As San Diego's fastest growing event beauty company, A Toast to Beauty would be honored to be a part of your event. We cannot wait to meet you!
We are A Toast to Beauty, or as our brides like to call us, AT2B.
We are San Diego's fastest-growing wedding and event hair & makeup company for one very simple reason; value.
It takes one quick internet search to find that bridal h&mu artists are a dime a dozen in our neck of the woods. Where A Toast to Beauty stands above the rest is in the value we provide to each and every client. Unlike most bridal hair and makeup companies, we train our team together, as one strong unit, creating exceptional quality and unparalleled consistency for each and every bride that comes our way.
Whether you are in the heart of San Diego or a future Southern California bride, our premiere A Toast to Beauty team will ensure you look and feel your absolute best when it matters most.
First of all, we hold the girl near and dear to our hearts because she was our VERY first hired AT2B makeup artist. We LOVE this girl. She is our little comedian of the group. You'll see!
