    Amazing Ladies to Work With!

    I was honoured to work with 2 fantastic makeup artists for my big day - Alina and Nadia from The Blush Parlour. Both ladies provided amazing services for makeup (all of my Bridesmaids and myself were extremely pleased!!). They arrived promptly on time for our big day, and were easy to work with through our delayed dates due to Covid. Highly recommend!!!

    Wedding August 16th 2019

    Sarah was my hair and make up artist for my big day! She was prompt, friendly and professional. Such a sweet lady who put me right at ease. I was very pleased with my look and that for my Mom and MOH. I would totally recommend the blush Parlour for your special event.

    Shira and her team are literally the best

    The staff at The Blush Parlour were wonderful. Shira, Angie and Sarah helped me and my family feel beautiful and so relaxed on my wedding day. Shira is really intuitive and, even though I didn't have a specific look in mind for my makeup she developed something that perfectly matched my vibe. I had pretty specific demands for my hair and the girls went above and beyond to make it look just right. Shira and Angie were very efficient. They finished hair for 7 and makeup for 6 in a quick 6 hours.

    My bestie said it best: "I've never had my makeup done and not looked CRAZY before... she's SO good."

    The Blush Parlour's reply:

    wow Emily !!! you are the absolute best

    Couldn't have asked for a better hair & makeup team!

    Shira and Angie were absolutely incredible! Ang adapted so well to my requests for a few changes on the day of to the up-do she had done during the bridal trial, and it came out exactly like the picture I showed her – it was magical. I also had a diverse group of women in my bridal party, and both Angie and Shira did so well in making each girl's hair and makeup amplified their beauty, but also stayed true to their unique styles. They also worked with my mom, grandma, and my mother-in-law, who were all also very happy with their looks. And, everyone photographed so beautifully!
    I couldn't be more pleased, and it was extremely reassuring on the wedding day to know that the hair and makeup team was professional, kept to the schedule, and were just so kind. I 100% would recommend The Beauty Movement to anybody getting married in the GTA.

    I felt like my best self!

    I am extremely picky with make up and often do not like how my make up is done by professionals. Shira was very different. She uses all natural products and doesn’t cake on anything. You feel like yourself, that you’re not wearing anything heavy, but you feel beautiful and look your best. All of my bridesmaids and my mother, as well as my mother-in-law, loved their make up. I highly recommend Shira if you want to feel like your best self on your wedding day!

    The Blush Parlour's reply:

    aww Sarah,

    Thanks so much !
    This really makes my day, so happy we were a part of your big day and I can not wait to see some more pictures !

    cheers to a beautiful life of happiness together.

    Shira and her team are AMAZING. She made me and my bridal party look gorgeous. They are very accommodating, easy going, reasonably priced, easy to communicate with and professional. I would highly recommend booking Shira and her team for your professional make up services

    Everything about Shira and our hair stylist Ange was amazing. They are not only amazing humans, they are also the best at what they do.
    They made my bridesmaids and I look and feel absolutely beautiful, while still looking like us.
    It's so hard to find stylists that don't make you feel cakey or overdo it; Shira and Ange took everyone's preferences seriously and made sure we were truly happy with the end result.

    Thanks beautiful !! this was so awesome to read we are so happy that everyone felt fantastic

    I couldn't be happier with my experience with The Beauty Movement! Shira and Angie are super talented and so much fun to be around. They came to my apartment and did hair and makeup for me, 3 bridesmaids as well as my mom. Everybody looked absolutely beautiful, and they made sure we loved the result. I changed directions with my hair from what we had done in the trial - and Angie was super flexible and willing to try something more vintage inspired. It turned out amazing! I'm so happy that they were a part of my wedding day.

I am a very passionate, skillful and artistic Hair Stylist with over 10 years of experience creating intricate hairstyles for weddings, photo shoots, music videos, and special events. My love for Hair Styling was discovered at a very young age. As a professional dancer, I was never satisfied with how the hair stylists did my hair, so I started doing all of my teammate’s hairstyles for performances and competitions. Pretty soon I was doing hairstyles for friends and family for weddings and special events. Keeping up with the latest trends and techniques allows me to make sure every client walks away feeling their best. My upbeat personality and attention to detail will ensure that you are calm, confident and completely in love with your look!
