Nicole began sketching faces at an early age, which cultivated her advanced skills in highlighting, contouring, shading and color theory. Her background in art gave her the finesse and intuition to know how to accentuate the best features of every client.
For the last 13 years, Nicole has been unparalleled in the bridal industry. Her work and reputation created a demand too big to fill on her own, so she hand-picked a team she personally trained to her caliber of excellence and precision and has run the power house we all know and love today.
We can’t wait to be a part of your beautiful day!
Lindsey’s been doing hair professionally for 11 years and makeup for 7. She started with Powder more than 10 years ago. She has known she wanted to do hair ever since she was a little girl. She says “My mom can attest to this with how many Barbies I ruined...sorry ma!”
Lindsey says: I LOVE to laugh!! Mostly at my own jokes and I guarantee we will have fun during my time with you! I’m a dog mom to two very homely but adorable (in their own way) Boxers, Bane and Adele. I’m also a very proud Auntie to a niece and nephew. In my spare time I love doing activities outside, traveling, country concerts and cooking!
Shante has been doing makeup for a LONG time! She worked for MAC Cosmetics for over 12 years including management, opening stores, freelancing, and of course working the floor. She’s been with Powder for 6 years officially.
Shante says: I have three children ages 19, 16 and 6...I like to joke I’m gonna start a reality TV show called Teenagers and Toddlers. My life so so busy but I love it! I also lead an amazing team of women in my Rodan + Fields business. I am passionate about fitness and get up at 4:30am every day to fit in a workout before the chaos begins! I can’t wait to meet you!
Maggie has been a part of the Powder, Inc team, as the “hair girl” since 2013. She’s been doing hair in a salon setting since 2002. She started her career with an apprenticeship/assisting program at a large salon in Portland.
Maggie says: I married my husband in 2006, and moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia, while he was serving in the navy. We moved back to Oregon in 2009, where I continued working in a salon, this time in Troutdale, Oregon. We started a family shortly after and now we are the proud parents of two boys who are 6 and 9 years old.
Dina’s been doing makeup for 10 years and hair for 5. She says “I love the power makeup has to transform a person’s personal outlook. Everyone has beauty, but people sometimes don’t see it. Giving people the confidence to change their outlook on themselves is a powerful thing and I love being a part of that.”
Dina says: Outside of work I am passionate about everything fitness and health related, especially holistic health and self care. I was married in 2015 where I hired Powder for my own wedding. I later joined their team in 2016 and love working with the other artists! I am about to have my first son and can’t wait to be a mom!!!
Jennifer originally got her training in theater hair and makeup in 2002. She did theatrical performance styling for four years before she branched out into the wedding industry in 2006. I have now been doing hair professionally behind the chair for 7 years, and managing my salon for nearly 6!
Jennifer says: I myself have been married for 13 years and have 3 beautiful children. I love to spend as much time with my family as possible, and coastal weddings are my favorite, because it usually means a weekend at the beach for all of us! Also, because of my back ground in theatre I absolutely LOVE doing Halloween makeup!
