Welcome to the Glam Fam

Lou Stevens with Monte

“A brides personal style must guide every aspect of her wedding. Wedding hair and makeup expert Lou Stevens takes time to get to know each brides’ story and style and then creates a beautiful hair and makeup design to reflect that spirit. A true artist, Lou listens first then proceeds with inspiration. The results are gorgeous. I couldn’t be happier that Lou and the Glam Squad use, showcase, and sell my product line.” – Monte Durham, Say Yes to the Dress : Atlanta

MEET LOU

Wedding hair and makeup expert Lou Stevens has devoted her life to helping brides realize their personal style and beauty vision. With more than 26 years of wedding styling experience, Lou creates designs from modern to classic and subtle to glamorous. From the moment Lou meets a bride and hears her personal story, she begins to create and refine a look for that brides wedding and special events that is a perfect fit.

Lou wanted to work in the beauty industry ever since she was a young child, inspired by her stylist mother and Frank’s Barbershop (a one chair shop she walked past every day on her way to kindergarten in Kenosha, WI). In fact, Lou’s first business was a one chair mobile salon she ran from her home. Lou grew that service into The Glam Squad, now a leading on site hair and makeup company with more than 25 stylists. They provide full beauty services for more than 300 weddings each year.

Lou attributes her company’s success to relationship building. Her favorite part of the process is meeting the brides, hearing their love stories, and seeing them through the big day and beyond.

A pioneer in the on-site bridal beauty business, Lou has trained, taught and worked with other artists and celebrities from Chicago, to Richmond, to New York. Lou is also a sought after speaker for wedding shows, women’s group and team building seminars.

Amanda grew up watching her Grandmother and her Aunt (Lou Stevens) make women beautiful and contribute to the best day of their lives, their wedding day. Encouraged by her husband, Amanda followed her true passion as a wedding hairstylist and makeup artist by attending the AVEDA Institute in Orlando, Florida. Amanda graduated as the valedictorian of her class and had the opportunity to work on the worlds largest on location photo shoot for Pageantry and Prom Time Magazines during that time.

After extensive hair and makeup training, Amanda freelanced throughout Florida with various established artists in the area, focusing on weddings. She has been featured individually as well as with Lou Stevens Glam Squad in The Knot Magazine, Southern Weddings, Richmond Weddings, Richmond Bride, Virginia Living, as well as on several blogs including Borrowed and Blue, Lover.ly, The Lovely Find and Every Last Detail.

One of the most exciting times for Amanda was when she was flipping through a current issue of BRIDES magazine, and saw that Lou Stevens Glam Squad had been named one of the Top Bridal Salons in America! It is something that she, and all the “glammies’ are very proud of!
