I'm Heidi and I've been creating updos for nearly 20 years! I jumped ship from salon life and I've been running my bridal business ever since. I'd love to help you overcome your fears and do bridal hair! Stick with me to grow your updo skills and your bridal business savvy and create a career you absolutely love. 

My Story

I've always loved watching hair tutorials and learning anything I can about updos. I've spent a considerable amount of money attending in person classes, not to mention my original education at The Aveda Institute. While those have been valuable, there are many ways they've come up short. The way I have learned the most has been through practice! Hundreds of brides and over a thousand bridesmaids in my career has given me expertise that spans across trends, hair types and lengths, and many iterations of products. 

If you struggle with where to start, with battling frizz, with feeling overhwelmed, and not knowing what products to use, you're in the right place. If you want to work with more brides, but you get nervous, you're in the right place. If you LOVE updos and want to do more of them, you're in the right place!

The Updo Collective is a place for you to find comprehensive updo education, helpful resources, bridal business support, and a community of like minded stylists. I'm passionate about investing in you as you grow your updo skills and build your bridal business!
