McKenzie Morrison is a Tahoe native and highly devoted makeup artist with over 12 years of industry experience. Her career began in Los Angeles where she attended the Make Up Designory in Burbank. She stayed in Southern California partaking in all makeup artistry opportunities that came her way: theater, runway, photo shoots and weddings. Working with amazing companies such as M.A.C. Cosmetics, Smash Box, Nars and more furthered her makeup know-how and solidified a true passion for the craft.
"It’s so exciting being a part of someone's special day. It’s the little details that count and having the perfect makeup on your wedding day is one of them." - McKenzie
Megan's passion for hair styling began at an early age, perfecting her skills on family and friends. She attended beauty school at Federico Beauty Institute in Sacramento and was then given the opportunity to assist at the James Mark Salon. While assisting at the salon she also attended Toni and Guy cutting courses.
After working at James Mark for several years, Megan moved to Article Salon where she further developed her skills and techniques.
Drawn to the mountains, Megan began working in Tahoe eight years later doing what she loved - creating beautiful hair styles and stunning color at Lux Hair Salon. Always keeping current, she continues to attend wedding styling courses and conferences to feed her passion. Starting Truckee Bridal fulfilled a lifelong dream for Megan.
Kristie began her career with beauty school in Dublin, California followed by makeup artistry school at the Studio Makeup Academy in Los Angeles. While in L.A. she had the pleasure of working on several music videos – honing her skills under the clock and under the watchful eyes of directors, musicians and actors.
She returned to the Bay, specifically San Francisco, where she trained with Vidal Sassoon stylists at the DiPietro Todd Salon. After establishing a name for herself, Kristie continued to thrive and work in San Francisco for 24 years, always keeping a hand in the wedding industry with beautiful styles that reflect her customers’ individuality and style while offering her years of expertise.
After moving to Lake Tahoe, Kristie began to mix her embrace of the mountains and her love of hair design and styling with another of her life’s passions by opening up a photography business. A lifelong photographer, Kristie’s eye for design, setting and style has been a natural partnership for her – both the artistry of photos and the styling of hair lends itself to a great combination. Kristie books wedding photography as well through her photo site: https://www.kristiepellegrinophotographs.com/.
Always staying current and forever learning, Kristie continues to attend classes and train at various institutions throughout San Francisco and New York including Bumble & Bumble and more. Next up is Florida for the latest training and education in the industry.
