The Bridal Experience at Heat°

With Spring around the corner, another season is closing in too: Wedding Season! Our team of Master Stylists + Makeup Artists love working with local brides and their bridal parties to make each of them feel absolutely stunning on their big day. We are dedicated to making your wedding preparation a special celebration that you will always remember because we know how precious these moments are before you walk down the aisle.


To help you learn more about the wedding experience at Heat°, we sat down with a couple of our brides from 2020 to share a bit about their pre-wedding story! Without further ado, we are absolutely honored to share the wedding experiences from Mrs. Jamie Jacobs and Mrs. Haley Jensen Leiding!



Wedding Preparation at Heat°

Jamie got married on Sunday, September 6, 2020 and Hayley got married on November 14, 2020. Jamie’s bridal hair and makeup included a Bridal Blowout plus hair and makeup for her entire bridal party. We asked Jamie how it felt getting pampered on her big day: “It was amazing.  Nicole and her team really went above and beyond to make us feel right at home.  They had treats and mimosas waiting for us.  All the ladies shared our enthusiasm for the day and we all left feeling beautiful!!”

Hayley’s bridal hair and makeup included a bridal up-do with airbrush makeup and faux eye lashes, up-dos for bridesmaids and personal attendants, as well as styling for the mother-of-the-bride. Hayley said she felt “Great! All of the stylists and makeup artists made me feel pampered, relaxed, and confident while we were getting ready for the big day.”

Ensuring Our Brides’ Confidence

One thing we focus on with our brides is making sure they feel confident and comfortable during the entire process leading up to their big day. As a regular guest of Heat° even prior to her wedding day, Jamie said Heat° is her “place”, so choosing a location for her wedding hair + makeup was an easy decision. 

When we checked with Hayley on whether she was confident about her stylist nailing her look for her big day, she said: “Yes! My stylist did an awesome job and I absolutely loved my hair. My makeup also looked amazing as well! I am not one who typically wears a lot of makeup, but she gave me a natural yet glamorous look. I loved my hair and makeup! I felt like a beautiful bride. They nailed the look I was going for!”

Exceeding Expectations

We asked our brides if our team went above and beyond for their big day, and if we exceeded their expectations. Hayley said: “Yes! We did on-site hair and makeup and they were quick, on time, excited, and got all of us girls pumped and ready for my special day. They all made sure that every girl felt completely confident and loved their hair/makeup and were willing to change/ fix anything if someone did not like it (although this wasn’t an issue because everyone loved their hair and makeup).”

And here is what Jamie had to share:

“Yes!  Even the little girls got their makeup done. It was so special and I know they all felt like princesses walking out of there. Everyone was at ease and very social throughout our morning there. They have a large bar to spread out all your stuff, and we had the whole place to ourselves. It took such a weight off my shoulders knowing I would start one of the most exciting days of my life there.” 

Recommendation for Future Brides

The greatest gift we get from our guests is knowing that they walk out of our salon feeling beautiful and confident, especially for our wedding parties! The second greatest gift is when they recommend us to their family and friends because we know word of mouth is so important for making these big decisions as they relate to your wedding. It’s one of the biggest days of your life, so knowing you will feel your most beautiful is incredibly important!

We asked Jamie what she would tell future brides who are looking for the perfect place for their bridal hair and makeup. This is what she shared:

“Work with Heat°! They really create an unforgettable experience for you from day one. I met with their wedding coordinator, Noah, and he took care of all the details. It was so easy. They even coordinated with the individual wedding party. They have many services outside of just hair. Make sure to schedule sometime to pamper yourself before the big day!”

Here is what Hayley said she would share with future brides:

“I would tell anyone who is looking for wedding hair and makeup to check Heat° out because they were awesome to work with, did great work, and made the whole experience fun. Hair and makeup for your wedding day is something that you want to get perfect, and I felt completely confident in all of the stylists/artists. I would absolutely recommend Heat°!”

We love when our brides keep coming back to Heat° after their wedding day for all of their pampering needs! Jamie says, “Funny how great one feels when they have beautiful hair!! It’s clear that the Heat° team takes a great amount of pride in the work they do. So blessed to have them. For a working mom with two littles, they are my escape for some “me” time.” So even if you don’t have a wedding coming up, we would love to be the place for you to retreat to for some “me” time and to help you feel a new confidence in yourself.
