How it all started...
We are Meagan and Hillarie Tucker, two sisters-in-law(we're married to brothers), and that’s how we met one another! We are both licensed cosmetologists and we worked in the same salon together for over 3 years. We kept getting so many inquiries to do hair and makeup f0r weddings that over time we decided to partner together and make this into an established business. We now own a studio that we opened in August of 2018 and have grown into a team of 7!
We have such a huge passion for the wedding industry and we always strive to make sure each person gets the quality time deserved and has the best experience possible. It's way more than just doing hair and makeup for us! We love the fact that we get to play such a huge part in our client’s lives on their big day and get to build relationships with them in the process.
Meet Our Team
I am Meagan Tucker, I’m 23 and a co-owner of Unfading Beauty hair & makeup studio. I live right outside of Birmingham, Alabama with my husband, Aaron and our two adorable fur babies, Maya and Leo. I have worked as a licensed cosmetologist for the previous 5 years after graduating from Paul Mitchell the School Birmingham and in the last year, branched out to owning my own salon. If I’m not in the salon, you can find me at a local coffee shop or keeping up with the world of fashion. I also love traveling to big cities because it inspires me both personally and in my professional career! My love for cosmetology comes from actually being on the other side of the chair and having my own hair and makeup done for different special occasions. I loved the process, creativity and experience of being in the chair that it opened my mind to the thought of actually doing it for other people. My professional experience includes hair cuts, hair color, weddings, pageants, editorial and any other special event hair and makeup. What I love most about my job is being able to express my own creativity and see a genuine change in how people feel about themselves.
I am Hillarie Tucker, i’m 29, and I am one of the co-owners of Unfading Beauty hair & makeup studio. I am married to my best friend, Austin, and we have two beautiful children together, alongside our family dog, Luna. If I’m not in the salon, I’m probably binge watching Netflix, binge eating sushi, or enjoying any of the local restaurants in the city. I have been a licensed cosmetologist for the past 7 years. My passion for cosmetology comes from being a cosmetologist’s daughter and spending all my time in my childhood in “the beauty shop”. I saw so many women leave the salon with a new found confidence and I knew that’s how I wanted to make people feel. I honestly believe that I have the best clients in the world and always love adding new people to that family. My professional experience includes haircuts, hair color, wedding, pageant and any other special event hair and makeup. My favorite thing about what I get to do is helping women express their individuality through their hair and their makeup!
