Where do you pull inspiration from?
Old Hollywood is my first inspiration and I grew up in a house where it was alive and well!
I'm also, always and forever, a creative type and I'm always pushing myself to create styles that make me think outside the box.
What's the best part about your job?
The best part about my job is creating a walking work of art. I'm an artist at heart and I love being able to translate what I do into something beautiful that someone will wear.
Teaching my hair classes is another passion of mine, I absolutely love sharing the knowledge I have for my craft and helping others become better at theirs.
What brought you to Los Angeles?
I moved to LA to pursue my love of hairdressing and makeup artistry at a new and exciting level.
Plus I'm originally from Minnesota, so not having to shovel snow anymore is a major advantage to living in Southern California!
How can I book Miss Ruby for my wedding or any other hair and makeup appointment?
You can send all appointment inquiries to me by visiting the contact page and filling out all of the required information. Please note that I'm not currently booking any weddings more than 6 months in advance, once we are within the 6 month window of your wedding I'd be more than happy to assist you!
