Owner | Hairstylist 

I've been doing on-location wedding hair for the past 3 years. Prior to that I worked full time in Salon located in Englewood, OH. I've been passionate about styling hair since I was a little girl.  I created my bridal hair business in 2013. I have enjoyed every minute of it, the relationships formed with past brides and clients have inspired me to expand into the bridal world. Formally known as Sweetly Pinned Hair, we are now Sweetly Pinned Hair and Makeup.  Our team has been hand-selected as some of the areas BEST! As a bride you can feel at ease when booking your bridal hair and makeup with us. We have over 10 plus years combined of experience as Licensed Cosmetologist and Licensed Makeup Artists.  We are professional, fun, and our goal is to help you create a custom bridal look for your big day. 

ELYA MYERS | Hairstylist

I have been professionally styling hair for 9 years, but really it has been a lifetime of experience and passion. From styling my friends hair in my early teens, to professionally today. There has never been a doubt that this was what I was meant to do. I am very passionate about styling hair and always providing exceptional customer service. I strive to meet my clients vision and expectations. I want every person leaving my chair happy and well taken care of. In my free time I spend most of my days taking care of my two daughters. My family and I enjoy camping, canoeing, or just sitting around watching tv or reading a good book!

EMILY BRUN | Makeup Artist 

I am a freelance makeup artist who started her career with school at the academy of freelance makeup in New York City. For two weeks i studied all the basics of makeup, from brushes to foundation, all the way up to advanced makeup knowledge such as body art and runway makeup. A few months after returning home, I started at Ulta Beauty as a prestige consultant growing my craft and learning about skin care and what is in beauty products. From that point, I said yes to everything I could and worked on so many different projects and with so many different professionals in the area to grow my business and understanding of the world of beauty I was entering. I love the art of makeup and everything it entails

MONICA MCALPIN | Makeup Artist 

Upon graduating from the Ohio Univeristy.  I moved to New York City to begin my career as an artist. I love all things creative, but I;ve always had a special connection to the art of make-up. I've done makeup for Sony Music Recording Artists, American Idol winners, catalog shoots, music videos and even events at the White House. After fifteen years of living and working in New York, raising a family brought me back to my hometown - Dayton, Ohio. I'm excited about the opportunity to team up with Sweetly Pinned Hair and Makeup and share my love of artistry, creativity and transformation with all of our clients and brides.
