My Story


I graduated Cosmetology school in May of 2018. While in school I developed a passion for bridal styling and updos. I was told that the only way I could make a career out of being a cosmetologist was to find a good salon and work my way up. Well, I did just that for about a year and decided it was time for me to follow my dreams of becoming a full-time bridal hairstylist. I left with big dreams in mind, ready to start my new adventure!

I created The Updo Darling in 2019 and here I am 4 years later doing what I love, busier than ever with a full heart. I find it so rewarding to make others feel good about themselves; whether it be a wedding, engagement, pregnancy, photoshoot or any other important event. I always arrive with positive energy to ensure a relaxing experience as well as top notch service.


My studio is located in Brandywine, Maryland, which is where all of my Bridal Previews take place. On your wedding day or special event, I will come to you! I travel all throughout Southern Maryland, Annapolis, Northern Virginia, Baltimore and the surrounding area. You may also find me freelancing for Miranda Paige Beauty located in Prince Frederick, Maryland as well as Vintage Veils in Severna Park, Maryland.


I can't wait for the years to come, for all of the future brides I will meet and all of the beautiful love stories that I will get to witness. If you are interested in reaching out, please email me at I would be honored to work with you!
