About The Owner

Hi Babes!

My name is Raina Gaon and I am the founder of Bristle + Bride. I followed my heart into the beauty world in 2011 as I attended Paul Michell and began my first job at a blowout bar. I learned how much I enjoyed styling hair and how happy it made me to make my clients look and feel beautiful…but I knew that I wanted to lean into a path that was even more personable, something where I could really make a difference for my clients. I decided in 2015 to step out from behind the chair and start taking on-location jobs with my regular clients, doing glam for galas, bar/bat mitzvahs, dinner parties and styling for weddings.

Being a part of the bridal experience felt so rewarding and magical, I knew that the wedding industry was where I belonged. I thrived off of the feeling of being a part of one of the most special days of somebody’s life and making them feel and look their very best. I began to reserve my weekends for wedding party glam while continuing to see my regulars during the week. I quickly realized how in-demand the wedding industry was and how difficult and stressful it was for brides to have to coordinate so many different vendors into their day. I knew that I could make the experience so much easier by providing an all-inclusive experience where booking your entire wedding day glam would become a seamless process you can trust.

Bristle + Bride was born in 2018, with the belief that you should feel two ways on your wedding day- the most loved, and the most beautiful. You can leave the rest to us. I have handpicked creative, talented, and charming artists who have the same goal in mind. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. It is filled with emotion, excitement, and vision; and we feel honored to help every bride make that vision come to life.
