  • Wedding Hair & Makeup

    Every successful company has their story, and here is ours. In the late 1990s, we began as an agency for makeup artists who would freelance for major cosmetic companies as national and regional makeup artists. One of our artists was the national makeup artist for Christian Dior, another for Chanel, and others for companies, such as Smashbox, Stila, Nars, and Trish McEvoy. Shortly thereafter, we merged into doing production work for nationally broadcasted commercials, independent films, fashion photo shoots, while working with a legendary celebrity clientele. In 1999, a major turning point occurred when we were asked to do makeup for several Oscar nominees at the Academy awards. The word spread like wildfire, as these high-profile celebrities recommended our company to their friends and relatives for special events and weddings. Our work began to focus more towards the wedding industry and involved fashion shoots for bridal boutiques and weddings. To be chosen to do someone’s wedding is a compliment. To be asked to be a part of such an important day of someone’s life is truly an honor, and we take it to heart. Our philosophy is that any bride could change into a couture gown from her wedding dress and look like she’s about to walk the red carpet. Your wedding style should reflect your inner beauty and personal style. We are here to make you look your personal best. After twelve years in the business, we continue to grow and expand. After over 3000 brides and years in the bridal industry, we are able to travel anywhere in the country to make your wedding dreams become a reality. We serve the Santa Barbara area.

Thumbtack Spotlight

P3 @ Mira Bella Salon & Spa

What do you love about your job?

I love that I get to meet new and interesting people everyday and that I am able to transform their lives in around 45 minutes. My favorite part of the job is when a client smiles at their reflection and says "perfect".

It’s great to work with a team of stylists with varying degrees of experience and learn from each other at the end of the day. Our work gives us so much flexibility, I am able to arrange my schedule to best suit my clients and my family.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Previously, I was a mainframe database analyst at a major bank and I was no longer loving my job. My husband said "I get it, you're miserable, what do you want to do the rest of your life?" I slept on it and on the third night I realized that my passion was hair. I have been cutting and coloring my friends’ and family's hair for 20 years!

I researched what I would need to work on to do it professionally and took the plunge. I was the oldest student at my cosmetology school, even older than the instructors, but it was the best experience! I signed the lease on my own salon shortly before graduating and P3 Hair Design was born. Recently, I moved to Santa Barbara, California where I now lease a space inside Mira Bella Salon and Spa.

  1. #1 Santa Barbara Hair & Makeup

    (17 reviews)

    Lauren T.

    Working with Santa Barbara Hair & Makeup was a great experience! I met with Emily twice for hair and makeup trials as I changed the direction of my wedding day look at bit, so Emily was nice enough to come out to LA to accommodate the request. Emily and her team were amazing with my groups hair and makeup day of. I felt like everyone looked like the best versions of themselves - I think the highest compliment you could give a makeup artist! Emily really has such a great talent and is so sweet and made me feel confident and comfortable. I didnt have to worry about hair or makeup because I knew Emily and her team had it handled. I would highly recommend Santa Barbara Hair & Makeup and would work with Emily again in a heart beat!

    Jennifer B.

    Brittany was awesome! She woke up very early to meet me and to get me ready for my wedding ceremony. She was professional and detailed. The only reason why I didn't give her a five is because I didn't communicate with her that I prefer black eyeliner on the top and bottom eyelids. Of course, that's just my personal taste. Other than that, she made me look beautiful!
