Wow, hi! I am so happy to meet you. If you’re reading this, that means you’re maybe/possibly interested in my hair and makeup artistry services! I am so excited if that’s the case. Let me tell you a little bit more about me and how we can work together…
My name is Sofia (no surprise there), and I am a bridal, events, and TV/on-camera makeup and hair artist. I am also on-location, which means I don’t work out of a traditional salon or studio; I actually travel to you!
I founded Styled By Sofia in my hometown of Raleigh, NC, in 2017. My older sister was my first official “client,” getting bridal makeup for her wedding… No pressure, right!? Hair and makeup were more or less side gigs for me until 2021, when I finally quit my 9–5 job and took Styled By Sofia and my blogging and ghostwriting business full time.
When it comes to makeup, my specialty is soft, natural glam that accentuates your best features and makes you feel like an ‘elevated’ version of yourself. I have experience working with all skin types, tones, and ethnicities, and I pride myself on curating a very diverse kit. I like to take a skincare-first approach to makeup because I believe that your makeup will only ever look as good as the canvas it’s on. Having natural, type 3b/c curls myself, I love styling natural hair textures as well!
Life has brought my family down to Pensacola, FL, for the time being, and I have loved getting to know the area and connecting with so many incredible hair and makeup clients. However, Raleigh, NC, will always be my home, and I will never say no to a trip back to my old stomping grounds. In fact, I still have a dedicated team of stylists supporting me all over NC and would love to hear about your hair and makeup needs wherever you may be!
Currently, I am serving the greater Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill areas, as well as the Florida panhandle and southern Alabama. I am a well-seasoned and avid traveler so your intimate elopement to a beautiful foreign destination is never out of the question!
My motto is pretty much, “Have kit, will travel.” 🙂
The truth is, talking about myself has never been a favorite pastime of mine. I’m much more interested in hearing about you.
Please fill out my inquiry form with as much information as you care to give (trust me, the more the merrier) about your event or wedding and I will be in touch ASAP! Thanks for spending time with me & trusting me to bring your hair and makeup vision to life!
A million x’s and o’s.
