Beautiful Brides Philly understands that a wedding is one of the most important days of a woman's life. It is a time when a bride can express herself in the most unique way. Dana and her team of experts know exactly how to translate your personal vision into reality and create your unique wedding day look. Dana Persia, owner and founder of this award-winning company, has assembled a bridal beauty team that brings the salon to YOU on your wedding day. There is no traveling, no hassle and no worries. No party is too large and because we employ so many talented stylists, we can book multiple weddings on any given day--including Saturdays.

The BBP Process

Your personal hair and makeup consultation and trial takes place at BBP’s cozy South Philadelphia “retro” studio, where you and your guests are surrounded by black and white photos of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren and other style icons of their time. During your consultation, Dana and her stylists cater only to you, unlike a traditional salon experience. We listen to what YOU want directing and guiding you along the way with the result of transforming you into the most "beautiful bride."

One to two weeks prior to the big day, Dana puts together a complete timeline for you and your party, so it's one less thing for you or your planner to worry about. On your wedding day, the BBP team will arrive at your location with a full array of hair and makeup professional products and tools ready to beautify the bride and her party. This convenient, personalized service allows you to get ready at home, the hotel, the ceremony site or venue or anywhere you choose. When Dana’s team comes directly to you rather than you having to visit a salon, it minimizes stress, saves time, and allows you and your wedding party to relax, be pampered, be beautiful, and have fun.

Our Services:

Makeup

•a personal, one-on-one consultation and trial where photo ideas and your overall wedding theme (colors, attire, embellishments, head piece, etc.) are discussed and used as a guide to create your unique wedding day look

•traditional and airbrush makeup complete with false lashes if needed (strip and individual)

•top-line makeup products like Laura Mercier, Makeup Forever, MAC, Smashbox, Beauty Addicts, Urban Decay, Ben Nye, and many others, along with primers, bonders and setting sprays to ensure optimum all-day coverage and staying power

Hair

•the latest techniques and trends in formal hair styling

•professional-grade products and styling tools

•styling of clip-in extensions along with placement into chosen hair style (Note: We DO NOT cut or color extensions and suggest that if they do need trimming that you have that done by your personal stylist before your trial.)

•day-of blow-outs and roller sets

•placement of veil, flowers and any other hair accessories/embellishments for all bridal party members

About the Owner

In less than two years of re-branding her company and launching Beautiful Brides Philly, Dana has grown from a one-person operation--herself--to a staff of over 15 stylists and assistants in both hair and makeup and has tripled her client base. A seasoned business professional with 25 years of corporate marketing, PR and sales experience, Dana combined a college degree from Rutgers University, her business acumen, an education in esthetics from Jean Madeline in Philadelphia and a passion for beauty and created a business she loves and grows each and every day.

Dana, a professional makeup artist, licensed esthetician, bridal beauty expert, and passionate entrepreneur and philanthropist, has built her beauty career in weddings, television, film and fashion. She has worked as a makeup artist for NBC’s 10! Show and Lifetime’s “The Fairy Jobmother.”

Most recently, Dana worked as a lead makeup artist on the set of “Iniquity,” an ultra-modern story line based on the life of King David and set in Philadelphia. She also created edgy and modern makeup looks for Philadelphia Fashion Week 2009 and is a freelance makeup artist with HDNet's concert series, working with Gavin Rossdale and the band Bush as well as Ted Nugent.

BBP is amazing! Dana was very easy to communicate with and always quick to respond to emails. Also very accommodating as we had to add on two girls for hair at the last minute! Cate (hair) and Carmela (makeup) arrived early and let me tell you, they work SO fast but are true experts at what they do! There were 7 for hair & 5 for makeup and they finished ahead of schedule! All of my girls were incredibly happy with how they looked!

I am the kind of person who hates when I get my hair and makeup done but after my trial, I did a little dance around the studio. On the day of my wedding, it was even better! Both my hair and makeup lasted all night, even through the after party that went on until 4am! Thank you so much to Cate & Carmela for making me feel absolutely beautiful!! I would definitely recommend BBP! You'll be in good hands!

BBP was simply amazing. 3 girls (2 for makeup, 1 for hair) came at 12:30 for my 7:30 wedding. They did hair for 6 girls, and makeup for 11. Every single girl was made to feel beautiful on that day! The staff was patient, fun, personable, and professional. They also serviced a very diverse group of girls with no issues! I would definitely recommend!

From start to finish Dana and her team were both professional and easy to work with. For my large bridal party of 12 (including 2 young flower girls), everyone was extremely happy with their hair and makeup. I particularly LOVED both my hair and makeup for our special day, and the team was extremely flexible with my asking to change both my hair and makeup from the trial to wedding day. Thank you so much BBP for the flexibility, value, and patience with what was an extremely large bridal party. Absolutely worth the investment!

Dana and her team were awesome! Coming from someone who has pulled out and redone every up-do I've ever had, that's saying something. Not only were the hair and make-up stylists very good (pleasing a bridal party of 10), they were also timely, quick, and very professional. Thank you Beautiful Brides Team for making my bridal party and I look amazing for my 'Big Day'.

Beautiful Brides Philly were great to work with. Dana is very responsive and has her team organized. We had 10 girls get hair and make up done ahead of schedule and each girl looked amazing and we able to get touch ups and tweaks done if they wished. They showed up to my house on time and had all the supplies they needed with them. Cate, who did my hair for the wedding definitely needs a big shout out. I had so many compliments about my hair (just as many as my dress...maybe even more). I even had people just take pictures of my hair. She did an absolutely amazing job. My hair and make up both lasted to the end of the night despite the rain and all that dancing!
