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.Sent on 28/11/2018
My bestie said it best: "I've never had my makeup done and not looked CRAZY before... she's SO good."

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.Sent on 27/07/2018

Team of The Blush Parlour
Founder, Lead Makeup Artist
Through years of experience in the beauty industry, I have come to understand that fabulous makeup and great hair leaves clients feeling excited and confident about the way they look. Along with being the owner and Lead Artist of The Blush Parlour, I am also an on-air Beauty Expert at CHCH TV 11 and am the founder of a very successful blog “Stop, Drop and Make-Up”. As a top Toronto influencer, I am a representative of various leading beauty brands.
Hair Stylist Extraordinaire
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!
