About Alena 

Hello Gorgeous, I'm so happy you are here!   

I'm Alena Bankovska, licensed wedding makeup artist and hairstylist, with EXTENSIVE training in both fields of beauty, and a heart for going above and beyond for her brides.

What sets me apart from other artists is my insatiable hunger for knowledge and continuous growth in the field that I am passionate about. Specifically, when it comes to bridal hairstyling and makeup artistry, I have dedicated countless hours towards EXTENDED education. This commitment allows me to constantly improve and offer my clients the most up-to-date and exceptional styles.

My style is soft, yet elevated 

My goal is to assist you in attaining a bridal appearance that enhances your natural beauty, ensuring that you feel confident and stunning while staying true to yourself. Best version of yourself - elevated. 

Professional hair and makeup artistry is not just a job for me, it's my purpose, my passion. 

That' s why I deeply care about my brides – I am always the first to arrive and the last to leave when it comes to glam time, ensuring that you look your absolute best. I am willing to go the extra mile, dedicating additional time to guarantee your satisfaction.

This is why I only book ONE wedding a day and commit 100% of myself to the bride who books me.
