It’s hard to believe but I completed the Master Program at Make-up Designory (MUD) in Burbank, CA over 11 years ago.  When I came back from makeup school I was renting a station at my previous salon.  No one in the salon was doing makeup at that time so I asked the owner if I could begin to offer my new makeup services.  He agreed and it was a match made in heaven.  Not only was I growing my hair clientele at the time, but I was also perfecting the specialized beauty technique of airbrushing makeup.  In the early days, I started out doing makeup for high school girls attending the local proms.  Every year they would come back to me for hair and makeup services.  I began to be referred to their friends and younger siblings as the years went by.  As I began to refine my beauty craft, I slowly started to book bridal clients.  Eventually I stumbled upon Wedding Wire and The Knot, which are the leading wedding vendor platforms for soon to be brides, and I put myself out there as they say.  I created my first free vendor profile with what little portfolio pictures I had and sure enough local brides found me!

In the beginning I made a lot of mistakes to be perfectly honest.  I did not have any formal business training, so I was literally learning how to run a bridal business on the fly.  As I started to get busier, I invested in my self and decide to pay to be seen on the professional wedding vendor platforms.  The increased exposure was an early blessing but presented a new inevitable problem.  I couldn’t single handedly provide services to an entire wedding party.  I’m good but no one wants to feel rushed, or worse have to wake up at 4:00 A.M. to start services.  As I began to receive inquires for my services than I couldn’t handle, I knew I had to get reliable help ASAP!

With my fellow artist’s talents growing year over year on the team, I knew I had to brand myself differently.  It was time to transition from “I” to “We.”  I decided to rebrand my business and remove my personal name.  Looking back it was one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made.  Of course adding artists to the team presents its own set of challenges.  Nothing is ever perfect the first go around.  Over the last four years, the Veil Of Grace Bridal Beauty Team has grown to 17 artists!  We now offer services in San Diego, Orange County, Temecula, Los Angeles, Santa Clarita, Ventura County and Santa Barbara.

The Veil Of Grace Bridal Beauty Team was honored to be asked to participate in an exclusive Crate & Barrel Wedding Event.  This invite only event was hosted at The Grove in Los Angeles, CA for engaged couples to meet wedding vendors.  Crate & Barrel opened the store two hours early to allow couples a peaceful meet and greet experience.

As couples were deciding which knife set they would like their in-laws to buy for them, they also got the opportunity to personally meet VOG owner Samantha #VOGsamantha, VOG senior airbrush makeup artist Sarah #VOGsarah and VOG manager Sydney.  As the registry filled up, brides checked two more things of their wedding list, hair and makeup services!   As you can see below brides took full advantage of their chance to meet our team and try our bridal clip-in hair extensions.

What a wonderful event in such a relaxing environment.  For more information about Crate & Barrel events please visit their website.  In the meantime, check out these behind the scenes photos below!

My name is Samantha Piercy, and I am the owner of Veil Of Grace.  It’s hard to believe, but I have been in the beauty industry for over 13 years now.  While working in a full service salon my first eight years in the industry, I started to gravitate towards bridal makeup and hairstyling.  I quickly fell in love with airbrush makeup for its unique qualities brides have come to love.  After a few years of growing my bridal business, I knew I needed to develop a team of artists that shared my passion for beautifying brides.

I now am the proud director of an amazing team of talented artists who would love to be a part of your wedding day!  I can confidently guarantee that each bride will be in great hands with the makeup artists and hairstylists on the team.  Each team member brings a excellent mix of artistic talent, experience and professionalism.

The Veil Of Grace Beauty Team has been servicing weddings in Los Angeles, Santa Clarita, Thousand Oaks and Ventura County.  The team is expanding to Orange County, San Diego and Temecula. VOG is also excited to announce an exclusive partnership with THM Extensions. We will now be offering clip-in extensions for all our future brides!
