I always love when my friends get married and they feel so honored to let me glam them up for their special days. There have been so many memorable experiences with different brides. One time I got to go to Palm Springs in this crazy large estate and it was the most relaxed fun bridal party ever. The entire family (I’m talking a good 25 people) had gathered to eat breakfast together to spend time together before the ceremony and I thought that was real cool.

What is your advice for brides?

Make sure you pick a look yourabsolutely comfortable and feel absolutely beautiful in. Don’t listen to what other people think about this because you should look however you want to on your day. Also make sure to eat and drink water before your wedding!

What is your secret weapon product?

Kenra25 volume hairspray. This product literally is my favorite hairspray in the world, nothing compares to it!

What are some of your passions other than bridal styling? What do you love to do for fun?

I really enjoy a good cup of coffee and I’m a total movie buff, horror and dramas are my favorites. I also love to bake!

REVIEWS:

Meghan is AWESOME!! She fit me in last minute in the busy wedding season and fulfilled my hair dream for my wedding! I told Megan exactly what I wanted and she styled my hair better than I could have imagined. She was prompt, professional, and so nice! I highly highly recommend Megan for any of your hair needs. – Katie Keys

Meghan is absolutely AMAZING! She caters to exactly what you want. She is extremely professional while also being incredibly down to earth and personable. The “getting ready” process on my wedding day was made all the better by Meghan and her makeup artist. They were both so peaceful and patient and they kept everyone calm and happy. Hire Meghan and you will NOT regret it! – Brianna Rodriguez

So happy I chose Meghan to do my makeup (as well as my mom and sisters) for my wedding! She was so organized and wrote out a timeline for our hair and makeup and was flexible to redo the schedule several times according to my planning needs. Everyone was extremely happy with the results and she was a pleasure to work with. Thanks so much Meghan for making my day so special!  - Shelby Alley

Meghan did an amazing job styling my hair as well as my bridesmaids hair for my wedding! She created styles that were soft and flowey and they held all night (even with some wind)! My hair doesn’t hold curl well at all so my hair was one of the things I was the most nervous about on my wedding day. Meghan helped me find something simple like I wanted that really helped compliment my makeup and dress and it was just as curled at the end of the night as in the beginning! She’s awesome!! – Karri Eakin
