Meet our team

In 2015, Hilda passed on the baton of her makeup studio to her most trusted friend and colleague of 19 years, Alina Christine. Her dedication and commitment made it easy for Hilda to take this step. “Even when we started at 2am in the morning to get the wedding party ready by 7am, Alina was always by Hilda’s side, learning and preparing for the time that she would take over.” That’s not to say that Hilda won’t still be working but the roles have changed. Alina Christine is now the lead and Hilda works as needed.

Hilda Kershman
Hilda KershmanOwner/Makeup Artist
Hilda Kershman is a pioneer in the wedding makeup and hairstyling industry, even though she is only 29, lol! ….. She saw a need for artist’s to go on location for the convenience of the bride and her wedding party. Understanding that Houston was a multi-cultural city, she made it a point to study and learn various wedding religions, customs and traditions that has become a vital part of what she does when it comes to hair and makeup. She was taken by surprise many ago when asked if she could do certain types of hair or women of various types, to which she replied, ” An artist isn’t a true artist if she isn’t capable of doing every woman’s hair and makeup and to her satisfaction.”

Knowledge is key in every profession and she has taken it to a higher level. From creating a hairstyle high enough to be closer to Jesus, to knowing how to drape and pin a beautiful Sari. She understands the significance of a Vietnamese ceremony hat, and how to create a beautiful yet simple style for that lovely Chinese dress or Kimono. More importantly, that she has the knack of creating a master piece for each individual based on their personality and life style. Hilda say’s, “It’s all about whatever makes the person feel 100% confident and ready to perform at any event.”

Being a makeup artist as a profession has been a lot of fun. “I have traveled all around the United States and met so many wonderful people. It allowed my creative side to explode and my serious business side had it’s place too! The world has been my canvas and I love every minute of it.”
