Hi, I am with Town Hall.
We are preparing a Welcome Kit for new residents that are moving into your community.
Our Welcome Kit can only feature one Hair Salon and I would like to discuss your being the exclusive Hair Salon for your communities’ new residents.
I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.
Please message me or for immediate assistance, feel free to call or text me on my cell which is listed below.

My first trip down to Austin was nothing short of a fairy tale. I was so blessed to make the trip to Texas to celebrate with Sierra and Jared and their friends and family. We’ve known Sierra’s family for years, and in some ways grew up together, so it was such an honor to be there for this milestone. There aren’t the right words to describe how overwhelmed I was with the love and beauty in this day, so I guess I’ll just show it in pictures!

(On a side note -- it was a beautiful “full circle” moment for me, since Sierra’s mom, Julie, was my mentor in photography and got this whole journey started 14 years ago!)

I know I didn’t get all of the vendors names (so please feel free to shout them out!), but here are a few that helped make this day amazing:
Venue: Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center
Planning: Couture Concierge Event Planning Solutions
Hair/MUA: Bethany Elyse Hair & Makeup
Flowers: Pat Williams and Katrina Lyons
If you know us, then you know vintage and pampas are kind of our jam. So putting this event together was a boho lovers dream come true...😍

Over a year ago, we experienced a little piece of history that we will never forget. Not only were we in the middle of a pandemic, but George Floyd was killed. I chose to remain silent and listen, which allowed me to reflect on how I can educate myself and those I interact with about racial equality and how we can positively be a part of history in the making. I came up with the idea that we needed to seek out and celebrate a local hero in the community who was raising awareness and spending their time fighting for social justice. We wanted to find a person(s) who was presently trying to BE the change that we needed to see in the world.

After realizing there were a lot of vendors in the wedding industry who also felt the same way, the donations easily rolled in. TOGETHER, we crafted the ultimate FREE wedding giveaway, Coloring Love into our Community. The nominations came pouring in and each story touched our hearts, reminding us that there are SO many deserving people out there fighting for what is right. Within days we had over $30,000 worth of services donated and tons of deserving applicants. After a very intense round of voting, we were pleased to find out that this giveaway led us to meeting Meme + Cliff. From the nomination application itself, Maria writes…

“When I think of social justice and advocacy I automatically think of Meme Styles. Meme, is the Founder & President of the award winning nonprofit, MEASURE! MEASURE seeks a better quality of life for members of underrepresented communities - especially People of Color in through shared research, best practices, and community participatory action. MEASURE empowers underserved communities to become active participants in the process of changing statistics. Meme, was a featured speaker at the Women's March ATX and advocated for black women not just in Central Austin, but around the world. Meme, partnered with my organization Hearts2Heal, to create the first ever Travis County Girl Squad.The Girl Squad is a direct service program for self-identified Black Girls ages 13-17 who have had contact with the justice and/or child welfare systems or have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. There are numerous projects, organizations & individuals that Meme & MEASURE have given time, energy & financial support to, to ensure that disparities within the black community are addressed and have measurable action in place, to make a difference. I could write an entire thesis on how Meme has given back to the black community and worked diligently to support ALL marginalized communities.”

JUST like that, we blinked and we FINALLY get to celebrate the wedding of MEME + CLIFF STYLES this SUNDAY, July 25th! I wanted to take the time out to thank ALL of the vendor donations, who made this possible as we focus on doing everything we can to celebrate this week in honor of Meme + Cliff’s upcoming nuptials!

The first time I met Nick and Katrina I remember thinking..."wow, these two are SO in love"! 🤍 All throughout our initial consultation they were holding and stroking each other's hair. You could SEE the love.

Much like this photo...you can just SEE the love here. 🥰

It's hard to believe Branch & Bloom created this beautiful ceremony ground-level floral piece primarily out of foraged material she found at Sunset Vista! Of course, she added in her roses and such, but how beautiful!

We don’t go without this around here! Who doesn’t love a pretty glass bottle that’s either?? We 🖤 you


In my ten plus years working the beauty industry, I’ve noticed the movers and the shakers and I’ve seen what sets them apart. These women are it. is such a gift to work alongside. Professionalism, intention, KINDNESS, a passion for creativity and learning, all these things make for success. My background has always been about education and that’s why I am so excited about what’s to come. This evening, my girl Kendall from and I hosted a virtual fast track session on sanitation and organization. We covered so much ground and it’s definitely the first of many more of its kind. Thankful to be a part of the beauty industry, it’s a tribe that I am forever proud to link arms with.

Own your power. Take up space. Speak up. Hold the door open and take others with you. Change takes courage but do it anyway. -


If you would’ve told me during the snowstorm that in a couple weeks, you will have 38 clients in 7 days, I wouldn’t have believed you. At that place in time, I felt the crashing weight of last year along with all the havoc the storm brought. Running a small business isn’t easy or predictable but that’s the beauty of it. Going through the tough times makes the other side that much sweeter. And knowing that I’m working for my OWN dreams and helping other peoples come to life is worth it all at the end of each day.

Magical is the word that comes to mind when I get to do my former brides hair and makeup for their maternity photos. Kristyn and I met when she was a bridesmaid in one of my clients weddings. It’s been a wonderful relationship ever since, who would’ve thought we’d end up here. I’m so grateful to be able to witness milestones like this. All the love for this beautiful mama, she’s glowing from within ✨


Hey y’all, Bethany here! I was asked recently what my favorite part of my career is, and without skipping a beat, I said the people. Thriving in this industry since 2009, I’ve gotten to connect with ALL types of humans and I am absolutely better for it. Living as a creative and small business owner has allowed me time to blaze so many trials, forever leading me to new perspectives and ideas. Hearing people’s stories, having them hold space for me, playing a part in some of their most sacred moments is all such a gift. I’m filled with gratitude, so ready to connect with whoever God places in the pages of each chapter. Cheers to all my people, past present and future! You’re all the reason why I love doing what I do 🤟🏼 📷:

Looking back at my updos over the past decade, there’s probably hundreds! Out of these which would you choose?


Lemme know in the comments 💫


Been awhile since you’ve had a trim? One thing I love for dry ends is a few drops of Mirah hair oil mixed with a few drops of my favorite essential oils. Cedarwood, lavender and frankincense are all amazing for promoting healthy hair growth. Adding a few drops to the crown of your head will also smell wonderful and work the plant magic 🌱

Hi There!

Welcome! :) I'm glad you stopped by! Just a little bit about me: I have been doing hair and makeup for the past 8 years and I absolutely love what I do! My advanced training began during my 5 years spent working for Toni&Guy. It was there that I not only learned the very basics, but eventually grew into a master stylist and cutting educator. I learned quite a bit about business during my time as Assistant Salon Director and for that I will always be grateful. It truly is a blessing for me to run my very own business now! My passion comes from connecting with people every single day while simultaneously maintaining a creative outlet. Feel free to message or text me for an appointment! Have a great day!!
