Designer Styles

Your go-to, onsite, special event stylist

Hello, my name is Stephanie and I am the owner of Designer Styles. I graduated from Aveda Institute of Minneapolis in 2014, but my love for hair styling started way before then. My uncle was an Aveda educator and started teaching me hair when I was just a kid. I had my first wedding party when I was just 15 or 16, when one of my family members didn't book a stylist for the bridesmaids. I quickly jumped in and styled the 5 bridesmaids in the basement bathroom. Ever since then I have had a passion for styling. I have been doing special event hair professionally since I graduated Cosmetology school in 2014. I specalize in large wedding parties and make sure the morning runs smooth and stress-free.

Another fun fact about me, I am a combat Veteran and deployed to Afghanistan in 2013. I was an engineer but my military unit referred to me as the company hair stylist!

I offer a military discount if either the bride or groom is a Combat Veteran! Valid DD214 is required to recieve the discount 🤍

I am Currently booking for 2025

 Don’t bother looking for another hairstylist because Stephanie is it! I had originally met her while being a part of different bridal party and immediately knew I had to book her for my wedding! Once she was done with all my bridesmaids one of them even asked for her business card for her wedding. Stephanie is a true expert and was able to pull off every hairstyle we asked her to do. I had 12 bridesmaids and she was able to complete each unique hairstyle in under 5 hours. It was a wonderful experience and I’m so happy with how it turned out and lasted through the night.

 I would 1000% recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for someone to do bridal hair! She was great to work with from the trail to wedding day! She got all my bridesmaids (who had long/thick hair) and myself done on time and even took the time to do my makeup. She is the sweetest and super personable. All my girls loved their hair!! We had styles ranging from up-dos, half up, braids, etc! ✨

 When I got married, my hair was my biggest worry. However, that worry was gone after 2 minutes of chatting with Stephanie!! I booked her about a year in advance and communication was amazing throughout that whole time. Stephanie was able to guide me on how to find extensions and she did wonders with them! My hair was EXACTLY what I was hoping for. It was full, stunning, and it lasted the whole day! I cannot recommend Stephanie enough for your big day. She was so personable and fun to talk with! Stephanie and her assistant were able to style 16 ladies in less than 7 hours!! She will be the one who I recommend to other brides from now on!!

 Cannot recommend her more!!! She did the greatest job bringing my dream hair to life! It was everything I wanted and more! My bridesmaids all loved their hair as well, everyone had more volume and perfection than they even expected. I wanted a “whimsical fairytale braid” and with only those directions she made everything absolutely perfect!💕💕

 Stephanie was wonderful to work with! Fast response times to messages and very professional. On the day of my wedding she arrived to the location even before I arrived! Everyone was very pleased with their hair on the day of the wedding and Stephanie made sure everything was secured and would stay put for the day. I would highly recommend her services!

 I couldn’t be happier with how my hair turned out for my wedding reception day! I opted out of doing a trial with her as she told me she was very comfortable with the style I was looking for, and man was she right! She brought my vision to life just from a couple of pictures I showed her and was absolutely wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for a hair stylist!
