When I first saw an uber gorgeous wedding updo created by this talented hair stylist, I was very curious who created the elegant style. The bride shared her wedding day hair stylist along with raving about the amazing stylist. Liz of Hair by Liz P works at Luxe Salon in Mankato and also offers on-site wedding day services. Here is a short interview with the talented stylist.
1. Tell us a little about yourself.
I grew up in Mankato, Minnesota and currently live in my wonderful hometown! Shortly after high school, I attended the Aveda Institute for cosmetology in Minneapolis, Minnesota!
2. How long have you been a hair stylist?
I started off my career working in a very well-known salon in Mankato, and I have gone on to rent my own chair at an amazing salon, Luxe Salon! I have now been doing hair for 6 years!
3. How did you start doing wedding and special event hair?
I began doing weddings and special events at my first salon, I was one of many that greatly enjoyed doing them! I have continued to do so, and it is more and more fun everyday!
4. What is your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part about my job is meeting new people and making them feel beautiful everyday! And most importantly, on their special day! It is SO much fun.
5. On a wedding day, do you work out of a salon, on-location or both? Do you travel outside of the Mankato area?
On a typical “wedding day”, we have the bridal party come to the salon, we have awesome decor, and a great location downtown, which is fun for the “pictures” aspect of the morning! However, I also enjoy doing weddings on location if needed! It’s always fun to get out of town!
6. When you’re not working in the beauty industry, what do you do in your free time?
When I am not busy doing hair, I spend my time with family and friends! I also am a wellness coach to many. A year ago, I took control over my health, and I now spend time helping others reaching their health goals as a Herbalife independent distributor.
7. What advice do you have for bride’s when choosing a wedding hairstyle?
When it comes to choosing a style for the big day, I highly suggest picking a few different styles and then booking a trial run. This allows the bride to try different styles to see what they like best! It also makes for a less stressful morning the day of!
8. What are popular looks right now?
The most popular styles I am seeing are the low, loose looking and slightly messy looks! People seem to be going more simple these days! Simple is often times better!
9. How does a bride go about booking with you?
When booking an appointment, you are able to contact me directly by phone, email or Facebook. We do have a salon phone that they can call as well!
