What to Expect
When you book with Beauty and the Belief you not only have a hair stylist and makeup artist for the day of your wedding, you have someone you can call anytime you have a questions or idea. We work exclusively onsite meaning you don't have to leave that venue you spent so much time picking out. We come to you so you don't have to worry about time, traffic, or if everyone will find the salon. We are a small business so we keep a very close relationship with our brides so no one is out of the loop and everyone knows what to expect the day of the wedding. You can book us for more than just your wedding too. We are available for boudoir shoots, bridal portraits, even getting your bachelorette party ready for the night out. We are available for your engagement/save the date photos as well as your rehearsal dinner.
My name is Shayla, I'm the owner/makeup artist/hairstylist at Beauty and the Belief. I grew up in the small town of Libby, MT before moving to Bozeman, MT to attend college. I studied business and accounting before making the decision to walk away and pursue a cosmetology career. I finished my journey at the Academy of Cosmetology in Bozeman and started working in the salon as soon as my license was in my hand.
I started this company after being in a couple salons and seeing how brides act when getting ready in a salon setting compared to when we came to them to get them ready. The difference was night and day. In the salon there was a lot of nerves from the bride and her ladies she had with her. Instead of focusing on having a great time they were watching the clock and wondering if they would make it back to the venue on time with traffic. When I came to a bride at her venue there was much more excitement and laughter from everyone. This was a huge factor in deciding to start my own company. I wanted all the brides I was lucky enough to work with to have a great experience before they walked down the isle, so Beauty and the Belief was created.
Now I am able to travel all over Montana and beyond making wedding mornings that much more enjoyable for my brides and bridal parties. I also enjoy donating my time and services to collaborations with other vendors and creating a styled shoot.
I have packages with local photographers and videographers so my brides can enjoy a discount on other vendors they might want to book as well.
