I worked with Dominique on a special wedding day styled shoot in the gorgeous Hudson Valley at the beautifully renovated Abbey Inn and Spa. Dominique styled bride models hair and did an incredible job in making them feel so confident in their photo shoot.

Tell us 3 Fun facts:
“I admit I’m a nerd at heart but that’s a good thing, right? I love learning and researching. Getting inspired by different people and different things. Taking classes and reading different books on things I love especially hair and makeup related. Then taking those things, practicing, and making it my own. Or taking different things from life and apply them as well. There’s so much to learn and you can learn something new every day. Like covering a tattoo. So many layers of different colors to cover the tattoo then getting the perfect match mixed for skin tone so it looks like it was never there. ”
“I love all things art. I love to paint, draw, and create things that also influences and inspires me in hair and makeup. I’ve created avant-garde hairpieces, I love Halloween, and can do some special effects makeup. So if you would like unique bridal hairpiece accessories or add to your veil or even Halloween makeup during October I’m your girl. I’ve made things out of hair like a hat for mad hatter, wigs, and so much more.”
“When I’m not doing weddings or my other clients I do work on fashion shows during New York fashion week and do photoshoots with models. I have also worked on a couple of indie films and theater plays which was fun as well and been published in magazines. It’s great when you can venture out to other areas in the beauty industry.”
Why do you love weddings?
“I love seeing my brides and their bridal guests happy. I learned this at a very early age when going to the salon with my mom. Our family friend Regina who is now my mentor was our hairdresser. Just watching the women including my mom feel pampered and happy was great to see. I feel like when you look good you feel good. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be anything drastic you done to feel that way. But just feeling confident is key. If I’m confident I know my brides will be. I love enhancing a beauty look and helping women with their ideas to bring them to life. My main goal is just that. Making them all happy and being part of their special day is why I love what I do.”
What are all the services you offer?
“Hairstyling, cutting, coloring, hair extensions, male grooming as far as haircuts and beard trims. Makeup both airbrush and traditional, including: Lash extensions, lash lift, and brow/lash tint. Not to mention, special effects makeup and creative hairstyling and accessories.”
Why do couples choose Salon Rochelle?
“Couples choose me mainly because I’m personable, easy-going, and understanding,”
Why would a bride/groom hire a professional hair and makeup artists?
“Your makeup and/or hair will last all day and will be done with professional quality products and tools. Your photos will be so gorgeous that you’ll be glad you did. It’s truly an investment for a lifetime to remember. Having a professional with years of experience in the industry that’s one less thing you have to worry about as well. They can also give you advice every step of the way and be there whenever you need it. The more you have to help the better. Time will go by so fast and your mind is going to be so flustered with so many other things on that day. It’ll be less stress and you can have at least one day that you pamper yourself. And you definitely deserve it. ”
