Full Service Salon and Mobile Styling Team for your Big Day
Pinup Studio started out as a full service salon, and now is one of the top wedding hair and makeup studios in Raleigh. They still have a salon, but also love to travel onsite to wedding days. Pinup is ready to bring their styling squad to weddings across the entire Triangle area of NC.
Haircuts, hair extensions and eyebrow waxing are just some of what Pinup Studio offers. Christina and her “Pinup Girls” work hard to keep up with bridal trends so they can help clients feel amazing on their big day, from gorgeous makeup to an elegant up-do. Consultations and trial runs help ensure you’ll be completely satisfied with your wedding day look.
Christina and her team work closely with clients to get a sense of their preferences and what will best compliment the wedding theme, setting and even the neckline a client will wear. Hair coloring, cutting and extensions are just the beginning of services offered at the salon. Email the Pinup Girls at Bridal@pinupstudioraleigh.com
Raleigh native Christina Kirkey grew up loving all things glamorous and pink, and dreamed of owning her own salon. She started her own business back in 2015. Since then, she has grown Pinup Studio into a 10-chair, full-service salon and freelance team that welcomes all.
If someone has no idea what kind of hair or makeup style they want for their wedding day, what advice do you give them?
“Trial runs are not mandatory but highly recommended. For those who don’t traditionally get their hair and makeup done this can be a big change for them and a lot to adjust to. We want everyone to be comfortable and love themselves the day of. After all, these pictures will last a lifetime! Trial runs are great for the client and stylist to be on the same page so the day of goes even smoother. Our stylists specifically take notes on the style and everything used through the trial. If the client is just too busy we recommend they send a mood board over, so our stylist can get a feel for what they like. Lastly, trials are great to get done the day of portraits. This is always a great way to kill two birds with one stone.”
Does Pinup Studio offer any services that might help a wedding party relieve stress?
“We don’t offer any spa services but we do offer blowouts which is a great thing for the wedding party to do prior to the rehearsal dinner. It allows time to relax and get pampered before dinner!”
