Someone hasn't been scheduling their social media posts and it shows.

It's me. I'm that someone 🤪

We are in it ya'll. This is peak season for me 📸 It has been a busy month of weddings, events, senior portraits, and everything in between. But amongst the chaos, I am super happy because SPRING is here and all the new scenery gets my heart racing.

Now let's chat about Andrea & Aaron’s wedding palooza this past weekend. IT WAS AMAZING! So much love & laughter, line dancing and yummy BBQ from our local restaurant Beach Bully. The Hunt Club Farm turned down the lights and the DJ turned up the music!

Stay tuned for more gorgeous pictures coming your way!

Not only did Laurie and Josh have to contend with the stress of planning a wedding during a global pandemic, but unexpected military complications meant their Spring date had to be changed, then weather hazards forced the celebration indoors. Luckily, their all star team of vendors pivoted to deliver a flawlessly gorgeous event unlike any other!

We do all the things! Cuts, colors, barbering, bridal hair and makeup. We are a full service signature salon that caters directly to those who want to be pampered.

We specialize in hair styling artistry, barbering, makeup application, cutting, and coloring.


We love a good reintroduction and shining spotlight on the talented stylists, makeup artists, and beauty professionals who have been with us for a long time!

If you haven't met Monica yet, we're giving you another chance. 😉

She is supremely talented with makeup and helping your inner beauty shine! Here's a little thing she wrote about herself:

"Hey! I’m the face behind BEACHMUA! I’m a single and sassy one of one incredible daughter and a rambunctious beagle mix. Art and makeup have always been a big part of who I am but combining the two professionally has been an unexpected dream come true! I love all things coffee, books, dogs and peanut butter."

NEVER underestimate the power of a perfect eyebrow!

We might not do much for a Klondike bar, but we'd do a LOT for brows this gorgeous.

If your brows are important to you, give them the attention they deserve with a brow shaping by Alessandra and live your best brow life!


When your stylist is ALSO a barber, she can create some pretty amazing looks.

Chelsey is always dazzling us with her line work. I guess that's why her IG handle is dazzlewithchelsey 😉👏

Strawberry season was over in July, you say? Not around here!

Loving this strawberry blonde by Hair By William P - fresh, and bright, no matter the temperature outside! 🍓🍓

💃 Now do the twist! 🕺

A classic reception song turned gorgeous bridal hairstyle. This is one of our FAVORITE trends this past season. It's soft and beautiful, without being too formal.

Perfect to go from cermony to reception, where you can get your groove on without worrying about ruining your hair!



Summer might be over, but blonde season is every season!

Your hair doesn't have to follow trends or weather patterns; it's not a storm front.

Your hair should be whatever color makes YOU happy!!

Hey, y'all!

Give a HUGE D&D welcome to ANN! 💜

"Hi! My name is Ann, I am an apprentice here at Darling and Dapper! I love creating art through makeup and styling. My goal is to make sure everyone that sits in my chair feels comfortable, beautiful and as special as they truly are. When I’m not doing hair or makeup you will see me with a book in my hands, traveling with my family or perfecting my craft/techniques. I can't wait to meet you!"

So glad to have her join the team!!


Self Care Saturday?

True, we should be self caring every day, but if we have to limit it to one SPECIFIC day, Saturday has the best ring to it, doesn't it?

What sounds like the perfect self care day to you?
How about a massage & a haircut?

With our new chapter beginning here at Darling & Dapper, we love that we now offer BOTH of those things in one place!

Pampering just got taken up a knotch. 👏👏

It's National Dessert Day, and what a TREAT this cut & color by Chelsey is! 🍬🍦

Swirls of vanilla and caramel? We'll take two!

(Stylist warning: We do NOT recommend eating hair. We *do* recommending treating yourself with a new or freshened-up style! We've got a chair waiting for you!)


🎶 It's like rai-aiiiin on you're wedding day 🎶

Which does NOT have to ruin your hair, makeup, or wedding, despite what Alanis would have you believe.

Just look at this gorgeous photo! We're never getting over it.

We may have only had room for one photo in our review template, but it's absolutely a team effort here at Darling & Dapper.

Working together and helping each other really just helps US create more amazing hair for YOU. Confidence building—that's always the goal!

Thank you for this review! ❤️


Taylor!!! Everyone, stay calm-- it's Taylor's birthday today!

It's fine, everything's fine. It's your birthday -- bring on the exclamation points, confetti, and unexpected anxiety!!!!

Show her some birthday love- on IG!


It's Sunday morning... when's the last time you groomed your beard?

DON'T LIE! It's alright if it's been a while—that's what your barber is for.

Looking for a fabulous new barber & a fresh style? Chelsey's got you!

It's never too late to go back to your roots.

In life, and in hair color!

Amber added some lowlights and a root melt to tone down this bright blonde to a shade that's closer to her natural color.

Throwback Thursday to this awesome cut, color & style by Vanessa Fegyo, because it's giving us ALL the Caramel Apple vibes, and we're definitely in that kinda mood. 🍎

Cooler weather & cooler tones. 🥰


We might be a *little* sad that summer is officially
over, but... October means fall wedding season is upon us, and we could NOT be more thrilled!

Bring on the gorgeous fall brides and lush wedding colors!

Speaking of gorgeous fall brides—😍

THIS FRIDAY is the hauntingly awesome event of the season to help scare those fine lines right back to where they belong: Invisible! ⁠

Our "Botox, hydration, and good times—oh my!" starts at 5pm Friday, right here at Darling & Dapper with the amazingly talented Ricki Thompson PA-C & Jason from Salt Spa!

Join us for smooth foreheads and some much needed vitamins to make your body happy!⁠

✨$25 deposit for each service required to hold you time slot. ⁠
✨Friends are welcome! Just make sure they sign up, too.⁠

Grab your spots on our Eventbrite page:⁠



You're more beautiful than Cinderella, you smell like pine needles and your face is like sunshine. We love the sh*t outta you -- happiest of birthdays! 🥰🥰🥰


Pretty sure it was just yesterday that we were cramming clients into our little 900sq/ft shoebox on Birdneck—and then BOOM, a decade later and here we are.

3500 square feet in just the salon, plus 5 other units with amazing entrepreneurs, a travel team in Austin, Tx.... it's an empire! And it deserves to be run like one. :D But I can't do it alone.

So for those of you who have not had a chance to meet this amazing human, this is Jeramie. The yin to my yang, the mac to my cheese, and officially our Happiness and Goals Coach.

It's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of what this industry is—and without setting proper goals, having someone to advocate for us, and hold us accountable, years can be lost. So for all the employees on our team, we now have a position dedicated to helping you reach all of your career goals, as well as ensuring you have everything you need from us to achieve them.

This wouldn't be much without our amazingly talented crew, and when they thrive, we thrive!


One thing we NEVER get tired of is the look of love.


Congrats to Hailey & Richard on their big day!

It's October 1st, and you know what that means, guys. It is NOT November and you have NO excuse not to groom your beard!

Get in here & get freshened up. Chelsey does amazing work with fades & beard shaping!


An exciting new addition to the team-- everyone meet Alessandra! 🎉🎉

"Hey ya’ll! My name is Alessandra. I’ve been an esthetician for 9 years and a massage therapist for 8. I’ve worked in so many different settings from Chiropractic to medical spa. I’m originally from Pennsylvania, but the Marine Corps brought me here to The Beach. I love the time I spend in the treatment room with my clients, helping them feel better and bringing out their natural beauty.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my fiancé Matt, our 3 children Braylon, Vincent, and Makenna and our 2 crazy dogs Chance and Indie. In my free time, you can find me with my nose buried in a book at the beach or on my SUP, planning my wedding or trying to keep my plants alive. I’m so excited to be joining Liz and the Darling & Dapper team and I can’t wait to meet all of you!"

Alessandra starts TOMORROW so book your sessions soon!


Prettier than a peach, and twangier than a banjo -- we love us some Taylor! Happy birthday you adorable nugget!! 🎉🎉🎉

So much exciting news over here -- as you know, CryoSpa has been right next door to us for a few years and we've loved every minute of it. So much so that we decided to get even closer by merging into one! (giggity)

While the name CryoSpa will be no more, LOTS of the same services will still be available:

All of the Esthetic Services - waxing, lash extensions, facial, microdermabrasion, fabulous skin care, etc
CryoSkin (hot girl winter, whatsup)
Infrared Sauna

So stop on by, say hello to some new faces, and pamper yourself like the queens and kings you are!



Something you might not know: The beauty industry sends 877 pounds of waste to the landfill EVERY. SINGLE. MINUTE.

We care about our planet, and don't want to contribute to that any longer!

Starting October 1st, Darling & Dapper will OFFICIALLY be a Green salon! We're joining Green Circle Salons and dramatically reducing our carbon footprint.

We're incredibly excited for this change, and to do better for the environment. 💚

If you'd like to learn more about what Green Circle Salons does- definitely take time to check out their website! https://greencirclesalons.com/


Today we're introducing you to another talented new member of our team--

Meet Dominique!

Here's a little about what she does in her own words:
"My love for being a makeup artist can be broken down into three categories: I love the feeling that I am empowering the people I work on, I love connecting with my clients and I love the journey I am on as an artist. A little makeup, a little paint makes a girl into what she ain’t. " 💕

New season, who dis? 💅

Amber took this beauty from a root-melted blonde to a rich & dimensional brunette- and we are in love!

Honestly, we're our clients biggest fans. We're here for whatever transformation, big or small, makes you feel like your BEST self.

Be sure to swipe to see the before!

We're fall.....ing in love with this cut & color by Hair By William P 🥰🍂🍁

Give us ALL the warm autumn tones! We can't get enough!


We love getting to be there for all of life's BIGGEST moments.

Beautiful brides (and grooms!), graduations, prom nights, maternity shoots, or even just a blowout for no reason other than that you WANT it-- these smiles are the best part of the job!

Here are Mimi (beeuty.by.mimi) and Anna (prettywithanna) with their beautiful bride Frances 🫶

Sometimes all it takes are babylights to go from brassy back to bright!

We're living for this refreshing touch-up by Amber! A total overhaul isn't always necessary to make your hair as fancy as you are-- just a little TLC! 🥰🥰

(find Amber on Instagram: haircrafted_beautybyamber)


We aren't sure how we got lucky enough to get SO many amazing and talented new faces, but we feel blessed to introduce another one today!

Everyone say HI to Kate Y.!

"HI! My name is Kate Yeager and I have been a stylist in Virginia for almost 3 years. I was born in California and moved every 2-3 years nationally and internationally because my dad was a Marine. We moved to Chesapeake in 2014 and that’s where I have been since! I love blonding, fun cuts and big transformations! I listen to what my guest’s needs are and I work my magic! Come to Darling and Dapper and let me get my hands in your hair!"


While we LOVE a good before and after, it's not all about having to make you look like a new person. That's not why we do what we do, and those before and afters aren't the only photos worth sharing.

You're amazing just the way you are. We're just here to help you shine. Whether that's a total hair makeover, or a trim.

If it makes you feel good-- if you leave feeling better than when you walked in-- that is the only transformation we need!

Two things we love: Fresh new hair, and deals!

Our girl Chelsey is offering BOTH as a welcoming deal that run through the next month!

Book an appointment with her and you can choose from one of two fantastic deals:

- Cut with a complimentary conditioning treatment for the smoothest, silkiest hair

-Partial highlight with 30 minutes complimentary in our infrared sauna-- and our sauna is pretty amazing, and offers all kinds of health benefits!

PLUS you get to have your hair done by Chelsey, who is, simply put, amazing.
Do yourself, and your hair a favor ✂️

You can DM us here, on IG, or call!


We are about to make your Monday a lot brighter with another new face!

Everyone meet Dee!

"Hey! I’m Diana or Dee.. whatever you would like ;) I love life, traveling, and my love language is food. I spent my younger days playing endless dress up and have been known for being extra. I like to think I like the nicer things and experiencing life to the fullest. Making people feel good and providing spa treatments & makeup is my passion. Come see me and leave knowing your zen spot!"

Welcome to the team, Dee!

An honor, and a pleasure! And what GORGEOUS photos of Mimi, Taylor & Mila!

Anyone care to go for a dip? 💦💦💦

We love this bold splash of blue by Chelsey ( on Instagram).

If you could dip your hair in ANY color, what would it be?


Pumpkin spice season is officially here, and we are all about this gourd-geous haircolor 🍂😍

Bring on ALL the warm hues, the oversized sweaters, and fluffy blankets!

We love a Sunday introduction!

Today we'd like to introduce you to a FABULOUS new addition to our wedding team- Danielle!

"I’m Danielle and I’ve been a VB local my entire life. I have a beautiful daughter who is my everything. I was previously a dog groomer for 10 years before I switched to cosmetology, I loved it but it wasn't my passion. I watched my step mother, a hairstylist with 30 years under her belt, have the life I always dreamed of and I decided to follow in her footsteps and enroll in school and I haven’t looked back since! I quickly found my home in another salon in Chesapeake, but I never thought I’d find two! I joined the Darling and Dapper wedding team and I have found the best mentors and coworkers and I couldn’t be happier!"

Welcome, Danielle! We're so glad to have you! 💕💕
(you can also find her on Instagram!)
