I would like to get better about posting throwback pictures on my social media sites. What better day than Thursday’s? Sometimes it’s nice to look back and remember doing a certain wedding or meeting a certain senior that is excited for her photoshoot. Looking back makes you realize how far you have come. I always like to see if anything has changed in my work or what styles have come and gone. Everyone should look back at how far they have come. I once dreamed of being asked to do makeup for photo shoots and weddings. I didn’t ever see it becoming a regular work week for me! I have come so far and learned so many lessons along the way. I am thankful for each and every client I have met.


Brush turned 2!

Welcome to Brush Hair + Makeups’ first blog post. My name is Liz, I am the owner/stylist at this adorable salon located in Godfrey, il. I had a dream of owning my own salon for years and here we are! I wouldn’t be here without the help of our stylists – Kristen, Jamie and Sarah. I opened Brush Hair + Makeup in August 2016. I can’t believe we are rolling into 2019 in just a few days. We celebrated some big accomplishments this year. We have a great group of girls that work together really well. It takes a lot of patience and passion to be in this industry. We are known for doing great hair color, haircuts, hairstyles, makeup and lashes but we are also known for our weddings. We specialize in wedding hair and makeup for wedding parties big and little. We travel around the St. Louis and Riverbend area all year long making sure our brides and their girlfriends have the perfect look. We also have a gorgeous salon space that offers beautiful lighting for photographers and videographers to catch those special moments of brides getting ready for their big day. Did I mention this salon space is perfect for celebrating with mimosas?! This year we had the opportunity to be apart of over forty-five brides big day! One of the weddings is close to our hearts because it was our stylist, Kristen. We have won best of the best salon for multiple newspaper polls. I feel so blessed and happy to have so many accomplishments in the first to years of business. I can’t wait to see what 2019 holds for us and I can’t wait to share it with each and every one of you!

Cheers to the new year and new opportunities!
