Hi, my name is Lili Altnether!
Thank you you visiting my page and taking the time get to know me.
Growing up, I always had a passion to create. I always admired artists of all kinds and photography. However I grew up in the restaurant business, so I found myself cooking and answering phones a lot! My parents own and operate a restaurant in Webster Groves and they've been open for 38 years! Between the ages of nine-seventeen, I spent every day after school and Saturdays at the business. I guess that's where you can say I got my work ethic from. It's a grind, and that's all I know.
In 2016, I began playing more and more with hair and make up. Mainly on friends and family. Finally in 2017, I told my husband I was ready to start something new. I took a local make up certification course and traveled to the Make Up First School in Chicago to do a hair styling for make up artist course. From there, I came back home and did many one-on-one hands on classes with other artists in our St. Louis community for both hair and make up. From that I have expanded my knowledge so much. I have been on multiple St. Louis hair and make up teams and freelanced a lot with many photographers. I love this "wedding community" we have in St. Louis! We are constantly building each other up and helping each other when we can. I am so grateful to have made many friends in the industry!
Hair and Make up to me is very personal. I like to help each of my clients create a look that they love to best fit them. One of my favorite quotes is, "Be yourself, everyone is taken". It is something I think about with each client. I want you to look beautiful and feel amazing in your skin. Let me help you create a look just for you!
Aside from doing make up and hair, I am married to best friend Adam and we have a wonderful, fierce two year old daughter and a Great Dane names Zeus. So on the rare off day, you'll find me hanging out with my crew.
Thank you again for taking the time to get to know me! I look forward to meeting you!
