Bridal Hair and Makeup by Bellissimo

Over the past few years in Yosemite there is one hair and makeup artist that I work with over and over, Carol from Belissimo, and for good reason. Not only does she consistently produce gorgeous brides, but she can work under the pressure of a wedding timeline.

As the daughter of a professional hair stylist, Carol was surrounded by style. One of the more interesting things to come out o this was that she learned from a father that was left-handed. This may not seem like much, but Carol herself is right-handed. Now she can approach styling ambidextrously allowing her to work even faster and more efficiently.¬†She started in Los Angeles working in theater makeup, constantly creating new looks under ridiculous deadlines as actors prepared for their next scene. In this environment she learned to use waterproof makeup, something that that she still uses today in her wedding work. What this means for you is that you don’t have to worry about holding back your emotions. You can be yourself and enjoy your wedding.

When I sat down to talk with Carol about their services, I learned one of the most interesting things about her business that I never knew. They offer full in-room massage services. Imagine the day before your wedding relaxing with your bridesmaids in Yosemite together while enjoying a massage. Or how about receiving a massage on the morning of your wedding?

Every time that I work with Carol I am amazed by what she can do. Gently working with brides, her styles seem effortless and at the same time amazingly beautiful. The styles fit in and flow with the natural beauty of Yosemite. I have even watched her user her magic to make tattoos disappear. But never have I seen a groom not be blown away the first time he has seen his bride. Just look at some of the photographs from my recent weddings with her below to see what I am talking about.

Bellissimo can provide hair and makeup in their salon in Oakhurst and will travel on location to your wedding in Yosemite. Carol is no stranger to the foul weather of Yosemite, ensuring that your wedding will stay on schedule despite what nature may throw at her.
