Lexi, Cathy, Tina
Tina began working in the beauty industry at the age of 19. She was trained under Robert Hardy, a highly respected hair stylist, at the Robert Lucas Salon on Oak Street, Chicago. She then moved to the Mario Tricoci Salon and Day Spa where she became a Senior Stylist, with a specialty in hair cutting and bridal hairstyles. Tina had the privilege to work alongside celebrity hairstylist, Anthony Cristiano, former creative director for Mario Tricoci Hair Salon in Chicago.
While building a clientele, she earned her degree in Business Management. She then took her salon experience and business knowledge and in 2006 founded Magnificent Brides. Tina wanted her clients to feel relaxed, pampered, and less stressed by offering services on location.
Tina has tremendous passion and vision for each and every bride she consults with, along with her natural ability to bring out each client's unique beauty. Whether your vision is classic, vintage, romantic, Hollywood glam, full beachy waves, braids or timeless chignons, she can make your vision a reality. In addition to working with Brides, Tina has collaborated on several photo shoots, fashion shows, holiday gala's, special events, Radio/TV beauty segments and her work has been featured in Modern Luxury Weddings Chicago, Chicago Social Brides, Today Chicago Women, CS Brides Northshore, Style Me Pretty and the Knot.
Tina hand selects the best team for your wedding or special event. Her team of professional freelance artists all specialize in bridal and special event hair and makeup. They encourage one another to be the very best they can be by continuing their education, using only the best products and tools, and striving for excellence in all they do.
To date, Magnificent Brides has accommodated hundreds of weddings both in Chicago and out of state.
In the event Tina is booked, she will recommend one of her trusted stylists to accommodate the Bride and her bridal party. For large parties, Tina can send two stylists to accommodate everyone in a timely manner.
