May Bride of the Month: Laura

Our gorgeous bride for the month of May is Las Vegas native, Laura. We instantly fell in love with Laura’s elegant and timeless style for her wedding day.

Where are you from?

I am one of the few to call themselves a true Vegas native! Born and raised here in Las Vegas. My parents have been here since the 1960’s!

How did you find Heads Will Roll Beauty Salon?

I actually came across Heads Will Roll by searching on google for wedding hair and makeup in Las Vegas. Many salons and mobile stylists are obviously available being as this is the marriage capital of the world, but I wasn’t after the “cookie cutter” bridal look. I wanted classic and timeless. After looking through a few photos I knew I had found the one.



Tell us more about your wedding day, from the planning, your location, dress, any special moments you’d like to share.

I don’t even know how to go about describing how special my dress is.It’s made by Jenny Packham, from her Wonder collection. These dresses are styled after the early 20th century, so going with vintage hair and makeup was a must! All it took was one glimpse of the beading on the back and I knew it was the one even still on the rack in the garment bag! Those feelings were affirmed with the matching hand beaded shoes. 😉

I knew soon after getting engaged that I wanted to get married where my parents were married in 1975, (and still going strong!) at The Little Church of The West. I’ve always loved the charm and history of the church as well, and since we were going to be married at the end of October, the rustic, dark wood of the church went perfectly with our theme.


We had our reception at Lawry’s the Prime Rib. I love the Art Deco theme and their legendary service is something everyone should experience. And since we had a rather intimate wedding of about 50 people, Lawry’s provided a beautiful banquet room that set for a perfect intimate and romantic atmosphere. Food was a big priority for us when we started planning, I wanted to serve a meal they wouldn’t forget!

How was your HWR experience, from your first inquiry to the end of your appointment?

My experience was fabulous from initial contact through my wedding day. Sarah is prompt, very professional and answered all questions I had thoroughly. Made a process I thought was going to be a nightmare into a cakewalk! She assured me Alyssa, my stylist would give me exactly what I was after and she did tenfold! From the moment I met my stylist Alyssa at our trial run, she put me at ease. Great energy, style and so passionate about what she does. I cried when I saw the pictures the photographer took as Alyssa was doing my makeup and hair on my wedding day. I can cherish and relive my experience through those photos.


Tell us more about why you love the vintage style. What were your inspirations for your hair and makeup look for your wedding day?

I’ve always said I was born in the wrong era because I’m obsessed with all things vintage.I think the vintage hair and makeup look is timeless and romantic. I knew the classic red lips and pretty pin curls would be the perfect compliment to my dress!

Thank you Heads will Roll Salon and Alyssa Velasquez for my making my special day exceptional and making me look vintage glam perfection! I will highly recommend you to anyone I know looking for your services.
