Meet Perfect Day Beauty – Nashville Wedding Hair and MakeUp Artist

June 17, 2020

For today’s Nashville Wedding Vendor Feature I want to introduce you to Shani and the team at Perfect Day Beauty! I first met Shani in 2017 for a Solar Eclipse wedding! Shani and I worked with a couple getting married at the Adventure Science Center on the day of the Nashville eclipse. Since then, Shani and I have done several wedding shoots together and I always am obsessed with the bride’s final look! Learn more about Perfect Day Beauty and their Nashville wedding hair and makeup services below!

What is your favorite part of what you do and what do you love most about Nashville wedding days?

Handing over the mirror after finishing any bride’s or bridesmaid’s look is like a mini adrenaline rush. Seeing someone really love the way they look is why we do this. Also building relationships with new people! Clients and vendors!


What is one piece of advice you have for couples planning their Nashville weddings?

Ask your makeup artist about the cleanliness of their kit and how they sanitize things. The old saying “you get what you pay for” really rings true with hair and makeup. You may be paying for pink eye or a skin infection.


What do you recommend Nashville brides look for when booking a hair and makeup artist or team?

Look for pictures of brides they’ve done wearing hair and makeup looks you’re interested in trying on. If you’re more of a classic, timeless bride you may want to look at artists with classic, clean makeup in their portfolio. If you’re more of a boho bride, you’ll want an artist that specializes in boho hair and makeup. Read reviews!


Painting, reading, listening to podcasts, chasing kids around, watching the kids play sports, live music, creative makeup looks.


What is one of your favorite wedding requests you’ve received?

I was asked to do makeup on a bride’s 99 year old grandmother last year. She was so sweet and wanted to be a part of the girl fun. It was a challenge but a great experience.
I also really love doing Indian weddings. It’s a whole new world of glam. I stay to help pin everything and put the bride’s jewelry on.
