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

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, “Jackie O,” was my inspiration. I loved that Michele Renee The Studio specialized in big hair and big buns. After my trial run, I fell in love with my makeup.

I wanted my hair down, but different than how I would usually do it myself. I loved the side sweep old Hollywood look. I wanted my makeup to be more of a natural look, and the Michele Renee team did an amazing job all around!

Michele Renee The Studio was recommended to me by our wedding planner. They did a beautiful job with the bridal party’s hair and make-up, and everyone looked stunning!

I wanted something simple and elegant with a little flair. Our hair team was awesome. The hairstyling far exceeded my expectations. It turns out Michele Renee The Studio did my sister-in-law's hair at her wedding forever ago! That made it even more special.

Pastel Peach Boho Beach Wedding Hair Inspiration with Bridal Floral Halo of Ranunculus and Eucalyptus Greenery | Michele Renee the Studio

Peach and Greenery Bohemian Destination Wedding | Indian Rocks Beach

I wanted my makeup to be pretty natural glam. I wanted to make sure I still looked like myself, just elevated. I wanted my hair long and flowy but wanted to make sure that it stayed curled and pretty in case of humidity, heat, or a rainstorm (which we had all three).

I hired Michele Renee The Studio because I liked the work that I saw on her site and Instagram. From what I heard through reviews, her team is very skilled and talented. I was absolutely blown away by how the girls and myself turned out. Our hair stayed all day through heat, humidity, and rain. Our makeup was airbrushed, which I was hesitant about, but it was beautiful and lasted all day long. I cannot say enough good things about her team!

I wanted my hair to be simple, floral, and elegant, but something that didn't take away from my makeup or dresses.

Michele Renee of Michele Renee The Studio is amazing! She is literally a queen at hair and makeup. I've seen so many good reviews about her and her team, so I had to book her ASAP. I loved everything she did for me; she was simply the best.
