Andie P Artistry
Hair and Makeup artist based in Las Vegas
Hi Andie, I have seen your incredible insta profile and your work is genius
Hi! Thanks for the kind words .
I was curious as to how long you have been doing hair and make up in fabulous Las Vegas and what was your inspiration to be a stylist
I have been doing hair and makeup professionally since 2008. I started working for MAC as a freelance artist and I hated the sales portion of the job so I decided to go to cosmetology school.
I was SUPER into the Rockabilly scene since about 20 years old so I was always the “pinup girl” attempting to do victory rolls and winged liner.
After finishing cosmetology school i tried to assist a hairstylist with cuts and colors and she was HORRIBLE. I was her – “go get my lunch and coffee girl ” instead of really being inspiring to me.
I worked at several blowout bars, but what really inspired me was meeting the owner of HeadsWillRoll, Dottie Vee. She was sooo good with pinup hair and I was sooo interested in getting better. She saw something in me and asked me to be a part of her team. I fell in LOVE with my PINUP brides.
Do you have any particular, style of hair and makeup that you love doing
My specialty NOW after soooo many years is the vintage waves I took a few classes from His Vintage Touch and Miss Rockabilly Ruby but was able to come up with my own way of doing it 🥰
So for the Bride to Be – and for the bridesmaids what would be your advice in booking a fabulous stylist like yourself ..
Any tips for a smooth experience ?
For the soon Bride to Be- DO YOUR RESEARCH! Google, Instagram, Yelp and even Facebook, wedding groups have tons of ways to research certain stylists.
Make sure you look for stylists that specialize in what you want. Not everyone can do it, just because they are a licensed cosmetologist doesn’t mean they know BRIDAL.
Hashtags on IG are sooo important to find your perfect artist too. also, pay attention to how the stylist is speaking with you. You want someone that is professional and isn’t going to stand you up and always ask for an invoice or contract. Pleaseee do not assume because someone has over 30k followers on IG that they’re good I’ve heard stories about brides thinking they’re getting someone sooo amazing and popular but they’re ehhh not that great.
Hair and makeup is soooooo important,
as well as the photos you’ll look at for the rest of your life.
Don’t skimp on a good Artist for your special day
What other services do you offer eg: photo – tv – commerical etc. Have you met anyone famous any cool experiences.
I do photo shoots and am available for any Tv or commercial shoots. I work for an amazing agency out here Leivagency that gets me the coolest gigs!
I haven’t worked with any big time celebrities and I honestly don’t care too lol I’ve been asked to and I’ve declined them. I’ve worked for certain jobs that require discretion and well the anxiety it gives me to work those jobs just isn’t worth it
They DO pay sooooo well tho, but I’ll stick with my amazing fun brides.. thank you! Lol
If someone wanted to book you
how do they get in contact with you
Thanks Andie 🙂 xxx
