Holly Kasprisin has made a career for herself as a hair stylist, and makeup artist for over 20 years. She’s had a passion, and natural talent for the two starting at a very young age. At 15 she decided to attend Cosmetology School while still in high school. She has worked for some for the most prestigious companies in the industry including Vidal Sassoon, Estee Lauder, Mac, Vincent Longo Laura Mercier, and Chanel. Her work has been published in magazines such as The Knot, CS Brides, Chicago Wedding, Modern Salon, Rolling Stone as well as many others. Most recently she was recognized in Chicago Magazine as one of Chicago’s best on-call hairstylists.
Holly’s main focus now is her bridal clientele. She is well known, and respected in the Chicago bridal community not only for her talents; but also her soothing demeanor.
Holly’s approach to makeup and hair is one that is classic and natural. Her airbrush technique is different from most. “I custom blend each clients makeup to match them perfectly. I also take into consideration their coloring all over. Nowadays we are wearing sunscreen on our faces everyday, which is a positive thing; however, sometimes our Décolleté area tends to be darker than our face, and neck. I take all of that into consideration to achieve a completely balanced look. My clients look and feel as though they are wearing nothing at all. I want my client to not only look beautiful in her pictures, and from a distance; but also feel completely natural up close. I strive to help my brides feel, and look like the most beautiful version of themselves.”-Holly Kasprisin
“Working as a hair stylist since the ‘80s I have seen some of the worst of hair trends. Nobody ever wants to date themselves; so be careful when it comes to trends, and picking out a hairstyle for yourself. You don’t want to look back on to your pictures and say to yourself, “What was I thinking???” Hair styles should have a soft, classic, touchable look. Think “red carpet” and “vintage”. Look to old Hollywood for ideas and inspiration, and then make it your own.”
