✨What is LOVE? ✨

Working in the wedding industry, I get the opportunity to work with brides on one of the most important days of their lives, where they get to celebrate the love they share with another. It is the day when two become one!

So what is love? Is it the butterflies you get when you look at your beloved? Or is it choosing to spend the rest of your life with someone, no matter how hard it gets?

I love what 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 says:

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

There is no better example of this love than the love that Emma and Hinesh share! These two have grown up together since the 4th grade, and have been together since high school. Hinesh suffered an accident some years ago that landed him in a wheelchair. Emma has been by his side and is such a shining example of what pure, deep, unfailing, selfless love is. She has one of the kindest hearts I’ve ever met and I was so honored to be able to witness their love on their special day! 💗

One look-two ways

I personally LOVE when brides decide to wear glasses on their wedding day! It’s so fun to add that extra bit of style and personality. If you’re on the fence about it, I say GO FOR It!


Hello social media!
It seems like it’s been a hot minute since we last met and it has! What can I say, I’ve been busy creating. Speaking of creating, what do you think of this beauty?! Katlin came in with blonde ends but wanted to freshen up her blonde. We opted for something dimensional and low maintenance. Nothing like babylights and a root smudge to do the trick!

Well hello there!

I am back after a much needed social media break. I don’t know about you but with all of the negativity on social media, I just needed a break. Time for myself, time for my family, but most importantly..time with the Lord. A very much needed time of reflection and growth. 🙏Sometimes it is ok to not always be ok.

Side note: I absolutely loved getting to do makeup for this beautiful bride to be and brightening up her blonde! Can you believe that this was the first time she’d ever had her makeup done?! Such a beauty inside and out. 💗

“Is that new growth or breakage?!” 🤨

This is a common question I get from clients sitting in my chair. Let’s discuss the difference between a hair tie/elastic vs a scrunchie and which is better for your hair. An elastic hair tie does give the best hold of the hair, but it can be very constricting to the hair. This creates weak spots in the hair causing it to break off (please scroll to see examples of this). The client in the first and second photo was told by a previous stylist to wear her hair up when she slept, and this was the result. It created a massive hole in the hair!

A scrunchie doesn’t also give the hair the most hold, but it is by far the best for your hair long term. Another option would be a claw clip!

✨Bonus tip: Please do not sleep with your hair up or put your hair up when it is wet. Your hair is more fragile when it is wet and will break easier due to it having less elasticity.

👰‍♀️ What’s your bridal hairstyle? 👰‍♀️

Are you more of a loose braid kinda gal, or do you love those boho hairstyles?

Do you prefer loose curls or old Hollywood waves? 🤷🏼‍♀️

Let me know which of these you love!


Cheers to Friday and a weekend FULL of weddings! ✨

So blessed and thankful to all of my amazing brides for allowing me and my team to share in your special day! 💗

What is your 3 day weekend looking like? 🤷🏼‍♀️

Nothing like a graduated bob and fresh color to brighten up your Monday!

This lovely lady just moved here with her family and was looking to change things up with her cut. So we decided to go for it and give her a sassy, yet sophisticated graduated bob!!

So glad she was over the moon excited with her new look! ✨✨

A little color correction magic to start the week! ✨⠀

This beautiful marine came to me wanting to be lighter and brighter after she’d used a dark brown/almost black at home color on her hair. Her natural base was a light brown/almost dirty blonde color. ⠀

To start the process, I had to use a color remover to help get rid of some of that harsh color so I could have more of an even canvas. That left us with more of a chocolate brown color all over. ⠀

Then I went in and did a full head of baby fine teasy lights for a more natural looking effect. The goal was to give a glow of brightness without looking overly highlighted since she’s in the military. Then I finished with a root shadow to help blend her previous color and her lighter natural root. This process took 6.5 hours. ⠀

I’m super excited with how it turned out for our first session!! Thank you for coming in to see me!


It’s all in the details! 🌸 ⠀

When choosing a hairstyle for your wedding day, it’s important to consider your dress. Is your dress more classic and formal?Is it more whimsical and boho? Or is it sleek and sophisticated? What do the neckline and backline look like? ⠀

All of these things are important to take into consideration when choosing your hairstyle! You want to make sure that your dress and your hair compliment each other. ⠀

What is/was your wedding dress style? ⬇️⠀

✨Today’s hot topic........Tips for a successful BRIDAL TRIAL (or shall we say preview)! ⠀

If I had 3 super important tips for a successful bridal preview, here is what they would be: ⠀

1) Make sure you bring at least 2-3 inspiration photos of your favorite hair and makeup look. This allows me to get an idea of your style, comfort level with makeup, and allows me to make suggestions so we can play up your best features! ⠀

2) Make sure to bring any accessories like hair pieces, veils, and even earrings! This will help you get a better idea of what you will look like on your wedding day. ⠀

3) Be honest!!! This is probably the MOST important tip I could give any bride! You will not hurt our feelings! The trial/preview is not about us (your stylist), it’s about you! So if there is something you’re not 100% happy with or you would like to tweak something, speak up! We cannot make it better or make sure you walk out feeling like a million bucks if you aren’t honest with your feedback! Nothing gives me greater pleasure than when my clients are 100% happy and feeling like a vision out of a fairytale. ⠀

BONUS tip: do not use heavy serums or creams to your preview. This could affect the way your makeup sits! Lightweight is always better! We can always add hydration if needed. ⠀

Well I did something BIG....well at least for me! I stepped out of my comfort zone and wore a bold lip today! 💋

Sometimes we are bound by feeling uncomfortable and it prevents us from trying something new! When we are able to finally push past that discomfort, we find a sense of freedom!
For me, I always admire the way a bold lip looks on others but have never felt comfortable to try it for myself (yes, even as a makeup artist). Thank you Thorne Artistry for challenging me to be bold today! 💪

What about you? Is there something that you are nervous to try? I challenge YOU to step out of your comfort zone and be bold today!


Woohoo! I am officially OPEN for business! 🎉

I am beyond excited to announce that my studio salon is FINALLY able to be open. I know this past year has been a wild ride but I wanted to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your love and support! Thank you for supporting me and my business even in the smallest of ways. You’re truly a blessing to me!

I look forward to seeing your beautiful faces soon! 💗

About Me


I am Sarah Ankerman, a Southern California hair stylist and makeup artist. For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for hair and makeup. Whether it was going to the salon with my Mom, or playing with my Grandma’s makeup collection, I was hooked! Something about the way I felt as a little girl after I’d get my hair done, or play makeup was truly powerful to me. I felt so beautiful and I remember wanting to share that with others.

I honed in on my strong love of hair and makeup artistry came when I was on a competitive Latin and Ballroom dance team while attending UC Davis. I would help my team members with their hair and makeup for competitions, and always loved creating different looks. After graduating from UC Davis, I moved to San Diego to be closer to my husband and pursued my love of makeup. I attended makeup artistry school in Los Angeles and started working as the lead makeup artist for a local TV news station in downtown San Diego. Shortly after having my daughter, I decided to pursue my love of hair and went back to cosmetology school in the evenings.

You can find me in my private studio salon located in Temecula. In salon, I specialize in sun-kissed and dimensional blonding services. Something about the way the hair naturally looks after spending a Summer at the beach is so inspiring to me!

When I’m not working behind the chair, I am working with my mobile bridal team making brides feel their absolute best on their wedding day. I specialize in natural looking, soft glam makeup. My team and I love customizing your look based on your features and just enhancing your natural beauty.
