Life and Work with Natalia LoPresto

Today we’d like to introduce you to Natalia LoPresto.

Natalia, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Since childhood, I have been fascinated by the concept of beauty. There are many moments in a lifetime that capture the beauty of a woman, but nothing compares to a beaming bride on her wedding day. Beauty is seen everywhere, from the bride in her gorgeous gown to her colorfully coordinated bridesmaids, sprays of her favorite flowers, and even to the ethereal atmosphere of the ceremony. In front of a special crowd of family and friends, it all culminates to the bride and groom finally saying “I do”. Seeming so much like out of a fairy tale, I absolutely love being a part of it!

Throughout my twenty years being a hairdresser, bridal beauty has always remained my true passion. I believe the bride and her bridal party should feel as beautiful as a fairy tale.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I believe in education. I love being a hairdresser, doing complete look for a client with color and cut, make them happy. When I thought that I can do something even more creative I started taking classes from the best people in the industry. To me, Bridal Artistry is like an extension, something special of hairdressing. I always knew if I like what I do, I can make a living. Not just have a hobby. I am a people person, that helps! I love people, I am happy to be part of a special day for the bride. I am always searching for new ideas, looks, products. I even train myself (still!) on my beloved mannequin, or just invite my clients to practice something I recently learned. Don’t be afraid to work for free at least in the beginning. There would be always better people in your profession. Then you will learn from them and become like them or better,

Please tell us about Modern Bride by Natalia.
I specialize in up-dos and special occasion styling. Additionally, my extensive, on-going training in cosmetology allows me to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and bridal looks.

My company Modern Bride by Natalia houses a highly talented and reliable team of professional freelance makeup and hair artists to ensure that the bridal party is taken care of with the highest level of detail, for all your beauty needs. I always meet with a bride for a trial consultation at least a couple of months before the wedding, and make recommendations for her hairstyle and makeup. We look at inspirational pictures and choose what best for her. Still, she is the most important person in the room. I welcome and value her input. I listen because my job is to achieve the look she has always dreamed of for her wedding day. I will ensure the bridal party feels nothing short but part of a fairy tale.

Do you think there are structural or other barriers impeding the emergence of more female leaders?
I don’t think I have barriers in my industry.
