Tell me a little bit about your business!
Fusing their talents, impeccable reputations, and over 25 years of combined experience, Jae Lee Paredes and Joy Lager decided to merge and create the JL Makeup Studio & Beauty Boutique to accommodate the ever-growing bridal industry in and around Pittsburgh. We opened our doors in October of 2015. We are a boutique, luxury hair and makeup company specializing in on-location bridal services. We also offer a variety of in-studio services at our South Hills location including facial/full body waxing, lash tints and lifts, lash extensions, microblading, and targeted skin care treatments.
JL Studio is more than just a company you’ve hired to do your hair and makeup; we will give you an experience of a lifetime! Our small and intimate team of stylists have been carefully chosen based on their years of experience, skill level, personality, and professionalism. Having a team such as this has allowed us to perfect the level of service we provide to each and every bride. With a staff of over 20 artists, we are confident that we have the perfect fit for any client.
What makes your work unique?
Ensuring that our brides feel and look their absolute best is extremely important to us. We carefully listen and are always responsive to the wishes and needs of our brides, as genuine care is our highest priority. We are able to create exactly the look you are envisioning for your wedding day and that is something we take great pride in. Our clients describe our staff as“prompt and quick to reply to emails/texts, accommodating, patient, having a calm demeanor, and pleasant to be around, all while delivering top notch, on-trend, hair and makeup services!”
We are a diverse team of artists and can accommodate any skin care concern, ethnicity, or hair type. Every artist on our team is licensed and fully insured!
What is your ideal client like?
Our ideal bridal client is one who is seeking the ease and luxury of a booking a professional team of makeup artists and hair stylists to be a part of their big day!
How do you determine what look a bride is going for?
We have a welcome packet and brochure that is mailed to each client. This kit contains info that will help our clients prepare for their services. It also includes various images and examples of our most popular bridal looks to help them get a better idea of the look they are going for. Things such as the time of the day, type of wedding, location of the event, color theme, and style of the bride’s dress are all taken into account and help us to create a look that is complimentary to the event.
Do you provide on-location services?
Of course! While our studio is a spacious and beautiful location to get ready for your big day, most all of our services are provided on-location.
