About

 

Hi there!

 

I am Megan, the "MG" in "MG Hair and Makeup" and after 2 decades in both the wedding and beauty industries, and teaching pros of all categories, I decided to dedicate more time to helping others succeed through my successes and failures. (Yes, I have made plenty of very costly mistakes.) 

 

My personal background (before the world of weddings) was in outside sales (I went door to door in NYC selling yellow pages advertising to small businesses - and yes, that was a L-O-N-G time ago), education and my bachelor's degree is in Psychology with a minor in Art & Design.

 

I started my wedding business, MG Hair and Makeup in 2002 after seeing a need for a standardized way for artists to be able to do what they love and for brides and their wedding parties to be able to get ready where they want and look how they want regardless of their geographic location.

 

There are multiple in-person seminars, events and workshops I speak at across the globe, but not everyone can make it in person and pros kept asking if there were online options to learn no matter where you are -- and so, our online courses began.

 

I do also take on a select few clients each year for one-on-one business coaching.

 

On a more personal level, I love houseplants (though I can only keep a select few alive), binge-watching Law & Order (still love the older ones), and a good glass of red wine.

 

Some may say I am a bit of a workaholic but when you love what you do, is it *really* work?

 

For those of you who aren't familiar with me or MG Hair and Makeup, I've included my company and personal bios below:
