Confession. For years I never let a professional touch my hair. I mean, not even a trim. I would always cut my own hair and rarely have I dyed it. This is partly because I have trust issues, and partly because I could hardly commit to an appointment with my crazy schedule. All of this changed recently when I finally let my guard down, bit the bullet, and booked with Demi at Roots Southern Salon. I first met Demi when we were both working a styled wedding shoot (which was published in Borrowed & Blue). While I was working my makeup magic, I was mesmerized by her amazing hair skills. When it
came to my birthday month all I really wanted was to treat myself to a cut and bayalage and boy did she deliver.
I was absolutely thrilled at the results. Not only did she do a phenomenal job, but from start to finish I felt like a queen. Her sweet and bubbly personality had me relaxed, laughing, and fully enjoying my pampering. Not to mention at the salon you have a bird's eye view of the Savannah River. After my luxurious experience, I knew I had to share with the world. Everyone, meet Demi.
Hi all! I am a Savannah transplant, native to the heart of Cajun Country in southern Louisiana. I am a licensed Master Cosmetologist in both states with three years under my belt. I have a great deal of experience in formal hair and makeup styling for events such as weddings, and styling for print and commercial shoots. I have had the absolute pleasure of working alongside many talented people, and am happy to have had my work featured in numerous publications, both local and national: Savannah Soirée, The Wedding Wire, and The Knot are amongst my proudest. I currently work at Roots Southern Salon in downtown Savannah: the only salon to offer a panoramic view of the beautiful Savannah River from our design floor. I hope to continue to grow in the years to come by expanding my portfolio, talents, and network in this beautiful unique city.
Thank you for stopping by Demi! I can't wait to work again with you soon and more importantly, let you work your magic on me! ;) Demi is one of my trusted and featured hair stylists and makeup artists that I choose to work with for weddings as well. If you have a large wedding party, she's one of the top people I contact to make a phenomenal glam squad happen!
Watch Demi on WSAV the Bridge!
