Hair & Makeup by Ana Adds a Personal Touch

With a reputation built on years of experience, Ana Salazar has established herself as an industry leader and undoubtedly, one of the best in bridal hair and makeup.

As the owner of Hair & Makeup by Ana, she is known for her exquisite artistry and unique attention to detail, offering complete beauty services for brides and their bridal party. Though renowned for her exceptional skills for making women look and feel beautiful, Salazar says it’s the highly personal approach she takes with each client that has really led to her success.

“In my many years working with women doing their hair and makeup, one thing I’ve learned is that you have to take the time to understand what they like and don’t like,” she says. “It’s key to making them happy.”

“Most brides do not want to be transformed for their wedding day,” Salazar explains. “They don’t want to look completely different; they just want to look like a more beautiful, elegant version of themselves.”

Beginning with a consultation, Salazar sits down with each bride to find out what look they want to achieve for their big day. She encourages them to use magazine cutouts, pictures, or color palettes to convey their vision. Especially for those brides who already know exactly what they want, this helps to ensure everyone is on the same page.

“When we have the consultation, I use that time to really get to know the person I’m going to be working with and for them to get to know me,” she explains. “If they know what works for them or have something in mind, I won’t try to persuade them in a different direction. I may give advice on how to enhance the look, but I always let the bride call the shots.”

On the other hand, for those who need some guidance or different ideas for wedding day hair and makeup, Salazar also delights in using her knowledge and expertise to offer suggestions.

“I stay current on hair and makeup trends and can offer many different possibilities from traditional styles to more modern red-carpet looks. It’s really a matter of working with the bride until she feels we’ve come up with the perfect wedding-day look,” she says.

Depending on a bride’s needs, wedding packages can include in-studio or on-location services as well as individual or group accommodation. Being bilingual, Salazar also services Spanish-speaking clients.
