Michele Renee The Studio

We are an on-location hair and makeup studio whose goal is to make you look and feel your kind of beautiful.


Our Wedding Style Is:

The most important style is our bride’s style! Every bride has envisioned the perfect look for their wedding day, whether it’s looking like a princess, classic and romantic, modern glam, or oozing sex appeal. Before their big day, we have our brides send over inspiration pictures so they can visually communicate their ideal look to us.  So on the wedding day, we can create the fairytale look of their dreams. Regardless of their overall style choice, we always want them to feel and look their absolute best.

Our Personality Is:

We have a team of artists, each with varying styles, personalities, and energy levels. Our aim is to always try to match a bride’s personality to that of her artist’s. If a bride is vivacious and fun, we will pair her with one of our girls who is outgoing and fun so they can have an enjoyable experience with her and her bridal party.  If a bride has a calm energy, we will ensure that the artist we pair her with has a soothing aura. If a bride is “type-A” we want an artist who understands and appreciates every attention to detail. Hair and makeup are the first events of the day and it sets the tone for the remainder of the day, so it is important that our brides “getting ready” experience runs smoothly and is worry-free.

What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:

I grew up in a house full of women who loved hair and makeup. When we all got ready together it was such a bonding and fun experience. The getting ready part was almost as fun as the event we were going to! (Almost!)

I wanted to bring this experience to Brides and their Bridal Party. Why stress out running to the salon or makeup counter when we can bring the Studio to you!

We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

Every woman is beautiful but sometimes women can lose sight of themselves! (Especially on stressful wedding days!) Our artists love to be a part of bringing beauty from the inside out.

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

We are known for our Hollywood waves and glam updos.

One Thing Most Couples Would Be Surprised to Know About Us Is:

That I am not Indian! I work so many Indian weddings, celebrate Indian holidays, have many Indian best friends, watch Bollywood movies, drink chai…. that people are surprised that I am Mexican-American (Chicana) – BUT MY HEART IS INDIAN! (Does that count?)

One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:

I am passionate about helping children in some form or another. I would love to foster or create a charity to help children.

Our Pricing:

To serve our brides better we have three different levels and price points. Everyone deserves VIP treatment on their special day no matter what their budget is!

Bridal hair and makeup range from $165- $295

Wedding party hair and makeup range from $115- $175

Multi-Day Downtown St. Pete Indian Wedding Celebration

I wanted simple hair and makeup looks that went well with the style of my outfits. Michele Renee herself is absolutely amazing at what she does, and during the wedding, she was such an incredible person to have around me. She really understood how I wanted to look, and she got it done so quickly, too, which was great for our crazy timelines.

Colorful Rustic Brooksville Wedding | Legacy Lane Weddings

I wanted my makeup to be classic, cover up imperfections, but with as natural a look as possible. I needed it to stay put. I'm not as young of a bride as most, but I wanted to feel as beautiful as ever on my wedding day.

Michele Renee The Studio and I did a trial run. On the day of the wedding, I had a certain lipstick picked out that I knew wouldn't smudge off with all the kissing, and she was able to adjust my color palette for makeup to make it work. I loved how my makeup turned out!

“For my wedding day look, I didn’t want to look too overdone or not like myself. I wanted to feel beautiful with natural looking waves, rather than fussing with bobby pins for the night. My glam squad from Michele Renee The Studio came out in full-force to beautify my family and bridal party. Their team accommodated a large crowd of ladies and managed to keep us all ahead of schedule.”

“My wedding day beauty inspiration was long, loose curls worn half-up-half-down with a deep, smoky eye. I liked that Michele Renee The Studio offered both makeup and hair services, so I had one less vendor to hire. Their client photos were very pretty.”
