"I know almost nothing about hair and makeup, and they took my vary vague vision and made me feel like a goddess on my wedding day." - Megan W.
How it All Started.
When people ask us how Beauty On Set was created, we literally laugh out loud because it didn't happen on purpose. It's as if we closed our eyes, tapped our feet, counted to 10 and when we opened our eyes our business baby was born. If only it was that easy, but sometimes, it feels that way. When a business is created out of love and passion, work doesn't feel like work. So here we are, two sisters, with no intentions of starting a beauty company, living proof that "what's meant to be, will find a way." With over 10 years of industry experience, we proudly serve our clientele with all the love, kindness, and compassion. We offer luxury beauty experiences that allows you to pause, prepare, pamper and move into a space where you feel in control of the day. We are honored and humbled to introduce you to Olivia Nierhake and Mollie Nierhake, founding owners and sisters of Beauty On Set.
Our Extended Family, The Beauty On Set Team
That's right! There's more sisters! Beauty on Set has a team of contracted artist and stylist to add more fun to the party! This helps us handle larger parties and glam up more brides! We have been blessed to work with some of these women for over 7+ years. It takes a special group to come together and have the same passion for making someones big day, the best day. Here are some familiar faces you may see hanging out with us on your wedding morning!
What our brides are saying about us..
They were so sweet, listened to everything I wanted and were always making sure I had everything I needed. Choosing the people who are with you on your special day is really important and these gals made me feel relaxed and at ease, like I was just hangin with my girlfriends! Also the hair and makeup were incredible, I had an updo and I asked for natural makeup and it couldn't have been more perfect. You will not go wrong with hiring them for your special event. - Grace E.
Beauty on Set is the most incredible hair and makeup team ever!!! I worked with Mollie and Bre for hair and makeup for both my engagement photos and wedding day, and I seriously have never looked more gorgeous in my entire life. They were such a joy to work with, always kind and responsive to emails, and took my Pinterest board dreams and made them a reality. For my wedding look, Mollie created a beautiful reverse fishtail braid, which made me look like an actual Disney princess. The soft curls and delicate braid worked so well with my dress and I can't stop looking at photos. On my actual wedding day, it was literally the biggest storm the Bay Area had seen in years lol, but Bre thankfully was able to stay with us until the end of the ceremony not only touching up my hair and makeup but my entire wedding party too. Bre also went ABOVE and beyond, running around with me and our photographer to help hold my dress, reposition my veil or fix my hair mid-photo session. I cannot thank Bre enough! Mollie and Bre are nothing short of artists, and the kindest people too! I loved my hair and makeup SO much that I am already booking them for another event. I truly can't imagine working with any other HMU company. - Sarah M.
They are such a professional and talented team, and truly bring a positive and fun attitude on the day of the wedding. I especially loved how they could do a gorgeous and unique hair and makeup look for each member of my bridal party. Highly recommend Beauty On Set for wedding hair and makeup! - Kelsey B.
Beauty On Set is amazing! Mollie did the makeup for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding, and she did an absolutely gorgeous job!!! Everyone looked stunning! I LOVED working with her. She is really sweet, thoughtful, professional, relaxed, makes the process really fun, and she is extremely talented! She is great at giving a natural look, and was so wonderful about listening to what everyone wanted and tailoring the makeup for each of us. I really cannot recommend her more highly--she is incredible!!! Thank you for the best wedding makeup experience I could have hoped for, Mollie! I feel so lucky! - M.P.
Hiring Mollie from Beauty On Set to do my hair and makeup was one of the best wedding planning choices I made. I was married this year in September and Mollie travelled up to the Mendocino coast for my wedding. She was able to deliver the hair and makeup look I wanted and she made it an absolute pleasure. She's calm, kind, and talented, which is very important on your wedding day. She was also very cool about working around the makeup allergy sensitivities I have and I didn't have to compromise on the look at all. In summary, she went above and beyond. I'll have to go to swanky parties more often to find a reason to get all made up by her again. Especially if you're getting married in Mendocino county, book Beauty on Set, the talent is tops. - Jeanne S.
Thank you for making me feel like the best version of myself. - Ashley G.
From the moment I arrived for my hair and makeup trial, to having my hair/makeup done for welcome drinks the night before my wedding, to my wedding day, Olivia was not only on time and professional, but her positive attitude and fun and easy vibes really made each time meeting with her something I looked forward to. She was super communicative and detailed in scheduling each makeup session. She was able to capture my desired look every time. I truly felt beautiful on my wedding day and my hair/makeup lasted perfectly throughout the entire evening. When I received my wedding pictures, I was still just obsessed with my look and couldn't imagine it any other way. I loved working with Olivia and will absolutely book her for future events. I would highly recommend her to anyone. - Marisa H.
They have always been reliable, on time, and simply, makeup and hair GENIUSES. - Amber L.
