Hi there! I’m Morgan! For the last 5 years most of my weekends are spent making brides & their squad all dolled up! My weekdays are spent mostly in the hospital, as I’m a physical therapist assistant. I do both professional airbrush makeup & hair. However, hair is my favorite. I love a good messy, low bun, with lots of volume!
