Morgan Chenault


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!

Starr attended the Center of Applied Technology North (CAT North, Cosmetology program) while in high school. She continued her education from high school through continuing Mentorships. Starr has 5 years of experience with 3 being a lead stylist on a bridal team. She has been mentored for years on bridal styling and in salon services. She is always furthering her education and looking for amazing artists to mentor under/learn from. Starr loves all types of hair and textures, all things from bridal styling, updos and more! She has a crazy head of hair herself and believes every person should have the ability to love their hair and style!

Her speciality is soft glam makeup looks!

Taleen's makeup skills are self-taught, but she took drawing and oil painting lessons growing up and so much of what I learned applies to how she does makeup today. Taleen has been doing makeup professionally for about 7 years now, but even before then she was always the go-to friend for all things beauty. Fun Fact, she could probably open her own Sephora store with the amount of makeup she owns.  Whether your style is subtle and elegant, or more glamorous and fun, Taleen's got you covered and can’t wait to meet you!
